Winter is setting in ...

I had a good Spirit Led week.  I hope you had the same.

I was able to do some work on Avery's quilt.  I started making the individual 'Dresden petals'.  Of the 250 that needed done, I think I had 170 done.  I was waiting on the fabric to finish.  The fabric made it on Friday.  Now I have all the 'petals' made and 200 of them sewn into the circle (10 petals each = 20 circles).  5 more circles are ready to go.  After I get these together, I think the worst is over.  I only have…

Circle of Posies

I finished another wallhanging this afternoon.  I appliqued the center block 20 yrs ago this month.  Then I finally added the borders last year and then quilted it this week.  Better late than never! …

Happy New Year (although January is flying by)

I hope everyone is enjoying 2018. I am having a bit of a problem remembering the year. What happened to 2017 and many prior years? Eek. And now January will fly by as well.

I got my shoveling and dog walking done fairly early today so I thought I'd start another new project to go with the 900 other UFO's. I think I must be dumb as a brick. I got a gift card for our local shop for Christmas so, in the spirit of the season, I spent it all plus some. 

Here is my wisdom for the…

Happy New Year!

I hope you have had a Spirit Led holiday season.

I am sorry for the delay in posting.  It got busy around here.

When I last posted, I was heading to make some organza tree ornaments.  I did not get as many done as I wanted, but here is a taste.

Then we had blood…

High Fiber—Back to Work

We rang in the new year in Beaverton with our younger son's family. We celebrated at midnight Central time, because we knew the littles would be up before the sun.

My Winter Friends

Here is a pic of my latest finished.  I hoped to have this done by midnight on NY's Eve, but didn't quite make it.  The blocks were made by members of The Machine Embroidery Buddies group a few years ago.

I named it "My Winter Friends". …

High Fiber—Out With the Old, In With the New!

We arrived at Uncle Jim's place in Bend the Friday evening before Christmas. He had a small tree, but still pretty big for Vroni.

Happy New Year

I want to wish everyone a safe, happy & prosperous 2018.  I made a good dent in finishing a lot of UFOs in 2017 & my goal is to continue doing that in 2018.  I look around at all of the quilts in my house & shake my head wondering all the while why I need to make any more, but that doesn't stop me in the long run.

Fresh Start...

Good morning ladies-

I always look forward to a new year...mainly because we will be leaving for two and half months to Fl. It is a time for reflection and planning. Last year was good... but we lost dear friends and family members. We all know how difficult that is. Hoping this year will just be quiet and without so much drama in our lives as well as the world. 

We are spending New Years stripping out three rooms of our house. Have contractors in while we are gone to upgrade…

Back from Missing

It has been a long time since I posted here. Life got away from me. I'll have to try and check in more often. Since the last time I was here I have started selling Accuquilt products and have been having a great time doing that. I am also in the process of trying to start a website so I can sell some crafts and material. Hopefully  I will get it figured out soon.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and will have a Wonderful New Year.

Another Year is Dawning

Where does the time go?  It's hard to believe that Christmas is over. We, along with a lot of other States got plenty of snow on Christmas Day. Ours is light and fluffy but it kept the men busy keeping it plowed. 

I had a quiet Christmas with just my son and his girlfriend coming for dinner.  

My head is swirling with all the projects I want to work on the rest of the Winter. I got a couple of Christmas books with patterns that I would like to make. 

Enjoy the rest of…

What 30 minutes does to a room on Christmas Eve!

Good morning and Merry Christmas-

We opened our gifts last evening with the grandsons! They are definitely entertaining! They seemed to like their quilts but when there are toys to play with.....

We are getting blowing snow and dropping temps. Enjoy your day!…

Merry Christmas

I want to wish all of my QWU friends a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2018.  We woke up to snow here in Mid-Missouri this morning so we will have a white Christmas after all.

bias binding

As I made some bias binding this afternoon, I was thinking it was somewhat tedious and awkward, but rather satisfying as I'm cutting (with scissors, even) what seems like miles and miles of binding.  That a smallish piece of fabric can just go on forever is rather mind boggling.

And as it turns out, I have about 100 inches more than what I need!   How did that happen?  Since I'm mathematically challenged, I used a chart.  It said for x inches of binding cut at x width, I'd need 2/3 of…

Merry Christmas to all!

I am keeping a close eye on the weather. We are supposed to fly out on Saturday. Each time I check the long range forecast the thing changes. It is looking probable that there will be ice, snow and subzero temperatures.

That's here. And we will be flying into more of the same kind of thing. Maybe we will have a white Christmas. (It could wait until we all get to our destinations)

On the quilting front, I am binding the second "good deed" quilt. After this, I am going to…

Winter Wonderland

I am so proud of myself.  I actually started and finished a holiday/winter quilt all in the same year!  LOL  This design is called Holiday Redwork by The Stitch Connection, but I'm calling mine Winter Wonderland.  It is now hanging in my family room.  Since it has winter motifs as well as Christmas ones, I'm going to leave it up until the end of January.  You can see the reflection of my Christmas tree in my tv screen next to it. …
