Spring time

Hi friends,

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…

Happy Springtime...

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. …

Finally something to show

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.…

High Fiber—Steek, Not Steak!

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:…

Happy National Quilting Day

Have you all been quilting today?  I have been making labels that will go on the backs of Quilts of Valor quilts.  I was going to baste a quilt, but didn't have the right size batting & didn't want to cut into a larger one.  I should just order 60" Quilters Dream cotton by the case as that is my favorite size as I can machine quilt them with no problem.

just a little ranting

I bought a new Brother sewing machine almost 2 years ago.  I've been working on the applique project posted earlier.  Suddenly the darn machine doesn't want to work right.  I tried cleaning lint out, changed bobbin, re-threaded I don't know how many times to no avail.  I called the store that I bought it from and they said I could bring the machine in and that they would look at it.  I asked how much sense it was over a year old.  $179.00  Hummmmm I'll fix it myself thank you very much.   …

Wedding Quilt - a modified and finished UFO

This quilt was modified from a lap quilt to a queen.  Started with CT's pattern "Cabin Life" (I believe) and their flannels from that time.  I'd ordered extra fabric at the time, knowing I planned to make it larger.  I'd put together the original size back when I first got the pattern/fabric, but hadn't gotten around to finishing it.  I wanted to gift this for a wedding quilt, so a couple of weeks ago, I pulled it out and started working on it again.  …
