Do you all remember those old ladies who always said.....

In my day we wouldn't be       (fill in the blank)        ?   Well I think I have turned in to one of them.  For the life of me I can't figure out why in the world parents would allow their teenage daughters to attend a high school prom wearing a lot of the dresses you see today.  My goodness.  My dad would have grounded me for a month if I had even tried to leave the house wearing some of those dresses.  I know times have changed, but this is…

About a year ago I responded to a call for quilt patterns in recognition of Cinco De Mayo.  This is the throw I designed:

The pattern can be found in the April 2016 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine …

For All the Newbies...let's start some chatter about our best advice...

Posted by Pam/NY on April 29, 2016 at 7:43am 7 Comments

I like to interview my fabric before selecting which ones to use. I do a rough layout and switch different swatches or scraps then take a photo in the light where the finished project may be. This is a Christmas bed runner I'm in the process of deciding. I'm not happy with the first ball...the accent fabrics do not…

Seeing Purple...and Orange

No, not talking about Prince, although he's been the topic of discussion these days. Strange how people scurry out of the woodwork to capitalize when tragedy strikes...family or otherwise. 

Anyway, I have once again (somehow) subjected myself to help out (a cousin-in-law this time) with making her daughter a quilt.  I say help, but yes, I am making the entire thing start to finish.  The mom wants to surprise her for her graduation this year from Clemson U.  with this "tail gating…

I need mental help

I knew that title would grab your attention. hee hee.  But with some of the things I put up with that title might not be too far off.

Bud is back to the nursing home.  He went into the hospital with double pneumonia.  After her recovered they took him back to Marshall's in Machias for long term care.  This is his 3rd trip over there.  He is still up to his old phone calling and leaving numerous messages.  I went to a public supper Friday night and then stopped in to visit a neighbor…

We had a spin-in this past week in The Frog Prince and his Knitting Community Orphans.

Better late......

I see that my last posting was in February so obviously I haven’t been contributing as regularly as I had planned at the beginning of the year.  However, here’s a bit more ‘catching up’.
