Time with Family from Jo's Country Junction

The 4th of July was a bit of a miserable day. My daughter Kalissa and her family were planning a 4th of July party that we intended on going to…but it rained. Rather than do nothing, we ended up at my house for lunch and family time. It did rain on and off. During the …

British Baby Quilts in Space and Time 1700-1990. from Plain Stitch

I just finished stitching a little cot quilt for a friend and colleague’s baby. It’s been a few years since I stitched for a baby and the experience had me nostalgic and reflecting. My friend is a historian of eighteenth century relationships, and so I knew straightaway that I wanted this quilt to reference Georgian… Continue reading British Baby Quilts in Space and Time 1700-1990.

The Stages of Grief from Jo's Country Junction

I’ve talked a lot about grief here on the blog. I’ve talked because it’s my goal to normalize it…and as I’ve said before, the blog is part journal for me and writing helps me deal with things. The majority of you reading this are over 50. The blog statistics tell me that. If I posed …

I didn’t get much stitching done lately. I knew June would be tough on my stitching schedule. I was right. I pulled my Miriam Dowd sampler and decided to take it with me when we went to the baseball game. I thought being it was 28 count I could easily stitch on this in the …

First Of The Season from Wedding Dress Blue

In addition to all things quilty, I enjoy a bit of gardening. We are fortunate to have a little space around our home, and we have filled the nooks and crannies with all sorts of productive plants: herbs, two apple trees, cherry tree, nectarine tree, peach tree, flowers, garden boxes, raspberries, blackberries and STRAWBERRIES!

The strawberry patch mostly died out during the severe drought experienced by much of the American West for a few years, but, after an abundant winter of snow last year, it was time to try again.

And we have berries this year. The space isn’t ...

Piece and Quilt- month 3 from Moda Lissa

We are back again with month 3 of the Piece and and Quilt Sampler project.

There are 3 different blocks this month and there is quite a bit of sewing. Don’t worry, take your time. Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings once gave me this advice and I am going to share it with you here.

– When you are working on a BOM, no matter what you do, go ahead and cut it out. This way when you have a few minutes you can sit down and sew a few pieces together. This uses different brain power than the concentration ...

What Kelli is Making: Pickle Pasta Salad from Jo's Country Junction

In an earlier blog post, I told you that Kelli had come over one day and brought pickle salad. I hadn’t had it before. Kelli said, “Oh Mom. You have to take a bite.” I did…and that led to eating a small bowl of it before lunch. It was top ten good if you like …
