dog tired.........or is that cat tired?

I have been cleaning out again
organizing things as I find them
so that when I have the urge to sew
I can grab and go

Dunkin got tired waiting for me I guess
so tired he was sleeping in my coffee! LOL

silly nut!

I have been looking for these
if memory serves me right I should have a box
of about 20 cut and sewn ready to put together with zippers
I think the zippers were already coordinated and pinned on
gotta dig a little deeper I guess

so then I wanted to look for my 365 circle project
I think mine will become half a year
and call it done
IF I can find it.....LOL
so...........moving on.........

I went looking for this
you followers remember back in 1842 when I started
this one right? a challenge to take a UFO block
and each time the row had a purpose
make a border
use triangles
use a color not used in the block
well this is where she stalled.........
and I dont know WHY
because I LOVE it
loving that border of 9patch
maybe I didnt have enough to keep making?
gotta find it and get er done
I am thinking after that border it should be almost a good lap 
size quilt

so then I FOUND these
this was 2 blocks from a day of play
took charms in purple and pink
and bordered them in 2 1/2 strips
easy peasy
I am thinking I was gonna make a girl 
small quilt
but not sure
I should finish it up and make for my 
I think she loves those colors
dont all little girls?
I certainly have lots of pink and purples
now that that is organized so I should get crackin!

I also found this
just need to add the two borders and quilt er up
another one to finish up quick

this one is put away to quilt.........
was a jelly roll race to see if I could do it
had an old jelly roll and just played one day
one day sewed them end to end
the next before work I sewed them up
wish I had seen the one where you add the little blocks 
of color to seperate them out
before I made it
but I still like it

did all this in my sewing pjs LOL

found this guy too 
ready to back and quilt
seems like lots of the tops need backings
maybe I should be doing scrappy backs huh?

and of course not finding what I was looking for........
I had to watch my mouth!
those bad words came out of nowhere
not much done but both Dunks and I am tired
MAYBE soon I can get more room in this
sewing room so I can breathe and get things done!


  1. Lots of project possibilities there to pull out and work on.

  2. Boy you have some really neat projects going on there...I have begun hand quilting Dresdens--uuhhh an AWFUL lot of seams to be quilted...may switch over to machine instead--blistered thumb already!! Like dunkin, I am tired just thinkin about it...hugs, Julierose

  3. what are you using the dress in, or is it a t-shirt?
