    what are you working on?

    I've got two projects going....sewing some small items for my etsy shop and working on a small quilt for a QuiltCampus class that I'm teaching I hope this spring. I've already made one so this one is to test my writing.

    So, how many projects do you have going and what are they?

    Not snowed in at all. The north country knows how to deal with 18 inches of the white stuff. I had an out of town Dr app't, which gave me an excuse to go to JoAnn's. I did run into some whiteouts of blowing snow coming home, but not too bad.

    I'm working on a quilt for a Cystic Fibrosis auction and maybe a table runner, too. Depends on how much I stay off the board.

    Trying to get the enrgy up to finish a set of cushions. Worked too late last night and had to use the seam ripper so maybe will get to it today but little energy.

    Not snowed in in Florida, but am working on a play mat for DGS's and it's a big job with my carpal tunnel acting up. Slow going. Also getting ready to start the next baby quilt due in May.

    We did get a little bit of snow, but not snowed in. I am working on quilting my OBW and Star Struck. Going to binding on this week on a small baby quilt.

    I am doing a UFO cleanout. So in my quilting frame is my SIL wedding quilt and by my tv chair is my honeymoon quilt. Just to give a time reference my wedding was 2001 and hers was 2006. Both quilts were sidelined in favor of commission jobs and I'm starting to feel guilty for putting family last.

    I worked on a tote bag for a colleague that retired in the spring yesterday. It's almost done - yippee. It was the first time I used the pattern so it was a bit of a challenge and I modified the way I did it. If I do it again, I'll make a few more modifications.

    I have a snowman wallhanging that's on the back burner right now. I also have Marine fabric to make my Uncle a quilt out of. Oh, and D9P blocks to make for our grandson.

    Lots going on, just the way I like it!

    I rearranged my sewing room this week. Started a new top, another scrap quilt while Im waiting for the ice to melt. This is the last of the 2 1/2" scraps. Got the top together in one day, gotta love scrappy they go together fast if you stay with a simple plan. Cant go wrong with 9 patch. Of course I'll post it when done. Hopefully by tomarrow. Simple quilting also, straight lines. I need to go to the fabric shop to get a couple colors of blue that I need for a lonestar that I'll be starting. Oh I started to make machine covers and the stitches didnt suit me so I threw it in the trash. Thinking about buying the prequilted or just using fusible fleece and not quilting them at all.

    Not snowed in here either but I have sandwiched the strip quilt for the love seat, made 8 different blocks for pillows and cut backing and batting for them and made a wallhanging with a patched heart, house and 2 cats with small pinwheels and broken dish blocks made from triangles cut off while making pillow blocks.

    Whew - that was a long-winded sentence!

    I'm NOT snowed in here in Florida, but do feel sorry for those of you that are since I'm originally from Indiana(only been in FL. for 6 yrs.). I'm hand quilting a quilt for my older brother, making some lounging pants for my DH, and working on 3 Christmas quilts for my DGD's.

    I am snpwed in here in north central Texas. We live in the country, and there is just no plan for heavy snow here. This is Day 5. But I am happily quilting, reading, and drinking hot tea. I just started a quilt from fabric I got for Christmas. It is my second attempt to use this fabric, as I was not happy with my first plan for it.

    So I have spent most of my "time off" planning to make sure I like this pattern and fabric together, but I do. It's for me. Most of my quilts are for me...selfish me. :)

    raining here today. Our children just surprised us with fresh bakery donuts and a visit . Came to say happy anniversary. I'm ready to do a little light cleaning and then working on a baby quilt.
