Today, a day to regroup

Life can get hectic that's for sure.  I've been busy working on customer quilts, and this is a peek of the latest I've done.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to try something I'd seen on my Gammill Group on Yahoo, it's just two pieces of fleece, and I did wonky feathers by Pajama Quilter Dawn Ramirez

Today I have to get started on another quilt for a customer but I hope to have time to start on a rail fence quilt that I've been wanting to get to just for me.  If I can just get the fabric ironed I'll be a happy camper.

Too many errands, too many tasks, not enough time in the day?

It sure seems that way lately.  I'm debating whether to go to water aerobics this morning.  Of course I know I need to go, I know it would do me good, but I'm so tired I'd really like to just crawl back into bed.  Today is already going to be busy enough, and tomorrow will start out that way as well.   ugh!  but you know once I'm in the water I'm always thankful that I made the effort...okay, all right, I'd better get ready...a quick banana and I'll be on my way to the Y.

I need to plan some "me" time this weekend.  What do you like to do for "me" time?

Time to Post

I have been extremly busy lately, and I find myself writing less and less on my blog.  I have to make a better effort to do that with interesting stuff and more pictures.  I have the next couple of days off from work, so I hope to catch up on all that is going by the wayside.

On another note, my team the Green Bay Packers, are going to the super bowl!!!   Yeah!

Off to water aerobics

I'm headed out to water aerobics and then I work today until 2pm.  Also work tomorrow until 2pm.  I finished a fleece quilt which I did wonky feathers on, inspired by The Pajama Quilter.  Hope to get to a customer quilt later today. 

Looking at my stash recently I think I am finally ready to start getting rid of stuff.  Love the Sew Its For Sale yahoo group, and Fling It All from Stashbuster. 

This coming Sunday is a big football game, at least to me anyway.  The Packers vs The Bears!  I'm a Packer Fan being from Wisconsin, and the Packers and Bears have always been big rivals.  I can't wait.

Oh how sweet

This is one of my customer's quilts that I finished.  The pantograph pattern is called Curly Hearts.  Just a sweet quilt all pink and pretty and now filled with pretty hearts.

Finally a quilty picture

I've been working on getting some quilts ready to send out for the Returning Warriors Workshop in the Pensacola area.  So here is one of the string quilts which was sent to me from Heartstrings Quilt Project.

In all I will be sending a total of 3 quilts to them, 2 of which came from Heartstrings. 

It's been cold here in the Deep South and a perfect weekend for sewing the binding on the last 2 of these quilts while watching the football playoffs.  Perhaps a cup of hot chocolate is in order.

Looking forward to the weekend

A busy day today, work from 9am to 2pm and then off to the vet with our chocolate lab, Jake since he is due for his yearly exam and shots. 

Then it's the weekend!  Hooray!  I can finish the Heartstrings quilts and send them on to the Returning Warriors workshop contact person. 

I don't know about your, but I love to sit and sew the bindings on a quilt.  Especially when it's cold outside!  Can't wait.

How time flies

I kept thinking I need to post, but life has been hectic.  It's also very cold here in the Deep South.  Working out of the home and from home plus the cold weather, has me a bit run down, and now I have a good cold.  Trying to get through one day at a time.

I am currently working on two string quilts from Heartstrings Quilt Project.  They came from one of our members in Minnesota and I've been quilting them to go to the Returning Warriors Workshop for the Pensacola area.

Information, please

As you know I started working this week besides my quilting business, and I don't have a real schedule yet.  I hope to get that taken care of today when I go in to work.  It makes it hard to plan all of the other things I have going on.  Isn't it amazing how one bit of information can affect one's life?  And how everything links together?  And isn't it difficult when there are unknowns?  And how that affects everything we do? I like to have facts and information in front of me before I can function.

Not much time for posting

My daughter arrived this morning, a long drive from Northern Missouri.  I am starting my first day of work at Hancock Fabrics and I'll admit I'm a bit nervous, you know, like your first day of school...

I'm working on a customer quilt as well, and have a commission quilt going, needless to say it's going to be a busy week.

I did get the mystery quilt done from NYE, added two borders, but haven't had a chance to get a picture.
