It's not Spartan Green and White...

but this is the tote I made today.. not exactly following the pattern, but close enough to make me happy :)  I really like how it turned out.  The 'star' was supposed to be a pinwheel, but I like this even better.

Since I was using scraps and leftovers from other/previous projects, I'm saying that I was doing a little Spring cleaning in my sewing room - that's my… Continue

Easter memories...

Last year, Easter Sunday, Leon and I attended the church service in the Salzburger Dom Cathedral in Austria.  Very uncertain of what to expect, we took our seats in the back pews.  Of course we understood very little of the service in German, but when the congregation sang Heilig, heilig, heilig, heilig ist der Herr!  we sang with great enthusiasm...in Afrikaans: Heilig, Heilig, Heilig, Heilig is die Heer!  The memory of this Sunday will stay with me forever!! Also the sound… Continue

Ok, I fibbed

I said that I wasn't going to be doing any more sewing/quilting until my friend returns to Scotland next month, but I decided that I'd like a new purse/tote/bag to take with me when we travel to Nashville and I've been wanting to do this one for several months now.  The little wallet to go with it was made last year- and it's outside matching the lining of the purse/tote/bag.  The pattern is Bow Tucks Tote and was designed by Penny Sturges.  ( I made the straps longer than what the pattern…

Another Q4K quilt

Finished another Q4K quilt!  Football players for a little boy.  

I also found a space/astronomy themed cheater panel at the latest guild meeting and I bought that for another Q4K quilt, when I get some time.  I'll cut it up and put some pinwheels in between the blocks  


Have a happy a Easter…

Medical checkups are looking up!

Did the 6 month medical checkups, blood tests, EKG etc. and the good news is that I can "let go"  of the BP medication. The bad news is...I've got to lose weight to get my cholesterol and glucose levels down.  You know what that means???? Exercise and eat those veggies, plain and simple. So the plan of action is (and I'm really trying to be upbeat about this)... work out at the Y (weight training and cardio 3X's and a planned physical activity, ie. a program that fits my age and ability,…

Baby Jane Update


Well its been one month since I started the journey. I think that I had finished about 15 blocks before my book arrived. I have just finished 26 blocks.

My Baby Jane is called "Related to Jane" which has a double meaning as I have a daughter Jane. The quilt will eventually go to one of my grand daughters who is of course also related to Jane.

I am not going to include the triangles but will add extra blocks  20b. x 16b. with 1" sashes Total blocks =320 I have been…

A big Thank you

Thank you so much for all the support.  I hope to be recovered from the surgery in a couple of weeks.  I have learned a lot in the last three months, that I can do what it takes.  Maybe not 100% of the time but enough to lose some weight.  I am really sore from the surgery and hope that goes away when I get the staples out.  I am looking forward to making a baby quilt as we just found out our Granddaughter is going to have another baby.  Maybe not the best decision in the world, but it will…

Just Ordered the Sunny Day Floral CT Fabric

I'm pretty excited to have just ordered CT's new Sunny Day flannel fabric.  I'm going to make a raw edge "quilt-as-you-go" block lap quilt.  Flannel quilts are SO cozy, and these fabrics are so cute.  I can't wait to get my package in the mail.  I always buy enough to qualify for free shipping.  :-)

New guild activity

The members of our guild decided to do a BOM for the next 12 months.  At the end, the blocks will be stacked by the month they were made and then names will be drawn to see who takes which pile home.

We were given the directions and pattern for our first block last night.  We were to use a very pale yellow, a med. brown and one or more purples.  I came home and started working on it... took a little over an hour or so.... only to find out that it was 12 1/4" x 12 1/4' when it was…

Everyone must be quilting away...

It's been pretty quiet here on the main page. Everyone must be busy quilting. 

Spring (I keep telling myself it is spring anyway - no matter how much snow we get!) is a busy time of year here on our place.  The cows have been moved from winter feed ground and start their rotation through the summer pastures.  We've had good rains and/or heavy, wet snow this spring, so the grass is green & growing.  The yearling calves are caked (fed) every morning and they'll be headed to summer…

I was not able to have the gastric bypass

Due to the fact some surgeons didn't do me any favors I was unable to have the gastric bypass.  The very first surgery I had stapled my pancreas to my stomach.  There was no room to make a pouch.  So I am going to have to do this the old fashion way.  Which will be really hard as my husband wants me to eat.  I will just have to be strong and say no this is all I am eating.  Wish me luck with this.  It will take a very long time to loss a 120 pounds.
