No Time!

WOW- it's been over a week! SO much has gone on I feel like I've hardly had time to breath, let alone blog!!

I finished up a couple quilts in the last week... they just needed the binding sewn down.

Peace On Earth

This one has flannel on the back- it will be so cozy to cuddle with in the wintertime!

Illinois In Springtime

And this one just looks like sunshine! I had it over a chair in the living room today and it almost shone- it will be so nice to look at on dreary winter days!

I had a really good time at my quilt retreat! I finished Mom's grocery bags and put together 2 quilt tops. I didn't get as much done as I wanted to, I was fighting a bladder/kidney infection the whole time and the antibiotic made me tired.

I intended to do some more sewing when I was at Mom and Dad's Tuesday-Thursday, but I forgot my cutting mat and pretty much couldn't do anything! I did knit some hats for them to take to work- they are collecting winter gear for needy children, so I whipped up a couple of baby hats.

Koats For Kids Baby Hats

My Mommy made me this GORGEOUS crocheted shawl for winter- isn't it just amazing? It's so warm and soft and cuddly and wonderful! My Mommy is so good to me :) It's made with this amazing superwash wool yarn that's nice and springy and keeps it's shape. I love it!!

My Gorgeous New Shawl!

Now I'm working on getting some swap stuff done before we leave on vacation in 2 weeks!

I haven't forgotten about my giveaway- but it's going to be a little while longer. I really need to slow down and take time for myself, my hubby and my home. I've been getting sick and not eating well because I'm too busy, and that's just not good at all!!


  1. I do hope you are feeling better soon. What lovely quilts you have made! The shawl is wonderful. Ann :)

  2. Isn't that 1st one you had sewn wrong at the first guild retreat & had to rip the whole thing and resew? It looks great, Chocolat from Moda?

  3. @ QuiltMom: Um... the "Chocolat" one was the one I couldn't get to work at all, and I threw it in the fireplace last winter (with a fire burning). This one is "Peace On Earth" fabrics by 3 Sisters- all their fabric looks the same... Chocolat was by them too!
