Waiting for her momma to return.

Cat on a quilt seems appropriate for my blog.

I'm going to demonstrate hand quilting at the National Museum of Women in the Arts tomorrow. (

Right now!

We apparently have about 10 inches of snow and there are no signs of it stopping.

My zone at the sew-in

How I spent my Sunday - sewing half square triangles!

I had most of the lines drawn on the pack of the lights. So i thought that I could get away without the line on a few - nope. Luckily I had my ruler & pencil so that I could draw those last few lines.

I'm not done sewing yet. I probably have enough light/darks for 2 quilts.

The warm/cool pile will be half square triangles too - eventually.

My two favorites together in 1 photo.
He has strep.
She doesn't like anyone but me, & recently prefers a box, & hates having her picture taken.

Luckily we did not lose power.

Alas, I'd rather be here than back at work...

Next cruise in 13 months, 12 days!

Next vacation in May - that's not too long to wait, right?

Slow Quilting

So I think that this year will be a slow quilting year.

By this, I mean that I hope to work on projects that take more time like hand quilting my string quilt. Hopefully I will use more of what I have & buy less too.

We'll see how it goes.

How about you?
