Since I’m about to have several days away, I’m getting some projects ready to take with me and work on. There is a LOT of stuff to take with me if I’m going to sew away from home. I’m just not sure what I want to work on, since I really don’t have a current… Continue reading Projects….or total relaxation?
Another busy week, so not much time for sewing. I got the hockey quilt backed and basted, but realistically won’t get it started until next week. I’m going to have a few days of R&R and really wanted to sit, relax and hand stitch, but this quilt won’t quilt itself! I will bring everything I… Continue reading Itsy steps
Yes, I finally made a decision about the new hockey quilt. Which, in case you don’t remember, has nothing to do with hockey except it’s AJ’s new team colors! I made a simple block, put it in a simple layout and then dithered about the final details. Jeez………..stay simple, for goodness sake! It was square,… Continue reading Always–keep it simple!
Artist reception is Friday, Sept. 23 from 7-9. We would love it if you were able to join us!
The new hockey quilt is almost ready for quilting prep. I’m facing a huge amount of indecision, though, over how I want to finish up the edges!

It was another away hockey tournament weekend for the grandson. That means hotel time for us and for the first time in a long time, I saw some interesting hotel carpeting again. I’m not thrilled with the colors but I like the retro look. The feeling carried over into the room, with this bold choice… Continue reading Weekend fun-ish!
TROUBLE! Here’s the back story. I spray baste whenever I can, but when I do, I feel that I MUST wash out as much of the glue as possible and fluff up the pieces. I also made some markings on these latest pieces that I knew washing out would take care of. And then I… Continue reading Uh oh….
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I dither and dither and procrastinate on decisions ALL.THE.TIME! And then a project comes along that falls into place so fast my head spins! That’s this one, which I believe was orginally a try at improv New York Beauty. I had them finished… Continue reading Sometimes fast is good!
My studio was calling my name today and I went down with the intention of making some string scrap flowers. I had a couple of methods that I wanted to try out so I cleared the table of extras and that’s when it happened! I put fabric on one shelf and a glimpse of bright… Continue reading Glimpse a scrap…
