What does the Log Cabin block, Paper Piecing, and a Ballerina have in common?


Absolutely nothing!!!

Except that they have been sitting on my longarm in piles waiting to get finished for a while now.

Below is the Log Cabin blocks.

Island Batik Scraps, I can see the Victoria and Albert Line in there.  November's Island Batik Challenge.  This one would be close to be getting done but I have to do some cutting on these blocks and boy am I nervous that I make a mistake.  I know....get ur done!!!





I have been working on this paper piecing for months, I do mean months.  This is something that I designed. Not much on paper piecing but I am hoping this turns out.  Not a great mathematician either so keep your fingers crossed that it all works.  This project is the October Island Batik Challenge.  I will not be able to sew for ten days this month so I am frantically working on this one.



Then this ballerina, oh my gosh.  I have put more thought into this one.  It seems like all I do is think.  I have embroidered some things to go with it and now I am trying to decide how I can make her name look like the lettering I used in the embroidery machine.  I used designs that don't include the letttering, just the words.

By the way, this ballerina was made by enlarging her and then enlarging her on my printer.

I think I finally came up with something but we get our grandson today.  Oh yes....can't wait.  Maybe while he sleeps I can get her name done just right.  I have had several failed attempts but I am thinking this time might work.



Last night I finished four towels, this is the smaller towel but the larger one took me an hour to do (each).  Done....did I say it was done???  

It seems like the older I get the passing of time just speeds by, so enjoy today and don't worry about tomorrow.!!

More time.... that's what you need. Our days are just too filled. I know that you would have them all done in a matter of hours if someone would just give us an extra week every once in awhile. Your little ballerina is so cute.
