Too Hot! from Quilts....etc.

I hate it when it is so hot here – it is uncomfortable to be on the porch past 9 AM which means if you don’t get outside first thing don’t bother.  I was outside watering the garden last night at 7PM and it was 88 degrees – but the sun was behind the trees […]

Hexies and Plants from Quilts....etc.

I have been told by several readers now that use Bloglovin that my post are not showing up on their reader – I have heard from one that said more than my blog is not showing up so it is not a problem on my end and nothing I can do about it – either […]

Hexies and Plants from Quilts....etc.

I had enough hexies thread basted yesterday to sew one row together – Just laying down next to it – I think I will put 5 rows together first then attach to the body – then do the opposite end and then the sides.  Linking up to Em’s Scrapbag & Love, Laugh,Quilt &  Cooking Up […]

Handful of Scraps from Quilts....etc.

I have been very undecided on how I want to finish my Handful of Scraps quilt which you all haven’t seen for several months – that is because I have been taking a break from it while deciding how I want to finish it.  This is where I left it at in May –  Here […]

A Little Done from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was one of those days when I just didn’t feel like working with the sewing.  The hexie quilt is now completely appliqued to the background fabric but I need to work on the mitered edges to get it all smooth and correct.  Right now the corners are basted so it will be easy to […]

Beautiful Day from Quilts....etc.

The sun was shining – that was great – it made me feel more awake than I have in days.  I had bought two ferns and I spent some time transplanting them into larger hanging baskets.  I wish ferns didn’t come pot bound.  I always take them out and hang them in bigger pots so […]

Handful of Scraps from Quilts....etc.

While I am stitching down the 3rd border for Handful of Scraps I decided to lay it on the floor and play with border ideas a little bit – this is just playing for now – I have not decided what I am doing at this point.  I might do something totally different – maybe […]

This and That from Quilts....etc.

By time I got home yesterday from my doctor’s appointment and my Reclast IV treatment I was exhausted!  Talk about a delay in the lab area – I don’t know if they had several out sick or on vacation or what but I have never seen it that packed before – I walked into the […]

Flannel, Hexies and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Like I thought it was a very chilly day yesterday and the wind didn’t make it feel any warmer and it was cloudy  – when you go from capris and sandals to jeans, sweat shirt and socks you know it is chilly.  The heat was back on last night and will be for three nights […]

Time to get a new quilt started!  Finally I have cut into the fabric for the first flannel quilt kit that I bought over a year ago from Craftsy!  I am so pleased so far with the amount of fabric that was included – so far there seems to be triple the amount of fabric […]

Managed to get a little work done on the hexies but will finish this side I image sometime later today as rain will start late afternoon and the work in the garden will need to wait until later in the week again as it will be wet again unless most of  the rain misses us. […]

On to the Border from Quilts....etc.

Not a lot of work done yesterday on quilts.  It took awhile just cutting fabric, measuring large pieces, figuring out borders for miter’s and such – is a big problem for me at times!  Math is not my strong suit.  Here I have things laid out on the table just looking things over and playing […]
