Getting A Few Things Done from Quilting My Way

Today was a good day. I was able to do a lot that I wanted to do.

I got an email with the list of what the group wanted as far as the floss goes. I took them out, logged what was left and then posted to the group they were for sale. I'm going to give it a couple days and if they don't reply, I will sell the rest on eBay.

Then I started out with trying to decide what I want to work on next. So, I started going through my bead patterns.


I decided ...

We Finally Got Out Of The House from Quilting My Way

Today started out early. We wanted to head to Tumwater for Costco. We hadn't been up there in awhile, so we planned a trip up there.

Off we went! We had 4 shopping lists for the trip. We shopped for our neighbor, mom, Phil, and us. We arrived early. We were in a line for a very short time. I don't think we had to wait more than 2 mins. They had the wall marked for where we had to stand. They wiped down the carts before they gave them to us. We got in and it wasn ...

Hello Saturday! Another Day Gone By.... from Quilting My Way

Well, here we are back to Saturday. Not much has changed. Not much going on.

This morning I played a few games. It's going to be interesting tomorrow, as Patrick and I have decided to "go off the grid" with computers, tablets, and phone. We won't be doing anything on the net, but I will be doing my blog at the end of the day.

I went downstairs and got my two cross stitch pieces ready to go. I sewed the extra on the ends, then I put the smaller one on a frame. The bigger one will ...

A Day Of Stitching - Sewing from Quilting My Way

Yep, that's what I said, "A Day Of Sewing." All because I needed to get a couple tops done for QOV.

After getting moving this morning, Patrick was a sweetheart and went to get the fireplace going. I had to do a few things and took my time getting downstairs. I called and talked to Sharon and Bill first. It was a long chat because Sharon likes to chat. We talked about the beading. She's on row 69 of the covered bridge one.

Downstairs I went. Then I got to work on the quilt top. I had about ...

Where Do You Get Your Design Inspiration? Appliqué Inspiration From Interior Design Fabrics from Cheeky Cognoscenti

I'm still plugging away at my Spirit Song quilt top, albeit intermittently.  So far I have four of the twelve 16" blocks completely assembled:


Four 16 Inch Blocks Assembled, Eight More to Go
It's tedious piecing at this point because I'm matching up triangles with seams that don't nest.  Lots of unpicking and finessing to get those triangle points to match up to my satisfaction!  But meanwhile, my mind is on other projects, inspired by everything I see around me.  If you're one of those sensible people who has made a resolution not to start ...

Rain, Rain, Go Away, Come Back Another Day! from Quilting My Way

As much as I like rain, this is getting out of hand. We've been pouring rain for 3 days and we've been getting rain off and on before that even.

Today I went up to Tumwater to see Sharon and drop off a quilt to Bill. Actually that was the top I finished a couple days ago. It rained the whole time up there. The worst parts were passing trucks. It doesn't matter how bad the roads are, there is always someone in a hurry that has to pass me by 10 miles an hour more! And ...

Beading And Bowling from Quilting My Way

This morning I slept in. I think I'm still getting over the cold. I keep coughing and blowing my noise at times. So, it felt good to sleep in.

Sharon called this morning to see if I wanted to get some more beads. Told her I would call her back. I wanted to finish my ornament and then go through all my beads to see what I needed for one of my projects.


This was finished - and I FORGOT to take a photo of it when it was done. It's better than mine. I wrapped it up for ...

A Rainy, Busy Day from Quilting My Way

This morning Patrick was up and out the door way before me. He went to work on his CEU's for his certificate. They had a meeting in Olympia. That lasted all day Of course the road to and back from Olympia was awful and pouring rain.

I got up later, and was out the door by 9 am. First I headed to the post office to get the quilt out in the mail. It's ready to be awarded to Lester Dingus. I wanted to make sure he got a quilt, and that's the least we could do ...

More Beads from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and out the door by 8:30 am. I went up to Olympia to pick Sharon up. Then it was off to the doctors.

Good news from the doctor. My breasts are fine. lol - Good news. She thinks the pains I may have have to do with mussels or heart. Will keep tracks for that and see what comes next.

Then it was off to Shipwrecked Beads. Sharon and I bought some beads for the ornaments. I've got enough to do a couple more ornaments. I'm looking forward to get another one or ...

I've Had Better Days from Quilting My Way

Today I was up early. I enjoyed an hour or so by myself - with Sophie. I played a few games and enjoyed the morning....

Then Patrick got up and started working out in the yard. I went and got the bucket of apples. I started cutting the apples for apples sauces and then made a crisp. My fingers were getting sore. I wasn't looking forward to bowling with the way my left hand was feeling.

While I was cooking the apple sauce, I thought I would try to make a beaded twisted earrings. It was an idea for Christmas ...
