Does Life Ever Hand You Too Many Time Challenges?

     Sometimes life can get busy, not necessarily things you want to do; just things you need or have to do! You know what I mean, well like taking the car in for it's yearly inspection or dropping off/picking up the dry cleaning (which honestly we don't have much off at all which is why it's weird to remember to do it!). These things have to be done and well.... I'm the one that needs to do them because I have more available time to do it. O.K., now let me put this in perspective..... my life seems like it's been this way since February! Orrrrr maybe it's that I just didn't have anything to post about. That's probably the honest truth... plus, I haven't been very organized with my time this past year. So, now it's late in the year and I need to get going.
     My granddaughter and I have started a project that I hope we will have done by Christmas. Her other grandma  has a quilt business. She and a couple of her daughters  sew, hand quilt, and sell quilts at quilt shows, local and not soo local fairs etc.  I have a batch of beautiful Fallish (is that a word? by the look of my spell check it is not! Not to worry, this isn't going to be made into a book!) colored flannels I have been saving for a while to make a huge Ragg quilt with. Actually there is plenty of fabric to make several (depending on the size of course). Soooo, what to do, what to do!  Let's make granddaughters grandma's (me included.... although, I will be making that one myself.... granddaughter will have enough to do making the other grandma's quilt) a quilt! Let's just say.... she was delighted! When her dad kind of scratched his head about why his MIL would be making his mom a quilt, she told him... in no uncertain terms. Dad...... grandma makes quilts for everyone!!! And she sells them too. She needs a quilt for herself! One she didn't make! So grandma and I are making one for her! Enough said; the fact that granddaughter is happy to do this.... makes it all worthwild!
Pictures will be forthcoming.
It's coming up on a busy sewing  time of year for a lot of people, make sure your scissors are sharp and you have plenty of pins, needles and thread. It's sew much easier to get projects done if you don't spend your entire sewing time at the fabric shop because you forgot something. Have fun whatever you are sewing.
