Quilt With Us

Snow, Snow, Snow!!!

What a great quilting day this has been! Since I got out of bed the weather has been changing every hour it seems from snow to rain to light snow to heavy snow. Yesterday my DH was blowing leaves and today he's blowing snow. UGH! I guess that's what you get when you live as far north as you can in NW Wi. Forcast calls for more snow on Sun. This is getting to be way too much. Yesterday DH saw daffodil spears peaking through the dirt; they'll soon be peaking through the snow. I have more green in… Continue

CT order

Yesterday I received by first CT fabric order. I love it! I bought Irresistible Indigo 3 collection fat quarters plus some yardage of 4 of them for borders, etc. Now need to find time to use it.

Am quilting the eagle wall hanging I previously spoke about; it is really nice if I may say so.

Last weekend my DD and I went for a scrapbooking retreat in Chippewa Falls, Wi. Had a great time. I actually scrapbooked our wedding pics from 40 years ago; good memories. Wish I was… Continue

Spring: Lion or Lamb

Well, we've had some lions here in NW Wi but today and past 3 days we've had some lambs. Today was 60 degrees which is above normal. Hooray! Brown grass is poking through around trees and where the sun hits. My DH is waiting for all the snow to melt so he can begin raking; our yard is very large as we live in the "country" on 25 acres so he uses a powerful leaf blower for much of it. But,----this is not too late for another lion to creep in even into April. Last year we had a lion the day… Continue

Where'd the blizzard go?

The blizzard passed NW of us in NW Wi; we got about 4-5 inches. Northern Mn will get the most. DH is glad so he won't have to snow blow as much. We have a blacktop driveway which is usually black in the winter as well as the summer; DH blows and scrapes till it is black; he is so anal. It's something for him to do in his first winter of retirement. One summer a local acquaintance stopped and asked DH if our driveway was heated as it is black in the winter. It was a great day of quilting; just… Continue

Snow, snow, snow!

Snowing today; supposed to be blizzard conditions. This blew in from N Dakota and is now here in NE Mn and NW Wi. Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel was even in Duluth, Mn with weather reports for TWC. A good day to quilt. I am working on a wall hanging with flying geese star background with eagle in flight appliqued over the star. I am patriotic and my DH and I feel like eagles are messengers from our deceased son as an eagle flew over the cemetary when we buried him 7 1/2 years… Continue

Dick and Jane

Last week I happened upon a site with the neatest fabric which brought back early school memories for me; this will really date me. Those of you who are young will not even know who/what I am talking about. In first grade my reading books were about Dick, Jane, Sally, Puff, Spot, Mother, and Father; anyone out there remember them? On the site "Christa Quilts" I found Dick and Jane fabrics, many different selections from pics in the books to phrases from the books. I tho't Dick and Jane were… Continue
