I do have a guardian angel! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


You know how we always complain about the bad things that happen to us. But we don't celebrate when good things happen.  Something extremely exciting happened to me yesterday. I'll tell you about it in a wee bit.

After my morning chores were completed, I was back at work. I made the labels and got them stitched to the quilts and I finished stitching the hanging sleeve. The quilts went up on the wall for a quick photo and then I was in the car. It was 9:55. Five minutes ahead of schedule!

I had three stops ...

New Pattern—A Cottage Christmas Stocking from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Christmas will be here before we know it! The stores everywhere (on this continent and across the pond) are laden with all sorts of holiday items.  We thought we'd join them with a new pattern that you can make to grace your Christmas fireplace mantel.  

Introducing our Cottage Christmas Stocking!



This stocking pattern came about as I (Kara) found out that my guild, the Black Forest Quilt Guild, has a yearly stocking exchange. The Christmas style here in Germany tends to be a little bit more subdued, so I decided to make a stocking out of wool and in ...

Stash report April 2, 2018 from Making A Lather

Instead of the Easter Bunny, we were visited by the snow fairy. It is so beautiful. Especially, since it will not last. Spring will have it's day.
We have had a little time with our two Granddaughters.Which has left me with little time to sew. But, I don't mind.



It is time to reassess goals for the coming month for One monthly Goal. Typically, I lose time in April. There is so much going on around here, birthdays and gardening plans and the need to Spring clean. So I don't want to make goals that are ...

Snow and Slow to Lancaster 2018 We Go! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

 

I’m still looking for February; and searching high and low for March!

I spent the better portion of last week at the AQS Lancaster Quiltweek.  My trip began with a lovely spring blizzard which kindly dropped 12″ of snow on surrounding roads.  Moreover,  it’s timing couldn’t have been better…not.   Those beautiful, white, flakes began falling from the sky above on the day I was scheduled to leave.  But I pulled my big girl snow pants up, as high as they would go, and prayed that my 4 wheel drive SUV was up to challenge of  transporting ...

Transparency Studies from All Things Quilty

The Doodlewash watercolor prompt for today is "Transparent."  That was a great topic for me, as I have struggled with portraying clear glass.  I purchased a poster called "Painting the Illusion of Glass Vessels"  from Robert Burridge studios,  and spent the afternoon trying to follow his suggestions.



Transparency studies, Robert Burridge lessons
                                    
I was not wild about any of these studies, but one of my favorites was the martini glass.

 Here is a clear vase of bright flowers.

 And a clear glass of something clear.

Bible Art Journaling from All Things Quilty

 Here are two new journal pages in my interleaved Bible.  The pages with the dove may be my new favorite.  We surely need more messages of peace in this world.

2 Thessalonians 3:16



The current series at my church is on "finding your cave" and communicating with God...and listening for his answer.

1 Kings 19:13

Our pastor says that the sound of God's presence at the cave was like the sound of snow falling.  

We can relate this morning!  Five inches of March snow so far.  I was supposed to head out at 8:15 to ...

A Perfect Sew Day Ahead! from Val's Quilting Studio

We kinda thought old man Winter forgot about us this year as we've only had one snow before today.
And quite honestly, we have been absolutely okay with that after our "Snowmagddon" last year.
Yet, as I sat and face-timed with my grand guys and daughter this morning and watched it begin to snow...that exhilaration that snow brings started to rev up its little motor.

All's I  could think of was: "Lucky me", I get to relax and spent the better part of my day right here, busily sewing to complete my February OMG...knowing I, of ...

Crazy Weekend! from Mama Spark's World

This was the first weekend in a LONG time that we didn't have some commitment.   It was HEAVEN! Unfortunately, we got totally DUMPED on with snow!   This is my deck.  My hubby had some bins out on the deck and you can see how much snow we actually got.   It was over 12"! The pile after blowing the driveway! Our front yard. Hubby was continually shoveling or snow

Bodybuilding.

In the aftermath of Christmas and New Year's, when I'd almost recovered from all of the activities and was ready to fall back into my usual quiet routine.  I had plans and energy still going, and was ready for a new direction...but then I fell victim to the same thing other family members have had.  Unlike Amelia and Fee, I didn't feel terrible (so grateful), but fatigue, inability to concentrate, headache.  Sleeping.  A lot.  Thank Goodness, it wasn't the flu.  This has been a terrible year for the flu--really epidemic proportions.  

On Tuesday, we actually ...

Five? from From the Strawberry Patch...

Five? Really?? The passage of time seems to be measured in days rather than years to this Nana. How could time be passing so quickly? Yes, our youngest granddaughter is five years old. January 2013 We had a fun day shopping for clothes and accessories for her newest doll, Kit, on Monday. Our trips together to the American Girl store have become a birthday tradition. My dad calls it

Winter 2018 from I Have A Notion

The middle of January has come and gone!!! I would say I have no idea of where the time went since the New Year Year dawned... but I do. Most of it has been winter!!! Lots of it. We went in the deep freeze in December and haven't really seen any relief since. This has been like Chicago COLD!!!  negative temperatures with biting wind chills, and we have snow to go with it. There are a couple of

Behold: A Southern Blizzard! "Snowed In" With the Best Beginner Longarm Quilting Tutorials from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Okay, Wisconsin and Minnesnowta readers -- get ready to laugh yourselves silly.  School is canceled today in Charlotte, North Carolina -- in the middle of exam week -- because of treacherous weather conditions that they are calling Storm Three:


Storm Three Pounds My Neighborhood with a Sprinkling of Snow Dandruff
Not only is school closed today, but businesses are closing as well.  My in-box is full of emails from the eye doctor, interior design showrooms, etc., notifying me that they are all closed due to the "storm."  All of my appointments today have been canceled, even tonight's church choir rehearsal, and I ...

2017 Review and Highlights from Butterfly Threads



Before we get too far into the new year let's review the 'goals' I set for 2017 and see how I did...

1. READ more books.

SUCCESS! I read (and listened to) more books this year than I ever have.

2. NAP. 


I managed a few but not nearly as many as I had hoped for. Life happened instead.

3. RIDE MY BIKE 

Again, I enjoyed my bike during the summer, but never found enough time when the weather wanted to cooperate. I'm going to try harder this year.

4. FAMILY AND FRIENDS will get priority on my ...

Snow Much Fun from Butterfly Threads


We enjoyed quite the winter snow storm here last week! While we normally get a light dusting of snow once or twice a year, it usually melts within 24 hours. This time we got a whopping 9'' of snow that lasted several days!!


Don't laugh, it was a big deal around here. The kids had a great time playing in the snow. It started snowing around noon on Friday and my hubby had this waiting for me in the front yard by the time I got home from work about 2:30 pm.


The flakes were big and fat ...
