What Quilt Pattern would you use?

Here’s the first paragraph in my book Butter in the Well that sets the scene for the story.

“Go back to a time when there are no streets, roads, or cars. Imagine there are no buildings, homes, hospitals, or grocery stores around the corner. All of your family’s belongings fit in a small wooden wagon. The year is 1868. There is…

Expat Women Are Patchwork Quilting

Historically, patchwork and quilting have been a part of many women’s lives. From the humble beginnings of patchwork as a means of rendering old clothing’s continued use to the joyfulness of the harlequin’s costume, from rough, haphazard patching of worn areas to geometric traditional block designs, back to improvisational roots and onward to fine art, patchwork has for centuries kept older textiles in service even as it permitted and encouraged artistic expression and colorful new creations.… Continue

Wacom tablet - laughing at myself

I just got a Wacom graphics tablet to help with digitizing in 4D quilt and my 4D embroidery software.  I was tired of trying to work with my jiggly mouse lines.  Well... it's obviously going to take some practice to use the pen tablet - my first results were worse than the mouse!

Why I wrote Butter in the Well

Twenty years ago I wrote my first book Butter in the Well. Writing was a new adventure for me, brought on by my husband’s job transfer to another state. I was homesick and started writing about the Swedish woman who left her country and…

Website finally

My website is finally up.  I am pretty technically challenged so this was a real step outside my box for me.  I hope you will stop by and I would appreciate any feedback on how to improve it. I am not easily offended so please be honest.

Is everyone busy sewing for Christmas? I am not sure I will get any finished this year but my hope is I will be retiring at the end of the year and then I can find time to sew again.

Just joined the mystery  quilt. I can hardly wait to go…

What to do

Well, here it is almost the end of October and I haven't finished my Christmas shopping.  This is the first year since I can remember that I haven't been done by the end of July.  It is true, I am doing a lot more handmade items and those have been stuck away, ready to wrap.  I'm a little at lose ends because I am not sure what to do next.  I have one king size quilt top that needs to…

My Love Affair with Quilting

When I was a child, my grandmother and her family/friends had quilting bees and she would take me with her.  My playhouse was under whatever quilt they were working on at the time.  It was in an old Victorian style house in a huge upstairs room.  I'm sure if I could go back to that room, it wouldn't be as big as I perceived it to be!  I have one of the last quilts my grandmother made - it's tattered and worn but  an absolute treasure to me.  I've always enjoyed sewing and in my young adult…

Memory Quilt

With working on the memory quilt for my in-laws I have decided that I need to make one for myself.  I was 42 when when my hubby and I got married so if we are alive for a 50 year anniversary, I will be 92.  It is my second marriage so I have children and such to make a memory quilt.  The first grandchild is on it's way so I have set a time limit of either age 60 or 65 depending if my kids are done having their own kids by whichever age.  To start with I am in the process of scanning the…

Hello from Adelaide South Australia.

Never thought I would post a picture of a dollie that I made last week.  I sent it to my best friends mum who turned 80 recently.  Haven't done any crotcheting for over 12 months and whilst I was making it, I developed neck and shoulder pains.  Thank goodness the pain has gone now, don't think I will put myself under such pressure to get something finished so quickly next time. It was truly a wonderful pleasure to give it to Robyn's mum.  She's has been a good friend to me for many years and I… Continue

Avoid all distraction!

Hi everyone. I haven't been on here for quite awhile. Now I'll probably looking at all of YOUR beautiful work everyday. I committed the Ultimate quilting "Sin"and let something distract me while using my rotary cutter! My neighbors now call me "slash"... As I have always cautioned my children and anyone new to sewing, PLEASE be careful! It only takes a milisecond to severe your skin! Now I am bored to death as I can't sew (or cut) for a while!
