Quilting, stitching, crocheting

It has been so long...

I have had nonstop company since May.  People coming and going from all over the place.  All people I love seeing and whose company I enjoy, but it is time for a break ..... please!

One visitor was a friend I call my "forever friend" because we have been friends for over 30 years which I find amazing considering how much I moved around over these 30 years.  She has ended up iliving in a place that I grew up in ... Syracuse, NY.   And I have ended up living in her hometown ... San Diego, CA.  I KNOW I got the better deal !

While she was here, I helped her make a quilt top for her bed at home.  She kept saying she was going to take it home to quilt.  I knew I could not do it for her.  After some honest soul searching, she admitted she would never quilt it.  So I finished it into a duvet cover for her with matching shams.  It is lovely!

Despite all my visitors and working at my day-job I stayed true to my comittment to sew.  I did a little here and a little there.  I got the top to my DGD's Pinwheel Party cuddle-quilt finished .... even adding about 10 or 12 extra blocks so it would be the right size for her AND I started my DD1's minkee quilt.  I must have been insane the day I committed myself to that project .... that fabric is hard to work with !!

I promise to post pictures this weekend, but I wanted to pop in and say hello so I can comfortably visit all your blogs and leave a greeting.  Later .......

  1. Good to see you posting again, but I miss some photos of what you are making. :) Yes, sometimes we get busy with other things than sewing. I'm sure you had a great time together with your dear friend! I know the distance between NY and CA... How nice of you to help her making a quilt! I'd like to make a quilt for my friend too, but first I need to get some nice fabric with sheep... she collects everything sheep... lol.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
