snowmenand why i dont wait to buy patterns anymore

today i really do need to get a little house cleaning done and i have to get a workout in today the 4.5 mi.and allday at workk sunday really zapped my energy yesterday but i think after that ill get out a couple things i have had stuck back on my to do list ( for yrs)i got a hobbs batting the other day i didnt notice what a high loft it was so i thought i would just tie this quilt at the corners of the blocks i think it will be cute that way this was in fabric trends 2009 and i even bought fabric tucked it in a container all together
a couple goodies i got from primitive gatherings they are wool projects but i think they will be fine in cotton
i have learned if i see a pattern i better go aheas and get it after the last ordeal with the thimbleberries pattern i got off ebay its out of print i saw it at my quilters she was quilting it for someone it was so
cutewith the pumpkins and leaves she even did pillows
some purse pattersn and tote i found the other day the tote i got from hancock of padukah that is where i usually get batting

and the other day i did a few orphan blocks ditched the seams with clear thread to practice quilting on before i start the orphan summer quilti did it with my free motion foot on i think it was much faster and the clear thread was a little finicky but i played around with tension and ggot it real low i got it doneyou cant see if you ride up out ofhte seam if you get it right back it was great i also did the appliqui owl in invisible thread no more changing thread everytime for this girl
now i cant wait to sew binding on my peppermint quilt i played with all last year hoping you have a wonderful day
