Next On The List...

Or should I say "Next on my bucket" list! In 2009, I started Civil War Chronicles. After cutting and sewing pieces together, I put the project aside. Every BOM kit, I had to make at least a quantity of 4 16" blocks. However, one of the BOM kits, I had to make 68 6"blocks! You read right...Sixty Eight Blocks!!! I believe that is when I put the whole project in its own container. I was BURNED OUT! 

So to get this project done, this weekend, my plan is to work on it. Here are the blocks laid out on my cutting table. Now to put them together. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Do find some time to do something you so enjoy doing.

Another UFO...

Off my bucket list! Better late than never...Right? 

 February Quilt is finished. YAY! Finished quilt size is 80" x 98". I made a couple of changes. Truth be told, I messed up while cutting. The blue strips you see around the center should have been an orange piece. I am happy with the results.

3's Company BOM

Now to decide should I custom quilt or all over quilting. I am still new to longarm quilting. So I think I will wait until I feel comfortable.

Now to move on to my next project. I need to get caught up on my other projects and decide what will be my next UFO.

Hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day. It was quiet here at home.

Until next time,

Slow Progress

here in my studio. Still dealing with the Doctor's and have scheduled appts. to see specialists on Oahu. The problem here on the Big Island is there are very few GOOD doctors! So we accept what we have and fly to Oahu to actually see good doctor's. For the next two months, I have to fly back and forth to see specialists and in between take my 80 yr. old father to Oahu for his Cataract surgery. Staying positive. 

 I've manage to sew a few blocks.

182-day Solstice Challenge

My plan this week is to get caught up on my UFOs this weekend. I have a meeting Saturday morning at our Church. 

Usually during lent season, Catholic tradition is fish on Fridays. However, since tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. Our Bishop here dispensation from abstinence from meat. But I will follow the tradition tomorrow. 

Wishing you all
