Being Lazy

Hello Friends,

I hope that you are having better weather than I am...it is so HOT & HUMID here!!

The humidity is a big problem for me uniformity.

I planned on having this project finished before posting, but that did not work as planned...SMILES!!

I have these health problems and Chronic Pain is one of the Major Symptoms. Everyday I battle with becoming ONE with my OLD WELL WORN RECLINER. Unfortunately most days that is where you will find me, however there are days that I win the battle with my lovable chair and I try to pack as many sewing and quilting projects into the hours of that day as my body will allow...LAUGHS!!

But with the high Humidity, the Chair has been WINNING out more!!!

So I have tried to work on little things here and there...










I really like making these little wristlets and they come in handy for so many things!!


I also managed to finish another Pile of Pumpkins wall hanging.



This is the project I wanted to finish A Chevron Table runner. The last one I made ended up being a zigzag more than Chevron...lol you really have to pay attention to how you put your squares together...LOL
BAD THING ABOUT IT...I did not even realize I had mixed them up until I had them all sewed together...I made sure to NOT do that AGAIN!! 

 I cut my squares 5.5" 20 ea. fabric for a total of 40 and then drew a line from corner to corner and stitched 1/4" off line ea. side, to make my 1/2 sq's.
Press the seams opposite directions when stitching together..this will make much easier when lining up to stitch squares 4 together ea.




then I stitched 4 sq pieces together, make sure to press your seams opposite directions when doing this to like up your points perfect. 
After I got everything perfect, I made my quilt sandwich.
 I used coordinating fabric as my backing, and am going to use pink binding to bring out the pink in the top piece.




I have started my quilting but only have gotten the first few seams stitched in the ditch...
I hope to have it finished tonight...God willin...SMILES!! That is if I can stay out of that Recliner!!!

Hopefully next post I will have been more productive...LOL

Until then,  Try to Stitch a Little Each Day...
