A Boring Life

After reading a lot of your blogs............

I've come to the conclusion that I must lead a really boring life. I daily read every one's blogs and for the life of me, I can't think of a single thing to say very often. The only time I seem to have anything to post is when I'm working on a project, which isn't too often lately. I went back to school which doesn't leave much time between homework and studying for tests. The teachers make sure that you never run out of tests to take but I'm really not complaining. The one regret that I've always had was not having gone to college and now I am. I consider myself to be very lucky to be going now even at my age.

I do keep checking in on all of your wonderful blogs as often as I can.

So now that I'm done whining, I'll share a couple of pics of the latest quilt that I've been working on. It's a Quilt of Valor that I'm doing for a lady who's been paying a LongArmer to quilt these for her. Some how I can't see charging someone to quilt something that she's donating to charity. I won't however presume to pass judgement on someone else. If this is her livelihood, she needs to make money and probably can't afford to quilt for free. I'm sure I couldn't afford to do too many of these myself.

I did the crosshatching with one of my new Circle Lord templates. I had a lot of fun playing with it. I'm also using my CL to put stars in all the solid blue patches.

I'm hoping to have it off the frame in a few days and I'll post a picture of the finished quilt.

Here's a picture of my current wool applique block. I'm not quite finished with it yet but I'm making progress.

That's all I have for now. Thanks so much for visiting.

Happy Quilting!

Hello Coleen,
Your life certainly isn't boring at all! It must be very nice to be able to go back to school many years after. Your quilts are wonderful, too!

I am sure your life is not boring. We all sometimes thinks others are doing more then we are, but in the end we've just got different interests. And your quilt is so beautiful!
