At long last, I got the binding made and sewn to the back of my Christmas Tree quilt that I made last year. Remember this? ^^^ *** Everybody is very excited in Alabama this morning. We woke up to a... Continue reading

I can’t say it’s my favorite work. And I can’t say it’s my best work. Maybe not my worst, but surely not my best. It has more waves than the Gulf of Mexico. I don’t know if Lena will ever... Continue reading

Cait and Kathryn spent much of the weekend with us. On Saturday evening, we enjoyed Rusty’s BBQ, fried okra, and other fixings. Cait and Kathryn carved a Jack-o-lantern. I found him on the front porch after they left on Sunday.... Continue reading

Look what my sister made for me for the “Trick or Tree” Halloween quilt. For now, though, he’s hanging on my tier stand on the dining room table. I think he looks good there, but I’ll probably move him to... Continue reading

As you can see from the photos, there are two different spider web blocks. My problem is that I can't decide how to arrange them in the quilt. For the arrangement I showed in my last post, I simply alternated... Continue reading

I have not forgot about my Halloween Mystery Quilt. Many of the participants have finished their tops and have posted photos on The Quilt Company Facebook Mystery page. But I hit a snag and got delayed. The fabric above is... Continue reading

I guess i have pushed too hard the past couple of weeks. It caught up with me yesterday. I was in so much pain that I was ready to take a Flexaril. I have a prescription from back in December... Continue reading

I started my week out with a busy Monday. I attended my quilt guild’s monthly meeting, followed by lunch at my favorite Chinese restaurant, Mr. Wang’s. My guild meets in Homewood, a suburb of Birmingham, and it’s a bit of... Continue reading

A small group of five of us met at my house on Monday for quilting bee. The others were off on end-of-the-season vacations. But we had a great time, talking and laughing and eating and talking quilts. I served some... Continue reading

I am not dead nor disabled, and I have not had my computer repossessed. I have just been really busy with mundane tasks and haven’t found time to work in the sewing room not to blog. I’ve been trying to... Continue reading

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

This is my doggie nephew Buddy. He’s a beautiful Border Collie that my sister Ramey adopted a couple of years ago. He’s such a sweetie. He now has his own possum. He found the possum in the woods behind Ramey’s... 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
