Hello everyone. I'm still working on cleaning everything up after the renovations and getting my sewing room going. I'm kind of sad as my daughter doesn't seem to want anything to do with me. It's a long story. My ex and I have been divorced almost 18 years. She is 33. It's a lonnnnnnnng story but I try so hard to have her in my life. She doesn't call and when I do send her a message and she does answer, the answer is very short. I guess this is just one of those days that I'm…Continue

Apparently there is another scam going on. Predators are putting 100 dollar bills under your windshield wiper and when you get out to retrieve it, they rob you or steal your car. I just don't understand the minds of these people.

I normally try to make a little something for both of my sisters for Christmas. One has a birthday on Dec 14th & the other on Jan 10th so I consider what I make to be birthday gifts too. I decided to make them each a mug rug & wow, all I can say is it can become kind of addicting to make these cute little jewels! LOL What a great way to use up scraps left over from other projects too! I am going to buy a cute Christmas mug for each of them too.…Continue
My guild has been having steadily declining sales of tickets for our raffle quilt for the past 8 years or so. I believe there was a small upward bump one year when we did a paper pieced star quilt that was all blue and green batiks. Another small bump came when we did a sampler quilt with traditional colors/fabrics.
This led us to have a discussion wondering what elements of a quilt tend to attract…
Good morning- Taking a break before I clean up after the shower/dinner party. It was a lot of fun, but as you know, a lot of work! I caught the sunset in this picture. We have the view of Syracuse at night...very pretty.…Continue
I've been soooo out of touch, haven't even been on the computer too much. I get on and read when I can, but rarely take the time to comment. Thirty lashes for me! Sewing time is also short, and I don't feel like I accomplish much. I am working 5-6 hours a day, I don't know how you full timers find time to sew/quilt! Kudos to you!
I do have an embroidery machine now, and enjoy that very much when I get the chance. I never thought I would have an embroidery machine. I always…Continue
