Design Wall Monday, Feb 22

Well, not much has changed around here. I have more blocks done, but it's still slow going!

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement you've given me. It really helps!

I haven't added any rows to the top yet, but I have lots of blocks made up...

several rows that are ready to add...

and lots of pieces ready to assemble...

I have pieces/parts everywhere, lol... I'll have more than enough for the top I'm making and the start of another top that I think I'll make for my BIL for Christmas...or maybe, I'll give it to him for his birthday in May?

Make sure you check out Judy's site to find out what everyone else is up to!

Stash Report...Well, More Like Confession Time

OK, ladies. They say that confession is good for the soul, so here goes.


I haven't been feeling well, so I haven't been quilting, but I want to be quilting, so I've been buying fabric!!!!! UGGGGG!

I KNOW that I have a tendency to do that...after all, it's how I got such a big stash to begin with...and I STILL did it again!


NO MORE eBAY!!!!!!!!

OK, I feel better now.

Wind Up for the Weekend, Feb 19

What's everyone planning on doing this weekend? Anyone going on a retreat? Anyone planning on being snowed in and quilting all weekend? We all want to know!

I'm planning on working on decluttering this weekend. It's actually getting done this time...after ALL the times that I have resolved to "get my house in order" this time, it seems as if it's finally happening.

The basement is finished, and now we're going through the upstairs and finding a place for everything...throwing out things we don't need/want/use...deep cleaning cabinets, drawers, etc. It's been going well, even though we've all had colds and haven't been 100%.

I am hoping to get some quilting in this weekend, though. I'm planning on getting my Bricks and Stepping Stones to the border stage. I already know what I'm going to do for borders, so it should go quickly once I get there.

Leave a link and let us know what you'll be doing this weekend!

Design Wall Monday, Feb 15

Well, I have been sewing a little...not very much, but a little.

One of my best friends has asked me to make a quilt for her hubby, so I'm working on that.

I have decided that I need to make some quilts for the men in my life in for my hubby, my brothers, my step-father, etc.  Most of the quilts that I have made in the past have been very "girlie."

So, here's that start of my Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt:

As you can see, I'm making it with blue "bricks" and brown and cream "stepping stones."


Many of these blue prints are from a whole PILE of bricks that my friend Lori sent me...thanks, Lori...and a lot of them are Civil War Reproduction prints that I have, so they do tend to be more masculine.

Make sure you check out Judy's blog to see what everyone else is up to this week!.

Wind Up for the Weekend, Feb 12

Well, what is everyone else going to do this weekend?

We're supposed to have quilt guild, but there's a storm moving in, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to go.

I'm getting my energy back and hoping to spend quite a bit of time quilting this weekend either way, lol.  It seems like I don't really get a lot of sewing done at quilt guild anyway, lol.

Link here and let us know what you'll be up to!

Getting My MoJo Back

OK, ladies.  I'm feeling like I'm getting my mojo back.

I finally went to the doctor and they diagnosed me with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  I really did know that I had it, but finally, they did all the tests and confirmed it.

SO...they put me on some meds and now at least I have some energy.

I'm also in the process of going through my stash to figure out how I'm going to put in into my new sewing area!  I'm excited, but also a little paralyzed because I don't want to "mess it up."  How silly is that???

So, I'll get some photos up soon.

I'm working on a Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt for the husband of a friend of mine.  I'm also getting ready to quilt my daughter's quilt for her new room.

So, I just wanted to tell you all that I'm back and thank all of you that have written me emails asking how I am.  I can't tell you how awesome it is to know that there are people who think of me even thought they've never even met me in real life!

Wind Up for the Weekend, Feb 5

What's everyone planing on getting accomplished this weekend???

I'm feeling much better since my doctor placed me on Prednisone...lots more energy.


I'm planning on finishing a few flimsies that I have started over the last few weeks in moments that I was able to sew...I'm hoping to have two, maybe three tops done by the end of the weekend.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Please link to your blog post (not just your blog) about what YOU'RE planning on getting accomplished this week end.

I'm Having Trouble With Blogger!

I'm not sure what's going on!  Test, Test, HELP.

Well, I figured it out, but I had to take off my "Snowfall Effect" widget.  Too bad, it was fun, he he he.

For all of you who wished me well concerning my health problems that I was complaining about a couple of days ago...Thank you!  It's so wonderful to have online friends who are concerned about you!

I did hear from my doctor (I had gone the the specialist on Tuesday) and I have officially be diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  It's kind of a bummer, but I knew in my heart that there was something wrong.

The doctor started me on Prednisone, so I'm feeling MUCH better.

Yesterday, a friend came to help me with some things that needed to be done with my baby goats, so that's off my mind.

I'm REALLY planning on quilting this weekend, so I'll be hoping to get some things accomplished.
