Oh my,

the days seem to be getting away from me. I have been busy, busy, busy. Lots of sewing, machine quilting, and hand quilting going on--but no pictures. The lighting is awful in my house and it is dark when I leave in the morning and almost dark when I get home in the evening. Who says teachers get to leave at 3 p.m.?

The star quilt I made from men's shirts is complete--binding and all. I love the look. I am going to wash it and then probably hang it in the den.

This Merry Christmas quilt is also completed now--binding and all.

I have been hand quilting almost every evening also. It is so slow going, but I am now down to about 8 blocks and the border. Maybe I'll have it finished by Christmas.

I went to a wonderful retreat at the Subiaco Abbey and Academy last weekend.  I grew up about half a mile down the road. My stress goes down just driving into the parking lot.

I am tutoring two nights a week for an hour or so after school. I am teaching the middle school CCD class for church every Wednesday night. I thought we were supposed to slow down as we get older. Not sure how I got this busy.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. sounds like you have been very busy! Great looking quilts, I hope to have some finishes in the next several weeks too.
    Enjoy the weekend - supposed to be near 80.

  2. Vivian,

    You certainly have been busy! That Merry Christmas quilt stole my heart!

    Thanks for stopping by and comment on my Scout quilt pattern.

    Have a great weekend.
