Well, the hand-quilting of the middle of the Spring Flowers quilt is done. Just the borders to go.
Finally finished the quilt for grandson Aiden. He picked out the floral print and the white fabric in the center of the blue blocks. Sense they didn't quite go together I came up with this design and used the fabrics Aiden liked. I hope that I will be able to get this quilted before christmas. I start this project using a light blue that I ran out of after making half the blocks I needed. Once I found the turquoise color I decided to start over and worked out the quilt below. As for…Continue
I have been doing alterations for many year but yesterday I was taking the hem out of a Winter coat and found in the whole width of the hem a black powder that looked like gun powder. I was up at the hall with friends and they agreed with me. So they suggested I call the police to check out the substance. I didn't have my phone with me so one of the ladies called. They came and said it was probably some rotted thin rubber that is sometimes put in garments and not to be alarmed. Has anyone…Continue
I'm doing pretty well. It's been about 3 1/2 months now since Dennis' passing. I have pretty much found my new 'normal' . I spent Easter down in Oregon with my son, but also visiting a very close friend who was just diagnosed with a type of glioblastoma. Hers is not operable at all. She hopes to start chemo and radiation very soon. It was good seeing her. I hope to get down again later in May.
Not much time or energy to be in my sewing room. I keep busy with three…Continue
The best part of Spring is all the pretty flowers! Luckily, we don't have allergies, so I have fresh flowers all the time. We had a very nice Easter with our son and his family! They surprised the boys with tickets to the first home Michigan game. As you can see, they are huge fans! I finished the tree skirt for a wedding gift in July. I am so glad to have that off the list. This week will be cleaning windows and screens now the weather is nicer. …Continue

The picture below is a pair of blocks I've been working on. the dark blue with the white center is only one of three different blocks that will be in the quilt. It may take me a while to finally get all the blocks put together but then I do have until christmas to get it finished. LOL Seems to me I said that about another quilt that I am working on for my grandson. still not finished with that one either. The 2nd picture is the first row of blocks to be put together.…Continue
Autocorrect has finally learned that steek and steeking are acceptable words in the English language. Its most common word to substitute (as in "change it to") is steak, with steep a close second. However, this is a steek:…
