Hi Colleen, I too have tried to leave you a comment on your blog but was unsuccessful. I can't get it to accept my attempts to register. If you know how I can do it, please let me know. Thanks a bunch!

Colleen, have tried to leave a comment on your blog, but it won't let me. What do I need to do? I get your blog in my e-mail box. Any suggestions?

Thank you for the welcome, you are correct this is a busy time of the year.  I hope to do more sewing/quilting after the Holidays.  Have a Blessed Season.

Hi Colleen, you perhaps may know of people personally who need (yourself included) quilts to keep them warm. I have some that I would like to send. If you know of anyone and/or would be willing to accept them, let me know. I don't want to put added pressure on you with all you've been through, but the offer is here. I would much rather have them go to where I know someone is needing them. Thanks a bunch. Will send a friend request so we can communicate.

Colleen, I am going to send you a check for your niece's friends who lost everything. We want someone to have all the money. They know what they need, better than us. I would like for them to buy the girls some toys...it breaks my heart what has happened.

MISSING QUILT TOP

Posted on October 9, 2012 at 4:24am 15 Comments

As many of you know, I work at a local quilt shop; Pieceful Quilting in Riverhead, New York.
As many quilt shop do, we have various Block of the Month programs throughout the year.
One such BOM is Women of Courage from Nancy Gere and Windham Fabrics.
This is a quilt designed by Denice Lipscomb.
This photo doesn't do this quilt justice.  It is a beautiful quilt that…

Happy Valentine's Day

Posted on February 14, 2012 at 4:49am 13 Comments

Now for a funny Valentine's story.  When my husband (gotta love this guy) and I were out to dinner the other night I told him not to get me flowers this year for Valentine's Day.  They are too expensive and I would prefer 12 cans of my favorite soup.  That's right people, I said soup.
I won't go into the reasons why I want the soup except (aside from the obvious) for the most important one which is that it is the only…

Yesterday was a wacky day...thunder, rain, sunshine, thunder, darkness, rain, thunder, sunshine...simply crazy!
I cannot believe how long it's been since I posted.  Life has been really busy and every time I turn around there's another event to attend or a project to get working on.
Thank goodness I love it all!!!

My Little Pumpkin...

Posted on September 12, 2011 at 4:13am 1 Comment

Yesterday I had a fantastic day sewing with some friends!

I actually made only two pillowcases because I was talking and laughing sew much.
My daughter called and asked me if they had left one of my grandson's favorite movies (BOLT) at the house last week...they did...she also "reminded" me that I said they could take "How the Grinch..." home and they didn't...sew could I mail them?  Of course!  Now what she doesn't know is that I made a pillowcase for my little guy out of…

Not so productive weekend...

Posted on August 22, 2011 at 4:02am 2 Comments

Good Monday Morning!
My Sunday was not as productive as I had hoped it would be. :(
My son and his fiance were here until this morning so they were around all day yesterday.
That didn't leave me as much time to get the sewing done on the two quilts.
Don't get me wrong...I enjoy having the kids around ~ just not during a deadline!


Well, the piecing is complete on the Baseball Quilt for my wonderful brother.
It really is…

I made some progress on one of the two quilts I have to finish by Aug. 27th...I must be crazy!

This one is for my brother!  He just turned the big 50!  He is a major baseball fanatic!  Well, to be fair, he really loves all the sports (all my brothers do)!…

It's raining...it's pouring...quilts!

Actually ~ it really is raining...and raining...and raining!  It really is pouring but I do think we need the rain.  It has not rained in over a week ~ it is a good rain!
It also makes for a great day to sew!

And yes, sew I must!
I have to finish up the top for my nephew's wedding quilt (shower is August 28th).
The borders are in the works and it is looking very nice if I say sew myself!
BUT NOW ~ there is another special event for a very…
