Baby Steps

I promised myself some sewing time this weekend.

It was close, but I cleaned off the sewing table.
And threaded the sewing machine.

And then I put this back together.

It is ready to quilt.

Baby Steps.

Disappearing Sewing Time

I have a camera problem.

Let's face it,
I have a sewing problem.

I just don't have enough time right now
to sew.

I have finished 4 rows of this quilt.

And  I finished the little cowboy quilt.
I have 2 now.

Now I need to find my 1 sewing hour on Saturday afternoons.

I need it.

Doesn't everyone need  Sewing Time?

Cross Stitch

My cross stitch project is almost done.

I just found this in some stuff my mom gave me,
but I have really enjoyed it.

I guess I'll have to find a new project to work on.

How did I do that?

When I made the first Cowboy quilt,
I cut out the second one.

It was my intention to make both quilt tops before I went back to work.

Well, that didn't happen.

Yesterday, I carved out a couple of hours to sew.

For the life of me,
I could not remember what to do.

I started slow.
I figured it out.

I hope to finish the quilt top tomorrow.

And then?

I'm not sure.

Cross Stitch

Have I ever mentioned that I love cross stitch?

It can be so addicting.

I found this cross stitch in some things my mother gave me.
I have been working on it when I haven't been hand quilting.

Boy, was I happy to see it this week.

I do feel like I need to work on this quilt.

So I made a deal with myself.
First work on this quilt..for a half hour,

Then I can cross.

Happy, Happy, Happy

Yellow Bird Quilt

I have been working on this for most of the summer.
I sat down last Tuesday and finished the quilting on it.

We took it to Canada and delivered it to my newest grand daughter.

We drove home on Monday and I was up and at work on Tuesday.
It has been a crazy week there.

I am hoping for some sewing time soon.
Sewing time makes my day.

Happy Solar Eclipse!
We are 97%  here.
Should be a treat.

Saturday Quilting

 I had some mighty big quilting plans for my Saturday.

But the first thing I did was cut my finger.
I had a hard time getting it to stop bleeding.

But I wrapped  it up
and went to work.

I made this quilt for my daughter.
I love this quilt, but it was falling apart.
As I was mending it, I realized that it needed more quilting.
So I added more quilting lines.

I have to say, that machine quilting is hard on my body, 
but I feel better today.

I dropped by the Farmers Market yesterday.
Sunflowers make me happy.
