Quiltathon???Not So Much.




Perhaps I should call it Bindathon. That's really what I accomplished most. I just can't seem to settle down when the family is around. There's always something to take my attention away and as we all know, if there is any shiny object placed in front of me I will immediately look at it and never look back. I just need to put a couple of rings for hanging on the kitty and he can go to the recipient for the little one to come. The Christmas houses need a couple of buttons here and there of a festive nature and maybe a Noel and the year embroidered on it. I finished a PIF doll quilt that will find its way to a new home soon.
This was Cow Harbor weekend. All I can say about that is that it has turned into a political and Real Estate festival. Both of those things make my stomach turn so I avoid the whole thing and Judy couldn't have picked a better idea than a Quiltathon this weekend. Normally we would have been in Maine right about now endangering lobsters statewide but since we are experiencing technical(medical) difficulties the lobsters have been given a reprieve.... for now. Roger is on vacation this week so we will try to enjoy the peace and quiet of our small world instead. Maine will have to wait till next year and Oh, how we'll will miss it till then. I'm hoping to get some sewiing done this week but the place I set up is in the kitchen and when it's time for meals I have to clear off everything and then those shiny objects appear and..... OOoooo look a shiny object......

I'll pray for peace and tranquility for you and Roger...and the lobsters in Maine. ;-)

Love the houses! I have their sister, yes? The cat quilt is looking quite adorable...and ready for a new home.

Enjoy your week, dear Dee! ;-)

I absolutely love the Christmas houses!

I just got a good laugh reading this post. Shiny object, indeed. I can't believe that there are quilters who actually do holiday stuff before December. What fun is that?

I do hope that Roger is finding the medical solution to the heart problem.

LOL! You crack me up. Don't check out my blog because you will see how envious I was of your Moda fabrics. I made a quick visit to Fat Quarters. I just want to be like you, Dee!
Love your little quilts! That cat is priceless.

So sorry about missing the lobster... lay low now and there will be time for that later. Good health and long life.

Just think how prime those lobsters will be this time next year. Enjoy your quiet time together *s8

Well, I think binding is pretty admirable. I find it so boring that it doesn't even take a shiny object to distract me!

Your little quilts look great! I haven't given a thought to Christmas decor yet.
Hope you and Roger enjoy your quiet time. Jen

I wish I was in Maine with the lobsters! We've been talking about a trip back to Portland for at least a couple years but so far no time to schedule it.

Binding counts in my book and will be one of my focuses in October as I'll have 4-5 quilts needing their bindings stitched down.
