Snail Trails from Quilts....etc.

Pink block done to join the wall to complete the month of May completing the pink blocks after deciding to not use the plaid.  The pink polka dot looks much better! One green block done and 3 more to make – this green has a bit of blue in it also and it kind of […]

Lemoyne Stars and Strawberries from Quilts....etc.

Strawberries – I think most people love them but there are probably some that don’t, my husband will only eat them as made into jam or with whip cream – I will just pop them in my mouth as I pick them – first year crop – I don’t know if you usually get more […]

Lemoyne Star & Garden from Quilts....etc.

I can tell that the last month or so I have been having to push myself to sew – I am more in a reading/garden mode right now for some reason – probably because it is nice to be on the porch and enjoying the weather after all the rain we got.  I did get […]

Hunters Star from Quilts....etc.

Due to an early short heat wave I think I might actually get some progress done this week in the sewing room.  Jumping from the high 70’s to low 90’s is a bit much for me – I am not used to the hot weather.  Garden work was done first thing in the morning when […]

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

A walk, picking strawberries, working on hexies, a nice day – what more could one ask for.  The temperature was perfect in the 70’s (changing to 90’s soon).  I met Melanie at the walking trail with her dog and we got in 4 miles at least and then I managed to get in 2 more […]

When you Lose Something from Quilts....etc.

Doesn’t it drive you crazy when you go to pick something up and use it and you can’t find it.  Yesterday was one of those days.  I couldn’t find any plant stakes to put names of plants on and stick in the ground so I had ordered some – and then lost them!  And then […]

Hunter’s Star from Quilts....etc.

I think I said I was going to start this month’s RSC quilts out with the Lemoyne Star pattern but I pulled out the Hunter’s Star instead so after the thunder quit and danger of lightening left I pulled out the Go Big and got started cutting the 4 blocks needed.  I decided on using […]

What a Busy Day from Quilts....etc.

Ok I kind of flipped what I said I would be doing yesterday – instead of just finishing the first red border all the way around on Yuletide Gatherings – I said to heck with it lets get this baby finished and in the “to be quilted” box – and I almost did –  the […]

Rain and Dentist from Quilts....etc.

I didn’t have the sewing machine plugged in most of the day and into the evening  because of rain storms with a lot of thunder and lightening in the distance so a border got pinned on to the flannel quilt  but sewing didn’t happen – today no rain I believe so I really must try […]

Hexies, Flannel and an Alligator! from Quilts....etc.

Another nice day and Melanie and I started it out with a long walk – and we saw the Bona Dea Trails alligator for the second time in 14 years!  Of course we do not know if the alligator is the only one out there or not – it might be there are more as […]

Beautiful Days from Quilts....etc.

I know when the weather gets to be the hot days of summer I will be back to my normal routine of off and on sewing in the daytime but right now while the weather is nice it is normal to be more outside.  We have been working on getting all the plants in the […]

Flannel and Flowers from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday morning I made myself cut some fabric for the borders of Yuletide Gatherings so I could at least get started on this border – this is crazy how I keep putting it off so I can be outside instead!  One border is on –(not pressed) maybe one more this morning before I get busy […]

Flannel, Hexies and Planting from Quilts....etc.

Ok lets start with the flannel even though I didn’t get around to pulling Yuletide Gatherings out until late afternoon I did make progress in the fact that I measured the top and bottom so I know how long to cut the first two pieces of the red flannel – you have to know that […]

Another Nice Day from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday I was on the go – I spent the morning with Melanie at the library I’m back to volunteering now and then and helped with a busy story time – mainly assisting with the craft time after the stories – one young mom had her hands full with a baby and a 2 year […]

Quilting and Gardening from Quilts....etc.

Progress on the Love Letters quilt is going really well – can’t believe it has been almost a month now that it has been on the frame and 34 hours in on it.  Had a bit of sunshine coming in on this one – I think this quilt might go closer to 4 months to […]

Plants and Flannel from Quilts....etc.

We had over an inch and a half of rain early yesterday morning on top of the almost 3 inches that we had about 5 days ago – needless to say it was too wet yesterday to plant anything – I would have been kneeling in water and mud and I didn’t feel like it […]

The Flannel Awaits from Quilts....etc.

I did dig through all the flannel scraps and have them on the table to start to go through today for the border of Yuletide Gatherings but I didn’t get started on it because we were outside for a good deal of the day.  It is just too nice sometimes for days in a row […]

It Was Earth Day from Quilts....etc.

Did you spend time outside yesterday planting anything or playing in nature?   We had a gorgeous day and I spent time with my new flower beds filling them in with dirt and trimming some other plants around the yard.  I did get a little sewing done but just a little. The flannel quilt – Yuletide […]

Pickle Dish from Quilts....etc.

I am ready to start the Pickle Dish blocks today if I have time.  I have a few things to do before I get to sew today – After I spent time cutting – this block takes longer because of how many pieces are in each block I got one block laid out and ready […]

Progress on Several Quilts from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday morning we had driven out to my brother’s farm about 25 miles from us to pick up some beef and had a good tour of new things on the farm – 3 greenhouses now – he was busy tilling some of the vegetable rows when we got there in the long garden rows on […]
