What I'm doing and Not doing in the Sewing Cave

What was I thinking? To hand quilt this?

Next time I decide to hand quilt something again I will make sure it does NOT have so many seams. I haven't hand quilted in along time and my hands are cramping.
So I took a break and started playing with my letters. I finished Awesome (spelled correctly this time lol) and started on The Princess.

I also received a package of Batik Scraps I bought from Getsassed on Etsy. I just love them. It is so dreary here to day so that the pretty colors really draw my eyes.

Then I see that stack of solids I bought Presidents day weekend on sale. Dear Husband washed and dried them for me. Now I should be ironing them.

I also would like to go to JoA's and see about using my weekend coupons on something. We need to go to town and get some wood pellets and DH wants to go look at LAD lights to go under the kitchen cabinets.
The Mini Schnauzers need hair cuts. I need to start the fabric bowls I am making for a St Patties day party Mom is having. All the women in the family are making a craft to give to each other. I bought a three drawer plastic storage dresser and some plastic totes to organize my sewing cave as my fabric stash is over flowing it's storage bins. Dh swears it breeds and multiples after the lights go out. So many things to do and so little time.
Sigh....I think I will play on the computer for a while longer. lol What are you doing today?


  1. Would love to see something you make from your new batiks and those solids you have! Gorgeous colors!

  2. Love your fabrics & bright colors. Hope you fingers get well soon, 'cause you do great hand work.

  3. Bebe, check your local shops for finger cots. they are little rubbers for your fingers. makes gripping the needle for pulling through a TON easier.

    Love the batik scraps! What a find! Can't wait to see what you turn them into.

    breeding fabric....sounds like a money maker to me!

  4. I've been under the weather with a cold as of late and seeing all your bright colors made me feel better. Hope that your hand quilting goes easier as you get back in the groove

  5. everything you have is such gorgeous colors! thanks for visiting my blog - wouldn't we all LOVE to win free money and be able to quilt all day long with no worries?
