I love peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies.
I use little girl hair ties on my bobbins to keep them from unraveling because I have cats who like to take off with my bobbins and boy do they make a mess!

I love the fabric and flowers you chose! How about interviewing Bonnie Hunter?

Today I basted a great granny square quilt, and I need to make some sugar cookies for my hubby too!
Today I had a lot of house cleaning, but I did sew a patch on my nightgown where my kitten chewed a hole last year. Why does it take a year to do the easy mending? LOL
I love the colors in your quilt! I took a quilting class at my local recreation center from Lori Tompkins. The rest I have learned from the internet, books and asking a lot of questions! Also a lot of trial and error!
My husband had a work conference that I went to with him, so while he was working I set up my hand crank sewing machine and worked on my quilt! I'm just now catching up on my blogs, bad internet connection at the hotel! Today I finished some sail boat blocks!
I've been sewing every day with you! I've been out of town, but today at a friend's house I finished up a drunkard's path quilt she had started.
I like hand piecing, I think it is very relaxing.
This month I am working on a baby quilt for my new nephew and I need to quilt my niece's quilt!
I love the quilt on the front! I think I would make those flowers in oranges, reds and yellows! I love the needle case!
It depends, for a technique or tutorial, I usually prefer something that is short, less than ten minutes because that is usually all of the time I have available.
I like several different bag styles, just depends on my mood, but they all must have pockets and be easy to carry!
I really like your block!

I found some material that I made a pair of cullottes out of when I was 16, that was 23 years ago! It has surfing penguins on it, so I cut it up for my Scrappy trip around the world quilt and I still have a lot left! I even used it to make a heating pad with a few months ago.

I sewed a piece of dark pink to the backing which is a bright green fleece. I cut around it, but left some of it as a memorial to my first FMQ!
I do all of my piecing on a hand crank sewing machine, I love it! It is very peaceful, sews a perfect straight stitch, and never eats my material during chain stitching like my Janome does. I use my Janome for everything else though!
I am looking forward to moving to MO this summer!

When we drove through AZ, I made my husband stop by the side of the road to take pictures with the huge cacti! LOL

There is a radio show I listen to every day at 3:24, so that is my time set aside to sew everyday while I listen to it! I usually sew for about an hour and then I'll get supper ready for my husband for when he gets home.
I finished sewing the top of a pinwheels quilt for my prayer quilt ministry. Today I am sewing capes for a friend!
I made a block for a quilt block of the month that looked similar to yours and made the same mistake on the corners! It would make a nice "second image if all the blocks were like that! LOL I'm too lazy and left mine, maybe if I ever finish that quilt I'll fix it!
All of my friends go to my church and we are always having a lot of fun, but my best friend is my sister. Our birthdays are one day (and 3 years)apart, so I always go "home" for our birthdays and we are always laughing every where we go and have a ton of fun. I wish we lived closer together.
Mine is not too bad, my husband fusses at me if I start too many projects without finishing one, and since I've only been quilting for a little over a year.
When I saw this block I immediately thought "Crossroads". In a workshop I would like to learn FMQ, or maybe a hard new block.
