It is spring today`

Not actually spring but feels like it. We went to DH's doctor and he got a semi -answer that he wanted. He told him he could putt and chip (golf) but not use the driver yet. He is thankful for anything that would get him out of his chair. Hig leg is not quite healed but almost there.

The flower beds need work. My weeping cherry tree is blooming! I got it last year after it had bloomed and I am so glad to see it this year. It is white. The blooms come out and then they fall and the leaves… Continue

Snow is still here

My husband's father always said "if the snow lays around it will snow again." But no snow predicted by the weatherman. My hubby has two doctor appointments today. He broke his leg nine months ago and is 80% healed but it has been a long ordeal. With me not being able to see well enough to drive it hampered us a bit. I have been listening to my recorded books since about 5:00. I am an early riser and an early to bedder (is that a word) too. My Beau dog doesn't like to get his feet wet so this… Continue

For the people who are in northern states that doesn't sound like much, but..............We don't have much snow in TN and we are suposed to get 2-3 inches tonight. Then it is supposed to by 68 next week. Oh my! I have been working on the Sweet Pea Sonata block that is in the recent issue of Quilmaker magazine. I am doing it in 30's material, which I simply love. I will do a table topper probably. I hate to do that because I love bed quilts but it will be easier to quilt on a domestic machine.… Continue

Fisible binding

I found a site www.dhquilts@blogspot.com and there is a wonderful tutorial fro doing binding on quilts with fusible thread. I use YLI fusible thread. Hope it is okay to mention a products name. Go to the right side of the homepage and it will say tutorials. I sent a comment this morning but I have no idea where it went. I don't think I am doing this very well. Hope this helps. Bettty in TN

Okay, I'm loosing it today`

Anne sent me a message to see if I had got my free embroidery block. She said go to files and I could get it. For the life of me I cannot find files. That bad memory I talked about yesterday is still her. I have been putting binding on a lap quilt. I am using the technique with fusible thread. The last time I used it everything went great. Today nothing has gone right. The thread keeps raveling on me and then with bad eyes it is hard to thread the needle even with an automatic threader.… Continue

Bad memory

I am trying to finish a quilt today. Those eight UFO'S are stareng me in the face. I wanted to put a corner label that I would embroidery on my embroidery machine. Well it took me so long to rembember how to do it that now I am tired and will have to wait until tomorrow to bind the quilt. Age sure gets in the way of what I want to do. So many ideas and so little time. I loved the video on cutting bias binding. Helped me a lot. It's a stripe and will look good on the bias. I am so happy to be… Continue
