Quilt top .... ready to build ...

Just finished this quilt top - it's a gift for a friend that is building a colonial house. Not sure when the house project will be done (as it's gone on forever) but this will be built and waiting for that day!

The middle is blocks from Mr. B's Benartex club that I had (all reproduction lines). It came out kind of cute!

Not totally sure blogging is for me ...

since so much time goes by between posts. Some people challenge themselves to post daily, weekly, a special thing on a certain day of the week and manage to do it. I just don't see that being me - now mind you - it's not that I don't have the time - I'm on the computer enough, that's for sure - I just don't think my projects, or me for that matter is all that interesting. I certainly do admire the people who write the blogs I read - and it's a long list.

So ... that being said, I'm gonna keep the blog, but will probably just post finished projects and other stuff "whenever". Sort of a crafty chronical - maybe I'll even rename it - who knows? I think I'm even gonna change the header of this blog ....uh oh - getting inspired (for the moment anyway!).

Here's pics of a couple of binders I made out of upholstery fabric - these will be donated to the craft fair at my friend's church - but I think I'm gonna make more for gifts - they came out really good. I looked for patterns on the net but ended up drawing one up myself by looking at one I've had for years. I'm sure there is a pattern similar out there though.
