The Slump

Quilt I bought at an antique store.  
I have been working on my quilts for the siblings.  It is intimidating too, to face five quilts on a deadline.  All of them are sandwiched (top, batting and backing spray basted together) and ready to be quilted.  One is done and I'm about half way through with the second one.   I sure am loving my Janome Horizon and the space it has in the harp area.  And, I'm loving my new table with the machine inset so that the surface is level with the table.   I can't even imagine trying to quilt these things any other way.  
Made this Hunky Cowboy quilt for my friend Mary
Somehow I'm not taking any pictures these days.  Got to fix that during this gorgeous weather we're having.  

Guess I've been in a bit of a slump.  Don't seem to find anything that strikes my fancy to post.  So, hang in there and I'll try to get myself out and about and enthused about something to share with you.    

Y'all take care. 


  1. Glad you have a good setup to get these 5 quilted. Just get started and the motivation and enthusiasm will return. : )

    See ya soon at our mini-retreat!

  2. oh hang in there sweet lady! It'll come back to you and the quilts are wonderful!

    Big hugs

  3. Oh My!! What beautiful quilts you are making. They will absolutely love them.

    Love your blog header porch picture.

  4. 5 quilts on a deadline would tucker me out as well. :) I reckon there's nothing for it but take it one stitch at a time.

  5. Those quilts are gorgeous! And for the slump ... we all have them at times. It'll come back!

  6. I love the quilt with the boots and your sibs will love the gifts. You go girl...
