Scatterbrains


About a month ago, I found this Process Pledge, I really liked it and I want to adopt this policy in my blog. Even though I have grown tired of taking pictures, uploading, then finding the words to blog, I want to do this.  I'm not sure how much I even like blogging, but, I do love sharing my work.  I think that there is something wrong with that part of me, why does anyone care?  Why do I think that anyone cares what I'm doing?  Well, I love seeing what people make, but, it is a struggle every time I log in to Typepad.  I guess I will continue to keep this up for a while longer, but, maybe just 2-3 times a month, I may be able to comply.  

I actually wrote a post 2 weeks ago (it took days) and my computer was giving me the business and I couldn't get my pics from the html state and I just deleted the whole thing from frustration.  Ugh, why are we so spoiled and hindered with technology?  I know it's not just me.

I'm working with Lotta Jansdotter's new line, Bella.  I found a pattern called Supper (I do not like that word) Club by Modern Quilt Relish, pretty mod.

 

IMG_5348Chain piecing happens as often as possible.

It went together really fast!  I was surprised!  I sent it away to be quilted by a lady that I love, I just didn't want to make the time.  I struggled with the idea of me not quilting it myself, but that's silly, I don't have to do all of the steps. Gosh, what's my problem??

 

IMG_5356I love it already!

 

I'll be binding it this weekend and displaying it in my local quilt shop, Oklahoma Quiltworks, I also work there once a week.  

 

While I worked on that quilt, my family was out working on a desk for me (plans from Ana White):

IMG_5348I'll be painting it really soon!

It's Kids Clothes Weekly Challenge again!  In the past, I would just make four dresses or skirts, but, I need a miracle to complete four anything (well, maybe I can handle 4 shots of of liquor)!  I had plans to make a skirt with this, but it's Friday now, so not sure that's happening this week!  Oh well, I'll have my own KCWC a different week.  Please check out the challenge, there are some talented people cranking out cute kid clothes, I especially love this guest post by Jessica Grey.

 A few weeks ago, I successfully hosted a meeting at our home for the OKC Modern Quilt Guild, it was fun! Amanda organized a group quilt for a pregnant member, her daughter's room is orange, blue, and pink.  We were asked to do a block that represents who we are, I made a block that took a long time and was fussy.  Also, it likes lemon cake.  The mom-to-be (maybe one today!), Robin was so surprised and happy about the quilt!  That was fun to see her reaction and be a part of that project!

  1. I know how you feel about blogging, but I definitely love seeing all your work, the different fabrics, and just what you’ve been up to (I mean that in the nicest, most non-stalkerish way). Anyway, everything looks so good! I like your Supper Club quilt, and I can’t wait to see it finished! –Maria

  2. Jemellia! You’re in my Reader now! Blogging should be fun, I find that it helps to just jam out a post right when I’m feeling it…I I let things stack up then I start to feel icky. Awesome to meet you!
