So Many Irons in the Fire

Thank you so much for all your wonderful messages and well wishes on my last post!  I so appreciated them.

Busy, Busy, Busy but getting little accomplished.

Here is are project updates -

waste not, want not.  I had to piece 2 sections of batting before I can baste my Abe Lincoln quilt.

What a good helper -

Here are sneak peaks on 2 different small quilts, one a challenge and one a swap  - can't tell you which is which....

 Making slow progress on my Mother's Garden quilting.

Gathering up about 3o quilts to take to a local quilt guild to present  a trunk show on Wednesday night.

all under the watchful eye of you know who.

Hoooray!  My son, Andrew, received an acceptance letter from Ramapo College for next fall.  Great job, Andrew!  We're waiting to hear about housing (fingers crossed).  We may be empty nesters next fall.

Have a great week.


  1. I am THRILLED for Andrew YEAH!!!!! lots of wonderful news at your house!

    oh your sneak peaks look great! can't wait to see the whole quilts!
    Have fun at the trunk show that will be fun for you to hear all the oohs and aaahs over your quilts

  2. Great job Andrew!!! I know you must be so proud of him.

    Love all your projects that you are doing under the "Watchful eye"

  3. It loks like Coco is still being a terrific helper! LOL

    I'd love to see your trunk show. I'm sure it will be wonderful.

    Looking forward to the challenge /swap reveals.

  4. Always fun to see your projects. You really need to try the new product for joining batting edges--it is fusible! Would give you more time for other more fun things!

  5. Wow! You quilts all look great together. Hope we get to see pix of your trunk show. Congratulations to your son!

  8. Yay for Andrew! Great news!
    Your work is just beautiful!-how you do all that you do is beyond me.,, look at that pile of gorgeous quits! Vie decided that I'm going to restrain myself more this year and not give away so many quilts. I'm serious. I have a real problem with this, I need to keep some! I have very little to show for my work. That is good n bad...
    I adore the valentine from your friend and you looked so beautiful on your wedding day. Xo
