I'm a long arm quilter and loving it. I am married to my best friend. He is the best husband ever. I could not imagine what my life would be like without him. I have been an Air Force mom for almost 10 years now and very proud of my daughter and her AF husband. I have 1 son and 2 daughters, all wonderful kids. I have 3 beautiful grand children. I think being a grandma is the best thing ever, yes even better than quilting.

Connecting Threads kit

Posted on May 1, 2009 at 8:05am 5 Comments

Wow, I haven't posted here in a good while. Guess I have been busy, doing what? I have no clue. I feel like I got much done this week at all as far as sewing goes anyway.

I made this cute little quilt from a kit I purchased from CT. and yes I had left overs again so I used the little HST to make this other little quilt. The other squares are left overs from the backing of the first quilt. Of course I still need to quilt both of them. They were both to easy, beginner kits I think. Oh well… Continue

CT kit and a little make up bag.

Today was a jammie day. I never got dressed today. I didn't have to go anywhere, I didn't have anyone coming by to drop off a quilt or pick up a quilt so why get dressed, lol.

I made this cute little wall hanging/table topper using a kit I purchased from CT. So easy and fun. I still need to quilt it but I couldn't wait to share with you.... so after I quilt it I will share it again.



And look I had plenty of fabric left over to make… Continue

Bags

Posted on April 17, 2009 at 7:23am 5 Comments

Just thought I would share with you a couple of bags I made using towels. The sunflower one is a kitchen towel and the little purple one is a little bath hand towel. I thought there were kind of cute and easy to make so I gave it a try. I couldn't really find the cute little kitchen towels I wanted so I used this sunflower one. I am on the look now for cute kitchen towels. Thanks for looking. I love CT! I think I will start on a kit today that I purchased from CT.…

Ok I'm not so sure this will work or not..... I still can't figure out how to add a link, so lets see if this works for me now. If it does it is the link for the little pin cushions.

Pin Cushions

Hope everyone is having a good week. I just wanted to share these little pin cushions I made last night. The small one is made from a 2 liter pop bottle cap and the other 2 are caps from medicine bottles.

These are fun and easy to make. It's kind of hard coming up with the caps when you don't really drink many soda's, I had one soda cap so I searched the house for the other 2 caps from the meds.…

Hi Vera, i haven't been on here in forever...just found your comment...from April! And it's December! FYI fabric dyeing is wonderful...and you may or may not enjoy it. I personally find it inspiring to create my own cloth. Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

How are you , Friend?
I have good days & bad days, guess that goes with the territory. I have learned that I must accept what has been dealt to me , straighten my shoulders, & walk the pathway I have been given. It is not easy but I am trying.
Thank you for asking!
I see you are still doing those wonderful quilting jobs! I do so admire your talents!
I am piecing again, hand quilting Sunbonnet Sue for the G-Granddaughter. I was working on that when life suddenly changed. I need to finish her quilt.
(((Hugs)))

Hello Vera,Its been a while sense Ive chatted on line , but I did add the Quilt I told you I was asked to make.I got it done and we decided to enter it in the county fair and it won a blue ribbon.I was shocked and so happy at the same time it was the best day , I also had a booth ,only sold one quilt at the fair and one at the city celebration. Selling is not easy where I live because of the eco. all but a couple of the coal mines are still operating and that is our main high paying jobs around here. i know its that way just about every where . But I still had a really good time . If you get a min check out my quilt. Happy Quilting debbie

Hi Vera, you only quilted the QOV quilt, how beautiful you did, I can do some of my own machine quilting too. Honestly not meaning to out do you it just happened, but last year in 2008 I finished 8 for the QOV, the wounded military are so deserving. Bless you!

Hi Vera, Thanks again for the link to make the little fabric basket. If you look at my pictures you'll see that I got one done! They are so cute, and go together quick and easy. I can see myself making them as gifts for friends at Christmas. Mary
