Show Your Wings Blog Hop

Thanks so much Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for being such a great hostess.

When Carol first announced this hop I knew right away what pattern I wanted to make and with what fabric. Feathers by The Pattern Basket and Sequoia fabric line by Edyta of Laundry Basket Quilts. I had both in my stash. I bought the pattern last year with the idea when I was feeling better I would try to piece it.

Dust Off a Book Blog Hop

Thanks to Bea of Beaquilter for getting this hop together.

For me this hop was last minute. I had signed up but somehow there was a mix up and my name was missed. But, it all worked out and I was added in around the end of last week.

Of course, that meant I had the weekend to get my project done. But, I was up for the challenge.

2019 UFO Challenge January Progress

I’m a late getting this post up but better late than never I guess. It was a busy January. Regardless, I was able to make some progress on my UFO.

FNwF’s Results

It’s been a really long time since I participated in FNwF’s. I’m happy to be back at it. Last night I decided to work on my UFO Challenge project for January, Celtic Hearts. It needs the hand quilting finished. After spending 10 mins on it, it became clear why I didn’t finish to start with. I really don’t enjoy hand quilting. It’s not that I don’t enjoy hand stitching, I do. I just don’t enjoy rocking the needle I guess. lol

2019 Goals Planning Party

As I sat writing this post and thinking about the year that has passed, I wonder were did the time go. I mean, for me it’s just not a new year to come but I also turn 50 in about a week. Wow, where has the time gone. There is this idea that you reach a certain age and that we just look back and think “wow, it’s been a long life”.  I don’t feel any different than I did in my twenties or thirties. It doesn’t feel like I should be here already. Time flies and because it does, it’s like age just snuck up on me.
