Slow Progress

I don't know what's happened to my life. I went from my usual homebody-life of work, home, make dinner, read or quilt to scheduling something every night of the week. Well at least that's what happened last week: dinner with friends, puppy sitting, yoga class, bible study, dinner with family. Phew! I'm worn out! I scheduled something every night for a week and a half, but tonight, I'm back to my quiet schedule. Go home, make dinner, and quilt.

There's just one catch, I just remembered that I'm all out of thread.

Okay, okay, so tonight I'll start my seeds for my vegetable garden and tomorrow I'll get back to my quilt after making a little trip to the store.

I did have a couple of hours this weekend to finish piecing all of the strips. And thanks to Care over at Obsessively Stitching who taught me the joys of "finger pinning", sewing strips together should be a cinch. A very good skill to know when you have lots of corners to match up. I love how it's coming together.

My friend also really loves trees and uses them in her decorating, so I'm planning on doing a little something special with this panel.

Hopefully I'll be able to make some progress later this week.


  1. I love how your blog posts incorporate photos--your photography really is so simple and beautiful and pleasing to look at. I also appreciate how the colors of your quilts match the blog color motif. Presentation is everything and you have it down.

  2. i'm sssoooooooooooooooooooooo excited...

  3. Gosh, I'm in love! Rock-on Ms. Thang! I'm so proud of you working so hard! I really need to get back into the swing of things. :-D
