It's easy to fall behind ...

See what happens when you have a few really busy days ... you get soooo behind. I have over 120 new posts waiting for me in bloglines, and I have been sporadic on the blog! Don't give up on me friends *hugs*

I promised the other day that I'd fill you in on 'the long story' about cupboardy. I worry now that it won't be terribly interesting, but here goes ... Cupboardy was from Little Britain. There was this hypnotist, and he was visiting his Mother in a nursing home. They were playing scrabble, and the hypnotist put the word Cupboardy down on the board. His Mum told him that cupboardy isn't a word. Hypnotist looks at mother and says 'Look into my eyes, not around the eyes, look into my eyes ... and you're under ... cupboardy is a word ... and we're back" Mother looks at the board and praises him on his good score for the word cupboardy. Nurse comes into the room and looks at the board and tells them that cupboardy isn't a word. Hypnotist tells nurse 'Look into my eyes, not around the eyes, look into my eyes ... and you're under ... cupboardy is a word ... and we're back" Nurse looks at Mother and says "You're right, he's not a very good hypnotist". Mother looks embarassed.

I guess it stuck in our minds, because when the cupboards were installed, hubby and I went around all day saying we're all cupboardy.

Quilt group yesterday, gosh I love it! I hand quilted some more on my Christmas wholecloth. It's one of those super pre-printed ones from Holice Turnbow. Let's see how the picture comes out.

I also managed to get all the half square triangles pressed, and made up all the little four patches for the 60 blue and cream blocks. Today I should be able to finish putting them together and strike them off the list!


Have a great day everyone, while I get busy catching up on everyones blogs!

I remember that episode!

Lovely quilting you have there. One day I would like to do a whole cloth quilt - I love the way they look.

Norma said...

Your handquilting on your whole cloth is wonderful!

Susan said...

I love the whole cloth quilt, and your quilting stitches look so lovely and even.

Thanks for the cupboardy story. I can see why it stuck in your mind.

Patti said...

That is a very cute story! I can certainly see why you remember it, and why it made a great comment about your new kitchen.

Your wholecloth is looking so nice. I love wholecloth quilts - they demonstrate how beautifully simple quilting stitches can bring a piece of fabric alive.

Hedgehog said...

The whole cloth is gorgeous! Wish I could come over for an afternoon and ask you for help to get started with hand quilting!

Fiona said...

That wholecloth looks fab - what a nice design.

You are not the only one getting behind with the blog reading. I have not written anything in my blog since monday. But for sure I will do this weekend. My boyfriend is not visiting me this weekend and I will spend the whole weekend sewing :)

are there 48 hours in your day dow south? How do you get it all done? Whole cloth looks great, and i quite like Little Britain too.

Cathi said...

What method do you use for your hand quilting. Barbara taught me last week to quilt in all directions with a thimble and needle glider, but it will be ages before I have such small consistent stitches like you guys! I am working on a small Christmas Wholecloth too...

Cute story, thanks for sharing!

Angie said...

That is some gorgeous quilting, Tazzie! Should I be adding a wholecloth to my verrry looonnng list of to-dos.....Just lovely...and is that a holly leaf that I see quilted there? I love holly! Tazzie, some time past I posted the sourdough recipe that I use...can't remember exactly when that was but if you go back through my posts you'll come across it. If you click on it it will bring it up large enough for you to read/print. :) (I'm actually just a novice bread-baker LOL).

Lovely quilting Tazzie! Do we get to see the top side of it when it's done?

Dawn said...
