Finding my Rotary Cutter from The Cozy Quilter

 The condition of my sewing room has deteriorated over the last month or so to the point where I could not find my rotary cutter... it was time for a clean up.  I spent over an hour putting things away, folding fabric, sorting through piles, etc. and still no rotary cutter.  I tried to think of the last time I used it...then, I remembered I used it at a recent guild sewing day---it was in the bag I took to the sewing day.  Oh well, the sewing room is looking much better and I had a new project planned ...

April Showers Kind of Day from Pinkadot Quilts


I've been away a long time and don't have much to show for it. I finally got the rows of this quilt sewn together but have to get it finished. For goodness sakes its 95% done! I will not be quilting it, my friends Carolyn and Jamie will be asked to perform the magic. The patterns are by Lori Holt from Bee In My Bonnet and it was a sew along last summer. I love the blocks but was tired of them once they were done. Now I am excited to have it be a quilt.

I also ...

Monday's Strength: Song of Songs 3:2. Machine Embroidery and Scrappy News! Book Date Reads! To Do Tuesday. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

 Monday's Strength: Song of Songs 3:2

Continued study of some of the verses shared in Lynn Austin's Until We Reach Home.

In this book, Sofia and Ludwig speak different languages. All they have is their Bibles and basic drawing skills to communicate. He/she would find a passage that explains their thoughts and share that passage with the other. As their time to separate nears, Ludwig shows Sofia this verse to reassure her that he will find her.

This made me think: What if all we had to communicate with our loved one was the Bible?
In ...

Wednesday's Word. Pressing On. Wednesday's Wrap Ups. I Like....My Daughter, Bags and Pouches! from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Wednesday's Word. 
Many of us take refuge in the Lord, especially during times of trials.  Yes, how many times do we hear an internal voice whispering these or similar discouraging words to our spirit?  And how many times do these words hit their mark and drive us to despair?  
I pray that we remember that the battle is not ours, but the Lord's.  (2 Chronicles 20:15)  In times of trials, we need to take our positions, stand firm without fear or discouragement and see the deliverance the Lord will give us.  (2 Chronicles 20:17)
Oh Lord ...

DRAGGING BAGS AROUND! from Kwilty Pleasures

I have a lot of bags ready to sew.
My feet hurt from dragging them around
instead of sewing them.

I pulled the fabrics over a year ago.
I cut them out, cut and ironed on interfacing or batting.
Made drawstrings or matched zippers.

And yet..2 months later, they are NOT finished.
Maybe they will be my "Christmas in July" 
sewing projects! 

The Gnomes and Fa-la-la-la-lamas
are on the table!

Little finishes from Granny Maud's Girl

Before Christmas, I whipped up a handful of Lola zipper pouches to give away as Christmas and birthday presents.

I started with the intention of making two pouches with some sort of bird or cat print for a colleague, but while I was digging about in my stash, I decided to make a few more. I could have kept going – they always make great gifts – but I was trying to be realistic about how many I had time to make.

Lola pouches made with bird print

I even found coordinating tassels in my stash.

Until now, I had not made the smaller size in the Lola ...
