Weekend Shenanigans from Mama Spark's World

It was a very slow sewing weekend. I did finish binding a baby quilt but I can't share it just yet. I started on this circle of geese and I have to say I forgot how fun this pattern is. I have half finished. I did this in a swap a LONG time ago and it took me so much longer to make then. I guess my paper piecing is improving! Since there is not much sewing, I will just share cats.

Mad Science Quilt (Pattern Tester edition) from Mama Spark's World

Anyone on Instagram knows that they use an algorithm for viewing posts.   This means that you don't often see the posts as they are written. I find it super annoying! Well, the other day I signed on and there was an amazing pattern by Quiltgenius (Mary Smith)  for a Mad Science quilt.   She had put out a call for pattern testers but with a VERY tight deadine  (especially for me, since I

WIPs With Friends from Mama Spark's World

This past week went wooshing by for me!   Hubby took the fifth wheel out on Thursday for a trial camping run.   He has it parked for 2 weeks at a campground about an hour from our house.   I went there on Friday and stayed until Monday.   I brought the kittens up there to stay with him for the weeks.   I will go back and stay this coming weekend.   This was also the trial run for seeing

Cats and Friends from Mama Spark's World

There is a hashtag on Instagram called #melissapaintmycat.   I tag my cat photos of the boys and Hallie on there all the time.   Well...Melissa painted my cat!!  She painted Hallie!   I, of course, had to buy the painting.  It looks just like her!   Sometimes she does cartoonish ones but this one looks just like Hal. This is the photo I tagged. Then, you must remember the

WIPs With Friends from Mama Spark's World

Since instituting my Google monthly goal spreadsheet with my friends I find  I am being even more productive than I was before.   It is crazy, but I put some pretty lofty goals on it each month then kill myself to achieve those goals.  Now, every month won't be like that but for now it is working for me. I have been working on some binding (with a helper of course) My oldest

Vacation Loot from Mama Spark's World

I thought I would do a quick post with most of the things I picked up while I was away. A certain someone was particularly happy that I was home! First up, I found some Kinder! At the shop in Glendale, Ohio.   I love the apples and the frogs.   I am also collecting dark greens for an MSU quilt.   If you happen to have any that read like in this photo and would like to share  a 5"

Chubby Chick Quilt Progress from Mama Spark's World

I have been working very hard to get all the blocks made for this quilt.   I had everything all cut out from MANY years ago  when I made one with the church group I was a part of.   Theirs got finished, D'oh! I had this entire quilt all cut out and the chicks were fused.   I just realized last night that everything had to be cut down though.   So after I sewed my HST it was time to trim

Shop Hop from Mama Spark's World

I don't think I shared this with you all.   On Thursday, my daughter called me at work and needed a favor.   She has a barn cam in her barn and noticed that some of the bigger birds had knocked over the heat lamp and she was worried the straw could catch fire and burn her barn down.   Would I please drive over to her house and turn off the lamp?   This was around 11:30 in the morning and I
