Sewing in the Polar Vortex from Luann's Loose Threads

We are just coming out of the Polar Vortex.   Schools here were closed both Wednesday and Thursday, and at one point our temperature was -10 degrees, and the wind chill was -41 degrees.   I just trusted the weather forecasters that this was bone chilling cold, and I stayed inside.  It's a bit warmer today, and we had some snow overnight.   It's not enough to completely cover the grass.  Before spring, I would just like one huge dump of snow.  And, I would like for it to snow during the day so I can watch it pile up.  I ...

Slowly back to work.......... from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I did get a fair amount done yesterday considering that I also spent a lot of time visiting.

Let's just say that I need to get this recipe for the lentil soup and I should plan on making one big pot each Sunday afternoon. It's so easy to just whip that pot back on the stove and heat it up for lunch. I swear it gets better each time we heat it up!! And much better for me than store-bought. How hard can it be to cut up some veggies and throw in some lentils?

Those oatmeal cookies ...

Merry Christmas!!!! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Merry Christmas to everyone!!

It's weird and just a sign that life is passing us by. M is home for Christmas with James and of course little Bear. I guess it's technically our first Christmas with the whole family together. We didn't do a lot of shopping, I didn't do a lot of decorating. That's not what Christmas is all about. It's about being together and enjoying each other's company. We do have a "tree" with decorations - I'll share that with you tomorrow once all the presents get under it.

I'm ...

Progress report from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I'm feeling so much better today! The fuzzy head seems to have cleared up and that's a good thing. I didn't get much done yesterday and I'm OK with that. Yes - I have a sinus issue but will head to the drug store this morning to get something.

The big news of yesterday - we have company. The little man is back and he brought his handler this time. The handler is off to the airport right now to pick up the boyfriend. Oh yes - it's going to be a fun Christmas. It sure feels weird ...

Puzzled from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I did something yesterday that I haven't done in a long time. I slept over 12 hours!! Fell asleep on the couch around 4:30 in the afternoon and got out of bed at 5:30 this morning.

I had some running around to do in the morning including the sobering visit to the car dealer to find out the approximate value of my car and the price of buying a new one. Oh boy! But more on that another day - I'm not quite at the point that I need to make a commitment.

When I was driving ...

A wake up call! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I'm a pretty healthy and fit person. I hope to remain active for a long, long time and I've made some choices this past year. I decided that I wanted to get back down to an ideal weight instead of carrying those extra 20-25 pounds around. Imagine carrying a bag of dog food everywhere! Life is so much easier without that extra baggage.

As the year progresses, I remained fairly true to my new lifestyle eating habits. I tried to eliminate most of the refined sugar from my diet as refined sugar is my biggest culprit. The rest ...

What I've been doing............ from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I thought there would be tons to share with you today since technically I haven't posted about my stuff for four days. Hmm - when I edited the pictures this morning, there isn't that much. BUT - there are finishes that constitute a lot of work.

Without further ado, let's have a look.

I got the binding on that bright orange community projects quilt for our guild. Hm - now the question is - should I count this as a finished project? I made the backing, quilted it and bound it. But I didn't make or have any part of ...

User's Groups are a girl's best friend from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

We had the best time ever at Sit n Sew yesterday. I even got stuff done which is a good thing. I don't have time this morning to show you what we all worked on - that's for tomorrow.

I was going to quilt that quilt yesterday when the group was here, but since the customer was actually in the room - I thought that I had better not - just in case something went wrong. The quilt was nicely pieced and laid flat as a pancake. The kind I love to quilt.

As soon as everyone left, I fired up ...
