Ugh! The reason I haven't been blogging

Oh don't you just hate it when you screw something up so badly that you don't know what to do next so you just put it aside and act like it's not there. That's what I've done and it's gotten me so bummed! I love my orange quilt and while quilting it, I've screwed up. First of all, I should never have chosen to quilt as much as I have... second of all, I just wasn't paying attention! I can't decide if I should take out about 5 or 6 rows or what I should do.... I'll post pics later. It just depresses me so I haven't been wanting to blog about it.

I have been working on that advent calendar and that's going along good so far. I've also started a strip quilt that looks like the one on Old Red Barn's quilt along. It's all red and white and I love the fabrics I've chosen! Again, I'll post some pics later.

Still here

I'm still here... I just found it was boring to blog more about quilting my quilt that I'm doing straight lines on yet again. I'm still working on getting it done. It's taking a long time but I'm still pleased with the texture and how it's going to look in the end. I'm also coming along on my 9 patch. I honestly haven't been sewing long enough to have a really good stash of fabric to choose from so I may have to buy some fat quarters while I'm at Joann's today to work in some more fabric.

I'm also going to the fabric store to look for some Christmas fabric as I've added yet another item on my to-do list and that's an advent calendar. It's so cute! I'm not really a fan of the pink in Christmas things so I think I'll stick with more traditional red and green but I love the idea with the pockets!

So as a review, right now I'm working on the 9 patch quilt, finishing quilting the coin quilt, I started on a red quilt (not sure where that's going or how big it will be... totally winging that one), and I've also got a pair of pajama pants for my daughter that I have yet to finish.

I will try to get some pics of my 9 patches posted here later today or tomorrow.
