High Fiber—Feeling Grateful

Posted by Peggy Stuart on November 23, 2015 at 8:30am 11 Comments

For Joanie’s birthday present, I promised to sew together the paper-pieced pine tree blocks Julie, Janet and I helped her make.

They had been sitting in her craft room. Joanie has had a difficult year, health wise, and hadn’t been able to sew them together. She wants to embroider wild grasses over…

These are Fun -- and Addictive, Like Peanuts!

Posted by Carol Ann Hinton on November 21, 2015 at 8:40pm 11 Comments

Star Wars quilt is off to the long-arm quilter; now I'm back to doing those Itty Bitty Quilts, and am finding they are quite addictive. I can't do just one! October is over, November is up now, and I have finished December.  I have the perfect place in the entry to show off the little (6-1/2") quilts, so I just keep on making them!  They take about 2 hours each, so it's not a big commitment.  No compensation by CT here.…


From Thread Painting to Painting!

Posted by Terri D. on November 19, 2015 at 5:00pm 8 Comments

My creative spurt seems to be growing. While trying to think of where I want to go with the needle felted/thread painting project, I have created a few paintings and have been working on a thread painting. The two paintings are in acrylics and are of a sea turtle and a winter scene called garden gate. The thread painting I've entitled Spirit Wolf and has really been a challenge to work on, albeit a very enjoyable challenge.

May your creative juices flow and many enjoyable hours pass…

No Such Thing as an Ugly Quilt . . .

Posted by Carol Ann Hinton on November 18, 2015 at 1:04pm 12 Comments

Well, I'm not so sure about this one!  It is the latest Star Wars fabric, fresh from the latest movie which is not even in theaters yet, and DS will be thrilled to get it for his birthday.  What you see below is just the top.  I'm putting a red plaid flannel (remember his arctic world is white, gray and black at this time of the year) on the back, and the binding is black.  I think the whole thing looks a little chaotic, but the printed Star Wars fabric is a little chaotic.   I call the…


I got inspired!

Posted by Roxann on November 17, 2015 at 10:58am 21 Comments

For a while now I have been wanting to make a whole cloth....something.  I knew I didn't have the time nor do I have the talent yet to make a quilt so I'm starting small.  After the border I just finished I was inspired to make this little beauty to go on my coffee table.  I did start out thinking I would make placemats but I made one and got discouraged beause I didn't like it.  So today was a better day.  I will spend the rest of the afternoon making coasters with feathers to match, which…
