8 months??

Wow, I have not blogged for 8 months!!!  I have not been sewing for part of that, but that is no excuse.  So here we go.  Tractor pulling season is over and I am stitching away furiously.  I have really tried to keep to the list.  I make a list, usually at the very beginning of the year, of the sewing projects I am working away at.  It helps me keep focus.  I have a problem of starting projects but not finishing them. 

 So I have decided to start 3 projects!!!  Must be that I am trying to get them all started before the new list comes!!  I have been sick with the flu twice in 2 weeks, so I have only been hand sewing.

So have you missed me??  Does anyone really read this?  LOL 

I finished my Halloween project.  I really did not care if it was done on time, but when I flipped the calendar to December I decided it was time.  My friend Shell at Red Quilts posted this in WQG group and I thought it was too cute.  I also made it with my friend Joyce who is just learning all about wool!!  She finished hers in days. 

I bought one of Connecting Threads kits.  Enough fabric to make 4.  I did get this done before the season was over!!   It had a ton of hand work also but was fun.  I call it the button eater!!

Completing 2 projects give me permission to start another, RIGHT?????

I started a project that I did blog about before renamed by me as "A whole lot of crazy"  Truponto'd applique blocks that are quilted as a block. 

I also started a wool project.  It is a 7 month block of the month.  I reminded hat Janet M told me about french knots today.  Going to learn the stem stitch tomm.  Pictures later
Then tonight I decided to do the new  Leah Day Skill builder block of the month.  Going to go look for fabric now :P
Until the next stitch!!


  1. Love the snowmen and the quilted block with the cute!
