Selling Some Beautiful Needle Art from I Have A Notion

UPDATED 4/29/16 Normally I don't do this, but I was thinking who would appreciate beautiful needle work more than those who do needle work? Here is the story....these two beauties were made by a Guild Member who no longer has room for them in her home.  The quality of each piece is tops!  At first I thought I would put them on E-bay for her....then I thought...heck I don't even look at E-bay

Snow Peas in the Freezer from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Those are the peas off 3 plants! There are over 100 plants out there.   I don’t mind freezing in small batches but I don’t like running the canner when it’s half full. This ended up giving me 5 – 8 oz. bags of peas and one meal’s worth of shelled peas. The ones that […]

Vintage TV, Sofa and Dress--a l'orange from Not Afraid of Color

Shall we put on our dress and pearls, sit on the sofa drinking some Tang, and see what's on TV??
Why, it's a baking show!

You know we baked a LOT in the sixties!!

I even made Eclairs as a young thing in the 70's

I especially like this TV with it's many knobs, space theme, and bright red legs! Wish I had one of these too!


I found this little scrap given by a friend, in my orange collection, so it had to be pieced in right??

One of the bakers had to be appliqued ...

Een vrolijk mandje met vakantieherinneringen.... from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer


In een klein wolwinkeltje in Marmaris ( Turkije) kocht ik vorige jaar september deze 10 





bolletjes van DMC, Natura, just cotton. Ik kocht dit setje niet met een bepaald patroon of plan voor ogen maar puur omdat ik de kleurtjes bij elkaar zo mooi vond!






En waar ik vroeger ( lang geleden) altijd oorbellen kocht als souvenir kocht ik nu heel veel garen. Niet alleen deze 10 dus maar nog veel meer...






Ik koos voor ieder twee bolletjes à 50 gram in de kleuren: N26 Blue Jeans, N05 Blue Layette, N28 Zaphire, N02 Ivory en het groene bolletje N48 Chartreuse.

Inmiddels heb ...

Doughty Rowdies from Material Obsession

Dowdys Rowdys

Empty Spools at Asilomar was a unique opportunity to teach and enjoy the company of quilters!  The self named group of my Love Birds workshop participants shown here are the "Doughty Rowdies".  Each and every one of them brought their own perspective, color palette and experience to the party.  I loved watching the room turn into a colorful circus as we all got inside out!  I loved every minute of our experience together and look forward to going back to Empty Spools in 2018!!  Thanks to all of you for a fun week!

Over five days we bared our souls ...

A Blessed Life...Here Comes the Bride from Wollie Mammoth

Truly Death Valley is spectacular and I can't stop looking at the photos.  It is worth the drive to get there but we will be reviewing the Furnace Creek RV park on a future episode of The Quilt Roadies.   In fact we will be reviewing all the RV parks we have stayed at so you can make a decision about your own trip.  



I have continued to stitch away on this Christmas table mat by Primitive Gatherings  I really love those plastic ball holders for Valdani thread that I got from Bird Brain Designs.  They keep the ball of ...

Busy Sewing from Susie's Sunroom

April Work

I have been sewing , in between some "spring cleaning" projects.  (After I do the job, I get to sew as my "reward!"  Does anyone else do this?)

Been AFK for a While from Cats in the Quiltoriium

Been AFK, or away from keyboard for a while. It still feels a little odd to go this many days without working at my desk. But life is good. Few freelance writing jobs to work on this week, until today. There is a lot of outdoor work to tend to, and after that, I tend to sit downstairs and do some handwork to relax.

My easily distracted craftiness has made me:

  • Stall out on finishing piecing my large hexie project



  • Start another crazy small (half-inch)hexie project, making it up as I go along. Going to be a Christmas wreath ...

Piecing With Those Silk Fabrics from Quilting on the Edge

Well I decided to dive in and start piecing a wall quilt with the silk fabrics. This has gone fairly easily and so far I haven't really suffered from it slipping when I sew pieces together.
Here's what I've done so far, it's about 23 by 28 inches. I guess I don't suffer from lack of color do I? Looking forward to the quilting part, i'm thinking I'll do some sort of curvy lines. First I need to figure out a border about 3 inches in width. Thinking it will have black in ...

April Finish from Hills Creek Quilter

 I didn't have too much time for quilty things this month, but I did manage to finish one quilt.


This is a good-sized throw using a variety of floral fabrics that I've had in my stash for years. The pattern is Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Mountain Majesties. There's a lot of cutting and sewing and cutting and sewing, but overall, the pattern is quite easy.

Here's a closeup of some of the fabrics...


That's another 16 fat quarters used up from my stash. And a few yards for backing! No new fabric was purchased for ...

Easy Pieced (Sort of) Backing from Hills Creek Quilter


Almost all of the quilts I've made in the last couple of years have pieced backings made with various fabrics from my stash. This is the back of a quilt that I blogged about a few weeks ago, (you can see it here). The four fabrics in the center are actually all one fabric. There are no seams; the four patterns are printed horizontally on the same bolt of fabric, so there is the equivalent of one-quarter yard (11 inches by 36 inches) of each print in one yard off of the bolt. This piece had been sitting in ...
