days just slipping by

I cannot believe how fast the days just disappear! I spend lots of time on job apps. then there is the chores to do, otherwise this little house looks like a tornado has gone through. Usually by 11 or 12 I am free to do some sewing. Yesterday I finally started quilting my Orca. This is not exactally an easy thing when you  have no floor space to spread things out. But I have a very useful and portable quilting frame that I use to pin baste.

It took about 2 hours when all was said and done but I finally had it pin basted and started qulting it, I was in a bit of shock because miss Tilly ignored the whole process. This is unheard of I was getting a little worried but she was fine. Later I bundled the whole thing on top of my sewing table so I can stitch some more today, ahhhh now I see she was just waiting!

I think it passed inspection. Add in the fact that beautiful Kimber got the whole couch to herself and all were happy!

Now this is wonderful! It gave me time to play with my little scrappy baskets without tripping over any furry friends.
During the process I decided I need to stitch these into groups of four then put them up again! So last evening I got a few of the groups done. I think it will take me a few weeks to get them grouped!
