Gnomies from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

I have always loved gnomes and have them tucked all about my home. I love them just as much as snowmen, shhhh maybe more. Gnomes remind me of my dad who had a large set of garden gnomes that used to decorate the front of our house, (until some scrooge took them. I hope those mischievous gnomes play many tricks of whom ever has them now.) What I love about gnomes is that you can leave these guys up all year round! I drew up a set of three that I put on a tea towel. They turned out adorable ...

Texture & Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Scarlet Macaw colour board at Clever Chameleon Quilting

Have you ever played with texture on a quilt?

3D challenge logo by Island Batik

You know me, I often like to experiment with texture and embellishments in my quilt projects. Quilting is for me where “art meets sewing”. Two itches, one colossal scratching!

So when Island Batik announced that December was 3D month for the 2019 Ambassadors, I was in both ecstasy and agony. Right up my alley…. but, oh! Which alley to choose!?!? Thing is, I just about need a street directory for all my alleys. I didn’t even have to make up any new projects for this challenge, and I still had ...

Cupcakes and Ornaments – Day 05 of 12 Days… from Seams To Be Sew

Sadly, I’ve been without internet most of yesterday, and most of today. It finally came back on about an hour ago and I got to finishing up the uploading of the patterns. I was writing this post yesterday when it went down and stayed down. Apparently the troubles with the neighbor’s cable were not done with, they had to come and fix something in the ground.. Tore up the road and everything yesterday. So I’m writing this post really fast on a Saturday to get it out to you. I do have a doctor’s appointment first ...

~ Christmas Joy by Just Let Me Quilt ~ from Podunk Pretties

HELLO Happy Quilters!  Friday at last!  How many of you are like me and planning a private quilting retreat in your sewing room?  I bet I'm not the only one with few Christmas sewing projects on the to-do list.  For me these are the best retreats.  I prepared for this 3 day quilting retreat by cooking ahead for Mr. Podunk.  If he doesn't want to eat Taco Soup leftovers all weekend there's frozen pizza and cold cuts in the fridge.   The only thing that could interrupt my pajama quilting retreat is unexpected company.  But to be honest ...

On The Naughty List – 12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun Day 04… from Seams To Be Sew

Hard to believe we are now on day 04 of 12 Days. It always just goes by so quickly when I hold this event each year and it just seems to get more and more frantic. I know I am a bit late posting today, but I slept until just after noon today with having to get all the stuff done I normally do in a day on the internet done last night, so having to get everything ready to get this posted took me a few hours. Today’s post is all about those memories I have of getting ...

Three Stitching Projects, There's Power in Kindness from Canadian Needle Nana

As I ate my late breakfast, oatmeal, walnuts and blueberries, this morning...

I thought of this.
Hubby lies down every day for a nap and it is not a factor of his age; he has been able to achieve this feat as long as memory serves him. He can be reminding me of our car appointment or what to say if so and so calls and the next moment be breathing deeply like somebody already past the dreaming stage. I marvel at this. As you know sleep is like a foreign country to me and I definitely can't lie ...

Pat Sloan Nov Button club pic 1

*** Project ***

My FREE wreath pattern is very quick to do!  And I must say I gave myself a challenge with this one that I'll explain below.  The Fat Quarter Shop's button club kit is called 'Jolly' so I used the letters on the sashing! Then decorated the wreath with the super cute buttons. 

My Pattern Download is after my tutorial below along with the fabrics and supplies I used

12 Days of Cute Christmas Fun … Day 03 from Seams To Be Sew

I am so so sorry… my internet has been down long before I even got up this morning to write the post and get the patterns uploaded. I have no idea what time it went down, but the cable guy was outside of the neighbor’s house all day I gather trying to get it fixed. I finally have internet again, so I am getting these up very quickly now. Today’s pattern is a lovely hot cup of cocoa with a cinnamon stick. Who doesn’t love hot cocoa in the wintertime let alone at Christmas? Please note, because ...
