Quilt for a Friends' Mom

I have a very dear friend who's mom is battling cancer. She's on the last stages of chemo and they are having a surprise birthday party I asked Mary over at / for help on a pattern to make a quilt my friends' mother's birthday. She came up with Manchester Rose.  Of course, Mary picked the perfect pattern for the fabric I chose.  Thanks Mary.  Have a great night All!

Rainy Day

On my way out the door this morning, I grabbed my jacket from the coat closet, spied the umbrella and thought 'do I really need that'.  I did.  It's raining.  I guess I'll be making a mad dash for my car at the end of my work day.  We had a plan to take Fia to the pumpkin patch, but the line was too long and her dad didn't want to wait through it.  So...I planned to write about it and include pictures.  Oh was a nice weekend just the same.  Had dinner with friends, played some Wii American Idol, went to a birthday party at the Grizzly Rose and worked on cleaning my sewing room.  I'm up to three bags of trash.  Take care and stay warm and dry.  A

Sewing Room

I've been working on getting my sewing room in order. I finally realized that my sewing room is like my desk at work. When I have so much crap on my desk I can't focus on one thing I know I need to clean it. The same thing has been happening in my sewing room when I go in I've been working on cleaning it. I am also grateful to have a room that is dedicated to what I like to do. Let me rephrase that...What I LOVE to do! I've been working on it and I decided I'd show you what it looked like before I started cleaning it up. ACK! It's super messy! Here goes! Stay tuned to the same Bat time and the same Bat channel for the new and improved sewing room. ;)

Okay Here's the Deal

I always intend to sew and craft when I get home from work. The issue is when Martin gets home, I just want to sit with him. If he's out and about doing things I'm okay with going into the sewing room and sewing. When he comes in though...out my butt goes to plop in my chair. On the weekends I am more apt to be in my sewing room, but these days our weekends are so busy I'm not even home. I have a quilt I need to cut out, I haven't been able to because he's been home. I'm hoping to get something done. I have a lot of Christmas gifts I'm working on, but not getting done. HELP!!!!
