Birthday lunch and lots of pretty things.......... from A Legacy of Stitches

Today, I treated my good friend, Sue Kraemer, to lunch for her birthday. Her actual birthday is in October but we have both been so busy that we couldn't find time to get together. Today worked for both of us so we met at the Henderson RoadHaus, enjoyed a great lunch, and then got caught up on chit-chat. Yes, we did. One of the things we talked about was the upcoming craft show at Minnesota New Country School. It's this Saturday and we both plan to be there and see what lovely and tasty things are for sale ...

Busy Week Ahead from The Quilting Reader's Garden

Mom home from her 6 weeks in TX. A busy week awaits us with tests, travel, and surgery. This may be my post for the week.  I've used 1.5 yards making two more charity quilt tops.  Piecing batting for one and the other is sandwiched. Quilting a third.  I'll take fabric with me to Mom's house to make more hexies - that's about all I'll be able to do around nursing duties. Say a prayer, please!  My

Martinez berasal serangan'devastating' from Dysfunktional Knitter and Quilter

Martinez berasal serangan'devastating'

Manajer Everton Roberto Martinez memuji kualitas timnya di depan gawang setelah Senin menang 3-1 atas Premier League QPR.

Sebuah serangan luhur dari bintang muda lini tengah Ross Barkley merupakan katalisator untuk Everton di Goodison Park sebagai pakaian Merseyside mengakhiri tiga pertandingan beruntun tanpa kemenangan di liga.

Barkley mengumpulkan bola di garis tengah dan memainkan satu-dua dengan Romelu Lukaku sebelum bergelombang menuju tujuan dan menemukan sudut atas gawang dengan tendangan kaki kiri berbisa dari luar kotak penalti di menit ke-33.

Everton menggandakan keunggulan dua menit sebelum babak pertama, dengan Kevin Mirallas 'tendangan bebas mencolok Eduardo Vargas dan ...

Our Fellowship Grand Finale! from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

We made it! Whew! What an incredible journey this has been. Fifty weeks, fifty flowers, twelve projects and some bees thrown in for good measure. hee,hee,hee. It sure was fun to stretch myself creatively to come up with all these combinations to share with you.


Here is our final project simply called, "Fellowship of the Flowers." It represents not only how much flowers appreciate the bees, but how your friendship and support of my little business is truly appreciated. It is not easy being self employed in an "artsy" career. The bunnies, Sabrina and I would not be ...

Thank you for a thank you from Aussie Hero Quilts


Some people don't just become a recipient they become part of the Aussie Hero Family and this young lady is one of those.  She came along with her husband when he came to collect his quilt from myself and Julie Ann and she went away and hatched a plan.  That plan involved inviting the Aussie Hero Quilters out to RAAF Richmond as guests for a day.   Lots of other people were involved in that day too, but none of it would have happened without her efforts.   So, after spending the day with her at Richmond when the time came ...
