August 21 - Another eventful week

Welcome to another Spirit Led week.  I hope last week went well for all.  If not, hopefully the Spirit was with you.

Last week my husband asked me to make him a doctor appointment.  He has been having trouble with his prostate for almost 2 years and would not let me get him to the doctor.  So I called our doctor that we have used for 20 + years.  They would not take him!  Since we have not been to him in over 3 years, my husband would be considered as a 'new' patient.  The…

High Fiber—No Rest for the Wicked...or the Weary

Common Threads met at Carol's.

She had this great quilt top finished. It was made from a pack of 19th Century Reproduction fabrics from a fabric/fiber museum, which has since closed. I was…

August? Really? What happened to April ?

Wow! I have been staring at my calendar this morning--August? Really? and the 16th? Well, I am behind the times, in a big way.

What have I been doing? gardening, driving back and forth to Minnesota and South Dakota. Quilt Wyoming in Gillette, Wyoming. Green Bay, WI. I feel like all I have been focused on is getting the laundry done and the lawn mowed before packing again and heading off.

Of course, along the way, I have managed to acquire more UFO's. Unbound and rebound a…

August 14 - Time for a reset

I hope you had a wonderful Spirit Led week.

Due to unforeseen events, I was not able to get to the studio to clean up.

One event was daily picking up grandson from morning band practice and returning him in the evening for another round.  That would not have been bad, but in between, I was doing research on auto and home insurance companies.  It seems that my current one seems to 'lose' the payments sent in.  I sent my vehicle insurance in via bank pay and they…

One of those days!

This has been one of those days when I think I should have just stayed in bed.  About 10 days ago we decided to buy a 2017 Kia Sportage.  It is candy apple red so pretty easy to see right?!  Well my husband was sitting in a valet line at University Hospital in Columbia MO waiting to have them park it as the garage was full.  I had to be there for a CT scan on my heart this morning.  This man driving a shuttle bus for a local retirement home decides he can't wait for Larry to be able to move…

August 7 - Organizing time

Praying you had a Spirit Led week.

As I am growing stronger and health is improving, I am able to do more.

School will be starting back soon in the area.   Though we only have one grandchild in school at this time, he is fun to keep up with.  His dad has him every other week.  So since we are local, Seth is able to come visit us after his morning band practice.  (Sean lives about 10 miles out of town)  That way his dad does not need to worry about him.  He has a…

High Fiber—Same Old, Same Old

Unlike at Lake Wobegon, it was not a quiet week at our place. Monday was spent washing all the sheets, towels and quilts we use in the trailer and giving it a good cleaning. Tuesday I CO another doll cardigan as we took the trailer back to its resting place.…

Been away for a long time

Its been a long time since I posted. I came across my password and sign in while doing some cleaning. I really like being back on here looking at all the pretty things.

I lost my paternal grandma in March of 2014 at the age of 93. She is the one who taught me to sew and quilt.

I have been making quilts still and i will try to post a few in the coming days.

Glad to be back.

July 31 - Catching up

The Spirit Led my life again this week.  

Though I did not do any crafting, I was able to catch up on a lot of domestic needs that have been neglected this past month.  I was even able to spend a little time outside on yard work.  The temperature has been oppressive of late.  Temps hitting near 100 and heat index from 105 to 110.  You do not spend much time outside.  This week will be more conducive to working outside.  

I also felt well and strong enough to…

High Fiber—Extreme Family Team-Building

Camping trips to the Uintas are usually low-drama, because we don't have to travel far from our home to reach beautiful campgrounds close to lakes for swimming and trails for hiking. This adventure was a little different.…

Just checking in

Hello my quilting friends.  It's been awhile since I posted so thought I would stop by and say hello.  I have been busy today rearranging my closets to make room for a three drawer plastic storage unit that was given to me.  The lady who has gifted me with her fabric stash gave me this unit. I will put it to good use. It's 24 wide and 25 high. Should hold a fair amount of fabric.  With all the stuff in the closet out in the middle of the floor my sewing room looks like a bomb hit…

July 24 - Continuing to mend

I had a blessed Spirit Led week, I hope you did also.

My husband and I rode with a son and his family to the Dallas Metroplex for the birthday party.

We had a great time.  Baby Daniel was one busy little boy, with lots of big and little people to play with.  

They had a cook out with kabobs and grilled chicken.  There were all types of fresh fruit like pineapple, and kiwi and fresh melons.  

After eating was going to be present time, but the babies…

Two more finished for 2017.

It's been a busy year, mostly taken up with handquilting my Caswell reproduction.  The next in line was my Carrie's Garden, named for a special friend of mine. . This one, though done by hand with needleturn applique and English Paper Piecing, is to be used as a tablecloth so is machine quilted.  …

July 17 - Under the Weather

I hope all have had some special Spirit Led days.  

It started with a bad summer cold, but soon moved into a sever case of bronchitis.  I am on the mend now.  But I will be requesting prayers for more healing.  God is good and faithful.  He is my strength.  

Through I have battled to sew, I was always too tired to concentrate.  I am back now though.  Yesterday I was able to make a toddler bib for my grandson that will be turning 1 next Saturday.  The bib is…
