Can It Be March 1???

Greetings Everyone -

I can hardly believe that March is here - where did February go? Time marches on - more quickly that my projects do :) Seems like I have good intentions of working on something but then "something" gets in the way - oh well, what would quilting and stitching be without UFO's?

I'm slowly working on the Wool Crazy Sew Along quilt - it will be a continuous work in progress. Now I need to start cutting out my first on the list 2010 quilt. My college roommate and I live about 4 hours apart and decided to do this as a BOM together. I can't wait to see how each of ours turns out as I'm always changing things (that can be good and bad!) so for now will post the quilt picture and as time progresses will post the results. This pattern is from Kansas Troubles and we are both using a line of Kansas Troubles fabric.

Happy Stitching!

The Wool Bug Has Bitten Me!

Hi Everyone -

I've been out of town for two weeks - my mother-in-law had surgery on both feet - she is such a wonderful "patient" and I enjoyed my time with both my MIL and FIL. I had some "down" time so was able to finish the top of my wool wall hanging. Yes, I know it is an autumn theme - I never got it finished for this past year so I'm telling myself "I'm way ahead of the game - I've got my fall wall hanging done and it is only February" - have you ever done that? I have really enjoyed the handwork and find it relaxing. In this day and age when everyone and everything is on over drive, I'm thankful to have a craft that requires time and is relaxing. So here it is:

If any of you have clicked on the button for Wool Crazy Sew Along to the left, you will have seen all the lovely work that everyone has been doing that has been bitten by the wool bug. I'm a bit behind as I haven't had much time to collect my wool, but I thought I'd at least show you my foundation. If you had any interest in wool at all, this is a great group - sponsered by Pumpkin Patch Primitives

So visit the Wool Crazy Sew Along - see what we are all up to and then go to Pumpkin Patch Primitives and see all that Brenda has to offer!

Happy Sewing Friends!

Raggedy Finished - Finally!

Hi Everyone -

You all probably thought I'd never get this throw done - well it is done and on its way to Bowling Green, Ohio! I hope my niece Brooke will enjoy snuggling with it and now I'm on to the first of many 2010 projects!
