I think the rich tones of the tulips are stunning against the quiet neutrals. If you have basic appliqué and paper piecing skills, you can make this cheery spring project in no time at all ...
We’ve been smitten by the tuffets everyone is whipping out these days, and so we decided to make a couple for ourselves. We used the pattern and all of the finishing supplies from the Tuffet Source, because we thought we may actually finish this project if we did. Then we gathered up some of our […]read more
Our offices are closed today due to “Stella” the current blizzard along the East Coast. And even though we didn’t get as much actual snow as predicted (about 18″), the heavy, icy pellets, freezing rain and wind are even more treacherous! And what does that mean? It’s Mugrug Weather, time to choose your favorite coffee, tea, hot toddy, cocoa or other warm and cozy beverage, and give it a pretty and proper place to sit on your table or desk.
It’s also a perfect time to show off some of the inspiring entries that have come in ...read more
I used solid fabrics for my egg, but there are many cute Easter fabrics to choose from that would be perfect for this project. Use this pattern as a table runner or hang it on the wall as a pretty Easter wall art. It measures 16" x 22" and the design is exclusive to Cut, Stitch + Piece quilt designs.
Create a pretty wall hanging for your spring decor . . .

This stunning quilted table topper was inspired by the Christmas Cactus that blooms throughout the Christmas season. The pattern includes instructions for both versions shown below. Finished size for both versions is 26" x 26" (65cm x 65cm) and the finished block size is 6 ...

- Master bedroom painted. Check. Next up on the list will be the new window treatments, starting with Roman Blinds (hopefully will start tomorrow?)
- I'm attempting to put together a portfolio of quilts. All quilts have been dragged out, lightly spritzed, and then rolled into tubes on the diagonal in an attempt to remove the fold lines so they can be photographed. The photos need to be taken outside on an ...
Diane’s front porch bench needed a Valentine-themed pillow for the upcoming holiday. We used our Patchwork by Fusible Grid Tutorial to whip up this gorgeous and easy pixel hearts pillow, so check that post for the particulars on a project like this. Arrange your squares in the design you want, and fuse them down. It […]read more
The central medallion gave me some challenges as far as quilting designs, but I think it turned out well.
Six borders. Yah.
This is the only way you can see the Celtic Braid design in the outer border.

This does not qualify. My advice, if you are expecting customers, is to NOT dress like this. I was painting the bedroom. That took me longer than I anticipated, and the customers arrived earlier than anticipated, so, you know... I look bad.
Speaking of painting ...
Hey there makers!
First off, you all had a HAPPY NEW YEAR and that you are ready to accomplish all kinds of goals this year! I know I sure am! I think this year I’m going to try to conquer garment sewing. One saying that has been lingering in my head since New Year struck is “when life gives you lemons make lemonade.” I know it may seem silly but, we have to be happy with how far we’ve gotten in life and we must take advantage of our experiences and move forward to make the New Year ...
This is a simple ...
This is such a fun month to decorate, I get to see all my turkeys again. This year, the kitchen counter is graced with a lovely bouquet of flowers that DH brought me recently, just because. The pretty apricot color flowers went nicely with a large turkey and a small pie pumpkin.
I like this grouping a lot. They are sitting on my Autumn Jubilee quilt along two-block mat. Speaking of quilt alongs, I have had a few new followers in the past couple of days, I think to participate with the Scrap Dance Waltz quilt along. I want to ...read more

Earlier this fall, we pulled the trigger on a new dining room table. It was long overdue and it's certainly a step up from our 14-year-old Ikea table. My husband and I kept joking that with this purchase we can finally be called grown-ups. When it's fully extended it seats 12 which is perfect for a family of 3. :) But in all seriousness, it's exactly what we need since we've hosted Christmas every year since moving to Florida. And this year we're hosting Thanksgiving too.
The moment this table was delivered, I slapped some old ...
Isn't it amazing how quickly you can finish a project when you finally dedicate the time to it? I had only just posted about it on Sunday and it was finished Monday evening. I'd been procrastinating on making the last window treatment in our living room for months and I'm not even sure why. Maybe it was because it required a trip to the hardware store, maybe because I was going to have to match up the pattern on the fabric. Whatever the underlying reason for putting it off, I finally decided to tackle it because we ...read more
November is one of my all-time favorite months. Nature's color palette of orange, rust, deep red, and brown always makes me smile. I think that is why orange is one of my favorite colors. I love decorating the house for fall, with bright orange mums and pumpkins everywhere. Unfortunately, here in Florida, we don't see all of those brilliant colors in nature. Lucky for me, though, when it comes to decorating for autumn nobody does it better than Disney.
Of course, this is also when I go into holiday prep mode, trying to finish all those handmade Christmas ... read more
