Hayes Corner

Another really nice block, and I finally used some of my leftover Doctor Who fabric. Of course I got the whole thing put together and realized the last 3 seams were wrong. It wasn't a bad look but it also wasn't RIGHT! After a brief debate wi... Read more

The Letter X

Saturday, February 06, 2016      0 comments

Very late night since I spent time with friends after work, so I didn't finish Friday's block until just after midnight. Finally got my thread issues fixed after they got worse - that also contributed to my late sewing. Not sure what the probl... Read more

Old Favorite

Still having to use my old (NOT favorite) machine - it sews sideways, and not in a good way. I've had to resew almost half of the seams. emoticonRead more

Philadelphia Pavement

Cool weather at last, and a simple block, meant I had time to make a big batch of veggie soup. Yummy and full of fiber. emoticonRead more

Feeling Prickly

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      0 comments

Yeah! No migraine today - I was grateful for a low-throb headache all day. Then I started working on today's block (Prickly Pear). Fairly easy, no problems cutting or piecing. Right up until the last 5 seams. Read more

Baby Bunting

Woke up with a migraine. Finally got past it this afternoon, but am still foggy. Fogginess meant I sewed one row into the block backwards - fixed that. Now I'm wondering if there's a block named Bye-Bye. Read more

Ribbon Quilt

Another beautiful, sunny day in Texas - what else is January for? Got a visit from my mom, in between her time staying with a friend in the hospital. She's staying at the hospital but showering at my house. (Partly) Because of that I didn't g... Read more

Hawaiian Nine Patch

Saturday, January 30, 2016      2 comments

Today I made Mrs. Keller's Nine Patch - it wound up looking a lot more like Hawaii than I had planned, but I like it. Seems like this isn't a new block for me. Don't know what I used it for, but it looks so familiar. I spent an awful lot of t... Read more

It's finally Friday! This weekend may be a wonderful time to go see one of the downtown parks since the weather is going to be so beautiful. The Japanese garden should be open, and there are the museums. In any case, I am looking forward to a... Read more

Back and forth, back and forth, all day long. I really felt like I was going in circles - maybe because I was. Circling the halls, circling the room, it did get me to my steps goal. Then half way through the day at work, my room looked like a... Read more

Rocky Mountain Chain

Today I almost met my steps goal, and lots of active minutes. Now I'm debating staying up and working out or getting sleep. Pretty sure that sleep is going to win out. Didn't I read that skimping on sleep is worse than skipping a workout? Or... Read more

What a day! What a day! What a stair climbing day! I don't even remember all those stairs, but according to the Fitbit I was up and down all day long. It almost makes me want to use a stair climbing machine at the gym, but that really sounds ... Read more

Today was a fairly good day. I enjoyed a calm work day with lots of cooperative people, A friend introduced me to Icelandic yogurt - good, but I'm not sure I'll buy more. Didn't move as much as I wanted. Still a good day. Today's block g... Read more

Rest Day - Lost Day

Sunday, January 24, 2016      1 comments

Not winning the Weekend Warrior challenge doesn't bother me. Having a third of the steps of the winner kind of does. I started out strong yesterday, but wound up not moving much today. Allergies hit today, so naps and sewing were the order of... Read more

I'm Back!

I'm back online and back in a Challenge. Still no idea what happened to my Internet service since the technician couldn't figure it out; he just ran new line. A friend from work Challenged four of us to a Weekend Warrior. He just got his Fitb... Read more
