Yes this is for our "little" Miss Bailey for Halloween. She wants to be a "light pink and purple fairy". Our little 5 year old DGD is now 43" tall and 79 pounds (remember when she was a preemie?). First problem ...…Continue
Last night we were entertained at a fabulous Tai restaurant. It is one of those high end places, that doesn't put the prices on the menu. If you have to ask, you shouldn't be here kind of place. Well, we only go to those places on a vendor. Hubby is the guest speaker at a state conference...that's how we were invited. When, I say fabulous...total understatement! Thought you'd get a kick out of the desserts!…Continue
Today is National Drink A Beer Day....(who makes this up) Thought this was a cute way to celebrate...

Men are Deep Thinkers
I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking. My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing and I said 'nothing'.

Hello lovely Quilters!
I have been MIA here at QWU due to life....our little family has been so busy, I'm lucky to find time to quilt at all! But, since it has been all good things, I am very thankful to just be busy living out life's blessings. God knows I've had times of "other" business that is just painful so I'll take this season any day! :)

Vintage Stitchers met at Barbara's this week. Her home was already decorated for Halloween.
Diane was working on a scarf. The pattern is called "Lacy Leaves." She just had a copy with her, and there was no source, but she said it was from a booklet with four or five…Continue
I've been putzing around with little fall things lately. The runner is something we did in our quilt group on Saturday. I'm having a hard time trying to convince a few of the ladies that, yes, they can do their own free motion quilting. So, this was a quick project to try to sell them on the idea.…Continue
I want to make a pinwheel quilt for 2 babies at my church. I know the pattern but I don't know a good size to make. How do I determine the size of the blocks? I want it to be a good size so that it can be used for a while, especially since colder weather is coming. Can someone help me with size determination.
I feel like I've been flying around like a moth. It doesn't seem like I've gotten anything done. The garden is dying, except for the huge weeds and a zucchini that has been hiding out. I'm thinking of turning it into a wagon for my grandchildren. A few wheels and a sturdy rope ought to do it.
September flew by with quilt show, program for a guild at the other end of the state (almost exactly 400 miles from my house, the garden and doctor's appointments. Sheesh--you know…Continue
