Project Pieces....

I had planned on sewing tons tonight-- but my pups decided it wasn't in the game plan.   So maybe we'll just write about it instead.  Here is the project I'm working on :

Hopefully by this weekend it will be a table runner for my kitchen.  Nine patches are relaxing.  There's nothing new in this project-- I just pulled fabrics from the cabinet.

Well-- why haven't I been sewing-- aside from the usual, work, laundry,exercise rituals that we do for life... I went to the Packer playoff game ten days ago.  You know you are having fun when they lose and you still consider it fun.  My college kids brought friends home for the annual chinese family cooking one weekend.  We had so much fun.

Last weekend we had Don's cousin from Florida-- who had never crossed the Mason Dixon Line--- Visited for 4 days.  We gave him the Ultimate U.P. Experience--- hiking, snowshoeing, sledding, icefishing  plus all the local foods.... Oh how we had fun.   Sometimes you have to see your home through others eyes to renew your appreciation for it....

So true, Melanie. I'll bet the cousin enjoyed the great U.P.

Love what you're working on and it's good to see your post.

Perfect for Valentine's Day.
I am hand quilting this evening. Stitching like crazy.

Loved your email; sounds like an adventure for the cousin!

I had my sewing machine set up in the kitchen since Saturday and only sewed three sides of an ornament I was finishing. Finally put it away last night. Here is prime sewing time (winter), and I'm not making headway. There are too many other things right now.
