Shhhh Don't tell Aiden!

Posted on September 12, 2019 at 6:35pm 8 Comments

I gave my new embroidery machine a run for it's money last night.  Now I'm sure every one has an idea of what I am making for my grandson.  So far Mario and Bowser are finished.  I still have several more characters to stitch out but I will be getting them done within the month.…

Well I went and did it again

As some of you know I have been trying to make a quilt for my grandson.  The quilt part is finished but I needed to make some embroidered  designs to applique onto the quilt.  I had a singer quantum 6000 that I loved but the special bobbin for rewinding the bobbin thread broke and I couldn't find any online anywhere.  So that machine went bye-bye and I bought a Brother PE800 machine.  Well I have been trying and trying and trying to get my designs to stitch out without much luck.  Yesterday…

It's my weekend and hoping to get some sewing done.

Life in an RV is a little to cramped for me.  I have been working on a few things.  Besides buying a sitdown quilting machine, I also bought a new embroidery machine.  I've been working on some designs that I hope to get embroidered soon.  It's the quilt I've been planning for Aiden for the last couple years.  I've got the designs ready and hoping the in-laws will let me use their dinning table to work on.  If that works out I just might get the quilt finished in time for Christmas.  My…

What can I say now?

congrats to BJ on her quilt touring the country and to Pam for her post as well.   As for me, well I am sitting in a small RV.  We finally sold the house.  My other half is still waiting for L & I to do something about his back.  We didn't get as much out of our house as we expected to due to some shifty work by the mortgage company.  I am still working but between the 2 of us we just aren't getting enough to afford even an apartment in our area. Because this RV is so small, I just don't…

A Quilt for Aiden

Posted on April 25, 2019 at 11:41pm 5 Comments

Finally finished the quilt for grandson Aiden.  He picked out the floral print and the white fabric in the center of the blue blocks.  Sense they didn't quite go together I came up with this design and used the fabrics Aiden liked.  I hope that I will be able to get this quilted before christmas.  I start this project using a light blue that I ran out of after making half the blocks I needed.  Once I found the turquoise color I decided to start over and worked out the quilt below.  As for…

Kathy, sorry my recent post wasn't clear.  The Lone Star tutorial is one of Kaye Wood's and is rather long.  However, if you bear with her through the beginning, she does explain the piecing process and how she matches the seams. 

Always a challenge doing something new but so rewarding!

Hi Kathy! I hope the surgery went well and you are feeling ok.  :)

Kathy,  I saw your comment on the  Essential Pro Polyester thread and have a question.  How do you think it would work on a serger?  The price is definitely right.  It cost me an arm and a leg to buy thread for that darn machine when doing special projects.  With Luke here I see myself segering more and more and would love to find a good inexpensive thread.

Hi Kathy

We're about 15 miles west of Naches, as you head up towards Chinook Pass.  It would be a lovely spot for a quilt retreat, but the lodges are not geared for that. My quilt room, on the other hand, would do pretty nicely.

Hi Kathy...I looked up the new sewing machine that you bought and it looks like a nice one. I found a Brothers PC-210 PRW, a limited edition, that is exactly like my Crafter's Choice Baby Lock and it was a lot cheaper now that when I bought mine. I really love it. I wanted more space in the throat to quilt and saw a Husqvarna 140C that has a 10" throat. My DH was so nice and bought it for my birthday, which is coming up in about 3 weeks. What a guy. Have fun with your new machine.

1.suggest the lay away idea. 2. make the squatters get a job.3. charge a good price for your WONDERFUL quilts....do you have an ETSY site? something to consider :o)

You have a grandbaby on the way....focus on that....and your beautiful dd.

I would more then willing help you finish your quilts. I use flannel on many of my quilts, almost all baby quilts. It only cost $16.00 with insurance one way. I like using warm and natural. I charge about $10 a hour. If you are interested and since you know about how long it takes, send me a note to what you think the price would be if you are interested.

Kathy, you have a heart of gold. I don't know if I could be as generous as you are being for your family, can't image not having my space for quilting. Sure hope I don't have to make that choice although my only son has his mommy wrapped around his finger so I would probably give in too. Hope you can find a way to squeeze in your machine somewhere, you do wonderful work.

Kathy,,, I feel for you,,, as I am more or less in the same boat.  Think we can take our LA in the boat with us???  Our DD moved back home last week with her 2 boys, 13 & 2 1/2.  The boys will be sleeping in my sewing room.  Dismantling it after 20+ years is not my idea of fun or where I want to go!!!  LA is in the Florida room now covered with fabrics, projects and don't forget 2 of my 3 FW's.   Totes have been purchased, still don't know where they are going.   Still have to remove a dresser and my cutting table.   I hope I can find a place to work on piecing and my LA soon.

Just read your blog "Sigh" about the dogs and other adventures and how does anybody quilt.  Had a good laugh, sounds about right.  Our dog can't hear so when he decides to start barking, well, sheesh!  He's eleven years old and we've had him since he was a couple weeks old.  Hard to be angry when I get that soulful look  with all the grey hairs for eyebrows.  Gonna have to try that dart thing,LOL.

  BTW, you make some amazing stuff!
