I’m told we reached 94% totality here, but it was never close to dark. The light did get very soft and muted. Beautiful. I looked for the crescent shadows that I saw during the last eclipse back in the 80s,... Continue reading

It seems sister Ramey and I can’t go anyplace without making at least one wrong turn--or at least not taking the right turn. Yesterday, Ramey had to go to Sylacauga, a town about 40 miles south of here. I decided... Continue reading

On Saturday (at least, I think it was Saturday), I bought several fat quarters, thinking to make the stars in the "Kris's Kats" quilt multicolored--pink ones, yellow ones, purple ones, etc. After getting them home and studying on them a... Continue reading

This is the block I'm going to use for "Kris's Kats" quilt. But I am definitely not going to use that yellow fabric. In going through my stash, I found it and decided it would be a great color to... Continue reading

Eighteen more border star blocks to go, and then I can put the whole thing together. I'm thinking I'll start Kris's cat quilt after I finish this. Andy's cat quilt is a snowball pattern, but I think I'm going to... Continue reading

This is Prissy (aka, Butterfly McQueen), one of Andy's cats relaxing on Andy's cat quilt that I made for her years ago. An old true friend of mine (well, actually, the daughter of an older true friend of mine), Kris,... Continue reading

When I told Taco that I had figured out what the awful smell in my sewing room was, I demanded that he show me just where he had answered Nature’s call. Taco looked at me with that Clint Eastwood glare... Continue reading

Well, more chaos than wine actually. The past week has been full of responsibility and driving here and there and taking care of family stuff and doing favors and I don't know what all. The most startling thing that happened... Continue reading

I have all the RIbbon Star blocks complete for "Star Spangled Summer." Now I have to sew them all together and think about a border--maybe. I'm thinking a pieced border made from Friendship Star blocks, either 4 inch or 3... Continue reading

I've got so little done this week, sewing-wise, that I really don't have anything to show. I did sew one "Star Spangled Summer" block this morning, but it's not so different from the others that I want to post a... Continue reading

I have fourteen blocks completed for my "Star Spangled Summer" quilt. Thanks to Barbara H. for the title suggestion. Six more blocks, and I can put it together. I haven't even thought about how I'm going to do that yet--whether... Continue reading

Jesse’s quilt is home from the quilter. This is it from the back side. I love the quilting. Now to get the binding done so that Jesse can sleep under it. Sorry I haven’t been doing much blogging lately. Lots... Continue reading

I just finished my tenth block for my patriotic summer quilt. Ten blocks to go, and I can put it all together. I thought I was going to sew all day, and it's barely 12:30, but I've changed my mind.... Continue reading

Four of my Patriotic Ribbon Stars are done. I'll need 20. I'm not sure what I'm going to call this one. I'm hoping something summery and patriotic comes to me as I work on it. I like my quilts to... Continue reading

Skipper pouting over the discovery and repair of his escape route I found Skipper’s escape hatch. When the tree cutters came a few years ago to take down a big dead oak in the back yard, they had to take... Continue reading

For a long time, I've wanted to make a patriotic-themed quilt to hang in my foyer during summertime to celebrate all the patriotic holidays. Finally I have begun. I ordered a fat quarter bundle of MaryJo Tuttle's "Patriotic Picnic" prints... Continue reading

No, I still haven't found that blasted cord. But Jesse let me borrow his (something I had not even thought of until yesterday) so I could post a photo of my newly finished "Heartwarming" quilt top. It's all ready to... Continue reading

I thought I had found the cord for my photo downloads, but it was the wrong cord. So I still haven't found it, and I'll just tell the news anyway. Two of my quilts were awarded ribbons in Quiltfest 2017... Continue reading

Somehow I have lost the cord that lets me download photos from my camera to my computer. I can’t imagine what has happened to it, since I never ever unplug it from the computer. But I have searched every place... Continue reading

On some Ramey Sister Shopping Spree or another, I found this jigsaw puzzle and it reminded me of “Downton Abbey.” It’s not titled that; I think the title is “Upstairs, Downstairs.” But since I love “Downton” and jigsaw puzzles, I... Continue reading

I found the absolute perfect eyelet lace to make the flange on the "Heart Warming" quilt. See the little hearts? I found it on Etsy and bought nine yards, which should make it around the quilt. What did we ever... Continue reading

If you bet against me, you lose. I just now finished up "Trick or Tree." Quilted, bound, labeled, sleeved, and embellished. With a couple of days to spare. Actually, a little more quilting wouldn't have hurt it, but it has... Continue reading
