Hi Pam,
I kept meaning to comment on your Christmas blog - WOW! Were you productive! That's wonderful that you make so many gifts. That's so special to get something handmade, and I'm sure your family appreciates the thought and effort.

Your busyness inspired me to make some of my ideas for projects into actual projects. emoticon
My daughter is getting married in September, so I've been crocheting an afghan for her and her fiance, plus I've decided to make her garter and a few other little things. I'm toying with the idea of making myself a lightweight shawl for the wedding, but it really depends on what my dress looks like.

Thanks for setting such a great example for the rest of us, especially folks like me who are a bit too lazy for their own good. emoticon

Thanks Pam, for the candles. I am relaxing this weekend (maybe too much LoL). I did get a little bit of quilting done earlier and then dinner, plus the haircut and now DH & I are playing a game of Words with Friends on the ipad. I won the first round, now I'm going to let him win...that's fair right? I appreciate the goodie! Very inspiring to have such sweet friends.
Hugs & Blessings,
~Karla

I will keep posted what and when I do get to work on my quilt and different projects. It took me a whole day to do the firsts block, and I hope to make another one today. Its not a hard block, but it you have two 2 inch squares and sew them together, then you take strips and sew two to that 4 inches, being a 4 inch piece of a 2 inch wide strip, then cut excess off and do the other side with same color, and cut, and repeat until you have the amount of trips needed. Just remember to do two on each side. Its tat easy! then square the whole block and make sure you do two opposites to counter mirror each other and sew those four together and you have your block! I love this pattern. Its easy but I had to figure it all out before I knew what to do. First block took the most time. I am sure I can zip thru it once I get my material worked out. But I could not find the same colors or materials so it may not be all that I wanted, but I will make ti a valentine quilt. Love hearts! Just remember that two strips of the same color are needed on each side of the two beginning squares. That's how the foundation is. It a sort of lopsided log cabin but its square. (See picture) one to the left and the other to the right on foundation 2 / 2 inch squares. All the rest is, is two inch wide strips sewn to it. just need to know you need two separate colors for the last strip so they will be like opposites. Light versus a darker ending strip. but the ones that cross over and make the X are all the same color! Its a fun block! A challenge too! Have fun, try it with darks and lights! I may do opposites squares in a black and white! emoticon

You sound just like me. I was busy non stop before Christmas and still am. If I am nto sewing, I am crocheting, and if I am nto doing those I am reading or blogging or sending quilt patterns to my friends or on the phone with soem frineds, or working in my garden or some project. I am NEVER bored. I have so many arts and crafts I am alway working on something (Jewelry, quilting, painting, collecting, embroidery etc) . I ways soemthing! Lately, I have been saving recipes and I am about to make them into a recipe book... of all the recipes I found the past year or two in magazines, Womans world and other magazines. I also collect things (Thibles, rocks, bells, green glass and Coffee poots!) Plus lately I stared a new quilt. Its a really neat pattern. Hpe you take a look at my new blog which will show the block pattern. So I do know what it is to be always busy too.
