Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Monday's Musings

Mondays always catch me by surprise. I guess because the weekends just fly by in a blur. Sunday's are always wonderful, full of faith, family and friends. In the end it feels like we have packed an extra day in there somewhere.

I am so blessed by all the love that has been sent my way this weekend. So Thank You to all my new friends out there. I am trying to send a bit of love back via email. Please have patience with me as I am still new at this bloggy thing here. New friends are a wonderful hug, even via blogger land.

On the sewing/quilting front, I am sad to say that I didn't get much done this weekend.( wound a bunch of bobbins in preparation to quilt is all) I have two quilts waiting to be machine quilted. Machine quilting is new for me. I am a hand quilter. I love hand quilting, it is so relaxing to me and I prefer to have something in my hands if watching tv or a movie. So how did I start machine quilting you ask? Thank you for asking.....We have a baby boom going on in our family and my youngest daughter and DIL were planning a baby shower for my oldest daughter last spring. They asked me to make a lap quilt to be raffled off at the shower. Hand quilting is slow so it would have to be machine quilted. Not willing to pass up a chance to learn something new or a challenge, I did it and throughly enjoyed it!

So what new challenge have you taken on and why? I'd love to hear from you.....Susan


  1. Free-motion quilting is still something I'm learning. I was signed up for a class a couple years ago, but it was cancelled because not enough people signed up. So, I bought a video to learn at home. I wonder if I'm ever going to feel like I've got it, but it is so thrilling to quilt fun motifs. I'm not sure I have the patience for hand quilting, so I admire you for that. I'm sure your quilts will turn out beautifully!

  2. Hey Sue! This so cool! I wish that I had someone to show me how to do tbe BLOG thing. I've started one, but don't really know how to format it. It's robinsnest.blogsot (I think). He he



Thanks for chatting, I love hearing from you.
