It's NOT too late my friends!

I saw this article on a new-to-me website this morning and it really touched me.  There was more to the article but I shortened it to make it more viable to…

So what do you girls know about Sergers?  I am thinking about buying one but not knowing anything about them...why do you like them? what kind? and what kind not to buy...What would be the reason to buy one that I cannot do on my sewing machine,,,,,,and why would I buy another machine? Any help would be more than appreciated.

High Fiber—Love and Generosity

Wow! What a week! I always have to start with a photo, so here's Kay's rug:

She based this on a photo she took while on a cruise with her late husband. He helped her with suggestions and was a major contributor to keeping her interested in the project. It has been languishing since he passed away, but…

Our heat wave is over

Our heat wave is over and we’re back to overcast skies and moderate temperatures.  We even had what can only be described as a couple of torrential downpours. The woods were tinder dry and forest fires are an ever present worry when the weather is like that, so no one is complaining. But the weather change brought fierce winds.  Needless to say, my hanging baskets suffered considerable damage, and the rain pounded my carrots flat.  I checked this morning and they seem to have recovered…

Finished Weaver Fever quilt top!

I added the borders today (first time making mitered borders), and I'm really happy with the finished product.  I didn't get a very clear photo of the top, but I was in a hurry to sew the backing.  I will get a better picture when I take it out to get it ready to go to the LAQ!…

Missing a few inches

I am about half way thru my quilt as you go quilt. Looking at it I think I am missing about 3 inches on each side! I am piecing the top pieces onto the batting and back material and I don't think I have enough for my pieces to fit. AND I missed the middle! Drat! I measured so carefully and marked the middle but things are a little lopsided. Good grief Charlie Brown. I told my DH the next time I measure he is going to have to help me. Then I can blame him instead of me. Hee hee. Well I think…

"Oh by the way, Mom"

I'm trying to post....again.  I'm having quite a time getting the picture and entry to go together!

I wanted to share the story about a quilt I finished a couple of days ago.  My son, Cory is out wildland firefighting.  The day before he left, he was telling me about his recent trip to Idaho with his buddy Kevin and Kevin's fiance, Ellie.  They were attending a wedding of another college friend, Alison.  Cory had a wedding gift quilt for Alison in tow.  He threw it in the…

    Just love QWU, a place to hang out talk about quilts, sewing machines, ideas, and our grandkids.  Also where we can share, let our hair down or tear it out among friends, right?  Oh, I'm so glad you agree.

    Because you are just not going to believe this!  We headed up to Idaho in early April.  This was to be the year we remodel the west end of the house.  I anticipated lots of dirt and dust flying around while things got torn down and put back together.  So no quilt projects…

Fun times

Spent a little time sewing with this little girl today.  I'd forgotten how much fun she is to sew with.  I need to use her more, but for some reason I don't like winding bobbins.  I think the magic bobbin winding fairy should come in the night and fill them all for me.  That way I could get right to the fun stuff - the actual sewing!  Crazy, right?  (or lazy, take your pick...)  …

Computer problem

Just letting you know I'm having more computer problems so if you don't hear from me you will know why. I have no email at all.  I have to get everywhere through the administrator.  It will be going out to my computer man as soon as he gets a chance to work on it.  He is a friend of mine not in the business so it may take awhile for him to get it fixed.  Until he take it to his house I will check in when I can.

Our new ‘wilt’ location

Saturday, in the midst of what is to us, a heat wave, the thermometer topped out at 32 Celsius (89.6 F) and we had our first Quilt ‘til you wilt in our new location.  And what a treat it was!  The room has so much space - tables and chairs - for about 18 people (and their machines), has great lighting, lots and lots of electrical outlets, access to a small kitchen with microwave, fridge, a nice big sink, washrooms very close by and is air conditioned!  What more could we ask?  We only had a…

High Fiber—Baby Storms the Bastille..and Arrives Early!

The stork decided that Johan Aro Stuart needed to try out his BSJ and his Horse Baby Quilt sooner than scheduled. He arrived Saturday night, four weeks early.

Even though little Johan is pre-term, he is still a good size, 6 lbs 6 oz and 18" long. Other than some breathing problems…
