I have been stitching this for the past year. It always feels so good to take that last stitch!
This is a gift to our family doctor. He has given us such great care for the past 40 years. Our son and family also go to him. He has been a great friend and asset to our community. He and his wife will greatly appreciate it.…Continue
This is an amazing quilt and truly deserved the win! Over 5000 pieces!!!! Years ago, someone stoled a quilt from the show. Just walked out the back door. Never did recover it...Continue
As much as we love fresh corn, hardy mums and The NY State fair it means summer is ending. It's a special Labor Day weekend for our family. Our parents will have been married 70 years! They are both 88 and doing great. They don't travel like they use to... but always manage to stay busy. They have subscribed to their hometown paper in Schuyler, NE for 70 years. This is the announcement, I placed to surprise them...the year should be 49, they assured me it has been corrected!
How much company can one house have in one week? It has been nonstop for the entire month...so, there wasn't any quilting going on! I did score two tops for a friend. I have two in the works so passed on them. We went to Rutland Vermont to a wedding. What a beautiful area. There is a small Norman Rockwell museum that we visited. Amazing man. When we got to the section of 1950, we started recognizing Saturday Evening Post covers. Lots of memories. We also went to the original Vermont Country…Continue
We have been so fortunate to have a place to share and learn new things about our passion. We're all busy, but take some time to participate and help make this the site it use to be. This is not just about quilting, it is about sharing...so let's see some new faces and projects. Have a great day!
A huge Thank You to Connecting Threads for allowing us all these years to share!
How about that! I promised myself I wasn't starting another project until all UFOs were in an active stage. I have one at the lake that I'm hand quilting and one here at the house that I'm hand quilting. This one I'm machine quilting for a retirement gift. She has been Gary's right hand lady...she will be greatly missed.
Since summer is upon us...I'll end with this:…Continue
Seriously, I was ready to kill him! Cleaning windows and mopping floors and he thinks he's going to cross that floor with his shoes on after doing yard work!!! Finishing up my 6 purses this morning. Next on the list is an I Spy quilt for new parents in August.…Continue
I must have been out of my mind when... I agreed to make 6 purses for a lifelong friend. She wants them for her sisters for Christmas. Promises are promises...Again, I'm trying to get this off my list before summer gets here. This weather can't seem to make up it's mind...…Continue
The best part of Spring is all the pretty flowers! Luckily, we don't have allergies, so I have fresh flowers all the time. We had a very nice Easter with our son and his family! They surprised the boys with tickets to the first home Michigan game. As you can see, they are huge fans! I finished the tree skirt for a wedding gift in July. I am so glad to have that off the list. This week will be cleaning windows and screens now the weather is nicer. …Continue
We've been home for a couple of weeks. Finally, caught up on appointments, etc. The weather is bouncing around. Managed to get some yard work done. Working on a tree skirt for a wedding gift. The wedding is in July, but want it off the list. Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and Passover. We have brunch with the family then head to the lake house to do yard work…Continue
We only have ten days left before heading back north! Hoping the major storms are done by then! We rented a home for next year this week. The management group said they rent 80 homes and had only three left. Luckily, one was the one we wanted. They have never seen it so crazy! With the winter so bad, people are getting ready for next winter.…Continue
Went to my favorite quilt shop ...Quilt Lover's Hangout in North Ft. Myers. They moved! Beautiful new shop. They are always so friendly and helpful. There was a newbie trying to buy supplies for a class...it was fun listening to her questions and concerns.
Told her, the only thing you have to worry about...there is no treatment for this…
