Heart broken and in withdrawals! 10/4/2010

I can't stand it! I fell and have a fracture in my right hand! Of course I'm right handed! Never mind work, I'm an Administrative Assistant or any of that other important stuff! It's my quilting hand!!! I do a lot of my work, well most actually, by hand. I don't even have a ufo that I can whip up on the machine to take the edge off. Several projects in the works but dag nabbit all to heck, I can't work on them. It's so depressing :(. I suppose it could be worse. There will be no need for…

Checking in from Chester, VA 8/31/2010

Hi folks, I hope you are all doing well! I have been super busy this summer, seems to be pretty much the norm around here anymore! I have been working on my sister in law's quilt and am now two thirds of the way done. Yahoo! I'm sure you have worked on several that you will be glad to see the end of.

Quick Post for May 2010

Hi all! This year has been busy,busy busy! I can't believe that we are already at the end of May. I finished a Breast Cancer Wall hanging for my sister-in-law Becky, and just yesterday finished my sister Jackie's "Country Angel" Quilt. I posted those pictures today. I managed to get my next project (Becky's Quilt) sandwiched, will hopefully pin it tonight and start quilting it tomorrow. My brother's "Fishing" top is ready too so I have another one ready to go after that. After those are…

February 15, 2010

Hi quilting buddies, I hope you are all well. It has been a long time since I posted. My husband got sick just after Thanksgiving and it just kept getting worse and worse. The fist diagnosis was pneumonia and after almost a month of antibiotics and shots with no improvement, he was sent to a lung specialist. A week in the hospital and a couple thousand tests give or take a few hundred, they found out he has "Blastomycosis". A fungus disease in his lungs. He will be on treatment for a year.… Continue

Hi folks, hope you are all doing well and have been busy quilting away! I finished my daughter-in-law's Frog quilt last night. I just uploaded the pic's! Now I am down to two themed quilts, my sister Jackie's Angel quilt and my brother Allen's Fishing quilt. THEN... I think I will make one for just for me! It has been a busy summer, at least I think we had summer, it went by so fast it was hard to tell. Anyway, I love this time of the year! Cool enough to quilt a LOT more!! Can I get an Amen!!… Continue

"Finally Friday!"

My word, I thought the week would never end! I swear it seemed like two weeks long and that only took me up to Tuesday! I just hope that now that it is finally Friday, the weekend doesn't speed by! I am looking forward to a weekend of quilting, organizing my sewing room, quilting, peicing...oh did I say quilting! I can't think of a better way to relax that doing any of the afore mentioned things. I worked on my daughter-in-law's quilt blocks ("Frogs") this week and I hope to be able to piece… Continue

July 27th - Finally Reached the Finish Line!!

Whew! What a race! I finally reached the finish line though! I wanted to be finished with his quilt before Anthony goes back to Liberty University for school in the fall. I have been working on this one since early this year and was beginning to wonder ( I think he was too) if I would ever finish it. I did work on a couple of other things too so I guess we can call those pit stops! :) It has been a busy Spring/Summer for sure. The kids, my granddaughters and I made a trip to North Carolina to… Continue
