March 27

Posted by Carol B of ET on March 27, 2017 at 8:43am 0 Comments

Morning friends and readers.  I hope you have had a wonderful week.

Not harping on my situation, but today is the first day I have not woken up without pain.  My back is healing slower that I had hoped.

I did not get any fun things done this week.  I take that back a little.  We had stopped by our high school FFA agriculture greenhouse.  They were having a sale on some flowering and vegetable plants they had started.  If you have ever gone to your local garden…

Flashback Monday

Posted by Pam/NY on March 27, 2017 at 7:34am 4 Comments

Some of you that have been on this site for years will remember Miss Riley from Texas. What an artist and quilter she was. Unfortunately, she passed away. I saw these pictures this week and thought of her paintings of blue bonnets. We are in our last week in Florida. Next week, I will be in Orlando getting…

quilt kits giveaway

Posted by Bonnie on March 25, 2017 at 2:17pm 6 Comments

We are downsizing and moving.   There are 2 boxes of my quilt "kits".  Some are already pieced but need the applique, one just needs quilting, several are just fabrics that go good together.  

I'll mail the boxes to a person or group who will use them for good.

Spring fever

Posted by Barbara Graham on March 23, 2017 at 11:00am 4 Comments

Our totally unusual winter with the HUGE drifts is moving into spring. The last of the drifts in my yard are not very spectacular anymore. Now they are small and covered with dirt that has blown in. I am developing "garden fever". It is a very common ailment. Yesterday was so bad that I cleaned the garage (okay, half of it) so I could set up my seed sprouting spot.

It is still weeks before the "last freeze", or not. We might be done with the severe cold but we have a long history of…

March 20 - the confusing week

Posted by Carol B of ET on March 20, 2017 at 8:00am 0 Comments

I hope all had a great week.  Mine could have been better.  

While in the Dallas area caring for our grandson, I went to pick him up and something went out in my lower back.  It is healing slowly.

Since I was mostly out of commission, no crafts were done.  I had a hard time figuring out what day of the week it was, since I went to my sons' on Saturday and came home on Tuesday.  I just felt my days were mixed up.

I will share some pictures of my…

Happy National Quilting Day

Posted by Janet/MO on March 18, 2017 at 5:32pm 6 Comments

If you ask my husband, he will tell you that I consider every day to be quilting day, but this is the official National Quilting Day.  I went on a road trip with 3 friends to Warsaw, MO, which is a small town north of Springfield where we visited 3 stores where we all made sure to support the local economy.  Then we went to this bar-b-que restaurant that has probably been there since the 1940's.  Had wonderful food!  All in all a fabulous way to spend a sunny Saturday in March.
