Been Away

Hello, I have been away from my Blog for 4 years!!! I cant believe the time has gone so very fast.  So much has changed. My son got married and started his own business. My youngest son is a Senior in College. We moved and have added another Rescue dog to our family. We have had many foster dogs and pups come to stay for just a bit, while they were waiting for their "Furever" home. Hope to get back into the swing of things. I have learned some new techniques that I would like to share on my…

Good News!

Last night my DD announced that they're having a baby.  I'm going to be a grandma again!  My DGD is almost 10 so she was so excited. They just bought a 3 bedroom house in June so everything is falling in place.  Now I've got to get another quilt going.  We saw our DGS last weekend and he gave me painting lessons. He's our budding inventor.  They just came back from North Carolina so he is inventing a crab sorting machine. LOL  He wouldn't let me bring it home and put on the frig because he…

Arrived in Florida and settling in

Well, after some horrendous missteps caused by the bank, we finally closed on our new Florida home and are slowly settling in. The settlement was supposed to have been on Monday (July 29) but due to a bank oversight, they "discovered" a document they didn't know they had (had it since May and they HAD requested it) and this we found out when we were getting gas on the Ohio/Kentucky border! After having major meltdown, and some fast typing on the internet - thank heavens for smart phones - we…

Dad's 80th Birthday Surprise

Hi everyone. Earlier this year I decided that I would make a special quilt for my father who would celebrate his 80th birthday on August 5, 2013 - Today! I decided on a patriotic quilt as he is a veteran of the US Navy. I had a patriotic panel and some patiotic fabrics that I purchased a couple of years ago from Keepsake Quilting when my husband and I visited New Hampshire on vacation. With a few other fabrics from my stash I was able to plan this quilt without having to buy any additional…

Here she is in her apron

Here's by granddaughter in the apron I made her. She loves it.

I let her wear my gardening hat to keep off the hot sun. With her cute little dress she looks just like Sunbonnet Sue.…

High Fiber—Dressing Ashley

I’m away on vacation, and in the place of my usual blog, I’ve decided to give you a special treat.

When our 20-year-old granddaughter was little and we had just come back from living in Indonesia, I bought an Ashley doll and dressed her up to give to our…

FREE September Candle Mat

What a perfect theme for our September Candle Mat! Yep! A schoolhouse. I know, it's rather predictable but still fun, eh?! It took me only an afternoon to piece, quilt, and bind this little delight.…

can I get a mulligan on that vacation?

So vacation time was a washout.  I was ok the first day but it was all down hill after that.  I was sick with what I would say was sinus and cold all rolled into one.  I didn't even get to babysit Aiden. Having said that, it stands to follow I didn't even get any quilting done. After two days in bed I did get up and start acting like a human being but that was about it.  Even now a week after the start of this whatever I'm still recovering.  Not fair to have wasted vacation time being sick. …

Invitation to take a look at my latest project

I'm not able to post pics to the main page using my iPad. (If it's possible I haven't figured out how,) So I'd like to invite everyone over to my page to see the cute apron I made for my granddaughter. She and her big sis are coming to visit next week, along with mom & dad. Can't wait to see them!

Does anyone live near me?

BJ has inspired me! Thanks lady! I want to meet my fellow QWU gals! I am in East Central Indiana, about 10 miles from the Ohio border. I live in a tiny rural farmtown. So, I will have to drive to meet anyone who wants to meet up. Within 100 miles. Near Ft Wayne, Indianapolis, Dayton, etc. Let me know!

A Day with Suzanne

Today Suzanne L came to my house for the afternoon. We had started trying to get together two years ago (or was it more). Today it finally happened and what a nice time we had!

She brought some Show & Tells, wonderful quilt and afghan treasures that have been in her family, including this gorgeous Grandmother's Flower Garden.…

quilting slump

So...what do you all do to get motivated out of a quilting slump?  

Do you just dig in, grit your teeth, and plow your way through it?

Do you step back and give yourself a break for a time?  

Do you go to quilt shows for inspiration?

Do you go to a class or try a new technique?

What motivates you and gets your creative quilting juices flowing again?  

Just curious. :)

My latest finished wallhanging

Several weeks ago I took a machine embroidery class with Lynda Howell of The Stitch Connection and I finally finished my little quilt this morning.  It is called "Flo's Flower Shop".  I was joking with Lynda by saying that I would have named it "Bee's Flower Shop" instead since there are 2 bees flying around.  I was thinking about donating it to the miniature auction my guild has during our annual quilt show, but now I'm not sure I can part with it.…

new Long arm owner

I recently purchased a used long arm- it is a Gammill premier plus. I have been working on muslin sandwiches to practice on and I also picked up 10 charity quilts from my quilt guild that I can quilt and gain some experience while donating my time.

I have quilted 3 of the charity quilts and the next one I thought I would try some free motion quilting. I wonder if there is anyone who would like to suggest what I should do. I don't have a lot of thread yet and was wondering what color…
