Hot weather project!! Stayed where the AC was for 2 days and made this baby quilt out of 5" squares that I had in a bundle and added this 'funky' material. Was fun and really enjoyed doing it.
Well, yesterday was a cleaning day and I now have a dining room table you can finally dine at...and to think I always thought it was a cutting table! HUH!
and...that is my all time favorite 10 minute runner on there too...…Continue
Thank you all for the well wishes! I'm still just kinda sitting around -- but at least I have the two cats and the silly dog to keep me company. We're all hanging out in the lower level of the house, stayin' cool and stayin' outta trouble.
I'm not seeing much improvement at this point, but I am still at the start of the physical therapy. I'll probably need a flow chart to adequately explain this, but my younger daughter's best friend's mom is going to be doing most of the…Continue
We have arrived home from our holiday, which included a visit to the 36th annual quilt show in Sister's, Oregon. The show was fantastic; if you have never gone to it, you need to do so. My girlfriend and I arrived at 8:30 am and left at 5:30 pm. We did not get to see all the 1300 quilts on display around town everywhere. Most businesses had one or two inside and they hung on every building in every spot possible. Some of the buildings are two storeys high and the quilts were hung way up…Continue

Quick post before running off to see grandson's (age 5) first soccer game.
A new shopping site - one at a time 'deals' - when the product is gone, it is gone, and a new 'deal' comes up. Called, appropriately, "Flock Shop".
I am in sooo much trouble! Made my first purchase. They conveniently email you with each new item! Aaargh!!! www.karenstenback.wordpress.com for the website…Continue
Over my quilting years, I have purchased a lot of fabric and a lot of quilt patterns. And, I have fantasized about designing my own quilt patterns, and now actually have a couple almost completed.
I have also fantasized about designing my own quilt fabric. Now there is a site where I can do that - for what seems to be a pretty reasonable price, I can design my own fabric, purchase it, and have it available for others to buy, also. I went on the site and tried a little…Continue
for the most part any way. Over the last couple of days I have been moving material and such from the one room to the larger room. All that I have left to move is the longarm. Still holding out for him to come home and move the darn thing while I am at work. After all he moved it into the room, only fair he should move it back, and all the material stashed in said closet. I've posted the pictures on my page of both ends of the room. Sense all this moving started and he has been home…Continue

I had a wonderful time at our state quilt guild conference last weekend. Sharon Schamber (she's won in Paducah and Houston several times) has amazing quilts. I took a machine applique class from her. She was fascinating and fun. My best friend also took a second class from her and said it was even better.
The warning--hot iron + human arm = very painful burns. Don't try to balance a hot iron on a stack of stuff and carry it. OUCH!
Now I'm back, The garden weeds are out of…Continue
When my DD was growing up, a new McDonald's opened up in our town. DD pretty much learned her alphabet by recognizing the sign, and she would ask for 'hamgerbur' every time we drove by. She would almost always have one because it was affordable then. And we used to go to K-Mart and all the other stores along the way.
Every afternoon I pick up DGD from day care and we go by that same McDonald's, and she never said anything until yesterday. "Lola, I want to go to McDonald's", she said…Continue
Just stopping by to say hello. I trust your all having a great Summer, (in spite of the heat) in some areas. We are suppose to get in the high 80's tomorrow. Alright now, I can hear some of you who are experiencing triple didget temps. saying "poor you" in a very cynical tone. Actually I had to turn my ceiling fan off as I was getting chilly a few minutes ago. We are expecing a severe thunder storm this after noon.
My son is in the process of buying my house. I'm hoping it will go…Continue
I had to brag a little, hope you ladies don't mind. Alexa (my daughter) is trying out for Cenla Idol on July 30th. IF and that's a big IF (we're not getting our hopes up just yet) she wins Cenla Idol she will then go on to American Idol. This has been something she has talked about since American Idol became so famous. She said she's got to try or she'll never know and she needs to try before she signs on the dotted line to join the marines. So if you ladies could keep her in your thoughts…Continue
I never thought about taking those itsy bitsy pieces of fabric and making an arrangement of some kind until this workshop came about from our guild.
Firstly, there is no adhesive to the fabric. It's just sliced up into little bitty pieces for use on the picture.
Secondly, a simple pencil drawing colored with pencils reduces the complexity of an authentic picture. Basically a sketch of the original.
Third and last, using a thin batting, you just sprinkle your 'snippets'…Continue
