"Bad Day" turned "Better Day"

Today started out to be a bad day!  Got up not feeling well, went to work and started feeling worse.  Left work after one hour much to my co-worker's disapproval.  Hey, they should live in this body for one day.............. they would change their tune in a hurry!  Anyway, came home, took some meds and slept for four hours.  I got tired of the bed................. imagine that?!  Took some more meds and decided to sew.  I worked on my fall "Peaches and Dreams"!!!!!  That was better than any drugs I know of!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am liking this.  I am not sure if I will do the borders the way the pattern is.  I am using this for a table quilt.  I may change it up a little.  But this is what it looks like so far......................  What do ya think?  Not such a bad "hump day" after all....... HERE'S TO A BETTER THURSDAY!!!!

Hey Everyone!

I guess I did something, don't know what, but I cannot see my followers on my blog or anyone else's for that matter!  How I do these things I will never know.  I have been told that everyone else can see we will leave it at that!  Anyway, I have a new background to enjoy.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  I was busy cleaning up messes that I had let go too long, so no sewing for me this weekend.  I am hoping to get some sewing done this week and post pictures.

I am so excited!  I won something on Jennifer/quilting mom's blog.  Can't wait to see what it is.  She has had a sick little one, so she has been very busy!  I will let you all know what it is when I get it!

Hangin' In There.........

Hi to all my quilting friends!  I am still hanging in there.  Sewing, but not getting much done.  I have had a very busy week.  Working a lot which does not give me much time to sew.  I am working on several projects, but have not finished any yet.  I did get to spend Saturday with my buds, Regina and Val.  It was a good way to end a very busy week!  We are all working on the Peaches and Dreams quilt by Judy L.  It is a great quilt, fun to do.  It looks so good no matter what fabrics you choose.  I am working on Christmas and fall table quilts.  I started on the Christmas one Saturday.  I am also working on a tote bag for a gift for a co-worker.  I need to get the tote done pronto!
Here are some pics from our day of fun Saturday!

The picture below is Val's block.  She decided to do the whole block to see how she liked it.  She has never done scrappy and was having a hard time wrapping her head around!

The happy colors are Regina aka; One i.  She has some really happy daisy prints!  I like it........
These are mine!  I received some Moda fat quarters from my sister for my birthday.  I did not have enough for the quilt, so I stopped at JoAnn's and picked up some more holiday prints to add to it.  I think I am going to like this............!
Here is Regina and Val.  Don't they look happy to be sewing?  We did have a great day.  Many more to come..............yippee!  

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  It is the start of a new week.  Let's get busy and sew.......!
