comments frustration

I see so many lovely items posted by my fellow bloggers.  I am finding it more and more difficult to be able to read those little boxes of letters that they systems prompts you to enter (to prove you are not a robot) or  you cannot post your comment.

Ignored Blog

So my little blog has felt a little ignored lately. Now that I have more free time on my hands it's time to get back into the swing of things.  My son moved out as fast as he moved in, which leaves me with a mess to clean up  but that's ok.  I think I might like my sewing room upstairs, however I do miss the babies!!!  Though I don't miss toys all over the place.  I didn't think I would get attached that fast.
Anyway, moving things around allowed me to take stock of projects I have in the works as well as make the executive decision to toss unwanted projects or better yet, dismantle them.  All items needing sandwiched and quilted are in a stack.  All projects are on containers and on the shelf.  Fabric is a whole other issue.  Not sure what to do with all of it it.  I have available space again in the family room and basement so maybe it will get stored down there???  not sure yet.

All I know is fall will be here soon and I love doing my handquilting at that time so I need to take stock and get things in gear.  I plan to hammer out some UFO's soon.....

UFO Finished

I actually got something done.  Yes me.  This is a UFO from a round robin about 10 years ago.   It has been pieced for some time, Ann Fry did the quilting for me and I finished up the binding last weekend.

Girls Day Results

Last weekend I was blessed with spending an entire day with some very dear friends playing with our fabric and learning how to make a table runner that is just so stinking easy to do and cute too.  However, as I wanted to line mirror image my little chefs as much as possible I ended up loosing about 8-12 inches which shortened it considerable BUT it is still cute as can be!
I also turned a panel of cute quilt sayings into a wall hanging.  I had this bright idea that it would be a lap throw but my eyes were bigger than the fabric wanted to be but it will look cute on the wall.
I am not sure where all the bloggers have gone.  I miss seeing all the post of just thoughts and/or photos of projects completed or in the works.
