High Fiber—The Quiet After the Tornado

Posted by Peggy Stuart on January 14, 2019 at 8:30am 6 Comments

It has been a rough two weeks. My "flu" turned out to be pneumonia, and then, before I was recovered, I caught a cold from DH. Each day is a little better, though, and I'm finally able to sleep at night, propped up on pillows. I've made some progress on the Nurmilintu Shawl, though.

On January 11 my dear husband lost the fight with glioblastoma cancer,

less than 5 months from when it was discovered.

He handled this battle in an amazing way.

He died peacefully in his…

How do you tell the gender of UFOs?

Posted by Pam/NY on January 13, 2019 at 7:43am 7 Comments

I thought I was down to one UFO. Much to my surprise I found a drawer with three more. There is definitely funny business going on in my sewing room. So, I need to separate the male UFOs from the females, or I'll never find the end! Have a great week!

This has been the weirdest winter so far.  Lots of snow at Thanksgiving & then barely any for the entire month of December.  Then yesterday we were really hit!  We lost power for 4 hrs last night.  Thank goodness for quilts & a fireplace!  Our lights keep dimming this morning so I sure hope we don't lost power again.   We have a lot of broken branches & it appears our neighbors do as well.  It is continuing to come down so I suspect it will be a few days before we will be able to…

My first finish of the year!

Posted by handstitcher/IL on January 6, 2019 at 1:42pm 9 Comments

I finished this baby quilt on New Year’s Day, so I’m hoping it’s a good omen for quilts to come. I purchased this vintage top at a white elephant sale last summer for $4. What a buy! It was long and skinny and needed some pep. After taking it apart and handwashing the embroidered blocks, I saw, very faintly, some background printing on block 9. Turns out that the maker used bleached flour sacks from the Great American Pacific Tea Company (otherwise know as the A & P) for her fabric. I…

Another top finished

Posted by Janet/MO on January 2, 2019 at 6:19am 9 Comments

Several years ago I bought Judy Martin's Log Cabin Quilts book with the goal of making some of the quilts in it.  One that really caught my eye was the Snake River Log Cabin so I decided I was going to make it in a king size.  Well I finally started it, but it didn't take long for reality to set in so I ended up making the wallhanging instead.  This is 53" square and has 1406 pieces in it.  The king size has over 7000!  I'm very happy with how this turned out.  …
