I'm still here...

Oh, my last course was a tough one... now it is over and I'm taking Beginner Greek, which is even worse. However, so glad that the sewing machine (and relief for an over-taxed brain) is just a few steps away. Also that some bright fellow posted a youtube that helped me learn the Greek alphabet in less than 10 minutes. It is corny, but it worked. Learning how to write the letters is another story.**

I only finished a couple more blocks for the Lord of the Rings quilt so will take pictures when the third one is finished... it is close. There are two more after that, then comes the challenge of selecting fabric for the sashing/borders, and arranging the blocks. What a journey this has been. I wonder if the time it took has any relationship to the length of those movies?!  :-)

Now and then, Pinterest attracts me away from doing any work. Can you believe all the marvelous quilts that are out there! I've been saving those that inspire me, and have very itchy fingers when I look at them. Btw, I graduate May 15, so hope all that ambition and my sanity are still with me so I can turn some of the vision into reality.

In the meantime, here is a photo that makes me want to sew a tree ...


** I'm finishing a Masters degree online, started it in 1993 so it is a huge UFO project!

That is quite a tree!
I hope you get all of your credits and get your degree on time.

You are a noreply now so I couldn't answer your comment on my blog, but thanks for leaving one.

Wow, a master's degree - that's quite a project, but good for you! How do you find time to sew? But looking forward to seeing more of your Lord of the Ring blocks

My younger son has dabbled in Greek - not an easy language.

Fabulous tree!

I tried to reset Google+ so I'm not a 'no reply' so am sending this message to myself to see if it works. And yes, Greek is HARD!
