I went to a workshop for scrapbooking today. I've tried to get into this hobby and feel so overwhelmed with 30 years of photos piled up so high.

Today, I purchased one of those organizing boxes and have finished filing one bin of photos. Two more bins to go. I need more dividers to really get the job done.

I have a macular hole in my right eye and surgery can be done in hopes to gain some vision back--poor odds, I hear. However, the success of the surgery is mainly in the recovery process which means I have to look down for the first two weeks after it's done so this gas bubble that put in there fills the hole. That's 24/7!!! Some say you get a few minutes each hour to bathe, brush teeth, etc., but, otherwise, you must keep your head down so I'm planning on the TV being on the floor and getting a massage chair (the kind with the hole) and just sitting in it for two weeks straight. I'll need something for the bed so that it forces me to sleep on my stomach and so I can breathe, too! Thought I'd get the photos ready and scrapbook the entire time. Will take some planning, but I need to be sure nothing I'll need is above my head...not looking forward to this, but the alternative is blindness...not something that was in my life plan, either. Has anyone ever heard or known someone that I could talk with about it?

We shall see...

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
