My blog is like my diet.

Lately, it seems like my blog is like a diet.  You know, the "I'll start tomorrow"  and you say that to yourself with all good intentions, but then for whatever reason, you put it off again.  So, that's where I've been lately with blogging, but I am hoping that I will get back on it now.

So, first off my latest addition.

I really want to make more clothes for my granddaughters, and maybe some more for me, so a working serger is a bonus.  This is a basic model, and will do all and more than I need.  My newest favorite blog site is craftiness is not optional and it is full of darling clothes for little girls, and pattern recommendations, and also an endorsement for this little serger.  I haven't done any real sewing on it yet, but have big plans in my head.

And my Dear Jane quilt.  I made a few more blocks. I don't know why I like making these little blocks so much, but I do, and each one gives me such a feeling of accomplishment.  A little victory in each one.

I am packing my bags for a weekend reunion with my high school friend.  We actually were friends in Jr. high, joined at the hip in high school, went to college together, house mates after college, and even packed up our belongings and relocated to Oregon together.  Then for whatever reason, our lives went very separate ways, and our correspondence stopped.  So now, twenty plus years later, we are going to get reacquainted.  I am very excited for our time together.



  1. Love the blocks! And the serger -- how cool is that? I've never used one, let me know what you think. And have a great visit!

  2. Can't wait to see the DJ. You should be proud of it, that quilt has taken many a quilter down. to finish one is a BIG accomplishment. Have a wonderful trip.
