finally moved!

Finally moved all the way into my new house.  Now for the unpacking and rearranging the house 467 times a day to get it just perfect. I have projects calling my name and I can't wait to get started.  Happy sewing!

Hold Please.

everything is on hold while I pack and move.  i have 3 blankets I need to finish ASAP and no time to work on them.  One needs to be quilted and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get my machine to quilt.  It really sucks because the fabric combo is really pretty and it's for charity.  and can someone tell me how to get a super hyper almost 3 year old to sit still so i can pack?

so stuck right now.  my machine isn't cooperating and neither is my inspiration.  I have so much to finish and feel like I'll never get it done.

house hunting has taken over my life.  I can't sew or cook or anything in fear I will miss the perfect house.  I sit in front of the computer and refresh every few minutes to make sure I will be the first one calling about a house that pops up. I hate it.

I finished the squares the other day for the little girls puppy quilt and they don't fit the size I wanted so I have to piece black strips in between some blocks to make it work.  I really hope she likes it. I like it more now that I have the squares all sewn together.

the charity quilt is a complete flop.  the packing slip indicates it's missing the border strips. I'll wait for the director of the program to contact me to let me know how to proceed.

been in bed feeling sick all day so no progress on anything else. I'm hoping to "upgrade" this blog with photos and stuff in the next week or so.

I sewed a few of the blocks together and still don't love it.  I think I'll take it apart and try and find another way to do it.  I can't add fabric to what I have so I have to find a way to make it work.  

today I need to start on the charity quilt and wash the fabric for my moms so I can get started on it too.  I wish I had a magic cutter that just cut the fabric how it needed to be cut (magically, how it would best be displayed) if I just thought about it. deciding on a pattern and then cutting the fabric is my least favorite part of the process.
