Two Steps Forward….

By |October 2nd, 2012|work in progress|14 Comments

…one step back!

I finally decided how to quilt my Button Box quilt, and messed it up!

I spent last night picking stitches until my finger tips hurt, hopefully tomorrow I can resume my efforts.

Have you ever picked out quilting?

Hope that’s not what you are doing today!

Floss Fun

By |September 24th, 2012|work in progress|11 Comments

I’ve been collecting Cosmo floss for my Dessert of the Month patterns in a couple baggies.  But found myself frustrated with the lack of organization, so I treated myself to a JoAnn trip!

I used some TV time to wind the floss on the bobbins and put them in number order.

That feels better!

With football on all day yesterday […]

Are a must right now!

I often drop the girls & Owen off at school on bikes, as long as we are organized enough to get out the door on time!  And Ella will ride her bike, an hour earlier most days as well.

If we have a rough morning, or the immanent threat of rain, I will have […]

A complete quilt top! I feel like this has been forever in the making, but it’s done :)

I had hoped to baste and begin quilting over the weekend, but it didn’t happen.  That’s okay with me – we had a great family weekend!  So on my list this week will be sewing up the backing […]

Catching Up

With the kids all in school for 2.5 hours (Owen is done by 11:15 am) I’ve been working into my own routine.  Mainly including a bike ride after taking them on their bikes to school. It’s so nice to plug in my headphones and push myself to keep going up, I have a nine mile […]

So, it’s Wednesday already – how are you doing on your goals?

I love reading through all your plans!  Some of you make me roll my eyes when I read all that you “hope” to accomplish – do you sleep!?  I’m sure you say the same thing about me at times!

I’ve made a bit of progress […]

…is a week of finishes for me!

I’ve got a new pattern in the works, and hope to share it with you soon!

I also have to meet an editing deadline, so my posts will be a little sparse.

Are you planning any finishes for this week?

I already made my list!

My days this week have been scattered!  With soccer filling up a few nights, and beautiful weather pulling us outdoors – I’ve had a hard time getting to the computer to tell you about it all!

Yesterday I gave Owen his summer haircut – he wasn’t excited about it, but it HAD to be done!  And […]
