Foot Doctor

Ok now I have no excuses. There will be no operating on this old chick!!!! So it's back to sewing. I have to get a lot done because Quilt Festival is in April and then Jim and I are going to THE Pentagon. We'll stop at my mom and dads for a couple of days and then it's off to see Washington. Today I did an interview with Chicago Parenting Mag. about Quilts for wounded warriors, I hope it brings a lot of press to the cause. I guess we better get to getting on some quilts to take with us, we will be presenting them on April 24 th. in the court yard of the Pentagon. Maybe the bean counter[Jim] will buy a new car by then so we have room for everything. Tonight is Stitchers Circle at The Quilt Merchant hope I can behave. Ha Ha!!!

to busy to sew

Does everyone have this much trouble finding time to sew. My plans to get a block done everyday seems to have gone out the window. I guess I need Stella to challange me to get going. Now I know why retreats are so popular. I could use some time away to sew with others, I'm thinking that would push me.Maybe when I go to the foot Dr. tomorrow I'll get that time the hard way. Eliza was in the store a lot this week so I got a lot of love'n in this week!!!! I never get tired of haveing grandchildren, wich is a good thing since I'm going to have number 12.

A stitch in time

Getting back to quilting is harder than I thought!!!! I'm working on Civil War Love Letters and have twelve blocks done.Then I decided it's so much fun I'll jump in and do some of the Basket blocks the Jo's Little Women Club at the store are exchanging- OK still not enough I think I'll do the next block of the Saturday Sampler.Now I need a twelve step program. Well maybe I could do one block a month and put it away for new grand baby #11 Eliza. See what I mean, I need help!!!! I have a few people to blame for my return to quilting, they will pay, I mean help. I spent a few days with Jo Morton and some wonderful shop owners, and I have some wonderful instructors at The Quilt Merchant that are always pushing me to take the time. Now I need more time.
