Thanks Leila - I really like simple baby quilts too. I hope you get your templates soon and can get started. It's fun to see the rosettes come together.
Thanks Carrie - I love those fabrics too and I have enough left that I can make something for myself. Maybe a purse or a tote bag.
Thanks! I'm planning on just using up a lot of scraps so not sure what colors I'll go with next.
Thanks Janine - I'm enjoying the La Passacaglia right now. We'll see how many rosettes I make before I decide that's enough :)

I have a few works in progress right now. First up is a baby quilt. I fell in love with this quilt as soon as I saw it and when I heard there was going to be a new baby boy in our extended family, I knew it would be... Continue reading

I found this cute little English Paper Piecing Travel Kit online at thezenofmaking.com and have wanted to make it for awhile now. I finally decided to cut everything out and work on the hexagons on our road trip to Sunriver in September. Once those were all done, I sewed it... Continue reading

Sandra - Thanks for stopping by for the tour of my studio. I appreciate your kind comments. That long arm was part of the reason I got that room when my husband built "his" garage :)

Karen - Thanks for stopping by my studio. I appreciate your nice comments. No matter how much storage I have, I seem to always need more since I keep buying scrapbooking and quilting supplies.

Thanks Lori - I'm glad you stopped by for the studio tour. The orange and blue color scheme just makes me happy and makes me want to spend time creating there.

Bobbie - Thanks for taking the time to tour my studio. Yes, Zoey is pretty cute and thinks he's helping me by leaving cat hair all over everything. And no, not a Bronco fan; Seahawks all the way!

Thanks Lorraine - I thought about painting it white with pops of color, but just love blue. I'm glad you stopped by.

Welcome to my studio and the Where Bloggers Create party hosted by Karen Valentine at My Desert Cottage. Not a lot has changed since last year, although I did recently repaint the room in a lighter shade of blue and add this cute orange and blue bird rug. This is... Continue reading

I've been thinking about how I want to document my 30 Days of Lists for December and I decided to use this little kraft grid journal from Stampin' Up. I went through and glued pages together to make them a little more sturdy. I'm going to decorate my pages using... Continue reading

The theme was "sunflowers" and we picked this appliqued and pieced wallhanging. The flowers have yoyos and buttons in the center and... Continue reading

I just completed Cathy Zielske's Big Picture Class - Me: The Abridged Version where you journal about your life using nouns from A through Z and then add pictures. I found it fun, frustrating, and ultimately rewarding. It was time consuming to come up with the words, journal about them... Continue reading
