Trapped Inside My Head…

Trapped inside my head are the 5 blog posts I had planned on doing, but they never got transferred to the computer screen.  Trapped inside my camera are the pictures that accompany said blog posts. 

They are very interesting things!  The subjects include two pairs of hand-knitted socks (and another pair in the making), 4 quilt finishes, and 2 upcoming quilt shows.  Now don’t you wish I would just “get ‘er done” and get these posts written out?  ME TOO!

Today I am wrestling with a bear… getting a 110” x 110” quilt put into the machine.  This is the absolute MAX size I can fit in my 12 ft. frame.  Oh, did I mention?  The backing fabric is 108” wide, so I am having to add to one side of the lining to make it long enough.  Did I also mention?  The batting is 96” wide, so I am also having to add inches onto that.  I’m not complaining, just saying. 

Now you know why the blog posts in my head and the pictures in my camera will not meet up with you today.  But they will as SOON (I HOPE) as I can tame that bear in the quilting room.




  1. You can do it because you are awesome! BTW, my quilt is beautiful!

    1. So glad you liked it! It was fun to work on, and I learned something, too!

  2. Bear wrestling is tiring, but rewarding. Tackle the problems slow and steady and soon it will be done.


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
