High Fiber—Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!

Christmas was good, but my birthday, which started at a few minutes after 10:00 PM, which was a few minutes after midnight in Florida, where I was born many, many years ago, sucked! Well, this was supposed to be the "Big 70." It was, actually 70, but it was by far the worst birthday of my life, if you don't…

Happy New Year

Happy new year to everyone. Hope 2013 is good to everyone. It is not starting off to great for our family. My bil was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Saturday and it is not good. Prayers would be appreciated.

A Special Meaning Update

I was able to work on the pin cushion today.  I sat down and didn't get up until it was finished.  I think it came out so cute and I can't wait to give it to my sister on Sunday when we celebrate our Christmas together! :D

I know she's going to LOVE IT! :D

OOOOOPS, I just realized I forgot his cute…

Liam, Gustav & Percival,wee mini sock people or peeps even.

Teeny tiny sock people made of newborn socks.  These little sweeties are all hand sewn with hand embroidered features and teeny tiny little buttons.  Definitely NOT child safe, these wee critters are for children past the point of chewing faces off dollies.  Each tiny person is about 2.5…

Macie's First Quilt Block

Good Morning all!!  I enjoyed quality time with my 9 yr old granddaughter, Macie.  I asked her if she wanted to make a quilt and she was very excited.  We sorted through scraps of fabric from previously made quilts.  This is the fabric that she chose for the first block.  Her quilt is going to be made of many different colored quilt blocks, mostly from already cut squares…

Happy New Year to all

Just wanted to tell everyone Happy New's Years even if I am a little early.

Things have been up and down in this house lately.  DD had the "HUGE" blood clot in the leg earlier this month and spent 5 days in the hospital.  I think my last post was about getting to babysit my DD.  I did spent a week after work and weekends visiting her and helping her get up and around abit. She had a visit with her regular doctor who told her to get up and move around more.  Her leg is now back to its…

Retired Fabric Line?

Happy New year to all!

I'm usually a blog "reader" but I have a question regarding connecting thread fabrics.  I want to make my grandson a quilt using the fabric line Mastermind from connecting threads but find they no longer have all fabrics on the website.  This was the fabric with circuit boards/gears/and robots on it. Was hoping there was some way to find a selection of these fabrics to make a quilt for full size bed. Would like to…

Home again!

I had a fabulous time being grandma for the week before Christmas. My grandson was being bitten at his daycare and his parents couldn't get it resolved with the daycare owner so they pulled him out. I had lots of one-on-one time with the little guy and was in a coma by the time they got home from work. I was a lot younger when I was a toddler's mom. Great fun. My husband arrived a few days after I did. Older son arrived a few days later--then Santa. What a fun holiday.

Real life now.…

Things have slowed down now and I can finally get back to my sewing.  I have signed up to be a guest blogger at Buzzing and Bumbling on January 8th.  Many have signed up so there will be a lot of blogs to visit. We can make what ever we want and I am making a throw quilt.  Hope you mark in down and join in on the hop.

This was made for a special lady in my life that I have watched grow up since she was a little girl and now she has a baby girl.  They named their baby "Variety"  and this is the Quilt that I made for her.  I appliqued the elephant and bird using needle turn and then embelished with the embroidery detail. Mommy was very pleased.…
