A 2015 Finish!

Finally, a 2015 finish! Yay me!! I was so dreading getting this quilt washed after the last two quilts with red fabrics had bleeding issues. Well, needless to say it hindered me a bit from wanting to get the binding taken care of in a timely fashi…

Working on Some Freehand Applique Letters

I’ve been steadily plugging along on my Fire quilt. The more I do, the less it feels like I’m fighting it. Does that make sense? Steady progress seems to free me up {emotionally} to work on other applique without feeling like I’m completely ditching th…

Smalls Sal – Feburary 2015

A Spicing We Go

Thursday night as we were finishing dinner our friend Bill came to cut my counter for me. It only took about 10 minutes and it was done.  After dinner I ran to Lowes and picked up a quart of white semi gloss to use. I put on the first coat. It dr…

Friday Night Sew In – February 2015

Friday Night Sew-In is hosted by Wendy of Sugar Lane Quilts. For me this sew-along means a push to get the sewing machine out and actually sew something, since I would normally rather just stitch or be playing with yarn. But when al…
