october 19th

Yup its me again" I knowwwwwwwww its been forever since I have posted. But to be totally honest my life has been a roller coaster lately. Between hubby getting stung by a bee and winding up in the hospital then comming down with pnemonia . Have also had a visit from my stepdaughter Kellie and it seems like every time I turn around something else comes up. I don't know who ever said that once you retirid life was slow" But they were wrong. I am not retirid yet but hubby is and believe me between doctor visits and picking up perscriptions he could stay busy 24 hours a day. I am actually hoping to get some time to rest or sew or whatever I want too tomorrow after I get home from work. Hubby has to go for a voting class. He is one of those who works at the election booths and each year they have to go take a new class.
Now even though I haven't posted I have actually been busy with different projects. I am beginning to think that I have a compulsive quilting disorder. I can't stop with just one project! I am never happy unless I have ten going on at one time. To be quite honest I get bored to tears with only one project. Now I know I would be much more likely to finish if I would stick with one but I just can't do it. The minute I see something new that I want to try I am off in another direction. Right now I am working on a square in a square quilt for my daughter which you have already seen pics posted. Also an afghan for our living room which have also been posted. You are saying hmmmmmmmm thats not so bad. wellllllllll I am also working on a bowtie quilt , two embroideries, a grandmothers flower garden and have just recently started putting nine patch blocks together.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh I also won some fabric from Ellies blog sorry I don't have the addy handy but it is a german blog and a very nice lady. she wanted suggestions on how to find time to sew when you were always busy and I came up with about eleven or twelve idea's all of which were put in a jar and her son or grandson drew my name. yesssssssssssss!

We just got home from some shopping at the base and since halloween is comming up we bought some candy. Now we live out in the middle of nowhere so we don't have any tricker treaters other then the great grandsons so I found these cute little buckets and will put some candy in them. Hopefully will remember to snap a picture of them to post later.

Ooops almost forgot one more project" This is going to be a small wall quilt to go in my daughters kitchen to cover her fuse box. O.k...... I seem to be making myself tirid looking at all these different projects so I think its a good time to close. take care untill next time!

Seeing your bowties brought back memories. I made a king size scrappy bowtie quilt and hand quilted the whole thing. Took me 3 years!!! I named it : "If I ever see another bowtie...." LOL.
