And another one

This wall hanging wasn't a UFO for long. I made it this summer. I know alot of people don't care as much for the computer LAs but when I saw this done at a LQS I could not resist it. The back is just as cute as the front. I have already given this to my DIL. They love Halloween.
Today we saw some dolphins playing in the ocean. We also saw a sea gull eating a little fish. He was only about 10 feet from us. He sure had to swallow alot.

Another UFO finished

You may remember this one. I worked on it when we were visiting Yellowstone last year. I was sewing the binding down and came to the last corner. Somehow I messed the corner up and had to fix it. Well it sat for over a year before I fixed the corner and sewed down the last half side. I hate doing binding so I really put off doing it. I know I am bad. It is just nice now to have it done.

On vacation

Blogger won't let me edit this picture so bear with me.

We are taking a vacation to Myrtle Beach. This time we are staying for 2 weeks. The weather so far has been great. We have another week to go.

Before I left I was on a roll of finishing some UFO's. It really felt good!! Above is my Crazy Compass. It was all made in the embroidery hoop. It was on my design wall for over a year.
More UFO's that I got finished tomorrow.

I'm back

I am alive and well. I just haven't felt like blogging. I do have lots to show you.

This is a quilt I made for my granddaughter Katie. She had her first communion. It was the first time I did raw edge applique. Next time I will try a smaller project. It is a cute little girls quilt.

Friday night sew in

I didn't get as much done as I wanted. Should have turned off TV. LOL

I did get a table runner sewn. It was already cut out. I just had to put it together and quilt it. Super easy on.

Then I decided to do the first block of the Civil War Tribute quilt. I haven't done any quite this hard for awhile. It seems like I ripped an awful lot. Plus cut some pieces wrong. I have another one to make for this month. The first was an 18 inch block the second one is 12 inches. At least this on should be easier.

I probably didn't post in time for any drawings. I wasn't feeling good again yesterday.

We got up at 6 am to go watch Lucas play hockey at 7. As we left the rink I started getting an upset stomach so we came home and I went back to bed. I slept most of the day. My face was still itching and burning.

Today when I got up my face was worse. I could look down and see my checks. Eyes were still swollen. I look like I went on a week drunk and got beat up and left for dead. Tonight my eyes are better but my face still burns. I guess call the Dr. again tomorrow.

I have had on thing after another since Dec. 30. I probably have my deductiable in for the year already. I just want everything to get better. Vacation is fast approaching and I want to be well.

Sorry for the pity party. I am just tired of it.
