Pleasant couple of days. I've gotten to enjoy swimming, have started quilting one quilt, and pin basted another. Tomorrow and Thursday I'll get to spend time with friends, and Friday will visit with family. Just have to find time to finish my... Read more

I've got to get back to sleeping at night. The staying up until 3 and waking up at 10 or 11 is not a good thing. This week I'll work on that goal. Yesterday's block - New England Block - was completed with dots and fantail fish. It was a... Read more

What a productive sewing day. I completed my best friend's birthday present (well, the top to it), made a tissue box cozy, made today's block, and got within two borders of completing the top to a UFO. I'll post a picture of the bff's birthday... Read more

Finally got the top of the table runner done. I'm not a fan of applique, mostly because I'm not very good at it...because I don't practice...because I'm not good at it... It's a viscous cycle of inactivity. This runner is a simple pinwheel pat... Read more

Four days in a row getting all my steps for the day! I actually love how I feel with exercise; wish I could always remember that. What's up with this Eat Fat, Get Thin program on PBS? I need to research. Today's block - Double Sawtooth -... Read more

Found some beautiful Alaskan art fish fabric today. Don't know what I'm going to do with it, but it'll be pretty. Maybe another bag. ... Read more

Finally got back into my full workout program the last 2 days. It's been hard to get out with all the fabulous (rainy) weather we've been having. The sun finally came out today for about 20 minutes before setting. Today's block - King's C... Read more

Went to an aquarium fancier's meeting this morning, and it just encouraged me to put in a goldfish pond. Now I just have to find some kind of container to set up for it - can't really dig a giant hole in the rental property yard. ... Read more

What have I accomplished in the last 3 days? Not much. Went back to the school to feed fish, got the interior top of the Astronomy quilt put together (just need the borders now), and finished all the laundry. Really not much. Tuesday's b... Read more

I shouldn't have said anything about yesterday's sunny day. Right after that, I went to visit a friend in the hospital and drove into a sideways storm. At least it only lasted about 10 minutes. Today's block - Juneau - is a bit more de... Read more

Sunny day! And my backyard is a swamp. Hopefully it will dry out soon, and my fruit tree won't drown. Today's block - Father's Choice - used up some of the mistaken cuts that I've made recently. Using up scraps of scraps is fun. ... Read more

I like rain and storms, but this is getting a bit beyond. It would be nice to be able to hang out with friends by the pool or at the beach for a day. Yesterday's block was Ladies' Wreath. The block pattern is nice, but the snake skin fa... Read more
