Ready Set Go

Tonight was my first FNSI and at 8:30 pm tonight I was all set and ready to stitch away!  At 11:30 tonight I realized I was missing a block and had to come up with one...UGH!  Tomorrow is my daughters wedding shower and I am going to have the blocks in a cute little red tin for her to finally get to view them.  Then it's back to the machine and get that all the sashing done.

Getting ready for FNSI

For the next two days I have to attend a trauma course, so everything's on hold 'till Friday night when I get to participate in the FNSI.  This is a sneak peak at adding some trim to one of my blocks.  I'm so excited about using the bliss line for my daughter's quilt for her wedding.  Once I add the rest of the trims on Friday night, I'll post pictures!  Till next time, Kathy

FNSI and a sneak peak coming up

I am a 1st timer for FNSI (click on the FNSI button on the right or click on  and come join the fun).  I am so excited since I am working on a ton of things.  All the blocks are finally finished for my daughter's quilt and if I can get that battery charged tonight, pictures will be posted tomorrow...HOORAY!  I am also working on a small banner for her candy bar, small table runners for the reception table and a ring bearer pillow!  Oh. My. Gosh.  I think I'm hyperventilating just thinking about my to do list.  Don't forget to click on the FNSI button and join!!!  It's going to be fun.  Till next time, Kathy

Exciting changes in the wind.....

With prayerful thought, I made the decision to step down from nursing management and go back to emergency nursing!  I love being a nurse and am looking forward to only working three 12 hour shifts.  This past year has been very busy in our home....from my twin boys graduating high school, my daughter graduating college and about to be married in October and also working every day with the responsibility of 24/7 call for my department I had absolutely NO time for quilting or blogging.  So if you haven't already figured out, I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!!!!!  I took some pictures of a few of the quilt blocks for my daughters quilt (one of her wedding gifts), but since my camera battery was dead I used my cell phone and the quality was awful....Maybe tomorrow I will get some pictures up.  Her colors are aqua blue and red, so I used the Bliss line and am really happy at how it's turning out.  Till next time (which is gonna be a whole lot more often now),  Kathy
