Okay, it's pouring down rain today, so no swimming, probably.

I did some work on the studio in the wee hours, but still have some boxes that I can't seem to find.

I'm thinking of shopping today instead of working on the house. Maybe I'll get my new drivers license today. I want to stop for one of those Smart Shoppers so I can start remembering what I need when shopping.

I want to go to Costco and pick up one of those six-drawer mobile cabinets or maybe two of them. I saw them online at the Container Store for something like $60 and they are at Costco for about $20.

I've also decided to start playing tennis again and signed up for beginner lessons at the nearby tennis club. They begin tomorrow for 12 weeks. Since I'm not a member, it will cost more, but what's more important than your health? Not money, of course.

I still haven't gotten my HQ16 put back together yet, but I just can't decide which project to do! Maybe I should stop by the LQS and start something completely new?

I think I will join the Quiltathon tomorrow and see how that goes, has anyone ever done this?

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!


Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?

I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:

It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
