Plugging Along

Have you ever had one of those days where you just can't get your act together to sew?  I had a couple.  I mentioned in my previous post that I was trying to make a backing and I just could not get the math right.  Not only did i have a challenge with math but with piecing too.

I was working on the Aurifil Block of the Month.  I love the pattern but it just won't go together right.
I even double checked my measurements.

It is a hot mess.  I am actually taking it apart once again.

I got my backing ready for my quilt.

All pinned and ready to quilt.
DH brought me home some treasures.
These two old ladders I think we will sand a bit, varnish, and put up for sale as quilt ladders.  Love the hardware. 
My lettuce and romaine are looking mighty yummy.  Think it is time to harvest it.  I see some salads in our future. 


  1. I love the backing for your barn quilt! Great idea for the ladders! Maybe you should keep one for yourself.

  2. love your barn quilt and the tractor! your lettuce looks good. mine may be enough for one or two salads

  3. Great ladders! Your barn quilt is great. Love that tractor!

  4. Those ladders will make marvelous quilt ladders! I have issues with math too - crazy to have that kind of handicap and be a quilter, but it can't be helped.... we can't help what we love, right?
