Plugging Along

I quilted my Valentine wall hanging and all I have is the binding left. I fired up my HQ16 and totally forgot how to use it!!!  So, this project took a bit longer than I'd hoped. I wish I'd turned some of the fabrics around, but I did think to put February 14 in the middle!!! Candy hearts are on the back. I did not get these fabrics at a LQS -- bought them before I became a fabric snob.

Also, finished my owl tooth fairy pillow and put it in the mail...darn, no pic first. 

I also did one row on A Modern Twist...not much, but it's moved forward in its completion. 

I did a Dear Jane block, A-6 Uncle Homer. It was pretty easy and only took a little over a half hour, but I had to rip out two seams and should have gone more quickly. 

In between seams, I did half a dozen flying geese for Easy Street. I think I may have to give it it's own 15 minutes because I have a ton to make. LOL

Still haven't decided about my sewing machine, words of wisdom?

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…
