Frozen mind

It's cold outside. I feel like the wind is blowing right through me and my bones are iced. I wonder how the horses are feeling if I am like this. Where is the sun?


I did not get to work on quilting yesterday and today the plans are to clean the room. Yuck, I know but I have to get unpacked from retreat and find my stuff. I'm still missing my Olfa circle cutter. It has to be around somewhere, I will not give up on it. I know I have my Singer button hole somewhere too. Those…

March already?!

Wow, I can't believe we're into March already!  Hopefully warmer weather and lots of sunshine are on their way for everyone! We did have quite a bit of snow in our area, which is nothing new, but I have been reading your posts all winter and am in awe at how much of the country got hit with so much of it this year, especially parts of the country that normally don't see snow.


I've honestly been really enjoying the photos you've been posting of all the things you've been…

new project

I've been busy working on quilts for our two great granddaughters, but needed to work on something else for a break - so I did this wallhanging yesterday.  It's called "Joe Cool" and designed by Chris Gilman... but I've named mine "Hector, Hector 2x4"  in memory of my Grandpa Smith :)

Quilt Crusin'

A Local shop here in Florida is trying to gather a group of quilter together for fun and quilting.  What I am wondering is has anyone out there ever been on one of these sort of retreats and what did you all think?  I like the idea of a week spent quilting and fun on the ocean.  But just a little unsure of how it really works floats out in the sea.

All about tagging photos. How to add photos to a slideshow searching 'everyone's photos' by keywords.

Do you want to search 'everyone's photos to find a similar technique or common theme with your quilts? Great news! You can add keywords when you first upload photos, or you can add keywords later by clicking on your existing photo, and then in the upper right side there is an "options" drop down menu. Click on "edit your tags."

We have had many requests on how to search everyone's photos with keywords. For a while,…

Too Much Starbucks Results In New Chapter!

So, there I was yesterday. Driving from one appointment to the next around central Indiana finalizing details for my upcoming retreat. Naturally, I had to stop at Starbucks...once, twice and hmm...I lost count after the third or fourth cup...anyway, let's just say it kept me going...all day and pretty much most of the early hours of today.

Although this wasn't so great for me, it resulted in chapter 16 of the novel for you! I went out on a limb here, so we'll see what becomes of it.… Continue

Water Color Quilt

I was going through some of my photo files and found this one and just wanted to share it with you.  Remember when water color quilts were so popular?  The two gals holding up the quilt (from my quilt guild) made this at retreat last October and decided to donate it so it could be raffled off to raise money for our local community center now being built.  Money is being raised… Continue

New view

I am early today and of course had to check out what is going on.  I started watching the photo screen.  I have seen quilt art work before  but never really saw it.  This morniing I fell in love with it.  I really can't believe what the ladies in the art group have done.  The pictures have

got me going on a new angle.  I am aiming to finish up some of my

'to do' pile and than I am going to try my hand at art quilting.  I should have lots of scraps by than. Have a great day.

Applique Away

I finished my April Calendar Block. I'm actually glad that I am doing the monthly block because a side benefit to ending up with a full calendar year worth of blocks I am also getting to test some new techniques in very small doses! I might end up with enough nerve to quilt a table runner after the year is through. I got to practice stitching down the applique in this… Continue

About bread

Hi Ladies! I know this is a quilting site and not about food, but I thought maybe the ladies who are creative with needles will be creative in the kitchen too? Lol! ;o)  My question is: do you have any ideas for filling bread?  I have to use french or other long breads, cut them into thick slices (not right through) and put fillings in.  Cold or warm. I have to make this for the "tea" after the World day of Prayer for women at my church. Thank you!
