    I am gearing up for a long afternoon in the sewing room, trying to work on a quilt for my niece that's been one discouraging mistake after another. But this project is important to me, so I WILL make progress today! I have four of the blocks ripped that need re-pieced, so that's my goal for this afternoon. I will tackle the rest of the blocks another time, for my sanity's sake. :)

    What are you sewing today?

    I wish I was sewing! I'm waiting for out of town family to arrive for visitation at the funeral home tonight for my mother-in-law. She passed away on Thursday. So our normal routine is "out of whack" for the next few days.

    I sew in the dining room. We are having a dinner party next week, so I'm trying to find the dining room table. I know it's in there, somewhere!

    I am going to work on my DSIL's Christmas Quilt. Also, I am going to put the label on the Winnie-the-Pooh Quilt that I am making for my friends son for Christmas. They have no idea that it is coming. It will be a WONDERFUL SURPRISE.

    "It's Saturday - What are you sewing today?"

    My bottom to this comfy chair. :oops: :cry:

    Got some unexpected/surprising/a-bit-shocking news yesterday afternoon and am finding it hard to focus, care, stay awake, plan, do. I'll share it later.

    hopefully will finish last 6 blocks for block swap, clean up sewing room, start, again, on a paper pieced UFO, only need about 1 hr work then maybe start working on my next quilt design, tone on tone in nuturals hope it works. Oh ya I almost forgot have to load a backing on the long arm. Top already on it , when I went to piece the back discovered I used part of it for another project so needed to rethink my back. need to have that quilt done in two weeks. so after blocks will load it and start the quilting.

    I covered an old sofa cushion (given to me by a friend who got rid of her old furniture a couple of weeks ago) to use as a dog bed for my doxie this winter. It will give him 4 inches of insulation from the cold floor. Found som cheap flannel on ebay and it looks great now.

    Oh no, take care of yourself! Just breathe - the sewing will always keep. I hope everything is all right, or very soon will be.

    I am finishing a quilt for our guild show. All I need to do is some hand embroidery to finish off the hand applique rabbits on the quilt. I really need to finish this weekend.

    Thanks everyone. We knew it was coming (she had non-hodgkins lymphoma), but didn't expect it to be as quick as it was. She is in a better place and we know that, but she had been my mother-in-law for 40 years, so we were close. I was the daughter she never had. She just had 2 sons. But she's not suffering now and that's what matters. We will miss her, heal and go on.

    I prewashed some new fqs & the fabric I need for the next quilt club blocks. Got some neat ideas while doing the fqs, so may have to play with them soon! Love it when that happens!

    Working on a Carpenter Star for my youngest daughter. The braid border is slowing me down, but it's fun to do something new.

    Sorry to hear of your lost.

    I am working on a baby quilt for my new great niece. Two rows and the top will be done.

    Am piecing a quilt top for friend: Bear Paw blocks with sashings/cornerstones
    and other setting squares .... all in homespun, which is a real challenge
    as it wants to stretch and fray!

    My sewing project for the day is stripping the hardwood floor in my sewing room. 35 year old paint splatters (discovered upon removal of 35 year old shag carpet) are just not that attractive, so took it upon myself to get rid of them. Have about 1/3 of the floor stripped and the knees said "no more today" . Will get back at it tomorrow :evil:
