Workshop Leftovers from Fret Not Yourself

I think of each life as a flower, as common as a field daisy, and as singular.
~Mary Oliver


Quilting


There were so  many leftover pieces from Jane Sassaman's workshop that I simply had to make a second top. This time I decided to sketch an idea that wouldn't be symmetrical. There was only one prepared fat quarter uncut so that was my background by default. The colors are off in the photos but it's peach.

I pulled all my leftovers out and looked them over. There weren't many mirror-images left but there were some large ...

Trip To Mom's from Quilting My Way

This morning Patrick went golfing, and I went to moms. It was quilting day. I took the photos I had to mom and we figured out a couple of them. I need to look for another set downstairs. 


I worked on the block I have been working on at her place. I was able to get the 3 pieces appliqued and readied 2 more. Not exact but close enough. My stitches are bigger, so I need to do this to get them back down. 

Had to stop at Safeway again. Got bread for supper. The split peas that we cooked ...

Hello Friday - And Quilting At Mom's from Quilting My Way

This morning, I was up at 6:30 am because of all the sun coming through the windows. I couldn't go back to sleep even if I tried. 

So, I played on my game and then got ready to go to moms. I stopped at Safeway to pick up a couple things. Once that was done, I arrived at moms with a few people behind me. There were 7 of us today. 

I pulled out the pattern that I needed for the first block. 


Sorry, but this is a copy right issue, so I'm not show the whole ...

Food Hacks, Barred Owls, BB Border Design, Pink Hour Glass Blocks from Canadian Needle Nana

I just have to share the end of another successful Barred Owls of Indiana season. I so enjoyed watching these three grow and then branch successfully off into the big wide world. I really like how the owl parents are so attentive and make sure all three, even the youngest and smallest, hatched days after the first, gets plenty of food. Their eyesight is thought to be better than ours so imagine emerging from the nest box and seeing all the world in front of them for the first time- no wonder they look transfixed. 

BTW, the Cottage Garden Samplings ...

April 2024 OMG Finish from Quilt Paint Create

My OMG for April was finishing the April challenge quilt, which had no name in March. The quilt was based on a pattern called Ruffles by Sew Be It. I ended up naming it Freeze Frame.

I painted the background fabric because I didn’t have anything in my stash that I liked with the reds I picked for the flower petals. The fabric in the flower center was painted years ago and textured with salt. I added a second layer of batting under the center that I thought made it too puffy. I added beads to the center to ...

Sunday Stash April 21, 2024 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week.

I finished the April Challenge quilt, named Freeze Frame, for .75 yards out and more went out from the declutter progress.

The next task on the quilt list is labelling a quilt I entered in a show. I believe a label is required, although I did write the quilt info on the back in permanent marker.

Once that’s done, it’s back to quilting Remember Me.

Fabric In: .33 yards

Fabric out: 13.125 yards

Net Fabric Used: 12.795 yards

How did you do this week?

Sensational Recipe, Bramble Blooms, New Spin on Backbasting from Canadian Needle Nana

My second Odd Bunch box has arrived and I've been very pleased with both of them. For $20 a box, I think they are a good deal. All of the items have been fresh, nothing even close to spoiling or odd.  I am enjoying the variety of items included, a nice selection of vegetables and fruit.

 I got blackberries in the first box, a fruit I never buy so it was neat to try them. It also had a butternut squash in the first and an eggplant in this one. Two things I haven't cooked before.
I cut ...

A Quick Appliqued Apron from Quilt Doodle Doodles


 Someday I hope to have some chickens, I want to be the crazy Ol lady with the hound dogs and chickens that loves to quilt. Sounds like a great retirement, doesn't it? I think it does. In the meantime, I need to be happy with visiting my sister and sister in laws chickens and live vicariously thru them. I can also make cute chicken projects.... today I wanted to show you a quick apron project. The big cheat is to run to Hobby Lobby and pick up an apron that doesn't have any design on it because you ...

Hockey Fun, Stitchy To Do List, My Tiny Video from Canadian Needle Nana

 I thought of some of my blogging friends on Sunday...those who spend time in arenas with the children involved in one sport or another. This is where I was this Sunday...the Kingston Invista Centre, watching Robbie with his team at the final tournament of the year. They'd won all their games right down to the very last one which they lost and there were tears. Life lessons of course, but much satisfaction that the boys had certainly come a long way skill wise. Overall, a wonderful season of hockey. 

On my To Do List this week...

Bramble Blooms, Tiny 9 Patch, Animal Rescue from Canadian Needle Nana

I showed Ned and his fellow chocolate Lab litter mates in this post to celebrate his birthday.   The litter included Petey who stayed with them and Beth made them a cake.

And Ned got to have his piece too which disappeared so fast it's a good thing I took a photo beforehand.
I finished my wonderful Peter Pauper Press Snowman and Friends jigsaw just in time to see the snow leave. Each of these puzzles includes a full poster of the picture which is a great help.
 I finally made a decision about what next for the Bramble Blooms ...

Sunday Stash March 17, 2024 from Quilt Paint Create

I had my first fabric in for the year, a small piece of black Moda Marble I picked up at the thrift.

I finished the candlemat for some fabric out, plus I used a fat quarter for the Spring Angel.

I also picked up a couple patterns from the free table at Guild. I’m proud to have come home with so little after the Guild meeting and stops at a few thrift stores. It could have been a lot worse.

Fabric In: .33 yards

Fabric out: 4.875 yards

Net Fabric Used: 4.545 yards
