    Anyone up and sewing this morning??

    I went to bed early last night so wide awake. I have a baby shower to go to this afternoon so I will try and finish my quilt today...not for the shower but for my house...its still the drunkard's path I am working on. I do not want to give it up...so I will use it for the playpen for once the baby visits...and maybe my lap if its big enough. I thought it was bigger than it is....oh well...I think if will be fine. Now off I go to FMG it. Happy sewing to you all...remember to post what you are up to. It does help modivate us all.. ; )

    I'm up and sewing! I have to hem a party dress that I have been making, then I can get started on a small quilting project. It's a secret santa gift for a crafty friend.

    I'm up, but not sewing. I'm just checking the board before I have to go to work. I'll work on the Maxine quilt for my sister-in-law when I get home at 3.

    I can't turn the machine on yet because it would wake everyone. Once I can, I will be working in crayon holder roll ups. I am making 9 for the kids in my sons kindergarten class and I am making more for a fair next November. The church fair didn't go as well as usual because of the hurricane and it has been getting smaller each year. I would like to breathe some new life into it and am already starting to plan.

    I answered an email to cousin; drinking my second cup of coffee, must cook some b-fast and get ready for church. Then perhaps a sewing hour or two to bind a wall hanging for a Christmas gift. And knitting scarves in my free moments, when I'm not on this stinkin computer. Will watch the Browns get beat this afternoon, too, cause that's what they do.

    Not going to be sewing today as I'm STILL trying to sort out months worth of quilt magazines, catalogs and a whole bunch of free download patterns that I want to get into sleaves and filled.

    I'll be working on some hand quilting off/on today. Just finished a baby quilt. 8.5 days from fabric purchase to binding and it was hand quilted as well! Gifted on Thrs. Fingers need a bit of a break. Probably do some more clean up in the office and sewing room today as well.

    Went to bed with a migrain last night and slight headache this morning. I am having my tea and checking up on QB. If I feel up to it I will make a credit card folder/wallet for my DDIL. She loved the last one I did for her and hinted it was getting pretty worn. She likes to keep it in her pocket when she runs errands.

    I'm up right now but not sewing. I posted on both of my blogs and I'll probably go back to bed in a bit. I got up waaaaaay too early and if I don't go back to bed I'll have a roaring headache before long. I'll probably start quilting my Christmas ornament wall hanging this afternoon.

    I'm awake, but things are so piled up in here, I may have to do more straightening than sewing for awhile.

    I cleaned house yesterday... spotless! Then I brought all my Christmas stuff in and put up my tree and decorated. Now I get to clean up the mess, and carry out all the containers. Then I will work on the lap quilt Im making for a Nursing Home.

    my quilt frame is set up next to the computer, so i can swirl from one to the other. I am planning to head to the down under and continue working on the blocks for my next quilt. I didn't get as many made over these last 5 days as I had envisioned. Will see what i can do today. Hopefully it won't be too cold down there!
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)

    I am up, but not sewing (yet)! I have to go (what we call) school shopping. That's whatever the children need for school lunches this week. Also have to go to BJ's Wholesale, for more regular household items. If I make time, I will work on a rag quilt for dd's boyfriend. It's made with LQS flannels like the cream colored background with trees with no leaves on them and all the greens and blues that are in the coordinating flannels. He's a tall boy, ~6'3", so I'll make it longer than usual.
    Go forth and sew!

    Well I just finished FMG'ing and the binding...I tried some new expensive thread today...urgh...I spent alot of time pulling it out. Don't know what it is my my sewing machine gets made when I do not use Gutterman. I used the left over alpaca batting....using the handwashing dial on my washing machine. I hope it stays warm enough to hang it outside...it smells when wet.

    I'm gluing pretty beads onto pins for some pincushions I made. Can't sew today because I am taking a trip to Seattle and leaving this afternoon. I have two quilts started and looking forward to coming home to get to work on them. I saw a new product in my LQS and just had the idea of what I am going to do with it. One of the quilts I am making is going to be a quilt for mom. Can't wait to show you all pictures.

    I was awake before 6 a.m., but can't sew yet, as it would wake someone. Am planning to do some sewing this afternoon when I get home from church.

    Getting ready to sew, I have 6 blocks to make for the class I am taking at the LQS. Great class, learning so much. I can't really do much until my overnight guest goes home, she wants to help Nannie sew. A 3 year old is really not a lot of help, but tons of fun!
