Next Project from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

On Tuesday I pulled out this project that's been in a bin for many moons: The strips of dark fabrics were already cut but I still needed to cut them down into the designated squares so I worked on those. I also pulled some neutrals and got those cut: Lots of cutting! : This is where I'm headed: It's in this book: I like so many of Carrie Nelson's patterns. I liked a lot of her

spike and valley block from Making A Lather

I am reorganizing my projects( always) that I keep in my sewing room. I keep long term ufos somewhere else, and like to keep on -going projects in my room for easy access. I still have last year's projects in the room, and hope to move them out to make room for what I am currently making.
Every time I am sure one needs to move, I am so tempted to drop everything else, and work on the old project "just" a little longer.
I started this block using a new bloc loc ruler. At the start, I cut ...

New Project from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

The other morning I woke up to this text from our girl: "Brooke told me yesterday that Nat's gonna be a big sister; she's due in July... So this is my formal request for a baby quilt." I'm tickled our girl asked me to make a quilt for these friends and co-workers. They are going to wait until the baby is born to find out the gender. I love that. Life seems to be so micromanaged these days - I

2019: The Year in Stitches from Life In Pieces

Just a few more hours left in 2019, in some parts of the world it's already 2020.  I've already posted about my stitchy goals for 2020 to go along with Quilting JetGirl's Planning Party post.  But I didn't include my 2019 accomplishments in that post.  So before the calendar turns over to 2020, here's a summary of this year's accomplishments. 


1.  Quilt Plan Progress.  The plan included 12 quilts to be finished and six new projects to be started.  


Four quilts from the plan were finished:  Inverted Star, 2018 Christmas Mystery, Christmas Angels and ...

scrap bag 2 from Making A Lather

Last week, I worked on cutting a bag of scraps that I had found, I planned to make a crown of thorns - wedding ring quilt. I chose this pattern because it took a large quantity of matching pieces. When I work with scraps, most of the pieces are too small for matching. I have them all cut in groups of 4 squares and 12 hsts. I haven't cut the neutrals, yet.


The best part, was discovering there was enough of the piece to cut the smaller 2 inch hsts too. I didn't plan to use them in this ...

A Holly Christmas 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

New blocks, new project file … especially for Christmas!

Holly is something which has not been introduced to many plantings of any sort in Australia, so most of us rely on artificial varieties as part of our Christmas decorations.

It must be Christmas already.

I feel like a kid with a new toy … really a virtual quilter with a new set of blocks to play with, and expand into a bigger collection than it already is!

It is unlikely I will need to make another Christmas quilt in the near future, but if, or when, I do I will have lots ...

scrap bag from Making A Lather

Sometimes, after cataract surgery, the eye will still make a film at the back of the new lens. I am one of those. I had the first cataract surgery last fall, and another in January. By now, my eyes had healed well enough, that, I could have a lazer treatment of the membrane behind the lens. I did one last week and one yesterday. There is nothing to it except the fear of the unknown. It was quick and painless, but the eye is dilated for most of the day and that is funky.

One of my favorite purchases at ...
