Time away = catch up

Oh my goodness, I had no computer for a week, and then was hectically busy for a couple of days and by the time I got back to my page I had several thousand posts to catch up on. I have spent the last two days attempting to catch up on all the quilty goodness I missed.

I admit I also discovered Pintrest, which is my new addiction.  I spent hours trolling through all the quilt/craft goodness. And the home decor!! Oh, I am in love!  If you want to fins me, I think I managed to added the pinny thing to my sidebar or hunt for QuinnyQuilts (that's me!)

So what with one thing and another I have not blogged, but worse... I have not sewed. That's right, not a patch in sight.  I have made a coupe of differnt attempts at doing some quilting, but I'm just not feeling it.

I betta get a move on though, because I have Christmas presents to make.  And me being the slightly crazy person that I am decided that I would make TWO single bed quilts and a QUEEN SIZE quilt...  and I haven't actually started any of these.  Three weeks is heaps of time, right????

  1. Hi Erin. Had wondered where you were. Are you feeling ok?
    Pinterest is my downfall so I dare not go there too often! I can't believe it 's only 3 weeks til christams and I haven't made any of the stuff I was going to either. 3 quilts in 3 weeks will be a breeze ;) Nothing better than a deadline to get your bottom into gear!

    1. I promise you I can feel the deadline! Hopefully I can get things finished enough to be able to give, even if they're not perfectly perfectly finished.
      I'm fine, don't worry about me. :-) Will be back into it and have some makes this week, I hope.
      Now I'm off to hunt you down on Pintrest! Lol

    1. Thanks, F. I'm itching to get back to my sewing, but then I sit down at the machine and lose all energy to quilt. I'm sure the crazy quilt zeal will hit me when I least expect it.

  3. Hi Erin. The holidays have really cut into my sewing time also! But, I've done a lot of "thinking" about what to sew once I have the chance.....maybe today. I found you through the small blog meet...such a wonderful way to "see" others!

    1. Hi Nina! Welcome :-) I love the Small Blog Meet. It's the best idea ever!
      As far as this thinking time business - it's defiantely a neccessary part of the quilting process :-)
