    Re: Week 35 Plain Jane or American Jane!?!?

    Congrats junglewife. During the cold I try to finish up projects that I've started and put aside. My son is getting married this May so I'm trying to get them a quilt (king size) done for a wedding gift. Having a hard time with it being colder than usual in GA. All I want to do at night is curl up and stay warm. Think I'm still having withdrawals of my Grandchildren moving out and blaming it on the cold.

    Happy quilting and stay warm

    Well, I first check out the Daily Deal! My daughter is still home from college, doesn't go back till the 17th so I've been hanging out with her, getting caught up with reading and movies. I have not sewn since mid December, looking forward to that!

    Getting through January by focusing on some Valentine stitching. I got the L'amour jelly roll and cut out THREE table toppers using the Criss Cross Applesauce pattern in Terry Atkinson's Let's Do Lunch book. A little more work than I thought they would be, but really cute! Two are for PIF gifts that I will send off by this weekend.

    I am trying to finish up some projects (yeah!) and do some early spring cleaning (yuk!). And the hubby and I are getting ready to redo my 16 year old son's room. He deserves it. He's a sweetheart. Maybe I'll find time to get a quilt done for his room too.

    It is been colder than normal here in Ohio. I have been taking this opportunity to finish some sewing/quilting projects, organizing my Christmas stuff and thinking about what I want to do in the garden this growing season.

    Happy Sewing,
    Rae

    I'm still working on the kids' I SPY's and think I am switching from hand quilting to machine quilting. It's basically a stitch in the ditch and it's killing my fingertips trying to get through the top, interfacing, batting, and backing. These need to get done! Also have a few others to finish. I have no problem staying inside to finish projects once the shoveling is done. It's when Spring arrives and then I am out in the flower beds alot.

    Hugs,
    quilting trish
    congratulations junglewife!

    Winter. We are having a colder-than-usual winter. That usually means being able to sit in front of the fireplace and handpiece. But, I'm spending entirely too much time on the internet, and not enough time with some handwork... I think I should reverse this, and them maybe I'd get more done! LOL!

    Congratulations Junglewife!!

    January is almost half over! I spent the first half at home with my children who FINALLY went back to school today after their Christmas break (I REFUSE to call it a "Holiday" break, and I will be the first to tell you its not politically correct...but I dont care!) I did get my rail fence quilt almost finished, made a baby doll size quilt with the end pieces of the strips and a little pillow for my nieces daughter and her baby dolls.
    For the second half of the month, I'll be working on 2 BOM squares, watching Jenny on youtube (for the umpteenth time! lol) and trying out the Dresden pattern. I picked up the template today along with a new charm pack (Nature's Notebook by Moda...gorgeous mix of pastel blues, yellows, greens and creams, very springlike!) Nothing like getting that New Year's resolution out of the way early!!
    Other than the normal day to day activities (cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc) I dont have much else planned (love being a SAHM after so many years of working!) for the month.

    Me? I am keeping busy with little projects....and I think I will decorate for Valentines Day early this year! I could use some red and pink hearts around here!
