Weekend Update – June 7-10

DSCN1589If only our weekends really were 4 days long, like the window for sharing a link as part of Weekend Update, right?

Although the designated topic weekend is NEXT week, I probably will be sharing some thing un-quilty, because lately the quilting isn’t going so well.  I finally have a functional Bernina again and thought I’d finish the wonky shoo fly doll quilt I was working on at the beginning of the year.

First I ran out of thread. I was using “lace white” and didn’t have any more, but the plain ole “white” of the same brand seemed close enough and I thought I’d be able to continue.

My cat, Grace Hopper, had other ideas and let me know exactly when she thought it was time for me to stop quilting and go upstairs for the night.  (Coincidentally, she is delivering that same message now, curled up in my sewing chair so there’s no chance I can start using it.)


Add a link from your blog below (or add a post here in the category weekend update.) Have you been quilty or un-quilty this week? I plan to do some gardening and hope that there’s been enough rain to loosen things up abit.  And, with some luck, I’ll finally finish this little doll quilt and be back to share a photo here for show and tell.



  1. Cats are the best companions, and the most annoying, too. =) Love the doll quilt!

  2. Same happened to me when I was working on my applique block. First, I forgot to reverse the template. Then I ran out of doubled up fabric for redoing the piece – and on and on it went. A simple flower took 3 hours instead of a mere half.
    Ay de mí.
