QOV #6 quilted from Mel's quilting blog

Such a great design.
I did leaves across the quilt because of some of the fabrics.

Big plus, little plus (what begins with plus?) from Fabric Engineer

After about five years, "Big Plus, Little Plus"* is finally finished


It'll be for a little boy due any day now...I'm rather excited that I finished before the baby came!

This time I took pictures at my parents' cottage.  I took them just as the sun was setting, which was rather bad for coloring but great for background.

The quilt is made of a bunch of strips; it was the easiest way to get all of the little pluses in correctly.  I started the design by putting in the big plus and then added the little pluses ...

Land Angels...meet one here! Rob and Bella. from Sew We Quilt

I remember the first time I heard this phrase of "land angel " I was looking after a patient named Ken, he was my first terminal patient. You never ever forget that first goodbye to someone whom you cared for- for months. I knew his time was nearing as he slept a lot through his brain cancer, the last few days of his life he was alert and could carry on a conversation. That was when I heard "Samm, you are a land angel- do you know what that is?". Of course I had not, but the term was sweet, he ...

Pat Sloan: Super fun round up with a deal and a freebie! from Pat Sloan's Blog

Geezzz.. today I had one of 'those days' were even the most simple of things goes haywire!  I had a text document.. that blinked.. 

Yes.. Blinked.... the entire document

Blinked

Like a flashing light at a railroad crossing.. 

We finally got most of the blinking to stop.. except the bullet points.. which half blink...

full bullet

half bullet... repeat

What is THAT all about?  Sent to the person saying 'please excuse the blinking bullet points... sigh......  

And there was more boring work stuff that didn't go smooth... or fast... or smooth AND fast.. either would have been good.  So ...

Testing is done, time to play! from Patterns by Jen

Getting patterns ready for testing makes Jen a boring girl, blog wise and social media wise anyway. Yesterday, though, I got to play with fabric. Of course it had to be flamingo fabric, but look at this too cute little pouch! It demanded flamingo fabric!


This pouch is called Charming Tinsel Pouch, and is too cute for words. Amista from Hilltop Custom Designs designed this darling thing. You can find her blog here, and her store here.

I did have an issue with the instructions for the zipper. If it were morning I would say it was because I hadn ...

Very pleasant Friday from WAZOO! Newsbits

My customer sent a partially finished tee shirt quilt, or should I say quilts!? There was one for the front and one for the back. She sent along the borders, already sewn, with a note saying she was hopelessly frustrated with it and couldn't finish it. Most of the morning was spent trimming, sewing and making the back big enough. Then, I added the borders, quilted it and added binding. Tonight, I am doing the hand sewing while watching Inspector Lewis.

During the day, I took in some lovely quilts and made a new friend. The whole day was ...

Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + Summer Solstice Quilt Along Progress from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

I've been on vacation at the Washington Coast with my parents and siblings this week, and they let me bring my sewing machine!!  Now I'm caught up with the Summer Solstice Quilt Along, having completed the flying geese and HSTs except for trimming the HSTs.  If I had been thinking ahead, I would have used my Accuquilt Go! to cut the HSTs so they wouldn't need to be trimmed, but I totally forgot!  I ♥ it because it saves so much time trimming ...

Row by Row: Bedford, PA from Stash Overflow

Last week at guild several of us were talking about the Row by Row Experience, Facebook swap groups for rows, rows we wanted, how easy it is to get a little crazy wanting every other row we see and so forth. Mary Beth really wanted a row from one of the three, yes, three, shops in Bedford, PA. When she asked her husband what he thought about her going there by herself, he suggested that she ask some friends to go with her and make a day of it. Isn’t he a keeper! In no time she had a ...

Amy Bradley's Camper Quilt blocks from Beehive Quilts

My friend, Venita, and I are working on completing Amy Bradley's Camper Quilt. We fell in love with the pattern at first sight and decided to do our own personal Block of the Month, only we do it whenever we decided to get together and work on each block. The pattern has eight regular blocks and two extra blocks. We have done five of the regular blocks. This is my most recent one done:



Below is the front of the pattern. As you can see, Amy used a theme to her blocks so that they all looked alike. I ...

I have finally figured out how I want to quilt this one.  Sometimes deciding how to quilt something takes a lot of time.  I love all the open space to play with.  You can see that I am not even half done, but it is well on its way.

So this happened from Blueberry Patch


My husband asked me what I had planned for this summer.  What was I going to look forward to and what was going to put a spring in my step?  I happened to mention that I thought I might like a serger.  I did a little research and then off I went to do a little up close and personal research.  And I bought one.  And once I got that sucker threaded, it is a whole lot of fun.


I made these little baby boy shorts in 5 minutes or less.  Oh my goodness.  So much fun.  This is a ...

Cabbage Sauteed with Chicken from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

I’ve been trying to be a little better with my eating…well, not really.  I’ve just been trying to balance out a few of the “bad” meals with a few good meals.  I’m always looking for things that aren’t loaded with carbs.  As a diabetic carbs are something I’m suppose to limit.

I saw a recipe for Cabbage Sauteed with Chicken and thought to give it a try…only problem, Hubby does not like cabbage.  There are very few things he doesn’t like but cabbage happens to be one he doesn’t.

Cabbage-chicken

Like Summer Camp for Adults from On The Go Quilting

Strange title?   Well, I’ve been away at Escapade and it does feel like summer camp for adults, RVing adults at least.

I thought you might like an explanation about this ‘Escapade’ thing I mention.   I think I have mentioned before that DH and I are members of an RV Club.  This Club’s name is Escapees and it was started back in the 1973 by one family.   The Petersen’s had a dream of working ‘on the road’ and traveling around America seeing the country.  They did it, and they still do!    Kay Peterson, whose membership number is #1 ...
