The bird is in his new home

Well Ladies you will be so proud of me. I didn't flood the parking lot in Bangor with tears when I transferred my beloved parrot from my car to his new Mommy's car.  The lady is lovely and told me that before her mother died she said,  "I know you have longed to build a bird sanctuary and I'm going to give you the money to do it."  Her mother lived to see the finish sanctuary and died knowing her daughters passion was being fulfilled. 

I do miss him and his antics but know I made a…

Back home from our Holiday

And what a good feeling that is! 

Holidays can be a wonderful thing – an opportunity to relax and recharge.  But there’s something about getting back home, back into familiar routines that can be every bit as relaxing. Especially when the holiday turned into an endurance test!  And oh, what a test it was.

The only ones relaxing during the last few days of this holiday were the dogs! …

High Fiber—Nesting for Winter, Part II

The quilt for Habitat for Humanity's Overall Ball fundraiser is coming along. I finished putting the blocks together with sashing, corner stones and a border.







This involved a consult with Janet and another one with Julie, as we were trying to get by with fabrics on hand. I was scrambling, but managed…

Plum Jam

Since I don't have a quilt to show, I thought I'd share my day's work yesterday.  My 2 youngest sons and I picked plums from our loaded plum tree last weekend.  After giving away as many of those gems as we could, I still had a bounty of fruit.  I loaded up on sugar, pectin and 4 1/2 cup containers and ended up with this.  I now have Christmas gifts for co-workers and neighbors!  I'll be glad in December that I spent the time doing this!…

Cootie Catcher

I finished this today and my husband said,  "Oh! You made a cootie catcher!" And so that is its name.....

Mixed feelings

On Tues. I will be going to Bangor to meet up with a lady who runs a parrot sanctuary.  We have decided it is time to find a new home for our Yellow Naped Amazon.  He is 21 years old and will no doubt live at least another 20 or more. He has been with us for 19 years, so parting with him is going to be really hard.  But with our age and recent health issues we made this decision for the sake of the bird to put him in a place we knew would be safe and he would be well taken care of.  So Tues.…

Zig zag quilt for my grandson Billy

My grandson Billy is going to be 13 on the 18th and this is the quilt I made for him.  I called it "Billy's Path in Life" as he is very artistic and marches to the beat of his own drummer!  I doubt he will ever take a straight path ever in his life.  LOL   It will hang in my guild's quilt show in 2 weeks…

Everything Under the Sun

I guessed it would take about 2 weeks to get this one done. I was 2 days over! 

I'm not sure this is my best creation, but it falls into the interesting category anyway. 

Here's the blogpost: Everything Under the Sun with the process and details.…

Quilt Show Registration Information Request

I am Judy Cogswell (long time member of QWU). I work with the Eureka Montana Quilt Show Committee basically with their advertising. Our show is always the first Saturday in August. This year was a great success, we had about 600 quilts on display and for sale. Two years ago our show administrators decided to retire and we were faced with not having a show. Fortunately the local businesses decided to take charge and started the show with a…

Three quilts finished in one month!

Thanks to finding a LAQ, I finished a quilt that had been on a shelf waiting to be quilted for 3 years, plus 2 others that I made in the past year.  I love all 3 of them!  Two are made entirely with CT fabric lines, and the scrap quilt has a good majority of CT fabric as well.  I posted about them all in my blog.  Here's a peek at 2 of them.  I now have NO unfinished quilt tops!  I don't even have a new one started!  Gasp!  No…

Fun times and a wintry forecast

I had a fabulous time in North Carolina with the Writer's Police Academy. It's so fun to hang with others (like quilters) who share a common interest and language. We learned lots from the instructors but also from just chatting with other mystery writers. Oddly, normal people are a bit put off by some of our conversations.

Got back to Wyoming this morning. It's 90 degrees. Possibility of snow on Wednesday. Shazbot.

The "Body Quilt" sold for almost 500 dollars--all for charity.…

High Fiber—Nesting for Winter

Why is my yarn stash in the guest room?





This isn't even all of it. Not all of the yarn is in view. I would need a wide-angle lens to get it all in.

Back to the question: A few months ago we discovered we had moths, originating in our Navajo rugs in the storeroom. While I was sad about the rug…
