ok, ok, so you want to know what I was working on....

Yep, you caught me out! I was beavering away on some hand stitcheries! I am working on my 2nd quilt from Leeanne's House, Ruth's Quilt it is called. BUT this one will be machine quilted!!!
There are 35 stitcheries to do, and are quite relaxing to work on while listening to tv at night time.
All my fabric is cut and ready to go, but I do think this may be the last large sized quilt I make with stitcheries in it. I think from now on it will be limited to wall hangings!
So there you have it. I have now (publicly) officially broken my New Years resolution I made a couple of years ago. I vowed I would not start or work on more than one quilt at a time, and here I am, with .... ah........5..........quilts on the go! Well I bet some of you have broken new years resolutions too!!

Oh well, I'm a very happy stitcher!!

I love it....of course! How can you do this? How can you do this AND go to school and swap with me and those "other" women! How do you do it?

Don't they say "variety is the spice of life"?? You get to switch to stitching another quilt when you're sick of this one ... and so on ;o). Sounds like a great plan to me :o)!!!!
Hugs,

Thankyou for leaving such a nice comment on my blog. I love the idea of stitched 'tags' on a quilt. I don't think it matters how many quilts you have on the go, as long as you enjoy yourself and they get done eventually. Happy stitching.

Looking forward to seeing this :) I've made 'ruth's quilt pattern' too and called it Beck's Flowers. Loved doing the stitcheries, its my snuggle quilt on the couch. Its really fast to put together and I did large stippling machine quilting around the stitcheries. Fun and Fast - my kindof quilt. Hugs Jx
