In spite of an incredibly busy week, I managed to bind off the "Which Came First Shawl."Continue
We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.
It has become like family here and the thought of losing the…Continue
You may remember our Air Quality Index reading last week of 525 (September 12), which was "Hazardous." By Wednesday, we were down to 264.Continue
Like others, I'm seeing that this site may shut down. I hope not. It has been a great place where we have developed friendships for many years.
The smoke from the fires has dissipated from here, at least for now. We still have a fire burning close by, but it should not affect us here at the Ranch unless lots of heat and major winds come back for a few days.
I should be moving to an apartment here on the Ranch the end of October. It is brand new, except for the outer walls.…Continue
Are we going to lose "Quilting With Us"? I got a message that this Network is at risk of being disabled.
A finish. Finally! I think the edges are rippling some because the binding may not be 100% cotton. It was something in my stash inherited from a great-aunt. She was quilting in her later years (the 1970's) with whatever was available. And history is repeating itself, because that's what I'm doing now, too. This one is going to a sweet baby girl in Idaho. Machine pieced. Machine quilted (domestic machine). This quilt completely used up several of the prints here. Stash busting…Continue
I really want to finish my whole-cloth quilt this year.Continue
Has anyone else had their friends list on their page deleted? I had three pages and now I only have 6 people on it.
Hello, I’ve been debating posting on here for several days and finally decided to write. I’m in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and we’ve had wild fires since last Monday night. We were on level 2 ‘get set’ at one point. Our future daughter in law’s family has all been evacuated from their homes. As far as we know, none of them have lost their homes at this time, but they haven’t been allowed to go back to check. I would really appreciate prayers from…Continue
I'm sitting here like a bump on a log. It's 6 a.m. and I hope I get more ambition then I have right now. I haven't had time this week to work on my quilt. Hope to make some progress on it today. Yesterday I cleaned out the fridge. I found stuff in the freezer that had been there so long that a package of chicken looked like dried Cod. And the pork chops looked the same. I need to go get my meat the day I want to cook it. There are three stores within walking distance so I have no excuse to…Continue
I've been working on my whole-cloth quilt while watching Star Trek: Voyager in the evenings.…Continue
The Which Came First Shawl is inching along. …Continue
I’ve been wanting to make a vintage hankie quilt for awhile now. Last December, I bought 5 vintage Christmas hankies from a friend’s antique shop. The hankies are hand appliquéd on the background fabric. It’s machine pieced and hand quilted and is 55” square. …Continue
I may be crazy but it works for me. I decided to fill the border of my broken arrow quilt with another calligraphy design. Yes I know they look like a jigsaw puzzle but they will all come together for a 96 inch border
This week I made overalls for Emil.…Continue
Here's a new cap for Emil:…Continue
I hope you all are escaping the Covid 19. Here in Calais we haven't had any cases but we wear masks, gloves and stay home as much as we can. I hope this pandemic will blow over soon so we can get our lives back to normal. I'm beginning to wonder if we will ever see normal again. Down State has has quite a few cases but it's more populated and nearer to other States. Our bridge into Canada has been closed for months.
I keep busy. I have a neighbor who needs help with cleaning her…Continue
A couple of years ago my brother Mike asked me if I ever saw fabric with tractors on it. I told him I would keep an eye out & let him know if I ever found some. I visited a local quilt shop & saw this panel along with 2 others. I liked this one the best as the old barn reminds me of the old barn on the farm where I grew up in Michigan. I sent him a picture & he liked it so I told him if he would buy the fabric, I would supply labor & batting as a 70th birthday gift. I…Continue
