Mystery Quilt from Quilts....etc.

Well I didn’t get the quilt on the frame yesterday!  What a day — I was busy.  I got the backing fabric and the batting cut to size in the morning and it is ready – the quilt is laying over the bars of the frame but things just didn’t go right and I never […]

Ciera’s Quilt–Round We Go from Quilts....etc.

Finished – well except for the binding that is.  Getting it off the frame – I actually finished it faster then I thought I would and therefore didn’t have the backing ready for the next quilt so the frame is actually bare for a day! Now I need to look and see what I have […]

Fabric Was Cut & The Scarf Grew from Quilts....etc.

Yes at least a little was done in my house and tree was decorated – I really don’t put out that many decorations and still am not done!  Yesterday it was because I got all caught up in on the funeral of our 41st president – sometimes I watch these things and sometimes I don’t […]

Started the HST’s from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday morning I got busy and cleaned & oiled “Hazel” the featherweight and got busy with the hst’s that were all ready cut.  Got them done and will need to get fabric pressed today and run through the Accuquilt – you can cut about 6 layers at least at one time so it doesn’t really […]

It Was a Busy Day from Quilts....etc.

  Well we did not get the decorations all up and I didn’t do anymore yardwork – but I was busy Sunday anyhow.  I work up to sore hands – holding that blower and raking did them in but I was lucky and the stiffness worked out of them by mid morning.  I was working […]

Must Get Ready for Christmas! from Quilts....etc.

We still have not put up our decorations other than just a couple and really need to get to that today.  We have been working on the yard too and trying to get all the fall leaves under control – and it is hard with this big yard.  Part way done – I had the […]

Such A Nice Day from Quilts....etc.

It got up to 66 degrees yesterday – good thing we got out for a walk today as tomorrow the high will in the morning and drop all day I believe – well be a good day for sewing.  Here are some photos from our walk at the trails. We didn’t see any alligators this […]

And We are Stuffed From Holiday Dinner! from Quilts....etc.

We ate Thanksgiving dinner at about 2 in the afternoon and other than a piece of pie I didn’t eat again the rest of the day!!  I think that is saying I made a pig of myself – or my cooking was good LOL  This was the first year to use my grandma Hazel’s china […]

Christmas Tree Skirt–Progress from Quilts....etc.

Yes I actually got something done yesterday – it was a busy day.  The fabric was pressed for the backing and laid out on the floor – pinning to the carpet, batting stretched out over it and the Christmas tree skirt pin basted. The excess batting and backing was trimmed off so there won’t be […]

A Rather Late Birthday Present from Quilts....etc.

My birthday was in late September while we were travel – I normally pick out my own birthday present.  Instead of something quilting I had seen a Yarn Bowl on line in various places and hoped to find one while we were traveling as we go in and out of so many arts and craft […]

Back to Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Seeing as I am stuck at home for a little while longer more quilting will be done – and I’m working on more soft page books for Melanie’s special needs kids at her reading groups at the library. Some have said that I am dealing with not leaving for our vacation on time very well- […]

Change of Plans from Quilts....etc.

Don’t you just hate it when something happens to change your vacation plans!  We were packing the motorhome yesterday getting ready for our trip and had the A/C running to keep the motorhome cool as we were going in and out packing and all of a sudden no cool air! The coach A/C quit working […]

Storms, Crochet and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Over the last 4 days we have had about 8 inches of rain and more in sight!  Sunday and possibly Monday we are in for more.  It will take forever to dry out.  This is one of the coolest and wettest August that I can remember.  I woke up about 1 or so yesterday morning […]

Not Much To Show from Quilts....etc.

Saturday wasn’t a good day for getting things done.  I don’t know if any of you have had the newest vaccination for Shingles but you have to get a shot and then another one two months later.  I got one in early May with no reaction other than a sore arm but then I had […]

Quilting and Garden from Quilts....etc.

At this time of year I spend less time in the sewing room and more outside – then when it starts to get really hot and humid it is back to being inside more and less outside.  Yesterday I had a busy day – first was some much needed house cleaning and getting laundry started […]

Such a Beautiful Day from Quilts....etc.

My Car is Wounded from Quilts....etc.

Yes I had a little mishap with my car yesterday – I got hit at a stop light – the back fender is going to have to be replaced for sure – but I’m ok and that is what counts and maybe a young man has learned to not follow closely and to not hit […]

Ready for Christmas? from Quilts....etc.

We do not do a lot of shopping for the holidays any more so that makes it easy. Christmas has gotten too commercialized.  I remember when I was a kid – one of 12 – a very long time ago in a galaxy far away in a place called Wisconsin next to Lake Michigan – […]

More Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Considering I was gone for half the day with a trip to Little Rock for my quarterly check up it is not surprising I didn’t get much if any sewing done.  While in Little Rock we went out for lunch of course and then over to Sam’s before we headed home.  Mike was going to […]

Working on Decorating from Quilts....etc.

I must admit I am not really all that much into Christmas this year – I don’t know why – usually I am raring to go to get the house decorated and this year my feet are dragging.  We got started yesterday, ran out of lights – misplaced? used too many to start – I […]
