2014 In Review

One of the best things about blogging is that you can start a post and save it as a draft and add to it before actually posting it. I started this post, in note form, on January 2, 2014. I have added to it over the course of the year so that I have a …

Blogger’s Quilt Festival Entry #2 – Small Quilt

At 60″ in diameter and (if I’ve done my math correctly) 188.5″ in circumference, “Janni’s Christmas Celebration” tree skirt qualifies as a small quilt, I guess.

Some Tuesday Catch-Up

I haven’t been on social media as much as usual lately because I have been working on some projects. The list here is not in the order of completion or dates worked on. It’s just in an order that makes sense to me. First off, I have finished Janni’s Christmas tree skirt! I wanted a …

A New Christmas Tree Skirt Project

I’ve made some progress on a couple of things. First, I got Janni’s Christmas tree skirt to longarmer. I had hoped for custom quilting on it, but I got a phone call on Thursday from the longarmer saying she was booked for custom quilting through June of next year. Sigh. But she promised to make …

Quilting Fun

I have been gettingĀ  in some sewing while the getting is good. Carolyn was planning to finish and block the sweater today, so sometime in the next couple of days I will get the sweater and start embroidering the sleeves. Amy tried it on and definitely only wants the sleeves embroidered, which means I may …

Feb 17


So, I’ve spent several months just kind of moving along in several areas without really being excited about sewing/quilting. I’ve made progress on the paper piecing of my eldest daughter’s Christmas tree skirt. (Haven’t started the one for the youngest daughter and her hubby yet.) I started the Falling Charms quilt and the Disappearing Pinwheel. …
