Rita’s Thundershirt should be here tomorrow. I was hoping it would get here today but it didn’t. This is Accuweather’s radar. With us only having well water, if the power goes out, we don’t have any water unless we fire up a generator and we don’t usually do that right off the bat so . […]read more

In the midst of special birthdays, anniversaries and a family wedding I have been collating the final pattern of the block of the month Chester Criswell Quilt. The first block was released nearly three years ago in August 2012 and Block 33 will be unleashed in a few days. Congratulations to all of you that have kept up with the blocks and shared your blogs, you deserve a medal!
The final block doesn't mean the end of the quilt. The patterns are all available at Two Bits Patches, you can still buy one or two or all. There are ...
Wow, it has been 10 days since my last blog post. We have 3 more shows to go and then packing up, moving out of the theatre and all the washing to do. Last weekend I washed and ironed over 80 pieces of costume in the 3 day lay off we had from the evening show on Saturday night until the show this Wednesday just gone.
These are just a few of the pics I have to show you. The ones below were taken by Jake Jacobson of , JJJ photography Ulverstone.

So, this might be my new favorite :) Say hello to Picnic at the Fairgrounds…
I love absolutely everything about this quilt.
I also love this quilt because I finally pushed past my fear of straight line quilting on the longarm. Now I wonder, why did I wait so long to try this?!?! I LOVE the look and texture of straight line quilting. I will never push a big quilt ...read more
On Monday afternoon I took paint stiks to the layered paint piece.
I used three different colors of paint stiks and maybe a half dozen rubbing plates. My favorite was the morning glories and leaves in the barn red.
I haven’t heat set it yet. We’ve had such a busy week with the holiday and pre-graduation events that I haven’t had much time at home.
I’m not sure where it goes from here, but I’m thinking it needs some surface embellishment. Maybe yarn. Maybe not. I never know until I start playing.
|OMG .. an empty scrap bin!|
Like most quilters, I create a sizable accumulation of scraps ... leftover bits and pieces from whatever project you are working on. They are too small to use in your project but clearly too large to just literally throw away. You know they are good for something else ... mini projects, mock-ups, experimentation ... that you will *certainly* do some day. In the future. The far future.
|color piles of scraps|
My scrap bin was over-flowing. I can tolerate a high degree of clutter but this was absolutely over the line ...
Ugh, my local quilt shop only had one small spool of the light gray aurifil thread and no big spools. I thought it was going to be enough, but it for sure is NOT going to be enough. Since nobody else local has any, I am going to have to order more online. :( Ordering now, and then finishing up what quilting I can do, bummer....read more
YAY!!! A guest post by Debby Brown!!!!!!!!!!
Here we go...
Confession: I started out in quilting as a longarm quilter because I couldn’t quilt on my home machine. Are you disappointed in me ...![endif]-->!--[if>![endif]-->!--[if>![endif]-->!--[if> read more
Simple and elegant.
Love it … but it needs some quilting.
That is not going to happen in the near future … I have my bags packed and intend retreating with fellow quilters for a few days.
Virtual quilts have been scheduled to appear during my absence.

I think I bit off more than I could chew last week!
This is as far as I got on my closet:
It’s emptier, but not even completely emptied out yet! I’ve been a little lacking in motivation this week. Send help — send me some mojo!
Yet here we are — it’s already time for this week’s task, which is:
Clean out a fabric bin
I have many of these. Many. Some of them aren’t even bins. They’re boxes, bags, piles, you name it. Many. Too many.
My goal is to tackle just one of ...read more
