Tonight I start off with poor Bernard Tomic lost his tennis match Wimbledon. He gave it a good try. Feeling not so bad at the moment. Have started quilting my Roses Quilt for Magda. I purchased some extra threads today and had an opportunity to talk with a quilting store owner with regards to what threads are the best. Got some good bits of info. He warned me about one particular thread as it is no longer made in europe as the factory has gone to a…Continue

This is the second blog I've started. Maybe this one will help me keep the other one up to date. We shall see.
As my profile states, I have been quilting since 2003, on and off. I've moved several times through the years and have had to take time off. But recently, I've become very interested in quilted bags and…Continue

I have just returned from week of June 13 in St. Paul MN. I had the opportunity to lecture and teach workshops of Wonderful 1 Fabric Quilts to participants to Minnesota Quilts, INC. The students created some of the finest designs from their kits in one class. Another class they furnished their wallpaper print bordered fabrics and they too created fantastic pieces. Hopefully they will be sharing photos with us soon.
Quilters from other states joined us and were delighted with the…Continue

I've finished my 4th quilt in the series, "What Mean These Stones IV."
This is my first Saturday off in probably 3 months due to a school schedule that required me to work every weekend to get my work hours in. I have a hair appointment then I am hitting some garage sales! Do any of you garage sale (ok, I just turned it into a verb, lol)? What do you hunt for? Any good scores?? Share with us what your best garage sale find was!
This is my first blog so be patient with me! I am going to talk about my ongoing adventure with the red, white, and blue quilt top that I am hand piecing. Now I know that machine…Continue

How many injuries have you had over the years of quilting? Oh the agony we can go through wondering every time we get hurt how long will it be before I can quilt. I have poked my fingers so many times I can't even tell you, but I have some scars from them. Now the Rotary is another thing, I have two long ones that while looking at my ruler I forgot to watch where my hand was, yup I did it right across the knuckles. Then there was the time that I thought I had everything in place and that…Continue
It's raining AGAIN...our pool is not getting uses much this spring/summer - either it's raining, or the water is so cold cause it gets cold at night!! Our exchange student leaves next Wednesday to go back home to Spain, I have not given him his quilt yet - we are having a going away party for him on Sunday - hopefully his 'buds' will write him messages on the back!
Trying to convince my daughter to move up to the room he stayed in - so I can knock some walls down and make my studio…Continue

Well, today I designated a play day. I've been piecing and sewing and today I want to pull out the fabric paints and Paintstiks and just play around and experiment. I haven't done so in ages; I guess I just don't like the mess that happens when I pull out the paints. I need to get an early start because I like working on the dining room table and that's where hubby does his homework. The last time I…Continue

My niece Autumn was here this weekend and started making the "Twister" quilt for one of her friends.
I just came home from Virginia Beach. Just me and the kids. We left the hubby at home. It was a very last minute trip. My Dad has a time share there and at the last minute couldn't use it. I love that I am a stay at home Mommy and could go!
While we were there, they were having their annual art show right on the Boardwalk! It was amazing! I was slightly disappointed that there was not a single quilter. Lots of clothing but no quilts. It seemed wrong somehow. Come on ladies (and gents)…Continue
