Long Time - No Post!

Hi everyone!

It feels like forever...I caught up on many of your blogs this past week or to catch up on mine.

I have been working on the focus piece for Kindred Spirits Sampler Guild...Keep Me Sampler by Moira Blackburn.  It is supposed to be finished by June.  I have a bit more to go!

I am part of the Sampler World Snooty Parrots SAL on Facebook.  I am terribly behind the suggested schedule...but it has been a fun stitch so far.  I hope to hit this one hard after the focus sampler is done.
 Excuse the wrinkles in both!

What else...well, I have been trying to quilt now and again, and want to spend some time with my sewing machine this afternoon.  I got a new sewing machine earlier this year and am loving the time I am spending with it, albeit minuscule.  I am working my way up there...

It has been hectic at work.  I am still learning and still slow. 

It has also been hectic with family stuff.  Nothing I can speak of at this time, but needless to say, lots of prayers and thoughts need to be sent our way!

I took a bit of much needed "me" time yesterday.  My husband works afternoons and I usually have my evenings free...since he was home last week, my routine was a bit disrupted - in addition to much time on the phone with  my sister and researching on the computer things for her... 

so I did this:
(picture from the web...not me!)

And this:
(Yes those are my toes, blurry as they are)...

Bills and desk work done, dinner is planned.  Laundry is still calling my name, as well as a shower now that it's noon!  And then on to my sewing room.  I have to prepare for the Kindred Spirits auction next week, put some binding on a finished quilt to prepare for hand sewing it to the back and I really want to cut out a JoMorton quilt.  My ambition also wants to work on another quilt, but the realistic part of me - if I get the first three things done, I will be successful today!

Have a good week all!

  1. Lots of good thoughts and prayers for sure for you and yours. Love your stitching! Beautiful! Looking forward to seeing what quilting you are doing too. Good for you for treating yourself. Sounds like you need it right about now. Hang in there!

  2. I shall keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    Both your samplers are looking gorgeous, glad you are getting some time for yourself


Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog and comment! I read each and every one and appreciate them all. They make me smile!
