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...

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.
