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.

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.
