I Shouldn't Be Multi-tasking!

For those of you who know how Blogger works...it's really great, but uploading lots of photos seemingly takes forever.  When I created the show-n-tell posts last week, I confess that I was multi-tasking, taking care of other things while the photos loaded.  It made good use of my time, but in doing so....I omitted one photo from a dear quilter, Sylke, from Norway.  Sylke was the very first person to send me a photo of her completed quilt top, and I feel very badly that her photo was omitted.  Let's take care of that problem right now!!

Sylke from Norway
My apologies, Sylke!  Also...I received another entry just this morning......

Mary Ann from IL
Thanks, again, everyone, for participating in the sew-along.  Loved every moment and I'm looking forward to the next one, starting January 4th! 

Yesterday, I spent the day teaching the 6th Gathering of the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club at The Quilt Merchant.  It is one of my favorite ways to spend the day.  I've made preliminary progress on Journey Five, but haven't really begun working on it in earnest as other priorities have needed my attention.  Right after the first of the year, I'll get to work. 

Next week, my friend Deb will be coming over to sew with me several days to help piece a new quilt that has several thousand pieces!!  Yes...thousand!!  I'll try to give you a little teaser....but can't reveal too much right now.  We'll sew, and sew and then I'll set my sewing machine aside to concentrate on preparations for the holiday.  I know we're all busy doing much the same things....juggling many tasks while humming along to White Christmas, or Jingle Bells. 

Still waiting for the white stuff to fall.....


  1. Nice job Sylke! I remember well the days of multi tasking when our girls were younger..when I think back on how much I accomplished I am truly amazed. Of course I was quite a few years younger...geesh. Looking forward to your next sew along!

  2. Thank you so much for showing my quilt, Pam - and I understand completely that problem with multitasking... ;) So exciting with your next sew along, looking forward to it!

    Speaking of the white stuff - we have snow here in Norway :)

  3. What a fun surprise to see the musical notes in the background fabric. But even more fun to see the "Palmer method" cursive fabric!!
