Borders and Fillers
Do you ever have a project that starts out as one thing but ends up as another? That’s what’s happened with my latest knitting project.
What I didn’t bank on, since I had no idea how much yardage this would take, would be that I would run out of the particular kind I was using (Rowan) just before the finish.

I've jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon. There are so many inspiring images in cyberspace, I've decided to collect a few. One positive feature of Pinterest is the picture's source always stays with the picture - you can easily visit the original post and view the original context.
I've set up four boards. I only have one follower so I would be pleased to gather a few more.
There is no new Chester Criswell Quilt pattern next month but there is still plenty of activity around the CCCQ ... read more
We are over halfway through the year!
This is a good enough reason to have a contest right?
This contest is just for fun and there are not too many formal rules; just enjoy yourselves!
Lets make some boards on Pinterest of one of these 3 subjects:
Build an Outfit around a Lilac Lane Pattern
A Perfect Summers Day built around at least one Lilac Lane Pattern (can include other patterns)
Fun Fabric Choices to use with a (or 2 or 3) Lilac Lane Pattern (must pin the pattern as well)
This is an example of a board I made ... read more

Gestern hatte ich etwas Zeit und Muße, an meinem Blogdesign rumzubasteln.
Wie ihr sehen könnt, habe ich mein Layout ein ganz kleines bisschen um das Blog-Logo herum verändert. Das war mal nötig, nachdem ich schon so ein schönes Logo von meinem Freund Tobi für meine Website www.quiltmanufaktur.de gestaltet bekam :-) Er hatte auch die Idee mit dem vorherigen Blog-Logo in Form eines Etiketts - jetzt war es aber an der Zeit, beide Seiten irgendwie aneinander anzupassen!

But today, there's a very cold wind blowing. It's sunny though so that helps! I want to get back out in the yard and clean up some more but that wind is a bit cold for me.
I took Lucy to the vet this morning and her weight is holding at 7 pounds 2 ounces. The special kidney diet is working. She's sleeping now but she's been more talkative these past few weeks. I ordered a special vitamin supplement for her for kidney health. Our vet said it can't hurt so I'll start giving ...
Since I'm working on a project that I can't share at the moment, I thought I'd offer a suggestion for anyone who struggles with choosing color palettes and color combinations. Whether you're a crazy quilter or a sane quilter, you might find this helpful!
Ya'll know I love Pinterest! Yes, it's a time consumer so I try to put a limit on how long I spend there but it does have it's benefits!
I've put together a board for Color Palettes:
I don’t know about you, but some of my best “a-ha” moments come in the middle of the night. I’ve heard of those that keep a notebook by their bed so that when these flashes of brilliance come to them, they can quickly write them down. Great idea, but that would also mean that I have to turn on a light to see what I’m writing. And I don’t think that would make Mr. SFV very happy. So instead, I just try to remember come morning, and then I write it down.
The other day I ...read more
