Ok so it takes forever to cut or piece a quilt usually for me seeings that I don't have a great attention span to begin with. I bought fabric 2 weeks ago for a baby quilt for a family member. I have finished piecing the top of it and will get a picture up as soon as I can. I am happy that I did well, and that it's pieced. I am still leery of how I will do quilting it but I just have to. Babies are so cute and important! I used classic pooh fabric for the main blocks, and then solid flannel for… Continue

So Surgery was December 18th, and it's now almost 3 months later. I am still having some issues, but I have 3 babies in the family on the way, so there is no time to horse around. Quilting is coming back slowly in my life, and I just have to remember little sittings at the machine at a time! I love you all very much and thank you so much for the support! I have started on quilt number one and it's a very simple pattern. When i get it done i will put up… Continue

So I haven't been around much because I am working on purses for a craft fair next weekend. I appreciate the fact that it's starting to become fall also, the porch is cooler and thus more time to work on quilting! I hope everyone is doing alright. I have put pictures up on my page of one of my purses!
Quilting Hugs and Love,

Sorry i havent been on in forever, i have just been busy with life. My husband just got rehired at his company in the past 2 weeks. Things have been busy and hot which makes it hard to sew on the porch because it's all windows. I have been working on purses and quilts to sell right now, and hoping that it works out well because that means i would have to actually have a job without having to leave the house. I miss everyone and once the awful weather of fall and winter comes… Continue

Hi All!!!! I am leaving on Friday to go home to see the family! I will be gone until the end of the month. All the quilts will have decent pictures taken of them so I can up them up here on the web.
The D/H is driving me absolutely CRAZY! I think the vacation will be good for us both. Though I have to say am a bit angry with him at the moment so time apart will be great.
I hope everyone has a good rest of the week and a good holiday! Love everyone, Quilting hugs and love!… Continue

So there are 2 new pictures up on my page and that's part of why I haven't been around a lot lately. I am making lots of mother's day projects and the two blocks are scrappy blocks and they are made of 1.5" x 2.5" pieces that are sewn together and then 2.5" x 2.5" squares. There are 9 pieces in each small block and then each of the actual what they consider "blocks" is made up of 4 of the smaller blocks. It is a 3x3 block quilt, so there are many many little pieces in the quilt! But I am… Continue

I promise that I haven't disappeared. I have been diligently working on mother's day projects. I have 2 tops done and am working on my next top for my grams quilt. Lots of little pieces. I have to start sewing on my moms but i have so many projects and so little time. I wish that there was a Quilt 911 to call for help when you need piecing help!!! Ahh well more work ahead and I will check in again when I have a couple minutes!! Quilting hugs and love all!!!

So lets see. The top of my Aunt's quilt for Mother's Day is done. Now I am working on the wedding quilt top. After that I am going to piece my Mom's quilt together, and then my Gram's quilt top. Once all the tops are finished I am going to quilt them. I believe that all the quilting will be simple yet pretty. I am probably going to use bright color thread on the batik quilts, and less on the regular, and am hoping to have them all done by the 3rd week in May when I go home for a vacation.… Continue

Well another rainy day here in upstate NY. BAH HUM BUG!!!!! I think that after I get done with dinner I will finish piecing the quilt blocks that match my current picture. They are bright happy fabrics and am hoping that will help. I hope that everyone is having a decent day and the weather is better there... Quilting hugs and love! ~Em

OK so this is like my family and I am going to be honest and admit that I've been a little depressed as of late and it is making it hard to work on projects. Part of it has to do with medication change for my bipolar, and part of it I think has to do with fibromyalgia. I will get outta the funk and I think the new CT fabric that just showed up at my door today with a new book will help.
I got a box from CT today of Audrey's Kitchen Sampler that came today. On top of that I got a new… Continue

So the fog and the fm have gotten to me over the past week. I wish that I could say that I have been productive, but that isn't the case. I am going to try and be a bit more productive this week but there is no guarantee of that unfortunately. I am going to try and finish the quilt top for my god mother. Then on to my mom's. I have placed an order here at CT and am waiting for that to get here and then I can start my gram's quilt top. Once I have the three of them done I can start on the… Continue

So tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and it's also my 5 year wedding anniversary. Everyone that I have ever talked to says that if you can make it though the first five years with your partner then you can make it through anything. My DH has been one of the most supportive and loving partners that anyone could ask for. He has been supportive through all the medication changes and mood changes due to meds and the worsening of my fibromyalgia. I hope that EVERYONE has a DH as wonderful as mine. Happy… Continue

So there is a new picture of a wall hanging in my photo slide. It is somewhat hard to see the fabric in it, but it is tattoo type fabric. It is for my dh's brother's tattoo room. It is a wonderful pieve and it turned out far better than i thought that it was going to lol!!! take a look if you're interested!!!
