Where Did the Week Go? Again???

I try to Blog a couple of times a week down from daily when I first started. But, honestly -- I haven't cooked all week either. Yes, I am married to a real keeper! I finished the binding on this quilt that I tried to get done before the end of the year so I would have used more fabric than acquired. I just got so tired of the darn binding I quit and didn't count it. Of course, I'll have a great start for 2010 with it!

So, what have I been doing with my free time? Not cleaning. Not laundry. Sewing and more sewing. One day we went to Scranton to get stuff. Another day I visited my friend Ruth and borrowed some of her pantographs. She's heading south for a couple of months so I didn't think she'd mind.
I finished the tote bag Kevin gave me on Tuesday afternoon. It's huge so will carry my stuff to Wednesday quilting quite nicely. It surprised me how easy it was. Thanks Kevin.

I spent Wednesday prepping another block for the A Tisket A Tasket hand applique. I now have 5 blocks completely done with embroidery. Seven to go. And, only one of them actually ready for me to hand stitch. I really need to focus on these blocks so they get done! I have at least 2 other unfinished applique projects. I'm not really good about finishing applique. I've added them to a list of UFO's I made up.

Thursday evening I prepped for the current Mysteries for Relay quilt. And then sewed most of Friday. Here are some of the pieces. I have NO idea where Marge is going with these units. I admit I got really tired of making half square triangles. After I post this I am going back up to work some more on it. I'd like to get the top finished this weekend. I do like the color combination -- won't "match" the house at all but I like it.

I'll try to be better about posting over the next few days. Honest. Really. Ok, so you don't believe me. Ragg's believes me. (what do you mean you don't believe Raggs!!)

Happy Quilting All! And, welcome to the new followers. I see I have some new folks keeping track.


  1. Your quilt is beautiful, Bonnie.

  2. That turned out beautifully!!! I am on pins and needles here waiting to see how the mystery turns out. I feel so left out, but I know it is for my own good!! I am doing the new Bunny Hill BOM. Are you?

  3. I love the quilt. The tote is great! You sure have been productive.


  4. Congrats on the big finish! It's a fabulous scrap quilt!
