Cotton Quilters' Sewing Room Tour from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

A quick collage of some quilts, tops and blocks, plus
one pic from the visit to my studio.
It would be difficult to have a better sewing day! That's because today we (the Cotton Quilters) toured five sewing spaces. The tour was a huge success! We all had fun. Twenty-two of us showed up and took off for Evergreen, on time. First, my studio which impressed. Rich told me to hand everyone a dust cloth as they walked in, but I served coffee instead.

One piece of furniture at Cleo's that
might go on Rich's project list ...

Pin It Weekly #264 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

How is your pinning going? Apparently I've got lots of pin-friends. New followers welcome! Here are a few pins from my week. Pinterest is a good time filler when sitting in a doctor's office or standing in line.

These are watercolor sketches I painted of some desert cacti. I tried to use different shades of greens as well as bright pops of color. I have a plant stand in my kitchen with different succulents and cacti growing. I used them as my subject matter for this painting. <br/> <br/> cacti, cactus, succulent, succulents, desert, cactus painting, watercolor, watercolor painting, purple flower, orange flower, bright, modern, fun, pops of color, green, plants, plant love, cactus love, cacti love...

Pin It Weekly #263 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Sometimes I am truly in awe over what my baby (my beautiful machine) and I can create! #sewing #longarmsewing #quilting #quiltsofinstagram Now accepting orders!! DM me!Do you have a Pin Twin? Apparently after you've played on Pinterest long enough, their artificial intelligence finds other pinners who have similar interests and sends an email introducing you. I don't know if the other pinner gets an email singing your praises, but I do know that it gets me. Every. Time.

Dragonfly Party , love the design and the quilting. simple yet makes the design P O P!
How can I not be curious? Wouldn't you want to know who in the world shares many of your interests? Calling those pinners my "twin" works especially well. I've always wondered what it must be like to have a twin. Meet ...

Pin It Weekly #262 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Quilt of jars, urns, jugs , vases. Incredibly beautiful. The colours!
I hope you had a wonderful, joyous Christmas! Here the family, gift-giving, games, food--all of it!--was a blessing. We were able to gather all of the immediate family, children, grandchildren,great-grands, and Richard's parents, to the fold. We're getting to be quite a large number, so the house was full. Everyone pitched in and we managed a family event without even a slight hiccup. 

The #DMLQAL is coming to an end...⠀ ⠀ Over the course of this quilt-along I have shared lots of general tips and tricks I use to make my…
Of course, with all the cooking and cleaning and planning plus a wedding in the days before Santa arrived, I did ...

Life's little things from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Do you have those days when it seems that you haven't accomplished much, but a look back makes a few small discoveries?

I've had weeks of those kinds of days. I really felt that I had not accomplished anything of worth lately. Then I drove Richard's mom to a wake. As we were talking, I mentioned my feelings of wasted time, and she began a list my recent doings.

She and my father-in-law belong at the top of the list. I don't do enough for them, but I do try to help. They truly enjoy ...

Name tag and Studio Pics from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I made a quick name tag to wear at our monthly guild meetings. I've escaped having to do that for several years because I was rarely able to attend. 

Now that I can attend every month and am president, I need to set a good example. Am I right? Besides there's a $1 fine every time I show up without a name tag. That was also okay but, let's face it, the fines will begin to add up now.

I've joined several sewing/quilting groups on Facebook recently. One of them is all about craft rooms ...

Storage in the Studio {scour and scrub} from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I've wanted to do a little cleaning in the studio for a while now. The problems of stuff piled and stacked in every inch of real estate overwhelms me. Additionally, there are things that simply do not belong in the studio. Period.

The new cabinet the middle part
with drawers is what we started with.

I started working on the problems a few weeks ago when I asked Richard to help me. Now, Richard is one of those people who is patient and loving and truly wants to help. Now. Right NOW.

After painting, there's lots of storage ...

Personal Belongings Post 12 :: Write 31 Days from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

This idea of sharing your personal things may seem strange at first but can make for an interesting post. Followers, and people in general, are curious and most of us like human contact. I may not be able to visit you personally, but as I get to know you via internet, I am more and more likely to want to more. Sharing your personal things is a way of sharing your life.

Keeping in mind that TMI (too much information) is real, let's consider what you might share and why.
