Can do with a little less excitement! ;-)

Guess my darling hubby and I must be getting too big for our britches and needed a wakeup as to what is important in life. LOL. Last Friday we went to the gym and met with our individual personal trainers for the second week of our "going to get healthy, do it right, or bust" mantra for the new year. Now keep in mind that we have been going to the gym off and on for the past two years we've been here in Florida and all without a problem. Ray has gone more than I have due to my spinal surgery…

embroidery

Posted by Kathleen Kingsbury on April 22, 2015 at 10:17am 8 Comments

Everyone was so nice with my request for advice here. So I thought I'd share what I just finished with an embroidery project. I haven't embroidered in years. This is a gift for my best girlfriend; she gave me the dish as a Christmas gift one year and it inspired my idea to do some embroidery. I'm quite happy with it. I padded the embroidery with a bit of batting, so I couldn't fit the glass back in the frame, but it still looks nice.…

Another UFO

Posted by Janet/MO on April 21, 2015 at 2:00pm 17 Comments

I am a co-owner of the Piece Around the World group.  Last year 7 of us participated in our 1st row robin.  I choose a beach theme and am just tickled pink with the rows that everyone made for me.  I finished adding the borders to it this morning & here is a pic of it.  I hope to have it quilted, bound & labeled before the end of summer.…

looking for advice

Posted by Kathleen Kingsbury on April 21, 2015 at 12:27pm 9 Comments

So I need some advice. I made a quilt back, but I like it too much to be a backing for that particular quilt! I want it to be a front. So I have it laid out (a little sloppily, sorry) with a piece of fabric I'm thinking of using as a backing.  I know backings don't necessarily have to match the front, but do you think this looks good at all? It's CT fabric, called Soaked.  The patchwork is done in CT's Urban Odyssey, which goes back to 2012 at least. I hope this is a good enough picture to…

The April Sunshine Socks are finished and on my feet.





The pattern is "Sunshine" from Sock Innovation by Cookie A. Yarn Regia 4-fädig in "00017." I plan to make most of the socks from this book.



Not one to let grass grow…

Headed to Paducah

Posted by Barbara Graham on April 17, 2015 at 9:15pm 8 Comments

Tomorrow (Saturday) I begin my trek with my BFF to Paducah for the show. It promises to have a few endless days on the bus followed by THE BIG SHOW and then a few more endless days. I 'm so excited! We will be on a bus with 35 other people who speak our language. I'll have do work on the bus (deadlines wait for nothing) but not in Paducah. And, I don't have to shop for groceries, cook, clean, etc.  I hope DH will remember to bring the plants in at night so they don't freeze.

And, if…

March April fun

Posted by Linda Christianson on April 15, 2015 at 2:02pm 8 Comments

I have been sorting precut left over pieces. My goal was to get rid of one  30 gallon container. The goal is close to being made into four super scrape quilts. Another is in the making, but I am not getting too excited yet. I did stuff a pillow case and sorted the pieces while on trip back to Missouri last week. Just about now after four days of sewing have gone through the bag and trying to make the last quilt. It is so odd in colors and pieces I can see why I have UFO of started scrapes…
