Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Received my checks yesterday from the gallery and co-op. I actually made some money at the co-op! The gallery check was under $10. Glad I don't have to make a living doing jewelry. It's a beautiful day but cold. I'll be making meringues this morning then going to the co-op this afternoon. Because I have knitting group tonight I won't get another batch made today. Maybe I can get a couple done tomorrow. I can only do two batches a day since it takes about a total of 3 hours for one batch. And some people wonder why I only make them this time of year!
Hermit Jim at Coffee with the Hermit wrote about quilts. I have one in the making that I must finish so I can send it out to my niece. I have a number of unfinished projects that need to be done also. Maybe during the winter I can get some of them done. I need to get my basement more organized and finishing them will help.
Time to get a move on...y'all stay warm and dry and remember: You're never too old to learn something stupid.

I wish you would stop bringing up all the unfinished projects! I have so many in the works, I lose track of 'em!

Gotta finish some of them up and give them away...so I have room to start some more! You know how that goes, right?

Lord how I love bright colors. I was crazy for making quilts a few years ago. But I got discouraged when I could not wrangle the project of creating some of the applique hand work. All I can do is use a sewing machine and sew patches together. And then when I get the quilt together, and I'm ready to add the quilt batting, I can't do it on the sewing machine. All I can o is tack it together. I have one last quilt (actually a throw) that I put together, square by square. Now all I have to do is add the batting and the back. (the hard part) It has been sitting in the closet for 3 years.

Jim...at least you know you aren't alone with the unfinished.

Fiona....patience....that's what I learned from quilting. I don't quilt my own, I send it to one of our quilt guild members to do it. If you have a quilt guild in your area you might find someone who can help.
