Hubby was walking around the lake last week. He came in and grabbed his keys and headed out, about 5 minutes later he came in with this treasure:

It was sitting alongside of the road with a free sign!!!!

He looked around to see if someone going to say it was a…

San Francisco Giants quilt top

Posted by Janet/MO on August 22, 2015 at 12:53pm 13 Comments

I have a BIL who lives and breathes the SF Giants even to the point he has his own "uniform".  Many times over the years he has asked me to make him a quilt showing their logo, but never could make him understand that fabrics like that are not always available.  A few weeks ago I received a notice from AQS that they were selling fabrics with the logos of all major baseball leagues so I immediately contacted him & told him if he would pay for the materials, I would finally make him a…


I can't believe it!

Posted by Roxann on August 20, 2015 at 10:00am 26 Comments

I hardly ever take the time to custom quilt my own stuff, but business slows down in the summer which is ok and gives me some time to work on my own projects, as well as keep up with yard work.  I have been busy trying to finish up the UFO's that are cluttering up my closet and this is one I finished and had enough backing to actually be able to quilt it too!!  I'm happy with how it turned out.  My greatest compliment was when DH was looking at it and pointed to the feather border and said,…


Three Whales for Kaktovik!

Posted by Carol Ann Hinton on August 19, 2015 at 5:08pm 9 Comments

As some of you may remember, my DS and DDIL live in the remote village of Kaktovik, in far northern Alaska, year around, where DS is the school librarian and DDIL is the village postmaster.  During "summer" break this year, DS visited us here in northern California for some weeks for the first time in three years.  As postmaster and only employee of the US Postal Service in Kaktovik (written as "Qaaktugvik" in the local Inupiat (pronounced In.NOO.pee.aht) language, DDIL was unable to come…


Just a tad more editing

Posted by Terri D. on August 19, 2015 at 4:37pm 5 Comments

Think I'm going to leave this alone for a while until the painting tells me the next way to go. Not totally happy with the sky or the moon rise, but it's getting there. Need to do a little more with the water in way of shadowing and work on the splash. I thought about putting in another dolphin; however, with the way the current one is situated, to add another would be too crowded. Perhaps one at a later date. 

I do appreciate all the comments and input, it is very helpful.…
