Loooong day

American speed - Slloooowwww
Ohh this has been a long day. Even though there was no school today my youngest decided to go there and practice for JROTC, I think it was because of the food, yes they got food and cake.  Up at 8 and drive him and his friend, then home shower and breakfast. I had to go to 2 banks and the post office and everything is so slow here. I remember when I was a kid and my mother used to say when I was in a hurry that I was  going in an American speed, wonder where she got that everything was so fast in America, I haven´t noticed. I think that everything is exceptionally slow, like people get payed for the time they take to serve you. Well when this morning thing was finally finished I had to pick the boys up from school and then go to the grocery store, oh don´t like that on a Friday, I usually go on Wednesdays but I can´t remember why i didn´t this week. I was so tired when I got home. Decided to go through some fabric and find some fabric for some minis for BQE . Oohh how beautiful fabric always makes you feel better, lol.

UFO´s, FLIMSY´s and USO´s

I am trying to keep to my goal of finishing my UFO´s and FLIMSy´s before I start something new at least something big.  I know I will do some small things like swaps and a few bags and pincushions lol, it´s always something, but surfing around and seeing all the beautiful things everyone is doing is giving my a hard time. I went through everything and made a list of everything I want to finish. Some things just need quilting and binding and should be easy to do if I set my mind to it, other things are WISP´s  and will be done some day. And then there are the USO´s just the fabric bought and the pattern ready.

Be Attitudes

This is one I really want to finish first and it so nearly done but I am not sure how to quilt it. I don´t want to ruin it after all the work, by doing a lousy quilt job.

One Block Wonder
My UFO sewing is coming along really slow. But slow is better then not. I got a few of the smaller things like wall hangings and table tops all the way to the binding part but that is absolutely my least favorite part of it all, the binding. Some of my bigger quilts still need backings and I am just not getting into the groove and I know I will be without my wonderful sewing room for 2 weeks in November so I don´t know why I can´t use the time I have until then. I found some swaps I really want to participate in until Christmas so I have to make time for that, I love swaps so I will definitely do that. One is a mug rug on this blog Aunt Pitty Pat´s and i really love the Flickr photos of the mug rugs they are adorable and I am looking forward to doing that.

Cat paws

Well I have been doodling with the layout of the blog and think I have now as I want it to be. I wanted to have pictures of my cats on the top as they do leave pawprints on my quilts and on my life as well. The only thing now is to post more pictures of my sewing but as we are still trying to do a lot of things in the house there hasn´t been much time for that lately. Hopefully that will change soon.

Love this season. Autumn. Love the weather, the colors and the smell of cinnamon. The temperature is just right in the evening and I love sitting outside listening to the critters and the fish in the canal. And the cats love it too, sitting outside and trying to capture the flies outside the screen, no luck there even though Bast managed to capture some small lizards who all loose their little tail in the battle. Poor little lizards, but they escape with their lives so all is good  in the animal kingdom.
