Next up Pockets from Quilts....etc.

I have done as much as I am going to for now on the sweater without making a collar – I have plenty of yarn so if I want to add that next week I will – but next up is pockets and tack the cuffs in place as they keep falling down.  The crocheted […]

Hexie Magic from Quilts....etc.

Well not really magic but getting in those pieces at the top just makes the whole quilt come together like magic – in a way!  Because this is a much smaller piece than the whole diamond it only takes about an hour to stitch them once they are basted – I will try to work […]

Another Half Hexie from Quilts....etc.

Last night when watching the news I got another half hexie thread basted – and I hope to get it stitched today and maybe make up another one  – because they are smaller they do go together faster!  Lucy will be done before you know it – LOL – not really there are a lot […]

Alaska from Quilts....etc.

Barely anything to post here – I have been caught up in a good new book.  I rarely splurge for new books anymore but there are a few authors still when I buy the kindle version as soon as it comes out and Karen Slaughter is one of my favorites.  The last two days I […]

The Hexie Border from Quilts....etc.

Has begun!  This one piece makes it a step closer to being called done for Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds – but it will take a little while to accomplish that – but one piece of the border makes it closer to a complete rectangle. As you can see from the cut off on […]

Don’t you Love Packages from Quilts....etc.

I love it when a fabric package arrives don’t you.  I know some of you don’t order on line but maybe more of you do now that since the shops had been closed for awhile? I guess most are open now for at least limited hours and if I had one I just might be […]

Yes a little bit here and a little bit there and some reading too – I have not finished the Tall Grass book still and most likely will get that finished today.  The weatherman keeps saying we are going to start a string of days in the very low 80’s and very low 60’s at […]

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds from Quilts....etc.

After thinking about this hexie quilt for a while now I am thinking I might want to not make it large!  I have so many large quilts and many more to make but I already have a quilt of this type that I made few years ago – so this one might end up being […]

Alaska from Quilts....etc.

Well I had planned on taking a whole week off of quilting but that didn’t happen.  I did sit down at the frame a couple days ago to look it over and start to decide a quilting design – I even started and then actually picked stitches out because I didn’t care for it.  I […]

Well not really that much of a garden day other than cutting some oregano first thing in the morning before it got to a very high 96 degrees again! and more tomatoes – I had to add more ties to the plants they are getting so tall and and were starting to bend over – […]
