Tea Anyone? from Quilt Doodle Doodles

I am so excited! Downton Abbey the movie opens this week and I can't wait. My sisters and I have been planning to go see it since we first heard the announcement that it was going to be made! Our tickets are bought and we are sitting in the third row, center in reclining chairs at a local theater. Oh my gosh I just am giddy with excitement to see all my favorite characters again, Anna, Mr. Bates, Lord and Lady Grantham, Mr. Carson just to name a few. So I'm celebrating the opening of the Downton Abbey ...

Quilting Arts & A Rooster from Where Art & Life Meet

A couple years ago I was featured in Quilting Arts Magazine – the Year of the Rooster!   The piece I submitted, entitled Regal Rooster, was made of wool, cotton and silk velvet (that I dyed myself) using a variety of threads, but predominantly Eleganza Perle Cotton from Sue Spargo.  She has the most luscious… Continue reading Quilting Arts & A Rooster

Wishful Thinking: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Wishful thinking colour board at Clever Chameleon

I’ve been doing some Wishful Thinking…..

Child's Play icon with Island Batik

This month’s Island Batik Ambassador challenge has caused me lots and lots of thinking and sketching; drafting and redrafting. My task is to create a 45″ x 60″ or larger quilt for a child or a teen using the AccuQuilt Cleopatra’s Fan block die. They call this innocent-sounding little challenge “Child’s Play”.

Child’s Play?! “Rocket Science” is more like it! </p>

I Got Mail & a Finish! from Heart Desire Creations

img_1514.jpg

Recently the best box of goodies showed up at my doorstep.  A reader from Kansas contacted me.  Her mother, who was an avid quilter, passed away. Just like most quilters, it was no surprise that she had WIPS in her stash that her daughter now wanted to pass on to the Hospice ministry. And WOW! First, was this hand pieced, hand quilted piece. I needed to take it apart a bit to make it into a square, but because she used Georgia Bonesteel’s laptop quilting method, it was easy. I took it apart, rearranged some blocks, sewed it back ...

Sunday Stash September 15, 2019 from Quilt Paint Create

No change in the numbers this week. I visited a quilt shop while traveling but didn’t buy anything. Nothing jumped out and begged me to take it home.
The runner is pieced and the frame sewn down. The decorative stitching goes around the frame before adding the holly applique. That’s today’s goal.
holly runner 2We’re closing in on the end of the third quarter. I’m not sure where this year went, but I didn’t spend near enough of it in the sewing room.

UFO (UnFinished Object) Friday

The last 6 months life has not been at the normal pace for me with loads of things coming up that I didn't plan for. Which have taken time and energy.  And Energy and Time.. and did I say energy yet? how about time?

Nothing Very Inspiring from Quilty Folk

Where to start? I don't seem to do very well with being over-scheduled and/or missing out on having good chunks of time for my own pursuits. In fact, it really messes with my creativity which we all know is of absolute importance in the general scheme of things. Right?

Patchwork Garden applique prep
After fiddling around in the quilting room here and there, mostly wasting time, I finally was able to buckle down and get the applique prepped for Patchwork Garden. This quilt has been quite the roller coaster ride of loving it and then hating it. You ...

Early Day, Early Week, Early Fall from Canadian Needle Nana

This week will be quieter in the garden as rain is in the forecast.

Early evening light gave the Purple Globe Thistle a different look.
So a little more free time to take care of other things hopefully.  Here are some of my TO DO thoughts for this week.
I've bought a new Acer 17 inch laptop to work on and have many photos on my old one. Have to figure out how to coordinate the two but need to cull and group the old ones. A time consuming job whose time has come but will be one of ...
