My Blogging Bad

Ugh, I know you know what I'm about to do, apologize for not blocking for such a long time. I'm sorry...that's done! Moving on. Catching up. 

Today, I've been working on my Bean Bags. I just wanted to. I should be planting and cleaning and household stuff, but that's not very interesting or rewarding. LOL

I've been toying with the idea of replacing my HQ Handiquilter for a newer model, but the idea of selling my current one first makes me question why, now that it's upgraded and serviced and it's like new. Sign.

I just bought a Brother Scan and Cut for my Baltimore applique projects, hoping to speed these up a bit. I love the process of all the cutting of FP and the cutting all the fabric, but I do want to get some of them finished. LOL  If you have any fabric cutting tips for the SnC, please share in the comments section. I have "Analysis Paralysis" - which mat to use, whether I need to starch or not, etc. !

I'm one of those that love to make lists and I found the Bullet Journal system sometime in February (long after the world found it) so I've been keeping a journal/list of all of have to do (hundreds) and all I'd like to do (hundreds) and all I've done (3, and that's cheating). It's a pretty simple system, just write the date and list everything. I've found that re-writing it makes me want to get it done, but I still don't do it!!! I have been away helping my daughter and didn't take it with me so I missed a couple weeks, but I've stuck with it when I got it back. I seemed to have fallen off the blogging wagon because jotting down stuff in my journal is easier and since I also have the "Laziness Disorder," reading blogs, Pinterest, FB, seem to fill my day. 

I also recently joined a FB list 365/30 Lists: Philofaxers! I started using today and the list is "Top 10 Favorite Movies."  I'll share a few with you. Pretty Woman, of course, and Sixth Sense (see any dead people lately?) is a favorite, too.  What are your 10 Favorites?  Don't think too hard or too long, the task will become overwhelming.

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.
