The Time Has Come

I have been looking at this for some time.  I have even partially assembled two quilts and just hung them on top of this one........  The time has come to get on with it........ Not being sure of what I am doing does make me want to postpone it but there is a deadline and I need to get it done.


This is the section I have decided to tackle first.......


I started by making a graph so that I could determine the sashing sizes needed....  The hexagons will be appliqued in place and I need to sew the flying geese together to get an exact size but this is a good start....

It will be interesting to see just how far along I get today.

Another Finish


Another wee sampler that I kitted a few years ago......... Amazing the things I find (and lose) as I continue to organize the upstairs............ 

I uncovered a cross stitch started back in 1986...........Almost finished...........I have the perfect place to hang it but I have lost it again........  Maybe it will turn up again in a few days..........

This Week

This promises to be another full week...........  I need to get this quilt put together and ready to baste before the third Wednesday in June so that I can demonstrate Sharon Schambers method of basting a quilt alone..


We are trying out some new recipes from a cookbook given to me by a friend.....  Last night was Herb Simmered Beef Stew.......Delicious..




Last Friday I went with friends to Happy's, an antique shop in the area.......  Found a few things to change the living room a bit.............  This replaced an Easter decoration.


Went upstairs this morning to select fabric for another Quilt Along.......  No I have not finished the last quilt from Judy's Quilt Along but I see no reason for that to keep me from joining in on this one..........
What are your plans for the week.....

Oh Happy Day...........

Okay, so it was the last week in April but this is the first time I have had time to get to the computer...  Maybe I should rearrange my priorities..............

WE HAD GUEST................  Dear Jean came to visit......... All the way from Cape Cod..........  And what did I do for entertainment?  We went to a family reunion of course..............
