Pulling it together!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) Dickens's characters
(2) one-pot dinners
(3) home exercise equipment

Way back in February I took my medical release forms to the senior center, so I could be checked out on their exercise equipment.  You're not allowed to use the equipment unless/until you get a medical release from your doctor, and get an assessment by the athletic director.  Well, yesterday I finally got around to going in for the assessment, so I'm good to go.  No more excuses now!

Can it be December already??  Yesterday was my blog-iversary, somehow it completely slipped my mind - Eat, Sleep, Quilt is now a very healthy 2 years old!

I embellished the gigantic 16" wreath that I made for my Christmas quilt, with poinsettias from a very ugly Christmas print.  It looks a bit better without all the white space it had before
Still some white space, but it looks better...  It's ready now to be joined with other blocks.

I enjoy seeing the ladies' progress in the quilting workshop at the senior center!   Ruth had a piece of fabric with hamburgers that another member gave her, and she didn't know what she'd do with it.  She was so proud of herself when she cut it up in 1" pieces for a quilt pattern she found!
the culprit!

the solution!

This seems to be an I-Spy quilt; she showed me the pattern but I didn't see the name of it.  I think this will be a pretty quilt when she's done!

Nancy made this lovely quilt from her scrap strips:
She started with center pieces and kept adding borders all around - great job!  She just has to make the backing and it'll be ready to quilt.

That's all for now - today I go to a craft show with Charlene and ogle other people's creativity.  Have a great Saturday - sew forth and sew on!


  1. Great list today! Oh, I would have loved to have been challenged with that 'burger' fabric.

  2. Linda, congrats on your 2nd anniversary - keep up the good work, I really enjoy your blog and read it every morning.

  3. Congrats on two years! Your blog makes me smile...

  4. WOW! Where has the time gone. I can't believe it has been two years. I enjoy reading your blog every day. It motivates me to get through my stash. Only if I can stay off the internet, I can complete the mountains of UFOS. LOL!!!

  5. Linda Happy Blogiversary!! I enjoy reading your blog and love your "things to be happy about". It's a good reminder for me to count all those blessings. Thank you for that.
