A Roller Coaster year so far!

Posted on May 24, 2016 at 6:38am 4 Comments

Good morning all;

I hope that you all have had a wonderful New Year and a good start to the 2016 year. I wish you many blessings and joys albeit a little late now that spring is here.

I have had quite a roller coaster year so far, and as a result have been absent from my postings.

Sadly, my little sheltie, Koka got very sick in February with ear infections (vetted) and her issues mushroomed throughout the rest of the winter. She was diagnosed with many issues,…

Happy New Year 2015

Posted on January 10, 2015 at 6:10am 4 Comments

I've tried to post in the new year with pictures of completed projects but the internet connection is so slow that I could complete another large quilt in the process. So you'll have to take my word for it that I did what I did and completed said projects w/o visual proof!

Yes, the holiday season was a busy one with other activities that address my musical interests. I participated in a local community chorus of 80 + voices with orchestra and handbells. It was an awesome concert…

Well done and congratulations on the ribbons at the various shows.  Now you r retired, life just gets busier and busier, one wonders how did I ever have time to work and everything else, it's now time to enjoy.  Your photo is interesting, what is growing in the field you r in

Thanks, Billie.  It's hard to believe the wedding was already a year ago.  It was a simple wedding, but you're right, it was beautiful.  She's going to be a momma in December.

Good morning, Billie!  Thank you so much for your kind comments on the DWR.  Everyone has blessed me with their encouragement and shared excitement for this project.  Seems like I learn something new with each quilt.  Thanks again.  You blessed me with your kindness.

Don't feel like you opened a can of worms.  I'm semi-picky - meaning I am not going back to re-do the one or two I did before I considered mitering, but I think I'll be happier if I buckle down and miter the corners.  (I knew I should be doing it, but was being lazy.)  The mitered corners really do lay better - no rippling of the border.  It looks nicer, too.  I think I'll be happier if I take the time and just get it figured out.  I'm not shooting for perfect, though.  :)

I'm having a hard time mitering the inner corners.  I would like them crisp and mitered, but may just have to live with what I'm doing.  I have looked up some tutorials on the internet, but still haven't quite gotten it figured out, since the miter is so slight.   Did the judges tell you how it should be done?

It will never be judged (I hope) and my daughter only cares that it was made with love and prayers.

Billie!!! I had to stop by and check out your page but also to say a HUGE thank you!! You recommended the Wing Clipper for me to help with my "goose" issue.  I not only found it locally, the shop it was in was lovely and I never knew it existed!!  I came home to use it and my geese are almost perfect!! Some exactly so! I'm very thankful as I never knew such a tool existed and I appreciate your recommendation....no more angry goose maker here! :)  Thank you so much!! I'm going to "snoop" around your page and may leave more comments....

Just saw your second comment--yes, the recital went beautifully.

Thank you, Billie--the DIC was fun to make.  It was my reward for organizing my stash and going through and cutting my scraps into useable sizes.  The unexpected bonus is that it's a great memory quilt, with scraps from just about every quilt I've made.
