I love my Skipper and Sophie. Truly I do. But sometimes they can be a trial and a tribulation. I think I'll change their names to Trial and Tribulation. Take for instance, they like to get up early--very early. Sometimes... Continue reading

This is my beautiful Rowenta iron, made in Germany (not a cheap Mexican or Chinese knock-off) that I was so proud to receive last fall. I'm not so proud any more. A few weeks ago, it started leaking. Just a... Continue reading

I finally had to call a halt to sewing and clean up my sewing room. It was a total disaster and had been for some time. What spurred me on, I think, was when Jesse walked by, stuck his head... Continue reading

Oh dear, Mary. I forgot to add that after the BBQ and the book store, we did go back and see the movie--from the beginning. And we loved it. Sent from my iPad

I had a couple of down days lately. Fatigue and back pain got to me. But I'm back in the saddle today, working on my quilts again. On Monday, my sister Ramey went with me and we delivered the Farm... Continue reading

Dogs Days have been good to me this year. My infirmities have been manageable, and I'm getting a lot of stuff done. Not nearly so much time spent on the couch as during the past few months. I'm pumped. I... Continue reading

I got the backing stitched up for the Farm Girl quilt, and this morning I moved on to working the autumn quilt from Quilters World magazine. They call it Fall Frolic. I'm thinking of October Dreams for the title of... Continue reading

I opted to border the sampler quilt. I had this red floral print that I picked up at WalMart a while back. It seemed made for this quilt, so that's what I used for the border. I have a little... Continue reading

My Farm Girl Sampler rows are all finished and sewn together. Now I have to cut and sew a border--if I decide I want a border. There's a version of the quilt in Lori's book that doesn't have a border,... Continue reading

The Lyric is back! I've been a bad blogger--and a bad quilter too. I haven't done either in, what?, a couple of weeks I guess. It's not that anything is wrong--at least not anything new. It's just that the things... Continue reading

I finished the rest of the Rainbow Heart blocks. They're all in a stack waiting to be sashed together into a pretty quilt top. And I got the second row of the Farm Girl Sampler sashed and attached to the... Continue reading

I really enjoyed making the first block for the autumn leaves quilt from Quilter's World magazine. It was a very easy and fun block to make, using some of the same techniques as in the Farm Girl Sampler quilt. No... Continue reading

It has been a long since I've bought a quilting magazine. It seems I find too many projects online that I want to make without going to the quilt publications. But the other day I happened to stroll by the... Continue reading

I was spending way too much time on the phone telling telemarketers "I'm not interested" and wrong number callers "You have the wrong number" and just hanging up on political calls. So I adopted the policy of never answering the... Continue reading

Each year, our quilter's guild members make blocks for our outgoing president. This year our president, Claire, requested that we make 6" house blocks of any design or technique. Above is mine. The pattern is from the Farm Girl Sampler... Continue reading

So I finished my Augmenten that the urgent care doctor prescribed. My condition, though some improved, was not where I thought I should be. So I went to see my PC doctor yesterday. He said I still have the ear... Continue reading

A couple of days after Vann's funeral in 2009, I came down with a raging case of flu. It was that bird flu or pig flu or monkey flu or whatever they were peddling that year. I got it. I... Continue reading
