Under Pressure

Today's horoscope said
You may be under pressure to finish a project that you've delayed again and again. Today, however, you have run out of valid excuses. But this isn't the real reason to jump in and get the job done. Sometimes procrastination does serve a purpose. But now it's quite simple; you'll just feel better once you finally cross this task off your list

It would be nice if I knew which project I was suppose to finish.

think this one will be the one, I am making it for someone else. the houses are all done, I still needs the border and then quilted. I will be quilting this in sections, and then put it together.

Actually this one is done, it just needs the binding sewn down. (I couldn't find the finished photo)

The border fabric has been finally been decided on for this one, this will be my next finish.

Then I must do something with these, they have been hanging around for a couple of years.


Happy Quilting!

Still building houses.

Yes I am still building houses. I was planning to share them with you this morning but my camera does not want to cooperate. So I am just checking in to say I am still here, and busy as ever.
Last week was full of sewing, taking friends to doctors, going to two sewing groups and volunteering for the Pix theater fund raiser.

Oh glory be there was a robin in my front yard yesterday, here in Idaho that means spring is just around the corner, the daffodils will soon be poking their heads through.

I have been missing my kids something awful, so next week I will be flying to Portland for a week, I bet the daffodils will be blooming there.

Happy Quilting!

Building Houses on Rosebud Lane

I built a house over the weekend, and I have a good start on a second house. I have also completed all the setting blocks. This is so much fun.

I won't be able to work on it today. My friend Marge is having a battery of tests done today so I will be spending my day in the waiting room. I have my Northstar hand quilting to take along today.

Happy Quilting!

Found my new challenge.

I will be a strolling down Rosebud Lane, a 70 x 70 quilt.
A friend ask me to make this quilt for her, she will be purchasing the fabric and I get to have all the fun.

I have five house to build during these economically slow times. This is going to be fun, each house block is 14 x 14, and entirely different from what I have been doing.

Happy Quilting!
