About Me
I am an amateur quilter - but it has always been a dream of mine. So, am always looking for ideas and helpful hints.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, hand quilting, knitting

I am happy to be a part of this group.  I am an amateur quilter - have always dreamed of just being able to quilt and quilt.  However, was a single Mom and just did not take the time.  After retirement have moved to be near a daughter and her family.  Now I am going to start quilting!  Well, maybe not.  Now I have a disabled son living with me - so am back working part time in the Church office.  Love my job - but it does not leave much time for that quilting.

I tell my friends that I will just plan a little quilt shop for Heaven.  When I am in the fabric stores, I pick out material that I really like, and order some for my Shop.  I hope God is getting my order. I should pick a good name for it???

Have gone thru my stash which is not very big - then remembered a drawer in my hutch that is full of fabric.  Now to get that out and see what I can find.

Back to Quilting

Posted on May 23, 2017 at 9:06am 3 Comments

Well, did not realize it has been a whole year since I have been here - but have been doing some "quilting" recently.  Have made a couple of table runners for my daughter - need to get pictures posted.  She loves chickens so one had chickens and the other on is farm fabric.  And am looking for material for another one.

Have started a quilt for my son - he loves cats and found some great "cat" fabric at Missouri Quilt Co.  He wants it long enough so his feet do not stick out…

Bright sunshine this morning - predicted 78 today and 80 tomorrow.  YEAH!!  Finally!!  Love the warm summer days.

Finally getting a small sewing area set up in my bedrom.  Our apartment is just too small to try to set it up here in the living room or dining area.  And did a bit of sewing yesterday afternoon.  Now need to get out some of the material i want to use.  Do not have much, but am sure I will have the colors i want.  Will be good to start sewing some again.

Will be…

A Terrific Tuesday

Posted on March 29, 2016 at 9:03am 4 Comments

Am going to the DoNut Shop this morning to meet a friend for our Bible study - we have been meeting there Tues mornings for about 4 years.  And have had such a bless time.

Then a bit of shopping - i want to get one of those small table-top ironing boards and to the club for a walk on the treadmill.  Then back to my sewing later.  Am working on quarter inch seams and matching corners when joining squares.  Will get a couple of pictures posted.

Hope everyone is…

I may have read your post wrong. I thought you were looking for a setting for your blocks. The mystery quilt center is different. I did make two and just about have them quilted. Nice to not work outside the home. But not working because of seeing double, so I don't enjoy my double vision. My sewing is very different and quilting has become simple, simple.

Good morning Barb.  Thank you for your nice comments on my sewing room and Loon wall hanging.  Last Summer we moved to a senior apartment across town.  That was my sewing room at the house we left. ( miss my house and that sewing room)  The apartment has two bedrooms so I took the biggest one for my sewing room here in the apartment.  It has a big closet to put all my rolling storage bins in. I still haven't got my kitchen and living room curtains made so after those are up I will be taking photos of this apartment and my new sewing room.  Bud wasn't here long before having to be put in long term care. He has dementia and his legs and feet have neuropathy which made it hard for me to take care of him.  He was falling a lot and I couldn't get out of his site.  It is a dull stormy day here  so I will be hunkered down in my sewing room.  Keep in touch. I'm so glad you are back among us.

Good morning Barb,

It sounds as though you have had a lot to cope with over the past year.  It is a huge adjustment and acceptance when you loose a child and a sister, its such a lote to cope with.  I am pleased to hear you have family near you for support.  My mum use to say...the Lord only gives us what he knows we can cope with, the back fits the burdon, so i take comfort from that saying when things seem too much.  It is great that you are now quilting again, it is an all consuming hobby, so enjoyable, i like to try and be a little creative but i am a little slow, so production is low, enjoyment high...smile.  keep your chin up as they say here in uk, i look forward to seeing your work when you have learned how to post pics like me. Bye for now,

Good to hear from you, Barb!  Glad you are still stopping in to read the posts occasionally.  I'm glad to hear you are involved in a knitting group.  Those smaller, portable handwork crafts are very fulfilling.  I used to do a lot of crocheting, just for that reason.  It was handy and portable.  I just needed thread and the hook.  Blessings to you!

Hi Barb!  Thanks for stopping by to comment on the DWR photo.  I have come a long way on it since then, but still have about 14 blocks left to go.  I hoped to have it finished by December, but am still plugging away.  Their first anniversary is in June.  Hopefully I'll have it done for them before then!  I'm actually wanting to work on some other projects, so I hope to have it finished in a month or so.  This time of year my fingers get dry and cracked, which makes it painful to wear my thimble.  It slows down the hand quilting when that happens.  :)  May you have a great weekend and good upcoming week!

thanks for the chuckle about postcards on postcards vs. bookmarks. Oh for the days of the penny postcards and 3 cent stamps for regular mail. We may be dating ourselves, but weren't those the days! So many things for just a penny. Now it costs more to make a penny than what it's worth. What has happened to our world? Thanks for taking me back. Cindy

It seems that I have way more projects started than I have time to do them! But, I don't mind if I never run out of things I want to do or try. Keeps me going and my mind alive!

Give the purses a try. Actually, they were my first real start into the quilting end of sewing. I was browsing in a fabulous quilt shop in Hanibal, MO when I saw the fabric and purse pattern that I just had to have.  I have made several since. If you can sew a straight seam, you can make one. There are some neat patterns right here on CT.

Another project that I am anxious to start on is a redwork wall hanging. I have found the pattern, just waiting till I get other started projects completed. And it is sort of a winter-type pattern, so I have a little time.

Happy sewing, and Happy Mother's Day!
