I am amazed how by just focusing a tiny bit of time on me since I was feeling lost and in Need of Me. Despite having a million and one things I want to do and have to do, when I did Lower My Expectations? I really started enjoying myself. No one is harder on me, than myself!
And the amazing thing is? I have been dusting off some WIPs, have a few finishes, and finally had an epiphany for some other projects!!
Cathedral Window Pincushion
A treat for my swap partner.
This is my very first swap, but I noticed in other posts that participants don't just send a quilt. I didn't have any goodies to send, so I made another cathedral window pincushion. The bandanna fabric with the red,white, and blue fabric are a nod to the origin that the package is coming from...
good Ole Texas!
Artist's Palette Mini Quilt
My Name Game Swap quilt is finished!
I mailed it off yesterday and can't wait to see what she thinks. I can't reveal anything other than this Sneak Peak.
But I promise a full reveal later!!! I sure hope she likes it!
I have had this bag that I have always loved. Except for the scratchy handles...and the awful staining from some sort of trip to the pool with goodies!
A little ripping of seams, using the old fabric for a pattern, new handles and interior ala Amy Butler Midwest Modern II Fresh Poppies Ivory, and a cute pink zipper?
And I am in love with it again!!!!
Merry, Merry Snowman Quilt
I actually opened the package of BOM #1 and accomplished the first task!
10 square in a square blocks!
I also pieced the background, but still need to do the applique's and embroidery...so no exciting pictures of that part.
Retro Flower QAL
Button's Nursery Quilt for twin bed
Baby Girl Quilt Kit
Thank You Quilt
The Teenager's Bedroom
I finally took the kid with me and forced him to wander the fabric store so I could finally get some window treatments up and throw pillows on the bed that has this bedding from Pottery Barn on it.

It was only a tiny bit painful for him, however, Mr. Boss is questioning the seriously abundant amount of stripes.
But I must carry on...can't return the cut fabric!
Another Halloween Quilt.
Yup. I needed this like a need a hole in my head, but when I made the Spiders and Webs quilt last year, I loved it...but it really didn't coordinate with the rest of the black and white theme I had in the rest of the room. I have a jelly roll that is all black and white, but unfortunately it is only 20 strips instead of the normal 40, so I picked up a few more fabrics to add!
So, I might have derailed all of my efforts to de-stress, but I feel like my sew-jo is back! When it is back you can't look back!
Now to catch up with all the rest of the WIPers and link up at
Go check it out! It is worth it!!!!!
