Diary Quilt Tuesday

I almost forgot that today was Tuesday. Here is my block, very simple yet colorful. Last week I met my friend Judie and we went to the quilt show together. She has recently moved to Annapolis, about 2 hours away so we don't see each other as much as we used to. This block is such a good representation of our friendship, colorful, we always have things to talk about.....simple, we always pick up right where we left off........enduring, we have always said we thought we were seperated at birth. Have you ever met some one that you just feel like you have known them all your life? I know we will be friends always and forever, love you Judie!

I wasn't going to show you this until it was done but I have nothing at all to show in the sewing department. These are the blocks we made when we had a play date at Sujata's in January. I was going gang busters on these until I had to get going on the other quilt, which has a name Zigzag Diamond, but I still can't show.

I have the center quilted but am not making much progress because....

I am in cleaning mode and I just have to go with it! This is the next room to tackle, our office. It is going to take a few days, maybe even a week. Again it doesn't look this bad but I started cleaning and then took pictures.

Ugh my husband's spot, it needs some big time work. So the closet is cleaned out and now I need to go through the files. Maybe if I did it on a more regular basis it wouldn't be so bad?? If anyone has some great tips, let me know. Like how do you keep your husband from boogering up the room with their awful "decor"?



  1. Wow, that is some huge office. But then I have a big sewing room so I "allow" my husband to fill the study with all his car decor. I guess he should be allowed one room in the house. :)

  2. What a cute diary block this week. Did you see that the block says "hi"? Second row; third column. I've never had a friend like you've described, but it sounds wonderful. I've always hoped for a friendship like that. Sorry I can't help with ideas to keep up a home office. Thankfully, we don't have one of those. But gosh, this space looks like it could be an awesome sewing room!

  3. I really like the diary block. The fabrics are so sunny and bright!

  4. Love your new block - great colors as usual.
    Your quilting looks great on the piece you made at Sujatas.
    I wish the cleaning bug would bite me.
    I have a lot to do.
    Started with the windows, I can see more clearly now...

  5. I'm glad you had a great day with Judie. Love your block. I cleaned windows today! Bet you're surprised.

  6. I really like the colors of your diary quilt it is a cheery one and cute.
    Oh my office looks a lot worse than your office, I shudder when I think how much of my hubby's filing I've got to do.
    I'm busy with my second yellow penguin phone cover for my girls Tracfone LG800G cell phones, because Tamara has already scratched her touch screen and they cost me $50 ea. Actually I only pay $5.99/40 minutes /month for each kid using Tracfone's family value plan, I thought you might want to know this as I can't find a cheaper plan anywhere else.
    As a novice quilter I've noticed that if I put cute animals motives on my ipad/nook and phone covers, they always draw attention and remarks and bring the best out of people.


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
