Just thought I would share and update since my last post in Feb.
I finished the quilting on the Blue quilt in March and it is just waiting for me to stitch on the binding.
In February I went on a retreat with all the girls in my family - Daughter, Daughter in law, Grand daughter, Step daughter and SD's mom. It was fun and I pieced another weekender quilt top for my mother in law, who is now in a nursing home.
I quilted that in March and finished up the binding in April.…Continue
Goals for 2015 -
Do I dare make goals?? I have tons of WIP's to work on. Not to mention the quilts I haven't started that I want to start.
I do have one quilt loaded on my long arm. It's the blue and white squares and I try to put in about 15 minutes to 1/2 an hour, couple of times a week on it, but I am slow and easily distracted.
If I do make goals it would strictly be for quilts I want to get done, not small projects like table runners, or hot pads.
This year as far as quilting goes has been a complete bust. I don't think I have completed one quilt this year.
I am currently quilting a quilt for a friend but that has been it. :( I have made some scarves, a couple of baby outfits and I do have a baby quilt ready to be bound. I just remembered I did quilt a baby quilt for my step daughter's new baby. It was a chevron panel with minky on the back. Cute and super easy.
I think ever since I had to go back to work several…Continue
Ok, so last weekend I went to Minneapolis to the Ikea store and got a new sewing table and a new cutting table. YAY!!! I love them both and they cost me around $200. YIKES!!
They are my Christmas, anniversary and birthday presents from my husband to myself because those events are all in this month and next month but now I just checked out the clearance section on the CT website and am wondering if $100 worth of fabric is asking to much to add to my gifting to myself…Continue
Thank you to my friends that posted comments on my April post. I really appreciate your comments.
Usually I just throw stuff out there to see what sticks. :) It's nice to know someone is reading these blog posts. Funny thing though I have been posting since 2009 but only once a year for the last 3 years. This post is breaking that streak. ;0
I posted some new pics so take a look.
I am finally on days now, though I am not sure that really gives me anymore time, it just…Continue
Well it hasn't been quite another year yet and I am posting again. I thought if anyone was looking through their friends pages to see who was still on I wanted them to know I still get on here every now and then. I have been working a full-time job for the last year and working on my sewing studio in my spare time. I haven't been quilting as much as I would like to be but still plugging away at it. I haven't finished anything in quite awhile and am hoping spring fever will kick me into high…Continue
Wow, I can't believe a whole year has gone by. So much has happened.
I bought a Gammill Long Arm sewing machine last July and it arrived in August. After quilting True Blue on my domestic sewing machine I decided that was way too much work and it took forever to get it done. It also occurred to me that there may be others who had tops pieced but didn't want to struggle with a full sized quilt under their regular machine as well so I started a Long arm sewing service in October…Continue

Since I haven't written a blog post in a long while I thought I would put something up. I added a list of completed and uncompleted projects to my page. It is nice to see it written down all in one place.
I finally got True Blue all quilted and binding on. I quilted it on my regular sewing machine and boy was that a bear. It turned out really nice so I can't complain though it really has pushed me to look into getting a long arm machine since it appears the…Continue
