Getting started . . .

It's 8:00 Friday night!  Time to start sewing.  I am in my jammies, and have cookies and cocoa ready to go.

A yummy smelling candle has been lit.  Phoebe is fired up and ready to sew.

And this  will be a quilt before I go to bed!

Stay tuned for further developments!

11:15 update:

Borders were added to the quilt, and it was carefully laid out and sandwiched. Two of my three little darlings kept me company while I worked.

Alas - someone forgot to buy quilting thread, so there is a mandatory trip to the quilt store tomorrow.  Darn. 

Since I couldn't finish this quilt, I made a couple of blocks for our past-president's quilt for our local guild.  She supplied the off-white fabric and asked for nine-patches in our choice of colors.

I'm not ready for bed yet, but my eyes are tired from sewing, so I think I'll crochet for awhile.  Di got me started on making baby caps, and I'm anxious to get a few done. 


  1. Love the colours in your wee quilt top. What a shame you HAVE to go to the quilt store. LOL
    Lovely blocks too.

  2. Leave to that "Di" to get others in trouble!!!
    but it is nice to sit and knit or crochet at times instead of working with "thread and a little needle"!!!!
    Hugs, Di

  3. A really interesting post. That little kitty is so cute.

  4. That is a lot to accomplish in one night. Love the butterfly fabric!

  5. Looks like you got a lot done! Too bad you have to go to the quilt store....I know I just DREAD those trips. LOL

  6. Wow you got that done in double quick time. It's a lovely colour.


You comments mean a lot to me. Thanks for stopping by.
