February 2,2009

It is a beautiful day in East Texas. I was supposed to be planting strawberries today "about 1/2 an acre worth, but it rained hard last night and is quite cool this morning. So I guess I have another day before I have to get serious about that.
Yesterday I participated in a sew in with "Country Quilters USA" a yahoo group. I had the most fun. I worked on a UFO... A quilt of the month quilt my SIL bought a number of years ago. She started it, but had difficulty with it. I tried to show her the problems she was having but in the end, she did not want to finish it. I had to take 4 blocks apart and the others were still in the original package. It was fun to work on with friends making communication on the internet. I will post pictures of my work. Just as soon as I figure out how this works.
Time to move on to making a book bag for my Granddaughter.
Happy Quilting to all!


  1. Hey, there! So happy to see you've joined in the blogging fun. Don't worry. You'll have the hang of it in no time, and soon you'll be completely hooked! LoL

    Wasn't the sew-in fun? I have to tell you, I'm so in love with your sampler blocks. Every time I see them, I'm reminded of a quilt I made in 2007 as part of a Friendship Block swap. Here's a link to a picture in my webshots, if you'd like to take a look.

    I'm going over now to add your link to my blog list. Have fun, and happy blogging!

  2. I love this quilt, and I agree the sew-in was fun. I think we should do one every month...or maybe every Sunday for those who are home sewing. You will love blogging!
