Australian Update from Quilting with Kimberly

Pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in for a newsy update…

Many of you have been following our newest big adventure I first wrote about last summer. (In case you missed it, CLICK HERE.) Admittedly, my blog posts were rather sparse during the last quarter of 2021 because we put our plan into motion and my husband actually made the big transition and moved down under in early November. We spent the holidays apart for the first time in 34 years, but we chose to make the season merry despite our circumstances. As for my poor husband’s ...

Farewell 2021, hello 2022 from Quilting with Kimberly

Let the sun set on 2021……

I’ve sat down to write a blog post dozens of times. I’ve written paragraphs, then deleted them and tried to write again. Always the same: I just couldn’t find the right words. I try to be very mindful when I do write a blog post, I never want to add to the “noise” of this clamoring world. There’s already too much negativity and nonsense being put into the universe. I don’t wish to contribute more of the same. But it’s time for an update and what better time ...

Quiet Time for Christmas Eve from From My Carolina Home

Earlier this week, we had a lovely dinner with friends, then drove over to the Lake Julian Festival of Lights, a drive through light show with part of the proceeds benefiting Special Olympics. This one is much smaller than the big Tryon show, or the ones that take up a stadium parking lot, but has more charm. The path winds around the park next to Lake Julian, a small lake in Arden, NC. The night was overcast with rain on the way. The almost full moon can be seen at the top of the photo. The main display had a ...

All Those Last Minute Details from From My Carolina Home

Wow, it is just a few days to Christmas, where has this year gone? December comes in with such anticipation, and then I run out of time. Thankfully, the decorating is much simpler now, with carloads going to the thrift store and not having every horizontal surface in the house covered in Christmas. I finished all my shopping last week with a frantic day of figuring out a different gift for My Sweet Babboo when the one I ordered looked like it wasn’t ever going to come. The company won’t answer emails, or respond to contact forms, and ...

Holiday Spirit from Sew Sunshine

Trying really hard here get that holiday spirit going. I hurt my back before Thanksgiving and have been watching numerous holiday movies. Normally I don't go there but I found out they are in abundance out there. Since being lade up, it has been kind of nice watching. I know many are sorta sappy but occasionally you find the diamond in the rough. 
Anyway I spent quite a bit of time not moving around much. To get me going, I decided to cut some curves and decided to do the QCR Giving Tree pattern by Sew Kind of ...

Happy Holidays with Free Tutorials from From My Carolina Home

Friday after Thanksgiving is a fun day. Most years, I do not leave the house that day as it is the time to put the 1947 version of Miracle on 34th Street on the DVD player, take down all the autumn decorations and begin to put up Christmas. Of course, this weekend begins the shopping frenzy for those with gifts to buy. I miss that as the family has stopped doing gift exchanges, so I only need to shop for My Sweet Babboo and his 101 year old mom. In recent years, we’ve gotten her things she can eat ...

Happy Thanksgiving! from From My Carolina Home

This is my favorite day of the year! We’ll begin the day with my baked eggs breakfast, have some nibbles through the parades and football games, and enjoy our turkey dinner in the early evening. I promised a photo of the pilgrims with the little mini quilt from Autumn Jubilee a few years back. I put them with the little quilt on a stand with a pumpkin topper, a little turkey and rust color candles in clear depression glass candlesticks with silk flower candle rings.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is a tradition in our home, to be enjoyed ...

» Jean's Quilting Page

We had our holiday guild party the other night and part of the fun was exchanging handmade postcards. We were to send them through the mail either by themselves or in an envelope. I received this one...isn't it the cutest? 

This is the one I made and sent to her. We both used envelopes to send ours, but some members did send them through the mail. It was a fun challenge and really got us thinking "small". 

I'm on the Activities Committee for next year so have been planning a few challenges for our members. We are ...

Autumn Jubilee Halloween Fun from From My Carolina Home

When we moved to our home in the mountains, we knew that there wouldn’t be any trick or treaters who would hike up here. So, for many years, Halloween was not a big deal. That is, until we joined the MINI club and began going to the annual costume party. Now, it is fun to do a little tablescape, make some pumpkin recipes and sew a table topper or a wall hanging or even a new costume. On this table, skulls and black webs bubble out of a black cauldron with happy pumpkins nestled in the leaves.

My Halloween ...
