Still Alive!

So Much Thread. . . So little Quilt

Isn't this a happy sight! Love all the colors I've been working with. I don't think I've changed so many threads on a quilt before. Not loving the changing, but it's fun to work with so much color!

I like Fridays Off. . .

I woke up later than usual this morning and came down to the kitchen to find this. . .

Mr. Clean as he is lovingly known around the house aka. My Hubby is at it again. He now has every other Friday off and I think I'm going to like it!! Since I've been trying to work every second on getting the quilting done on the quilt, now named Stellar. (We tried to come up with something better, but it wasn't happening.) So the house has been neglected and Mr. Clean noticed the fridge was getting pretty gross. Nothing growing in there, but stuff had been spilled and gotten yucky. Let's leave it at that. . . . and so he decided to clean it up. Woo Hoo! I told him I wouldn't mind if he took over the domestic chores. I'll gladly spend all my time quilting. . . and playing. . . and shopping. . .

Well, I'm off to work more on Stellar and hopefully get her done today. Wish me luck!

Snafoos. . .

So I'm quilting along and the center of one of the blocks feels like there's paper in it. So I lift the top and check and nope, there's just fabric. Then I realize that it's different fabric than is on the top. So I figure that it just feels stiff because there are two layers of fabric. Nope, it still feels papery. So I lift the top again, and realize that there is a layer of paper between the 2 different fabrics!! So I have to snip the fabric on the bottom out and pull out the paper! OOOooops!!!!

Catching up!

So I'm working like a crazy person to get this quilt finished for HMQS. Well that is in between taking the 3 year old to the Dr's because he woke up w/monster goobers in his eyes and a fever. Running to JoAnn's for Iron cleaner because I dropped the iron on the carpet while pressing open these monster spikes and million pointed seam intersections!!! Going to the store for dress clothes for the boys so they can look nice at church on Sunday. Trying to figure out what to feed everyone on Easter Sunday. ETC ETC ETC!!!!

Here are a few pics.
I had the 14 year old run up and get the other iron. Guess what??? It's gross too!

The triangular confetti from trimming all the corners where I'm trying to eliminate bulk in the intersections.

The crazy points at each intersection!

Another Finish

So I'm really lost at where I am at keeping everyone up to date on what I'm doing. Yep, let's just say it's a bit crazy around here. My Parents were in town for about 6 days. The college boys came up for the weekend. One brought his girl friend. The married couple and g-baby were here several days this week. Friday the girls went Easter dress shopping. It's CRAZY!!

But before all that! I got Pauline's quilt finished. It's not delivered, but it is finished!

Even though my camera stinks. Here's a picture, and I know you can't see the quilting. Sorry. I can't wait for the new camera to arrive, but we ordered it and it's supposed to be shipping to the USA this month. Here's keeping the fingers crossed that it makes it soon.
