I'm working on it...

I've been working on that Origins Quilt.  I have all the blocks done and today I bought the sashing and border fabric.
See isn't it pretty! I just love it. Okay, so as you remember, (Notice I think you read and remember what I say?) I was having a horrible time sewing up the blocks and having them turn nice and square. Well, the Sewful Sisters helped me, but obviously it wasn't good enough as it didn't help much. I can sew a 1/4 seam or a scant 1/4 inch seams but not a "smaller" seam. So my blocks are a bit disappointing but I'm going to forge ahead ignoring cut off points and just see this project through to the end. 

And as promised, I've been working on my Patience Block - embroidery takes me so long to do. (Have I said that before?  Oh right, I've said it about 10 times before- Sorry.)  Here's my block so far.
On it's side because we like to do things sideways. 

And I have all my homework done for this week!  Yippe!!  On Tuesday I did about 3 hours of reading and essay writing, and then didn't save my work correctly!  All my work was lost.  All of it!  Oh dear!  So I decided it wasn't worth getting upset over and did it all again on Wednesday.  I thought it would take less time, or be easier or at least better. Nope.  Same 3 hours, same quality.  Oh well.  Guess What?  I make sure I save my essay answers correctly!!

Tonight is back to school. I still go to these even though my daughter is in high School.  It makes her think I'm interested in her school work.  LOL!!  Actually I do like it and I find out about her teachers, what they are like and what they will be expecting.  AND I get to give them my e-mail address so that they let me know how she is doing in class.   


  1. Pretty fabrics. Your embroidery looks great! Even if you are slow, it is really good looking! Good job getting homework done--twice even!

  2. The fabrics are very pretty...sometimes we just need to see how things turn out...even if they are not perfect. I'm sure your quilt will be nice once it's all together. I went to our sons open houses all the way through high school as well. I miss that!
