"On A Limb"

It has been awhile since I have posted a blog. I finished this table runner today, and wanted to share it.  This is my adaptation of "On a Limb" designed by Mary Warner-Stone (directions in the December 2016-March 2017 issues of "The Quilt Pattern Magazine"…

Need to get my quilting mojo back...

We have been traveling the past week. Decided to drive to Halifax, NS via VT, NH, and Maine. We decided that many people miss out on the colors of Spring with the different trees leafing. The coast line of Maine was special. We stopped in Kennebunkport for lunch and picked out our fictious house on the sound! If only....

We stopped in Freeport at the LL Bean place and did a little shopping. Was surprised that they are open 24 hrs. We had lunch in Belfast down on the wharf where they…

AQS's Cofounder Passes Away

If you haven't heard, Bill Schroeder passed away May 13 at the age of 85. He and his wife have been an integral part of the quilting world for many years. They are the ones with the vision to start Paducah Quilt Museum, the yearly shows, which have brought us so many phenomenal quilts and quilters. Also in the publishing world they began AQ Magazine as well as many other publications. The accomplishments of Bill and Marilyn Schroeder are so numerous. An amazing couple to say the least. To…

Looking for Pattern Information

I am looking to purchase the pattern shown below.  It was in an ad in the Mar/Apr 2013 edition of Quiltmaker.

my latest wool project

I really enjoy doing wool applique'.  Wish it wasn't so darned expensive, but I just tell myself I'm worth it.  I started making this on April 26th at a meeting of like minded quilters and finished it about 10 days later.  I decided to have it framed at my local Michael's store and they did a fabulous job.  Right now it is leaning up against the wall in my office as I want to take it to show it off to my friends who belong to the same little group when we meet next week.  This is from the…

May 15 - Busy week

I am hoping that you had a Spirit Led week.  Ours was trying again.  

About one week after the Canton tornadoes to the west of us, there was another storm that went to the east of us, setting down more smaller tornadoes.  I am thankful that this time no injuries or deaths resulted out of these storms.  Life in East Texas.  We have more possible severe storms due later this week.  So please keep East Texas in your prayers.  I believe the nastiness is due here Thursday and…

May 8th What a beautiful day

I hope this finds everyone filled with the Spirit.  

My week was up and down.  I was under the weather a few days this week.  I did get some weaving done though.

Here are some pictures of the banner.  I really need to get a wrought iron banner holder for it.  I used hook and loop on the back to make the hanging sleeve.  I was so amazed that it held up through the high winds and rain of last Saturday.…

May 1 - May Day

Welcome to May.  Since I can't secretly place flowers on each of your doorsteps, I will have to settle for this;

I will need to get a better finished picture of my yard…

Thread Painting.

Sharing two Thread paintings. I use sometimes the CT threads along with the other threads I have. The first one is a photo I took and printed on fabric and embellished with threads. The second is of Georgian Bay On the Great Lakes. This one I painted the background with inktense pencils and blocks then thread painting over the top to give it depth. Getting ready for an Mothers Day Open House the week before Mothers Day.…

April 24 Trying to get a routine

Hello everyone.  I hope you had a Spirit Led week.  

I am trying to help my husband in the yard.  We have a quarter acre in town, so it has to be kept 'neat'.  If it were in the country, I would not be as concerned about it.  If you know what I mean.  So, I spent several days in the flower gardens, weeding.  They look so good after the weeds are pulled, so the flowers can shine.

I also did some weaving.  I am almost finished with the garden banner.  After it…

Charity Project time

Haven't blogged in a while, but that doesn't mean I've been lax on the work in the studio.  My DH had a Birthday early April so when our DS came for a visit we combined his Birthday, our 35th Anniversary and Easter together as all these celebrations were only separated by a couple days.  It was so good to see him and spend some time together.  

I've been spending my studio time making charity kennel quilts and MorsBags.  Seems like the scrap bin is getting bigger with smaller scraps…

Off to quilt retreat

It is time for our Springtime quilt retreat. I have loaded the car with enough projects to last for three years of steady working. We will have to wait and see how much I actually get done in 4 and 1/2 days. The motel where we go loves us. We aren't whiny. We clean up our own messes and we welcome people to come in and see what we are doing. So far we haven't found a way to explain why we laugh so much.
