Design Wall Monday, March 12, 2012

Same Old, Same Old!
Saint Stars 2 center quilting
Soccer Beauty still lurking waiting to be quilted
These two have been on my design wall for ages. SBQ will probably stay until May, since I must finish quilting SS2 ASAP. SS2's center is the hardest, but the sides should go much faster. Problem is-I am tired of this quilt! Same thing happen with SS1.
Halloween Graduation Quilt - time for more batting
    I started HGQ since it is needed by May. HGQ will be a two step quilt also. First I will piece the top using the batting as stabilizer. Then I will put the backing on and quilt it. That's the plan anyway! 
   This week will be a slow week b/c I am still feeling a bit under the weather. Exercise will be back on the schedule starting Tuesday and we will see how that affects the problem areas. I plan on sewing on SS2, HGQ and doing my Block Swap block. As for Judy L.'s March UFO #8, well, it will live as a UFO until SS2, HGQ, & SBQ are done as will most of my UFO's. I really need to finish these three quilts.
  On the 23rd, I have a Bargello class with Dorinda Evans which should be interesting since I have never done one before. The class jelly roll has too many mediums so I am going to cut some darks from my stash to compliment it. Thinking this will be another probable UFO for next year!

  On the 27/28th, DH and I will be traveling to Pine Bluff, Arkansas for the Southern Bowling Association tournament.  While he bowls, I turn on the generator and have a mini-sewing retreat. The dogs are happy as long as we walk every 2 hours or so to investigate the area with food/water available. They guard me while we people-watch & sew.
  "Why do you blog?" My blog is my journal and I go back to read how my life has changed although it feels the same. It definitely isn't for the comments b/c the lack thereof would suggest that my life is boring which  it is.  I love comments and have made some great  friends-one who is like a long lost sister . "Why do you read blogs?" I read other blogs b/c I am a people watcher living in a small community w/o a place to watch people unless you go to the local casino. LOL
  Someone ordered rain but forgot that others were also ordering so it has been pouring cats & dogs since yesterday. I don't mind the rain if I have washed clothes but all the loads were not finished Saturday. 
  Please turn off that faucet and  decide on a temperature setting and keep it there. This cold/warm hot/cool is not working!
Lator Gators! I am off to work on SS2 and HGQ! Keep  making Lemonade from Life's Lemons!


  1. I hope you feel better soon! Maybe you need to put the quilts away for a few days while you work on another project. It's easy to get tired of doing the same thing.
    Have fun in Arkansas!

  2. What pretty works in progress! I know how it is to tire of working on them after awhile, but they will sure be gorgeous when they're done! Best of luck, and I hope you're feeling better soon! :)
