About Me
I have been quilting since 2003. I had been collecting quilt books, patterns, and how-tos for oh so many years. I knew I could do it in my head but took moving to Calgary Alberta for four years to buy a machine and learn how to quilt. Quilting has become my one true love - next to my family (husband and three boys). I am a Texas girl now and always.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, machine quilting, embroidery
My pets are awesome!
7 dogs, Super Puppy, Peewee, Bailey, Zoey, Bo, Sassy, Allie and one Kitty

Thanks for your invite to visit you when we are out traveling.  I'll sure keep that in mind.  So far we haven't done any riding this year, but are planning a trip in March, weather permitting.

mine too, and also supposed to be a boy.  how can they tell so soon.  I won't be sewing any baby stuff until after the baby is here, just me, but I wait.  there will be plenty to sew once the baby arrives.

Paula,

Maryam posted the link on the swap page.  I am glad I have had too much tech problems today so that was a life saver.

Hi Paula,

I can't find the picture of your bird in the drywall. If you could email me a copy and the story that went with it, I'd be happy to put it on my site. Any and all bird pix and stories would be welcome!

Thanks,

Charlie

Paula--you addressed the "personal stuff on this site" question so well--I feel the same way about my friends here.  They aren't "internet friends"--they are friends.   Period.  The cool thing for me is that I understand my son better now--I used to worry about his spending too much time with internet vs. "real" friends.  Now that i understand his perspective, I'm not only happy that he has friends all over the world who genuinely care about him, but I'm also finding this shared experience creating new common ground between the two of us.  He asks about my friends here, and I ask about his friends on his game forum.  Plus--he and his sister think it makes me a cool mom and tech savvy.  Little do they know.....:)

FLYING GEESE -quick and easy method-with these instructions you make four sets of flying geese with five squares. There is no fabric waste with this method. Cut (1) square the size of the finished width (the long side of the flying geese unit) you want the unit to be PLUS 1 1/4". Cut (4) squares the size of the finished height (the short side of the flying geese unit) you want the unit to be PLUS 7/8".

***THE PHOTOS SHOWN show measurements used for the flying geese units in the Southern Stars quilt. Be sure to use the calculations above for other sizes of flying geese.
***For the Southern Stars quilt you will cut one square 4 3/4" and four squares 2 5/8"

Draw diagonal lines on the back of the four small squares.
Lay two of the small squares on opposite corners of the larger block with the drawn lines meeting. The two small squares will overlap a little. Sew 1/4" on either side of the center drawn line (I like to draw those two sewing lines so I know the 1/4" is accurate).
Cut along center cutting line.
Press two small triangles away from larger triangle.
Place the third smaller square and fourth smaller square on the corner of the larger triangles that were formed. Sew 1/4" on either side of the center line.
Cut along the center cutting line and press the smaller triangle away from the larger triangle.
You should end up with four flying geese units that only need the tails cut off with little to no trimming.

For All Those Original Members...

Yes, I am still alive.  Just wanted to let all those older members who remember my college craziness know that I am finished.  I had to postpone graduation until this fall instead of the summer but I just got the email confirming my final portfolio project passed.  So, I guess I have officially earned my Masters Degree in Library Science.  I still need to have that final transcript saying it and take a state based exam to get it added to my Texas teaching certificate, which I will do in the…

I Can Breathe Again

Posted on August 18, 2011 at 8:33am 13 Comments

Technically, I have taken all the classes I need to for my masters degree.  Unfortunately, there was no graduating for me this summer as I had planned due to mental exhaustion and an ailing 85 year old mom.  I really admire and feel for all you ladies that have committed to taking care of a parent full time. 

Back to school.  I postponed my graduation until this fall because the summer load proved to be literally a LOAD.  I am required to put together a virtual portfolio as the final…

Husqvarna SE Embroidery Design Question with 4D

Posted on April 8, 2011 at 10:45pm 4 Comments

Hoping to get some help from someone proficient with changing a picture into an embroidery design using Husqvarna 4D software on my SE machine.

I haven't played with it in so long I don't know what I am missing.  I follow the book directions but when I change the picture to embroidery the stitching is not complete in places.

This doesn't give you much information but I am hoping for at least one person out there who can guide me a little through this.  Didn't want to bore…

Persistant Little Birds

Now here's a story.  Last Sunday I was out in the new house cleaning up for the floor to start Monday.  This pair of wrens would not stay out of the house and I had to constantly shoo them out a door.  Eventually I discovered they were…
