Feeling Guilty

I am really feeling guilty now.  I have begun to reorganize and reduce my stash.  That means eBay.  I have put quite a few charts, fabrics and scissors on eBay and have much more to go through.  (Please go check it out--madstitcherdesigns is my eBay name).   But through there I met a wonderful stitcher who has a great blog and it has made me feel so guilty for neglecting mine. His name is Kevin and if you want to check it out his blog is Cabbages and Kings.  I know I should be better at posting but sometimes I wonder if anyone out there is actually reading it anyway.  But at least it is a record of what is going on with me.  

I am getting ready for the weekend as my Stitching Sisters is having our second Quilting class. I am going to try to get the photos taken and share with all of you what I am planning.  Kiki will be here later this evening for the weekend and the rest are coming tomorrow and Saturday.  We always have a fun time and hopefully it will be productive as well.

Until next time...

Sorry I've been away so long...

This weather is really affecting me.  We have had 2 winter storms, an earth quake,  and an aftershock within 2 weeks! ( No damage to us as we were a bit farther away from the epicenter  but we sure felt it!) This is so unusual for us here and it is really taking it's tole on me.  We are still running with emergency heating as my heat pump is going to have to be replaced and I have to figure out how I'm going to pay for it.  This is $7000 that I don't have!

I have been spending most of my time stitching and reading.  I have just finished the model for my newest design which is going to be released on March 15th.  You can read more about it on Lady K Needlearts.  I really enjoyed this one and hope you will like it also.  I also completed a new model for Marty at Carriage House Samplings which is going to be released shortly so keep your eyes out for that one as well.

My Stitching Sisters met at my house for our holiday get together and one of the ladies mentioned an interest in learning to quilt.  Kiki is our resident expert quilter and teacher and she agreed to have a quilting class here for our group.  So I am now taking a quilting class.  We had the first class the weekend of Feb 6th and I will tell you all about it next time as that will take up an entire post and I need to take some photos to share with you. Needless to say we had a lot of fun!

Presently I am back in designing mode and have three new projects ongoing.  So I have been really busy.  I am hoping to do better with my posting but you know me.

Until Next time...

What's with this?

What is with this weather?  We are having a snow and ice storm that you wouldn't believe.  I know it is affecting people all over, but folks  THIS IS SOUTH CAROLINA!  We are not accustomed to this.  I am so cold.  My heat pump went out yesterday (the day before the storm hits, of course!) and we are using emergency heating.  I just hope the power doesn't go out.  I hope you are all safe and warm inside.

Until next time...
