Working Away

I have been dithering and dithering about what project to work on next. Had too many options, couldn't make up my mind. You've heard this from me before - unfortunately I get this way sometimes. I finally changed gears and sewed something fun and wild. I'm working on instructions and ya'll will get a chance to play too. Not getting any more hints than that for now.


The winners of the L-O-V-E blocks are Knit One Quilt Too Kristin, Threadlines KathieB, and SewPrimitive Karen. Sorry, I'd put the links to their blog but the internet is running sloooowly. At least it's functioning at the moment - that's only temporary I'm sure. Lately I can only count on a couple of hours of internet really early in the morning - before I am yet functional.

I'm almost finished with the hand quilting on Orphan Train - just a couple more days!

Tomorrow, fingers crossed, one of my favorite quilt bloggers is taking a break from her Paris trip to come visit me and my quilts. woohoo.

Yay, I'm so happy to have won one of the L-O-V-E block sets! Sorry to hear you are having such slow-or-no internet, that is no fun. Have fun with your visitor today! Oh, and your patriotic quilts are wonderful and as always, I adore seeing your Baptist Fans quilting.

Wait, you're changing gears to work on something fun and wild? I thought your normal mode was fun and wild!

I'm looking forward to seeing it for sure.

Enjoy your blogger visit. I'm afraid I don't think I'm going to make it to Paris in the near future ;-(

Fell a bit bored myself. I'm trying to finish 5 projects by the end of the month, and I'm so fed up with finishing off. Hurry up and unveil your project - it sounds just what I need. (Shame I didn't win the blocks, but then, if there's no lime green.....!)

I just love coming to your blog and seeing all the colors that you use in your quilts. And Lily always mkes everything look so inviting! I have to get out some of my colors and see what I can do ala Tonya.

What a tease you are! Mention a new idea/project and then leave us all hanging for a few days! That's just mean. *grin* I can't wait to see what you think is wild and fun!
Your kitty has the most incredible green eyes - so pretty! And your blocks are like candy!
Hope you and your visitor had a blast.
