Nancy Zieman

As some of you might not be aware, Nancy Zieman from Sewing With Nancy passed away today after battling cancer. She will definitely be missed in the sewing & quilting community. I know she was able to tape 13 episodes of this season and the last one will be with her 2 granddaughters. I will definitely miss seeing her every week on our local PBS station.

Finished one of two Christmas gifts...

Our oldest grandson is a nascar fan. I found the scanned print of Jimmie Johnson on Ebay. He'll love it and will be a good lap quilt to wrap up in to watch the races. Have one more left to make the youngest brother. He is all army and camo. Have a great…

Nov 13 - Overall a good week

Feeling blessed.  No special reason other than I had a good week and was Spirit Led.

The organization I delivered the charity quilts to were very grateful.   They wish they had more, with winter moving in.  It does get cold in Texas.  Maybe not as cold as Montana or Maine, but for Texans, it is cold.  There are still many that are suffering still from the tornado that came through Van over 2 years ago.  I told the lady that when possible, I will try to make more.  Our Dollar…

Bargin scissors

I can't let a 60% off coupon go by without using it at JoAnn fabrics. I decided to get a new pair of gingher scissors. They were $59 and I got them for $28. Then, I got to thinking, is there a better brand out there that I am not aware of. What brand of scissors do you recommend? I'm always up for change!

November 6 - OH NO, November already!

Again, the Spirit Led me through the week.  

Again, I come asking for prayers.  Many of you have heard of the shooting in a rural town in south Texas.  If not, here is a link: http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/05/us/first-baptist-church/index.html

Parents lost children, children lost parents, the pastor and his wife (were out of town) lost their daughter and many of the…

Found my machine again!

Hello gals

It's been awhile since I posted. Thank you to the ones who sent me messages. The weather is finally turning colder... so closed the lake house. Down to one place to maintain at a time. The time just gets away...I did start a lap size quilt. Feels good to be back in my sewing room. Was in a slump this summer, but with the holidays coming up fast, I need to get busy. I promise to be better at posting!!!

banner for my fireplace mantle

Here is a pic of a banner I finished this afternoon for my fireplace mantle. The designs are from The Embroidery Library and were stitched out on my embroidery machine. I have had that gray fleece for so many years I can't remember when I bought it or what I bought it for, but it was perfect for this project. I stitched it out on the back so it wouldn't be as "fuzzy".…

Oct 23 - A real rough week

Though it was a real rough week, it was still Spirit Led.

My son and his wife had a OB/GYN visit on Wednesday.  They went to mainly for the gender reveal.  The results were put in an envelope to be given to Erica's sister for the party.  That is not the only news they got.

The baby has a heart defect.  They had to go to a pediatric cardiologist for confirmation.

This is part of the text message from our son:…

Oct. 16 - Overall a good week

My week was Spirit Led, was yours?

We had a pretty good week, this past week.  I was able to work a lot on on the embroidery machine.  The weather is getting more seasonable.  It has been warmer than usual here in Texas.  The highs have been in the mid 90's, a little to warm for this time of year.

This coming Saturday is the reveal party for our expected 4th grandchild.  I am so excited.  I will be excited to share with you next week.  I am thinking it is a…

Double Bowtie quilt

Members of the Piece Around the World made me Double Bowtie blocks for my birthday a few years ago and I finally got the top quilted & bound.  I'm so pleased with how it turned out.  I still need to put a hanging sleeve & label on the back so will get that done soon. …

Spiced Potpourri Quilt

This is latest charity quilt I made using the Spiced Potpourri collection. I used the pumpkin polyester thread to quilt and it blended beautifully both front and back. I love the autumn colors of this collection and how they coordinate.fullsizeoutput_82e.jpeg
