What Now?

Yesterday was my birthday, oh thank you. We're not really going to talk about it except to say it was different, odd and interesting. It started horribly with me running outside in the dark thinking I was taking on a python and ended with this: 

And this

So it all ended very well, and I have a wonderful husband.

The day after my Bday is always like New Years Day for me, what's next? What popped into my head was "Now you've gone and done it, you started a blog so you could show off the kids so now you have to figure this out". Looking at blogs this morning was a small answer. WIP Wednesday. I can show you what I'm doing. This is what my current project has looked like for days now.

Just sadly laying next to the machine completely ignored. I had a panel of "Dream On" my Urban Chicks that I was going to make a cheater quilt out of, but I just couldn't do it. So I cut them apart and made this with stash fabric. Quick easy and not exciting, which is what I came up with when I questioned myself about why I'm not working on it. It's boring because I've done it before.

So now I need to challenge myself and do something new. I have an idea floating around and when I'm ready I'll share it with you.

See you soon,


  1. I don't think they are boring at all! Very cute...but come on with the other idea and get it ready so that you can share it :)

  2. I love the colors in your quilts. Happy birthday!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I like those quilts and especially I love the colours and fabrics in the last one with two turquoise borders around! But surely next you need to sew something else!

  4. Happy Birthday! I brought my DH here earlier just to show him your dogs, you see I was so enchanted with your story I just had to tell him, which lead to a conversation about how light can german shepherds be to him eventually saying "of course that's a german shepherd," shows what I know anyway.

    I know where you're coming from with the "I've done it before". I have an "I've done it before quilt on the quilt" on my frame right now. Do you know how much I want to quilt it? Enough to get it off the frame so I can bind it and put it away already.

    What did the Python turn out to be?
