 I know this picture doesn't look a lot different from other pictures of the progress on the City Green quilt but really, it is!

No, I have not been drinking, why do you ask?

These units are groups of FOUR squares not TWO, silly!  I sewed them all together, making sure none of the four were the same and then pressed them all, it took a lot of time.  For real.  Tomorrow I will start joining them into one long strip.  I am not sure if tomorrow's pictures will be any more exciting than today's!
 Plus, tomorrow I start a new job, yes, me the retired lady.

Before you are too worried about if I will have time to continue this blog, let me reassure you.  I only work on Mondays and Wednesdays.  I am going to teach Spanish 102 at South Suburban College. The class meets from 12 to 1:40.  I figure with commuting, running off papers, meeting with students, etc. that it will take up from 11:00 to 3:00 twice a week.  I can handle it. 

If that isn't enough excitement, my Aqua Exercise class starts up this week also.  How do I handle all of the commitments?  Discipline, pure and simple, that's how I do it.  That class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 to 9:45 and I swim laps afterward so it is a pretty brutal week.

It this cuts into my sewing, I apologize in advance!  Here are some fun pictures to make up for the fact that I only have one project going on right now.
I love this shelving unit, it's a primitive antique and I used to have it in my living room.  Now, it is in my sewing room and I have projects here that are in the staging area, they are soon to be on deck.  I have 3 or 4 quilts calling my name and waiting to be made and LOTS of table runners.  Those poor table runners have probably been waiting two years.  I will get to them, I will!

Lest you think I an a total slacker, here's my living room wall.  See, four quilts!  I made these before I had my Gammill so I only pieced them and bound them, I did not machine quilt them.  I love them all!

I will work on the City Green quilt tomorrow when I get home from work.  (Yeah, you've never read that in  this blog before!)

I think it will be a fun experience and maybe I will work little work stories in with my sewing stories.  I will keep sewing because we all know that all work and no playing makes Kathy a very unhappy quilting lady!

It's all about balance, I wish your working and playing are balanced as well.


  1. The four quilts on the wall are some of my favorites. I know you will not let school work get in the way of sewing. Have fun at both.
