What have I been doing???

Do you ever find yourself completely overwhelmed with all the fabics, books and patterns to the extent that you become immobilized? That happens to me a LOT, I'm reluctant to admit.

This week I found myself sitting in my newly cleaned up sewing room and couldn't decide what to work on.  I had been reading a blog by Cheri with instructions to make a little doll-type quilt and it seemed to be exactly what I needed.  It didn't take very long nor did it use up much fabric but I had fun.

AND tomorrow will be another BONUS block for you, so keep watching!!!

What are you working on? I know you have already finished your sow-a-long blocks from April 4th and have to wait until the 18th for the next 3...

Oh, how could I forget? We spent the weekend with our darling grandson Ryan and he was helping my daughter make brownies. Is there anything as adorable as licking the beater??

Hope you have a great Wednesday.
Love to you all,


  1. Just got caught up on the Sow Along. Whew! I am using civil war reproduction fabrics for mine. Looking forward to the bonus block.

  2. I have lots of church scraps so I am piecing them together, I have been wanting to do this for a long time. My next projects are to do pillows from embroidery pieces (orphans) for the nursing home. WOCS is the charity.

  3. I guess great minds think alike...I thought this was my quilt when I first saw it.
    So you know I like it.
    Still working on my sow along.

  4. Oh your little grandson is such a sweetie!
    I'm green with envy.

    Happy Sewing

  5. That is a sweet little quilt! I clicked the link and browsed Cheri's blog. How fun that she does a little monthly sew-along and then gives the little quilt away. Sooo tempting, but I do not need another little project every month. But oh, how cute and fun! (Can you tell I am trying to talk myself out of the desire to play along?)
    I still need to catch up on my set of Christmas fabric Sow-Along blocks! And I'm trying to finish off those many little basket projects I started, while starting some new gift projects. And I'm actually machine quilting some little things to improve my skills. Do I need another little monthly SAL? NO! But I love those little quilts! *LOL*

  6. What a sweet little quilt...I love licking beaters too!!

  7. Licking the beaters is always better than the cake!

    Your little quilt is adorable.

  8. Cute little quilt! Even cuter little boy. :)
    The beaters are the best. My DD still loves to lick them at 24years old.

  9. I know what you mean about being overwhelmed! Sometimes, I wonder why I am doing this, but then I go and start something else. Recently, I just got tired of the projects I have been working on, so I pulled out some blocks I have made and started sewing them together (Scrappity-Do-Dah). Actually, I needed something mindless to do. So I worked on that for a while and then back to the big projects. I'm going to post the big project (king size quilt) and the Scrappity-Do-Dah quilt maybe today. Your GS is adorable!

  10. i so love the little quilt with the black and your king size quilt is stunning, i couldn't even imagine accomplishing such a task, will be so nice to snuggle under......

  11. Oh I just love your little quilt. Adorable!

  12. Ryan looks happy with that beater!!!
