In Your Words Blog Hop

First off I want to Thank 
 Madame Samm for creating this hop for us 
& to Linda for being our amazing talented host!!

I thought a lot about what I wanted to put as my inspiring word.. 
I can think of quite a few but they all circle back
to one word...

LIFE
I mean where would we be with out it? 
I've got a little life within me, 
I've a husband & family who love me,
a job I love,
a passion I wish I could make into a job.. 



It's life that gets away from us..
It's 'life' when you get a phone call from your husband
while your at work telling you his car died 
at the side of the road & he needs a ride.. 
It's life when you realize it's nearly 7 pm at night 
& you haven't finished your blog project..

I love life. 


Such is life? 

Life has gotten away from me when I realized that I haven't shipped out 
the giveaway from the last blog hop.. 

On to this one.. 
I included the fabric I used in the block above, 2 pieces of coordinating fabrics 
& some quilting pins I got at my local quilting stop..

What you need to do:
Tell me about your life..
Has life gotten away from you like it has me? 
I'll put your name in an extra time if your a follower :)

  1. It is a good word. And sounds very familiar to me, lol! (This Mr.Seuss seems a very special character. We don't now him here in Switzerland. But I think I will do a little resurce about him.) Thanks for sharing your word with us.

  2. I think life slips away from in tiny little pieces. And we all would like to have a couple pieces back! Love your project!

  3. I love the fonts.

    I think you don't know nothing about your life until it happens.
    I would have dreamed something different, but who am I to know where to go and why?

    Greetings,
    Tina

  4. What a great word and love the Dr Seuss frase, just pinched it to my Facebook! I love life, my life, and what I don't love about it I overcome or try to change... I love the people in my life, and the ones I don't I let go....

  7. Life is a wonderful and sometimes a dreadful and scaring word. But life happens and for me it has been wonderful most of the time.
    Thanks for sharing

  8. Ah, life - when you are young you want it to speed up, then you hit a point you want it to slow down, and then the elder years you ride it out like 'in a surry with the finge on top'.

  10. My life is not exciting, its not fast, or flashy, but for me its just right :) Love your block and wondered what font you used as it just flows so softly. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi Laura Ann, my life always seems to be at full throttle but I do take time to appreciate everything I have, my DH, Our Boys, our dog Treacle and family. Everyone says how fast the years go but I always think that when I look back and see what I have done in that year and accomplished then I realise how full it has been and how busy it was. So it may got fast but we pack a lot into it!! Thanks for sharing and for a great question. Susie x

  12. Your block is lovely. Life is what we are given and what we make of it so I try to live my life to the full and to be kind and helpful to others. I have a great life with a loving family, adorable pets and lots of interests. Sometimes I moan about it because it gets chaotic because I've taken on too much or neglected things but that's my fault and I try to correct it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great word! My life is busy and things often get out of control....but generally life is great!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Life always gets away from me. Daily I realize there is something I meant to do and forgot or started and forgot to finish. I thought it was an age thing, but maybe it's just because life is so busy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Life is precious. Life has its gives and takes. A positive attitude helps. Thanks for the giveaway. I am now a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Fabulous! Thank you for sharing today.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Life has gotten away from me too. My husband and I spent 3 weeks over the holidays at our son's new house helping him with lots of remodeling. Completely forgot about our regular life! Now we're slowing getting back to a routine, but I'm still searching for my sewing mojo which seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Life flies by... quickly... I would love to steal back some moments from when my boys were small. Your block is very lovely, awesome font.

    Happy quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Life does fly by it seems... but I think this comes from getting older... I was telling my hubby who turns 60 this year that just think how long it has taken you to get this far...and think if you lived just half of that again, how long that would be... he said, yeah but these last 30 would fly by like only 10... or so it would seem. Wonder why that is?

  20. Fun post! And some real words of wisdom. :) blessings, marlene

  22. My life has slowed down and sped up in the last three months with the arrival of my little girl (and third child). I never have enough time and I'm enjoying the precious time I have all at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My life is full of goals I work on every day.

