I remember now...

I remember now, why I don't have anything new to show you, life starts getting busy about now - flowers to plant, yardwork to do, bushes to trim - and I don't even mow/edge the lawns, Mr. Handsome does all that!
I also try to get in some quick trips to visit family, I spent 5 days in California with my mom, sisters and Jeff for Mother's Day Weekend. I am headed to Missouri to see Brooke, Ben and the babies next week.
I am hoping to work on my star quilt tomorrow, hopefully I'll have something better to report!

Moving Along

Life is moving right along over here, I am making progress on this quilt that I am loving, although I am remembering now that medallion quilts are a challenge for me with my not so fussy quilting style - really I can't sew a quarter inch seam to save my life! I was taking a very scant quarter inch seam on this baby, then squaring up each star block to a perfect 4 1/2 inches, but, as you can see, as I sewed them together, I lost some points, and then some more points.  You would think, as this is my 85th quilt, I would be better! Actually I am better, just not as better as I'd like.

It's kind of like me - I am better than I used to be about a lot of things, some days I just think I'm doing great, then other days, I'm a raving lunatic and I realize I still have a lot more to learn and to be taught by this adventure called life!  I just try to keep practicing and being humble enough to ask for help (a very hard thing for me) and I'm hoping by the time I'm 90 or so, I'll be a somewhat fit human being - maybe even fit enough for heaven!  We'll see...
Hope your days are happy and your seams line up!
