A little productive...


...just a little lost.

The kids are gone off to school and I am left alone to complete my oh so long list of projects. Some how it's a little overwhelming at this point but I am up for the challenge.

First on my list was to finish my swaps for Silver Bella. I have to say I am not sure if this is how is was suppose to be done but this is what I came up with for the mini-Quilt swap.

They are 5x7 pieces of material decorated. Sheila of Blessed and Distressed, has offered to host this swap and will put the panels together to form 12 different 4 paneled quilts to share.




I incorporated very little embroidery as my stitching needs refinement, so what I did sew was small.
This post is cut short by the needs of my youngest...he needs me :) Kindergarten doesn't start until 12:45.

I will be where you are next week. Kids gone to school :( and yet, I now will have more time to devote to my business...I think summers are too short, I need more time with them, because they are gone too soon...my oldest is 17 :(
