Just because you asked

Posted by Picasa My guild met this weekend and as a policy we are only suppose to show finished quilts, thus I had to leave this lovely top at home. I took part in a Quilt-A-Long over at PS I Quilt and of course I did not stay on schedule, but I did finish about two weeks late.

I think I'll quilt it while I'm on retreat. Too much to do for my April quilt the retreat right now.

Fresh Start, almost

I'm completely overwhelmed with quilt projects, so I'm starting anew. Yes, indeed; I spent the last hour outlining what's on my plate and breaking it down so I can get it done.

I have "Scrapbag 2011 Retreat" coming up in April, I'm looking forward to it but I'm behind on two required projects. This is causing enormous stress, but I must have a new outlook...and as my lovely, always working, never tired, completely organized sister-in-law would say "get it together girl"!

However, when I walk in my quilt room I turn around and walk is a mess with projects everywhere. And now I'm procrastinating by blogging instead of sewing! Arggh! I think dinner will help. I'm truly a master at procrastination!

Feeling good

I'm on schedule with my first 2011 quilt along, from PSiQuilt, and feeling pretty good as long as I don't think about all the retreat assignments I'm behind on and all the projects I want to start.

Wow has it been a year!

Well, here I am again...going to try to blog consistently this year. Yes, I know, but you gotta believe right?

Anyway, this is usually and will continue to be mostly a quilting space, but of course, as life goes so will this blog.

Happy 2011, wishing you wonderful!

Need I say more. Just dug the car out AGAIN! Taking a mug of hot cocoa and retreating to my quilt room now. Making beautiful things from this book One Yard Wonders a gift from my friend Jackie

Losing Dad

Dad is home safe, but I am losing him. How sad I am these days watching my dad drift away from me. Just like Grandma, first the forgetfulness, then confusion, then suddenly I'll be lost. One day he won't know me, it may only be for a moment, a minute or two, but that day is coming. How do you prepare yourself for that day? When the person who made you the person you are doesn't know you.

Perhaps, I'm the one that is lost, running away from that dreaded day.

Millions of children and spouses face this everyday, I know, but comfort in numbers I do not take.
