I've known this child since she was born and have watched her grow up to be a young lady. We all so desperately want her to come home safe!
If you see her or hear anything…Continue
Quilting put into hiatus for now, too hot in my sewing room. I do have an air conditioner in there and can turn it on, but...if I decide to cut fabrics, I have to turn on the bright light so I can see what I'm cutting, then I have to turn on the 1700-watt iron so I can press the pieces, then turn on the Janome Horizon to start sewing, along with my Nook to listen to music. I then have everything running and voila! a short-circuit on the entire half of the…
I just finished this baby quilt for a great-niece born June 27th. I loved the polka dot fabric. Apparently I was feeling extravagant at the time and bought a whole half yard of it. Since I was already blowing my wad, I picked out FQs to match. Yes, the quilt shop owner was…Continue
Ah, the call of the sea!
We should be ending up our visit in Finland and getting ready to return home right about now. Internet is unpredictable on our travels, so instead of my usual fiber fun I've written this blog post ahead of time about the three years we…

Just two weeks ago Mom got to spend the day celebrating her sister's 100th birthday. Yesterday morning she had another celebration ... she got to go to her eternal home! I'll greatly miss her. She's been a huge part of my life these past 7 years especially as caregiver to her. Thank you for your prayers and support -- you have all helped me and encouraged me over the years. …Continue
Things are looking up a bit. I set the moving date for this weekend but we are suppose to get heavy rains, so have pushed it to next weekend. I bought a new table and chairs, and have taken a lot of things over and got them in their places. I made and hung my sewing room curtains. My sewing cabinets are almost done and will be delivered soon. It's beginning to look like home. Bud and I got a laugh this week. We went out and got a couple of lobster rolls and decided to eat our first…Continue
I would give anything to be able to spend a day in the sewing room. We started putting in a new septic system three weeks ago at the lake house. Now, there are many rules when you live by water. We hired an engineer and went through the process with the town board. Everything was on schedule until the health inspector showed up and he realized our contractor had fired him several years ago. They have nit picked this project until I'm about to scream. We even had to redo our gutters to the…Continue
I am no longer working and I am back in school working on my art degree
I am in my third quarter and I am excited about a project about an 8 page mini magazine

" R.V. Quilting? " it's a play on the way RV sounds phonetically "are we"
I will keep you posted on the progress
A time to be born and a time to...dye. At my place, summer is a good time to dye using the method I like best. The sun-tea method with Kool-Aid and food coloring.
I love to watch movies on my tablet as I sew. It really helps keep me focused.
To see more hop…Continue
What fun. I almost finished one star today. Maybe I can post a photo tomorrow. Tonight fingers are sore. How many can I make in a week? Can't wait for next week already.
Quilters Newsletter will be having a new block every Tuesday, starting last week. It is paper pieced Christmas Tree. Looks like fun. Still want to do the one they offered a few years back and noticed the block did come up under Christmas Surprise.
I hope everyone had a safe 4th. I did get lots of sewing done.