    ReplyDelete
  24. that is LIFE..sums it all, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Life is a great word! I am pretty busy with three kiddos but I try to enjoy every moment and SMILE! Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great word choice. I love life....and all the joys it brings with it!
    Life can get a bit hectic at times; like always...lol. But taking it in stride...thanks for sharing

  27. I am a brand new follower. So glad to have found this hop and so many cool new blogs. conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

  28. Life has been treating me great. I have four beautiful grand children that I am lucky enough to spend time with. One is on his way here now. I have a great new sewing room that I love and am now planning our trip and cruise to Purerto Rico and the Southern Carribean. Life is good.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Life... Life used to pass so slowly now it flies by and leaves me behind most of the time. When I was newly married I would count down and cross off the days till my husband who was in the navy retured from sea. Now to think that same amount of time is here and gone before you know it. Life can be funny you end up eating many words and end up doing so many things that are so diffferent than the life you envisoined when you were younger. I never thought to have 2 teenagers. And one of them to be born autistic with many medical problems. And the other to be born so talented with never a medical problem. Life..and that gorgeous young sailor I married I have noticed he is now so much older with wrinkels appearing and hair thinning and turning silver.Life ages us all. My life, filled with all sorts of things, good,bad, pets, home, creativity, love & family.

  30. Has life gotten away? Well when I saw on your post that it was January 9 already, my head exploded! (Not a pretty site.) It is true that the older one gets, the faster a day passes. What fun colors in your quilt, and I love the lettering.

  33. I love the Dr Seuss banner, and your word is very inspirational! :)
    Sometimes I feel as though life gets away a bit from me - but I can always manage to rein it back in - it's just a matter of how long that actually takes that changes with each bump in the road :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. When I was still working, my mantra was " I wish I could get caught up just once!!!" I've been retired 8 years and just last week I said to my hubby, "I just wish I could get caught up!" Good post - thanks - Life is a good word.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm following you! (but not in a creepy way, lol!)

  40. Life is full of challenges and valleys and full of happiness - you just have to get to the happiness. Very wonderful and creative word and story. Tks for sharing. Judy C

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love the colors of your quilt! Life has its ups and downs and our lives have been on a rollercoaster for the last 18 months- hubby lost his job after we had moved to a new state where we knew no one, we lost three of our beloved dachsies within six months (all unexpectedly), he found a new job and we had to move out of state again, and we are fostering another dachsie who has decided that he loves living with us especially his new Dad!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Life is a great word. Should remind us to take every moment and live it to our fullest no matter what we do.. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Life for me is either whirling about or taking a break, one extreme to another, but that's life ;D
    Thank you for the chance

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think life gets away from all of us from time to time. (The hard part is when those times all run together!) Your project is beautiful! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Life is a great word choice. My life is mostly good for me: good health, good career, good family. And I need to remember to count my blessings.

    I am a follower!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Isn't Dr. Seuss fantastic? He really hits the "nail on the head!" From CA, thanks for sharing your "life"

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great choice for your word. My life is getting back on track right now. I think everyone is getting healthier and we are all so blessed. Love the Dr. Seuss lessons too. I had never read them before.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can hardly post for the blurry eyes from tearing up over your post. Such is life! What I would give you would be a "Hugs" quilt square to go with your "Life" square because when life comes down on you what you need is someone who understands and someone to reach out and touch you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Life, of course, has it's ups and downs. I'm in the middle of a down, but focusing on my blessings keeps me up!

    ReplyDelete
  50. LIFE - What a wonderful word. And the comments on Life are so insightful and real. And life does slip away without realizing - I was cleaning a shelf this morning and found a UFO from 2003 !!! I found another quilt started by a friend who passed on. Her husband gave me the unfinished blocks a long time ago. I have been living my life in memories all morning.

    I am just becoming a follower.

  51. I'm happier than I've ever been ! Two years ago I finally got to do what I've always wanted....be a stay at home ranch wife and quilt to my hearts desire.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I because unemployed for the first time since I had my youngest daughter 24 years ago. I am enjoying my time job hunting, but it has absolutely fed my need to create. I have time to quilt, and time to enjoy my grandson's (they live with me). To quote the late Erma Bombeck from "If I Had My Lie to Live Over" . . . but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute . . .
    look at it and really see it . . . and never give it back.”

