Dust in the Sewing room

Yep, dust bunnies are reproducing in the sewing room and that’s about all that been producing lately.  I haven’t sewn a stitch in seems like ages and it’s been at least a couple weeks since I quilted anything.  I’m beginning to feel withdrawal symptoms coming on!

The hubby and I have been very busy helping our friends who are moving here from Tucson whenever we have the extra time.  He has some limitations due to health issues.  They are also raising their grandson who is in summer school and someone needs to stay there to take him / pick him up from school so time spent on the ‘new’ house is limited.  But it’s getting there and the house will be ready for their target move in date of June 28.  We’re so glad we’re able to help them, but I also will be very glad when it’s done… this ole gal isn’t what she used to be!!!

I had taken my 2 granddaughters, Kari (19) and Tiffani (4) shopping.  What a great time we had.  It was Tiffani’s first trip into SAS, a ‘different’ sort of fabric store in Tucson.  Oh to see the glittery and shiny fabrics through the eyes of a 4 year old!   We did pick out some fabric and yesterday Kari came over and we spent a day cutting out patterns in preparation for a sew day.  So I may be doing a bit more garment sewing the next couple weeks than quilt sewing…

Cathy B.just to add a picture.  I made this block for Cathy B. for a block swap a few years ago.  It is one of my favorite blocks ever.  I love everything about it.  And to think I’ve never made another one!  I made the block using the Lazy Angle ruler and the book “Lazy and Lovin’ It” from Lazy Girl Designs.  Maybe it’s time for me to get busy and make a quilt using this block and I think I may still have some of that fabric….  ummm, seems like I might have a plan!

Until next time,
