The previous post showed a picture of part of the quilt block that I have been working on. I thought everyone would like to see the finished block. The center is off by a little bit but I'm not perfect and I can live with it. Besides from a distance you would never notice. The alternating block for this quilt will be just the center pieced ring without the four corners.…Continue
I have been working on a new quilt top this month and after cutting and sewing and pressing, when it came time to put the units together, hummm they didn't fit. Yes I wasted a lot of material figuring that out. I had decided earlier this week to give up on the pattern but I thought I would give it one more try. I reworked the pattern and this time I cut only enough pieces to try this corner out. I know that if I could get this part fixed the rest of it would come together. This time it…Continue
Being my day off work I decided to get out and enjoy the last day of our summer here in the northwest. I hit the coffee shop for my latte, stopped to visit my old boss, and made a couple stops at stores along the way. one of the stores was the local Joann's fabrics.

So I finally started working on some projects that have been sitting around.
The other half has a daughter and two grand kids that live in what use to be my sewing room. His daughter really should have taken parenting classes. Sometimes I feel like I spend more time watching her kids than she does. These two little girls can get into things faster than a bolt of lightning and then they fight between themselves which brings on the screaming match. This doesn't bother the mother of…Continue
Just got off work a little while ago and thought I'd do a little on line shopping here but I can't get to the page.
I was wondering if any one else is having a problem with this. I clicked on the Winter's Evening picture on the side of the page here and got to that page but when I try to go to the main fabric page or any of the other tabs on the page I get error message. So Is it just me or is anyone else having this problem?
