High Fiber—All Dolled Up

It’s always busy with a puppy in the house. However, I did get a little knitting done and some Christmas shopping.

I ordered two boy dolls for our older grandsons, both four years old. The dolls came from My Sibling and My Pal…

Naomi's Quilt

Added by Sandra Copeland on August 28, 2016 at 6:13pm — 9 Comments


Hi all! I hope everyone is enjoying what's left of summer. Soon the leaves will start turning and we will be able to enjoy all the colors and cooler weather! 

I was inspired by Irene and cleaned my sewing room a month or so ago and since then I cannot stay out of there! It's so clean and I know exactly where everything is and surprisingly enough I have kept it that way. When I finish a project I clean and put away before starting the next. I literally feel like I have a whole new…

One day I will learn when to say when!?

In our last episode I reported that I had gotten sunflower seeds from grandson.  I now have a play date (Thursday) with Aiden and Lucas.  DD called yesterday and put Aiden on the phone.  I had just gotten off work and wanted to go home and put the feet up for a bit.  Dear little guy wanted grandma to come over and play.  I made a date with him for Thursday.

I now have time for this sense my  moms house is now finished and up for sale.  Personal cost for this endeavor, endless stress…

High Fiber—Summer Fun

The trip to Wisconsin involved a lot of puppy care, but I managed to get some knitting done.


I finished Daphne Jr.’s Aran sweater while in Wisconsin. Here is Dolly modeling it. (I had to drag her away from trying on all the clothes I made for Daphne Jr., some of which…

Enjoying the last weeks of Summer...

Where does the time go? We have had a great summer at the lake. The water is in the high 70's so no more creaming to get in! There are 5 of us that meet at two o'clock to swim for an hour and yeah a little gossiping!!! Someone has to spread the lake rumors! We went to the neighboring town to get PA peaches. They are so good…the corn is in it's prime. I will put NY sweet corn up against any…hot days and cool evenings make corn, apples,and grapes grow!

We are headed to Nebraska over…

Summer Catch-up

Without a doubt, this has been one of my least productive summers.  Although I have many projects sitting, waiting, I just can’t seem to get up and get at it.  But, I continue to knit socks and drool over the stunning scarves in the latest KnitPicks catalogue.

I did manage, however, to finish one quilt.  I started getting the free patterns for it from Silver Linings Originals in her monthly newsletter in January of 2015, but didn’t start working on them until about September.  Truth…

Public apology

I would like to publicly apologize for posting a photo that I'd seen on social media to this main page.  I thought it was a humorous staged photo that was poking fun at quilters.  It was not, and it caused pain to someone.  For that I am truly sorry.  I meant no disrespect and would never intentionally want to hurt someone.  I hope CT Admin would pass along my sincerest regret.

High Fiber—Dog Days of Summer

We just got back last night, and I'll write more about it, but here's a taste of the puppy fun.

The pups shared Rocky's toys and slept in their crates side-by-side in our trailer. The third night of our trip found us in a lovely park,…

Special present for grandma

Meet up with DD and the grand kids this morning after work

Aiden had a special gift for me, with a little help from mom.  I saw this and his explanation was so cute.

"Dig a hole plant the seeds and water, water, water."  The instructions on the back of the package were plain as day.  I understood them perfectly! 

Made me smile, hope your day is just as beautiful.…

Something of Interest to Quilters.

I don't know if you have heard of TAFA. Today they put on a group which I think a lot may find interesting.
It is a You Tube.
So if you go on You Tube and put in "Fine Cell Work"
It is an organization that works with prisoner in the UK.
To me this is a worth while cause and shows the beautiful work the prisoners do.
I will be interested to hear your comments.

What To Do With The Quilt?


I haven't visited this site for quite some time.  Looking over the blogs, I see some of the 'old friends' on here, it's been good catching up.

I'm not sure if this picture will download, but here is my dilemma.  Our youngest son, Colin was engaged to be married.  The engagement lasted 11 months and they were to be married June 4, 2016.  Problems…

High Fiber—Hand-pieced Quilts I Have Known

As I am on vacation and may not have access to the Internet when I usually post my blog, I’ve prepared a couple of special posts for the Mondays I’ll be gone. 

The first has to do with my hand-pieced quilts. This is one I developed, combining a quilt pattern I saw on…

latest finish

My guild always holds a quilt show at the end of September.  The theme for this year is anything reminding you of the 1930's.  Although I didn't start this little quilt (22" square) until after I ended up with a torn retina in my left eye 4 weeks ago, I managed to get it pieced and hand quilted.  I will probably add more hand quilting later, but it is due on Tues so I did what I knew I could get done.  This will be hung as part of a challenge exhibit.…

Sweet boy

Our daughter was expecting a little boy in mid-October.  Well, he apparently decided he didn't want to be a fall baby and made his unexpected appearance July 25th at 27 wks, 5 days.  

I received a call at 2 a.m. Friday (July 23rd) from DD saying her water broke and she needed me to come stay with Son #1.  I left immediately to make the 3 hour journey.  In the…

Ever gotten stuck? gotten stuck? gotten stuck?

  Hello quilters!

  There's something about joining a quilt guild, you join because you want to get to know other people who like quilting, but at the same time you get the feeling that its almost taboo to ask a question about how to do quilting.  Same thing if you take a quilt class, ask a question and everyone…

High Fiber—Fiber and Pups...With a Twist

The spinning for Tour de Fleece is done. I finished the second bobbin of the lovely Waimea Rooster merino/Tencel fiber from AlohaBlu. Here are the two bobbins, within 1 gm of each other in weight.

Then I got out my expensive lazy kate.…
