And On the 7th Day.....

Kathy took a break.  😴

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Today was Day 7 of a run of regular shifts, double shifts, and weekend over time shifts.  Working seven days straight is not as easy as it used to be 20 years ago.

Late last week my Cat Silhouette Quilt Kit arrived from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.  When I placed my first order the shop was already sold out of it.  I was a bit worried that I would not be able to get this quilt kit so when I was notified it was back in stock I MADE sure my order was placed.

Being so exhausted I did not open the package until this evening.  Here is cat giving approval (I believe) to this future quilt:

Now, to spend a wee bit of time with my knitting and get some sleep.  Tomorrow is the official start of Kathy's Spring Break ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Clucking Along...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Not a lot of quilting over the last few days as super busy with life; work, kiddo to school, homework, piano lessons, house work, laundry, garbage and recycling take out, walking the know....

Today was my one day a week off and it was PACKED.  I stopped at Cobs bakery after dropping my son off at school to pick up some cinnamon bread, scones, sour dough flax bread and of course Cranberry Orange Hot Cross Buns.  

Then it was off to Duchesss Bakery to pick up a Banana Cream Pie for Pi Day:

If you are wondering.....Yes, it was DELICIOUS ☺

Then it was off to GO Group.  The Quilt Guild I belong to has a group of quilters all who own GO! Cutters.  They meet to share dies and ideas.  

I purchased one of these for myself as a Christmas present and today I was finally able to attend GO Group.  I learned several new things from the ladies who have owned these for a while and am glad I went because this evening I did this:


I will be adding a border and it will become a table runner.

I am so excited that I finally used my GO! Cutter.  It was FUN.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

"Sew" Excited.....

Good Evening Internet Friends....

Okay,  should probably be asleep, but I REALLY wanted to finish this tonight:

The centre rings of the quilt top are all sewed together and I even top stitched 1/8" all the way around so that there is no stretching between now and when I get the flying geese and applique borders on.

Seriously....."Sew" Excited ☺♫

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Half Way...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Class Day at Sew Divine for my Flowers for My Wedding Ring Quilt.  I am so happy with this quilt and pattern at this time.  Although it looks so complicated all of the pattern pieces are perfect and they fit together perfectly!  Even the bias border pieces are not stretched or haphazard!  

Hopefully I can get this part of the quilt top completed tomorrow.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

"Sew" Close....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

"Sew" it is less than 12 hours til I have to be in attendance at my Flowers for My Wedding Ring class at Sew Divine and I have managed to complete 48/49 of the blocks needed:

Not sure if I should push myself to get the last block made this evening or just get up early tomorrow morning.

Hmmm.....who I am kidding????  I better go do it now as getting up in the morning early to sew is not how I roll.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

The right pink skein is the Valentine's Day Yarn Pack along with a moisturizer and a needle keeper.

Next to arrive was my order for some fabric I decided that I must have:

"Sew" Excited to get started on all of these projects.
