T.G.I.F.


I am making some progress on my Celtic Solstice mystery quilt from QuiltvilleThese are the 25 Block B's. Yum!
I am getting this project all organized to put the top together when my friend Louise comes to visit this weekend. Louise is a dear friend that I met in 1990 and she was the very first quilter I ever met! She convinced me that I too could be a quilter, she encouraged me to buy a sewing machine, and my life has not been the same ever since. I blame her!
For almost 25 years we have tried to get together at least once or twice a year and this weekend is our annual winter visit. We are going to sew and talk and eat and sew some more for as long as she can stay... can't wait!




Tonight is the first official FNSI for 2014... did you sign up? It's not too late - click here. I will likely be sewing border blocks for Celtic Solstice.

  4. A friend to sew with and FNSI...all is right with the world. And isn't it nice to be able to blame someone else for our bad habits!!

    Enjoy!!!

  5. Oh Kathy! Those blocks look wonderful all by themselves! I can't wait to see the top. I got sidetracked by a trip to my parents house. I did piece a couple blocks that were on my design wall. I think I need to keep a few up there...it motivates me!

  10. First of all, how nice that your quilty friend/mentor and you still get together regularly. I'll bet that is a wonderful time for you two.

    I just love your Celtic Solstice (I think it's one of Bonnie's best mystery quilts yet) ... I can't wait to see it all together.

    I didn't sign up for FNSI ... I wasn't sure I'd get some stitching done last night ... turns out I did. ;-) I wonder, will there be a sign up next month?
