Orca Bay RED - 2/21/12

I am such a SLOW POKE Quilter -

It took me a looooooooooong time to tell you the story of Orca Bay RED -


I wasn’t so much “teasing” as I was “stalling” -

I needed to string it out so that I had "time" to sew -

And I sew S - L - O - W - L - Y.

I really do ENJOY the PROCESS -

But -

It takes me a long time to do the actual sewing -
re-arranging -
put the blocks up -
take them down -
take photos as I go along -
try to sew some more -
put that up -
sew some more -
put that up -
change my mind -
take it down -
put it back up -
and then there's the photo downloading -
editing -
post writing -
editing -
editing -
editing -
editing -
before I can post -
hoping to avoid something -
that sounds like a jumbled mess.

Toward the end -
I was getting tired of working on it -
And I knew that if I dropped it -
I would NEVER pick it up again!!

So it was NOW or NEVER - ;))

I got my "second wind" -
When I decided to add RED borders -

So I just kept plugging away -
Hoping to finish it up by the end of the month.

I'll show you later -
How I did the borders -

After I clean up my sewing room -
Looks like it was hit by an Orca Bay Hurricane - ;))

Then -

I want to play with my free-motion stuff -
I have a pile of small tops that I want to use for practice -



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

  1. Congratulations on your finish. I had to set it aside while I work on a Kool Kalediscope I am taking a class for. Back to Orca as soon as that is finished.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
