Quilt With Us

Roseann Marsett's Blog (14)

Been a while

I just realized that it's been too long since I've posted. My new puppy Hershel is now 18 months old and weighs 78 pounds. Ha!

I took 2 Judy Niemeyer classes this year and have yet to finish the quilt tops. I'm working on a Crabapple Quilts "Trim the Tree" as a present for my daughter. I'm still not done quilting my "Fanciful Flowers" quilt and my new grandson's memory quilt is still not finished and he is geting ready to turn 3.

And I thought retirement was going to be stress…

Dr Seuss at light speed

My one and only grandson (I have 6 granddaughters) had wanted an Elmo quilt but now he wants Dr. Seuss. He will be one in about 3 weeks so I was working on Elmo for his BD party. Now I will do a Dr Seuss quilt. Just bought the fabric online. I hope it is delivered quickly so I can get going on this.  You may ask how a one year old let me know which quilt he wanted.  He giggles when I hand him pictures.  What more can I say!

"today you are you, that is truer than…

Fall - it's almost here

Just returned from 3 weeks in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho. Had a great time and really felt inspired to sew and paint. I signed up for an art quilt class in Monterrey in the spring of 2012.  I'm looking forward to that.  I feel that fall in right around the corner in the SW so I'm getting ready for some pumpkin theme decorating of my house and yard.  I'd love to see pictures of how you decorate for fall . So if you can post some it would be appreciated. Have a great Labor day.

I got my groove back.

Sounds kind of silly, but I just couldn't seem to get with all my projects this winter. I made snail's pace progress and really had to push myself. But for the last few weeks it's been great. I finished my Tree of Life quilt which I started over a year ago. I had it 90% done but then lost interest in it. Finished it today, hung it up and feel great about it. I also finished 7 out of the 9 blocks for my new grandson's quilt. He is due in about 2 weeks. 

It's funny how sometimes we just…

Crazy time

Just realized it's been almost a year since I posted. It's been so crazy this year. With the economy what it is we've been working so much harder just to stay in place. And the competition is so fierce because eveyone's in the same boat. So I'm using that as my excuse as to why the time has flown. Looking back much has happened but nothing bad, just busy and for that i'm thankful. My 6th granddaughter was born this year. Yes, 6 grandchildren, all girls. They are all beautiful and will be…

Thanks Giving Again

Just returned from a mini vacation in Colorado and I'm thankful the DH and I are OK and all in one piece. Left early to come home, going slow through the canyon, but hit a patch of snow on top of ice which hadn't been plowed. Luckily we missed the rock wall but in trying to avoid it I ended up about 20 feet into a field on the other side. A lot of bouncing, but airbags didn't even deploy. Rigth rear tire pulled off the rim. It could have been much, much worse. Changed the tire in 20 degree… Continue

Thanks Giving

Friend of mine says that between now and Thanksgiving we should wirte one thing a day we're thankful for.

So... I am thankful for the family I came from. They helped me be a better person. We never doubted that we were loved and they gave us an excellent education even though it meant many sacrifices on their part. They also gave us a foundation of faith. Growing up I didn't think they were anything special but as I moved around the country and traveled the world I came to realize how… Continue

Mornin all

Good morning everyone. It's Monday. I used to work with a gentleman who used to come to work every Monday and say"Monday, another day to strive and achieve" and he said it with a smile. And meant it. I learned a lot from him. I'm still not as positive as he is but I'm a lot better than I used to be.

I'm still working on the paper dolls quilt for my GD in Portland. I'm doing stippling around each doll and it's very time consuming. I figure if I do one a night (I work during the day) I'll… Continue

November Next

Just had some trick or treaters. We haven't had any in recent years, but ever the optimist I bought some candy anyway and now I'm glad I did (even though I know I'll eat the leftovers and I definitely don't need it). It was cute to see the little kids dressed up. We live on acre lots with mostly teens and grown kids so not many trick or treaters. Now on to plans for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays becuase we get to have the… Continue

Good Mornn

Mornin everyone. I just finished the handapplique on my quilt. It's a tree of life quilt. Now I get to do the sewing, bordes, quilting, and the embroidery and bead touches. I'm ready. I love every quilt I start but as time goes on I'm ready to finish it and get going on another. I already have the next two in my mind and on those days I'm bored with the appliques I cut out the other two. I'll be going on vacation soon and will do the hand embroidery and the trim on the road. Perfect… Continue

Laurel Burch Panel Wall Quilt

I finished this quilt for my neice and will give it to her for a Christmas decoration. She loves cats and the modern colors and patterns. Laural made such beautiful fabrics. They're a treat to the eyes.

Happy July

July in the desert is hot, and humid in the afternoons when the thunderstorms roll in. But no one I know compains about the thunderstorms. They're majestic. The big thunderheads start building in the early afternoon and after a few hours the sky is gray and rather scarey. But we love them. When the weather report is either hot and clear or warm and clear a little change is a great thing. The thunderboomers are loud and dangerous, so we get out of the pool. There's nothing I enjoy more than… Continue

Prestamped baby quilt

I bought a prestamped baby quilt which I am to embroider. I have no problem with that, but am I supposed to make sure none of my stitches appear on the back. Since it's already quilted and has the binding so it is finished except for my embroidery. I've never done one of these before but one of my daughters-in-law liked it for her new baby. Any advise or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - Roseann
