Blogging lite

No time to blog these days; I'm a sewing fool counting the hours till we go back to school. I'm making Christmas gifts and learning to use a new machine. This quilt is made from scraps saved over the past eight years of quilting.

Cloudscome,

Your quilt looks lovely. I wish I had the patience to sew. My mother always sewed curtains, clothes for me and my sister, coats for my nieces when they were little, etc.

BTW, have you ever read the children's book THE SEASONS SEWN: A YEAR IN PATCHWORK, written by Ann Whitford Paul and illustrated by Michael McCurdy?

Enjoy the remains of your summer vacation!

Now I'm feeling guilty (and quilty) about all of my 100 Good Wishes fabric squares laying around!

Love your quilt, though. It looks lovely.

I'm impressed--with your foresight on getting an early start with Christmas gifts and your ability to make treasured gifts.

Your quilt is amazing, really colourful. I am impressed that you are making Christmas presents too. I have never managed to get into sewing but I admire those who do because the outcome is lovely.

Thanks everyone! I was feeling bad about everything I'm not doing. Then I realized how foolish that is. I am going to enjoy this instead.

Beautiful indeed. I also loved the one you made for your son's nursery school teacher.

My mother in law made a quilt using my daughter's own artwork, and gave it to her for her birthday. She saw it on the Sewing Channel, and went for it. What a treasure.
