It has been seventeen months since I left my house and so much has happened.
There were the three months in transitional care, trying to 're-learning to stand and walk...which never really happened.
After Wayne died in April 2013, I didn't come up for air until about September. Had I not been so lost in grief I could have moved long ago.
As I think back, I only needed assistance for the first twelve days that I resided in Assisted living. If I…Continue
Hi All! I hope everyone had a great week! It's FRIDAY! Tomorrow is our monthly sit and sew at the church and again I'm in need of some girl time, and to GET OUT OF THIS HOUSE! Cabin fever is killing me!
I had no intention of working on this project today. I actually had it pressed and hanging neatly waiting on my free motion skills to improve. I thought about it for a min. and thought what the heck, the only way I'm gonna learn is to just do it! So that's what I did! I'm…Continue
Have been reading everyone's postings. I am really tired of the snow here in MI. Sun is out today and up to 40 so DH and I will be going out for a walk....fresh air...
I spent January making Hop to it applique quilt. I had purchased the book several years ago on sale for $3 and decided to use up some batik scraps. All except the background was scraps I have been collecting, including the sashing. I surprised myself by FMQ, it was not a hard as I though. I posted a pic. …Continue
I was just reading everyones posts and looked up to see the thread spools. Variegated threads. Woo hoo. I've been waiting for these for a while. I would love it if they had them on large cones for quilting machines but I've got my order in for the smaller projects.
Can you settle a disagreement for me please?
I say: fat quarters sold as fat quarters need to be 18"x22" NOT including the selvage edge.
She says: fat quarters that are sold in stores and online are measured outside the selvage edge and that edge is included in the 18"x22" measurement.
I've never (until now), purchased a fat quarter in a retail store nor online that even has a selvage edge.
To celebrate National Quilt Month in March, Connecting Threads will offer a Mystery Quilt 2014 Quilt Along. This is our second Mystery Quilt and promises to be lots of fun for all. We think you will enjoy making this three-part pattern. The catch is that you won’t know what the quilt looks like until Part 3!
What are the dates of the quilt along?
Part 1 - Wednesday, March 19th
Part 2 - Wednesday, March 26th
Part 3 - Wednesday, April…
I love to shop ONLINE with CT of course. but sometimes I NEED the fabric TODAY. I found a quilt shop in Vancouver, WA that I really enjoy. A Quilt Forever on 99 near I 5. it's neat and very clean. new in fact, I think they opened this past fall.
It's been so long since I've posted, that I nearly forgot how to.
I've just ordered the Boutis book from Connecting threads, and started looking into what it really is. What caught my eye was a ring bearer's pillow that I want to make for my daughter who is getting married in July.
Do any of our international friends know if this book is still in publication and how much it would cost? I looked at Amazon here and it's $135 for a used one, and that doesn't guarantee that the…Continue
