I am finishing up a flag, a quilted flag. I have to bind it. Then I have to figure out where I am going to put it. I have been delaying finishing it. It is a bargello flag. I first saw it at Pine Tree Quilt Shop in Salem NH. Then Yvonne was making one, and of course I just had to do it. well it was bigger than I remembered the sample being in Pine Tree. I will post a picture when it is done. I take my time doing things because the fibro can just exhaust me. Pain is unbearable at times.
Woody is helping me right now make the binding. He is waiting patiently for me, well, NOT! He is running around with it so I had better go. All the best, Erin and Woody.

Dick and Jane

Has anyone seen the new lunchbox and kit that is available for the quilt kit Dick and Jane by Michael Miller Fabrics? It is adorable! Of course it brings me back to my childhood and remembering how to learn how to read. Maybe that is why I love animals so much. That is it, I have convinced myself of it. Once I saw Spot, that was it! Well anyway I am going to make that quilt one day. Memories as Katie would say. Good "Karma"! I am staying positive and enjoying life. Anyone want to make it with me, if so let me know.

Of course Woody (A/K/A Spot) will be by my side!
All the best, Erin

Hi there!

I am just finishing unpacking after moving from our house of fifteen years to a small apartment fifteen miles away. What a change. The sewing and quilting is what will keep me somewhat happy and having a new addition to our family, Woody! Gary and I took him in, he is a year old. He will be my quilting buddy. Yvonne is and has been very kind to me, giving me her sewing and quilting things that she didn't need since she got her new $5,000 quilting machine named Fiona! So I can now quilt better and enjoy it more! She is giving me her stitch regulator, what a friend! I am so fortunate! It is still going to be a while before I can work on projects without feeling cramped in here. I am only able to work a couple hours before I get exhausted and have to rest. I try my best and do what I can. But knowing it is there if I want to sit and dream about it is all worth it.
My mom gave me her car also which I am very thankful. I can go back to my hometown and see her when I can drive and am up to it too. It is very appreciative. Gary and I are very lucky. Every day I thank them in my prayers and pray that they have a good day and are happy.
Pray for our troops please. All the best, Erin and Woody.
