I knew that I would, but not when…
Those of you who’ve known me for a while know that I have been fighting the good fight to regain my life again. I have been suffering from agoraphobia and depression for a few years.
Buying the Mountain Farmlet (hidden benefits there) and pure determination have been my only tools to overcome the disability.
One of the saddest manifestations of this disorder was my lack of drive to do anything I once loved to do.
Well, I’m definitely on the downhill side of this mountain and the fabric is flying again!
I finished the extra long robe I cut out last February.
I’ll stay warm this winter even if not *fashionable.
And now I’m quilting again!
I’ll share the result when I am done, and I promise not to take 8 months to do it!
Have a blessed weekend.
*NOTE: Why is it that when the fabric stores have a big sale on fleece they only have kiddie prints? Where’s all the fleece in Adult prints? Do they even make such a thing? Equally important, why is it that here in Huntsville you can never find a really warm robe that is long enough to cover your legs down to the ankles?
Making a fleece robe for an adult is expensive, even when the fabric is on sale, but we do what we must to keep our pegs warm! Even when it means running about wearing Teddy Bears and looking like a big kid.
Item: Christmas Candle Mat
Pattern: Churn Dash
Size: 17 X 17 inches
Machine pieced and quilted, with hand rolled and sewn binding.
Practice, practice, practice!
So is it late for Christmas, or just very early?
- UFO’s – a look at the last year and a look at the new year (crossroadsquilts.wordpress.com) (This is what I’m working towards. )
I have been spinning my wheels for a couple of weeks now. Trying to get things done and it was just impossible! Why? Because my studio was a HOT MESS!
So, taking a day off from wheel spinning, I cleaned up, organized, and put almost everything I had pulled out from the fabric wall…
back where it belongs. Wondering about my little Barista Bears everywhere? They are space blockers to keep my naughty kitties off my fabric!
Well, I am done cleaning and putting away, but it still looks cluttered. I think I need to hang some shelves on this wall. Maybe a gallery above with a quilt hanger below? Someday maybe, but this week it was more lighting for my cutting table! I am very happy to have the light. That little window just doesn’t help.
More light means better accuracy when I cut my fabric.
Trust me… this IS cleaned up!
Now that I am in a state of organized confusion I will get back to work. What am I working on?
- the quilt blocks on the process board
- an apron for Julie in Australia (mock ups also on the process board)
- and a rug out of THESE…
I found them in the laundry last weekend!
I wonder what he imagined I was gonna do with them?
What has kept you busy this month?

Now is found…
BAD DOG TUCKER, REALLY BAD DOG!!!
One large spool of Gutermann quilting thread found where else? Under the bed.
And we wonder why he always has such bad digestion.
Oh, but I love him anyway.
