I have Schnibble fever! They're so much fun to make. This pattern comes from Carrie Nelson's book Schnibbles Times Two, and she calls it "Plan C" (something about plans not always working out on the first try). I'm tentatively calling... Continue reading

My Cindy Lou Who Schnibble is pieced and ready for quilting. And I love it. I was afraid there for a while I wasn't going to, but I do. Now I want to make more Schnibbles. Good thing a I... Continue reading

We got a little bit of it all last night. The weatherman had warned for several days of a winter weather event, so of course I was looking forward to giant fluffy snowflakes resulting in a white landscape and neighborhood... Continue reading

Not long after Vann passed away, a dear internet quilting friend sent me a comfort package filled with charm packs, layer cakes, and jelly rolls. About that same time, or maybe a while later (I don't remember the exact time... Continue reading

I'm usually a little sad when the holidays are finally over, but not this year. It has been a rough time for me. Lots of planning and cooking at a time when I would have rather stayed in bed. But... Continue reading

Seven Swans A-Swimming Well, actually it's a toss-up between 2016 and 2009, and to be truthful, 2009 (the year Vann died) was worse. But this year sure comes in a close second. I won't be sorry to see it go.... Continue reading

Man! Don't I have some handsome cousins?? This is just three of them. Yep, Santa's my cousin too. These three gentlemen come from my paternal grandmother's side of the family. They aren't brothers, they're cousins, but they each certainly bear... Continue reading

I just learned that not everyone knows about the 12 Days of Christmas. I guess that's because we in America consider Christmas to be only one day, December 25. However, that's just the beginning. Yuletide actually begins then and runs... Continue reading

From blogging that is. I've been even longer away from the sewing room, three weeks, I think. But I'm back today. I just had to have some sewing time. I finished up the body of the Bonnie Hunter "Talking Turkey"... Continue reading

I love it when I come across a quilt I made years back and have forgotten. (That seems to happen more and more as the years pile up on me.) I discovered this one this morning on daughter Andy's Facebook... Continue reading

My sister Joanne photographed some of Mama's quilts and posted them to her Facebook page. They looked so pretty on her bed that I thought I would share them here. It was from Mama that I got my love of... Continue reading

Fake News has always been around, but in the past few years it has become not just a nuisance but a danger to democracy. How can we have a free country when there's no way to tell truth from fiction?... Continue reading

After my flying geese false starts, I finally got enough correct-size geese made to finish one of my nine blocks. Here it is. Eight more to go. This is turning out to be a lot more complicated than I thought... Continue reading

My quilters guild has a "free table" at each meeting. On this table (well, it's often more than one table), members place fabric, patterns, books, notions, or anything quilt/sewing related that she wants to purge from her stash. On Monday,... Continue reading
