Shopping with Your Smartphone from Jo's Country Junction


Every month I team up with U.S. Cellular and share a little about my Samsung Galaxy S8 Smart Phone. This is one of those posts.

Lucky for me most of my Christmas shopping is done and most of it is already wrapped.  I always have a thing or two that I need to do.  Often I forgot something or need Hubby’s help to decide on a gift but most of my shopping is done.  I, of course, have an idea to do a last minute gift but if it doesn’t happen, that’s no bid deal.  It ...

National Christmas Center from Stash Overflow

Last week I read about The National Christmas Center here. As many times as I’ve been to Lancaster County, I’d never heard of this place before. Let’s think about that for a minute. I learned about a Christmas museum a couple of hours away from where I live on a blog post written by a woman who grew up in London and lives in Paris. Yay, internet! It’s a small world, indeed.

If you live within a reasonable distance of Lancaster and love Christmas, you MUST make time to visit this museum before it CLOSES FOREVER ...

On Ringo Lake: Clue 3 from Stash Overflow

Clue 3 came out last Friday. I didn’t start working on it until Saturday because I was working on En Provence. Yes, I know that’s last year’s mystery.  I spent all weekend cutting the pieces for clue 3.

For the coral pieces I cut rectangles. I don’t have the corner ruler Bonnie is promoting but I do have the Sharyn Craig designed Cutting Corners ruler. I set about figuring out which lines to use to cut off the right amount. A quick look through the instruction booklet didn’t reveal exactly what clue 3 required or ...

2018 Word of the Year from Terificreations's Weblog

As a word of the year Gratitude was a good one. I am grateful for the experience of 2017. Creativity is slowly returning. The Quilted Block of the Month Started (with big plans to continue in 2018). A few teaching opportunities. Learning about embroidery. Having a spouse who loves me deeply. One of the considerations … Continue reading 2018 Word of the Year

It is time for the traditional stocking to be constructed for the youngest grandson to join the family.


Here are additional posts about previous stockings so you can see how they develop:  HERE, HERE and HERE.

So many fun details.  This little dog was designed to look (something) like his favorite stuffed animal.


And his birthday is July 5.

It will go in the mail very soon to be there in time for stuffing.

A Trip to the Pharmacy from Jo's Country Junction


A post from Kelli–

All the time growing up, I always felt kind of nervous.  Things that were just normal things that would happen would send me into a tailspin.  Here’s an example–Taking my car into the shop to get fixed, even if it was something small or normal would just freak me out.  I would convice myself that something was going to happen while my car was in the shop and I wouldn’t be able to go to the doctor or that I would be scheduled for a shift at work that I would have forgotten ...

Christmas Commission from Roxane Lessa Fine Textile Art


Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the new readers!

The Christmas Commission is almost done! Let me catch you up. This week I put all the finishing touches on the painting, and completed the quilting.  OH and made my very own Charlie Brown Xmas tree with branches from the woods and lights.

I do love the lights this time of year, but Teeny would eat them if I made them readily accessible on a real tree indoors. Also, woe betide any ornaments and the tree itself would probably be knocked over. She ...

Book journey {an intro} from Factotum of Arts

I thought I would start sharing my journey on writing and self-publishing a quilt book with you all. I am not sure whether this is will be a successful activity or whether it will be unsuccessful, at this point. I have always been curious about what people go through along this journey, what worked and what didn’t.



Each month, I would love to share with you how it is going, answer any questions you might etc. here on my blog (that is if I can). You can also follow progress of projects on Instagram with #ideadesigncreatequilt or via ...

Wall Quilt Basting Tutorial from Carol Lyles Shaw

Wall quilt basting is much easier on the back and knees!!

Here’s a quick tutorial on this method.  I prefer wall quilt basting because I don’t have to bend down or kneel on the floor.  And, I’ve had much better success–few or no wrinkles!

Not a Spray Baster?

If you prefer to pin baste your quilts, here’s a tutorial on how to do it on any wall–No design wall needed!

Preparing the Batting

Before I baste the quilt, I throw the batting in a medium heat dryer for a few minutes (5 minutes or ...

ORL and the Clue #3 Blues from Katy Did Art

Since Friday, there have been a series of struggles going on around here. Like I said yesterday, I was up bright and early for the release of Clue #3. But, oh no, there were a LOT of triangles that needed to be sewn onto the diamonds!! First struggle – overcome the temptation to throw my hands up and say,

I mean, seriously!?! After all those flying geese that we had to do from Clue #2!?!

Okay, I might be exaggerating a little bit, but goodness that is a lot of triangles!!

So, after work, I decided I wanted to make these ...

Greetings from On The Go Quilting

Sending holiday greetings to each and every one of you.  May LOVE fill your hearts and may JOY fill your days.

   Merry Christmas! 


I’m taking a little break, just until the end of the year.  Cataract surgery, a week apart, is making writing a blog post a challenge.   Eye #1 was last week, and while it was successful, it has changed my vision some and it doesn’t match my glasses, nor my other eye.   It makes focusing on letters a challenge!    Eye #2 will be tomorrow and then I’ll be in a ‘fog’ for a couple of ...

ORL Clue #3 and a few for me from Katy Did Art

Friday morning I was up bright and early, waiting for the clue to come out! I didn’t have to wait very long and sure enough, Bonnie had the clue ready for me! But, oh my heart sunk, when I saw the amount of half square triangles I had to sew!

So far this weekend, I have managed to make one pair of units. I haven’t even managed to get a photo of them.

But I did manage to have a wonderful afternoon with all these gals.

I’m out right now with DH so I won’t be ...
