Wow, working with life



I must say that I find it totally frustrating to be on a good motivating roll and you see ahead of you a wall.

A nice wall- holidays, special occasions.  A not so nice wall- life, health.  But a wall that stops the momentum and try as I can and  prepare as I can ... ???  :(

So I am getting back up to speed and leaping the low wall of a winter cold and I see a bend coming I know is another wall.  A Nice wall!  But...


The journal pages take a good day to get the backgrounds all done, not the couple of hours I've been figuring!  And that is just the backgrounds.


I'm back looking at what needs doing on the household front and darned if I didn't find some more UFO's when I considered my storage options!   I have 3 more sets of seasonal placemats somewhat organized. These winter ones need a quick and simple front!  hmm, maybe a disappearing nine patch made large and sliced in four!  I'd need only three big blocks and times four would give me my 12.  hmmmm?  Maybe some stack, slice, shift and sew!  :)


I knew my few applique tubs were lurking somewhere!  This hand applique project has nine blocks and I do believe I want to finish this.


In the mean time...

pant, pant!  I wonder what The Needle  & Thread Network gals are working on as they process life and its walls?

You are a DYNAMO, girl! Sorry about the cold. Take care of yourself and don't go falling off any of those walls, tripping over the low ones or running into the high ones. Remember Humpty Dumpty and respect the walls!! You are doing some really neat stuff here. Well done!

You merely need to enlist Spiderman to scale those walls for you...OR just borrow his cape. I see you completing sew many of your UFOs. That applique work is stunning. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

Perseverance is the key, dear gal! And I do hope your cold clears up without delay. Doesn't it know you have better things to do?! ;-)

Woo hoo, more wonderful WIPs! They do lurk in the darndest places, don't they? I hope those walls are easily hurdled, Ellen!

It's amazing what we find that we forgot. I really like that applique. You are so good! This will make a good sized quilt!
