Lost My Sewing Buddy

Posted on December 22, 2009 at 1:11pm 18 Comments

Just wanted to share with everyone that a few weeks ago I lost my one and only friend that sews. She died of COPD - she was 53 years old. I have to share one of my (now) greatest memories of her. She is/was a perfectionist when it came to sewing. She had divorced a few years back and was not as blessed as I was financially. So when I decided to take an "official" quilting class in 2005 - I bought two of everything and registered us both for the class (this way she couldn't say no). About the… Continue

Interested in your Thoughts

Any one have any opinions (strong or otherwise) about pressing seams open. I recently tried it because the squares in the blocks of the quilt that I am working on right now are very small. My points and matching seams are looking great. I was just wondering if there was history or logic about why NOT to press seams open?

Hi Everyone - just wondering if anyone can recommend some good patterns for christmas stockings. My son-n-law has asked me to make stockings for the whole family for this year. (he married my daughter who has a son - he brings two daugters and a son - and they just had a son together). So I'm thinking I better get started searching now - that's 7 stockings to make.

Hubby was a trooper!!

Well, we just got back from our vacation in sunny California (however it remained pretty cool along the coast). I managed to make it to 6 different quilt shops in four different cities in two days. I must say - my husband was a trooper. He went in to every shop with me and didn't complain much at all. He didn't even bark about how much money I spent - I love that man!! We went to Wine Country quilt shop in Paso Robles; The Quiltery in Paso Robles; Sew Fun in Atascadero; Quilters Cupboard in… Continue

Youngest Daughter Leaving

Posted on February 28, 2009 at 10:35am 5 Comments

While I'd rather be quilting today - I'm actually cooking. Having a dinner tonight for about 18-20 folks. Ham, pork chops, collard greens, beans, carrot cake and more - yum, yum!! My youngest daughter, Shannon, 19, is leaving for Air Force Basic Training on Monday. She is following in the footsteps of her dad and her oldest sister, Breana, 28. Both served almost ten years in the Air Force. I am proud that my family serves, but I know I will miss her terribly. She is so much fun to be around… Continue

Hey Janice,
I never finished the hand quilting project...it has now become a UFO and has gotten lost amongst the clutter...lol!! I tried it, but it was too slow for me...I really appreciate those that can sit down and do it, but I am too impatient to hand quilt. It is a beautiful art, but not for me...lol!! I actually gave away the hoop, the book, and the needles and thread...so that's the grand finale on that one....will probably never revisit it.

Hey Janice, actually I don't hand quilt anything...All of my quilts were pieced and quilted on my HSM (wish I had a long arm, but of course, every quilter does...lol!!!) However, about a week ago, I purchased a hoop, some betweens needles, a cube of wax, and some hand quilthing thread....I am on my way to hand quilting my first quilt and I am scared as heck!! lol!! I just hope that I don't mess it up...I'll post a pic of it when it is finished sometime in the near future....by the way, I love your quilts that you posted...love the colors!!

Hi Janice,
The Christmas stocking pattern is a McCalls 4266. I made them for all my grandchildren. Lots of fun and really easy to sew. You will love it!
