Day 3 - Sewing Goddess

It's day 3 and I'm rearing to go. 
Right now I feel like the lady in this drawing that my Grandmother drew for my Uncle back in the 1930's

A Sewing Goddess

But in reality, I probably look  more like this

So no matter how I look or feel I'm ready.
I was thinking that I need to get caught up on my Stash Bee blocks. I have last month and this month to do so I think I'll do that first. Seeing how the temps outside are cold, 42 degrees. I will not be going out there for a little while. I have already taken care of the chickens and fed "the man of the place", so I'm good. But I will need to take a break later to go out and cover up my plants and bring some in because we are going to have a least a frost, possibly a freeze. That's later thou.
I'll be back later with pictures of what I was able to get done.
Till then

 I swear I must be the slowest quilter on the planet. I spent all afternoon in the sewing room and this is all I have to show for it. Now grant cha the couple hours I spent on the computer have nothing to do with it. You know I had to see how I was
 suppose to make my blocks and that lead to another thing and so on and so on. 
I did get last month block done for Danny and still need to do this month block. 
You know I need something to do tomorrow.

I was also able to make and attach portions of the filler blocks 

I have a lot to do on this quilt and it will be nowhere near finished by tomorrow but it felt good to get this much done
Well that is what I was able to accomplish. 
I did get out there to the garden and was able to cover the veggies that I hope to save for a few more weeks of growth. And the plants on the porch were all moved to the garage or covered. 
It was a good day. I hope you were able to have one also. 
See ya tomorrow.


  1. Lovely post, I think most of us would probably look like the second pic, but I do love the picture that your Grandmother drew.

  2. Kat, I have just had a great read of all your posts! Love your quiltathon days! Your quilt is gorgeous...and your mitered corners superb. Loved seeing the Halloween Dear Jane and really like the look of that hamburg meal...yummy! I have the same book and use it as my go-to book. Enjoy the rest of the weekend...you aren't wasting a minute! Love it!

  3. Your drawing is fabulous!!! Lucky you!
    You got quite a bit done. I don't know about you but I always over estimate what I can accomplish is a day. LOL

  4. keep up the great work on your SAL quilt.......


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
