November 27 - Cyber Monday

I hope you had a Spirit Led Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends.  I know I did.

I started to free motion quilt the cross quilt, but was totally disappointed, so I ripped it out!  I had not done very much, so it was not too bad.  I am now thinking about using my Flynn Quilt Frame.  But I am going to put it off until I get some Christmas projects done.

My husband told me…

High Fiber—The Help

Well, it was a busy week. No Vintage Stitchers, no Common Threads, but the H-word, Thanksgiving dinner, cooking, eating and guests. I did finish Vroni's turtleneck, though.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are having a warm Thanksgiving today. 60 degrees. Now some of you will shiver just thinking about it but we have already had snow and cold. This is great dog walking weather. They will not be joining us for dinner as we are going out. What they don't know won't hurt--right?

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Wishing Everyone a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm sure everyone is busy in the kitchen...we always host Thanksgiving. I am the only one in the family that likes to cook (and is the better cook)!! Bought gingerbread houses to decorate for the two grandsons. That should be entertaining. Also, putting two boxes together for two 8 year old boys in St. Croix for Christmas through Adopt A Family. We always take the grandsons shopping for charity, so this will be their project this year. 

Have a wonderful holiday with family and…

November 20 - Encouraging week

Our son, Ryan, and his wife, Erica had another check up on baby Avery this past week.  They had an encouraging appointment considering.  This is what Ryan texted us. 

"Ventricles working well.  Pulmonary valve at a -2.4 (z score) which is a little small, but good for a ToF kid.  They will continue to track the growth of the pulmonary valve.  Bridge of pulmonary artery are confluent - which is good.  Overall, good…

I'm back! Ok sort of.

Hello to all.  I haven't been here in months, June to be exact.  Just been busy working and playing with my grandkids.  Those of you who have read my posts may remember that my mom passed away last year and I was busy getting her house fixed and sold.  Sense then I really haven't been motivated to do anything.  

A couple months ago I got the idea to make a quilt for Aiden the older of the two grand sons.  I knew what I wanted to make and decided to check out the local sew and vac for…

Meet HootnNanny

I finished up another UFO I started a while back.  This was a freebie I found online.  It was a quick & fun project.

Nancy Zieman

As some of you might not be aware, Nancy Zieman from Sewing With Nancy passed away today after battling cancer. She will definitely be missed in the sewing & quilting community. I know she was able to tape 13 episodes of this season and the last one will be with her 2 granddaughters. I will definitely miss seeing her every week on our local PBS station.

Finished one of two Christmas gifts...

Our oldest grandson is a nascar fan. I found the scanned print of Jimmie Johnson on Ebay. He'll love it and will be a good lap quilt to wrap up in to watch the races. Have one more left to make the youngest brother. He is all army and camo. Have a great…

Nov 13 - Overall a good week

Feeling blessed.  No special reason other than I had a good week and was Spirit Led.

The organization I delivered the charity quilts to were very grateful.   They wish they had more, with winter moving in.  It does get cold in Texas.  Maybe not as cold as Montana or Maine, but for Texans, it is cold.  There are still many that are suffering still from the tornado that came through Van over 2 years ago.  I told the lady that when possible, I will try to make more.  Our Dollar…

Bargin scissors

I can't let a 60% off coupon go by without using it at JoAnn fabrics. I decided to get a new pair of gingher scissors. They were $59 and I got them for $28. Then, I got to thinking, is there a better brand out there that I am not aware of. What brand of scissors do you recommend? I'm always up for change!

November 6 - OH NO, November already!

Again, the Spirit Led me through the week.  

Again, I come asking for prayers.  Many of you have heard of the shooting in a rural town in south Texas.  If not, here is a link: http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/05/us/first-baptist-church/index.html

Parents lost children, children lost parents, the pastor and his wife (were out of town) lost their daughter and many of the…

Another published pattern!

This is "Pie Squared", the third of three quilts I designed using pre-cuts that has recently been published.

The pattern can be found in the September, 2017 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.

For this throw-sized quilt I used a combination of machine quilting and big-stitch…
