About Me
I am a newbie quilter. 'Nuff said.

In addition to quilting, cross stitch, and fashion sewing I am also a sometime college student (who is going on 30 years old).

My interests are many. To name a few I enjoy, as mentioned above, quilting, sewing, and cross stitch. In addition to that I also read a tremendous amount.

When I am not doing something with fabric, thread, aida, or books, I am (in addition to being a late blooming college student) a transcript editor.

Back when I lived in the Texas hill country, I also enjoyed gardening. I also had a kitty that I left in the care of good people and receive regular updates on.

My blog posts are mainly centered on my learning experiences in quilting and observations on life in general. The posts illustrate my perspective that the cosmos are comic. I hope you get a good chuckle from them.

Please feel free to share your comments on my blog, projects, and photos. You can also throw me a bone of wisdom or two. I won't complain. ;)
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, machine quilting, embroidery, general sewing, gardening

Meet Sir High & Lofty

Posted on February 24, 2009 at 5:48pm 4 Comments

On a whim I decided to do the owl pattern I designed the other day. This is a much simpler version of him (given that I had to dig through my less-than-substantial stash). I also scaled him down considerably, too. He is a little slapdash, but eh.

Without further delay, meet Sir High & Lofty:

Here is the pattern (*note that fabric yardage for backing and binding is not… Continue

Owl Block

Posted on February 23, 2009 at 10:48am 6 Comments

Now that I finished Country Estate I have time to play with EQ6 a bit more. This time I created my own block. I went to search for an owl block in the block library, but couldn't find one. Thus, I have created my own.

Behold! An owl block!


Here is the EQ6 project file for those interested:… Continue

Finally finished Country Estate, woot!

I have finally completed Country Estate. Photos have been posted and I can now die happy sleep under my nice new bed spread.

It was a long arduous journey friends, but at approx. 12:30am I completed the last stitch of binding.

Muhaha hahaha hahahaha!

London Trip

Posted on February 15, 2009 at 4:08pm 0 Comments

I was in London this past December and I thought I would share some of the more memorable photos from my trip.

The best was, indeed, on the last day. As I was heading back to Terminal 5 at the London Heathrow airport, I spied a lone young Asian man asleep on the same car with me. This provided a quarter of an hour's worth of entertainment while I watched him. He came perilously close to the blue bar in front of him as he slipped forward during his oblivion. Once he did make contact… Continue

Share the love..of spring

I was fiddling with EQ6 today while taking a break from the Country Estate quilt. I used only Connecting Threads fabrics. Here are the results of my diligence...and slacking off.

If you have EQ6, you can download the complete project file here: Spring… Continue

Hi Nickleye, I will be coming to Florida in two weeks (Daytona Beach/Sanford area) and wonder if you know of any good quilt shops in that area that I should visit while there. I love looking at your pictures, I get inspired every time! Thanks/Myrtle from Virginia

LOL, aren't we all friends with our seam ripper?! I will be visiting my mum in Lakeland and will be checking out any local shops around there and Tampa also.

Thank you for the compliments you left on my lighthouse quilt! Your quilt on the bed is very nicely done, looks perfectly pieced!
What part of Florida are you in, I have visited some areas and there are some nice quilt shops down there. It is fun to travel and see how many quilt shops you can find and shop at :)
Have a good day!

I am so impressed with what you have accomplished. You're on your way to being one of the great needleartists.
It's interesting that #15 in your photos is the exact pattern I discussed with another quilter just a few minutes ago. It's a variation on an old pattern called Hummingbird.
I have EQ5 that my Mom bought but never downloaded and left to me when she passed away. I have a new computer so I'm excited about getting into it (even if EQ6 in now out)
You have really inspired me.

Retail Therapy! Good for what ails ya! You should try it. It is interesting that you dived right into using the EQ for designing your quilts. I have EQ4 but haven't used it much, I got it before I really knew how to use a computer so I think that is why. Great quilts, I like your pics.

You're welcome! I will probably be posting some more pics later this week. It will be of potholders that I am doing right now.

Thank you, Nickleye, for the wonderful comments on my work. I am learning to 'hear' and 'see' when I work with my fabrics. They are usually what inspire me.
