Birds and Scraps from Quilts....etc.

More work was done on the scraps although the boxes don’t look like much more was added even though there was.  I went through the pile and took out all the strings and all the pieces that were too small to be cut by these dies – those little pieces were piled up here to […]

Finally we had a very nice sunny warm day and I got my garden gloves on and worked in the garden in the morning turning over soil and getting it ready to plant.  I have a little growing already – these are the chives that I planted last year, the flowers are about ready to […]

Hertfordshire Quilt from Quilts....etc.

I decided to get the Hertfordshire quilt back out to mess up my table – and it was pretty full and I really didn’t even get half done that I had planned to do as I had a doctor appointment scheduled for early afternoon – I didn’t know I would be able to get in […]

My Table Is Clean from Quilts....etc.

I think it is time to get this table full of something again – I got the binding machine stitched to the child quilt “Critters” and then cleaned the table off.   It doesn’t usually stay this empty for long. I had enough yellow fabric left to do the binding with it so I will spend […]

English Paper Piecing and Hand Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Brimfield Awakening from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday it was still quite a chilly day although it didn’t snow thank goodness! Most of the plants survived just fine – I think the edges of the blue hydrangea my have been bitten by the frost and might loose some leaves but over all it will be ok.  The tulips even started to look […]

Quilting and Plants from Quilts....etc.

Where there is a will there is a way – you just have to figure out what you have to cover plants and go for it – it might like pretty tacky and not pretty – but there you go.  The drop cloths for painting came out – a tarp that was partially ripped, you […]

Pressing Fabrics from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday I was pressing fabric and then pressing more fabric – it seems to never get done!  I had batting cut that needed to be fused together to make a big enough piece for the child size quilt that I am donating to charity.  So I got that done and then pressed the yellow backing.  […]

A Cold Chilly Day from Quilts....etc.

April sure is coming in chilly – a high of 49 yesterday by 7 PM and most the day it was actually cooler than that – although it did warm up overnight – it won’t last though there is a chance of frost 2 nights, but the day times won’t be too bad.  So other […]

I spend about an hour or so most evenings quilting – a habit of mine, after supper dishes are cleared up and the kitchen cleaned for the final time in the day I come back in the sewing room, write up a blog post and then sit at the frame with some Netflix or Amazon […]

Tic Tac Toe from Quilts....etc.
