Long Time, No Blog

I was not so gently reminded last night that it has been over a month since I have updated this blog. Shame on me! I spent 3 weeks being sick with the cold/flu, going to work everyday and coming home and basically doing nothing. It was a chore just to find my pjs and pillow. I started feeling good again last week, went to the gym a couple of days and now I feel puny again. Did the gym do that to me!!! I think not! Will this ever go away??? OK, Pity Party is over.

I have been working on some ufo quilts. One is an angel quilt for my youngest daughter. I quilted it a couple of years ago, but I just wasn't happy with it. I frog stitched quite a bit, loaded it back onto the machine and finished quilting it. It now is waiting for the binding. I also took 9 blocks and made a lap quilt. I quilted it with some free motion work. Boy oh boy do I need to practice that. Some of it looks pretty darn good. Some of it looks not so great. But I will go ahead and put binding on it and call it happy.

Stay tuned for the next blog on how not to get your quiting machine unjammed. I always have to learn things the hard way. This was no exception. Until next time........

I hope you are happy now Sister Sue!
