Got Coffee??

I feel like I have been dragging lately. Too much to do in too little time. Quilting, knitting, canning, gardening...a whore's work is never done (wink!). I am often over-extended so I don't know if this is just a bad run, or if I am showing signs of wear and tear. I have been trying to make it through the day without coffee....

Note my desk today.... Needless to say the "no coffee thing" didn't work!

Ah! The joys of $2 diner coffee.


Last night (and for several weeks now) I missed MY SnB to go to my friend Edna's house to work on a quilt. Edna and I met last year through work and soon discovered that we both attended Starseed Yoga Studio. Earlier this year, founder Jyoti Chrystal announced that she was being treated for cancer. Edna and I decided to make a quilt to be auctioned or raffled off to help defray some of her medical bills.

We chose colors from the quilt from the colors of the chakras. They are almost all batiks ordered online at equilter. (They have an excellent selection and a very user-friendly design board feature.)

Edna stretching out on the design board (aka the floor).

It is very much a work in progress. We are hoping to have it done by Oct 1 in time for a fundraiser. Wish us luck.

Be well. ~ksp

Just discovered your blog and I'm loving it. I would definitely like to chat with you about your hobbies. A few friends of mine from Northern, NJ are looking to get together for quilting, knitting etc. We'd love to include you if you'll have us. You can find me on Ravelry as well as on my blog: In joy, V.
