Can I Have "A Big Hug"? from Midget Gem Quilts

Can I have "A Big Hug"?


The answer is No. Just a virtual hug, but I will leave that question just hanging there. I have decided the perfect name for version of The Grace Heart Quilt, designed by mmmquilt.com is THE Big Hug.

The hearts seem to be very relevant at the minute. The big read heart at the front just seemed to leap out at me. I thought of The Big Love, but that reminds me of a tv series that was on (not that I watched it). The Big Hug just seemed to wrap itself around me ...

Mini-Scapes from Linda's Landscapes

Why, I wondered the other day, was I so inspired, early this March, to begin a whole new line of landscape quilts for my Etsy shop...when the market was, unbeknownst to any of us, about to take a downturn?





The answer occurred almost immediately---the joy that came from making these new "Mini-Scapes" had bolstered my immune system like nothing else could have, going into this pandemic. And what a welcome distraction from the news.


(I think I will add some sea foam to the bottom of the cliff.)






These are all roughly 10 to 11 inches wide by 7 ...

Cleaning from Wont to be Quilter

Hi friends!
Yesterday I started cleaning up my sewing room. Buy cutting up every scrap I find in their.
First I finished this star that I cut out the day before.
Going to cut up 3 1/2 inch square to go into a baby boy quilt in the process.
This is hanging off of trees here and there all over this country. And so pretty this time of year. The smell is wonderful. Tommy says he can't smell it!
We had our first death from this horrible virus, a 82 year old man.
They are not giving names ...

Courage from Wollie Mammoth


Each morning after a restless night of sleep this is my mantra...Inhale Courage, Exhale Fear.  It is a daily struggle but the wonderful side of social media is seeing all the stitchers who wake up and create something for strangers...all the mask makers, quilt creators, cross stitch designers who encourage us to exhale the fear through our stitching.  Thank you to all of you who lift my spirits and I hope I also do that for you!

More Triangulating from ... Cat Patches

You're not *still* sewing triangles together, are you?


If you want me to help you, you're going to have to purrogress to something less meownotonous.


That's how my day went yesterday. Cats can be so mouthy. Smitty was so disgusted, he roped Mike into taking him out for a sit. Sometimes he goes out for a walk, but yesterday's walk turned into a sit as he surveyed his kingdom.


Later he came in and used his very specialized tool to point out any cutting errors I might have made.


All of these pinks and whites have ...

Nice Work If You Can Get It from Priscilla's Workshop

Stephanie Grisham has been fired from her job as press secretary for the White House. Despite serving in that position for eight months, she never gave a press conference--not one. Nevertheless she was still being paid a six figure yearly salary.

So Grisham was paid a lot for doing nothing and Jared Kushner is paid nothing for doing a lot. Sort of balances out especially given their mutual lack of competence.

ADHD and Crafting from Life Sew Crafty

So this post is a way to get this out in the open and think through it and also to help others who might have the same experience. I am a 35-year-old, white, pansexual, cis-gender female, first-generation immigrant from Germany, living in the Midwest. I am also a wife, working mother, crafter, friend, daughter, sister, agnostic, and so much more, all labels I use proudly. Some present challenges, others give me privilege, some of them do both, but they are all mine, and I own them. A couple months ago I started seeing a therapist. Not for any one reason ...

to do tuesday from Making A Lather

Last week's to do
1. start quilted twins mystery
This was an adventure- In all this house of fabric, I couldn't find enough brown or gold for the constants in this mystery quilt. I started looking online for any suitable fabric. I didn't see any that thrilled me. I wasn't going to risk going out. Then, Joann fabric sent a coupon for curbside pick up. hmm. It took 2 attempts, but I found what I wanted. I was very frustrated in the end, but I have the fabric. That is as far as I got.
