I hope this post finds everyone well. I have been fighting allergies all week. The pollen level here has gone up to spring time levels. Itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, sinus drainage. Just miserable. But I know it will end, someday. Daffodils are in full bloom along with our Arizona Ash tree. Even our Chinese pistache is trying to bud out. Way to early. I pray we do not get a hard freeze now. I have even seen robins. So all of you that have snow, please send it elsewhere.…Continue
The Quilt Lover's Hangout in North Ft. Myers, Fl had show and tell while you sipped mimosas! Now, that is a nice way to spend a couple hours while the guys are at the Daytona 500. The picture shows about a quarter of the shop...great store. What's nice is they rent machines for $10. Next year, I will bring mine. Bought a few fat quarters of fabrics that look like water for a wallhanging.…Continue

They were going to have a get together for family and friends on Sunday. So, fast plans for a…Continue
This is an old design from my stash, 1989 to be exact. I counted 27 designs I have left to complete. I have pledged not to draw any new ones until those get done. At the rate I'm going it'll be 10 or so years before I get done. Ouch!
A few years ago I hosted a swap with the Machine Embroidery Buddies group & chose owls as the theme. Eight of us participated so I ended up making 2 blocks in order to have enough for a wallhanging. I made the block that is the center of the 1st row and the block of the owl wearing overalls in the bottom row. After all if you live in farm country in Missouri, you need an owl that wears overalls right?! It will hang in my newly repainted office once I get a new curtain rod to hang it…Continue
