My Cozy Village Pattern Pack Giveaway!

Do you know Felicia T. Brenoe? I didn’t either until an email arrived asking if I would like to be a part of her new ‘My Cozy Village’ pattern pack blog tour. Honestly, I was a bit tentative until some research proved that, wowsers! this lady defi…

Quilty 365—A Year Long Quilting Journey

Wanna play? As was mentioned in my previous post, I’m starting a new project. Every day for a year I’m going to choose out fabric and sew a simple circle. Since there seemed to be a bit of interest, I decided to make a button and welcome anyone else wh…

And Four More Blocks Makes Twelve

Four more blocks for Vintage Red so that makes 12 in all. I still think it’s gonna be an interesting quilt, but for some reason I’m not in a huge rush to finish.Vintage RedI have a lot of applique idea stacking up in my head though {and to be honest, o…

Another One of Those Crazy Weekends

It’s been one of those crazy, busy weekends that seem to be the new normal around here. Lots of great family time with me going a hundred miles an hour trying to keep up on all the dishes, laundry and cooking. My sister helped me to make nectarine pies…

A Happy Finish

Happy Flowers is finally a true blue finished quilt! Woohoo! It’s only been in the hoop since April…. Um, yeah. A couple other quilts sort of nudged it out of the way.Happy FlowersI think maybe because the stitching wasn’t going to change the look ve…

The New Project is Vintage Red

I don’t know why, but generally, the first color I look for in a background fabric is cream or something very neutral. Boring perhaps, but that’s just the way it is around here. Then last summer, when we took our trip to Oklahoma, this quilt …

{Almost} Too Hot to Quilt

Wowsers, it has been so very hot around here. And wouldn’t you know it, our heat and air system went down on Friday afternoon!!! We’re scheduled for a emergency ‘fix it’ sometime today or tomorrow, but really, we need a new system and can’t even begin …

Working on My Eagle Quilt

First of all,  thanks to Ems Scrapbag and Maryse Makes Things for nominating me for The Lovely Blog Award! Very sweet of both of you, but I’m still trying to catch up around here, so will not have time to follow through. I have both…

The Loose Ends

Getting the bits and pieces figured out for all five panels on the fire quilt. I usually consider it ‘cleaning up the loose ends’, but sometimes it takes more time than others. I spent several hours with it laying on the floor, scratching my head and w…

The View to my Lap

Quilting has been knocked off the priority list this week, but I still manage to squeeze in a few moments here and there. {I do value my sanity such as it is.} After a nice longish break, I picked up the fire quilt again. On to panel #4! My coffee…

Easter Weekend Gone in a Flash

We had the busiest weekend! Easter was here and gone in a flash. On Friday we left home and drove south to Oregon to attend a cousins wedding. Got in a bunch of good visiting with family, loving on a new-ish roly poly niece and then came home via the O…

This Quilt

I have stitched on this quilt until my eyes have practically crossed. Then it gets set aside for work on something else. Each week though, I consistently keep coming back to this quilt, and as always, I’m seeing the kind of progress that eventually sho…
