About Me
I have been piecing now for about 3 years. The bug got me when I retired and needed something to occupy my time. Now I wonder where all my time goes. I am Vice President of a 1 year old guild and I have never enjoyed life more. I wonder why I waited so long to do this.

I spend quite a bit of time in my sewing room. About 8 hrs a day. I usually have to tear myself away from my quilting.

I do occasionally teach quilt lessons at a local Sew and Vac Shop in Memphis. I purchase all my machines there and have a special bond with them.

My husband is retired and Shoots competition rifles. That sport keeps him busy as well. While he's at the club, I'm upstairs sewing. We do occasionally participate in each others hobbies and enjoy doing so.

I have a pekingese we call Bear. His real name is Bai Ghee Shung "North Polar Bear." He spends a lot of time in my sewing room with me and some times gathers scraps on the floor and piles them at stair well landing.

Life is great and I am taking advantage of it all.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, machine quilting, embroidery
My pets are awesome!
Bai Gee Shung a Peekinese 4 years old.

Pin cushions update

I took my pincushions to the Officers meeting Wed. They decided we would need 24 more. I will be busy for another little while. But they are so fun to make I don't mind. Hope you have all tried them.

I decided to take a break from quilting this weekend. I found the cutes pattern for a pin cushion on line and I have been making them like crazy. I have about 30 of them completed and about 10 more to go. Our guild is having a mini retreat in the fall and I thought they would be great little happy gifts for everyone. I'll post some of them on my page tomorrow. So easy and fun to make. I will have to get back to my Thimbleberries Lodge quilt as soon as I finish these last 10. Hope everyone had a… Continue

Pam Bono is a quilt designer and has developed a tool called the angler to aid in quilting. The brown quilt on my post is one of her designs. You can view some of her work on her web site. Her quilts look like appliqué but are pieced instead. Quite an unusual technique but many small pieces.

Hi Darleen, I did a little further search for the patterns availability and found a link where you can order the pattern for my purse. It is online at:

I hope you can enjoy making it and using it also. Gayle

I think you are probably talking about the "Manhattan Bag" that I made for my granddaughter, Felicia. TThe pattern is one I bought from the "Fat Quarter Shop" I think it is discontinued as I tried to find it for a friend from Alaska. I think it is a "Pink Sand Design".

good for you, I too have been busy quilting. Flo sewed well over the weekend, I did a crazy top of the 30's prints, I changed the needle like I was supposed to and didn't have any trouble until the one I have in the frames now. I tried the size 16 needle but put the 18 back in there but she keeps breaking the thread. I've adjusted the tension, don't know what else to do.
I'm putting together an "ice cream cone" quilt top for Isabella. Did you see my pics I put on this site.
I've made a baby quilt and it was Ole Miss bunnies. It was cute
good hearing from you

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Flora is 20 miles northwest of Jackson. It is off Hwy 49. It is a great little town.

My mother quilts. She taught my two sisters and myself how to sew and I've always sewed, cross stitched and embroidered but just recently starting quilting. I've done mostly baby quilts for the young girls at church. I made a quilt for my daughter and grandson and am working on one for my son and his wife. They live in Phoenix. Hopefully when I retire, I'll be able to quilt more. There is only one quilt shop close but we do have a Hancock's and Hobby Lobby. I get most of my material from sites on the internet.

Annie what a lovely name, I know your grannie would be proud. I'm excited for you. I pinned in a quilt this morning. I get up early and quilt before work. This gives me time in the evenings to sew. My quilt buddy Norma Jean and I went a few months ago and bought some cheater cloth, deer heads, and since she has deer hunters in her family she is giving each of the men (six of them) a deer quilt. I bought five, not a deer hunter in this Italian family. I hope to sell them. My daughter and grand daughter were here for a week, we had a ONE year birthday party, we had a baptism, they both got sick, my brother started the addition to my house for them to come live with me, and I ended up driving them back to South Carolina after I worked all day getting there at 2:45 am Saturday morning, and flying home at 4:50pm Saturday. Needless to say I was exhausted. Let alone it cost me $600 for the flight. Kinda of cut into my fabric money. Oh well....I'm still tired but I have finished three baby quilts for a women and started another for someone else. I got this cute bunny pattern for a site in Canada and she wanted it to be Ole Miss, so I bought some Ole Miss fabric at wal mart and wonder undered the bunnies. I enlarged it too big and the blocks ended up being 13 1/2 x 19, took only four. I now have enough for another one. I'm nuts sometimes. This is really cute.
Take care and happy quilting...keep in touch
Regina
