I ironed and trimmed up my blocks yesterday and when I had a few moments ALONE this afternoon I laid it out! I should have a chance to get it put together soon :) We do have a special visitor coming this week, but I don't foresee my machine being put away this time!My girls [...]

I have a finish at last! I've been calling this my "Nod to Random" - what do you think?I'm really looking forward to working on the cancer quilt - it will be a simple and hopefully quick finish :) Did I tell you that they were giving those kits away for people to just bring [...]

The last couple of days have started to feel like fall!I'm not ready.I've woken up yesterday and today huddled under our down comforter (no quilt there, yet) with that cool crisp air that reminds me that it will be cold before I know it. I was just telling you how hot it was here, and [...]

Here's the mess that I have created for myself! Tons of tiny hourglass blocks :) I really have had fun working with them, there's just lots to work with. And here's the layout:I had considered making it random, but with only 4 different blocks, it wouldn't end up very random. And I am a concrete [...]

Work In Progress :)

I have spent a good chunk of time yesterday and today pinning. Pinning while watching the Olympics! Good clean fun - now I just need to peel myself away from the tube and get to the sewing machine.There's about 150 sets awaiting sewing - I like to keep everything at the same stage of "production." [...]

I just finished my first block from AmandaJean's star quilt-a-long. So fun! Honestly, I'm sorta glad I only started now - I don't have to wait for next week to start the next! It may seem like I've done nothing more than blog and quilt today but I assure you my family is not malnourished [...]

I did manage to eek out enough time to finish the top I showed you last week! Our weekends tend to be less routine and more fun family time - which in turn equals less sewing time. . . I like it that way. :)Please excuse the bits of mess you see behind it. . [...]

The Plunge

Well being uncertain, and a little bored of my straight line quilting - I took the plunge! I am so glad that I did :)I've been practicing stippling/loop-d-loop quilting, but had yet to put it on a quilt - I was chicken! Having watched videos online and read about stippling - you aren't supposed to [...]
