My picture was from a birthday party for a friends 60th. We all had boas, hats and crazy stripped ties, and yummy catered food. Looked like a bunch of old folks in a speak easy...LOL.....but we had a GREAT time.

I'm a Mother of two wonderful grownup kids, a son Brett 39 and a daughter Shelley 35....wow where did the time go. With that came three beautiful granddaughters, Beth 7, Gracie 9, and Isla 10 and one handsome grandson Dakota who is turning 6 in April. I'm truly blessed. And of course, last but not least my wonderful husband of 43 years referred to by the grandkids as Big Mick.

I started quilting a several years ago as something I wanted to do before I die. I now have enough stash and kits to cover a fewwwwww lifetimes.....grin.

I bought myself a new hat to sleep in.  Yep, the head was getting cold.  I bought a black stocking cap.  Mick now calls me Gansta…

Here's one block My Dear Jane I-8.  If you click on my picture, you can go to my page and see what I've been doing. 

We are still in draught in Texas and have lost many trees and shrubs, but were spared the horrible fires at our house.  We have had three fires this year that were too close for comfort ranging from 2-10 miles away.  We have packed up twice.  The…

I read your comment about your sewing machine eating your block, and I have to agree that it is frustrating. I use a tip that a fellow quilter gave me when I first started quilting. She said to fold a rectangle of left-over material in half so that it is about 2" by 3". Use it to sew on when you finish a seam like assembly line sewing. Then you can use scissors to cut off your block from the scrap of material behind your pressure foot, bring the block to the front of your machine and start sewing from the scrap of material right onto your block again. It works just like assembly-line sewing except that you use this scrap of folded fabric and you can avoid having to start sewing a seam from nothing. Anyway it works for me and prevents jumbled up threads that I get sometimes when I start a seam as well. 


Good luck.
