Work Night at the “Fire Station” from Jo's Country Junction

On Thursday night I got a call from Craig.  I was in Lacrosse in the hospital with Kramer.  He said, “Hey the firemen got done with their stuff at the fire station and we decided to come to your house and do some work.  How wide do you want the landscaping around the fence by the garage?”

What??  How cool.  Then he went on to explain that the house siding that had hail damage had been replaced.

He said the that trees in front of the house were being trimmed.

Right now the trees hang a little low for vehicles ...

I'm tired and my feet hurt from WAZOO! Newsbits

We sat down and talked about the future of Wazoo today. There is a rack loaded with customer quilts to be done, and we whittle away at it every day. I work 7 days a week, from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM. Mr Wazoo works in the man cave a couple of days a week, and the rest in the yard. I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed with it all, and we both agree, scaling back is in the cards.I will do the custom quilts that we have here, but no more. We'll do fine with pantographs ...

Our 2019 mystery lock in quilt from Always Quilts

We held our lock in back in March but because another quilt shop did the mystery a few weeks later, it kept us from sharing this years quilt until after they hosted the mystery. I can happily say that the mystery has been solved and the pattern is now available in our Etsy shop. This years mystery is called Road to Ireland. We have seen many quilts finished in awesome colors!! It’s always fun to see the color choices that are used in the mystery. My quilt was made using a few Kaffe prints, some hand dyed fabrics as ...

Whale Photography and Whale Watching from Baby Geniuses Fabric Collections

As a wildlife photographer, I have taken a few images of some of Nature’s smallest creatures, like the incredible Hummingbirds, and her biggest, the Blue Whale – the largest animal living on our planet, ever. Cetaceans, the term used to describe porpoises, dolphins and whales, are mammals, just like ourselves. They are warm-blooded, have mammary glands to feed their young, possess a four chambered heart and have hairs on their bodies. Like all mammals, whales breathe oxygen. They surface to exhale and take in a quick breath before submerging. During the past few centuries of rentless commercial whaling, this behavior ...

Wood flooring have returned to reputation with a vengeance. 100 years in the past, hardwood flooring have been, for essentially the most half, the one ground sort obtainable to the general public.

Block lotto quilt from Ellyn's Place

A couple months ago, I won a big stack of block lotto blocks at the McKinney Modern Quilt Guild! The blocks were navy and white rectangles. At first I wasn't quite sure what to do with them. Then, at a sew day with friends, they helped me shape them into bigger square blocks! Here are five of those big blocks, each one containing 8 small rectangle blocks....
I played with them on my design wall at home for quite a while before I came up with the final layout. Putting them on point and adding coral "kisses" triangles was ...

Keeping Calm & Weaving On...Not EasyPeasy from CollectInTexas Gal

 I am always trying to keep my Facebook Banners updated with whatever world of Fiber Art in which I am immersed or overdoing.  Currently, I am immersed, involved, caught up, occupied, engaged and engrossed (thanks synonym AtoZ Challenge) in pattern weaving.  As usual with something new to me, the OverDoSue is creeping in with the need to search and sort through pattern books and so far just about every 4 Shaft 6 Treadle Pattern Draft on Pinterest.  OMG there are so many!

In the effort to make said banners interesting and eye catching...I'm getting a chance to highlight ...

Community {Part II} from Factotum of Arts

Part II of my community posts is about how you can foster your community with your own group activity, in this case a traveling quilt.  This past year, I had the amazing pleasure to work with Melanie, Valerie, Melissa, Jen, and Sarah in a traveling quilt group. I knew all these wonderful working mum’s before we formed this group and knew that we had similarities and an interest in modern quilting. I think its important to work with a group of people you know and so things like style, fabric choice and techniques are important.
