About Me
Happily married for 37 yrs, we have 4 married daughters and 4 grand-sons and 1 grand-daughter. We are expecting a grand-daughter 9/4 and another grand-baby March of 2010. That will make 7 grand-children for us and we couldn't be happier. I have much work to do with these babies coming up plus the holidays will soon be here. Whew....I need to catch my breath just thinking about it! I"v been retired (thank God) since 05 and am loving every minute of it. After our last daughter got married I took one of the BR and made it my Sewing Room and I love it. My husband made my design wall and put laminate flooring in there so my chair has no problem rolling around. I love the flooring, I can see pins and things I drop on the floor and if I drop pieces of fabric or thread all I do is sweep it up, SEW EASY! I appreciate all my husband did to make that room special for me. Most of my furniture in there is from IKEA and I love their stuff, it is so practical and inexpensive. I also love to knit and usually do that while watching TV. This new technology on the computer with blogs and all the great ways one can share and communicate with one another is pretty amazing. It almost takes as much time as making a quilt ha.....ha.
I hope to make new friends and keep in the loop of what other quilters are doing. I've been lucky enough to visit Connecting Threads in Wa. and have ordered many things from them online. Thanks for a great little magazine that keeps me motivated and hungry for more!
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, machine quilting, general sewing, knitting, other
My pets are awesome!

MY TRIP TO COSTA RICA WITH MY FEATHERWEIGHT

Posted on September 20, 2010 at 1:30pm 13 Comments

Well here we are, my granddaughter Ella and I sewing away in Costa Rica. Making a little quilt for her dolls was a very special time for both of us. Of course I'm hoping the quilting bug bit her and she'll want to do this again with her Nana hahahah. We also made some pillow cases for her and and my grandson Judah and it was an amazing time and well worth hauling that Featherweight all the way there and back. Of course going through Customs and having to recheck luggage and changing flights… Continue

Going to Sister's Oregon this Fri

Posted on July 5, 2010 at 8:58pm 6 Comments

Our Guild had a Little Quilt Sale at one of the near by parks on the 4th of July and it was a success. Ladies from our guild volunteered to make quilts and we had a silent auction on all the ones we got. It was over 100 degrees and that wiped me out as I was there from 8am-4pm. I'm telling you I was exhausted by the time I got home. We had lots of ladies helping us out and sold lots of tickets for our opportunity quilt which we will have a drawing for in Sept. We raised over $1,000 and sold… Continue

Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson Seminar

Posted on June 27, 2010 at 11:00pm 5 Comments

Went to a Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson Seminar Thurs-Sat in Rocklin, Ca and it was awesome! Wow so much info, my brain couldn't soak it up fast enough. Libby Lehman was also there and she was great, funny and an awesome teacher. Just a bundle of information and tips. I must say they were all fantastic and I throughly enjoyed the seminar. Ricky is the most amazing music artist and gave a small concert one night which was very special. Not only is he a wonderful quilter but also a… Continue

Looking forward to 2010

Posted on December 16, 2009 at 4:42pm 7 Comments

Looking forward to another New Year and hoping that it will be more productive than this year. I wanted to make a quilt a month, which I think is doable but didn't even come close. Made a few things but just couldn't get motivated this year. I'm not giving up I will try again and hope this year will be much more productive. I have friends who work full time and can put some quilts out without any problem. There is no excuse for me, I'm retired and it's just my husband and I and our two little… Continue

Morning Rosalie and thanks for stopping by my site to comment! My mother (who lives with me) has a Viking Diamond and a Topaz embroidery machine...she gave me her Singer Futura 350 when she bought those! Always a bridesmaid...lol...she does a lot of the large embroideries for some of my quilts. For small things I really like the Futura and they have a lovely group on Yahoo Groups that are VERY helpful with any questions. I could never afford the Viking Embroidery machines...besides, I'm a quilter at heart. Have a great day!

Hi Rosalie, the blocks are 6". The idea came from the Elm Creek Book, "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. I thought you are a part of the Darlene's Slacker's. Go to that forum and check out the other SBS quilts. We are in Arkansas and yes, it gets hot here. Now it is 90 degrees outside but you can hang meat inside our house. DH got the air on that most of the time I got a his long sleeve shirt on and a pair of socks on.
Check out Hot Springs Village, AR if you are looking for a retirement home. We love it here.

Rosalie, thanks for the compliments. My SBS quilt is 77" x83". there are 90 blocks. I made up my mind at the beginning of the challenge that I will finish it by the due date which is June 15, no matter how many blocks I made.
I saw that you are from Central CA, I grow up in SF.

My scrappy variable stars quilt had Bible verse blocks in them, but you're right, they make great friendship or signature quilts. Thanks for all your nice comments. I hope to finish more projects so I can update my pictures soon. Today I'm mowing the lawn. :(

My wholecloth is hand quilted. I am a terrible short-arm machine quilter. I like the hand work. I'd like to have a longarm machine, but they are way out of my price range and I don't really have space for one, unless I'd put it in the barn... :0)

The calendar mini quilts were from the Nancy's Notions web site. When I purchased them, they were in a kit, but I think now she has them in a book with twice as many patterns so you can choose which pattern you'd like for each month.

Great quilts Rosalie! I've enjoyed browsing through your photo album and seeing your many projects. I didn't get much quilting accomplished in 2009, but hope to remedy that in 2010. I am taking a break from my home-based transcription job for the summer, so that has freed up more quilting time. I love the flag quilt and it was actually the backing fabric that caught my eye and drew me to your page. Happy quilting! Blessings to you. PQ
