My quilt top is finally done. I even managed to get a blue border around the outside. Once quilted I will bind it with the darker material. Yes it's true I almost didn't do this quilt. When I first tried it, the piecing was wrong, the templates weren't working for me, nothing seemed to go right with this one. I was sooo frustrated with this quilt that I emailed BJ about my frustrations.
I went back to my EQ7 program and redid the blocks and gave it a whirl. I'm glad I did. I…Continue

The JAABA is an applique tool that I designed to help those that want to learn the art of needle turn applique.
For most quilters when you mention Applique they treat it as if it is a 4 letter word that should not be mentioned. My tool helps solve this problem.
The problem being frustration leading to more 4 letter words.
When I started quilting I wanted to know everything there was to know about quilting. So applique finally came up. The funny thing is I did not take an…Continue

Well, it's winter time, and winter without snow is like, summer without humidity. So the snow comes down and causes havoc. But it's also good - freezes out all the germs in the air, and now I can breathe again. So in celebration of snow days, I finally finished a blue work embroidery ...Snow Happens...Continue
Things sure have been crazy since our move to Florida. Lots of events have happened that I wish could be changed, but, alas, cannot. Such as the death of my dear nephew at too early an age and the news that my dad is close to ending his battle with Alzheimer's. While I morn the loss of the nephew and my dad's loss of memory, I can celebrate the life they have lived and am thankful for the way they have touched my life.
For the most part, in general, life is good. We are enjoying the…Continue

I've been finishing up the border on the previously posted quilt top and hopefully, hopefully, if there aren't any interuptions tonight I will get it finished. But What I was wondering is on the borders: Ever look at the quilt on the bed and wonder why we put a border on all four sides? I've done it for years 'cause thats what looks good in the pictures and made up in the instructions from all the patterns I've done over the years. My problem is, why put a border across the top of the…Continue
Just wanted to share with you all a video clip of my dear Husband that aired on our local television station.
It was a early (and cold!) Saturday morning when we made our trek to the station for this live interview.
Hope you enjoy. And if you are so inclined, please visit our website…Continue
It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it.
That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…Continue

Let me start this off by saying that when I get around snowmen I feel like the littlest girl on Despicable Me does about Unicorns. “It’s so FLUFFY I’m gonna die!” That is totally how I feel about Snowmen!
Click on the picture to hear her say it, it's too funny!
I can’t let a season go without doing a few projects involving snowmen. I have hit and all-time high bar this year since I did end up getting a…Continue

Riley loves Mario...hubby had knee surgery last year and found Mario pj as a joke! So, the leg got…Continue
Ok, remember the Roseville novels I started writing here on Connecting Threads a couple of years ago that were very popular?

Has been a while since I posted anything; not that I would have anything interesting anyway. Had a great Thanksgiving with 15 at our home; no mishaps as some of you have had.
Sunday after Thanksgiving we left for Branson, Mo with my sis and her husband. Attended one of those meetings where they try to convince you to purchase a timeshare which they said was not a timeshare; guess they do not consider it a timeshare as you actually receive a deed. Sure seemed like a timeshare to…Continue
I am really starting to feel better. My lungs feel better... and this year I am so far behind in decorating my home. Especially with me getting ill after Thanksgiving....BUT!!!! For the first time since my DH and I have been together in these 8 years... he will be arriving home late today! He will be helping me decorate the house. I just can't help myself, I find that I am feeling like I did when I went on our first date. I am really…Continue
Ok, who is planning to get some of their holiday baking done this weekend? What a great time to do it with all the snow and ice falling? There is nothing better than a warm kitchen, candles burning, carols playing and surrounding yourself with cookies!
Today I am featuring Large Batch Cookie Baking on my blog! If you bake all three recipes I have featured, you will have close to 500 cookies by the end of the day! Now, there you go! If your quilt guild's holiday party is coming up,…Continue
It's no wonder, I am not getting any quilting done. My BFFs are distracting me! They decided, it was a gorgeous day (55), we needed to do some shopping and go to lunch. We hit a few tiny gift shops that made you want to buy all the baby clothes( we don't have babies)! Now, we don't think we are loud...but, the shop keepers kept saying, could you shop here all day...your contagious chatter makes other customers want to stay longer. We went into Talbots, only because it was 50% off. I was…Continue
