Oh me, oh my...do I have quilter's block or what?

Posted on June 1, 2011 at 6:42pm 10 Comments

I've just not made the time to sew or quilt and didn't have the hankering until I came across an old quilting magazine and remembered that I wanted to make a duvet cover. I thought well, that's easy enough to get my sewing blood flowing again. Well, I must have lost my marbles because this pattern doesn't make sense to me.


I've always bragged about the ladies on Quilt with Us and how helpful everyone truly can be so I thought this would be a safe place to post my dilemma so…


Thank You

I hope to be able to sit down tomorrow and write emails but just in case, I just wanted you all to know that I'm very touched by your kind posts and emails!

I started a water color painting, speech and swimming class so I've got to get my ducks in a row and get back into sewing/quilting. :)

Big Hugs!

January was so long ago but things are so much better now!

Right after my birthday in January, I started an accelerated Math A class that was followed by a Math C class. Boy! I'll never do that again but I did survive and got As in both classes. Whew!

And, then, after that, I went in for the much needed hysterectomy and oh, I feel so much better! Do you know I've been complaining to my doctors that my back would go out every month and they poo pooed me like I didn't know my own body! I finally found a specialist and he listened to me and… Continue

One good thing

Posted on January 15, 2010 at 4:34pm 1 Comment

I worked my hind end off and did get rest of the half of the diamond quilt strips cut and sewn but not sewn together...lol Anyways, I read a blog the other day that said at the end, one good thing today....

I have many and getting to quilt is obvious but one good thing today is that my home is surrounded blue jays, mocking birds, finches, wax wings, and honkers.

45 ain't so bad

I'm looking 45 square in the eye today and counting my blessings. While I was making my husband's lunch this morning, I was recalling when I turned 30 and I was laughing when I said to my husband that I really thought my life was over. He asked me if I was ok with turning 45 and my reply is 45 ain't so bad. (Yes, I said ain't lol).

Anyways, I going to fill my day piecing a quilt. I picked a challenging pattern with diamonds (eek) because I wanted to step out of my comfort zone. I… Continue

    Hope you are on the road to recovery ~ surgery always takes time to recoup.  Be good to yourself!!

    Am hoping to get Catarac surgery taken care of next Spring - can't get in to see the eye doc until Feb & I made the appt 2 months ago!  I blame my wonky eyesight when my quilting is a bit cock-eyed.    LOL

     Having a long-arm, I can imagine how busy you have been ~ especially if you quilt for other people!  Everyone wants "one more quilt" to be done by Christmas!

     I would love to have a long-arm, but can't stand....but I don't mind sharing my quilts with long-armers.  Provides me with more time for the "creating process" - my favorite part!

     My Blended Trip Around the World quilt is the last one I made....now I'm working on my stack of UFO's.  Just completed #35 out of 49.....the majority of them are baby quilts, which will be donated (Newborns In Need, Crisis Nursery, and a Mission in South America). 

     The Blended Trip, which I already made has over 3,600 pieces in it.  The 9-patch blocks are 3 inch finished blocks.  It was definitely a fun 'winter project'.  Am eyeing up my Christmas fabrics, wondering if they will be too busy for another one of these quilts - on a smaller porportion.

Okay, now I know where you are! Yep my hubby is a keeper for sure. The tool board was made from scrap and wood trim from our remodel. Our home was originally built in 1931 and we have been renovating it since we moved into it in 2000. It only had on bathroom, baby blue, and that just was not going to work. So we took one othe bedrooms and changed it over to a master bathroom and walk through closet. Then we worked on the kitchen, did a total gut job and reinforced the studs, etc. before replacing all the appliances and cabinets. Then did a modify on the dining room. Then switched the guest bedroom and my sewing room, so the guest bedroom would be closer to the guest bath, put in engineered flooring, paint, etc. Then the hallway, quiltroom came next with hardwood flooring, all the built ins, etc. Then we just finished our masterbedroom with new cabinets, paint, etc. Our final project will be the living room, which faces our Lake Killarney, with new hardwoods, a new fireplace and cabinets on either side for storage minus dust since we have 5 critters who bring in A LOT of dust. We do these projects as time allows and cash is available and we do it ourselves. Or I should say, my hubby does most of it, but I help as much as I can. Well, now that I have talked your ears off, have a great holiday, hope to hear from you again soon!

I grew up in Brentwood, just south of Antioch and north of Stockton. My folks lived there until their move to Bethel Island, northwest of Brentwood on the San Joaquin River. I am not familiar with your town, though, where abouts are you, say from Sacramento?

Happy Birthday! Believe me, 45 is nothing. After all we all get older one day at a time. Hope your birthday is filled with all that you love.
