Remember when

I mentioned that I had thirty days off and time was ticking away....I could hear the clock....tick, tock, tick, tock........and poof!  It was all gone!!

And I didn't even get to pull out my machine at all!!

But, I was able to get some major sorting, cleaning, and organizing done in the house.  With seven people, four of which are little girls that make huge messes, this really needed to be done!  I'm so glad that monkey is off my back.

Now, I'm back in classes already.  I'm hoping to pull my machine out this weekend to do the binding on TL's quilt and piece together a few blocks for some applique that needs to be done.  Maybe I'll be able to quilt that wallhanging for the living room.

In our homeschool, we're learning about the colonies.  The project that the girls need to work on is a quilt for their baby dolls.  They both sew pretty nicely.  Princess has nice small stitches that are pretty even.  Bug-a-bug has nice stitches although a little big-she is only seven after all.  They picked out their own fabric and are doing a nice job. 

If anyone knows where I can buy small thimbles I'd appreciate it.  The extra small adult ones are too big for my girls. 

Have a wonderful and quilty week!


  1. Thanks for coming by my blog. I tried to e-mail you back but you came up as a "no reply" blogger. I like to sew with my granddaughter and grandson although he is only three. He loves machines though and likes to sit on my lap and help guide the fabric in the sewing machine. Too cute.

  2. I'm sure I've seen some tiny thimbles. I'll keep my eyes open if I see them again. They may hve been at the big quilt show which is coming up in a few weeks. I remember wondering who could use such small ones.

  3. Gee, maybe that is why we don't learn to sew with a thimble when we first start sewing and then when we get older they are so awkward to use. I hope you can find some. Looks like the girls are having a great time.

  4. I picked up several small sized thimbles at the quilt show yesterday and would like to send them to your girls.
