Looking Through The Stash Store from Quilts....etc.

Yes I have my own fabric store right here at home.  The good thing about having a stash of any size is that you can look through your shelves and containers first before you look on line and order something (no fabric store near me).   I decided to start looking for the right beige fabric […]

Wool Applique Eggs from Quilts....etc.

I’m not really sure why I ever got this pattern of wool eggs last year – something about it called out to me.  I am not an expert at embroidery though by a long shot and sometimes I think I should just stick to quilting – but I like to try my hand at other […]

More Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Considering I was gone for half the day with a trip to Little Rock for my quarterly check up it is not surprising I didn’t get much if any sewing done.  While in Little Rock we went out for lunch of course and then over to Sam’s before we headed home.  Mike was going to […]

Handful of Scraps from Quilts....etc.

I am seriously thinking of not making Handful of Scraps any larger – I am working on the 2nd of 3 rows on this area as you can see and then all the sides will be the same – I’m really not sure if I will go larger – right now it will measure 57 […]

Quilting, Crochet and Wool from Quilts....etc.

It felt good to get back to the hand quilting on Murrieta Stars but I didn’t push it and stuck with one hour only and made good progress – quilting a grid goes fast for me.  This is a good beginning on the second half of the quilt. I picked out pieces of wool for […]

Ready to Get Back to Quilting from Quilts....etc.

I think my fingers have rested enough and so it will be back to quilting on Murrieta Stars.  The finger tips were not real bad off and the 3 or 4 days that I took off helped them – I also wore white gloves with thickly coated fingers in Vaseline over night for several of […]

Painting and Wool Applique from Quilts....etc.

I really haven’t touched the hand quilting since Sunday night – I don’t know how long I will be able to control myself but I have gotten one more part of the egg done – two sides or two eggs?  I think I will probably go with 3 sides of little things like French knots […]

Stitching on the Wool Eggs from Quilts....etc.

One side down and I still have not decided if I will have all four sides decorated or just one – I think I will do all four first and then experiment with it.  I didn’t actually use a buttonhole stitch with this – I just started to stitch and this is what I came […]

Wool Applique Eggs from Quilts....etc.

Finally I got back to my wool applique eggs – trying to get at least one done for Xmas – either to hang on the tree or to eventually have enough to fill up a bowl for a decoration.  Each egg has four sides, you can either make them all the same or change them […]

Murrieta Stars from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was another day out of the house – in my mind I’m not getting much done in the sewing room but all of you seem to think I get a lot done.  While it is so pretty outside I have been concentrating on getting my garden winter ready and the yard cleaned up.  So […]

A Little Wool Work from Quilts....etc.

Saturday’s work outside really did me in and woke up so stiff on Sunday – I really shouldn’t have been surprised – it is just that I really felt ok on Saturday and didn’t feel like I was over doing it.  I think Sunday was half way over before I started to feel better and […]

Pretty Wool from Quilts....etc.

I got my wool box out at the end of yesterday to look and see what I had for the egg decorations to make – and they are so pretty – there are so many bright colors available  – yesterday though was all about the yard – I have been so busy cleaning up the […]
