stash report

Last week I put together two small quilts for newborns in need and I have blocks made for 4 more. I'm not sure how much stash I've used this month because I didn't really keep track. I did buy some fqs to use for my wonky cats but used them all up and they won't be going into the stash. :)

I'm looking forward to Judy's quiltathon this weekend. I plan to the quilting on the small quilts and if time permits work on my thimbleberries.

I've been tagged

Colleen over at Crazy for Primitive Quilts and Gardens has tagged me to name 7 things about myself. Let's see.......

1. I married my darling hubby 29 years ago after dating him for 3 months....married in November, pregnant by December.

2. We are both the middle child of 7 children.

3. I have 2 sons who are would think I wouldn't be so computer challenged.

4. I have an older brother and 3 younger sisters. We all have children, either two boys or three girls and it seems to go in order age wise....kinda strange. I have 2 deceased siblings in case you were wondering about # 2.

5. I had the most wonderful mother and father-in-law.....couldn't have handpicked them any better.

6. I used to play guitar and sing.....loved folk music.

7. I'm learning to play the fiddle.....I love Irish fiddling.

There you have it. The rules say I have to name 7 but since I'm sort of a rebel I'll just tag you all and you can play if you like. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

too busy or bored

Kim asked me if I was too busy or too bored to blog. I would have to say a big "no" to I think the fact of the matter is that I'm just a "bad blogger." The days just seem to get away from me and before I know it a few weeks have passed. I started this post on Saturday......

I have been working on a few things....some wonky cats, a small quilt for valentines day, a quilt for nin and of course my thimbleberries. I've been doing some stitching on my Quilter's Journey and I did prep block one of my butterflies quilt.

My friend Cindy made this for me....isn't it just the cutest?

I really am going to try and be a better blogger. Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
