Hello there ... do you remember me?

Wow, it's been a while. So much has occurred since my last post.  It's been a busy couple of months.

My churn dash sew-a-long is going. All of my fabrics are cut!

Everything is set up by the machine, background matched, ready for me to tackle it.

I try to find little pockets of sewing time when ever I can in between my busy schedule. They are rare these days.

When I do find a little pocket, the next thing I know, my pile of blocks higher.

I do like the scrapiness of it. Although I cut over 50 blocks for this quilt, it didn't seem to make much of a dent in my fabric craps. I'm starting to think it reproduces when I'm not looking! Oh well!

Thanks for stopping by. Cheers!

To frog or not to frog that is the question ...

 I started a new, what I call, mindless, knitting project ... another Hap. The pattern is by Kate Davies Designs and is called Dunyvaig. It's a gorgeous design and I was able to use some left over yarn from a prior project. Bonus!

I'm knitting along, enjoying the mindless process, thinking, "I should blog about this" ... take a picture of my progress.

OMG, don't I see a mistake! 

Do I frog it or do I let it be? It's really all about whether you can live with the mistake. Oh, but it's so far down .... Sigh!

The challenging part in this pattern, if you want to call it that, is when working on the Wrong Side (WS) ... Knit becomes Purl and Purl becomes Knit. If you're not paying attention ... well, mistakes happen. Can you spot the mistake? 

Let me help you ...

I knit when I should have purled. And for the record, I decided to frog it. Rippit!

I've since caught up and went beyond! So far, no mistake ... I think! lol
I still have quite a ways to go. It will be perfect for those cold winter days!

Thanks for stopping by. Catch you all later! Cheers!

Summer days and the Churn Dash SAL

 Wow, July has blown by ... I've been busy enjoy the summer. We've had some wonderful weather ... a tad hot but still wonderful. 

I finally cleaned the dumping ground clutter on my cutting table. Somehow, I always managed to put something on it ... creating more clutter.

Time to get to work! I cut the last 10 fabrics I needed to complete the required number of blocks for my quilt. You know ... I looked at the scrap bins and it sure doesn't look like I made a dent in them. Sigh!

Now, it's piecing time .... Yes ... I powered my machine and got to work. Voila! First set of blocks done! I'm a tad late to the game but ... I'm getting there.

Thanks for dropping by ... Hope you are enjoy the season! Catch you all later. Cheers!

It's been a challenging couple of weeks. I apologize for not replying to your emails and comments. I do want to thank all that sent their heartfelt thoughts regarding Stella. I miss her so much. She was such a huge part of my life. The house feels empty. Sigh!

I have not been quilting ... haven't even given it a thought. When things are challenging, one of my methods of coping is ... cleaning/purging. And purging I have been. I have so much stuff! I don't think I'll live that long to use it all. Off it goes.

If I want to get back to the S.A.L. I do need to clean my cutting table. It has become a dumpling ground.

I guess now it's not about purging but cleaning up the dumping station! 

Off to get some tidying up done so that I can get motivated to work on the Churn Dash blocks. I still have ten (10) prints to cut up and then it's piecing time!

Cheers   !
