Saturday's Song

Here is the link to a video with the lyrics.

“Burn the Ships” by For King and Country touches my heart and aroused my curiosity as to the origin on the title.  The story behind the song is hereand is an encouragement to those who long to release the shame and guilt of their addictions.  Though “addictions” may lead one to think of drugs and alcohol, let us remember we all have addictions of one kind or another. 

However, we also have hope in Christ Jesus as Paul shares in Philippians 3:13-14.  The “it” Paul ...

GETTING SOME PRACTICE IN THIS WEEK from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

  
Hello Quilters!  I just read Barb's blog (Bejeweledquilts by Barb) and have not gotten nearly as many quilting projects done this past week as she has, but I did manage to practice my ruler quilting and free motion quilting.  Recently, while at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, I picked up the Fiddle Dee Dee charm pack by Moda.  I love the fabric.  Then I got the book Third Time's A Charm by That Patchwork Place and decided to make the pattern Ursula.  I love how it went together, but couldn't make up my mind how to quilt ...

Fall Table Topper and Recipe from Pieced Brain


I finished this table topper about SEVEN years ago and totally forgot about it! It is now quilted (thanks to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting), bound, and living on my dining room table. I love its colors and, best of all, the applique'!

The flowers on the main fabric are colorful and fun so I copied them and turned them into the applique' motifs. Look closely: I machine applique' everything with the blanket stitch using matching thread colors (Aurifil 40 wt). I stitched the ric-rac down using a straight stitch, following its wavy shape so that ric-rac is going nowhere ...

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving from Clever Chameleon

Happy Thanksgiving table top quilt with turkey at Clever Chameleon

Wishing all my Canadian friends a wonderful holiday for the coming weekend

Australians as a whole don’t do Thanksgiving, although many traditional churches do have a low-key harvest thanksgiving service in our late summer or early autumn. But I like thankfulness, and since it’s likely impossible to indulge in too much thankfulness, the Chameleon and I are getting on the Canadian bandwagon today. Happy Thanksgiving for the weekend and Monday, Canadian friends and everyone!

It wasn’t until last year that I became aware that Canada has its own Thanksgiving Day, separate from the American occasion. And then ...

Talking Turkey: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

October’s Island Batik Challenge is “Top It Off”

Top it off button for October's Island Batik challenge

My challenge as an Island Batik Ambassador in October is to: create a holiday runner or table topper, any size; must include appliqué. But don’t you think that’s a bit too easy for the Chameleon? He’s a challenge veteran by now!

So, let’s make it a proper challenge then. Purely self-imposed. Hmmm…… How about also: use the Accuquilt Cleopatra’s Fan die supplied in the July ambassador supplies box; make it juvenile; and choose a culturally irrelevant holiday. That should Top it right Off!

Hahaha. Sure! Luckily ...
