Is it just me or

For those of you who have ordered and used the CT material semi-solid mirage- has anyone else noticed a difference in the way the material feels?  I've gotten a few orders or the material to use as backing and just washed and dried one of them to use in a new block and it has a very different feel to it. I like it, it feels softer and holds its shape pretty good when cut on the angles.

I was just curious to know if it was just me or if it's the material.

Good morning all

Having read everyones posts about the snow and weather, I can't complain.  It's raining in Washington still but at least its not freezing.  Things have been fairly quiet around here.  just finishing up some things left hanging in the wings for my quilt patterns and getting ready to send out the first of my test patterns.  I would have gotten them out sooner but for some reason when I went to add the photos to my instructions, the photos disappeared from my computer.  I blame the dogs for…

Another top done but what about the quilting?

Good evening everyone, I've completely finished the Remember When quilt top.  It now has its borders and mitered corners.  All that is left is to quilt the darn thing.  That might take me a while sense I have so many things going on my plate right now that I don't know if I'll ever get caught up.  I have been working on the quilt top that I started last year for my nieces daughter.  If luck holds out I may get that one quilted by next week and get the binding put on it. I've posted pictures on… Continue

Wow! Finally!

Whew  I finally got the pieces put together for the Remember When quilt top.  This wasn't difficult, just time consuming or is it that I have too much on my plate???  By tomorrow I should have the borders put on. :o)

For those of you curious about the herd, yes I did have to fight with them to keep them out of the room while I finished piecing this together and to get the photo without the dogs taking all the glory for my work! …

A sign of the changing times we live in

I work at a grocery store in town and I can always tell when the times are changing.  Money starts getting really tight for some people they start breaking into the collection of old money.  A few years ago when gas hit $4.39 a gallon here I had a customer bring in Ben Franklin half dollars.  Yes I did get those from the store.  Last night one of the girls I worked with called to tell me someone had brought in silver dollars.  Did I want them?  Of course I did.  There was $15.00 worth of coins… Continue

It's snowing here...

Ok it's snowing in western washington, again.  We had some back before Christmas that stuck in the freezing weather and was gone by Christmas.  I'm on vacation!  Let it snow!!!!!  No getting up at 3:30 in the morning. Spending 10 minutes in the car just to warm it up to drive down the slick roads to  work at 5:30!!!  Let it snow, just as long as it's gone by saturday night. I work sunday morning.  So for the last two days I've been piecing my quilt together and working on the instructions for… Continue

who would have thought....

I have been trying to come up with a name for my website.  All the catchy, quilty  names have been taken.  Shoot I can't even use my own name in the site.  Ran  a check and there are several Kathys' out there who use their name in their websites.  And here I thought I was all alone! So here I am again with my hand out for help. If any one has any ideas, give me a shout.

This that and the other thing....

This morning the BF finally got to go back to work.  Don't get me wrong, it was nice to have him home for the holidays but that came with a price on it. To the tune of several thousand dollars in truck repairs.  Altough we aren't paying the repair bills, it's still a chunk of change that I wouldn't  want to come up with.  All that means is that now I have time to get back to working on my quilts. It was difficult not to spend all my time working on finishing up these quilts and working on…

Vacation vacation vacation

Almost anyway.  Things have been so busy around here that I forgot I have vacation time coming.  I have a new department manager and I've been keeping him busy with all the wonderful things that he needs to know to run our department.  Yesterday he started asking me about vacation time sense the first thing I handed over to him was making out the department schedule. ??? I completely spaced on it coming up.  My plans you ask?  To lay on a warm, really warm beach and bake in the sun. Ok so…
