it's already the 16th!

i dont know where the time goes...its been a while since i have posted.
life here has gotten away from me. i am seriously working on dd leahs friends wedding
siggy quilt...the peices are beginning to fill up te design wall. its a chinese coin. i hope jessica likes it when i am done. once i get all the peices cut and arranged the piecing should go fast.
this quilt is definately scrappy and out of my my stash. it does take time going thru all the scraps, but is working out. i am beginning to really like it!

i have the picture on its side and haven't quite
figured how to turn it at this point so please bear
with me...the grace ends should be on the bottom....

i have auntie grace just about ready to turn the quilt that is on it...its too big to not turn cause
i have a 9" harp on my brother...not quite a long arm should get that quilt turned tomarrow morning...

i also got the sisters choice top done, now to make the backing. there is always something
ready to do when you are a quilter!

seths quilt is finely done done!

done label and all! i really bogged down when it came to the label...just couldn't seem to get to it.

hope it doesn't take me that long to get it packaged and mailed. now i will concentrate on

getting the borders made and on my sisters choice quilt.

i have a X&O quilt on auntie grace, i had major problems with it this morning...what took me

about 15 min to put in took almost an hour to take out...i have recleaned the machine, changed

needles, adjusted tensions and walked away. if its not straightened out (i will try again later)

the machine goes for repair tomarrow. sure hope i got it right, i don't want to be machineless

for a week or more.

its a good thing that we decided nothing quilted was going to be made for Christmas!

some day

slowly but surely, dj is getting done. i hope to
get another block or 2 done within the next week or so...

i am ready to bind seths baby quilt, well about.
i still have to make the binding. i think its going to be cute. will post a picture when it is done.

i feel like i am gaining on my quilting. i am
putting a large 90 x 104 X and O quilt on
auntie grace, have the blue pinwheel ready and backing made. the ironing still doesn't look like
i have done any, it was a huge mountain but,
i know i have made progress.

life here goes on.
