When you fall off the horse … from Stash Overflow

Get back on. No, I haven’t been horse riding. The horse I fell off of was keeping notes about what I’ve done in the studio and writing about them. Even though I wasn’t keeping notes all the time, I’ve got a lot to share.

4/23 – I sorted the scrap bin from the garage. Yay! All the scraps have now been sorted and I have an empty bin to put to use doing other things.

I also completed the assembly of the fussy cut animal quilt body (i.e., no borders yet). I have since ordered ...

Rite of Spring from Stash Overflow

Everyone has been asking how it got to be April already. Count me in that group. Didn’t I just report my January progress last week? I feel like I haven’t done much but I’ve been really busy doing it. Saturday I completed that annual requirement of filing income taxes. I was quite agitated by the time that was done. The Republicans’ so-called tax cut resulted in an increase in my taxes of $4500 over 2017. Yikes! I headed to the studio to calm down.

A couple of years ago I matched my floral fabrics with greens and ...

January Projects from Stash Overflow

We have a bunch of geese that commute to the farm near my house every morning. Every night they fly back to their night time hangout. Their flight path is right over my house so we hear them every morning and evening.

A couple of weeks ago we had extremely cold temperatures for this area thanks to the Polar Vortex. This pond where the geese like to hang out froze over. I decided to stop and take a picture last week. I was surprised to see that the geese are sitting and standing on ice. When they’re not on ...

I’m Delusional! from Stash Overflow

Every year in Mimi Dietrich’s Grad School class, a project is chosen for the group to do. Most of the folks participate but not all. It’s fun to see 20-30 versions of the same project. Some years Mimi makes an executive decision and sometimes we get to vote. For 2019 Mimi wanted to do some design by Lori Holt but when she put it to a vote, she was soundly defeated. Only a few people wanted to do such a simple applique design. More on 2019 later.

One year we couldn’t agree on a single project and ...

WIP Baltimore Garden quilt...Progrès sur la Baltimore... from Accroquilt

 1 hour in the morning, 1 hour in the afternoon:  it's my routine for the quilting of my Baltimore Garden quilt on my domestic sewing machine.
Everything is going very well and it's almost meditation.  

Je pique ma Baltimore Garden quilt  sur ma machine à coudre domestique au rythme de 1 heure le matin et 1 heure l'après-midi.  Tout va très bien et c'est presque de la méditation à regarder l'aiguille monter et descendre se placer là où on le désire.


For the first three blocks, threads was buried as soon as the stitching of ...
