“Little Beast” for Andrew from Nina Paley

The two-word request for this Hundred Dollar Drawing was “Little Beast,” but this is really Lil’ Beast o’ the Apocalypse.

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and ...

Playing with sheer fabrics from Quilting & Learning

Have I told you how much I love playing with textiles lately? It would seem that I'm smitten! As you may know, I've been taking part in the TextileArtist.org's Stitch Club 2020 since it first started this spring. It has brought stitchers together with amazing workshops by guest textile artists.

Flower Impressions - pink campion 

The platform has really evolved since its creation - from having 3 workshops in a row with one week off, to now having workshops that last 2 weeks each.  At the beginning of the week, there is ...

Slow Sunday Stitching - Doll Quilt from Angel Scraps Quilting

Happy Slow Stitching Sunday!

Here is a doll quilt I am making as a Christmas Gift for my 4 year old granddaughter.  I think this quilt, a doll size pillow and a doll would make a sweet gift.  

I've been hankering for a hand project to work on at night while watching TV with my hubby.  I could quilt this on my machine in just a few minutes, but I think that hand quilting stitches will give it an old fashioned quilt feel. 

 Taped down in preparation of pin basting.

Pinned.

Testing the marking pin.


Passed the test!

Eagle Eye Addie from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Last night it was time for Addie to go to bed. She stopped, sat down on the sofa, crossed her legs and I knew this was important. I had stuck a clear plastic tote on top of the entertainment center. It had a variety of stuff in it and I was going to go through...

Slow Stitching from Eagle's Wings Quilts

 I got a little more stitching done this week on the Noah’s Journey BOM. I’m about halfway through the last of this month’s stitcheries - the very cute pigs.

I’m also slowly continuing to work on Abbie’s sweater. I’ve started the second sleeve. However, I got a bit side tracked. I have new yarn sitting here waiting for a new sweater start. While talking with Gail one evening last week on FaceTime, I started digging around in my various baskets looking for the 2.25mm needles and the short cable that I use when casting ...

Vintage Halloween Economy Blocks from Carried Away Quilting

I have a weakness for vintage inspired children’s fabrics. They remind me of my favorite children’s books . . . tender stories of sweet boys and girls finding adventures in their everyday lives, learning lessons of kindness, honesty, resilience and even bravery. Every illustration was a small work of art, inviting me to another place and time. It’s no wonder that I couldn’t resist this darling Halloween themed fabric with a vintage vibe.


The focal fabric you see at the center of my blocks is from a Halloween collection by Belle and Boo, which is a company based in ...

Holiday Shopping?? from Sew Karen-ly Created...

 I am happy to say that the commissioned banner has been delivered to its forever home, (pictures to follow) so new projects can now be begun.

With that off my plate, the first task was to clean up my sewing room, a dreaded ordeal which has not been attended to in some months.  While purging, I listened to music and newscasts, one of which was a news release from Canada Post, urging folks to start their Christmas shopping - and shipping - early, as it is anticipated most folks will be ordering online this Covid season.  The only thing worse than a ...

Selfie from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You know that I’m not one who enjoys taking pictures of myself or having my picture taken so you don’t often see photos of me. I was telling my friend that I haven’t had a hair cut since February. I’ve always had bangs and they’ve grown out. I did have Vince cut the back of...

Details, Details from ... Cat Patches

My morning was slow yesterday, and so I spent a luxuriously long time with my slow stitching, filling in the current hoops-worth.


There's just a little left to do on the lower right.


I don't expect to finish this today, but maybe by tomorrow. Here's all that's left to stitch.


This is Sunday, so I'll be linking up to



With that finished, I briefly considered going out for a walk. By brief, I mean, about the length of time it takes me to stand up. And after standing up, I was too exhausted to consider ...

Quilt Pattern – Autumn Winds by AGF Studio from Craft Gossip

Originally designed by Sharon Holland to showcase the Autumn Vibes fabric line by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics, this quilt truly is reminiscent of its name Autumn Winds.

Made with half square triangles, flying geese and squares, the finished quilt measures 70″ x 70″.  Using the colors and fabrics shown in the pattern, the quilt has a southwestern feel to it.

One of the things I like best about a pattern like this one is that it uses a lot of different fabrics.  This one suggests 12 of them, so it is right up my alley.  I’ll let ...

KItchen Towel Decor for Fall from Sewing and Scrapping with Susan

 Greetings Blog Friends,

Here is a decorative kitchen towel project for display in my dining room. 

This is the original (first towel).  It hangs from a drawer pull mounted on a block of wood, fashioned by my handy hubby, Denis.  


Here is the Halloween installment:

And the Thanksgiving installment:

The original towel was made from a kit I purchased from Shabby Fabrics.com.   It includes the fabrics and instructions and pre-printed batting from June Tailor, Inc.  I took a copy of the original batting pattern, and am now making towels from my own fabric stash.  I plan to make towels ...

slipping away . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

This is the last slow stitching Sunday in October . . . and there are only nine left in 2020.  How's that for an opening line?!

Between the birthday weekend and getting ready for the Blog Hop, by this past week I was ready to just chill.  LOL! But I pretty much had something every night last week, so not a lot to show. I will share this darling photo of my niece, Liesl . . .
October is Down Syndrome month and the colors of solidarity are blue and yellow.  My sister had the yard signs made this year. So sweet!  If you're ...
