How is everyone? Good I hope. I am back from playing in NYC. My friend and I went and saw Martha Stewart, Mamma Mia, and Wicked. What a whopping 48 hours it was. Martha is located in the fashion district and the fabric in the windows was amazing. I am back to sewing, right now I'm working on a very large quilted bag to hold all of my rulers. I will post a pic when I am finished the fabric is really pretty. I finished piecing a wallhanging (the one I posted) and now it is waiting for some… Continue

To wash or not to wash

I posted a picture of one of my current projects and also of my buddy Beemer. I am trying to get a picture of my kids up but am having trouble. Well maybe later. I am going back to quilting right now. Hope… Continue

Hi this is my first post and I am very new to this. Will I ever get to quilt is my question. I have two young boys, they are 8 and almost 12. There never seems to be enough hours in the day. I'm sure this is not new news to anyone. I always have good intentions but it never seems to happen. I have many UFO's and so many new projects I want to start. I am hoping to get to do a little today and I am planning on Monday the whole day because I will be on vacation from work. Well we'll see how the… Continue

Oh yes, hello Kim! Hope you are staying busy cleaning lots of teeth and taking lots of xray pics...and somewhere finding time to dabble w/thread, needle, and cotton fabric.
Any new projects for this new year? Do tell!

I usually do not pre wash my fabrics, I buy good quality and do not find a need. I will test dark colors , red and purple.
