I am not making much in the way of gifts this year, but I did just finish Miss Bailey's Christmas gift...
It's a byAnnie pattern (Out and About) and uses her Soft & Stable. It's great to work with....but some of the seams are really really thick to have to sew through. I found my old old Bernina that I bought several years ago for art…Continue
I posted the quilt I just finished. The file was too large for this area so you can view it on my pictures. I finished it last night at 12:30.
Vintage quilt with a story. (I'm having trouble loading the picture, so I hope it is able to be seen.)
In June of 2016, we had our annual maternal family reunion on the ranch where Mom was raised. My cousin had just remodeled the original ranch house and was sharing her mother's things with the family. There was a quilt she wanted me to see…Continue
I posted that I was gifting our family doctor of 40 years with a quilt. We received such a heartfelt thank you letter from him. He is in his early 70s...like all of us, you start out with such great enthusiasm in your first career. Soon to discover that managing a family practice is hard enough, but the staff issues make it more difficult. He finally has the best staff he has ever had and finds that he has fallen back in love with medicine...
I see that in my hubby's career...once you…Continue
I spent most of last week cleaning house for our visitors and the appraiser, so I wanted to take some photos while it was clean. Here's the living room.
I went to work yesterday and had a runny nose all morning. I finally gave up and came home at lunch time. So my boss does know that I am sick and never questions my missing time which by the way is only the 6th or 7th time I've ever called out sick in nearly 20 years of work. After spending yesterday and all night in bed the last thing I want to do is go back to bed but not quite well enough to go to work. So what does one do when your sick and bored?
We are still living in the RV…Continue
There wasn't a lot of fiber fun this week, but I managed to finish one washcloth to go to a military troop stationed in Africa....…
Just checking in. It's nice to see some posts on here. I'm hoping to get a Sunbonnet Sue quilt finished. I have the blocks done but customer orders keep me busy and during the Summer I spend a lot of time out doors so getting anything finished is difficult. Now that Fall is here I won't be outside as much and will have more time to work on my projects. I need to make a quilt for my bed. My quilt is faded, thread bare and needs to be thrown out. And the cats claws are not helping. I'm also…Continue
The schedule is out! My quilt is in the BROWN (aka Chocolate) group.

I know many of us are always battling the weight issues...I also know that many of us love our M and Ms!!
We have moved back to the house. Will do long weekends at the lake. It definitely turned cooler. The leaves are turning after this weekend with frost...they will really turn. Have a few projects in mind...have been ask to teach a church group to make pillowcases for the children's hospital and the local nursing home. The first thing will be to oil and clean their machines! They looked like deer in headlights when I asked the last time they cleaned their machines! lol I bought several packs…Continue
Yesterday I went to a small quilt show put on by a guild I used to belong to. The membership in this guild is dwindling and it has sure affected the quality of their show! While most of the quilts were nicely done, there were not nearly as many as in years past. Kinda sad actually. It was nice seeing some of the ladies who still belong and they all asked me to come back, but that is not going to happen. Funny thing happened though. I met one of their newer members & found out she…Continue
This past week most of my time was involved either in preparing for the new arrival or getting him ready to appear in his first story. I made a pair of pajama bottoms for Billy and another one for Emil. I'm using a purchased T-shirt to go with each. (The cute bear fabric came from…Continue
