Ti-i-i-ime is not on my side...

OK, girls, beat me now and get it over with, I am not a good blogger, I have missed you all, and do I get an extra 100 points for blogging BEFORE I read my 212 e-mails???

I have finished the benefit quilt, (good thing, since it is only a week away) it is all quilted, washed and we are guarding it from dog hair the best we can!!

The girls have been here a lot, and entertaining them has been a treat. We painted, cut, stitched, and colored. We found the perfect letters at a yard sale, an E for Elly...and an L for Liberty, they must have known I was coming??? could it be more perfect??? And after school started, Papa and Granny had some wonderful free time up at our trailer. (sigh) it is sooo peaceful up there.

On Finn's blog, I pledged to finish 5 projects by the end of the year, EEEEK!!

I have the Benefit (leaders and enders, which is DONE!!!) the African Star, (which is still in strips) the yellow wondow pane (which needs to be taken apart and re-aligned) the Project Linus, (Liberty and I are working on, and she is THRILLED) and I have a Marine Corps one to do for Mr. Wonderful, (just a lap quilt, I cheated and bought some panels)

The only problem is,,,I have been stitching more than I have been quilting, so I better "get to gettin" here because time slips by fast in this house!

hope you all are passing time happily

the benefit quilt looks great....and spending time with the girls would have been just fantastic! My first week off work has just flown by so I hope it goes a bit slower in the second week...I have just organised a visit to a quilt shop on Tuesday afternoon with a girlfriend so I am looking forward to that.....but lots of projects await in the sewing room....better be gettin' in there soon...!!

That quilt is gorgeous - I love those colours together, and the green border is perfect.
The letters were a great find, I bet the girls loved decorating them.

Your quilt is beautiful. This is my first visit and I took my time. I love the fabric, the handbags, and your beautiful grandchildren.

You rascal, I'll except your good reasons for not blogging, but just this once!!
The benefit quilt is wonderful! I absolutely LOVE it...perfect I think!
And not to worry, I'm sure you projects will find their way to completion over the next 4 months. We'll all rooting for you, and for us, as well. It's just great to get the mo-jo flowing again. Happy autumn days my friend, Big hugs, Finn
