    I am working on an embroidered Christmas quilt, 48x48 and for bad or good, I don't like to stop what I start, so I have decided to work on this quilt all summer while it is nice enough to sit outside and listen to a good book, or hear the birds or visit with the neighbors. It is the same design all four sides and the border which says "Merry Christmas" two times on each side is done in three shades of red - oh, yah, it is all cross stitch!!!!. It is a kit I got from a friend of mine (she hates me) that included everything except the back and the binding. It has little printed dots all over it to follow with the needle when I hand quilt it! It is called Holiday Treasures and there are 8 Santas, 8 angels, 12 ornaments, holly and pine cones, ribbons, berries, 8 candy canes. I have been working on it for two years now - You can Google it. It is Bucilla Holiday Treasures - 85312. I take it to the drs. office when I take Mom to the dr. If my husband has to have a procedure done or something, I take it along, when we go for an overnight to the casino, it goes with me. It is my closest companion. I keep everything in a little black bag with a handle so it is quite conveniently packed to pick up and go! That is my project for the summer. Now, aren't you glad you asked???????? Have a great day!

    I bought a "Curve Master" foot to do a "Drunkard's Path" quilt. It works like a charm for curved seams (convex and concave). No pins, no puckers. Take a look at their site http://www.justcurves.biz/ Hope this helps.

    Everybody's going to have sooooo much fun this week. I am in the process of finishing up UFO's. Just a couple more to do. Then I will work on DGSs fleece blanket for him to take to college in the fall, but I will present it to him at his graduation party July 7th. Also have a bunch of charity stuff to work on. I also want to start on another bargello, this time in blacks/greys/browns batiks.

    I finished two tops one is a baby quilt. Need to get backing and quilt. Also have a mystery quilt half pinned so I need to finish that project so I can quilt it. I have a purse all cut out and ready to sew. Then there are projects in my closet in containers I need to get started on. I have enough to keep me busy for two years so I sure hope I don't find another project in the LQS!!! Have a great summer!!

    Since I just returned from a two week visit with my parents and my sister in florida, I am in withdrawal from such a long quilting hiatus! I cannot wait to get started on ANYTHING that hits my hand first. I did, however, attend a large estate sale and scored a super clean 301 minus the cord for a mere $20. I also scored a HUGE box filled with Thimbleberry fat quarters for an additional $10. I am a very happy camper!!

    Right now, just making a few tops to wear for summer. NOT QUILT TOPS!

    I'm waiting so I can finish my plans for a quilt I'm making for a gal in Texas. It's a total surprise, so I have no deadlines to meet, which right now, is the best kind of project for me.
    This gal has been her county's district attorney and just got voted out, so she's starting a practice, and mentioned a logo a graphic designer is working on, so I thought I'd make her one, with her logo on it.

    She's big into horses, and I know that's part of her logo, and it's black with turquoise, that's all I know right now
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    I am finishing quilting on GD 66 x 95 hot pink quilt. Making & quilting a John Deere themed one for her brother. And finishing quilting a client's wall hanging. As well as cutting fabric for a class on Saturday. Good thing grandkids quilt are edge to edge quilting. I can do a little bit of the other work while Intelliquilter stitches across them.

    Learner 747,

    Wishing you a fast recovery. That is what happened to my knees, first the left and before the next Dr. visit, the right one.

    Rest is the cure now.

    This week I want to finish the two purses that are causing me to tear out my hair! Maybe I'll then get around to quilting the wallhanging that has been on my design wall since Christmas, complete the pot pinchers that I cut out at Christmas. THEN, I've got a New York beauty kit that I might pull out of the package since my son no longer camps out in my sewing room. In between, I guess I might ought to do a little house cleaning. Guessing is about as close as I'll probably get, though! LOL

    I am still working on my Iowa stash. I am on box 23 and up to 2300 yds of fabric. Every piece I fold I can see a project to use it for. I am also making dog blankets as I go out of the pieces that are stained or faded. I need to put a friends quilt on the frame and get it quilted. I want to start some other stuff, but I am determended to finish up some stuff first.

    Well yesterday I made a Winnie The Pooh fabric book, and started on a chanell panel...the one that was posted here, I didn't have 3 matching panels just 2, so only the top panel will get sliced...Not sure it will work, but it's a good base for learning the technique. They were great panels and cheap, but for today, I'm off to take a 2 hour trip one way to take my father out for Father's day supper....

    Due various medical type things I need to pace myself, last weekend I did various gardening type things, this weekend I was out all day yesterday at my quilt group where we had a bring and buy sale. I came home with a couple of bits, including an Amy Emms, history of durham quilting book, and a "how to make a giant dahlia on a sewing machine" book. today I am baking, but I would like my next project to be sew some DJ blocks together.

    A few friends and I started doing this quilt individually about 6 years ago. None of us ever finished it, and one of them, last month gave me her 27 blocks and said "here, put them with yours". But rather than put them in my cupboard, never to see light of day again, I'm going to sew them together 5 x 5 and give them back to her because she is the local Linus co-ordinator. But I'm unlikely to start that this weekend because I feel like I've been run over by a truck. I'm putting that down to the fibromyalgia, rather than any actual road accident.

    Wish I could get inspired this time of year but it is impossible. I have a garden to tend to. I have made a trip to NY to help my daughter to plant her garden. I am leaving Sat. for Denver CO to attend a graduation. After that I am going to NY again to can tomatoes and other veggies. So you see...there is no time to sew....I will pick back up in the fall I hope...

    I am working on "Blue's Clues" blocks for a little boy about to go under his second liver transplant. His grandmother is making him a quilt of Blue's Clues since it is his very favorite and has asked help with the blocks...
    got to get this quilt finished.

    The request came from the FandomInStitches website.

    What better project is there than for a child needing comfort.

    I am trying to clean house this weekend, and maybe get some piecing done for one or more of my many UFOs! But I seem to be spending too much time on the computer!

    I am finishing a quilt that has taken me forever to complete because I have hee hawed around way too long with it. I think I will do just a little more quilting, put on the binding and a label and it will be done. Finally! Then I'm going to start a new quilt for our next grandbaby who is due in Oct. It's a little boy and he is getting a cowboy quilt.

    I love to hear what everyone is working on today. I am trying to finish a Gone With the Wind quilt for my Mother. I bought the fabric two years ago and I am finally about to get the top together. I really am trying to finish UFO's before buying anything new to sew.
