2010 Sounds so weird and really makes me feel OLD. lol
It's been less then exciting around here since the last time I posted, but, things are starting to look up. Believe me, they couldn't go any further down.
Something about the holidays this past year, along with all the snow, put me in a funk. You know the old saying, when you mix Holiday's with Extended Family's, you could come up with a dump cake. lol
Oh well, thank goodness this too shall pass. It's a new Year, new Decade and I am determined to make this the best year ever. No more WORRYING over things I can NOT change, and things I don't have any desire to change. So, look out world, here I come.
I am going to take Mr. Favor's (The trail boss on Rawhide, I know I am aging myself, but, I loved that show) attitude and go with it, which was: I don't take crap from NOBODY!
Ok, with all that off my chest, I will get on with what's happening in my world.
I have a LOT of things going on, sewing, machine quilting, hand quilting, cooking and remodeling. I love being busy!!!!!
This is the Spiked with color laid out on the front room floor, basted, pinned and ready for HAND QUILTING. YES, I SAID HAND QUILTING. I know I posted earlier that I thought I have lost my mind, well, I lost it again. lol
I do have to say, I am looking forward to getting this quilt finished, it may take a while, but, I love to hand quilt, so, it will go pretty quick. At least I hope so. I will be posting updates on it's progress.
Now, to what I am up to today, Jan 9th, 2010
I have two quilts to get finished, they were supposed to be Christmas gifts, better late than never.
I have my Niece Lesley's quilt on my Flynn frame and just about finished quilting it. I have a couple more passes and then on to the next one.
Thought I would take a pic of how you quilt with two dogs. First you set up the space heater, wait till they find it and you have a built in baby sitter. Don't know how they can lay so close to it, but, it works. No more dogs under foot.
This is a close up of Lesley's quilt on the frame. Did I mention..........I LOVE THIS FRAME?
