Ich weiß... ein komischer Titel für einen Post! Ich rege mich gerade einwenig auf....
Es gibt einfach immer noch zu viele Menschen, die Handarbeit - und die Betonung liegt auf ARBEIT - nicht zu schätzen wissen. Beim Klempner geben sie für eine Schraube festziehen mal locker 200 € aus (Anfahrtzeit 90 €, obwohl der um die Ecke seinen Laden hat, 110 € pauschal für eine Std. Arbeit) - sorry ihr Klempner da draußen: ist nicht persönlich gemeint!
Wenn sich aber eine Kundin (hoch dekoriert in Markenklamotten und mit viel Lametta behangen) einen Quilt von mir machen lassen möchte und nach der Preisansage sofort nach ihrem Riechsalz ...
Hi again everyone,
two blog posts in two days! - this has to be my record for all times... ha ha!
Oh well, one of these days I will learn how to better plan my blog posts and schedule them, and be consistent and.... you get the picture? Honestly, I have all these things in my head and in my sketchbooks and on bits of paper...I want to share it all (in many ways, not just here) but better organization (of little extra time that I have) still escapes me... As always, if you have any good tips, please share ...
It turned into this!
Shenandoah is a new 3-yard piece that will be perfect for an autumnal quilt.
There are 2 other new 3-yard pieces also added to the shop.
I've also created a new gradient called Allegheny
Finally, I've restocked these 3 popular gradients.
I didn't have enough of any one fabric suitable to make a backing for "Slumber Party." But I did have several smaller pieces that would work. So I chose four of them and stitched them together to make a pieced backing. Here it is.
Now it's time to deliver this one to Lena for quilting.
I guess it's also time to get back to the boring French Snowballs quilt. No, it's not boring to look at; in fact, I really like the way it looks. But for some reason, it's bores me silly to work ...read more

The show included vendors and several special exhibits. I went especially to see the ...
So, another Saturday, another mad road trip. This time it was with the lovely Lynne from Tinking Along, and her husband who are over on holiday in the UK. I took them on the extended Cameron Highland tour, taking in Loch Lomond, Rannoch Moor, Glencoe, Oban, Lochgilphead, Inverary and back to Glasgow again. We had lunch at the Clachaig, at the end of Glencoe, which does fabulous, hearty local food, and then we stopped for dinner at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar just outside Inverary. It was a long, but fun day, and needless to say rather diminished my sewing ...read more
First I want to apologize for the HORRIBLE picture quality! My Canon broke the other day and I’m stuck with using either my old Canon (which I gave to my son to play with so it’s not in great shape) or using my phone. My phone’s camera isn’t bad but it’s not how I want to get my pictures done. BOOOO!! And I’m not really ready to drop a lot of moola on a new one. But I will have to soon because I use it not only for the blog but also when ...read more
