I've been away from this blog for a long, long time. Sorry about that. It has certainly been quite a year for me! Lots of illnesses in my household, and struggles. Life happens. Yesterday I picked up a quilt project for the first time since April, and that feels pretty... Continue reading

The last few stitches for TAST have been the satin stitch and the stem stitch. I've used these a lot, and I thought I would dig up some handkerchiefs I embroidered years ago and show them. These lovely handkerchiefs even won a few ribbons for me at the state fair!... Continue reading

I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with bags. I love them. I seem to always need a bag, and matching bags, and I collect bag patterns. Bags, boxes, organizers. Obsessed. Naturally when I ran across the Itty Bitty Treat Bag by Monica Solorio-Snow of Happy Zombie I... Continue reading

I had my sights on finishing those leaf blocks for the Fat Quarter Shop 2011 Designer Mystery. They are part of the finishing kit and I've had them cut out for weeks now, moving them from one surface to another as I have been working on other things. Then I... Continue reading

Carolina Christmas, the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt from 2009, I worked as a leader/ender project for the last couple of years. I was so close to having the last of the big blocks finished, that I just decided to bust out the final few. I love mystery quilts! Especially Bonnie... Continue reading

I have been keeping up with my TAST stitches since my last update. This week is catch-up week, and we do have a special challenge if we want to try to do something. I decided to do something a little bit different these few weeks. I used my version of... Continue reading

It's a FINISH! Woot! I thought, when I joined the Postage Stamp Quilt Along, that it would be a quick fun project that I would throw together in just a couple weeks. It started last May, and I just knew it was perfect timing for me to make the perfect... Continue reading

Remember my ribbon embroidery last month? When the theme for March's ATC swap was chosen as "Flowers" I knew just what to do with that little sample! It was already the perfect size, so all I needed to do was finish it off with a little sparkle! Isn't it the... Continue reading

I signed up for Sharon's Sumptuous Surface Embroidery class which will begin in May. What can I say, I'm having a love affair with embroidery right now! I thought I had a good stash of embroidery supplies, until I read her supplies list for the class! The first half of... Continue reading

Quilting my Postage Stamp quilt along quilt... hmmm, how do I want to do it? I know! I'll play on the argyle that I love so much in this Sugar & Spice collection by The Quilted Fish. I'll stitch the diagonals on the white squares, and alternate red and lime... Continue reading

I am utterly charmed by these nest box watch entries! What a delight to have lovely nests to watch as they build up and your new neighbors raise their babies!
I was at my local quilt store for bring your own project night, and some kittens followed me home! Oh my, aren't they the cutest little kittens? I know, I totally don't have the room for them in my house. My shelves, and boxes, and tables are bursting with fabric... Continue reading

I had best write about the March color palette challenge! The month is zooming by! I'm Irish, through and through, so March for me is all green, all the time. I did really think about skipping this month's official palette and go with my beloved Irish greens instead. In the... Continue reading

I received my "Love" themed ATC from my partner from Brazil! It's gorgeous!! I love the natural weave fiber she did the stitches on. And look at those gorgeous roses! I peeked under them, and they look as if she made them from ribbon first, then stitched them to the... Continue reading

I caught up on my TAST stitches. I've been falling behind, so I decided to do just a quick sample of each one I hadn't done yet, and catch up. I am using a linen repurposed from an old (and beloved) pair of pants. My embroidery bag, book, and my... Continue reading

This little quilt I definitely made with schnibbles! Schnibbles of fabric that is! February's pattern for Another Year of Schnibbles is I.S.T.H. (Insert Snappy Title Here). I liked the look of the stars in red and blue, so I went with it. I really like what I have made here.... Continue reading

While I would love to explore this stitch further (and I just might) I am falling a bit behind on my TAST stitches. I thought I would try this stitch out, as I have never done it before. It was fun! I like that most of the thread ends up... Continue reading

My quilties swap arrived in the mail! These are the ones I received from Sandra Kaye's quiltie swap this month. The theme was lace. Aren't they just lovely? I'd love to thank each of you for the work you did on these gorgeous beauties! Thank you! Continue reading
