Very Brief Update

I must confess that I had nothing to do with the creation of this little snail. Carolyn knitted crocheted him. Isn’t he adorable? She brought him to coffee one day and I took pictures so I could share him with you. The colors might not be quite what one wants sitting on an orange table …

This is the strangest Easter in years since we are not home an are not going to church. We are dogsitting this gorgeous guy: Because he misses his mommy so much, our method of dogsitting includes never leaving him alone while we are here. So, no church for us. Part of visiting his mommy includes …

A Little Bit of Progress

I really have been working on some sewing related stuff. Honest. During the Super Bowl, I did a little hand piecing on Block 12 of the 2011 Designer Mystery BOM, a very little! I also did some more work on the hearts quilt and got four rows sewn together. I also assembled the fifth row, …

He hasn’t really taken …

I’m Ready

Since there are so many football games on over the next few days, I spent some time last night cutting the fabric for hand piecing the next blocks for the two Designer Mystery BOMs I’m hand piecing. I also have completed the Scrap in a Box top. I opted not to use the batik I …

Quick – Last Saturday’s Update!

I just need to show you what I did last Saturday during the football game (which, admittedly is not much because the game was so exciting I forgot to sew some of the time). I had made finishing this block take forever with the multiple piecing mistakes I had made. Here’s the one I found …

Update Before Football Sewing – and a Craftsy Sale

First, I’ll update you on my quilting progress. Then I’ll tell you about the Craftsy sale, which makes the last part of this post and advertisement. Now you’ve been warned. I did get the wedding quilt top finished in time to get it to the quilt shop by Tuesday when the longarmers pick up the …
