Ok.  I give up!  I don't think I'm very sneaky.  
I'm trying .... but I just can't get the hang of it.  
I don't think it'll be long before I'm found out and a comment will be made.  
Or maybe not!  He isn't usually very observant so I'm counting on that.  Even tho he's caught me in the act twice now in the last two days.  
LOL  I'm talking about Don and his blk/wht quilt.  Yesterday I started cutting some of the fabrics so I would have them ready to just grab on short notice to sew (undercover) when he leaves the house.  He had gone on an errand and I figured I had plenty of time to get lots of cutting done.  
....... dang!!  I didn't hear him come back in the house and all of a sudden he was standing in my sewing room door talking to me.  I jumped and kinda laid across my cutting board as if my back was hurting (I was really trying to hide the black fabric)..... but who was I kidding?  I may be fat .... but I'm not that big yet!  hahaha 
He didn't say anything about the fabric and I just went about my business as if nothing was wrong. 
And today he caught me again.....except this time I just went on like I always do and was cutting different fabric for another quilt that I'd already told him about. 
Well I'll keep trying.  I did manage to get two blocks made-cut-sewn back together today while he's outside mowing.  They turned out pretty well if I do say so.  I love this pattern.  It's so simple yet looks like so much work.

This second quilt will be a Queen size.  That's going to be the largest quilt I've ever made so it may take me awhile.
But hey!  I found two extra hours today doing what Crispy did.  She was telling about paring down her blog/computer reading time because she wasn't getting anything done.
Uhhhhh yeah!! Me too!!
So I'm going to give that a try too.  I spend way to much time on this thing.
In fact ......... see me leaving....... back to sewing.......

Oh wait..... If you haven't upgraded your Blogger post editor..... do it!!  It's much better. 


  1. So glad to find your blog. We share the same name, are almost the same age and are both capricorns. I know I'm going to enjoy reading your blog.

    Love the black and white quilt. I just finished two for my grandsons.

    Happy Quilting.


  2. I had to laugh at picturing you trying to block his view of what you were doing LOL.

    Hey how do you upgrade Blog posting? I didn't see anything I needed to click on my blog today.


  3. The black and white quilt is going to be great. Where did you get the pattern? You are right..I can see that it would be simple but looks complex.

  4. haha.. ohhh & i've written grandpa's (TOP SECRET CHRISTMAS PRESENT) book! Its going to be really fun to bind it and make illustrations....LOL grandpa is out of the loop this year haha.

  5. Love the start of Don's quilt. Dan mentioned the other day I had never made him a quilt. I may have to consider that. Keep us in the loop on your quilts!

  6. The black and white quilt is going to be lovely, Linda. It's pretty hard to be sneaky when you're together most of the time, isn't it?
