    How about you? What are YOU up to?
    Link it here and share it with me!!


    1. I will be working more on hexies and maybe a little sewing machine work too - it is supposed to be a very rainy day today - good sewing day

    2. I love seeing Snoopy on your page always!!!

    3. I had encouraged you to continue to blog when you were discouraged and I agreed to keep you up-to-date, also. My best sewing machine has died. I have others, so I don't know what I'm going to do. None of the others embroider and I don't know if I want to give up that feature even though I haven't used it. I have lots of patterns. Oh, well. Anyhow, my life has changed dramatically. My son moved in with me in October - more for his benefit. Then in early March his 2 1/2 year daughter came to life. He has hopefully a trial for permanent custody in October and she will be here always. She has been. So, it's difficult to do things. It's difficult to move two people into an already full house. I'm not used to noise and wow, a child is loud. I have fibromyalgia and part of that is migraines and severe pain. So, I definitely need a creative outlet. So, even though I projects too numerous to count. I signed up for a Baltimore quilt BOM. I plan to do my hand applique at night when the house gets quiet about 10 PM each night. I keep her Sat, Sun, and Mon from 4:30 AM until about 6:30 PM. He and I jointly do the kitchen work or take turns. I have her from 4:15 PM until about 10:30 PM Tues and Wed. Most of the rest of the time he has her primary care. He does all her baths, laundry, and discipline when he is here. Of course, like I said it still is tiring with my health. I wanted to let you know I still follow and am inspired. Thanks for blogging and all you do for keeping quilting in the forefront.


    Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
