Where have I been???

Well, I'm sure you all have been on pins and needles wondering where I've been for the last couple of weeks. I know my riviting posts about cutting off my mole and forgetting to wear deoderant have kept you on the edge of your seats wanting more.

But seriously, it's been a little crazy around these parts lately. I've been working a lot - a whole lot. Thankfully, that seems to be slowing down some and I can hopefully get back to my normal amounts of laziness.

I commited to finishing an unfinished sewing project in the month of October on Joy's blog. She's going to have a giveaway for all the participants. I decided that this would be a great time to finish a rag quilt I started for my friend, K's youngest. It's way overdue seeing  as how she turned 2 in July. Yes, the depth of my procrastination has no bounds.

Last Sunday afternoon I decided to finish it up. I only had 3 rows left to sew so I knew it wouldn't take long. I had just finished it up, opened a drawer to look at some fabric and found a stack of squares that I had started sewing and never finished. I have no idea who I started this quilt for, but somewhere out there I assume there's a 5 year old who will never be the same for not getting a quilt lovingly made with my own two hands.

I'm not sure where it came from, but I was overcome with a need to finish it too. All I can say is I really hope I win. Here they are Joy!




I really do love sewing and wish I could do more of it. Unfortunately, I have to balance it with all my TV watching. Priorities.

Jill! I am so impressed! I mean after I got to walk around Publix Saturday while Abbie went on and on and on about how you were the best Aunt ever, I didn't think it could be topped. (I asked her if you would adopt me as your niece. She didn't even hesitate - NO.)
You need to go to part-time so you can sew more.

I love that you're funny and you procrastinate as much as I do. I'm impressed with your quilts. I just got my very own sewing machine and have yet to learn to sew a straight seam.
