That's a LOT of blocks from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I was off to the gym yesterday! And it was so much fun to be back! Masks are required inside, of course, but once you get to the cycling studio, you can take the mask off. Joseph is the BEST spin teacher I've ever come across. He's tough, but he's good. Even though he doesn't check, he motivates you to slog through the hard cycling. I cranked out 32 KM on the bike without a thought. OH, that's a lie - I thought about lowering the tension on the bike, but I didn't. I feel ...

Wildlife sightings from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

It was a glorious day yesterday! I accomplished a lot, saw a lot, and well - just a great day!!

Often, when I go for a walk, I take my phone. Not because of the social media, which I'm hardly on these days, and I don't miss it a single bit, not because someone might text me or call me - I rarely get messages, unless it's from M who wants to know what's happening with Little Bear. Nope - I take my phone because it has a fantastic camera on it.

I stopped to take a picture of ...

Rejuvenated and A Finish! from Val's Quilting Studio

 Sometimes a change of scenery is rejuvenating for the soul. I can't believe we've been in this Coronavirus "shutdown" for four months now. Of which have found me transforming from an efficient, organized, productive human being to a total blob who can't remember when she last showered! Accept for my daily exercise routine, I've had motivation to accomplish nothing more. Finally, weekend before last, hubby and I took a long weekend and escaped to the mountains. We were isolated in the middle of the mountains and though we didn't do much, as the town we ...

Monday Motivation: Start Now from Patchwork Sampler Blog

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Mark Twain

 

What was I thinking?

I have a sign in my sewing room that reads “You can’t start over so start now.” It is a constant reminder that I cannot go back and finish each quilt before I start another one. Now, I have loads of UFOs. These unfinished projects have literally become the elephant in my sewing room. I see bins every time I walk in the room. This year I picked ONE basket under my sewing table and will concentrate on these projects. This single laundry basket size ...

Some Old Patterns, Some New Patterns from SEW, RIP, SEW

I'm still doing donation quilts but just haven't posted any for a while.  


Two more quilts made with fruits and vegetables.
I mentioned before that fat quarters multiply in the cupboard because I still have more of these fabrics and will probably make more food quilts in the future.


I was looking for something in one of my storage towers and came across these flying geese blocks.  I don't know what I was saving them for so I sorted them because there were two different sizes and added a few more and made two quilts.
The binding ...

Bad Blogger, Bad, Bad Blogger..... from Scrap Basket

So it's been 3 months since I last posted.....sigh, where does the time get to? I'm trying to decide whether or not to continue blogging or to just give it up since I seem to be so bad doing it on any kind of regular basis.

In my last post you saw my poor Winston Ways which had some unfortunate bleeding in the wash. Well, I'm happy to report that the problem has been resolved. A HUGE thank you goes out to Vicki Welsh and her fabulous information on dealing with bleeding fabric. After a nice ...
