Harper Grace

A couple of weeks early, Lil Miss Harper came into the world last night at 9:58pm weighing in at 6#5oz.......18" long.  Best part is she has healthy lungs!

Thank you all again for prayers and support! j

Asking for more prayers.....

To my friends on QWU that offered up prayers for baby Harper.... she and her Mom have made the 37 weeks.  Now she can safely come when God is ready.  Thank you so much for your prayers.

Now asking for prayers for a cousin, Julie......just diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer.  Please pray she can make the decisions best for her, proceed with strength and faith through this....and for the physicians to be caring, most capable and help her make the best decisions.

Thank you…

Prayers for Baby Harper

Nephew (Travis) and his wife (Erin) are expecting a little girl.....Harper however, is being rather impatient and wanting to be born!  Please pray that Erin can carry her for a couple of more weeks, lung development is so important.....she's at 34 weeks now.  They have 4 boys and Harper (their "last pregnancy" as they call her) the first girl......Thank you! j

Merry Christmas, Friends!

Sending my warmest wishes for a wonderful Christmas Day to you all as you celebrate the birth of Jesus.

I spent a glorious Christmas Eve day sitting and looking out the window at our first snowfall and getting some sewing done.  A perfect…

Received fabric for table runner today - my contest fabric!

Much prettier than in the catalog or on the web! Thank you again CT!! I'll post a pic when it's done!

Also would like to ask for prayers for a friend's son, Clint. Just recently station in Afghanistan - called his Mom in tears as the camp was under attack! I cannot imagine his fear or how she felt when she spoke with him. He wanted his siblings and Dad to know too that he loved them, etc. Please pray for him, his camp, his family and all of our troops. Thank you!

Is it the date?

I am working on last year's shop hop quilt..........black and white, beautiful fabrics. I don't know if it's today's date or the actual directions that came from some of the shops. What were they thinking when they photocopied patterns for black and white (dark, medium, light or maybe 2 different darks) and didn't lighten the copy? Everything is so dark on a couple of blocks/patterns that you cannot distinguish which is which - which isn't easy when the pieces are the same size and cut?…

Thank you all!

for my birthday wishes! I had a lovely day, started with Thimbleberries, sewed for a while (with NO unsews) and ended with dinner with friends and ice cream........doesn't get any better. AND I got the sunshine I asked for! Thank you, all.....j

Parkinson's Quilt Project

Is anyone else aware of this project? All will be sewn together and displayed in Scotland this year. They're counting by States. Too bad we couldn't have a QWU group and count by us!! I'll be entering a 2'x2' block/panel. Found it on FB!

Merry Christmas!

As Tiny Tim so aptly put it - "God bless us everyone" and blessings to our country and those that protect us.

Where's Herman aka Monsters in the Closet

Thanks to all who offered help with my 1/2 triangles and then whether I should mitre my border or not. He's finished (well, except for the label). Thanks again to all the great folks on this site and their talent and suggestions! Pics are posted on my page. (I have an old version of some program that makes other pics huge - sorry!)

I've been a little "quiet" recently due to a very sick pup (who is now, happily, sleeping on my chest) and a fall my uncle experienced - so I've been a little… Continue

Thar's nuttin' in my mouff!

This is Gracie........one of many squirrels. She was caught redhanded with old cushion stuffing in her mouth. Old cushion was left out for the birds but I guess she needed a little too! I needed a smile and she sure gave me one........thought some of you might enjoy. Hope the pic comes through.

Need Some Calculation HELP!

I probably shouldn't be attempting this as yet as I'm quite a Newbie but am trying a layout of my own design. Have everything else calculated - block/sashing/sashing corners/inner and outer borders but am stuck on this.

I am trying to "frame" 9 inch square blocks (9 1/2) but I want to frame them with 1/2 rectangles sewn together (so I can get two colors on each side) to make a 3" wide piece. Using a 3" x 9 1/2" piece cut into the triangle/s and resewn is too short. I know that when you're… Continue
