For all who are having a birthday this week, I want to wish you each and everyone a very blessed day. I will be at the hospital with my DH for some tests and will not be able to post daily birthday greetings. I hate missing out on learning more about each one that has a birthday but there is no help for this.
Happy Birthday to you and I hope that you enjoy your special day.!!!!!!!
My daughter has wanted to make this carry-all/diaperbag for a while so we decided to work on it while they were here for Thanksgiving. We didn't get started until Saturday. It took most of the day but we finished it!
Okay, so now I am in a rush to get a rag quilt done for my mother-in-law who is in a care facility since September. I have only made two before with the input of a friend. I have been reading on the internet that you can use flannel for the batting, making it unecessary to stitch through the blocks. Has anyone any pointers with this?
Well, I am learning everyday I open my sewing shop. First of all I thought I would never get into quilting and have done very little. I have a Brother PR 600II six thread embroidery machine and always looking for things to do on it. I get a lot of oops, so when something goes beautiful the first time I want to tell someone. Last night I download a quilt embroidery design from Embroiderylibrary.com of a snowman. I am making a table runner and placemats out of preprinted snowman Christmas…Continue

Hello all! Havn't posted for a while but I do enjoy keeping up with all the rest of you quilting friends thru your blogs! This week we are having our Quilt Guilde Christmas Party. We have a yummy potluck and this year we are forgoing the usual gift exchange and will donate to the local Veterans fund instead. We decided none of us needed another exchange gift! Also, the 1st part of our 3 month block exchange is due. There are 21 participants so that is a lot of blocks to be made. Luckly, I…Continue

Ok I am trying to get some projects finished up. About five projects that need the binding finished up, but I seem to have a problem...a big problem....a 65 pound black problem! Matilda is just having none of it, she wants all my attention so I give up and will try another time.…
Yes I would like to know, what sewing machine do you use? What likes and dislikes. I can't afford a new machine yet, I wish I could but the bills dictate other wise, that and the dentist office. I guess no ones told them we are in a reccession. I have a Pfaff 2042 made for quilting but here lately it just isn't getting the job done. Seems that I spend a lot of time ripping seams to realine my edges in this quilt I'm working on and it's getting very frustrating. The sales lady said that it…Continue
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving--both the boys (men) came and the married one's a dad to be. I worked with my daughter-in-law on the baby quilt pattern she wants. I'm going to cut apart a printed panel and then sew it back together with extra triangles. You'll get to see it when I get it together. I hope our plan works.
Also ate, and ate, and ate--yummy but I really don't need those extra pounds.
The weather here has been awful--snow, ice, flights cancelled,…Continue