    ReplyDelete
  53. A fabulous word! Life has definitely gotten away from me since I started working two jobs. But I cling tightly to my quilting time since it is the sanity in my LIFE! I LOVE the Dr. Seuss advice! I sure enjoyed visiting your blog this morning :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Life has gotten me busy and I am behind on my personal sewing but my family has tripled last year so, Xmas did too and my mom was with me for 3 wks this year so life got the best of me this year which is a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love your life project :) Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  56. my life finaly seems to be falling more into place and I now am doing only the things that bring positive energy into my day (like reading blogs and being inspired by other great crafters). I have a stable job for the first time in 3 years, a home and husband that fit me well and have let go of negativity that I was carring around for a while. I have descided 2013 is the year to realy live life and not let time mearly pass. Great blog -- new follower

  57. Great reminder & tips! Thank you. Your project turned out cute. Nice job.

  59. Like everyone my life has ups and downs but that's part of it! I always make the most of my ups!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Life tries to get away, but lately I've gone a little OCD about cleaning. I think it is all the medication I'm on, LOL. Doctors appointments every other day, then cleaning, I need to fit in crafting time whenever I can. UGH. Things will settle soon enough and I can be creative in a clean house :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love it! Thanks for sharing.
    As far as life getting away from us..it's hard not to when you want to quilt so many things, and do other crafty things,yet you work and clean house,do laundry, cook meals,buy groceries... Never enough time in the day. 23 min timer helps...but still never enough time.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Life gets in the way to much!!!! Some days I wish I could just curl up on the couch with a box of chocolates and read all day but then I have WAY to much stuff that needs to get done:) haha!!!! Story of my life:)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thanks for sharing - perfect timing since life is definitely interfering with my original plans today! Love the font and looking forward to seeing how this finishes up.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Life seems to be speeding up the older I get - and I have way too much to do! Thanks for sharing and the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Your project is wonderful! Great Word. Scrapbook ChickADoodle is right. Never enough time in the day. I`m retired. I try to get the housework done, sometimes I don`t, but I don`t want to go to my grave with "cathy kept a clean house" on my tombstone. I am at an increased risk for breast cancer. I may never get cancer, but the risk is there. I decided to make my life really great every day, really live. I sew more for my family, some decor things, I enjoy the Hops and my bloggy friends, meeting more people in my neighborhood and stretching myself. I`m "living" my Life. I set aside quilting time, a half hour twice a day. I usually make one of those time periods. The shedding dogs can wait awhile. My husband finally gets it. It`s hard to put yourself first once. All the commentors made good points. Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Once I retired I thought the days would drag but they only have zipped by.

  67. My life just took a wonderful turn. I get to be a grandma for the 2nd time. Dear daughter was not expecting(HA) to be a mom before she got married, but sometime plans change. And since he didn't want to be a dad, he left. Such is life. We will survive this. Like your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love your fabric choices. My life hasn't just gotten away from me, it has skipped the tracks and I am hanging on for dear...well...life! Along with a lot of other upheaval, I just found out my 12 yr. old daughter, who is a dancer and wants to be in a professional dance company, has scoliosis. We are taking it one day at a time and trying not to let "life" get us down. I think the best thing to do when life throws you curve balls is to take a deep breath and soldier on. Appreciate the little things and try to be the best person you can.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh, I forgot to mention I am a follower. Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing and allowing us to share with you.

  70. My life is all about fabrics and quilting. I live a good and "slow" life with my husband and our cats. Doing what we want, taking it easy. Don´t have much money, but that´s allright as long as I have fabrics and thread.

  80. Life is the perfect word. I look at it as a journey that is full of both bumps and triumphs. It doesn't matter how fast it passes as long as I am enjoying it fully.

    ReplyDelete
  81. What a super word! Love the font you used. I think you are in good company, hehe. Life is what happens when you are making other plans, right? 2012 flew by so fast for me, where does the time go? Sometimes all you can do is put out the "fires" that pop up in Life but don't forget to take time to breathe. I also think humor is a good stress buster. My son who was deployed with the Marine Corps came home from Afghanistan last November. I made five trips to the San Diego area in ten weeks. Believe me some balls got dropped, hehe. Life has gotten so busy and I think alot of people understand.

