WIP: Will I ever get some time to sew?

My computer issues set me back a few days.  I was able to recover all of my files, but still had to erase and reinstall my entire hard drive and software using Mr. Bosses Mac book. Who knew?

While we were at it, we installed a new printer since my old one was printing offset and only printing in black and blue.  I am highly annoyed that it took time away from other things, but I can't complain...computers make some things just too easy these days!

Finishes: NONE. I figured if I made this TEENY TINY to read you wouldn't bother reading it?

In Progress: 

Teacher Mug Rugs
5 bindings finished out of the 12.  I do it during my TV time at night.  

But the view is the same.

Violet's Quilt

 More of the border. 

The paper piecing is semi-slow going.  I find a bit of time, but get sidetracked when Button gets into my things like this:

And this:

And informed me that he has decided to write his very own Baby Button's Advice Column.  
This week's installment?

How to get up on mom's sofa in her studio. 
Just pull down the pillows for a boost. Take note of the linear line up of the pillows and the nod to his safety.  His mother's boy.

No Progress:

  Twins Quilt (tops finished)
Retro QAL (very few blocks pieced)
Twin quilt for nursery (still in design stage)
Christmas quilt (top unfinished)
Baby girl quilt kit
Thank you quilt 
Merry, Merry Snowman BOM
June's charity bee blocks

I am off to see if I can get my creative motivation going and visit some of my quilting/sewing friends at

Lee is on R&R so there are going to be guest posts every week! FUN!!!


  1. I didn't have any finishes either this week, and not even enough progress to link up. And I have no good excuses! Besides, Button's adorableness is enough to make up for it!

  2. I totally would get zero done if I had a baby that cute! I LOVE your purple flying geese!

  3. Ugg, computer issues....
    ALL my bookmarks disappear with our modem upgrade, last week. How many hours do you suppose I have wasted, this week, trying to find things I was going to work on next???

  4. Your flying geese are super cute, sorry to hear about the computer issues.

  5. yuck, computer issues. That's enough to zapp any energy that could be put into sewing. Oh, if Button os to much of a distraction send him over here, I'm sure Miss Lily and him could keep me busy for a while :o)

  6. I read the fine print! jaja was a good idea. That I love flying goose .. will be my next project.
    if I write weird is that I use google translator

  7. I'm with you. I wonder if I'll ever get time (or energy) to sew again. My 2 month old seems to think it's not possible for him to sleep unless he is attached to me...and that gets exhausting!
    I love your purple border, though! That's really cool! Good luck with everything!

  8. I strongly believe there is some kind of spell on computers around the world!!!
    Your works are looking good!!!
    Your little guy seems really brave for his age!! He doesn´t get bored, does he?
    I hope you get everything done...or at least some thing! LOL


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
