It's finally started raining in western Washington

Posted by Kathy/WA on August 30, 2014 at 9:37am 2 Comments

As summers go out here we've had a very mild summer.  Very little rain sense June and not a lot of the hot temps.  It's mostly been in the 80's even in August which kind of surprised me.  I like the warmer weather!

So what does one do when it starts raining?  I finished the mariner quilt the other night, (see earlier post). I've had my next project loaded on the LA sense taking the other off but I haven't figured out all the quilting designs to fill up the space.  Deciding that it…

And my summer is almost over!

Posted by Sue S. / OR on August 28, 2014 at 10:42pm 6 Comments

Well, here we are...the tail end of summer. I work at our local middle school, we start back on Sept 2, the summer went way too fast. I did get one quilt done this summer for my oldest son's friend. I still need to post a pic of it completed. My goal was to get a queen size quilt done for OUR bed, but that is only in the beginning stages.

I tackled cleaning out many of our closets. I've decided that some sort of hobbit brings things Into this house at night and dumps it all in my closets!… Continue

In answer to Pam in New York

Not much  quilting in this house over the summer; not since May.  A couple weeks ago I was in quilt withdrawal so worked on a wall hanging for church.  It was a panel of Bible verses so cut them and pieced them with coordinating batiks; colors are rusts, browns, tans, etc.  Have another panel in blues, purples, touch of yellow; will do this for church also.  Am still working on Crabapple Hill red embroidery "Winter Wonderland".  Haven't done embroidery for years; kinda fun.  Also have "Over…

I have had my new Tin Lizzie for two weeks and have quilted six quilts-3 baby, 1 lap, 1 twin and 1 queen.  I am having such a good time.  I have picked out fabric for three more tops, like I didn't already have over 50 waiting to be quilted! The quilts I have finished were some printed pieces that were left by my Mom and I am glad to be able to practice on them.  It feels like she is here with me enjoying the learning process.  I even got the floors moped and laundry done this week.…

Practicing my parade wave

Bad picture of an old UFO I've been working on. I think I started this 20 years ago. Holy mackerel, the thing was NOT square when I attacked it. It's better now but yikes. I think I know why I put in in the "later" stack.

As for the title of this post, I'm going to be one of several guests of honor (?) in the…

Finished UFO

Posted by Linda Christianson on August 28, 2014 at 5:04pm 6 Comments

I have finished some UFO quilts this Summer,  like two of My Grandmother's Choice (CT has a group). Now there is block of the week for  Jane Austen Album. It is free and it is a blog from Saturday Morning Post. I have pictures but it will take some time to post them. In July I had both of my eyes worked on. Aug. I got to have the right one done over, because the lens dropped through a hole. What a mess and what a mess it is to sew. Did go back to work the past four days. That is my…

Chiming in...

Posted by Prairie Quilter/NE on August 28, 2014 at 4:23pm 9 Comments

Okay, Pam, here goes: 

Mom and I have canned over 20 quarts of apple pie filling, 9 pints of green beans (didn't have too many), 38 pints of salsa, 15 half-pints of apple sauce, 17 pints of hamburger dill pickles, and 11 half-pints of apple butter, along with some jelly.  

Right off the bat, I burned the bejeepers out of my hand after spilling the pie filling goop as I was ladling it into jars.  Lesson learned.  It didn't really…
