Rare Mid Day Post

I am working on one of the "Quilt of Valor" today. Quilting the top is a love/hate deal for me. I love that it means the quilt is so very close to being completed, but I hate the process. Its hard on the shoulders, all the layers of fabric makes me hot (menopause you know) and if you run out of bobbin thread after thinking you have completed and entire roll it makes bad words fly from my lips. Notice how the end of the quilt is draped over the back of the chair. That is where I normally sit, when i work the fabric is folded on my chest. Confession time I am a tata quilter, quilting is a whole body experience.

The reason for a rare day mid post is three fold. I have a couple of posts from other bloggers I want to share and I ran out of bobbin thread unbeknownest to me during the quilting process. AJ the beagle seemed a bit threatened by my reaction, it is time to take a break.

First off here is a post from Gill over at That British Woman blog http://thatbritishwoman.blogspot.com/2012/01/for-british-folk-and-all-of-us-who-are.html. Super funny but so on the mark for those of us that take our financial responsibilities serious. Thanks Gill for making my day!!!

Second Carla over at 1/2 Dozen Daily is having a great February challenge http://halfdozendaily.blog.com/ Check it out and sign up with her if you want to get in. If nothing else follow along next month, the group of ladies from January No/Low spend challenge ROCK!! I would think next month will be just as great.

Back to the sewing machine my body has finally cooled off and AJ the beagle seems to have forgiven me once again.


  1. Debby no problem, I am glad you found it funny, I know I did.


  2. Oh so can relate to "those moments". Oh so glad to know I am never alone. Oh am so sure Bandit is happy to know he hasn't been alone either, as AJ has been around to take those "moments" .... lol. Hope the day goes better and the bobbin stays replenished, Debby.

  3. Thank you ladies, Gill I think I fixed my comment problem from one of the nice ladies on your post today. Not sure yet what I did right but it is working!!

  4. Oh Debby, your blog is so good and so distracting. I may never get my challenges done. I'm coming back for a closer look at those wondeful quilts.
