I'm Sewing!!

Oh my goodness...it's friday and I can't honestly tell you where this whole week went! But to give you an idea, I'll give you a run down of my day yesterday....

I left home at 9am to head to the clinic. I stopped at staples to get a file folder, and then made my way over to Northeast Massage Therapy. My 10am client was really great, mother of 3 school-aged kids who just needed a massage and to 'zone out' for a while. I can sure relate!

I didn't have another client scheduled until 6:15, pm...so I left the clinic, came home, stopped on the way to mail a package back to a customer via UPS, and spent the next 4 hours working on another customer quilt, finished that at 5pm, headed back to the massage clinic to meet up with my last client of the day....finished that massage at 7:15, locked up, and went to taco bell with one of the other therapists who had also just finished up for the day...wolfed down a chicken quesadilla, came home, threw myself in the hottub for a soak, and then straight to bed. If there is any wondering on why my blog isn't being updated daily recently, this is why!

However, today is alot lighter. I'm working from home just being 'on call' in case someone needs to call me in.

Every once in a while I get a special client with special requests and today I'm working on one of those! It's lovely! Elizabeth had beautiful embroidered blocks of teacups with flowers in them....and she asked if I would set them into a quilt for her. She sent fabric, and the pattern, and today is the perfect day for me to start sewing the blocks! The embroidered blocks are going to be set with alternate basket blocks made from the fat eigth assortment she sent me....it sure has a spring feel to it and I am so anxious for spring!

I tried to find a pic of the whole quilt online, but I couldn't find the link.

Off to sew basket blocks!


  1. Bonnie you made me tired just reading about your day. I hope that you are able to get into a routine soon. Take Care.

  2. Work is a good thing to have but it sure gets in the way of sewing. Glad to hear you have a day to yourself. Can't wait to see the beautiful quilt with the embroidered teacups.

  3. Glad to hear that you had a more relaxing day. The quiltcolours are so nice, I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quily.
