Quilt With Us

break time

Ok I've been sewing fan pieces together for the last couple of hours and it is time for a break. I'm working on a replacement quilt for my bed. I hope this quilt last longer than the one on the bed. Wait a minute. the one on the bed has been there for 20 some years. Ok it's only the last couple of years and the three yorkies that have kind of torn it up with their scratching for a softer spot to lay on. I've cut pieces to repair the damaged quilt but I can't work on it while I'm still using…

Just a little overboard

It was just a little overboard... Ok Joann Fabrics was having a sale and a 50% off coupon- how could I refuse the offer. It was payday after all and I did pay all my bills before I even went to work this morning. I did forget to gas up the car to get to work for the next week but I remembered before I left work so I figure I'll have to work next week too. I couldn't remember what was on sale but I look around and found the cozy flannel on sale for $2.00 a yard. The temptation was too much. I…

my first customer????

Humm, what do you do when your friend calls and says she has a quilt that she sold and wants to have it quilted quickly? A friend of mine has been making quilts and quilting them by hand. she just sold a quilt to one of her friends at work but it isn't quilted. she wanted to know if I would do it on my longarm or if she could use the machine herself for a few hours a day during the week. This could get interesting. She has never done machine quilting which alot of us know is a whole new world.… Continue

I may have gone around the bend...

I've decided that sence Pearl gets to stay and drive me nuts, first of all I am getting her fixed. (I couldn't begin to explain to my Vet's office why Pearl's father also became Pearls mate and fathered more puppies) So having settled that, I have also decided to repair my double wedding ring quilt, the one the little monsters have been clawing at. Surprizingly, I found the same material at Joann's this afternoon that I used some 20 years ago. While repairing said offending quilt I will add… Continue

fool me once shame on you

Trying to fool me twice, I wish I could call the police. Many of you know that I have the yorkie puppy Pearl. She is now 4 months old and very much the trouble maker. Last week she was chasing our retriever Zeus and I think she bit him in the family jewels. He went after like I've never scene. Both of them are fine but I have had enough. I put an ad in the newspaper to sell her. I got a TTY call giving me an email address for someone wanting to buy her. Ok I send the email and I got a long… Continue

Finally time for me

afternoon to all.

All the projects promised to everyone else are done for the moment. It's my turn for a quilt. I've used up all the quilt tops that I had stashed away on practicing with the longarm quilter. The double wedding ring quilt that I've had on the bed for more years than I wanna think about is in serious need of repair and time to be set aside. Now the only problem I have is what to make for me. I've got a design that I've been working on but I want to finish that one for a…

what did I do to deserve this

Hummmm..... I get home from work and there are roses on the table. What did I do??? What did he do????

Flowers just because.... Such a novelity for me. Then he offers to go to the fabric store... I do believe that he is coming down with something, he must be. Granted he wanted a couple of things from the store but he didn't say a word when I did an about turn and scoped out the flannel on sale. When I found him again he was looking at a tote rack on wheels. Yes I could use that. (He's…
