Sad Realization

I had a sad age related realization last night.  I sat down to sew a label on a baby quilt and couldn't see to thread the needle.  Turning up the light didn't help, moving the needle closer to my face didn't help. 

I finally had to break down and put the reading glasses on order to see the thread and eye of the needle. 

Aging isn't all that it's cracked up to be.  But according to my Dad, it's better than the alternative.

Have a great day!!

Flimsy and Another Start

Since it seems that I need to have a million projects all going at the same time, I started another.

Jenny over at Sew Kind of Wonderful is doing a QAL using her Quick Curve Ruler.  The blocks looked fun and I have PLENTY of fabric to cut up.

Here are my blocks so far.  I'm using Lark from Amy Butler.  The colors are really bright, so it's making it a lot of to work on the blocks.

I was able to take some time off work this week with the holiday, so I was able to finish up some projects that I had started.

This is Urban Birthday, also from Sew Kind of Wonderful.  The curves are really gentle, so it makes the piecing a lot of fun.  No pinning needed.  I always swore I would never do curves, but not anymore.

Urban Birthday

The fabric is a line called Urban Angel. I bought enough to make about 3 quilt tops.  This is my 2nd one.  The grey is a Kona cotton.  Who knows when I will get this one quilted. For now it will just hang nicely folded in my quilt closet. 

Have a great day!

Too Many Projects

I really wish I could focus.  Unfortunately when it comes to quilting, I truly have ADD.  There are 3 projects that I'm working on now.  1 that I just finished (thankfully) and another I'm going to start.

This is the quilt I just finished. One of the ladies I work with wanted a quilt for a new grand baby. Thankfully I had some finished tops in my closet. I'm going to put a label with all the important information once the baby arrives.



I decided to do a quilt along. I don't normally do them because of my ADD. But I love my quick curve ruler, so I'm going to participate in this one. Check out Jenny's blog for this Medallion Quilt-A-Long.  This is my fabric that I plan to use.  Who knows it could change along the way.


Hopefully the holiday will allow me some time to sew.

Have a great 4th of July!
