"Oh Kathy and Colleen, glad to hear you are making "some" recovery, albeit slowly. I know the frustration with my heel...will be 90 days since surgery on the 15th. Visit with doctor last week and he said I was doing good, I just…"
"Mary, that is amazing. Afraid my eyes and hands couldn’t manage that detail. But you appear to be a wiz.
Linda, love your block. You are moving right along.
Kris sounds like you will have an exciting time. Cannot get…"
"One more block to do and I can start assembly. Then I have a 2x2 border to make, single row, before final border. There are lots of embellishments to add after it is quilted, like Pom-poms and laces and eyelets, etc. Finished size is…"
"Linda, I am loving your Thimbleberries blocks. Fabric is great. Everyone is doing great, too, on their PHDs.
I try to clean out bobbin area once a week. Embroidery machine a little more often. Even with a filtration system…"
"Ok, my partially finished blocks are done. Now I have the final 2 to assemble then I can put the top together. Probably only get about an hour or so tomorrow as I go to ortho doc to check out heel and see if I need more PT.
Here it is,…"
"Thanks for comments. Yes, Linda, it is called Winter Memories. It was started 2 years ago, so not one of my oldest. I wanted it to throw across sofa after the Christmas quilt is put away. Well, still working on it, but it…"
"Well one of partially completed blocks is ready. Will work on other one tomorrow after visit with mom. Then I will work on the 2 blocks that need to be appliquéd. Once that is finished I can assemble. Here is a look..."
"I need a sewing room like that. I am sitting in mine with my squares cut and ready to sew so I can finish up enough of the pinwheels for the 2 remaining blocks. May need to cut more squares …. think I counted correctly. …"
"Elizabeth, those are very pretty.
Me, I have cut out the squares to do HS blocks to become pinwheels. Fused fabric for last 2 blocks (thought I had 3, yeah!). Hope by tomorrow I can finish the HS/pinwheels and applique the final blocks."
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a crafter. I knit, crochet, sew (fun stuff, no clothes), and quilt. I learned to applique also and love to needle turn, but eyes are not as good as they were. Live in Sun City Anthem in Henderson, NV and belong to the Sewing Club, Arts & Crafts Club and Desert Quilters Guild.
I'm just one kitty shy of being a crazy cat lady. I foster orphan kitties for a rescue organization. I kept all four of my kitties the first time I fostered. I already had 3. I make tiny kittie blankie a with Minky swirl fabric for each kitty to take home. Next kitten season I'm sure I'll be a card carrying crazy cat lady.
Looks like the "friending" worked, but when I try to compose, it is saying I have no friends. Anyway, I have lots of flower patterns I could adapt to the Got Water theme. Thank you for the offer. There is another row by row with watering can and flowers...may wilt the one the can can't reach.
Thanks so much for the you tube site, now I'm going to be in trouble making boxes. I also have some pre-quilted fabric I'd like to get rid of so guess where it's going? Those boxes I think will make good thread catchers by our chairs where we hand sew, will make as quick Xmas gifts foe my quilting friends. Again thanks, Judi
