I'm baaaack

What a wild couple of months! I checked in when I could but that wasn't often. I was held captive by a two year old for over a month. What a cutie! I didn't try to escape.

When I finally returned home, it was just in time for quilt retreat. Eight hours after returning from retreat, my BFF and I headed to Paducah--her quilt was in the show. We always said we'd go together if such a thing should happen. Very exciting and lots of amazing quilts.

Three days after I returned home, I…

Clemson U quilt top

 

I don't know why it's so hard to get a good picture of this quilt.  Maybe it's the colors?  Anyway, here is the completed top.  It's the size of my full size bed with just a little overhang, 60"X80".  I've set it aside for the time being and had to complete something of mine.  A UFO started over 2…

What to do with left over sock yarn?

Back in October 2015 Peggy posted a photo of a Busy Bee Throw that she was working on and it gave me the bright idea of how to use up all the left over sock yarn I’ve been hoarding for the last 10 years or so.  As I may have mentioned – I knit socks.  A lot of socks.  So I have dozens and dozens of little balls of left over yarn. Waste not, want not, says I. Over the years I have used some of the little left overs and made socks that poor, long suffering DH has worn – his socks of many…

Shared sadness...

Yesterday, was a very sad day for our family. My brother passed away after a brief illness. Jim was the brother that many of you generously sent Christmas cards to him and his housemates. Jim was diagnosed with stage 3 dementia in Feb. He fell and hit his head which cause a massive stroke. We are thankful that he did not have to live with dementia long...

Thank you again for all the cards that were sent to the "boys". It certainly made a difference in their lives. My brother was able…

High Fiber—Farewells and Goodbyes

We said goodbye to the Knitting Community yesterday. And my page:

I have such fond memories of the years on the Knitting Community and special friends, some of whom I have no way of communicating with again (Susan, Marty, Judith), as well as some I'm still in touch with even daily.

Do you all remember those old ladies who always said.....

In my day we wouldn't be       (fill in the blank)        ?   Well I think I have turned in to one of them.  For the life of me I can't figure out why in the world parents would allow their teenage daughters to attend a high school prom wearing a lot of the dresses you see today.  My goodness.  My dad would have grounded me for a month if I had even tried to leave the house wearing some of those dresses.  I know times have changed, but this is…

The Serape Quilt

About a year ago I responded to a call for quilt patterns in recognition of Cinco De Mayo.  This is the throw I designed:

The pattern can be found in the April 2016 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine …

For All the Newbies...let's start some chatter about our best advice...

I like to interview my fabric before selecting which ones to use. I do a rough layout and switch different swatches or scraps then take a photo in the light where the finished project may be. This is a Christmas bed runner I'm in the process of deciding. I'm not happy with the first ball...the accent fabrics do not…

Seeing Purple...and Orange

No, not talking about Prince, although he's been the topic of discussion these days. Strange how people scurry out of the woodwork to capitalize when tragedy strikes...family or otherwise. 

Anyway, I have once again (somehow) subjected myself to help out (a cousin-in-law this time) with making her daughter a quilt.  I say help, but yes, I am making the entire thing start to finish.  The mom wants to surprise her for her graduation this year from Clemson U.  with this "tail gating…

Quilts for Kids need

This morning I received an e-mail from Quilts for Kids saying they just mailed out the last boy quilt and are in need of more with boy themes.  If this is something you would like to help with or learn more about, here is the web site:

I need mental help

I knew that title would grab your attention. hee hee.  But with some of the things I put up with that title might not be too far off.

Bud is back to the nursing home.  He went into the hospital with double pneumonia.  After her recovered they took him back to Marshall's in Machias for long term care.  This is his 3rd trip over there.  He is still up to his old phone calling and leaving numerous messages.  I went to a public supper Friday night and then stopped in to visit a neighbor…

High Fiber—Spinning in the RAK

We had a spin-in this past week in The Frog Prince and his Knitting Community Orphans.

That was the first bobbin. I’m close to finishing the second one. I’ll try…

Better late......

I see that my last posting was in February so obviously I haven’t been contributing as regularly as I had planned at the beginning of the year.  However, here’s a bit more ‘catching up’.

This past Saturday our quilting group (now named The Charm Pack) got together for our monthly Quilt ‘til you Wilt at our meeting room at the local university satellite campus. The name came as a result of us being asked to purchase insurance to protect the university from liability should one of us…

Last word on those darn turtles

Finally got that paper-pieced turtle quilt set off to my sister in law.  She loved it, thought it was so cute.  I really wish I could post a photo, I've tried everything I can think of.  My Vivitar digital camera software just isn't going to cooperate.  Anyway, if any of you have gone to Java House quilts and seen the original pattern, you'll have a pretty good idea what it looks like.  Only real difference is the fact that I used a whole strip of a cute cartoon turtle print for the outer…

Birthday gift...

My granddaughter is turning 5 in a few weeks, and has always had a thing for mermaids.  I have a feeling she will love snuggling down into this mermaid bag with one of her dolls.…
