One Wedding Quilt Done

Last night I finished this quilt for niece and her new husband.  It looks a little strange since it is a king size on a full size bed but I love the way it came out.  It is quilted with perle cotton.…

Next 2 Dear Janes

I haven't posted in a while and I think I should start in this new year.

I have been working on my Dear Jane since Feb of 2015.  I should be at 130 blocks by now but I only have about 50.  I started reworking on them this week.  So far this week I have done A1 and A13.  A13 is an alternate block since I didn't thing that I could do the original. 

I have to start squaring up my blocks so that I can start on the sashing.  I am thinking about a gold or a brown with the…

Good Saturday morning everyone.

I am working on a new show. We are doing

Nuncracker at the local high school. We went out last night to get material for

the costumes. We have to make at least 5 tutus. I haven't seen the show but

think Nunsense with the Nutcracker.

I have a lot to do for Thanksgiving this up coming week.

I am cooking at my house and bringing the food to my

inlaws house. It will be a small group this year. One of my sil is in the…

Made it through Sandy

I just wanted to stop by and say hi to everyone.

I just got power back yesterday afternoon.  My house lost a cable and power line when a LARGE tree branch came down and landed lightly on my car (no damage).  Another LARGE branch from the same tree took out two sections of our fence.    We had a little damage to the side of the roof but nothing else too big.  The house is finally warm.  It was tough to be without power for 8 days when the entire neighborhood had it back after 2…

October 14th, 2012

Making progress on Sean's quilt.  I am almost halfway with the handquilting. 


I put the squares together for Krissy's quilt.  Just need to put the border on. I don't know if it will be one or two.  I know the first one will be the dark green.  I don't know if I want an almost black outer one or b usy black/white/grey but I think that will be too busy.


I also cut some 2 1/2 squares for the fabric frenzy quilts I am planning.

October 3, 2012 Intimidation

It has been a tough start to the year but this week it has gotten worse.  I was told for the 3rd year in a row that I am so intimidating that my students can't come in for extra help.  Maybe it is time to get out.


I have been so upset that I haven't worked on anything since the weekend.  I am going to try tonight but my drier broke and I think I have to go do laundry at the laudromat (haven't been there in years).


It could be worse.

Sept 30th Pillowcase Day yesterday

I had a great day yesterday.  I spent the day making pillowcases for kids with cancer.   We made 70 while we were at the quilt shop and there were 108 made and dropped off ahead of time.  It was fun since we started with what they had and while we were working they started cutting Christmas fabric so we switched to Christmas fabrics and spent the rest  of the day working on Christmas cases.  We had a wonderful sweatshop running during the morning.  A couple of people were pinning, three of…

Sept 29th

I had Wed off for the Jewish Holyday.  I spent the morning making a couple of table runners.  I made one for someone at school who is leaving and moving to Arizona.  It was lighthouses on one side and a beach type of fabric on the other.  I made a Halloween one for Dennis.  HIs birthday present came on Tuesday.  The Jim Shore hitchhiking ghosts look great on the table runner.


I spent a couple of hours on Thursday night hand quilting Sean's twin size…
