I'm Still Making Stuff!

Slowly. Very slowly.

You see, I thought I was going to have amazing amounts of time to sew when I found out in December that the boyfriend was being moved to 2nd shift (supposedly temporarily, but I'm not holding my breath!). Trying to put a happy spin on what is really a sad thing.

But what has really happened the past couple of months is a whole lot of moping and a whole lot of TV watching because the house is just too quiet at night. Pathetic, I know. But we seriously haven't spent more than a day apart in probably 4 years? I'm really used to seeing him every day... and during the week I see him for maybe a few minutes in the morning before I leave for work and that's it. UGH. I know. Excuses, right?

Anyway, in spite of my mopeyness, I have been able to get a few things accomplished. Like sewing my Catvent quilt top together:

Isn't it pretty?? I just love how it turned out!

I just need to decide on a backing and get it quilted now. Eee! Can't wait! I have been working on a few more things, too. But you're going to have to wait just a little while to see those ;)

What have you been working on? Linking up to WiP Wedneday with Lee at Freshly Pieced!

  2. Wow, I love how that quilt turned out! I am such a fan of orange at the moment - I don't think it gets enough love - and I'm loving the way you've used it here! So beautiful :^)

  3. Sorry to hear about the schedule upheaval :-( Hopefully it won't last much longer? Meanwhile, love your catvent!
