Good Morning to all. I have to say that this has been a very strange season for us in Michigan. It's been like fall the past two day's here. It has gotten do into the 40's at night. Although I love this kind of weather it really is not good for the garden. We need those hot nights for the tomatoes and my beans seem to be at a stand still. Oh well, I have gotten some sewing done. So this is a good thing. However, my DH is leaving for Arizona this Friday and I was unable to get his GS quilt… Continue

I want to thank everyone for their comments on the "blind laddder stitch" - I printed out the directions and figured it out in ohhh 5min. I am now almost done binding my first quilt and I must say that I have had alot of fun doing this. I know alot of people don't like doing the binding but so far I don't mind. You can see some of my stitches but that's ok.....DH say's that it just show's it hand made. LOL Well thanks again and have a wonderful day.

Hi all...I hope everyone had a great 4th....I have a question...while searching the internet I came across a lady who does the blind ladder stitch for her binding. Has anyone ever tried this? It looked pretty easy. She said that it did take alittle longer but I did like the results. Please let me know. Thanks and have a great day.

I know that this isn't a quilting subject but I am so excited...as of July 3rd I will be a "mom" to a 6 week old puppy...I have named her Maggie. Her mother stopped feeding the pups at 4 1/2 weeks so a friend took 2 of the puppies in and I will finally get mine next Friday.

As soon as I can I will post a picture of her. She… Continue

Here is a story that I couldn't wait to tell.
There I was standing in a very long line wondering why it was that I alway's choose the wrong line...
The answer came to me in a very funny way. Standing in front of me was two little old ladies just gabbing away about kids these day's. They just couldn't believe that Debbie almost blew up their moving home by lighting a match...What kids do these day's.. What about poor Vicky and her husband and what their daughter did to… Continue

My husband and I had my parents over for dinner. We had such a wonderful time with them. They are in their 80's and they still are full of life. I only hope that when we reach their age we'll be as active as they are. I had embroidered a pillow for my mom that said Mother and had a tea pot on it. It turned out so cute that I couldn't believe that I made it. She loved the pillow so much that it made me happy that I actually came up with something that she would love.
After dinner we… Continue
