Finish Number Two for Quarter Two

I’m pretty sure that I could spend many minutes apologizing for my absence, but you aren’t here to read whiny stuff, so let’s get to the good stuff! I finished another quilt! Really. And it’s a wedding gift for a wedding that is not until July 15! I’m on top of it! I’ve handed it …

I’m Still Here

Okay, the third time should be the charm, right? I’ve already written this post twice and had it not post. I updated WordPress today and I’m wondering if that is the problem. We will see! I am so sorry that I haven’t posted an update sooner. I’ve been doing a bit in the sewing room, …

Sunday Evening Catch Up

If you missed the Craftsy supplies sale because I failed to post about it, I am so very sorry. It’s been a weird week. But over the last couple weeks, I have done some quilting, other than the Surrounded by Scraps finish. For example: I did a little bit on La Passacaglia during the knitting …

Q1 Finish-A-Long Wrap Up

Back in January, I posted my list for this first quarter. You can look at it, complete with pictures, here. I was aiming high. I mentioned five possible finishes. I actually finished the first two items, the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM and the Birds in the Air, AKA My Birds Are Geese. I didn’t even …

March-A-Long Week 3

My third week of March-A-Long didn’t fare much better than last week. I’m still sicker than I’d like to be so, although I have read several quilting books. I also managed to do a little bit of quilting. On Sunday, I started assembling the rows for the 2014 Designer Mystery BOM. I got the first …

March-A-Long Week 3

Well, the week began very very well! I made big progress on the 2014 Designer Mystery BOM, including making some of the largest hourglass blocks I’ve ever seen – 12 1/2 inches. The next step is to make 12 1/2 inch HSTs and I haven’t gotten to that yet because I’ve been sick. Yep, still …

March-A-Long Week 2

I did not get anywhere near as much accomplished as I had hoped before the week started. I think the midweek power outage threw off my plans, as did many basketball games. But I averaged way more than 15 minutes a day. Sunday, March 5 – I started work on a test block for Katie, …

This is how it looked …

Recent Progress

With so many Twilters at QuiltCon last weekend, Nonnie of Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams instigated a #NoQC sew-in. I was excited to take part. Of course, I also watched all the Twilters Facebook posts, tweets and Instagram posts. I would have loved to be there, if only to meet so many Twilters in real life. Although …
