Another top!

I just finished another top for a nephew. It will be a quilted throw like the last five I have made this summer.
 Have one more to make and am using a panel for it.

Received the Scrapitude cutting instructions recently and am going to do a little of that while I listen to the ball game.

August 2015

I gaveupbloghong on my computer as it !ept blowing away my work. Just discovered I can blog on my new tablet! I heard a big DUH from all of you in the blogosphere! Be nice.

Anyway, the big guy and I visited family on Washington State in July and there were seven kids who didn't have quilts. I got three made while we were there for five days and have finished two more since we got home. Working on one now and just bought a panel for the seventh one ---- whew. Pictures below.
 Have to transfer more pics from phone to tablet. But this is a little taste of what I have been doing.

Three - count them 3 finished!

After three days of procrastination induced MY QUILTS NEED TO BE DONE BY FRIDAY insomnia, my quilts are finished! Three of them. Two have only been in the works for the past year as they are block of the month ones but the third has been in my quilting line for over twelve (!!!) years. Delivering them to the Manteca (California) Quilters Guild show tomorrow morning.

Thursday, again already

So, it is the second Thursday of the year and I am blogging, as promised.

Didn't make it to Saturday sampler last Saturday. Yesterday, when I picked up my block for the month I changed my class time from 11:45 to 9:30. A group from the mini group I just joined all go at 9:30 so maybe that is the push I need.

Speaking of the mini group, yesterday was the second time I've gone to the group meeting - the last two Christmas parties don't count as we didn't sew. I didn't have a machine to take as when I got my little brother back from friend Patty I forgot the foot pedal! So Tuesday night I assembled a bunch of blocks that I needed to cut and a quilt I am sewing the back on and took that.

Today was the first day in about two weeks that I have been home - big sigh. I was going to sew but by the time I had fixed breakfast and cleaned up, made a birthday card and took it to the post office the big guy got home and wanted to take me to lunch.  We went for GF pizza and salad at Mtn. Mike's down the street. Then a trip to Jo-Ann for yarn to make a scarf for a friend.
Didn't buy enough of the hairy stuff so will go back tomorrow for another skein.

By the time we got back I could barely keep my eyes open and had to take three loads of laundry off the line and hang it  in the house as it was sunny but too cold to dry outside. Which reminds me, I have to check the bathroom - I put a heater in there to dry the first load. It is probably a sauna by now.

Thanks for checking in

Happy New Year 2015!

Now is the time for my yearly resolutions. Here is one that only matters here - I resolve to blog once a week - on Thursdays.
And one that matters to me personally - draw and paint more.
I am having a very nice Christmas. Did you know it is still Christmas? Today is day seven of the 12 days of Christmas.
In honor of the fifth day (five golden rings -remember the Miss Piggy rendition) and the visit of my all grown up grandson I threw a party. My Central Valley friends had never met him so I invited them over for coffee and gingerbread. It was a lot of fun and my house fairy cleaned like a mad woman so the house is presentable for a couple of days.
I sewed for a half an hour yesterday. Got one more basket almost finished.
So, Happy New Year. Blog at  you next week!
