I need a design board ๐Ÿค” or wall… anything other than the floor ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ (espescially cause I cannot run the vacuum when the house is asleep)[well I can]{its just not recommended ๐Ÿคญ}

Excuse the grungy floor… too many hairy critters about to be sure…โท

The purple cotton keeps bunching up… but since I didn’t prewash any of these cottons it won’t matter ๐Ÿ˜œ and crinkles will be here to stay.

Anyways… I’m going to use the dark material for the back.

I just need to decide what size this baby is going to be… I’m at a point where I’m feeling selfish about my hobby… I want them all for me lol!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ but they cant all be queen size… or can they? Hmmm ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ so yeah what size is this one going to end up? ๐Ÿค” we will find out in the future!

Anyways its d&d tonight so I gotta get my head on backwards lol

Hi, long time no see. Also, long time no sew. I just skimmed through a bunch of my previous stuff to see where I left off and provide proper updates but also I need to leave in a minute so why am I starting this now???

Just wanted to say my machines all serviced ๐Ÿ’ช and I missed sewing soooo much!!

The back for the last top I made
Remember this?
I made this mask

Happy stitching ๐Ÿ™‚

THIS IS HOW IT IS:

I’m a scattered mess a lot of the time. I have too many interested & responsibilities that I juggle poorly. More like a dog who is running from window to window overwhelmed by the squirrels and sparrows and turkeys with no ability to stay focused on just one thing for any proper length of time. FIRETRUCK

music jan 17I have been indulging in the classical music of late.ย  It seems to go good with life! So much drama! So much excitement!!

Classical Music Clangย Playlistย on spotify

Now that I am back (Guess who’s back? Back again-) I have been seeing all these posts concerning finishing old projects.ย  Well let me tell you I have a few I definitely want to finish!!

 

  1. The Narwhal Coaster that I was working on in my last post (see hereย Lazy poster)
  2. The Garden Quilt (see here Its an ity bity)
  3. The Star Quilt (see here It took 2 years!) I did end up cutting out all the pieces but I have to put the entire top together still…
  4. Another Apron (like this one It took 2 years!) I know a person who deserves a decent apron!

Oh my gosh so much has changed and hasnt changed in the last year and a half since I have been posting. The kids are all bigger – MUCH BIGGER – Why are they so BIG bigger lol!!!!!

So yeah – They all got considerably bigger. Hayden is taller than me know & Hazel is like an inch shorter than me ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Everything has its ups and downs living with mom but we have been doing the best we can ๐Ÿ™‚ Also Gary is the greatest boyfriend โค He makes me really happy!!ย  All in all I am very blessed to be surrounded by good friends and family.

THE PLAN:

I guess I have a lot of goals to set. I dont want to get overwhelmed So Goal 1 is simply to finish the Narwhal Coaster by mid February. That seems do-able.

I have also started another blog about Fish Keeping Freshwater Aquatic Adventures

Anyways if the photo of me and my mom there is The Garden Quilt all balled up on my bookshelf. I see it every day.ย  I still don’t know about what to do for the back of it. I really wanted to piece the back with random scraps as I mentioned in previous blogs but the truth is I havent been sewing because I think my machine either needs a major maintenance or to be replaced and single mom of 3 kids on 1 income means all the extra crap goes on credit and I try to limit that. So I just sort of put everything on the back burner but the problem is too much time goes by wayyyy tooo damned fast.ย  Ai karamba! So I guess the easiest thing to do is hand sew and use the big stripey fabric for the back.ย  I mean come on we aint getting any younger here ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well I hope everybody has a positive day!

So after a week or two of re-learning how to use my sewing machine tonight I finally felt ready to make my first quilt square.
After watching countless tutorials that make everything look extremely easy I was not surprised to make a few mistakes! This doesn’t bother me I’m totally thrilled to be on my way FINALLY!

So here is my first 9 patch, assembled from a disassembled dress that I suppose represents a friendship just as disassembled as it (not sure how I feel about that) ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‰

I do know that suddenly out of nowhere a strong and undeniable urge to quilt has overcome me. I think rationally that I probably don’t want to go back to school for one more gruelling semester before graduation…
YAY 9-PATCH! \o/
