Greetings my friends!

Hi all -- it's been way too long since I last posted here. It's so nice to see so many 'faces' I know as I scan the posts.

Honestly, I can't remember when I last posted, so some of this may be old stuff but other will be new. I have managed to do some quilting/fiber art over the last several months, but my time is mostly filled with other things of life these days.

Last November my husband and I moved from working for the Retreat (which is no more) to full time volunteer staff…

Tribute wallhanging

Posted by Barb/WI on August 8, 2018 at 6:43am 7 Comments

This wallhanging is based on a larger one I found in a magazine.  I made this to hang in my 7 year old granddaughter's bedroom, at our house.  It is a tribute to her mom, our daughter-in-law, who just passed away much too young after her 7 year battle with metastatic breast cancer.  She truly knew how to live life in full bloom, and made making memories a priority.  We never heard her complain as she fought bravely until she had nothing left to fight with.  (Sorry, didn't plan to add the…

Another quick project

Posted by Janet/MO on August 7, 2018 at 8:03pm 7 Comments

Even though I should have been spending my time basting an older UFO, I saw this embroidery design & just couldn't resist making it.  It is the freeform tablerunner by Sweet Pea Designs.  I did the center part on my embroidery machine & then added the borders as I wanted it to be wider than the pattern is.  It only took a few hours to make.  If you click on the picture, I think it will enlarge it enough so you can see the quilting better.  That is all done using my emb machine except…

Just when I thought I had a grip on life....

Posted by Kathy/WA on July 30, 2018 at 8:53am 4 Comments

Seems like my life is always throwing me curves.  I finally got my broken arrow quilt top finished with the extra borders. Sorry I don't have a picture of it as it is now packed and going into storage.  Almost a year ago My other half injured his back at work.  He would work, couldn't work for a few months and L and I of course paid wouldn't pay for his time off.  He's been off work now sense April and we are going through the getting paid not getting paid by L and I.  So this has forced us…
