About Me
I started quilting about 10 years ago -- mostly self-taught. I have a few UFO's in my closet (doesn't everyone???) - I resolve to finish them all in the New Year! I have started collecting fabric with cats or apples on them. I actually found a fabric once that had cats AND apples on the same fabric! What are the odds of that?

Hobbies and Interests
quilting, hand quilting, gardening, other
My pets are awesome!
I am a companion to 17 little cats (all different ages -- all former strays!) I have to confess to making little projects for them -- crocheted blankets and "bed quilts" (of course, they are "cat-sized" for THEIR little beds)!

Happy Fourth to all!

Now that school is over (until September, at least), I finally started cleaning out the "sewing room" -- really just an upstairs bedroom (LOL). I am sorting all the fabric I have acquired over the year. I am organizing the magazines and re-reading many of them. Hope everyone is well (and COOL). It is supposed to be hot up here on Long Island for the next few days... Take care all! Mary :-)

It has been a while!

Sorry to have left the "group" for so long. Hope everyone is well.

Found a new (for me) quilt shop online!

My friend came into school with the cutest little tote! When I asked her where she got it -- she told me that she made it from a pattern from the following web site:

Just ONE more quilt magazine (I promise) ;-)

Posted on March 4, 2009 at 5:27pm 12 Comments

Well... I did it again. I started a subscription to yet one more quilt magazine. I have only seen it a few times. It is called Quilter's Home (Mark Lipinski). The subtitle of the magazine is: "the only magazine for quilters that's fun to read". I received my first issue today. I laughed out loud at a few of the articles! The magazine has a little bit of an irreverent take of the whole world of quilting -- but in a good way. Has anyone else seen this magzine? I received a mailing a few weeks ago… Continue

Got Snow???

Posted on March 1, 2009 at 5:59pm 3 Comments

It seems as if we are going to have more snow to deal with here on Long Island! I am not sure if my school district will be closed -- but most of the surrounding districts have already announced that they will be closed tomorrow (Monday 3/2/09). Long Island is supposed to get 10-14 inches of snow! The sander/salter truck has already been up and down the street where I live -- so I guess this is going to be a big storm. The snow is falling here now as I write this (9:00 PM) -- it is very… Continue

I like the fact that there is something to read on everypage not just ads. There is informative articles on tools, threads, needles etc. It is a hard magazine to find in my area, I am going to try again for a subscription. That way I won't have go looking for it.

Hi, That is the beach here in Rockaway. I'm a few miles from Far Rockaway. The view is spectacular. I see that some people did not care for Quilter's Home magazine. Do you belong to Long Island Quilter's Society? I did belong until this year.

Hi... I was really disappointed in the magazine mostly because there were only three quilt patterns in it; the rest was all 'fluff' ... I DID like the article about Alex Anderson and the portable ironing board. I wasn't interested in recipes, gardening 'hints'. I'm sure there are plenty of others who will enjoy this type of magazine; I'm just not one of them.

Hello Renee! I don't often. I am not sure that I have that much to say ;-) But I do enjoy reading everyone else's comments. I am learning so much! Everyone is very kind. I think I will always be a "newbie". I try to attend all the quilt shows near my home -- there will be another quilt show at the beginning of March in New Jersey -- I am not sure where... I will have to find out. Thank you for your help with the "needle threading" issue. I think it is just "old age" -- it seems like the older I get, the smaller the needle holes get! No one else in my family quilts -- my grandmother was a big crochet lady -- but I was too young (and stupid) to sit with her and learn how to do it correctly (teenagers can be very unaware of the "important things" ). I like to quilt because I can choose the colors and the quilt design -- it is very creative, yet simple to do (I stick with the basic traditional patterns). I have been trying to teach my self paper-piecing. I bought a DVD from Connecting Threads. We'll see what happens. Talk to you soon. Mary :-)

Thanks Mary. I attempted to write a blog last night to detail the story of the quilts but it was late and I somehow messed up and lost all that I had written. I'm going to try again.
I can't take credit for the talent . I have done so much talking about my mother I felt the need to showcase her work along with mine; she had the real talent. I am still learning.
I need all the help I can get and I appreciate your encouragement.

Smiles* well I cam grateful for your comments. I try hard and am still learning. As for the cats, lol they are always into what I'm doing and i don't have a door so there's no way to keep them out. Usually when i lay the quilt and the back on the floor especially if I'm doing a patchwork back, there is a moving lump in it. Peanut loves to help! Always nice to meet new friends Mary and hope to hear from you soon!

Wow! What a lot of snow! I happen to like snow -- I get up to Vermont every chance I get. I can't leave anything lying around -- I have a "Tigger" too! He likes to climb on top of things and knock things over with his little paws! Then I can't find anything. I will send you some pictures of "my little guys" if you like. I am working on a small table topper -- I will post a picture. I have fun quilting -- even though my blocks don;t always line up with each other. Keeps me busy! I put my work in a small canvas bag and carry it with me so I can work wherever I am. I crochet too. Mostly little cat blankets -- boy what a life my cats have! Hope to hear from you soon. LI Cat Lady (Mary) :-)

Li Cat Lady:

I was reading someones blog today (I'm very new to this group) and noticed your comment and picture... you have cats too. I have four of them, and three of them are always assisting me with my blocks and pieces. When I retire for the night I have to cover everything up or in the morning I find most of my work rearranged or on the floor of my sewing room. Or covered with hair after laying all over them. 2 of them get into helping with my pin basting...they think its a game. It's nice to meet another quilting, cat loving, gardener. I hope to chat with you soon.
Quilty regards,
aline joy

I like the train quilt. You should enter it! I love to look at everyone's work at the Quiltfest each year! I have not started learning how to free motion quilt. I am sticking with the hand quilting. It keeps my hands busy and not eating! I am working on a small table topper quilt right now. I will send you a photo. About 11 years ago, I purchased a tiny home in Sunderland. Since that time, they have been building like crazy all up and down my road -- but I don't think they will be selling anything anytime soon. And the prices are SOOOOO expensive. Sunderland is a small town, but everyone is very nice. I am sure it is very cold up there today. But I don't mind -- I would rather be cold than hot. My neighbor taps his maple trees every year -- I love to watch the process. I am planning to retire up there in a few years -- but the economy is really presenting a challenge (oil prices, gas prices, etc.)! Let's hope things get better. I will still buy fabric no matter what! Talk to you again soon.
