I've been sewing!

It's been awhile  but I have played with my sewing machine this week.  I was able to get a UFO into a top.  Now to look for background fabric.

4.  Sweet Baby Jane
5.  Teal mystery
6.  My Favorite Things

Random thoughts for the evening

Yesterday we were so happy to have the horticultural debris from Hurricane Irma picked up....finally no more looking at that everyday.

So we fall back tonight, my body has been doing that all week with my sleep schedule, it thought that it was time last week!  LOL

I've been on the computer looking at different projects that I would love to start and think oh wait I need to do this or that for Christmas presents and so I save the ideas for another time.  I've been in a funk for quilting again and am slowly coming out of it.  I have six Christmas stockings that I need to embroider name tags for this week,  also make some burp cloths.  Really need to make a list and focus or I'll never accomplish what I need to by Christmas.

Hard to believe July is almost over

Where has the time gone?  It seems like yesterday and it was still June.  My time away in June was fantastic, great catching up with some family and going to a Quilt Retreat is always fun!  Spent a day or two in Paducah, KY doing some shopping and seeing some sights.  After retreat my Aunt Becky, Leslie and I stopped for 2 nights in Shipshewana, IN.  Really a neat place, did a bunch of shopping!  Want to take Jim there sometime.  I'm making progress on getting the sewing room usable again.  I picked up this chest last week and am slowly filling it up!

It's a beautiful day

here in Pennsylvania.  I'm enjoying my time at Jack and Becky's.  Yesterday was a Pittsburgh kind of day.....met Becky's Son Bob and his family had a nice time at Station Square/Bessemer Court.  Tomorrow Becky, Leslie and I are starting our road trip to a Quilt Retreat.  Really looking forward to that and seeing everyone again!  We are gonna stop in Paducah, KY for a couple nights and do some things there.

First UFO that I will finish

This little table topper was made by my late Aunt Phyllis. Just need to hand stitch the binding down.
