2013 NewFO Challenge


Today is the last day you can post a comment for the giveaway  for the  "Grow Your Blog" party, so please click through to this post and say "Hi!"  I will announce the winner tomorrow

I am linking up the the 2013 NewFo Challenge from Cat Patches! So, here's what's been going on with me in January. 

Started and finished the top for the Sweetheart Mystery. 





Started and finished a wall hanging for the "Project Quilting" at Persimon Dreams, which I'm probably not going to do again.  I have too much on my plate to stop and do something start-finish in one month. :(





Finished Baltimore Halloween, all but the eyes, spider eyes and legs and the owl's feet. 




Sewed some Dear Jane blocks. 







Did three steps of Easy Street (at least some of the three steps). 





Finished my pot holder and mitt. I have three more sets to do. 








Finished the stop sign wall hanging, well, I need to tie off my threads and do the binding, but it's close. 




Started and finished a wall hanging for the Project Quilting, which I'm probably not going to do again.  I have too much on my plate to stop and do something start-finish in one month. :(





I finished four aprons for my grandchildren. 




I started and finished the Merry Mayhem's Mystery quilt. Well, it's a top, at least. <grin> Looks a bit wavy, but it's not really. 





Thanks for stopping by. More soon.

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 shams...in 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…

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…

Getting Back to Sewing

Sorry, I've been trying to re-arrange my studio and just didn't seem to get back to sewing/quilting, but I'm forging ahead because I missed all of January's blocks of the 365 Challenge! These are really tiny and I can see I need to be much more accurate with my cutting/sewing. LOL I'm using all stash fabrics, so my dark may not be dark enough and my lights might not be light enough, but my record for finishing projects prohibited me from spending money on this one!! 
Here's February 12, 2016 block: 


Now, here's the beginning of the blue and white quilt that I'm making. I designed it in EQ7 and the rows of the top left corner have been sewn together, so we'll see how accurate EQ7 is when I go to sew the diagonal rows together.  I am using it as leaders/enders for the 365 Challenge because they took a bunch of seams so more rows are finished without realizing it. A good thing.
Just want to mention that my design wall is four 2' pieces of that foa…
