I am so ashamed that I have not posted to my blog in nearly 2 years! I post on Facebook often so my blog has gone by the wayside. I am going to join Bonnie Hunter in her mystery quilt so wanted to show some progress when I make  some progress…..

I have been gathering fabrics from stash and adding some to my stash so hopefully I will see progress soon.

My WIP Wednesday

December 8, 2010

The following quilt has been on my machine WAY too long. I ave made some progress on it.

I have never had a desire to hand sew anything but I have been admiring Bonnie Hunters hexagons and …….yes I had to try some.

Like Bonnie said “they are addicting” I still have a very long way before I could make anything out of them but I am enjoying them.

If I have inserted the pix right you should be able to click on them to make them bigger.

I hope everyone isn’t stressing too much trying to get everything done before the holidays.

Have a great day.

Note To Self Quilt

September 27, 2010

Thanks to Judy L’s generosity I am working on her Note To Self quilt along quiilt. I’m off recuperating from gallbladder surgery and I am actually getting some sewing done. Not as much as I hope cause other things is cutting into my sewing time.

Here is my version:

Hope everyone has a great week. I know I will when I get these darn staples out Wednesday. They stick!

I went to Batesville for preadmission today. My surgery for gallbladder removal will be at 10:30 Monday. I will have to spend the night then get to come home Tuesday. I’ll be glad to not have this pain anymore.

Another post, woohoo I’m on a roll.

I am trying real hard to not ignore my blog. I am also trying to ignore this pain my gallbladder is causing. Hope I can make it till the 20th cause it is coming out!

I love string quilts and have wanted one for a long time. I have started a few with different techniques but it never gets done. I just can’t sew it to paper then strip all that paper off. I admire people that can but it isn’t for me. I have sewed it to the thinnest muslin I can find and then it is too thick, hence the never getting done part. I found a pattern on Hancocks of Paducah website, free to download, that looks like a string quilt but is actually strips sewed together, then sewed into a tube, then cut with a triangle ruler. I love it and it has gone pretty fast. You can click pic to enlarge.

I have all the blocks done and hope to be able to sew some more later today. I probably won’t get to sew tomorrow or Friday as Lynn has Doctor appointments.

Hope everyone is getting to do something they love and hope all of you have a great week.
