Slllllooooowwwwww Project.

It's me again... 

Three months later here is the grandchild's thingy.. it is almost large twin sized and I'm hoping to get the top ready by the end of this weekend.

The back is also going to be pieced but large pieces so it should go quick.

I have some Indian Elephant fabric that I'm using for top and bottom borders then another thin black border then another of the tan borders.  That should put me at about the right size.

After this one is on the quilter my daughter is going to work on finishing her quilt top while I get this one quilted.  I have so many more projects almost done and half done.  I just need time to stop moving so fast!

Does Anyone Still Read This?

 Greetings and Salutations!

Yes, it is me, that quazyquilter person.

So I am thinking about starting to blog again since I have actually decided to make time to be creative again.  It is strange how life can grab you and suck all of your energy isn't it?

I have been finding time to get into the sewing "area" and get a bit of organization done and a quilt going for Korben's 8 year quilt (a little late).  He wanted a hedgehog sitting on a couch playing a video game..... uh?  I was willing to do it but then he asked if I had started it yet the last time we visited via Zoom and I told him that designing the pattern was taking me a long time.  He said "Gramma, if that is to hard how about an elephant quilt?" 

Well, I just happened to have a gorgeous elephant panel so I took a picture and texted it to my son who showed it to shorty (who isn't really that short anymore) who said "Cool!"

Hence I am working exclusively on bordering the Elephant panel now.  Pictures will be forthcoming if I look at my blog hits and see that anyone actually read this.  If no one does then I might or might not try to get back into this blog thing.  

Anywho, that is all from here for now.

Time Keeps on Tickin' Tickin' Tickin' ..

 .... into the future..... 

I am showing my age I guess. ­čśé

So it has been at least a year and half since my last post.  I would like to say it is because my life is busy and exciting, but that would not be true.  

I am now full time work from home, even after this pandemic is over that will be me unless there is a meeting in office that they MAKE me go in for.

I am really happy that is the case.  I have gained back two and half hours each day of commute time.  You would think I have turned that into sewing time.... not really.  I do sew now and then.  Still working on quilts here and there but mostly now I am sewing masks for anyone who I know who needs them.

I have taken up the sourdough craze.  I have done sourdough at various times over the years, this time I have been at it since this whole thing started in March.  I make a simple country sourdough loaf, I make sourdough cinnamon rolls, sourdough soft pretzels, jalape├▒o cheddar bread and pancakes.  Hubby makes these awesome sourdough waffles like no waffle I've ever had.  SO GOOD!

Here are some things I've made in the last however many months.

Grandson's Spidey quilt.

Chris from work - Retirement quilt.

My youngest son's, fianc├ę's snuggle quilt. 

That's it from here for now.  I'm going to try and be better about this, I really am. I think. Maybe.

What?? Where Does Time Go??

Wow.  Just Wow.  

It has been 2 years since I have posted here... well, almost.

I have been doing things here and there, where the pictures might be I don't know but I will see if I can find some...

I made this baby quilt.. didn't take a finished picture.  It was for my grandson's cousin when she was born.

We remodeled our bedroom.  Didn't take pictures of that but it is a lot nicer than it used to be.

We spent 9 months building an 12x16 small shop building for my spouse to have all of his wood working things in a space where he could set it all up and have it organized.  It has a gabled roof and he has 2 lofts, a small 4 foot loft and an 8 foot loft, both about 5.5 feet of head room.  He also has his photo box and stuff out there.

The other big news is he retired at the end of September, I will continue to work since I like my job and we need health insurance. 

I'm currently working on this for my friend Jannett.

I have a wedding quilt that I messed up in October of 2017 that I finally figured out how to fix so I'm doing that for the 2nd anniversary of the couple.  Pictures when it is done....

I repaired and delivered this to the little girl who is now a young lady that I made it for.  She was just 4 or 5 when I made it and now she is 21!  When she told me she still had it but that the backing was shredded I told her to bring it to me and I'd fix it.  The top was made from a cotton/poly blend so it wore very well.

I'm also finishing a couple of things that are almost done that I pulled off the shelf to list on Etsy.  Husband person is making wood crafts and he sold his first fountain pen so he is pretty excited to get more things made and listed.  We are also listing some of my daughter's bead work.

This person started Kindergarten 2 weeks ago and will be 6 at the end of October.  

Aunt Tasha likes to play with Snapchat...

Pictures of his quilt after I give it to him.  I make him one every 2 years.  Baby quilt was wild animals:

Next quilt was Avengers/Batman.

The 4 year quilt was a Fleece with Cars on one side and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the other.

The 6 year quilt is Spiderman on the front and the Solar System on the back.  I let him choose so the quilt every 2 years is representative of what he is into at the time.

There were a lot more things that I did and made, small things.  A lot of time working and building his shop building and gardening and Bible study and Ministry.

Seems like the older I get, the busier I am.  I thought it was supposed to be the other way around? :)

That's it from here, for now.
