|Jingle BOM Pieced Block No. 5|
|Design Wall: 8 Applique Blocks and 6 Pieced Blocks|
I chose to quilt each row with a different background motif after I outlined all the appliqued shapes (outline done using monofilament), and decided on each motif as I came to the rows (why plan, right?...). In my haste to mail it to California, I took pictures of parts of the quilt and have no overall ... read more
We were gone on our Summer Vacation RV Road Trip for five weeks, visiting three states and British Columbia's Vancouver Island in Canada! We returned to Bend, Oregon, for a week of camping with our friends Lynn and Rick. While the boys went fishing for a few days, Lynn and I sewed outside on the patio of our site at Crown Villa RV Resort. The weather was a beautiful 80 degrees with a nice breeze! She and I also took a quilting class at the local shop, BJ's Quilt Basket.
Yesterday I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped to do. Mainly because DH wanted me to look on the internet for replacement parts for a door lock. Yuck! First of all, I have no idea what I’m looking for. Second, when I find something, I still can’t understand the gibberish that is used to describe the item. And third, I want to sew!!!!
I never did find what he wanted and I think he should just replace the whole door, instead of fixing the lock – but that’s just my opinion!
We did go ...read more
I feel bad…. OK not that bad but still i should have totally posted this info for you all months ago! As you already know my quilt guild The Crossroads Quilters Guild of Effingham IL., held their annual quilt show back in September (like i said MONTHS ago!) I did send a list of the show winners to the local newspaper but i have been told by many that the list never appeared and if it did no one has ever seen it. So here it is, the list of all the winners as well as photos of each of ...read more
Hello Friends, I hope you are well! We did experience the predicted inclement weather.
Life is a bit crazy right now with me trying to meet a bunch of deadlines before Christmas. So, it’s only natural I should show you a quilt I just shipped off last week. I can’t wait to show you this quilt in its entirety — you will see why it is named Teething Rings!!!
Meanwhile, we are still working on our Christmas preparations!
I am hoping to get to the craft store this week to pick up some supplies for the bird ornaments I ...read more
Not sure what it going on with paypal and my shopping cart system but I really appreciate your patience as you try to place orders and run into snags. So far the hang-up in the ordering process has been random, so I never know what to expect.
Some of you ...read more
I have been busy finishing up a lot of little projects – like the runner and topper I am going to share today. They were both made for our master bedroom.
We have this long white dresser that needed some color. It also needed some protection from all the things Joel likes to throw – I mean set – on the dresser. White furniture seems to mark up so easy and runners are they perfect way to protect the finish.
I have trouble photographing in our house. It always looks so much darker in the photos than it does in person. This outside ...read more
It’s just too cold for central Texas. My theory probably isn’t true . . my theories are rarely true but I’ve decided that since it’s so hot in the summer, and summers are so long, we acclimate ourselves to the heat and then we lose our ability to deal with the cold. If my theory […]read more
It has been so very cold here in Colorado. We’ve had several days where the high was only 12 or 15 degrees. That makes me want to just stay inside. We’d planned to go to our home in northeast Colorado this weekend to get some of the Christmas decorations but it was so cold that we didn’t go. So instead of showing you my Christmas quilts, I’ll show you my Mom’s. When I shared with you the photos from Mom’s quilt show, I said that I’d share more of her quilts later. So ...read more
I’ve been the crazy printing lady this weekend. Printing up a storm with Inklingo shapes for the Celtic Solstice Mystery quilt. Clue #2 was released on Friday and surprise, surprise. I’m already behind. I know you’re surprised. Not. But I’m determined to catch up soon.
Last week was crazy busy with preparing for the JSS Christmas party on Thursday. Because you know what a procrastinator I am. And true to form, I was busily stitching the blocks for our exchange the day before the party. Thank goodness I only had to make 5 of them! And ...read more
For today’s instructions, we will complete Block 1 using the components previously made. Make 12 blocks. Press the seam allowances toward the center.read more

I'll be honest, with all of the dyeing going on for the Tell It To The Stars kits, there's very little sewing happening around here. I usually dye once a week but this month it's twice a week so I'm spending a lot go quality time with my iron and washing machine. But I'm not complaining. With a good audiobook I can iron for days and what's not to love about ironing pretty colors. If you've been considering getting a kit the ofsale ends tomorrow!
Here's one big thing that I ...read more
