One and Stich and Two Stich

Today was sewing. Confession time...I don't like to mend and actual I rather do piece from start to finish.
Even alteration I put in the same category as mending.
We need some more king size sheets and that the fact of it.

It been a while since I worked on any quilt blocks. I'm part of a quilt block exchange. Last half of 2018 was just plain crazy.
So I didn't get much out. So now I can. One to two blocks would be good in month or a reasonable amount, that I can handle.

Even had a chance to get the fabric and colors line up to even start a hot pot holders. What I think I will do is do some tops up and let say when I get half dozen or so done. Then I will add the back half.

I'm not sure what colors and patterns I'll be doing the hot pot holders in. Or how many will get done.
But already I have seam to rip out and re due.

I've done ok with eating the last few days. Nothing after 7pm and here is snap shot of dinner. The sauce in middle is Arby sauce

But it might seem strange but I like to eat raw potatoes.

Notice there a tint of pink as sun slowly went down for evening. Sun been going down about 4:30 although it still light after 5:00

Coffee is on


  1. I don't think it's strange at all...I love raw potatoes too.

  2. I can't imagine the sun going down at 4.30! I'm not sure about the raw potatoes Dora, but then I haven't really tried them raw 😊

  3. Lovely skies, raw potatoes! Good on the quilting.

  4. I remember eating raw taters as a kid.

  5. I like a little raw potato too. The sky is pretty.

    ...haven't you had trouble with your gut? Do you eat raw tatties often? You need to read this (para.4).

    I avoid needle and thread. Not my thing! YAM xx

  7. Sewing isn’t one of my skills. Your quilt square is pretty.

    I doubt I’d ever eat a raw potato.

  8. Loving your quilting squares ~ very creative and well done ~ ^_^

    There is a great novel series of books for entertaining reading ~ The Elmcreek Quilters ~ by Chiviareni ~ Wonder if you have read them???

    Happy Day to you,

  9. The good: The sun is going down later.
    The bad: It's still only January.
    The Ugly: Me in a thong. This is unrelated to the first two.

  10. I despise mending but love quilting!

  11. I'm not big on mending, either.

  12. I'm not very good at sewing.
    Love the tint of pink as the sun went down.

    All the best Jan
