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!

Surgery

September 15, 2010

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.


I am a very bad blogger!

I have neglected my blog for many months! Apparently I don’t have much to say, also I stay very busy.

A couple weeks ago I entered a giveaway at Featherstone Quiltworks  and I won! Thanks so much Sue, I love checking your blog.

Here is my awesome prize. I can’t wait to use it.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day Holiday and hopefully I won’t be such a bad blogger
