Rough Week


I am trying to be better at blogging. :)...Really. This week was a hard one...A lot of personal stuff. Quite a few of you know I lost my dad 3 years ago. Well with that comes the worry of taking care of mom..She is a priority now and some days the worry is a lot...But I have big shoulders and I can take it. She is my mom after all :)....

I do have a big announcement though..Something I cant announce for a few more days..At least until after Monday..Its something that is weighing on my mind but also something that will be good for us... So as soon as I can I will let you know....In the meantime a friend sent me this...<3 p="">









Oh so very true dont you think? :)..I spent today after running in my quilt studio..Wow I have forgotten how therapeutic that is.I wish that I could get into there more..Its been so cold this year that I havent been able to stay in the basement for very long..The floor is too cold. I am hoping tomorrow after I run to spend a few more hours lost in fabric....No matter how much I love the bling it will always be my first love....But for now I think I need to give the boss some attention..THis is what she is telling me..She isnt one to beat around the bush..When she wants attention she just lays on the keyboard..Lol

2014 Goals

Can you believe we are already looking at the close of another year? WOW....I cant say that I have done as much quilting as I wanted this last year. But I can say that I filled the year up with MANY things. There are so many things that make me happy now that I have such a hard time getting it all done. But quilting will always be my first love...

A friend forwarded me these two pictures..I do not know where they came from and I want to make it clear they are not my quilts..But aren't the FABULOUS!!!

They both have my brain just spinning out of control. I am so inspired..The friend that forward them to me wants a quilt similar (inspired by) the bottom quilt. I would love to purchase a pattern but I can't find one...The top one is my FAVE...I am pretty sure I am going to be making it x3....I just happen to know a couple others that would kill for it :)...

If by any chance any of you have seen a pattern or know the designers I would sure love to see if I can get a pattern and give them credit :)

A challenge

Thinking of an update for the blog I was going through all the latest pictures I have uploaded...Then I realized I really have a wide variety of photo's. I dont just have one hobby. So I thought. I would update with 3 of the latest pictures and update from there...I challenge each of you to do the same. Look at your photos and pic a couple of the most recent you have uploaded..Wether they go together or not.Mine definitely do NOT go together :)..
 Bel...My little dictator. She decides she wants attention and it doesnt matter what you are doing..She WILL get it...I love this dog..She is so like me :)


My two UFOs...Both done as of an hour ago :)...The red one has been a work in progress for 3 years..The top is silk and I will NEVER do a silk quilt again..The top one I have only been working on for about 6 months. Its for a dear friend. I cant really say I understand the whole Star Wars thing but he loves it :)..I will take full pictures of both later...

And finally I did a pre run in my Princess costume. Only a mile. But it was enough to let me know what changes needed to be made. I am glad to say that it was ALL good...Only 2 more months! I am already teary and emotional about it. I cant even imagine how much I am I am going to be crying through the run. Its been a long time in training. A LOT of hard work :)

So what is in your upload folder? Let me know and I will come check it out :)
