You’re probably all familiar with ginger and most of us have used it ground or fresh. We use a lot of fresh ginger, especially since I’ve been on my wonton binge. A while back, I think I mentioned that I had ordered some edible ginger plants. They arrived recently and have been planted and are […]read more

My granddaughter, Hazel, will be one next week! She loves reading books, so I thought it would be fun to make her a personalized cloth book, but I don’t really have the time to make it as elaborate as I would like. Instead, I needed something quick and easy.
A couple weeks ago I found a really cute book panel on Spoonflower that is customizable with the baby’s name, so I ordered one. Yesterday, I got the idea of printing Hazel’s picture and sewing it to the front of the book, covering up the baby motif that ...read more
|Amish Baby 54-40 Or Fight, 50" x 50", with Minky Backing and Satin Blanket Binding|
IT IS FINISHED!!! Arm slings, thumb splints, frozen shoulder, surgery, and uncooperative satin blanket binding could not defeat me. My Amish Baby 54-40 Or Fight quilt is finished, and I like it! I even ended up loving the double row of zigzagging on the satin binding (a functional necessity since I did not manage to perfectly align the inner edge of the binding in a couple of places on the first pass). I think it looks decorative, almost like another skinny border coming ... read more
Have you heard of the Row by Row Experience?
It started a few years ago as a New York Shop Hop and then started to expand. The past couple of years it was a Pennsylvania one. Well they have have expanded again and it is nationwide and in Canada!

It’s Friday, and after an unfriendly week, I am thrilled to post a pretty little finished quilt today!
We had a hail storm beyond belief last week in our Texas Hill country town. Every home in our development had at least one blown out window and on top of that, every house needs a whole new roof. This affects my blogging partner Michelle, too, as she and I live in the same community. With news like that, I prefer to just bury my head in the sand, and quilt away. Happily for Michelle, she’s ...read more
Полоски-разрезалки всем пришлись по душе: ни одного криволинейного шва, а в результате - чудные переплетающиеся волнистые дорожки..
Специально не обрезала верхнее фото. Видите, на заднем плане кто-то усердно строчит, пока все разглядывают заготовку Галины Викторовны?
Это Нина Фетюхина, шьет барджелло:
А эту кошечку, наверное, узнают все, кто побывал или следил за репортажами с Квилтфеста:
Тоже Нинина. ) . Результат МК с Norico Nozawa.
Фото с ФБ ( Нина опять усердно шьет )):
Так что, мои утверждения, как мне повезло с ученицами, отнюдь не голословны..)

Had our boy yesterday!
He is the sweetest little baby boy!
I made him a pillow the day before.
He ran around the cars several times.
He is a bundle of energy all the time and doesn't take naps but he may have gone to sleep in the car going home after the battle of the Orka ...
I think spring might be here...for 10 minutes, anyway! ;) I am SO looking forward to summer and sitting out in the garden. This winter was not bad, by any means, but enough. :)
Here are a few websites to look at:
A good explanation of the dreaded batting bearding:
And on how to take care of fabric bleed: (Vicki does amazing hand dyes!)
And...a great way to baste a quilt!
This has been a ...

I'm just home from the Quilters Dream Retreat held at Camp Arnold in April and October. I've been going to the April retreats since moving up here. My friend, Lisa, from Canada, found this retreat and got us in -- no easy feat since they are usually full. Since then, we've met there annually. This was the first year that Lisa couldn't make it--still fun, but just not the same without her.
The first year we had no idea what we were getting into. However, we were fortunate enough to pick a place to sit that turned ...
What you are reading right now is my 250th blog post. Can you believe it? I’m not sure I can. I started writing Tales of a Stitcher in December 2012 and two-and-a-half- years later, I am still stitching and writing. I want to thank all of you for taking this journey with me.
I’ve shared my life in Alaska both in the studio and out with you readers. It has been a amazing experience. Who knows what the next 250th blog posts will be about, but no matter what, I am glad very grateful for you dear readers ...read more
|First Prize winner at Uttoxeter Quilt Show, made by our Princess Jackie|
Oh my goodness, did these Lovely "Latte" Ladies, just do a magnificent job, with amazing projects or what? I can't tell you, what a privilege it was to cheerlead for all of you! Each and every one of you inspires me every day!
I consulted my crystal ball (also known as Random.org) and #19 was picked as my winner of the Have a Latte Blog Hop. That would be none other than Super Mom No Cape. Now if that isn't the greatest name I've ever heard. Speaks a lot about all moms, doesn't it. I ...
