I've been quilting since 1974 and have taken many fantastic classes and techniques through shops and guilds and have taught a few as well. I belong to 2 guilds but have rarely been so ahead on projects to get them in for show & tell before they are due to be gifted. Also I just get weird about receiving compliments, yes I know how to say "Thank You", but being on stage and the center of attention pushes my comfort levels sorely.

Normally I LOVE Connecting Threads, but not today! I purchased a kit on line “Bittersweet Briar”. Very pretty design…. Loved the colors! Didn’t read the “fine print” and was suposed to purchase a book with the design… I have never purchase a kit that didn’t have the directions with it. Anyway… I can work around that. Got the kit home and the colors DO NOT MATCH the photo!!! The fabrics I received were much…Continue
I would like to make some friends that quilt, sew and embroider. I have been doing handwork since I was young. I got away from quilting for a while, now I am going back to quilting to help me quit smoking and stay quit. I have smoked for 27 yrs. and now is the time for me to quit for good.
I have 2 totes full of…Continue
Yesterday brought out a couple of boxes of fabric - and found some blocks I had made don't know when. Have been squaring them up and will make a small throw for the living room. Will post a picture when I get the top put together. Also found some flannel left from nightgowns I had made for my granddaughters sometime in the past. These will make nice quilts for our nursery at church.
Just never know what i might find when I pull a box out of the closet!!! It is a good thing there…Continue
Please say a little prayer for my kids. DD is being mandatory evacuated from her home because of flood waters. One of my sisters and my brother have to leave their homes too.
then my DS2 called he is going to the Emergency Room , he has stomach pain and it has gotten worse throughout the day. I don't know which way to turn.
We have the majority unpacked now. I'm down to waiting for walls to be painted so I can hang things. We have the guest bedroom, the upstairs bathroom and the kitchen/entry left to paint. We only paint when hubby has a two day weekend and he only has them every three weeks.

It is for a 50th Wedding Anniversary so not really sure what I want accept for them to love it and to cheerish it for another 50 years together. All ideas are great appreciated.…Continue
Sorry I haven't been very active here - I've been too busy getting ready to move, and recovering from my knee replacement. It's been an extremely busy month for this girl! But I'm actually sitting here with nothing to do for the moment - my Vancouver house is rented, I found a house in the Seattle area, the movers have come and gone and they'll meet me at the new place tomorrow morning, so my cousin Joy and I are driving up very early tomorrow with my cats and all the fragile stuff to meet…Continue
The visit to Gardner Village was the big event of the week. Since spring wouldn't come to Park City...
...we took the group to where spring had arrived. Seven members of Common Threads packed into two cars and drove down the mountain to the restored village, mill and farm in West…Continue
It is a time to give thanks and remember those who fought to keep us free.
It is snowing outside as I write this. My geraniums tell me thanks every time I walk by them for not putting them outside last week. :)
Yep she's done it again. We have a new litter of pups. Last week, two girls and a boy arrived at the house. They are now a week old and all are doing fine. How you may ask could this have happened when I had my male yorkie fixed? Who would have thought that the male puppy they had last year (6 to 7 months old when this happened) could get mom pregnant? I was in denial for quite some time over this until she balooned up over the last few weeks. What was done was…Continue
