It may have been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, but not at my place.
As I'm sure was the case with most people, especially in…Continue

I spent my birthday plotting out a new chart for a smaller doll sweater. I've been knitting it this week. I'm already almost to the neck.
It should have…Continue
I finally finished the last quilt that I posted a picture of. Although the top is done I won’t be able to quilt it until I can get the baking and battling pinned together which I did try to do but in an RV with very little room it didn’t come together very well. So it’s bagged up and I’ll be putting it in storage until I can get it done. In the mean while I’ve been trying to make up my mind on which quilt to make next I have the picture below of 6 different quilt designs that I like…Continue
I want to wish everyone a very happy 2021. 2020 was a miserable year, but hopefully this one will be much better.
It's been quite some time since I've been here. I switched back to my old ISP and up popped CT blog posts! I can't believe I actually got my original e-mail address back. I've been sew2pcs for more than 20 years and thought it would be a miracle if I could get it again. Looks like folks have been busy being creative! I've been in a lull for the better part of 6 months and haven't done much. But, I am beginning a new quilt, my own…
Just to catch up on the quilting:
I'm working on the swag now, and I'm right at the first corner. In some places the cross-hatching right above the swag needs to be completed. Soon I'll be finishing the outer edges, and it's going faster, now that the book is (mostly) out…Continue

To start off, here is some actual quilting:
With some of the other projects done, I've been able to get some quilting done, in spite of the…
Made this for my daughter. She loves Fall and always hosts a pumpkin carving party around Halloween. Except this year of course.
This is my first Christmas in my new apartment. What a great place it is. I've been baking goodies in my fabulous to work in kitchen. I even sewed some small bags for some gifts. My sewing area is at the end of a wide hallway, under a window and even though it is a small space it is delightful for sewing.…Continue
Wow! Santa read one of the lessons at church on Sunday! Seriously!
It really is Santa, as you can see in this…Continue

Hi All! Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I was busy for two weeks stitching these stuffies up for my two little granddaughters. I used such good fleece that my machine wouldn't sew through it to attach the arms, legs, and ears. So I had to hand stitch those in. But it was definitely worth the effort. I love how they came out. …Continue
Mr. Truly Me 74 (real name to be determined when he reaches his new home) is almost ready to go.
I bought most of his clothes, because I've been pretty busy, but I did…Continue

The past week is just a blur. Looking at my photos helped, however. I remember that I made a hat for Pippa to go with the pajamas, though.
I made the hat so I could have a…Continue
It was very exciting when the books arrived. I was phone banking for Reclaim Our Vote when they arrived in two boxes that were hard to lift. This is only about half of them.
I was very nervous when I looked through one copy, but everything seemed to be OK. Then I went to Amazon to check…Continue
Here's my latest slow-stitching project. Been working on this for many many evenings in front of the TV. Two views, one butterfly:…Continue
