I doubt this is going to be my favorite quilt I’ve ever made. I love the color red. I even like some black and red combinations. But so far, this composition looks very hectic. I’m thinking maybe I’ll put sashing... Continue reading

Remind me to never sign up for another mystery quilt challenge. I'm still hung up on Clue 3--or is it 4? Anyway, I can't get the points of my spider web blocks to meet accurately. So I've decided to cut... Continue reading

I had to sweep the cobwebs out of the way when I opened the door this morning to the sewing room. (Not really, but it seems so long since I've been in here that I'm surprised there weren't cobwebs.) It... Continue reading

I’ve been in a pretty severe flare this week. But it rained last night, and the flare seems to be lifting. I’m not sure that those two things are related, but I was happy for both. Clue 2 Clue 3,... Continue reading

My DIL, Kathryn, goes by the nickname of Spooky. I don’t know why. That’s just what Cait has always called her. She is also an avid cat person. She and Cait have two beautiful kitties, Selwyn and Lydia. When I... Continue reading

I saw the first Little Yellow Butterfly of the season before August even arrived, so I know Autumn is on the way--which puts me in the mood to make autumny quilts--especially halloween ones. I’ve had the pattern in the photo... Continue reading

Look at the fun fabric I found at JoAnn's Fabric to back my little "Witch Hunt" quilt. Don't you just love it? I bought just a yard, which is more than enough to back the quilt. But I'm wishing now... Continue reading

Some of you posed the question about my hair being so long in the bee pictures, so I thought I would update you. I’ve had some bad ideas in my life, but the hair thing was one of the baddest.... Continue reading

I cannot believe how fast time is flying these days. I can still remember as a child how it seems that summer was almost never-ending-- to the point that we were all excited when school started. And the time between... Continue reading

“Witch Hunt” now has borders. I got back into the sewing room this morning. First time in more than a week. I got the borders cut and sewn on my “Witch Hunt” quilt. So now it’s ready for quilting. This... Continue reading

I have wanted some of these little clips for a while now. But I found them to be very pricey in the online quilt shops, $25-$30. So I've just continued to use my old hair clips for my projects. Then... Continue reading

I had a quantum burst of energy or determination or something this morning, climbed the stairs to the sewing room, and finished my "Witch Hunt" top. I had decided to make a small wallhanging/table topper for a number of reason.... Continue reading

I’ve had some pretty trying days lately.The fatigue has been absolutely crushing, and unless I’m off my feet, it’s hard to concentrate on anything except the pain and fatigue. I apologize for ignoring the blog. I have also ignored the... Continue reading

I found an instruction on one page of the directions for "Garden Ladies" that I had missed before. It says that when each block is finished, It should be trimmed to 10 1/2" x 12 1/2". So that will theoretically... Continue reading

I got my second witch stitched this morning. I haven’t decided how many blocks this quilt will have yet. Maybe twelve. Maybe just nine for a small piece. Maybe w0, but no more than that. It depends on how quickly... Continue reading

I still have a huge bin full of autumn and Halloween fabrics. I’ve been thinking of what next Halloween project I could start when it all of a sudden occurred to me. I’ve been wanting to do a quilt using... Continue reading

Yesterday afternoon and this morning, I pieced a backing for the Bow Wow quilt. I used pieces of fabric from my stash, some that I used in the quilt top, so I didn't have to purchase extra fabric. In all,... Continue reading

The dogs are done, ready for quilting. I'm thinking about perhaps hand-quilting this one. It has been a while since I hand quilted. Not sure if my arthritic, carple-tunnely hands are up. I'll probably try quilting and small square before... Continue reading

Wow! I didn’t know you could do a colonoscopy without the prep. I’m going to ask about that if I ever have another one. Glad you mammograms are clear. It’s about time for mine, I think.

This has been quite and interesting and busy week--with Monday being the highlight of it all. Well, first let me start back a few weeks at the beginning. When I went for my annual checkup, my doctor started in on... Continue reading
