Every Quilt Tells A Story from From the Strawberry Patch...

Back in the spring our daughter-in-law's father asked me if I could help him; he wanted to make a quilt to give to his wife to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their first date. Naturally, the first question I asked was "when's the anniversary?" He told me that it was in mid-November. "Sure", I said, "there's plenty of time, be thinking about what you'd like, design-wise". Since then, off and

wedding, reunions, and anniversaries . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I said May's a wrap in my last post . . . but I forgot to take into account our day on the lake with our favorite local grands!
Before we headed out, we stopped to put gas in the boat.  We were docked behind a sweet cabin cruiser that was sweetly named!
So we celebrated Memorial Day in the water.  It was still a little cool, but all the girls wanted to swim and splash, so we did.  Purple lips and all! Seriously, once I got in, I knew I had to stay in, or I'd never take the plunge ...

Pumping Up The Volume from From the Strawberry Patch...

After getting the Star Flower quilt all quilted and the binding attached, I needed a bit more color saturation to brighten the day. I dug deep into my bin of 4.5" square scraps and after a quick pass through the die cutter I set to work on this scrappy hexagon quilt. It's vibrant and fun. I have half of it pieced as it's shown here on the design wall. It will measure 56" X 72" at completion,

Marriage & An Anniversary from Where Art & Life Meet

Today is my 20th wedding anniversary to this guy. To say that I feel lucky doesn’t begin to tell the whole story. We met at a Christmas party on Christmas Day in 1998. Neither of us were expecting to meet the person that would completely change our lives, and yet, that’s exactly what happened. I… Continue reading Marriage & An Anniversary

splashing into autumn . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Hey hey!  Just checking in before we head into the weekend.  We enjoyed a lovely, beautiful day on the lake on Monday.  The weather couldn't have been more cooperative.  We're at that time of the year where sometimes the water, at 85 degrees, is warmer than the air temp!
That means we spend LOTS of time in the water (because it's too cold to come out)!  The girls had a blast splashing and swimming. Edith even decided it was her day to jump off the boat into the water, multiple times.  She was a champ!  But we ...

2000 posts! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


I don't know about you, but 2,000 seems like a big number. If it were in dollars, I'd be smiling pretty big, right? There you go--big! As it is, I'm smiling anyway. It seems this year will be a years of celebration. First, we've crossed the 300 mark for Pin It Weekly. As of today 2000+ posts. And later this year, we'll cross the ten year anniversary. 



It feels rather surreal to have started out as just a way of dealing with the pain of my mom's death (oh, the posts I've ...
