Black and White

Well, as I said last time I am working on a black and white quilt for a friend and today I can say I have all except three blocks complete all in the midst of my sweet hubby working on helping me get organized in the sewing room. I think if I can work in there this week like I am expecting to I will be able to get it completed and made into a top before the end of the week.I have to say I do love the flying geese method I learned from Eleanore Burns. They come out right every time I just wish I had the formula so I could make them for any size I want to make. I will post some pictures of this one when it is a top.
I had thought I was getting my room all straightened out and then I went in there today after not being in there in two days. Oh, my I still have a long way to go on the whole organization thing. I feel like I can do this, even though I must admit organization is not my strong point ever. I am excited to see the future even though there are problems in my today's. I am looking at the things wrong and making the effort to change them.
Have a great day!!!!!

Quilt for a friend

I have been working on a black and white quilt for several months now and I am still working on it. I really thought it would be complete by now. I have had quilts that were trouble in the past, but this one has been the worst ever. I am making 24 squares, 12 of one kind and 12 of another. I have yet to complete the first 12. I worked on them today and I was up to the last four half square triangles. I started to put them on and realized that I had made a mistake and I had to go back a round and redo them. So instead of finishing the first 12 squares I am not there yet. I have them all redone now so I just have to put the last four on. I am down to 6 to go. Such a frustrating day. Such a day such a day. I did however complete the projects for the classes I am teaching. I will need to make two more for the next set of classes. I have students for all of the classes I am working on this month and they are all very excited about them.
Have a good evening and I hope to be back soon.

What is going on!!

Hey, I have been out of commision for the last few weeks so to speak. I have seen a couple of Dr.'s and had X-rays and spent lots of money. Then I came to the conclusion that they were not making things any better and took it into my own hands. I seem to have a sprained knee and I am doing some threapy exercises to see if it will get better. Sure enough it is, but still haven't gotten on the computer.
I have done a lot of sewing and gotten a wall hanging and some gifts for my family made. I have pictures but with the new camera I have not figured it out yet. I mostly need to get it in the same room with the computer, and haven't yet. I will make every attempt to do that this week and get them posted here.
I have taken a class in blogging and learned some great things. I will be making some changes on the blog too in the near future. I work tomorrow night so it will be later in the week. I do hope all of you will have a wonderful week and come back soon to see the photos and the new stuff.
