I’m teaching classes for VQF@Home! from Quilting with Kimberly

I’m very excited to share that I’ll be teaching at VQF@HOME — the virtual Vermont Quilt Festival for 2021!

Since we can’t be together in person this year, I was asked to teach four classes for the Vermont Quilt Festival online — and I’m excited to share these special classes with you! Although I’d much rather be together in Vermont in June, meeting via ZOOM does have it’s advantages. So why not choose to look on the bright side with me and sign up for one, two, or all of my workshops (plus a lecture ...

Kitchen renovation from Quilting and More...

It’s been a while, and I promise I’m still working on my current quilt. However, something else “popped up” that had to be done. Thirteen years ago, we’d had granite countertops installed in our kitchen. Unfortunately, the people who installed it did a terrible job, and the piece that went along the front of the […]

Moving right along—transitions; life and studio from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

There are many reasons why I only had 3 blog posts last year. I posted a few times on Instagram, but not much more than here. 

Even without the pandemic, life took some crazy turns for us in 2020. Hubs and I made decisions regarding our future, and I had to make some decisions regarding my work life. 

Due to work life, school took a back seat. I dropped the classes I had enrolled in that would have started mid-January 2020; the workload ramped up that same week. Over a year later, I’m working from home 11-12 hours per ...

Slow Stitching over Easter from Romany Quilting

I have to admit that I’ve been rather slow working on this project, “All Through the Night” by Bonnie Sullivan.  The first three blocks are completed – however I’ve worked on several more of these blocks when I had the correct coloured thread on the needle.  And I’ve also got a couple of other stitchery projects started, just can’t seem to help myself!

Three blocks done

We decided to stay home for Easter this year instead of heading away in our caravan, I’m getting over my recent procedure and Robin has an appointment straight after Easter ...

Never say never … from Quilting and More...

I’ve been known to tell people that I never win anything. That’s not quite true, of course, as I’ve won a few things over the years, including a nice gift certificate to my local quilt shop recently. However, about a week ago I began to get shipping notices from Williams-Sonoma — notices for four different […]

Special Deliveries from Romany Quilting

Its been a busy old day today with deliveries.  First was some more  “happy mail”, all the way from Germany.  Postmarked 8th December, it's now early March so it was a long time coming.  Christmas wishes from Judy, and she had enclosed a cute little Christmas Stocking, with the hope that we will find a place in the caravan to hang it over Christmas.  I’ll sure we will, thanks so much Judy.

Merry Christmas wishes from Germany

Our other delivery was a new fridge.  While we were away on our three week trip, our fridge died and we ...

Back up to speed. from Quilting with Kimberly

It’s been a quiet on my end lately. We’ve been flying under the radar for the past several weeks. Because honestly, 2021 was not the “fresh start” we were hoping for to move beyond 2020. 

The week after Christmas and the weekend following New Year’s found my husband, son and I working hard to complete the renovations at our cabin which had dragged on since last July. We spent days working long hours putting in sweat equity to finish the job, followed by building a myriad of shelves so we could move everything back into the storage ...

Stories in Stitches - A New Begining from The Root Connection

 

 


I was quite certain to be able to offer workshops in the month of January but it took us few weeks to get our footings back in the home. I have spent last three weeks unpacking, arranging and rearranging our belongings. I am sure it is not the end of it all but excited that we have managed to make some progress towards normalcy of life. 

Here is a little peek at my sewing space. There is a lot to organize. I can not wait to get my hands on my stash!


 

Guess what? All the plant babies survived the ...

Present from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

 As in:

  • Here and accounted for; 
  • Being in the moment; 
  • A gift.

“Present” will be my word for 2021.


I’m not much for doing the latest thing and it seems the “word of the year” may have become passé or swallowed up in COVID posts. But this word popped in my head this morning along with the above definitions, and I thought, “Why not?”

Because I wasn’t present for the bulk of 2020.

A lot of that is due to the pandemic, but I need to take ownership of part of it due to my own struggles. I ...

Working outside in the sun shine from Romany Quilting

There is nothing nicer that spending an hour or so outside on the patio in the sunshine.  So what was I working on?  Another pair of socks, and a mystery bag, which Gemma found so interesting.  And no, she shouldn't really be up on the table, but cats do what they want, don't they.

P1010524

Mmmm, wonder what’s in this bag?

It didn’t take too long to finish the toe shaping on my second sock, and get it stitched up.  These are nice warm woolen socks, knitted with 12 ply wool, knitted on two needles with a ...
