TTMT #251 - jewells68 - December 26, 2017 - Swaps to Sea Turtles

Yes, I'm still in my jammies, don't judge me, it's my day off! In which I talk about swap mail and the latest installment of "what's on the contraption?" See you in 2018!

PS: My coworker actually cried when she opened the table runner package and asked me if she could hug me ( she knows I'm not a hugger so she asked permission).  Then after she got home she immediately made a place for it. I think the kitties approve.

TTMT #248 - jewells68 - December 5, 2017 - Inside "Studio J"

See my newly rearranged “Studio J” in which I now I have a piecing/basic sewing/fabric wall, design wall, and giant contraption wall, as well as a cutting area that takes up the middle of the space. Stay tuned to see if it stays this way or if I… *gulp* … tear it all down and start over.

TTMT #247 - jewells68 - November 28, 2017 - King's Crow Goodbye

This was a rough week for us. Fluffy was having some difficulty getting around starting on Monday, then seemed to be getting better, but on Thursday afternoon, she seemed to suffer some sort of major stroke and we had to say goodbye to her on Friday. It was very sad, but because Phebe was home from school for the holiday, we all three got to say goodbye to her. So i am glad for that. She has been worried all semester that Fluffy would go while she was away at school. Sunday I took Phebe back to university.  We are a house in a combination of mourning and adjustment. Phebe was 4 years old when we took Fluffy in as a stray kitten. So she's been a part of the family most of Phebe's life. We are already missing her and remembering all the quirky ways she had.

Yes, you read that title right... the Project of Doom is as good as done! *throws confetti* Once I get done stitching on the hanging sleeve it will be on to my great nephew's quilt... he should arrive any day now.

Things have been a little quiet in the Project Room... except for another blankie I made for Project Linus. That's 7 for the year so far!

Brace yourselves, it's a long one, sorry! A finished blanket for Project Linus, a stack of orphan blocks... and a whole lot of chit chat.
