Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

Where does time go?

Finally, another finished quilt. This one took much longer to finish than I originally thought it would. A lot of starts and stops. I also have a pulled muscle on my side that hurts when I move the machine.

A fun feather on the outside border.

A curl design on the inside border.

A leaf design on the setting triangles.

Line dancing on these pieced blocks.

Diana Phillips' flower power design on the alternate blocks.

A flower design and bubbles on the other alternate blocks.

It's hard to believe it's already almost the middle of March. Where on earth does the time go so fast? I work everyday but seem to be only spinning my wheels.... not getting anywhere. The only thing I can figure is that the quilts I've been doing are large and I do a lot of quilting on them with many starts and stops.
I tried adding a counter to my blogs this morning. I've tried several times to put one on them and always get frustrated when I can't make it work. Well I managed to put something.... not what I thought it was.... but still there is something on both blogs. These will stay as they are until I get another couple of hours to learn more about how to make changes. No telling when that will be.
This moring I was watching the early news about how some people (GM, Citibank, etc) say they no longer need government money. Huh? Does this mean they could have done without it in the first place? Or possibly they don't want to be transparent? Seems to me that not too long ago these people were so absolutely sure that if they didn't receive government money our whole financial system would collapse..... so what's different today than only a few weeks ago? It makes me wonder WHO is being dupped in this whole financial situation? But.... that's just my own opinion.

YEAH, another one DONE. done is good. I'm with you.. the harder i try, the more life events come along, and other obstructions. and then the "detailed" as in much more time consuming quilts. All we can do is just keep plugging along.

and i think we are ALL getting duped in this financial situation.

I love the colours in that quilt, and you did a beautiful job with quilting (as always).

I love this quilt Anita and the quilting you did really enhanced it. Do you know the name of the pattern?
