About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Cold Monday Afternoon

Not alot to show, but I can show you this:
That's me in my snazzy new winter overalls, my Christmas gift from my always thoughtful spouse. I love them They are super comfy, they accentuate all my curves, that rusty orange color is Uber-Flattering, and with the right accessories you can wear them anywhere.

Since I cant seem to wrap my mind around sewing lately, I have some blogs you should check out and you can see the cool things that are being created "out there"!
First of all, check out the Love Quilt at Lazy Girl Quilting. I love it!

Then go check out the tiny stars at Brown Dirt Cottage. She's also working on some concentric circle HAND quilting on her chunky Churn dash.

Go see A Simple Girl...she's getting hooked on 9 patches...and we all love those things, don't we?

And lastly, if you want some free stitchery patterns, go see The Noble Wife.

Have fun, and don't stay on the computer too long. You've got some sewin' to do!

Creativity and Chaos

As I sit amidst this mess, I wonder if everyone else makes a mess like this while working on a project? I mean, I managed to do create this chaos in less than an hour.

The upside of this was I managed to finish another block of my applique. The pattern is How Does Your Garden Grow by Blackbird Designs, and it is a kit that I bought from Cottage Quilts some time ago........

Happy New Year!

I've been lax lately. My usual Post-Holiday-Funk.
I need to go backwards to be able to move forward, so we'll start with this one.
This is my boy on his 25th Birthday. We had plans to go to the Beefcarver......but when we got there...NO BEEF. They had actually run out! Ever heard of anything so crazy?
We weren't going to eat the meatloaf or the nasty scrod floating in wet-looking butter sauce, so we quickly came up with a Plan B and went up the road to Mr.B's....the food was ok,(but it wasn't roast beef and those awesome mash potatos we were looking forward to) and we made the best of the situation.

There is a pic of D heading back to NYC. We had her here for 9 days and they flew by. She was back in time for the ball drop........

And then yesterday I decided to make cinnamon rolls for New Years Day....and I couldn't resist taking photos, so here they are:

Blogger is misbehaving right now, so I'll have to edit this post later. In the meantime, I hope that your New Year is a Sweet One......
