Musings and a little sewing

Well, it's getting late and I'm tired but I wanted to write a little something, something before I head for the bed.
I have finished piecing 20 Log Cabin blocks for my Block of the month. These were the "filler" blocks and were the last of the blocks and now I can start putting it all together. I have enjoyed this BOM but I'm not sure I will do another one. This was my first and my last. I am not one of those people that needs a kit or someone else to pick out fabric for them just to pump out a quilt. I don't want to have one of the same quilts that 5000 other people have. I enjoy doing my own thing. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with kits or Block of the Months. I think they are big time savers for alot of people. All I'm saying is that I want to be the one that makes my own kit or my own BOM or do my own thing. I like being different or singing my own out of key song....Anyway, I didn't mean to get on the bandwagon or anything about that, I just wanted to say I am finished with my blocks and can get to the putting together phase of the project....Woo hoo. I do like to see a finished project.
Someone once told me (and I don't remember who it was), if you figure out what kind of quilter you are, you will feel better....What I mean by this is: are you a product person or a process person?....Do you just have to see a finished product or do you enjoy the process? Most of the time, I am both. I am a very obsessive, compulsive person. I really have to stop myself and take time to ENJOY myself. I love piecing a block and seeing it come together. It's like a puzzle. If you can just fit that piece together with that other one, it will fit just right over in that little corner. ANYWAY, I am going to have a finished quilt shortly and I will put up a picture soon. I have to find my camera first....

Bargello Bowl

Last night I taught a binding class at the LQS I work at. I had a great time with the ladies and they had a good time too. It is so much fun and I am so blessed to be able to share with other people what I know. I have made so many good friends through Quilting. I really enjoy teaching too. The only bad thing about it is I don't get to sew while I'm teaching....hmmm, I'm going to have to change my methods here. I'm going to have to figure out how I can teach and sew at the same time. Oh well, I'll have to think on this one...After class, I went home and starting cutting more strips to add to my other strips for the upcoming sew-a -thon on Sunday. I'm thinking about asking some girlfriends over so we can sew together. I don't know if DH will like that too much while he's trying to watch the game....Looking forward to Bargello Bowl. Next thing on my agenda is learning how to put my pictures on this blog. I will start that soon.

New to this blog thing

Well, here I am, a new blogger. I have been a "lurker" forever and finally decided to take the plunge and get out there. I have been reading other blogs and never dreamed that I would do this. I have read Knitting Blogs, quilting blogs and all other kind of blogs for about 4 years now and thought I would get brave and share some of my thoughts with others.
