Decisions Decisions!

Just when I think I have narrowed down a block…I see something else!  But I promise that I will have a post with the block and desired colors right after Christmas!

Right now, I am furiously trying to finish quilting a Pokemon quilt for my 8 year old grandson.  And the end is in sight!  Binding is next…I like that, I can relax in front of the television and watch a movie!

Ok, just a little bit about me…wife, mother, gramma, and maker, mainly a quiltmaker, but I do love to create art journals!  This past year has been amazing and has kept me hopping! But it has been lots of fun!  I am really excited about joining the Bee Inspired Stash Bee, this is something I have never participated in.  It really sounds like loads of fun! And I love meeting new friends from all over the world. It’s rather like the pen pals I had as a kid.  I have done traveling art journals that have traveled to many countries, so I know this is going to be great fun!

I love cats…no, I am not a crazy cat lady!  I only have one, our sweet Bella.  She was a sweet little rescue kitten we adopted 3 years ago.  The poor thing was very sick and had been shaved, had to wear a sweater to keep her warm!  Now she is a big fat cat…about 20 pounds and oh so furry!  We think she might be a Siberian or a Maine Coon, and being a ginger and female is rare.  Only 80% ginger cats are female.  So, that is where the title of my blog came from…my best helper!

We are getting ready to go on a bit of an adventure in January and February….heading to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to stay for a couple of months.  We have a small RV, and this will be a new experience!  I keep telling myself…tiny house…you can do it!  As long as I can cart my machine around, I am fine.

OK…a few more things….

  • Favorite foods:  Mexicanfood, pizza and chocolate
  • Favorite television:  Project Runway
  • Favorite book this year:  All the Light We Cannot See
  • I do like to cook and bake, read, draw, and garden

Here are some of the blocks I am loving right now!

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas!  I look forward to getting to know all of you!

grace and peace…Sharon

  1. Hi Sharon! So wonderful to meet you! Our Lucy is also a rescue–don’t they make the sweetest pets? Can’t help you with a decision about your block…I love them all! I’m sure whatever you decide you’ll love. I’m sure your grandson will love the Pokemon quilt–when I get to the binding stage, like you, I love to sit and relax in front of the TV while I stitch it down. I’ve done machine binding only once and I may do it again, but the results were only okay. Guess I like the hand work. I too love Project Runway. Watched the finale last night and I’m looking forward to PR Jr.

    I’m so excited about this bee!


  2. Thanks for sharing a bit more about yourself. 🙂 And for the introduction to Bella, she looks like a very sweet kitty.
    Those blocks look fun, I can’t wait to see what you decide on.
