Where Does The Time Go?

Where does the day go?  I got up at 6:30 this morning, didn’t get dressed and immediately went to the sewing machine to finish the quilting on my new Words piece.  Some days I do that.  I stay in my pajamas. I planned on working on this art piece yesterday…but my husband has been rained out of the field since Sunday afternoon and so I never got to touch the quilt.  After he went to bed last night I worked on it, then got the quilting and squaring up done this morning.  I am still adding paint highlights to it, but here is a sneak peak.


It is called “Sticks and Stones…but Words Will Never Hurt Me”.  This is my second one.  Rusted cotton sateen, screened designs with procion dyes, handwriting, stamping, and painting.

Oh yeah, Facebook and Twitter now “demand” my time too.  My Twitter name is Katheeann if anyone wants to follow me. I spend too much time checking them since I am new to them.  I always do that with something new…play with it a lot.  I also got a good deal on a new Sony camera yesterday…I’ll probably play with it a lot too.

After the quilting is finished, now I can move the sewing machine back to my messy workroom.  I set the machine up on the kitchen table to quilt anything larger than a tablerunner because I don’t have the table room in my “studio”.  Now I can clean off the table so my husband doesn’t go crazy.  Not that we eat there…we eat in the living room in front of the tv.  The kitchen table is not needed for much of anything.

I need a whole day to clean up and possibly organize my sewing room.  Maybe tomorrow?  Unless I have to mow grass or go to town or clean the house.


  1. I love how this piece is turning out! Can’t wait for the big reveal!

  2. Hi Patty, and thanks. I probably could reveal it now…but just holding off for a bit til I decide where it’s going.

  3. Patty, I’ll try to get it photographed tomorrow, maybe? Need to finish binding first…and then email you a pic, OK?

  4. Kathy, how did you do your writing? By hand?

  5. Hi Linda, Yes, I do most of my writing by hand. I do have a Thermofax screen with handwriting, but I don’t use it that often. When I am writing across a whole piece, I love to use the Zig calligraphy pens, but these days I can’t find them for sale anymore, so now the hunt will be on for a similar substitute.

  6. I was only in the craft store yesterday and for some reason those calligraphy pens were calling my name. I didn’t buy one but I think I might do, and give the fabric writing a try. Thanks for the inspiration!
