Small project leads to bigger one

Posted by Irene Gallway on June 25, 2016 at 11:29am 7 Comments

Yesterday I set out to cut scraps into different size squares, depending on the size of the scrap.  I hauled out my box of scraps and started sorting them in colors stacking them on my "double" bed. I had so many scraps that I ran out of space on the bed so decided to go to WM and buy another stack of those plastic drawers. I got two stacks (6) draws. Then the task was to make room in my sewing room closet for this extra set of drawers.  This was no small task hauling everything out of the…

We are half way to Christmas!
Better get those machines humming!

Machine Attachment

Posted by Pam/NY on June 22, 2016 at 5:09pm 7 Comments

Hubby and I went to pick up my machine from the Viking store. The gal that works there is a real sweetheart and enjoys her job. She was treating the machine like it was my baby. When we left the store, hubby was laughing at her calling it my kid. I actually felt like something was missing in the house for two weeks!

So, I went down and hid one of his bows for hunting. We were having dinner and he asked if I'd been downstairs. Why????

I just think something is missing but can't figure… Continue

mini rant

Don't you just hate it when you KNOW right where you put something, but when you go to retrieve it, it isn't there?      

About a year ago, we had a large amount of hard rain in a short amount of time, which caused flash flooding.  While our house sat above the floodwaters, we had seepage in the basement.  This, in turn, resulted in major cleaning, purging, reorganizing, etc.  You would think that would be a good thing, right?  Except for one thing...

I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING!…

Just let it go....

Hi everyone! It's been while since I've posted. Life always seems to throw something at me. 

I've been busy quilting for customers and when I'm not doing that we have been working in the yard. The weather has been so crazy, it was cool for so long and then summer can in at full force and it's HOT! 

DH and I are going to a wedding this afternoon, one of the guys he works with. I have known about this wedding since December, and had plenty of time to prepare but for some reason I…

The Clemson U quilt

These colors just don't photograph well, it is purple and orange and boy, am I sick of this color combination.  

Been away on vacation visiting my son so had to put this on hold.  Now that I'm back home, I've taken your advice and simply quilted in the ditch and a meander quilt pattern in…

Latest UFO finished

Posted by Janet/MO on June 15, 2016 at 5:34am 8 Comments

As some of you might recall, I made a vow to get as many of my older UFOs quilted, bound & labeled as I can this year.  I finished another one yesterday.  This is made from blocks I received in an internet exchange several years ago.  We had to choose a block that represented fall.  The blocks could be any size we wished so long as they were divisible by 3.  I love the challenge of fitting different sized blocks together.  This quilt had the additional challenge of having 13 blocks.  I'm…
