I'm Back

Gee, I didn't realize it's been so long since my last post.  Anyhoo  WELCOME and HELLO---- I'm still doing my Granny duties at my daughters' home.  I brought my sewing machine, couple of projects but, I am still missing things I need to use and they're NOT HERE AT HER HOUSE.  Come January, I'll return to my own nest.  Thanks for letting me rant a bit.

In an earlier post, I showed pics of a Christmas panel I wanted to make for three houses, well, I'm still on numero uno and I do believe the other two will be for Christmas 2013.  It's taking me much longer to do than I thought it would.  It's a panel and should be a quick project, I planned to just do a few straight lines (my quilting foot is at my house)  and add a few embellishments right?  Oh no, not me, I have to outline Santa Clause,  the tree, can't leave the teddy bear unlined and darn it the little rag doll , what? there is a Christmas stocking too!!  Yeah, yeah, yeah  I did them all plus more

and now I'm doing the  "Tis the Seasoning".  I still have the trinkets for embellishments  but I'm going to let the Grands do that part so they're have some ownership of making their wall hanging.

               Too late now but it could use a larger border.  Oh well.......

After I do the binding, I'll hang it, daughter Kim, will hang it and I'll post the final quilt!!!!

Piece and prayers til the next time,


  1. Hey, I think you're doing a great job getting THAT much done away from home. Even when I bring stuff with me, if I'm not in my studio...it's just not the same...or as productive. The time with the grandkids will overcompensate for anything you're not sewing.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I'll post my reply here since I didn't have your email...

    LOL! Back to those hippie dippy hazy days!

  2. Yes, you're right, the time with the grands makes it okay.

    Peace and Love

  3. Enjoy the times with the grandkids. Mine is thousand of miles away and right now a visit is not in the cards. :-(

    It's hard to sew away from home. Heck, I even have a difficult time to sew at classes. Don't know why, either. I'm just OCD for my space.

    Have a great visit!

    1. I don't think I'll try again, just spend the time with them. Sorry, you're so far away from them. OCD, you're funny
