Playing Catch Up!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  So much has been going on!  I am taking a class through work online and that seems to have been taking up a lot of my time.  And, Gladys came home and so I was so eager to get sewing, well…I just have been neglecting Simply Delighting.  At any rate, I hope to post an update of August projects and my September WIP list…but not before sharing what I have been working on!

When I was at my parents for Labor Day, my Mom dug through her craft stuff and she found a bunch of unfinished projects (wonder where I get it..hmmmm).  This is one that she had finished but didn’t do anything with.  She was going to make pillows out of this block (and the other 8 she had), but never got around to it.  I quickly snatched it up from her and said…I can make a throw quilt with that!  So…it now has become my unfinished project.  If my computer wasn’t acting bad, I would post a picture of the finished quilt top.  I will do it tomorrow from work where my internet is stronger.  My Mom is going to buy the batting and back fabric and when I am there next time we are going to quilt it up and bind it. 

Now….on to some housekeeping details:
