Does Life Get any Busier

I have been so busy.
I am always cutting something for my Kindergarten Class.
It's what a quilter does,
We cut
and then
we put it back together
and it looks

I have cut out 40 hand prints this week.
These should be cute.

I'm so grateful for all the cute ideas out there.

In the Groove

This summer, we were in line at the Merc
in Pawhaska, Oklahoma, when
I found the cutest quilt shop called

I purchased this fabric for a friend who has three girls and was having a boy.


I'm not sure what took me so long,
but it is tied up and ready to deliver.

I did some more machine quilting this week.
This is a little one,
and it needs some binding,
but I finally feel like I'm getting back in the grove.

I hate to say this, 
but the blue in this quilt kinda makes my stomach turn.
It is done!

I need a thank you gift for a foster grandma who works in my classroom.

I had this block sitting on my sewing table.

I made this much more difficult than it needed to be,
but it is ready to be presented to a very 
sweet, helpful and lovely lady.

Happy Sewing

I finished this quilt.
I will take a picture of it this week.
It is a give away.

I love this apron.
I made the first of four.
I went together fast and I hope my kids like it!

It Happened

I'm not sure exactly when,

I ran out of thread while quilting this quilt.
I realized that I have the middle done.
I don't think it happened then.

Unfortunatel, I had to go to the only fabric store around here that sells Gutermann thread.
I am not a huge fan of this store,
so I don't think it happened there.

I also bought fabric to line the aprons I need to make.
I don't think it happened then either.

But at some point the other day,
I had a desire to sew.

It has a been a while.

I hate it when it happens.

I know it will come back,
I don't know when.

Happy Sewing!

We have had some delightful weather this week in Southern Idaho.

I don't think I ever get tired of fall colors.

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?
