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.

Hello from Maine

Snow flurries here this morning.  Like we need to see that.  But the temps have been warm for the most part. It won't last, so not fretting about it.  Have had a few health problems the past two months. UTI followed by a massive hives breakout from the antibiotic I took for the UTI. The doctor is still trying to get my Cumidin level adjusted back to normal. So it's back and forth to the lab at the hospital trying to get it back to normal.  Bud is on Palliative Care now.  He hasn't been doing…

April 17 Passion Week is complete

I really do hope that everyone had a Passion Spirit Led week.  I know I did.  

Besides all the normal domestic stuff we all have to do, I was able to complete the hand sewing of the binding on the quilt and hand sewed on the custom label.  I was able to complete the transaction after Church services on Sunday.  Sorry no picture of me handing it over.  But I do have pictures of the 72 inch by 89 inch quilt.…

April 10 A mix of a week

I had a great week overall.  I did some indoor domestic 'stuff'.  You know, that stuff we crafters always put off.  I really did not spend anytime outdoors.  My husband was doing some burning of the cut off limbs from a hedge that had gotten out of control.  He has cut them down to about 3 foot tall.  They had been some 8 foot high, with all types of vines and baby trees growing up through it.  It was totally unruly.  When it grows back, it should be really nice.

Tuesday we…

Just finished Thread Painting.

I have my new lap top up and going but it doesn"t seem to like me signing in again and won't let me load a picture on the thread painting site, just wondering if it will let me do it here.

This my lastest thread painting of Shallop Cove Newfoundland. Made for my DIL birthday gift.…

The verdict is still out....

Do I divorce him or keep him around for a slow torture? We arrived home two nights ago at 10pm. We have had rules that we never travel at night, no more than eight hours, and never arrive home at night in case there is an issue with the house. We broke them all...my appt. in Orlando went smoothly and we were on the road by noon. Spent the night in SC when the storms got too scary to drive. That put us 14 hrs to home...

Before we left, hubby took all the food to the fridge downstairs.…

April 3 Spring has sprung here

I hope everyone had a wonderful spirit led week.  Overall, mine was great.

I contacted the person in charge of the Easter Egg hunt and have not heard back.  I made up samples for approval.  I have not heard a word.  So, it appears that they are not interested.  That is ok.  

I need to get to weaving.  I plan on making a couple of 'garden banners' and embroider on them.  That way the design will show on both sides.  I will use the same color in the bobbin as the…

One Wedding Quilt Done

Last night I finished this quilt for niece and her new husband.  It looks a little strange since it is a king size on a full size bed but I love the way it came out.  It is quilted with perle cotton.…

April Fools'

It's only fitting that Mother Nature has the last laugh on us - snowing right now and about 6-10 inches will fall by Saturday pm. 

I have not been on this site for a while.  Though I retired, it seems that there are less hours to do the normal daily chores. When was the last time I thoroughly cleaned the house - let me see, when did I have some company? Can't remember.

Anyways, I'm still quilting.  I now belong to a local quilt guild, and have volunteered to help out with…

March 27

Morning friends and readers.  I hope you have had a wonderful week.

Not harping on my situation, but today is the first day I have not woken up without pain.  My back is healing slower that I had hoped.

I did not get any fun things done this week.  I take that back a little.  We had stopped by our high school FFA agriculture greenhouse.  They were having a sale on some flowering and vegetable plants they had started.  If you have ever gone to your local garden…

Flashback Monday

Some of you that have been on this site for years will remember Miss Riley from Texas. What an artist and quilter she was. Unfortunately, she passed away. I saw these pictures this week and thought of her paintings of blue bonnets. We are in our last week in Florida. Next week, I will be in Orlando getting…

quilt kits giveaway

We are downsizing and moving.   There are 2 boxes of my quilt "kits".  Some are already pieced but need the applique, one just needs quilting, several are just fabrics that go good together.  

I'll mail the boxes to a person or group who will use them for good.

Spring fever

Our totally unusual winter with the HUGE drifts is moving into spring. The last of the drifts in my yard are not very spectacular anymore. Now they are small and covered with dirt that has blown in. I am developing "garden fever". It is a very common ailment. Yesterday was so bad that I cleaned the garage (okay, half of it) so I could set up my seed sprouting spot.

It is still weeks before the "last freeze", or not. We might be done with the severe cold but we have a long history of…

March 20 - the confusing week

I hope all had a great week.  Mine could have been better.  

While in the Dallas area caring for our grandson, I went to pick him up and something went out in my lower back.  It is healing slowly.

Since I was mostly out of commission, no crafts were done.  I had a hard time figuring out what day of the week it was, since I went to my sons' on Saturday and came home on Tuesday.  I just felt my days were mixed up.

I will share some pictures of my…

Happy National Quilting Day

If you ask my husband, he will tell you that I consider every day to be quilting day, but this is the official National Quilting Day.  I went on a road trip with 3 friends to Warsaw, MO, which is a small town north of Springfield where we visited 3 stores where we all made sure to support the local economy.  Then we went to this bar-b-que restaurant that has probably been there since the 1940's.  Had wonderful food!  All in all a fabulous way to spend a sunny Saturday in March.
