and I am a quilt hoarder!!!
there I have said it--
now I can go on and keep doing it--right????
I did realize over the week end that I do not like to give quilts away or sell them or even donate them any more!!!
I am not sure why????
but I think it is because I 'love' each one of them--
and that I know how much work and money and time went into each one!!!
Does this make any sense?????
Does this make me a self-ish person?????
OK--for those of you who are wondering why I call my sewing machine,
here she is--
When I ordered 'her' I had a choice of a pink or a blue topper--
and you all know that 'pink' is my first favorite of colors!!!
all that blue painters tape is to mark a true quilter's quarter inch seam!!
I do not understand the sewing machine people and why they do not have this marking already as a feature on the machines--but they don't--I think it is because they want us to buy the 'extra' foot for that!!!!!
and yes the next time I go shopping I will look for 'pink' painting tape!!!!!
I did do as planned for this week end--
and here is a pile of 10 projects that are all ready to be put together into quilt tops, wall hanging, or whatever--
So you know what I will be working on this week????
and the 'horrid' part is --
I have a list that grows daily as I remember new things--
of unfinished parts of projects--the total now is up to 15 and counting!!!!
and I am not counting the bom's or sal that I am doing for this year--
these others are from before 2012--some only have a block done, some only need a block or two to be ready to be made into tops!!!
It was nearly 70 degrees out today here--
but the air had a slight 'chill' to it--
but I did go for a walk--
here's some photo's--
the first one is of my flower bed outside here--
the tulips are popping up--
and then I went down by the lake--
look at that blue sky and that blue water--
it was so pretty down there today--
this is the hill going up the east side of the lake from here--
can you see how clear and clean the water is today--
but once they start putting the boats in the docks this will change!!!!
and look at this pair--
this little pair of birds where else where on my walk--
I could of reached out and touched them--
they just sat right there and posed for me the whole time--
thank you birdies!!!!
I did get the counted cross stitch piece done today--
I am putting this in a black wood frame!!!
the next on the list for this craft is two small Christmas ornaments--
then I will happily be into 'bunnies'!!!!!
Well--be good everyone and be sure to put a couple stitches into something tomorrow/today!!!!
Hugs,Di and Miss Gracie
