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.

Where does the time go?

Its been a very long time since I've posted!
First of all, my computer has been SO slow that it was no longer enjoyable to use it, so I sent it to get fixed. The 2-3 days that it was going to be in the shop turned into almost 7....
And I was very surprised at how many hours there were in a day when the computer isn't in front of me helping me to use many of them up!
While it was gone I got some cleaning done and spent Valentines Weekend at the farm where I awoke Saturday morning to find this:
I'm not sure if you can really tell what is in that pile of gifts, but My Guy got me a Burpee Seed-Starting kit (he's a hopeless romantic!) several packets of seeds, a Borders gift card, and a "Little Something" from VS....presumably to wear while I am out in the garden planting my seedlings.

I bought him a card, which I forgot at home in my nightstand drawer.

So anyway, since I've left most of my sewing & quilting out at the farm I only have this handwork to share:
I made some dishcloths. Nothing fancy....although the yellow one has a star knit into it and the large colored rose one is basketweave. I felt like trying something different.
I also finished another block for the Hawaiian quilt. Ya know, I'm really sick of leaves after this one:

The last is a shot of the Rooster Quilt that just cam back from Karen the Quilter. I made this a couple of years ago from a pattern in one of Nancy's books. I don't know why I didn't have it finished before now, but I think the thought of hanging it at the farm spurred me on to get it done.

That's all I have for now, Chicks. Talk to ya later!

Sounds like you were still able to stay busy. Humm, I wonder if it is a full moon

Well, it definitely pays to be "off" the computer. We missed you, but you sure do have a lot to show for it. I am hoping you show a whole picture of that rooster quilt. That is adorable and I haven't seen it before. Can't wait to see more!

I sure don't remember the rooster quilt. Liking it though. Although I would like to see all of it. Chuckled about the Valentine gifts. It's sooo like him.

I love to see what everyone is working on and this was a wonderful surprise to see so many things. I can't wait to see those dishcloths up close. I'm so envious that yours look so cute compared to the dumpy ones I'm working on. The Hawaiian block is another winner. Keep up the good work.
