From ZERO to TWO.....

Just like that! And all in a 1/2 day's work! Amazing what a person can done when challenged, eh? I love my blocks and can't wait to get some more done. Thanks, Sis!

But I do have to stop for the day, golfing is calling me too!

I've been "Challenged"

Last nite while out on the golf course I got this text from my sister telling me to check my email. Well when I got home I did just that! But before I go any further I should tell you that I faithfully check out her blog that I so much enjoy. She has a cottage on the water where she spends her summers and of course the sewing machine and quilt supplies go everywhere she goes.....needless to say she is busy busy quilting and stitching away and i have had a quilters block and have had no motivation to even get at my quilting projects so yesterday when i checked out what she has been up to, I replied by telling her I was counting on her to inspire me to get back at it!

Well it worked! She challenged me to an hour at a time ....me setting the time and calling her and together we would work on quilt blocks. I replied with a message that I would call her at
6:00 a.m. my time and we would begin, and that we did! Ok we cheated a wee bit! we were having so much fun that we spent 2 hours on the phone together talking , cutting, ironing, and sewing. And just look what I have to show for it!
My first block for my Winter Wonderland quilt! I'm so excited! Thanks, Sis! Love ya!
