Happy National Quilting Day

If you ask my husband, he will tell you that I consider every day to be quilting day, but this is the official National Quilting Day.  I went on a road trip with 3 friends to Warsaw, MO, which is a small town north of Springfield where we visited 3 stores where we all made sure to support the local economy.  Then we went to this bar-b-que restaurant that has probably been there since the 1940's.  Had wonderful food!  All in all a fabulous way to spend a sunny Saturday in March.

March 13 Preparing for staying with baby grandson

As I start my week (last week), I am torn.  I have a pulled muscle on my left side.  It hurts to move, breath, walk, sit.  Near tears.  My son wants me to come to stay with the baby, so he and his wife can get away for a bit one day.  Thing is, they live some 80 miles away.  I do not like driving in traffic anymore, though I was born and raised in that area. 

To make a long story short, I his twin brother who lives near us, was coming up.  I hitched a ride, sparing his brother driving…

Quilt

This is a quilt that was brought to me to put a binding on.  The man's mother died before she got it finished. If anyone can tell me what the star pattern is called I would love to know.  All the books with stars that I have don't have this pattern in it.…

Out of the Blue -UFO

I'm working on another UFO.  This one has been in my basket for about 3 years.  It was a challenge piece in that the circles had to be as perfect as possible and pieced, then appliqued onto a whole cloth background.  The pathway is also a challenge as it was pieced together with strippy pieces in differing widths and cut to meander down the side of the whole cloth background.  It sat in my basket up to the sandwich stage.  So, I've again committed to working on it for at least 1 hour…

Out goes February Getting ready for March

I hope this post finds everyone well.  I have been fighting allergies all week.  The pollen level here has gone up to spring time levels.  Itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, sinus drainage.  Just miserable.  But I know it will end, someday.  Daffodils are in full bloom along with our Arizona Ash tree.  Even our Chinese pistache is trying to bud out.  Way to early.  I pray we do not get  a hard freeze now.  I have even seen robins.   So all of you that have snow, please send it elsewhere.…

Mimosas at the Quilt Shop

The Quilt Lover's Hangout in North Ft. Myers, Fl had show and tell while you sipped mimosas! Now, that is a nice way to spend a couple hours while the guys are at the Daytona 500. The picture shows about a quarter of the shop...great store. What's nice is they rent machines for $10. Next year, I will bring mine. Bought a few fat quarters of fabrics that look like water for a wallhanging.…

Catching up . . .

Life takes some very unexpected turns. This is what has been happening with me,

On Jan 7th Don left about 1:30p to take a drive while I went to a church meeting. He takes many drives and always comes back in time for supper at 5p so at 6:30, when he wasn’t back yet and it was dark, I called the town marshall and asked "when should I start to panic." He said he would be right there and he was. Don would not…

Spirit Led Crafts - Valentine's Week

Thank you for reading my blogs.  

What a crazy week starting with the weekend before Valentine's day.  My husband and I were sort of anticipating a 'surprise' visit from our youngest son, Kyle.  He is a Valentine's baby and knows how much I hate driving in Dallas, Tx.   This year was different.  Saturday we got a late afternoon call from Darren, (3rd child of 4 and youngest twin).  They were going to have a get together for family and friends on Sunday.  So, fast plans for a…

Lotsa Hearts

This is an old design from my stash, 1989 to be exact. I counted 27 designs I have left to complete. I have pledged not to draw any new ones until those get done. At the rate I'm going it'll be 10 or so years before I get done. Ouch!

Nazca Star and Cross

I have been away from the quilting floor for awhile. This design isn't exactly my own, but comes from the desert of Nazca. So I was a bit lazy in the design department sheesh! lol

Another finish

A few years ago I hosted a swap with the Machine Embroidery Buddies group & chose owls as the theme.  Eight of us participated so I ended up making 2 blocks in order to have enough for a wallhanging.  I made the block that is the center of the 1st row and the block of the owl wearing overalls in the bottom row.  After all if you live in farm country in Missouri, you need an owl that wears overalls right?!  It will hang in my newly repainted office once I get a new curtain rod to hang it…

One UFO finish

Making a commitment to sew at least an hour everyday has paid off with the completion of this quilt top.  It has been kicking around in my UFO basket for at least 8 years as cut pieces to make pinwheel blocks.  It feels good to be done with the top and to move on to something else.
