I Am Sewing Again!!!!

                          I am (sew) excited!!! I have finally dusted off my sewing machine and started sewing again. I have not sewn in over a month!! Why??? I really don't know...I just wanted to take a break. Sometimes I just want to play with other things...paper, paints, and art journaling. It felt sooooo good to sew. So, I made my Blogger's block of the month blocks..... And I pinned a UFO quilt...in which I will be quilting this weekend. I have friends coming over Saturday to sit and sew with me in my studio!! Here is my show and tell......   I have a lovely little Vanna to show you my work this time :O)
                 
Her name is Daisy...and if you look close enough she has thread on the tip of her nose!!! LOL!! She is the dog of a quilter after all :O)

We are on the 10th month of the free Blogger's block of the month. Only 2 months left.

Here are both of the blocks together. This month the designer was...Pam from Pamkittymorning
I am having a blast making these blocks. I can't wait to start putting them together....hmm...my mind is already starting to gather ideas.

I finally got my rear in gear and pin basted my batik UFO. 

I have sewing friends coming over this weekend...I wanted something to work on!!

Yes!!! I did it!! I had not finished pinning when I started this post. I was determined to get it done!!

                                   Hope all is well with you on your side of the world :O)

Love the quilt, so colorful. Do you attach your quilt to the table when you pin it or do you let it just lay there? I am trying to find a way to baste without getting on the floor. I have RA.
