Silent Sunday: things I no longer love to do

What a busy month!

Wondering where I was?  Well, I wasn’t here…

 

But let me back up.  First I want to tell you about my friend Kate Chiconi in Australia who assembles donated quilt blocks into quilts for Ovarian cancer.  She sets the theme, all based on a teal colorway and then sews them up, quilts them, and donates them for auction!  The latest quilt is called “Signed, Tealed, and Delivered.”  My donation was featured HERE.  Go visit Kate at Tall Tales from Chiconia She is a fabulous quilter and you won’t be disappointed.

I had chosen to participate and mailed these to her for inclusion…

(I have no clue why these did not display when I posted this!)

This was an enjoyable paper pieced project for me!   I received notification of their arrival on the day I got back.

Back from where?

I went on an over 2,000 mile (including side trips) excursion through 5 states!  Yes, me…

The ex agoraphobic!

And you can call me Han, as in SOLO!

Because, yes, I traveled alone on this two-week trip.  I am so proud of this breakthrough.  I am owning the saying “Go big or go home!”  I went BIG, came home and it was exciting!

I will be posting a few pictures and telling more about my trip over the next week.  But I wanted you to know how excited I am about these blocks and my road trip.

Posting soon with more…

Vintage beauty is never out of style

Going to see a man about this vintage Singer Phoenix

She appears to be a beauty in the rough and waiting for some TLC.

There also seems to be very little rust!  This could be the one…

See you with details tomorrow if she comes home with me

Think Happy Thoughts!

Process Pledge: the gift

Keeping busy!

Still working on the coat muslin but taking a break to get back on that gift for my Sister-in-law.  It is taking an age because I have to work under this…

the-gift

I do it because if I don’t my eyes go fuzzy in the middle of my vision and then I can’t see much at all for an hour.  So as it goes, I work for an hour (the most I can do even with the ring light) and then go on to something that doesn’t require fine vision.  It’s doable and I still get to have fun working!

❤ ❤ ❤ I will get this done Kathee!  ❤ ❤ ❤

What?  You want to see more?  Sorry, gonna have to wait till it’s done and received on the other end.   Don’t want to give it all away too soon.  😉
