  1. A Slow Day

    by , 11-18-2011 at 06:54 AM
    I've been up since 5 a.m. and have done nothing worthwhile. I want to get at my sewing but lack motivation. I've walked into the sewing room a dozen times but walked back out again without sitting at the sewing machine. I don't want to do housework..perish the thought!!!...or anything else. Just been walking around or sitting at the computer.

  2. Houston spills over

    by , 11-18-2011 at 05:38 AM
    I had a fabulous trip to International quilt festival at the beginning of the month. I spent 3 1/2 days in the quilting bubble and it felt great. Wednesday night was preview and I saw about 1/3 of the displayed quilts. I knew art quilting was big, but I had no idea that it would outweight the tradtional pieces. They are creative, yes, but since I don't like to put quilts on my walls, they don't interest me.

    Thursday was spent looking at more juried quilts and in class with Cindy ...

    Wow, I love these four day work weeks. I didn't do any sewing or knitting last night. I was too tired. I rested up and I will go back into my sewing room tonight to get some stuff ready to workon this weekend. I want to cut out my bow tuck bag pieces, and I want to start cutting out potholders for Christmas gifts. I also want to retry the hexagon table topper again. I think I know why it didn't work the first time, so I'm going to try it again and pay better attention to the instructions instead ...

  6. Today was much better! (Thursday, November 17, 2011)

    by , 11-17-2011 at 06:03 PM (My Happy Place)
    Discussed the strong abnormal beating with my doctor's nurse. She said it is probably normal but if it occurs again for that length of time, I need to call them and they will put me on some temporary medication. I really don't need to add more expenses so today I took it much easier - mostly laid around and slept off and on. Also did not drink any caffeine and that may have been the culprit because I have had minimal fluttering today.

    I hope tomorrow to go into my sewing room and ...

    Alikat's quilt label tutorial

    Wash the fabric without softener, using only plain unscented no bleach detergent Arm & Hammer. You ...
