Seeing Purple...and Orange

Posted by Sandra Paananen on April 28, 2016 at 1:18pm 2 Comments

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’.

This past Saturday our quilting group (now named The Charm Pack) got together for our monthly Quilt ‘til you Wilt at our meeting room at the local university satellite campus.

Last word on those darn turtles

Posted by Sandy Larkey on April 20, 2016 at 7:24am 4 Comments

Finally got that paper-pieced turtle quilt set off to my sister in law.  She loved it, thought it was so cute.  I really wish I could post a photo, I've tried everything I can think of.  My Vivitar digital camera software just isn't going to cooperate.  Anyway, if any of you have gone to Java House quilts and seen the original pattern, you'll have a pretty good idea what it looks like.  Only real difference is the fact that I used a whole strip of a cute cartoon turtle print for the outer…

Birthday gift...

My granddaughter is turning 5 in a few weeks, and has always had a thing for mermaids.  I have a feeling she will love snuggling down into this mermaid bag with one of her dolls.…
