Where has the time gone?

Well, it's now August, yes, AUGUST ! I really need to get to this blog more often. The summer was hot and the kids were home from school. Now that school is in again maybe I can get to that hand quilting? Probably not for a bit. I'm cleaning the house and working on another Bonnie Hunter quilt. The top is almost done and I'm going to try quilting it in sections. Maybe I'll be able to fit it under my sewing machine using that method and it won't take me as long as that hand quilted Drunkard's Path. That one's been a stop and go project since the year 2000? or 2001? It's getting harder and harder to do hand quilting with the arthritis making my fingers go numb. I can only quilt for 10 minutes or so at a time, and that's when I even get to sew on it at all.

I updated my Flickr photo account today with some dolls I made and polymer clay sculptures. Please link to it and have a look at some of my stuff. I'll put the Bonnie Hunter quilt on there when it's done (it's called Pineapple Blossom).

Till next time!
