Winter wonderland from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

What a fantastic Virtual Retreat!! I think I accomplished the most I've ever done, and I'm thrilled. We had people from the US, Germany, and across Canada. Loads of fun, and I'm so pleased to say that I've made new friends, and we get to check up on how people are doing in other parts of the world. It's way better than listening to the news! Thanks to everyone who attended. 

I also dug out my Brother Label Maker and two rolls of tape. As the girls said -- why "save" that tape for a better ...

Monday missions from Just Sew Sue


Yesterday after another lovely meal in Aberdeen, this time at Brewdogs, we headed to the airport by taxi as the roads were still icy. We eventually got home just before 10pm, after worrying about missing our connecting flight at Heathrow. However that flight was also delayed so we had plenty of time to spare.

My mission this morning was to have a CT scan at 8.45am, made more challenging as I slept through to 7.40am and there are about seven schools and colleges in a one mile radius of our home. I was five minutes late but all ...

Together again from Happy Cottage Quilter

 This Thanksgiving is the first time the whole family has been together in two years.

Except for my boys and their families, everybody was there. It was a nice get together with good food and fellowship. 

My sister in law, who was so close to dying this year, has been doing better. So that made it a double blessing.

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving weekend.

Friday finish - Tiilda hat from Just Sew Sue

We are in Aberdeen this week for Lizzie’s graduation from Aberdeen University with a masters in medical physics. The ceremony was mainly in Latin and there was a bagpiper around to pipe in the faculty.

Matt has also joined us and we are eating very well. Today we are doing an escape room which Matt is not happy about. We are also viewing a flat to get her out of the dump she’s in.

Lizzie asked me to knit a purple hat for her friend. I knit it before leaving Jersey and we bought the Pom poms from ...

Moving things from place to place......... from Exuberant Color

I'm not sure I made any progress on reorganization of my cutting dies but it took up many hours yesterday.  I didn't sew anything but took a little time to pet fabric.

My red cactus is blooming away.  It looks like many more buds will open but the tiniest ones will probably dry up and fall off.  The angel has been watching over my cacti for several years since a friend gave it to me.

It was another cold day yesterday so the only time I was outside was to walk to the end of the driveway for ...

Drunkard’s Path from Quilts....etc.

I do not seem to be making time to cut out more butterfly blocks and working on them so for a change I decided to cut last night and get blocks ready to sew sitting on the table – they should move faster that way for when I have even 30 minutes here or there […]

What I’m Working On… from Jo's Country Junction

I had very little stitching time but LOTS of family time.  I’ll tell you about that in upcoming blog posts.

I did start working on my new quilt, Remainders, in the book No Scrap Left Behind by Amanda Jean Nyberg.  Find the book HERE.

I’m trying to use up my half-square bonus triangles.  This project looked like it would use a lot of them.

I started the first step on these, went to iron, and discovered my tension must be off.  UGH.  It happens.  See the little wrinkles where the half square triangle attaches to the strip.  That ...

Back To The Stars from Quilting My Way

This morning turned out quiet.  I got going on laundry since Patrick did his usual piles. 

Funny how the day went on. I was in the middle of a game and laundry (after cleaning the cat litter and cleaning up the kitchen by putting dishes away), when my brother called. We had a very long chat. Funny but we both talked about things we love. He was telling me about a good book that talks about the Civil War. So, I pulled out the family Civil War Veterans information and read a lot to him. Then we chatted about how ...

Join Me for the Next Christa Quilts Live Event on Tuesday! from Christa Quilts

I have to tell you how much fun it’s been share again on a regular basis. It feels like I’m keeping in touch with all of you – my quilting friends – and I sure have missed you! Keeping up with a habit is a lot easier than starting a new one, and it’s nice to be able to write a few sentences, or record a short video, without feeling like it has to be perfect, LOL!!

Today I want to remind you about Live! events that I’ve relaunched over in my Facebook group. The first one last ...

2021:  Week 48 of 15 Minutes to Stitch


I spent my week getting ready for the gathering and having the gathering. We had a good time, even though some members of our family was not able to come.

I spent a couple of sessions to put the remainder of the pieces on the Halloween block. I plan to have one or more quilt finishes before the end of the year to offset the many quilts I have started.

15 minute days this week --2 out of 7
15 minute days this year -- 274 out of 332 days

PCQ Color Challenge from The Colorful Fabricholic

Every month since July I've had "Work on my Color Challenge project" on my list of monthly goals but other than packing some fabrics and taking them along to retreat in July, I haven't done anything. 

And now I'm glad I haven't. 

The challenge is to make something using Split Complementary colors. Split complementary means the colors on each side of the complementary color. In this example, the chosen color is violet, whose complement is yellow. Yellow-green and yellow-orange are the split complementary colors. 

Apparently some of the PCQ members have been struggling with the challenge ...

Weekly update: Thanksgiving, fall hiking, a flimsy and a a great book from With Strings Attached

We enjoyed a quiet, two-of-us Thanksgiving.  I got a 21-lb. turkey for .29/lb. It was easy to spend the additional $30 the supermarket required.    I made pot pie this evening (Sunday) and froze the rest of the turkey. 

We love the tang/sweet/onion taste of Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish .  

I cooked down the Halloween pumpkins to provide the chief ingredient for dessert (and several desserts to come).  

 I make a loaf (or two) of cranberry bread using the recipe from Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende and Harry Devlin. The well-used copy dates from the 1970's when I ...

More Frustration With This Chart from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As you all know, I make my share of mistakes but at this point, well . . I’ll just not say what I think. It’s time to either accept that I’m going to have to check and double check every stitch I make or chalk it up to an expensive experience and throw it all...
