Time is flying by so fast I can’t believe that Thursday is nearly over.
And poor Max.
Doesn’t he look neglected and rejected?
Don’t worry, we are not ignoring him completely, in fact our daily long walks are usually dictated by what this guy needs to get out and do, and I think he is enjoying all the attention we are heaping upon him.
He’s usually found laid out at the end of the couch like this, or between the couch and the ottoman, or….
On top of Randy’s quilt when she is trying to lay something out like this:
Only…he MOVED right when I was trying to take the picture!
Randy has been working hard on this quilt called X’s & O’s arranged as a swap by our friend Pat who owns Life’s a Stitch Quilt Shoppe in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Close up of one section…isn’t this amazing??
I’ve been hard at work on my “Behind the Scenes” project – blocks are now 50% done and I’m trying to decide now if I want a nap --- or if I want to sew!
Oh yes, and today’s Quiltville of the Day for your memory pleasure:
Carolina Crossroads from Scraps & Shirttails!
If you ever wondered how Quiltville mysteries started, it was with this quilt! Carolina Crossroads happened as I was supposed to be packing up and getting ready to move from South Carolina to North Carolina about 7 years ago. At this time I didn’t even know I’d be WRITING BOOKS. I was working as a massage therapist, and the Hubster’s job transfer threw me for a loop, and I dealt with the upheaval by sewing and sewing and sewing and presenting each step along the way as a mystery clue.
When Kansas City Star contacted me with a book offer, I knew I needed to include this in that book. And the rest is history!
Along with the OTHER area of history –I’ve been writing free patterns and hosting them on my website since 1997. I moved everything to the blog for ease of access in 2005. Today I began the big process of revamping the Free Patterns tab to include a thumbnail of each pattern with the title of each pattern so it will be easier to navigate. I’m part way through, but you can check it out by clicking the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.
I’ll continue to work on it, and it will evolve over time.
Eventually I’d like to see the patterns not just in alphabetical order as they are now, but have a section for big quilts, baby quilts, and patterns that are just “blocks” And maybe a section for previous year’s Leader & Ender challenges.
It will take time, and that is mostly going to happen when I’m sitting in an airport or have time to do a little bit here and there so bear with me.
And yes, I think it is time to go back and sew!
