What I've Been Up To

These last few days, I've had to make trips to Bismarck.

It's unusual for us to have to go to Bismarck more than once a week, but that's the way that it worked out this week.

But, in the evenings, I have been piecing.

I'm working on my project to use up the fabric I don't absolutely LOVE, so I cut a PILE of fat quarters into 10" squares and then strips, and I have been making Twister Quilts tops.  I'm going to be sending the tops to Alycia for QOV.

Those of you who've been with me for a while remember the trouble I got into for having a tutorial up.  However, I see that there's at least one other tutorial online now.  I wonder if she got in trouble.


It's a fun quilt to do and it uses up LOTS of fabric and when you have fabric that's not the most lovely stuff, it still looks great in this quilt.

I have two finished and a couple more in various stages.  My goal is to finish seven tops to send her by the end of this month.

Tomorrow, I'm going on a quilt shop bus tour with my daughter.  I was going to go with my best friend (you know, the one I infected with quilt pox), but she's not able to go, and though I will miss her company TERRIBLY, I'm sanguine, and the show MUST go on!  :-)

I'll take my daughter with me who will be absolutely thrilled when I tell her that she's going after all.

We'll be sure and take lost of pictures and share what adventures we had on Sunday.

I sent an email to your hotmail account (if you still have that one.) It was in my address book. I guess I'll find out if it come back or not. I couldn't open the link on Blogger as I don't have outlook.
