So of course it was blogging and sewing.
It has been kind of like when I brought my babies home from the hospital except worse. I have been sort of in a tale spin. The house has been a mess, not much cooking, laundry piled everywhere. LOL
Slowly we are getting a routine. The worst part about the puppies...I HATE getting up early in the morning, and they are early risers. UGH! Oh well, a small sacrifice for these precious bundles of energy. At least I get to crawl back in the bed after our morning routine if I want.
Ray is travelling this week, so I have the babies to myself. He called last night and I put the phone on speaker. He whistled and talked to the pups and they just stared at the phone and tilted their heads trying to figure it all out. It was so cute.
Any sewing? Not much. I have been keeping up with Erin over at One Piece at a Time. She is doing an applique BOM that she designed. I haven't taken the first stitch, but I have been practising the method she uses. My problem with this and almost all applique is picking the fabrics. I have no idea why. I guess I don't have these issues with piecing because I do mostly scrappy. Applique seems to me to need more structure. Maybe I am making it harder than it has to be.
I cut out a new project...or two...or three. I always over cut. American Patchwork and Quilting (Dec issue) has a quilt made by Jo Morton on the cover that I LOVE. I started pulling fabrics, ironing, cutting and having the best time. Before I knew it I had SO much cut I could make at least two quilts possibly three. DUH! Oh well, I love this quilt and I love her fabrics and I know I will love how ever many I make.
