In the middle of a lot of quilting I've been making cards too. Oh look, the card is upside down! That's typical and it's not the computer's fault. I did that all on my own. I needed some new cards... Continue reading

FloMo and I were busy this past weekend. This is veteran's quilt #3 for 2015. It was pieced by Miriam from fabrics left over from a beautiful Hunter's Star quilt that she made in 2014. It's quilted with a feather... Continue reading

I hope my friends in the Northeast US are OK today. When you see this first new fabric you are going to think I created it just for this event. Actually this new gradient came about because a customer asked... Continue reading

I admit I've been stressing over this. I haven't started my Series project or my Big Dream project because this has been hanging over my head. It had a deadline of February 4 and I was struggling with what to... Continue reading

If's official. I'm over bottle slumping for a while! I got my process to work and slumped a case of bottles so I have my Christmas gifts covered for 2015. That feels really good! But I'm gratefully back to working... Continue reading

Right after the holidays I decided that it was finally time to deal with this bathroom. I hated that wallpaper about 10 minutes after I hung it. But it's in the guest house so I don't have to look at... Continue reading

Get into a discussion with quilters about the quilting process and most of them will tell you that they like binding the least. I'm not overly fond of binding either but the thing I hate doing the most is blocking... Continue reading

About 5 years ago my friends Terri, Sue and Kathy made this quilt for me as a surprise for my 50th birthday. I still remember opening the box and being completely shocked and overwhelmed by their thoughtfulness and generosity. I... Continue reading

I was a very good girl yesterday and got all of my recent new fabrics dyed and photographed. Chris was shocked to have a couple of days without fabric hanging over the banister railing. Here's what's now pressed and pretty... Continue reading

I think I set out to test that almost every weekend. This past weekend I quilted 2 veteran's quilts for CSQ (no photo yet), slumped more bottles, and added more pieces to the brown quilt. More importantly I got all... Continue reading

I think I've got it working now! Last week I mentioned devitrification spray as a possible solution. I also mentioned that it's a mixture of clear glass powder. I don't know where I got that idea but that is completely... Continue reading

When I finished quilting Fractured Fragments I said I was going to do some fast projects next . The Batik Crossroads quilt is now quilted and bound and read for one of the twin beds in the guest house. I... Continue reading

I've decided that we will set the 15th of each month to check in on our "Big Dream" projects. What's a Big Dream project? It's that project that you've wanted to do but haven't started. Why? What's stopping you? Do... Continue reading

I needed an excuse to sit and watch football this weekend. Fractured Fragmments needs a label so I made it my football project. This time I took a photo at every decision point so you can see how I draw... Continue reading

December was such a busy month makinng the Rainbow Scrap Challenge packages that I didn't get an opportunity to make more fabric for the shop. I've rectified that this week and have more in the pipeline. Here's what's new today:... Continue reading

It was a great weekend here. It was cold enough outside that the best option was to crank up the wood stove and stay inside. That's mostly what I did. I did go out Friday to sewing day with my... Continue reading

I never intended to slump wine bottles then I agreed to do a few for some friends. It hasn't gone perfectly and you know me. That's a challenge flag and I'm determined to meet it. So I went to the... Continue reading

I admit that I've spent most of this week removing this hideous wallpaper in the guest house bathroom. I think you will agree that it was time well spent. I've turned the room over to Chris now to patch holes... Continue reading

Remember these? I steadily work on them when I'm out waiting somewhere or when I'm watching TV (and the internet doesn't work). I finished the last one in this group yesterday while the dude was here fixing the internet. This... Continue reading

I know that we are supposed to live in the "real" world but when my internet goes out I realize that my "real" world is the internet! That was a very long 3 days without internet. It turned out to... Continue reading

Just checking in briefly to tell you that my internet is out and will probably be out for a few days. The UFO link up and the newsletter will be late. On the positive side I might actually get more... Continue reading

It's a pretty red dish.....if you are into red like I am. With all of the bad luck I've been having slumping bottles it's nice to have a success with glass that was actually made to be fused! This dish... Continue reading
