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

Or as Jack Bauer is wont to say, “DAMMIT!" Remember this? “Trick or Tree.” I started it last Autumn and have never quite finished it. But I entered it in the quilt show, knowing that I had several weeks to... Continue reading

I got all the sashing and corner stones cut out and Row 1 put together. But now Skipper quotes Popeye by saying, "Enough is too much." (At least I believe it was Popeye who first said that.) The Skipster wants... Continue reading

This is Kathryn and Cait’s cat Selwyn, enjoying a pleasant snuggle with an old fuzzy mouse toy named Mattie Brown. When Kathryn posted this picture on Facebook, I recognized the old fellow immediately, and I had not seen him in... Continue reading

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” Acts 2:17 I love the tradition of... Continue reading

Yesterday, I got the “Turkey Trot” wall hanging finished--bound, labeled, and sleeve sewn on. I did something with the binding that I’ve never done before. I made flange binding. It was very easy. The flange is the red strips between... Continue reading

Nothing to blog about. I haven’t done any sewing in days. Just taking care of ticky tacky stuff around here until I’m out of spoons and don’t feel like sewing. The big event yesterday was changing my sheets. You’d be... Continue reading

All the heart blocks are fused, but not all of them are stitched. I also have all my sashing strips cut and now have to cut the cornerstones. This quilt is going together a lot faster than I thought it... Continue reading

We are truly a wasteful society. I ordered a Curvalicious quilting ruler from Amazon. This is the box it was delivered in just now. A box big enough to hold at a couple of gross of these rulers. Nothing else... Continue reading

I started out the day yesterday feeling pretty darn good. Well enough, in fact, to do quite a bit of house work that had been needing doing. I had a doctor appointment at 3:00 p.m., to finish up my annual... Continue reading

Today I’ve been working on getting labels on my quilt backs. Every quilt entered in the show must have a documentation label. In past years, we weren’t required to put our address and phone number on the labels, but we... Continue reading

I have exactly half my heart blocks done. Ten more to go. I tested out a title that I'd thought of for this quilt, "Heart Attack," on some of my friends, and most of them thought it a little bit... Continue reading

A small group of friends, including me, met at The Club in Birmingham yesterday for lunch and to discuss the wonderful book Carrying Albert Home by Homer Hickam. I loved this book and can highly recommend it. (See the book... Continue reading

Yesterday while Anna cleaned, I got some heart blocks sewn--four blocks done and another started. It had been several week since the house had had a good cleaning, and it needed it. It had also been several weeks since I... Continue reading

I made it to guild meeting yesterday, got my quilt show entry forms turned in, sat through our business meeting, and saw a little bit of Show and Tell before I had to leave. Sitting on metal chair hurt, and... Continue reading

These are the grey fabrics I purchased while fabric shopping with my sister a week or so ago. I think I had exactly one scrap of grey before I bought these. Now I can work on something grey and pink,... Continue reading

Taco is a great bonder. Here he is bonding with Cait on the living room floor. Bella stayed in hiding for the first few days Cait and Kathryn were here. Now she comes out occasionally, but bonding is not in... Continue reading

Cait and Kathryn have discovered Daylight Donuts delicious apple fritters. I haven’t had any time for quilting this week. But I’ve been enjoying spending time with Cait and Kathryn. We haven’t done anything special. In fact, I haven’t been away... Continue reading

Cait and Kathryn will be here this evening. I’m trying very hard to get the bedroom ready for them. You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to change bed sheets when you have no working spine. I grocery shopped yesterday,... Continue reading
