Please be BRUTALLY honest!!

OK! SO we all know I AM A NEWBIE HERE!! LOL! I swallowed REAL hard and signed up for a Name Game swap! I have to say one of my most difficult parts is my partner does not have a blog, or a flicker! So I had VERY little to go on! Her biggest thing... She is most proud of being a Mum and a Wife! Well I know she means Mother, and I really wish I had known the names of her kids! So, I decided to do my take on a Mum!! I have only done FMQ on practice items so this really scarred me! But all in all I am pretty happy with my results! I hope she understands this and that I did put my all into it! Even if it is crazy! But I am after all Jo Crazy Mama!! LOL

Mum at the bottom


Finished 20x20

I could not get these to flip (ggrrr) oh well you get the idea. I do still have to press it after finishing up the binding (last night at church! LOL) I decided on the FMQ less was more. I have an editing problem and have a tenancy to add till there is TOOOOO much!!! You know I am pretty proud of it, but y'all don't have to sugar coat it for me! I am a big girl and WELCOME constructive critisism!

OK, now off to work on Honeyman's Swoon! Oh, update on that, I have 2/3's of the top together! One more row to put on! I have had two nights of going to bed and not being able to sleep! After an hour of lying there I have to get up (my side is just killing me these days). On Sunday night I worked on his quilt from 11:00 till 3:30 (AM) I do not like staying up that late, but my body and mind just will not shut down and I hurt trying to stay in bed any longer! Insomnia is hell on my body, but great for my projects!
Have a great day all!!


  1. I think your mini quilt is great. I am laughing though trying to figure out if you really meant it "scarred" you or if it just "scared" you. I guess they can be the same. lol. I'm with you on the not sleeping and pain. I'm exhausted right now.

  2. I bet she loves it...I know I would! Blessings, Marlene

  3. Josie it is beautiful! And the little extra touches you put into it will mean so much to the lucky partner who gets this. I would cherish it if it were mine. Good Job!

  4. This mini quilt is GREAT!! my partner is not of flick and doesn't have much of a blog...but she does have a column in a quilting mag...eeek!! I would be happy with your quilt and i am sure your partner will too. It is really nice
