You wrote on Irene's post: "How could we ever get through all that life has to offer without being able to sit in a quiet spot and take a few stitches. It makes the rest bearable because out of the melee of life something beautiful is created. Something in our hands that we can see and something in our hearts that we can't see but is nevertheless very real."  

WELL SAID!  Very well said.  Thank you.

I agree, stitching can be a real comfort and at the same time your creating beautiful things.  I'm looking forward to sitting at my machines without having to jump up every 5 minutes to tend to Bud.

And I just read the post under mine and found out that you play the fiddle -- oh how I'd love to hear you....it's some of my favorite music.

Jodi, I took your advice and put Mr. Scarecrow away for a bit.  But after I had a chance to vent, it didn't take long for me to dig him out again and figure out how to make it all work.  I still like him a lot now that he's finished!

Jodi-I would love to hear you play the fiddle...I also am from Nebr. My family was from Schuyler. My father was an international contractor, so we moved several times, but all the family still hang in eastern Nebr.

Jodi, I read your response to Pam's blog, where you said that your husband bought you 6 silver spoons at an antique store. It reminded me that years ago, I visited some very elderly cousins of my grandmother. They told me that one of their aunts bought them each 6 silver spoons engraved with their name because "a lady should have 6 engraved silver spoons." We used them during the visit. I have many silver spoons belonging to my ancestors, the oldest of which are six silver spoons belonging to my g-g-g-grandmother born in 1794. I'm glad you're enjoying your spoons and please pass them down to someone who will treasure and use them!

Thank you Jody on your nice  comment regarding my sister.  We have been close all our lives, being two years apart.  It hurts so bad seeing her this sick.

Yet another thing we have in common!  I used to work in a law office as well.

Life takes some very unexpected turns. This is what has been happening with me,

On Jan 7th Don left about 1:30p to take a drive while I went to a church meeting. He takes many drives and always comes back in time for supper at 5p so at 6:30, when he wasn’t back yet and it was dark, I called the town marshall and asked "when should I start to panic." He said he would be right there and he was. Don would not…


Sudoku quilt #2

Posted on June 27, 2015 at 7:44pm 17 Comments

This quilt is based on a Sudoku puzzle and is the second one I have made. I am tying the first one now so it is taking longer. I think they are a lot of fun and I am always tempted to start another one even though I have piles of UFOs begging to be worked on. In a Sudoku quilt (or puzzle) the same single fabric (or number) may not appear twice in the same row, column or in any of the nine blocks. The first photo is the back; the second is the front of the quilt.…


Sunbonnet Sue & Overall Bill

I received the quilt on the left from my grandmother in 1958 when my first son was born. I used it with all four of my babies. Washed it many, many times in a wringer washer and hung it outside on the clothesline to dry. My grandmother hand appliqued the pieces on, hand embroidered the bonnets with fancy stitches, and quilted the whole thing by hand. She put the binding on by…
