slow slide...

I think I've become one of those once a week bloggers, not that it's meant as any sort of negative. There are everyday bloggers and occasional ones too. Just different styles and people who have lives that require more or less attention. My life these days does NOT require more attention. NO work, kids, or extra loads of anything asking for more attention. Just the opposite rather.

In the battle of me verses the arm/hand muscles I find myself with more and more addle time and this leaves me nothing to show on the blog that I usually deemed as progress. I used to write posts about a complete subject and would go back to that, but it requires more thought than I have to give at the moment. Some where along the 2+ years I've been blogging I moved from that sort of post to the more "journal" posts: Where I am today and what I accomplished over the course of a few days. These days that seems like less and less to me.

So I leave you today with the progress of the last few days. My machine stitching comes along and I'm filling in the pieces for what I've come to refer to as the Kaffe BOM. The BOM can be found here! Be warned it's in GERMAN! But we all know links are in blue so just start clicking!

I'm also almost done stitching all the Christmas ornaments on the tree for the sampler, but those must go slowly. Once I sew the side and the rest of the top together I will add the last remaining ornaments that overlap the seam and viola! the top will be done!

Boy it's been a very long time since I said that! Oh and just in case you thought I'd have one project off the list of current works...I added one more today!! A small quilt I had quite forgotten to get started on. I picked up the magazine today and realized I had forgotten all about this 4 block quilt I planned to start "right away" a few months ago! I already have the first block almost done! This one I'll keep a secret until I have the top..or maybe the whole quilt?...completed before showing.

Carol said...

Judy your quilt is wonderful...Kaffe fabric is so far out of my comfort zone, but I love it. Maybe one day. Love your blocks and those "put together" sections are just awesome. Love your Christmas quilt!

Libby said...

Are you kidding? You're really going to keep it a secret? How can I jump on the bandwagon and add another to my list if you don't share? *S*
I'm really liking your Kaffe piece. I don't think I could work with those colors myself, but I really like how it's looking up on your wall.

Your BOM is really coming along nicely. It is nice to see it all spread out on your design board. It really sparkles!
I am anxiously awaiting a photo of the sampler quilt top. I still have made no effort to start that last block on mine. Always something else calling to me to work on.

"Jeepers,Creepers", that BOM is totally fantastic! Love those fabrics and colors.

The BOM is AWESOME! Your colors are really wonderful! I will make that quilt...some day! :-)

The colors and vibrancy of that BOM are just too delicious for words. I find myself going in spurts on posting. I can do one every other day but then I seem to drop off the face of the earth for a while. Sometimes when I have a lot to talk about I make several different posts and save them for those times I have nothing to say. Nothing? Like *that* will ever happen.

Wow Judy, I spotted your quilt progress on Flickr and had to come over and read all the details. This is really gorgeous. A wonderful combination of traditional blocks and modern fabrics.

Thimbleanna said...

Wow Judy! I love those colors!!!

Zannah said...

I love this - so much so that I rushed to look at the German site to see what was involved....

Malagueta said...

Wow, what a glorious color-quilt :) The patterns emerge and submerge, really liking this!!

Brigitte said...

Judy, what you have sewn so far looks really great, the combination of your bright colors reminds me of little girls playing in the garden. Its a sunny and light scene - I am looking forward your finished BOM.
Thanks for sharing
