Started Christmas Projects...

There's nothing more uncomfortable than reading from the iPad for any length of time. So, started looking on you tube for a pillow pattern for an iPad. I changed a few things on this one…but, am pleased how it came out. I am making them for the grandsons' mini-ipads and one for me and my friends!!! 

I quilted…

House Fire and A Shop!

Hello All,

It's been a hectic fall around here.  I started back to work (at the middle school) on Sept. 6 after a somewhat relaxing summer.  The Saturday after school started, Sept 10, I was home with my youngest son.  The breaker for the washing machine flipped off,  there was no wash going at the time, I reset it only to have it flip off again.  My husband was out working on the shop he's building but happened to come into the house for a drink of  water.  At that point, the…

My latest wool applique finish

My friend Dawn Heese with Linen Closet Designs has started designing cute little projects that resemble shopping tags.  I bought this one & another one that looks like a bouquet of tulips from her at a quilt show a couple of weeks ago.  I just really felt the urge to get this one done.  It is about 14" x 22" and doesn't require any quilting as it is fused to the backing.  I have it hanging on the wall in my kitchen right now, but this pic shows it laying on my sewing room floor.  These…

October Catch-Up

I see it’s been just over 2 months since I last posted here.  And I also see that I had already admitted to having a not very productive summer.  I’m afraid that it continued into the month of September, but I have finally settled down to some sewing.

I spent a week in Victoria at the end of September, helping to celebrate Sophia’s second birthday, and marvelled at how she has grown and changed in the past year.  She’s a very busy little girl, and her parents end each day quite…

Not responsible....

I had nothing to do with hurricane Mathew. Sorry, that so many are displaced. Nothing worse than flooding. I am in SAN Antonio. It is hot... came from cool weather in NY. This is the last trip for awhile. I need to get my house deep cleaned before the holidays. Not to mention, get a few things made. There is a quilt shop not too far from the hotel. Will try to get there and check out some southwestern prints. We are here for a conference, but will get to visit the Alamo and love the Mexican… Continue

140 days later....

Moms house is done, well it was done back in August, finally, and up for sale.  It was actually sold twice but the deals didn't go threw.  Such is life.  It is once again sold even though we still have a few things to do according to the inspection report we just got but they will be manageable, I hope.  So now that I have a little breathing room I started taking a long look at my house.  I guess I ended up with a few more things of moms than I realized.  I've had this box sitting on the…

Hurricane Matthew

I hope that none of our QWU members are experiencing problems due to the severe hurricane that is hitting the east coast.  If you are, here is sending positive thoughts your way that you don't sustain any injuries or damage to your property.  I can't get over how some people refuse to evacuate when there is a storm of this severity heading their way.  At least with a hurricane you have enough time to get to safety.  That is not always the case with a tornado.

Progress and Brain Storming

Well, I've made slow progress on my UFO's.  I finished #2 blue jean strip rag rug and is now by the back door and looks amazing.  After cleaning my machine of all the jean threads and dust/lint, I swiftly moved on to the next, improv strips (meaning cut with scissors and no ruler) from my scrap bag which are cut…
