Patchwork Plus for a floor model.
I have been working on Celtic Solstice, a little. This is where I was this morning and since then I have added about thrice as many and started using the different purples. I am still working on Step 1 but will be checking out Step 2 tomorrow, just prior to Step 3 coming out on Friday.
I have a really good excuse for falling so far behind. Saturday we had a great time at the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert. Oh, my, what a fun experience. Then early Sunday morning I woke up “not well.” Getting over that has taken a ...
I am making Christmas presents and some of the people that will get them read my blog. What do you do?
Perhaps I should share a Christmas scene I painted one year.
There, at least you know I wasn't eaten by wild hogs.
Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. read more
Believe it or not I made this wreath about 35 years ago. It looked much different then, just pinecones with red berries and a bit of baby’s breath. My mother, bless her heart had tucked it away all these years and recently gave it to Dear Eldest Daughter. Well, everyone knows that Dear Eldest Daughter is all about the bling, so I re-did the original wreath for her. It was all spruced up with silver spray paint then some glitter birds and baubles added and it looks amazing. She couldn’t wait to get it on her new front ...read more
After the past two days of baby sitting, prepping for medical tests, Christmas shopping (not - didn't find much!) and getting ready for St. Anne's - I barely had squeezed much applique fun into my time. I did add a teeny bit to my poor neglected LE: The background is a lot lighter cream. Finally decided on a vase fabric. Thanks to all who helped my out with this. Were you moreread more

Denise of My Life in Quilts is the winner of my recent book giveaway that was part of the Quilting Isn’t Funny Blog Tour. She will receive a signed copy of Quilting Isn’t Funny by humorist Megan Dougherty.
To get a chance to enter the contest, I asked Craft Gossip readers to share something funny that happened to them while quilting. Denise wrote:
This is only funny because it worked out in the end…otherwise I’d still be crying! Last year I was making a very modern, very geometric quilt for my son. It had lots of ...
I’ve just gotten home from dinner, and now I’m ready to pound this quilt out! I’ve got my Camp Snoopy Glass, and 4 cans of diet coke! I can do it!
Over the weekend we had a visitor. Barnaby….better known as Barns. That’s Barns all decked out in his Christmas sweater. He is HUGE. He is a mastiff and boy oh boy is he a big boy. Kelli went to pick something up off the floor and met Barns face to face. Honestly, his head is [...]read more
This tree skirt is is collaboration between my grandmother, mother and me. It is for my grandma and she picked out the fabrics, my mom sewed the top together, and I am sandwiching, quilting and binding it.
|Second basting of the tree skirt.|
Ok, it's official! The holiday stress level has hit it's max with me. I thought I was doing pretty good this year. After all, I had already made 3 quilts and they were already quilted. I had also done some shopping and got the package in the mail to Japan to all my babies over there. (Of course, it was missing a few things I really wanted to put in there and didn't get purchased or made. But if they were going to get a package before Christmas, I knew it HAD to get in the mail ...read more

We have a snug little cottage full of kids and quilty goodness. That is to say, it's small and full! So we choose to have a small tree.
With a Playmobil Nativity. I did mention kids, right? Look at tiny baby Jesus! Too funny.
The manger is resting on last year's free motion quilted table topper featuring lights made with my kids' thumb prints.
On the wall is a wall hanging I created and quilted 2 or 3 years ago. There's even pearle cotton 'hay' in the manger bed!
And a customer quilt is getting pin basted ... read more
When I begin feeling a bit sad about the old countertops being ripped out, I look at this spot. This is one of the worst spots. It’s right by the stove. When I’m canning, I spread a towel on the countertop and as I take the jars out of the canner, I place them on […]read more
And suddenly... a beautiful dog appeared on a bright lime green background.
One of the things I love most about doing applique work... is to me, the pieces of fabric are just pieces of fabric, nothing more... UNTIL they are sewn to their intended spot. Then suddenly the two pieces join and morph from just pieces of fabric to art.
Well, for the past several weeks this quilt top has been just a bunch of pieces. And now it has the beginnings of a piece of art. I am so thrilled.
Today's post is part three in my series ... read more
