Project completed

Finished a project---a bag to collect threads and little scraps while sewing and a pincushion to hold it onto the edge of the sewing table.  I used scraps.  I think I'll make one for gift exchange at Christmas party next Dec.

Spring, where for art thou?

Yesterday the thermometer in our back yard registered 91 degrees F.  Today it is supposed to be even warmer.  DH had me turn on the house ac this morning as he cannot take heat.  This coming Thursday the weather people say the high temperature for the day will be close to freezing.  Is it winter or summer?

Looking for M&M's

This is Brayden(3) he is looking for M&M's. I bought this advent calendar boxes years ago, but leave it up for the boys to find little surprises when they visit. Lately. I put little snack packs of M&Ms...I just love to watch them search and usually they say "not that one"!

Working on a special apron swap on our red, white, and blue group. We're exchanging 4th…

Dear Daughter

I have recently realized that a few things have changed.  For one thing I am much older than I once was when I could sit and do hand quilting for hours on end, after all I am a Grandma now. Having aquired a massive amount of knowledge (LOL here) in reguards to quilting, I have decided that if you want Aidens quilt before he finishes college that said baby quilt will have to be done by machine.

Having sent this text message to my DD the other day, I waited for her reply, which…

High Fiber—Progress on All Fronts

I've been spinning some Knit Picks Full Circle Spinning Roving in various colors. Currently, I have "Pigeon" on the wheel. Here are all the colors together:

All that's missing from the photo is the fiber currently on the wheel (although you can see some of the pale-gray "Pigeon" already spun in the basket), and the "Fawn," that was drying while I took…

Sundresses & Beach Views

The sundress I made our Miss Bailey looks so cute on her. I think she really likes it, don't you? Sound like, however, I need to make the bodice of the next one larger (size 7 bodice, size 6 skirt). She and her mom and dad are settling into life in Arizona just fine so far. Prayers for Adam's new business to do well would be greatly appreciated.

Spring has arrived

It's June again in NW Wisconsin.  Spring has arrived; if you saw our yard today, you wouldn't believe it's the same home I posted snowy photos of a week ago.  All that snow is rapidly disappearing.  Ice on lakes is beginning to melt or at least thin out.  Daffodil spears are about 4 inches high.  Robins have arrived.  Yesterday was about 70 and today mid 60s. Yesterday we had our first spring cookout; potato salad and hot dogs.  God is good!

Taking the Plunge

My boss is retiring and I've been planning a quilt for him. It's a Bargello and I've never done one before so I was a little hesitant to start. Today was the day. I got all my strips cut and started piecing. I have to say that so far it's going pretty well. However, as I say, I've just started. Will have to see how it goes as I get further along. I'd show you what I'm doing but haven't figured out how to add a picture here.

Jeep Thief

It's a beautiful day here in CNY, bringing most of us outside. My DH was in the backyard prepping to bathe our three dogs (bless him!!!). The garage door was open and DH heard the Power Wheels Jeep start up and bump into something. Then he heard a little voice say "I need help!". Our 2 yr. old neighbor Colton had snuck over to take the Jeep for a ride, but got it stuck in the garage! He's a determined little one!

I miss you guys...come back and keep posting....

There's no doubt that when you get three women in a room you're going to have a difference of opinion even if you love each other to death...put thousands on a website and you are bound to rub someone the wrong way on any particular day! That's why this site works...we share ourselves in all aspects of our lives. We have lost a lot of funloving quilters that used to post often or drop in and share their talents and life. We miss you and want to know where you've gone. Don't let a few…

To My Face Book Friends

My FB page has been hacked.  Whoever did this has sent out an email to my "friends" list inviting them to be my friend.  In addition to this invite they have said that I won some kind of lottery (I haven't seen the actual message) and it goes on from there.  Please, if you got this email BLOCK IT imediately. I have changed my password and trying to change my profile photo.  I haven't been successful doing that yet.  I don't like FB since they have switched to Timline.  So don't really know…

My Love For Thee

My Love For Thee is named after a vintage inscription that's in Baltimore Elegance, by Elly Sienkiewicz.  It reads: 

"My Love for thee, like roses,

Blooms within my heart

And like their lovely fragrance

Never will depart"

One will always wonder who it was that wrote this.  If you look in Baltimore Elegance, page 151, you will see the rest of the story.

This quilt was made from a photograph of a quilt that's in the Folk Art Museum in NYC.  I took the…

A Little Girl's fantasy

My granddaughter loves to come and play in my sewing room.  She'd always grab the drawers of threads, and while I'm on the sewing machine I could hear her playing with the spools of threads as children in a playground.  She also loves her tiny princess dolls, and one day she asked to use my camera.  She wasn't disturbing me so I let her play to her heart's content.  I heard the camera clicking and I asked her what she was taking pictures of;  "The Princesses are having their ball, and the…
