We awoke this morning to find that our beautiful boy had gone outside on daybreak and had passed away. We thought he was little unwell last night but obviously had suffered a heart attack or similar. He was still eating his 12 meals a day up until last night. He was such a rascal. We are heartbroken.
Bobbin thread is required if you want your blocks to stay together.
Joined – finally!! Now on to the plain white 6″ border.
The first two rows went together without a hitch. But on the second row I joined row # 4 to #2 instead of # 3 to #2. I actually thought about leaving them that way because it took me all day to sew. But it ruined my very carefully placed block order so I unpicked them – I knew it would bother me forever if I didn’t.
To add insult to injury – when I was restitching the two rows I started out on the wrong patch and I got about one-quarter of ...read more
Miss Hattie is the most comical chicken! Do you get tired of hearing stories about her? Do you know how boring my “chicken family” would be without Miss Hattie? I like her so much! She really knows no limits. I’m surprised at the things the chickens have learned but we surely have not been able [...]read more
I've never been this behind blogging... work, illness, all got in the way. I want to post of few special photos completing our trip to Vancouver Island. First, the history behind Butchart Gardens.
At blogging that is.
I have no excuse.
I have been busy - but everyone is busy.
I have been happy and therefore have had less of a need for ranting and raving... and lets face face it, that makes up a significant portion of my posts!
I have been sewing - a lot. Lots of orders coming in and lots of local recognition. AND local markets are gearing up which means I need to spend my evenings sewing. Poor me.
I found out today my grand baby is a girl. That is pretty exciting. Penelope is happy to finally have a ...
...got me sidetracked!!
See what I mean??
I made eight of these lovelies. These were made following a pattern by Michelle's Patterns.
Now, to get back to Frogger and finish some quilts.
We've been home for over a week now and I'm still having trouble getting back into my daily routine. Part of my problem is that I've got plantar fasciitis in my right foot which is making walking quite painful. I usually start my morning with a long fast walk, but the most I've been able to do is a slow short one and it's just not the same. Amazing how one little thing can throw me out of sync.
I did do a special order of fabrics and with the leftover dye stock I did ...
I am loving it. I love the colors, and as far as the pattern goes, i have always wanted to make a log cabin quilt but i have NEVER seen a layout of one i like... till this one.

UFO busting is SO important. Because if you have these UFOs around giving you guilt, you just can't have any fun. Am I right?
My UFO Busting Tip 5 is the "Search and Rescue"
It is VERY important one
Ask yourself these questions
- When was the last time you actually SAW the top of your cutting table
- Is your ironing board piled HIGH with crap that needs put away.. .. treasures you purchased?
- Do you HAVE your newly selected 3 to 10 UFOs in a spot where you can actuall GET to them?
- Where are your Scissors, rotary cutter, favorite ...

Summer is almost here!
We have some new patterns now in stock. Terry Atkinson, from Atkinson Designs, is a favorite of ours. We have been waiting for some new patterns and here they are, fresh from Spring Market!
Fat Quarter Friendly! Stars with floating points never get cut off! Select solids or small prints for this smashing quilt.
Morning Noon & Night! This pattern has several variations and you can make up to a king size quilt!
… chickens! As you can see, I will be spending the next few days in the company of some “fowl” friends!
Just look at that cream chicken wire fabric — I just love that fabric. More details on my newest project and fabrics later!
I am curious though… are you a fan of chickens/roosters? Do you have any chicken/rooster themed decorations in your house?
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to share with you another featured quilt and/or Thread Talk post before the week is over.

Many of you know that I used to work at a quilt shop here in Vegas. After my second son was born, I became a full-time at-home mom, instead of working outside the home. But, I couldn't give up all the social interaction of hanging out with others, so I found a middle ground. I teach classes at the quilt shop - allowing me to stay home most of the time, but still get out and play with other quilters sometimes, too! Taking and teaching classes, as well as staying active in the local Modern ... read more
