Downton Abbey?

Not a whole lot of progress made on my friend’s mother’s quilt… I did get one row ripped off the length to use on the backing but that’s about it. The top was pieced using over-lock stitching so I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to get that row off but it took less than 10 minutes!

After that I had a squirrel moment and decided I *must* make some bowl cozies, LOL! I pulled out a layer cake of Alison Glass fabrics I’ve been saving (for what? who knows!) and made these beauties!

And just for more eye candy… look at these gorgeous fabrics I got from last week when they had an end-of-bolt sale!! This is 10 yards of fabric for just over $45 😮


I’m hitting the road in a few hours heading to Atlanta… not for the World Series, no! For the Downton Abbey exhibit – squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Me & my friend Mary planned to go early last year when it was at the Biltmore in Asheville but sadly covid cancelled the exhibit. As soon as we heard it was reopening in Atlanta we made our plans! We’ll be back on Tues so it’s just a short trip but I’m looking forward to the get-a-way.


That’s about all for now… have a great rest of your weekend

Procrastination sucks!

I haven’t been as productive as I would’ve liked but hey I’m the only one preventing that! Ugh, I’ve got a bad case of ‘procrastination’ and I can’t seem to shake it. I’ve had ample opportunity this week to sew but instead I’ve planted my arse on the couch watching TV and surfing my phone – argh!!! WTH?

I did get a few things accomplished before being a couch potato took over…

I’m up to 18 Stoplight blocks for my Scrapattack2018 February challenge…these come together really quickly once all the pieces are cut. I planned to cut a bunch more this week…but ahem…I didn’t 😦  I want to make a throw size quilt so I need 52 more 😮  Geez, how long will it take ME to complete that!??


I also wanted to make a bowl cozie for me to keep…and I finally did!! I’ve been hoarding these FQ fabrics for a couple of years waiting for the right project and finally I used them! I’ve used this cozie many times already 😀


Lastly, I started piecing the t-shirts for the commission quilt…I really, REALLY should be done with this already…argh!


OK, I’ll stop beating myself up now…I can only hope next week will be better 😉
