My morning view

Posted on June 29, 2014 at 5:02am 12 Comments

I live on a canal to a private non sports lake.  This is what I saw when I let the dog in this morning.  He/she was in my yard, but decided to move next door.  We see a lot of wild life, and horses across the road.

My youngest DGD, age 7,,, just competed in her first state meet in gymnastics.  She took first place in 3 out of the 4 events, and  2nd in the 4th event.  Also took first place all around, and is now New York State Champion for level 3 age 7.   She is something else.  Her sister competed in her soccer tournament this weekend,,, and did just as good.   So proud of these girls!!

Nate, our 4 year old grandson, who lives with us, wanted cookies.  I told him I would make them tomorrow.  During the day, he kept asking if it was tomorrow yet.  I told him he would have to go to bed, then it would be tomorrow.  My big mistake there!!  He came to me later,,, said I went to bed,,, where are the cookies???  So guess I will be making some cookies today.   Have a great day everyone.  More snow in Michigan.

Another UFO done

I just finished the binding on this UFO from 2010, one of my most recent UFO's.  Design was from a book by Lynn Roddy Brown.   All done in civil war reproductions from my stash.  No, it did not deplete it, it grew even more.  143 different prints,,, each block has a reverse block.  Quilted on my HQ16.  A close up view is on my page.…


another year

Posted on July 26, 2013 at 11:14am 11 Comments

My husband and I are celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary today.  Boy, has time flown.  These last few years have been a trial that all people go thru eventually,,, my FIL  passed a little over 3 years ago,,,  my mom was put in a nursing home in April with early stages of dementia, and my dad is now 91 and living on his own.   His baby sister passed in June and that really hit him hard.   I cherish each and every day I have my parents with me and my DH by my side.

DD and our 2…

Lynne - thanks for the nice comment on the baby quilt.  I completely agree with you about the larger sizes of baby quilts.  It just makes sense to have them a little oversized so they can grow with them.  This one definitely "baby" sized.

Hi Lynn, to use chat just click on Main Room and type in your message and hit enter. If you want to do a private chat you can click on the name whom you want to chat with. You will see an arrow with three options. Choose "start chat". A box will come  up and when the person you want chat with see's it they can respond to you. The one thing I don't like about this chat system is it shows everyone on line and many people are not interested in chatting.  Keep trying there are a few of us who love to chat.

 Thanks for writing, Lynne.   I was born in Flint MI and lived in Clio as I was growing up.  I have lived here in the UP 40+ years now.   I have a dear friend in Grand Blanc.  Your quilts are beautiful.  I started almost 5  years ago when I retired.  So many quilts, so little time!   I piece mine and have the LQS quilt the big ones.

Lynne, there's no time like the present to start BG.  But before you do, you should google Cynthia Collier (or Cynthia Collier Quilts on Facebook) to see how she did hers.  It was absolutely awesome.

Thank you so much for the information...I like to include the name of the pattern on the label...Wow, you really hit the jackpot! You will have many projects to complete...can't wait to see pictures.

Lynne, thank you so much for your directions.  I've been having a few complications with the eye surgery so reading or stitching has to be discontinued for a bit.  Think I'll pull out some large paper piecing that I've been hoarding for a couple of years.  Surely that won't strain my eyes.  Sheesh!

That is so funny Lynne!  I need to start working on my poor memory.  LOL

Thank you, Lynne.  Have fun antiquing.

Lynne, can you tell me the sizes of the pieces and the setting triangles?  I think I'd like to make one out of my hand dyes.  Really, this quilt of yours really inspired me :D

The last 2 times I was in, Rick did the fix for me as I watched and didn't charge me for anything but materials.  The first time I had broken the lower belt on my Bernina 730 (I have 2 of them...it's my favorite machine)...and when I told him, he just opened it up and replaced the belt.  I was in again a few weeks ago (same machine) because something was making a horrible noise.  It turned out that trying TriFlow wasn't my best idea and he oiled the machine, showed me where to oil the bobbin winder (which after sewing on the machine for 40 years I didn't know about) and told me to go home and run it.  When I asked if he thought it would be a good idea to give it a tune up, he said no...that the machine looked beautiful and he supposed I didn't do much sewing on it.  When he heard that I used it 8-10 hours a week, he said that I take very good care of it.  He has never tried to sell me a new machine.

I have the 2 730's (one from 1964 and one from 1974), a Singer 201 (1940), Singer 301 (1950's), Singer 503 (I think...this one is my least favorite and gets the least use...1970's on this one) and a newish Serger...which I use very rarely.  I figure that a treadle is in my future.  I also have a Singer 15-something that is not functional and a Singer 99 that isn't functional.  Those 2 are my "display" machines...the old black machines are so beautiful! 

There is a vintage singer Yahoo group that is a great group of people...and I have found parts for my machines through them.