  83. I need an extra 24 hours in every day to do the things I need to do as well as the things I want to do! Balance is the key, but it is so hard to stay balanced when I would much prefer to stay in my quilting studio and quilt! Oh well, I look at it as what will matter in 5 years, then the little things just get off the list! Thanks for the opportunity to win such an awesome prize!

  95. Life has gotten away on me in a big way for the past year or more. I've had work burnout, ptsd or whatever and severe depression. But just last night I decided to get my life back in control and I am currently determined to do that. Lovely hanging you made!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Life is what you make it. I work at enjoying each day. Being 73, I have been through lots of highs and lows. Just try and make each day great. Thanks for being part of the hop.

  97. While dealing with my husband's undiagnoised, chronic illness the past several years I have come to realize just how precious life is. I've found it can go by much to fast while at the same time seemingly going very slow. I try hard to find joy in every day and to remember to count my blessings, one of which is the quilter who blog and brighten some dark days with their posts and pictures. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  102. Life has been pretty hard for me this past 20 months. I am in the "reorganization" mode and trying to learn my "new normal" after the unexpected loss of my husband.

  111. Every time I think my DH and I are close to being even, something happens that throws us backward. Suddenly I'm in my 70's and wonder where all the years have gone. On a more upbeat note, I love your project - especially the script font and fabrics that you used. swalker287 (at) gmail (dot) com.

  115. My life is very blessed. I have so very much to be thankful for, and try to remind myself as such every time I start to feel sorry for myself! I love the original work you do.

    ReplyDelete
  116. One of my favorite sayings for the past couple of decades which has been capitalized upon too is: "Life Is Good". One other fav. is "I Love America". Despite how crazy our schedules get, it's typically our own agenda to blame that we keep piling on more and more an already stressed time limit, thinking we are super women. This is a phrase and a growing time for you. Enjoy the process and don't be afraid to set limits, you're entitled. I know personally, been there and still going through too much to blah, blah blah about here. But I am smiling and progressing, such is life!
    I Loved your word, the font and colors you used within your project. Thank you for sharing and please, don't forget to Breathe! When you can, please find some time for a pause or two.
    Kind regards, Jane

  123. My life has gotten away from me in more ways than I can imagine. I feel like I've awakened from a long sleep, like rip van winkle, wondering where all the time went, and finally ready to get in the game. But no matter; this is going to be the best year ever!

  127. My life has indeed gotten away from me as health issues are preventing me from doing many daily activities and things have piled up. Would never have dreamed that I would miss doing housework! We are optimistic that after all tests are finished and meet again with the neurosurgeon that the problem will be identified and remedy can begin.

  130. Life does get in the way sometime of the things we think are important. I try to do whatever pleases me at the moment. Thanks for the fun hop.

  132. I am a follower now and love your word "Life" - I am 70, retired and have been a longtime sewer and a new quilter of the past 3 years, I love my "Life" as it is now, I am a Widow of 4 years, free to do as I like - spend my time my way and not have to answer to any other being - I love my family of 8 children and over 30 grandchildren and numerous Great Grand Children, "life at this stage revolves around me and I am happy - Quilting and Blogging keeps me grounded and as busy as I want to be.

  140. I love your project! The letters are so pretty. The fabric of my life is like the fabric in my stash. Some light, some dark, some pretty, some ugly, some whole and some in pieces....but hey, it all gets sorted out in the end and makes a pretty great patchwork!

  141. Life is a great choice for the In Your Word Hop. Your quilt is really nice. My life needs more organization and that is my goal for this year. Organize, organize, organize.

  142. I really like what you had to say about life. I tend to get anxious about things and am learning to just go with the flow because life is the way it is.

    Thanks for sharing!

  143. Love that word! Have given life to 5 children, and am busy being a mother to them, a wife to my husband, do some sewing in some spare time, and get ready for the spring when we sell bedding plants. Busy, some times, but life is living one day at a time, and taking what life offers that day! Thanks for sharing your word.
