About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Where did the time go!?!

Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted since January!  Sorry - no pictures today.  I have a bunch to post - just don't have time in the evenings to post them.  Then when I'm on my lunch break I pop in to see who is doing what and thing I need to post my pictures!  I have pictures of some things I bought when my two friends and I went to Ault's and then an antique store back in early March.  I have pictures of my progress on the City Village quilt - I've finished 5 blocks and have 7 more to go.  After that I'll do the embroidery on them.  I have pictures of our adventure to Gathered Treasures - my purchases there.  I'm going to try to get those posted soon! 

Like many of you - life has just been a whirlwind for me.  I come home from work exhausted and after being on a computer all day I just don't want to be on one at night but if I'm going to post pictures I'm going to have to get on!  :)

Went to Tennessee to visit my dad and rest of my family.  This is my second week back at work and my desk looks like I've been gone for six months!  So much to do!  Ugh. 

Sadly I haven't been doing much hooking.  Between the quilt blocks and working on my brother's afghan I'm pretty busy.  My plan is to have the blocks finished by the end of May and I'd like the afghan finished by May 14 so I can send it to my brother for his birthday.  After the end of May - whether I've completed the blocks or not, I'll need to put them away to start working on my Christmas gifts.  They're stitchery items so I need to get started (I have 30 I need to do).  The good news is that they aren't detailed stitchery so they should go quickly.  Then I'll need to decide if I want to make pillows out of them or frame them or what! 

Have a great week!
