A Day in the Life


Here's where each morning begins. The day before I have laid out the pieces for an Appalachian Autumn leaf and four little bowtie blocks. Yes, I added a leaf into the mix for my morning piecing - I can put together one leaf and four bowtie in about 30 minutes if the pieces are already laid out. Can you tell I was an Engineer - haha! Yes, I try my best to be efficient.

Sew, sew, sew. There we go! Starting the day off accomplishing something. And as soon as I finish this, I lay out the pieces for the next day.

I now have 8 leaf blocks complete and 3/4 of another LARGE bowtie block unit. Progress! Only 8 more leaf blocks to go (and lots of half square triangles for the border).

I get this 30 minutes of machine sewing done before Sadie arrives. While she is here, I do a bit of hand sewing here and there. But I love spending loads of time with her. Today Hubby and I took her on a long walk (though she slept through most of it).

And look! I finally finished my first full block of my Edyta Sitar quilt! Big hurray! Only 14 more to go (ugh!) and lots of half blocks. This quilt will take  a few years for sure.

Today I had some extra time so I cut strips for the next large star block, along with the pieces for the small stars around it. Again, progress!

AND, I'm working on curved hexies on a daily basis. This quilt top is coming together! And I'm really excited about how it's turning out. Yay!

Stay safe!

    this BLANK ATM CARD when I was searching for job online about a month 
    ago It has really changed my life for good and now I can say I'm rich and 
    I can never be poor again. The least money I get in a day with it is about

  3. It's fantastic that you develop such topics because there are many instances where you can't locate relevant information on the Internet and must rely on forums. I'm Noah, and I'm in the business of providing logo design services. It's very easy and small business.

  4. I appreciate the efforts of technical supporters who are available 24/7 for others so that no one can get into a problem. I communicate with ecommerce website design company and they are so nice in helping people to


  5. Some websites really need to do something about their ranking. There are a lot of websites that offer amazing content but sometimes that content does not reach people. I was searching for Professional web design service company and I found a lot of websites on the first page, TBH their topics were so cliché and repetitive. I kept moving to further pages and I found some really good websites that were offering good content with different topics.
