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.

Busy weekend

Friday and Saturday were days filled with sorting and organizing papers; like my greeting cards and this address file.

Sunday afternoon was spent creating a pattern for me to make my own bras from t-shirt scraps and quilting stash. 

I have the pattern done and made one sample to test for fit.  It's not completely finished.  There are only a couple of adjustments to make in the pattern and I'm ready to make some bras.  I plan to do a tutorial on my helpful hints blog as soon as I find time.  (Does anyone know where Mr. time is hiding?)  I need time for cutting fabric and sewing so I can take photos of the process then write the directions.  What do you think.... pretty colorful huh?

Yesterday I got back onto the quilting machine.   I got a little over half way finished with the quilt.  There's lots of stops and starts when doing the background design of cross stitched quilts.  I should be able to get pretty close to finishing this one today before Ladybug gets here. 

I feel as if I'm moving at a snail's pace most days even though I'm getting stuff done.  I guess it's because in the past my days were filled with quilting and little else.  Now that I'm not finishing one or two quilts a day, time feels different.  It's hard to describe the feeling.  I feel as if I should be producing more quilting work and at the same time I feel good when I accomplish something other than quilting work.  Maybe I'm just weird.
