I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Just take things easily, Sherri. Sew a few at a time and spread it out so you don't get tempted to do too much.

Comment by Sherri Eley yesterday

Oh no Sherry -- take care and heal quickly.  What an awful start to 2021.

Comment by Sheila Craft on January 9, 2021 at 8:01am

Oh, No! Sherri, you take care of yourself! That's awful news and it doesn't seem like 2021 is starting off well at all - for you and many others! On the plus side, you've now got time to watch some quilting tutorials! Nap time is always good, in my opinion.

For a touch of humor - at my expense - someone posted the phone number of the hospital to let us know we could sign up to get our names on the list for the vaccine. I saw it late last night so, I called this morning and got the "mailbox is full" message. Oy!

no  i havent Sheila  2021 started out horribly for me   thrs night when i got off work at midnigt  i fell in the parking lot  landed on my shoulder and my face   i live 5 miles from work so somehow managed to get myself into my car and drive home    early next day went to ORTHOPEDIC INSTITUE  because i thought i dislocated my shoulder   but no  i broke it in 2 places   and when i hit my face on the concrete my teeth went through my upper lip  that however is minor compared to the pain in the shoulder.  so my sewing days are on hold  have to wear the  brace 6 weeks  thank god for pain pills  cant imagine getting addicted to these all i do is sleep when i take one   BUT  I am  thankful for my DD JEN and spouse PAUL THEY are taking good care of me.  HE has been bugging me to quit this job  but i plan to work until summer   typing with one hand is too slow  have to figure out the verbal thingy  where i talk and computer types what I say   time for a nap

Sherri, you're sew industrious! Have you seen the video Jordan Fabrics did on borders?

Comment by Sherri Eley on January 6, 2021 at 4:03am

Finished all  49 blocks of my scrappy.  Sewed them into rows yesterday... Today hope to sew the rows together. Then come up with a border.  I am not really a fan of plain borders that are just a strip of fabric  so trying to come up with something that uses some pieced blocks integrated with some of those strips.  Normally I like a quilt without a border but this one I want to add some inches to this quilt.

I think we all have the "Squirrel!" issue, Sherri so don't despair. I'm sitting here with time on my hands and can't seem to motivate myself enough to work on anything. I just got some lovely fabric to do the Lori Holt Granny's Garden quilt, some crazy quilt paper that Lori Holt did is staring me in the face, some gorgeous FQ's arrived in the mail yesterday, and I'm just got a plethora of UFO's I've been ignoring. I haven't even gotten to play with my new Grace Q-zone set up b/c I'm waiting for my husband to correct the channel lock set up on it. Grrr...

Tomorrow is a new day and a new year - Let's plan on making it better!

Happy New Year!

I did one mystery and glad I did but really have no inkling to do another.   I liked doing it and loved the final project En Provence,  which was several years ago.

I just have trouble sticking with one project at a time. That is how I get so many UFOs.  for instance yesterday I got a pck of greeting carcs in the mail  You know the ones from an organization that wants you to send them money.  The cards are really beautiful and several have motif's on them I would like to translate into applique for a small qult.  Things like this just distract me from my plans,  which are always a bit shaky anyway. And then my spouse bugs me to take that daily walk. And I am glad he does,  I need to do that.  Today it will be cold, there is a light dusting of  snow here in NW OH. But that won't stop us from at least a short walk in the park.  Unless there is ice on the paths we will walk.  A broken hip from a fall in the park not something I want to experience.  Good buy and good riddance to 2021,  irt's been a tough year personally with family health as well as the health of the Republic.  Im glad to shut the door on 2020.  Happy New year Ladies.  I guess the next time we meet it will be  a New Beginning.  I'm  sure we will be asleep before the ball drops in Times Square.  we usually are.

I've always been told that I'm too "detailed" (for lack of a better word) but, I'm no where near that detailed, Sherri! I think I got to a point where I just said, F-it. I'm much happier now. LOL!

I do like that Bonnie Hunter pattern, too. I wish I had time to participate in her mysteries...

Hope all had a good Christmas. I'm off until the 4th of January but, can't seem to motivate myself.
