Okay, Okay! So I'm done already!

Posted on January 7, 2010 at 1:15pm 21 Comments

Okay, so I admit it, I've been a complete loser! After being harrassed, er, I mean ENCOURAGED, by numerous other employees/relatives (not naming any names here), as well as a few QWU members, I'm FINALLY getting around to posting my completely finished Southern Stars Quilt. So without further ado......

I have to confess, it's been done for a few months now, but I've been such a slacker and neglected to post the finished product for all to see. I… Continue

So much for my sewing binge

Posted on October 5, 2009 at 9:30am 10 Comments

I really had the best of intentions this weekend. I picked out a really cute fall tabletopper pattern from an old Heather Mulder Peterson book, laid out all my fabric and began cutting. Then my dear hubby went out and picked the rest of the apples off our tree, came in with three buckets and said "What are we going to do with all of these, Hon?" You see, I'd already canned 47 jars of applesauce from said tree two weeks ago. Not to mention the 38 jars of peaches and 34 jars of pears I've also… Continue

Oh whatever shall I quilt?

The kids are back in school, and I've finally put the house back together. I even finished up another old UFO! (Yay me!) So now I'm itching to make something NEW. I'm sitting here staring at the Hearth and Home FQ samper fabric I bought, wondering what I can make that I can get done in a weekend, so it doesn't turn into yet another UFO. Hmmm....maybe a table topper? Just imagining the possibilities makes me almost giddy! I know once I get started on whatever it is, my family won't get dinner… Continue

Kristin Sews Karen's UFO

Posted on April 17, 2009 at 10:15am 20 Comments

As some of you know, Karen, our fearless and fabulous VP here at Connecting Threads, hosts our online UFO group. Over the past few months Karen has been tackling all her much beloved unfinished projects and putting the rest of us at CT to shame. However, she also has had a few UFO's that she doesn't love quite so much. A few of them ended up in our free box at work. Since I mostly work from home, I'm usually not privy to all the goodies that end up in there, which means that by the time I dig… Continue

Confessions of a Quiltaholic

Posted on February 18, 2009 at 1:11pm 5 Comments

So, since I don't already have nearly enough ufo's I've decided I HAVE to make yet another sampler quilt! While at my quilt group, I saw a GORGEOUS sampler quilt by Fons and Porter, which our fearless leader, Barbara Perkins, is going to make with a bunch of our other quilting friends. She invited me to join in, and when I saw the photo, I decided I HAD to have it! Hmmm...two quilt groups is really not much, is it? Personally, I think that's rather modest. Oh, but I forgot to count the Southern… Continue

Happy Birthday Kristin! I hope you enjoy your special day. I sure do miss seeing you around the site here. I missed out on your pattern/kit that I wanted soo bad but money was an issue and I missed out. Have a great day.

Kristin, I think I just saw (and downloaded) one of your patterns off of the Quilt Symposium magazine site. Have always liked your work. Good luck in your new business.

I'm glad your departure was by choice - whatever the circumstances that is always better than a lay off. How nice that CT is carrying your patterns. That says a lot about you! It is amazing how all this is affecting so many of us. I'm not mad, as some are, but I am grieving. Just glad Karen is staying on the site as a member, as are you.
