The Positivity QAL - Finished Flimsy Linky Party from Sew Preeti Quilts

This blogpost is late but I have a very good reason for it...a very cute and furry reason :-)

Louie - our new fur baby

Meet Louie. We brought him home yesterday afternoon.  Louie's rescue dad is moving and could not take him along. We were only too happy to adopt him. The car ride was not fun for him and the thunderstorms did not help. He has been exploring his new environment and is a little skittish. We are getting to know him as he gets to know us. 


Why yes, I live with two handsome males

This is (mostly) a rant!!! from Sew Preeti Quilts

Warning - this is a rant. Proceed at your own risk.

I had neither the time nor the desire to write this post. But I had to because I was so seething with anger and disgust. And if not here then where else?

Let's call her Auntie Marilyn. I am so tempted to use her full name, but I am not going to. Because I am better than that.

Let's start at the very beginning. The year was 2015 when Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Company shared this tutorial on youtube.  You can buy the pattern Double Square ...

Oxygen from Sew Preeti Quilts

It started with Bernie.  She held a contest and a giveaway. I did not win. Emily did. 
But then Emily forfeited her prize so it came to me. A charm pack of Moda Wovens.

A charm pack of seemingly plain (black, white and gray) fabrics did not match anything in my stash. I should've just set it aside to be addressed at a later date because January was hugely busy month for me. There was the IB Unboxing Video and post (nerve-racking), making of placemats (first IB project) and the challenge of being the first in the IB Create ...

Autumn on the Blue Ridge Tablescape from From My Carolina Home

Nothing is more beautiful than Autumn in the Blue Ridge mountains.  We are so lucky to live here, and the explosion of color in the trees is wonderful, even in a year that has been too warm for too long.  Finally, we are seeing some of the Autumn glory, now that the temperatures are getting cooler at night.  It is the ideal time to showcase a pretty table of Autumn leaves. Now, here is the fun surprise, another free pattern to come! Bernie from Needle and Foot sent me some fabrics she will have in a bundle, and I have ...
