I know, I know...


I haven't blogged in almost a week. But I've been so productive.

First of all, the quilt is finished. It's 46.5" x 54". Machine pieced and hand quilted.

(If you don't remember, this was a group project. Some of my friends who I met through the Amitymama message board worked together with me to make it. It's for one of the children of a beautiful mama whose life was taken by lung cancer. All total there are 8 quilts being made...one for each of her seven children and one for her husband...by volunteers from all over the country. The fabrics for all of the quilts were sent in by members of the message board to one mama who coordinated the whole thing.)

Secondly, my laundry is caught up. Totally. Caught up.

Third, I've been doing soooo much in the kitchen. Baking bread, making granola and a couple batches of apple butter (Although with far less sugar than the recipe called for. Batch #1 got 1.5 cups for a 5qt crock pot full of apples. Batch #2 has no added sugar and is plenty sweet.)

Most of that stuff was either eaten or frozen before a picture could be snapped. So I had to wait until I had something to show, right? Posting without pictures just isn't any fun.

The good news is I'm about to start several small projects: a mini quilt, 2 Annies, and a homespun star garland. So I'll have more fun pictures soon...very soon!

Your quilt project is such a touching project--y'all have the most wonderful hearts to do this for her husband and children.

Very productive indeed! Are you available to get MY laundry caught up? Hey, is it even possible to be caught up on laundry????
