I’m waiting on some service people to show up and get the propane tank hooked up to the propane furnace before I “get” to go in and work for my other boss today. I should be spending my time cleaning house and doing office work for DH. Yes, I really should.
But I think I’m going to do some sewing instead!!
Have a good day!
I know I have way too many projects right now. I have to get some complete finishes crossed off my list before I start anything else. Especially some of the hand work projects because there are quite a few of them that are languishing in the back of the closet.
But I am SO wanting to make a red and green quilt!!!
Here’s a few that get my motor revved up:
And here’s a detail of a border that I really like:
Aren’t they lovely!?! But I “Must-Resist-Gorgeous-New-Project. Must-Finish-Already-Started-Projects.”
Okay, I’m going to go do battle with my QADD and try to get some things done!
Work – why the heck do I have to work!?!
Oh, I guess it’s so I can put food on the table – maybe I’ll have to keep the job. “sigh”
Yes, I’m working for the other boss again today, instead of working on the half a gazillion nine patch blocks that I need to make!
I have managed to fit in some work on a last minute top secret project. I’m using GIANT pieces in it (4 1/2″ squares and half square triangles), so it’s going together pretty quickly. Sorry I can’t reveal any more details right now. Although, this might give you a clue about the recipient:
Okay, I better get to work.
I have to show you my nine patches. I have reached the half-way point for the gazillion that I need:
Don’t they look pretty on the table like that!?! I love these little nine patch units,, can’t wait to get the quilts finished!!
Now, about that sewing buddy of mine. I’ve read that having a pet can help you live longer and be happier. And that is certainly possible. I do know that having a pet means there is never a dull moment!
Norman likes to keep me company when I am sewing (or when I am watching TV, or reading or eating or sleeping, for that matter!!!) Here he is keeping me company weekend before last while I was putting together the “Jamestown Landing” blocks:
He did not seem to mind at all that he was getting buried under piles of fabric!
Then this morning, just as I was trying to snap the photo of all my nine patches, he decided that he needed to check them out:
If you look closely on the right side of the first photo, you can see a shadow of his paw as he was beginning to jump up on the table. Good thing I got the photo when I did, because now half of the blocks are on the floor!
