A Finished Top!

Surrounded by Scraps (or in my case, Surrounded by Happy Scraps) is now a finished top and is off to the longarm quilter! Yay. Last week I started assembling the rows. Here are the first two: Today, I finally completed the top. I realized once I got the center together that I really liked mine …

Some Sewing and Quilting

I’m still working on getting the Surrounded by Scraps top together and have no new pictures, but that’s not the only progress I’ve been making here. La Passacaglia got a little bit of love today.

Friday Funk

Who would have guessed that after several consecutive productive days, I would post on Monday and then immediately become worthless? Ugh! It feels like illness has dogged DH and I for months now!

It’s Monday!

Just thought I’d drop by to update on my weekend progress. Nothing terribly exciting, but some progress nonetheless.

I completed the first of three Rosette …

Life’s Full of Tough Choice, Isn’t It?

Today was a day for decisions. Yesterday, I cut the pieces for the twelfth block for the 2014 FQS Mystery BOM and began piecing it. These were the first two pieces. Now, I must confess that today I realized that my husband had unselfishly shared RSV with me. Hopefully, I won’t feel as lousy as …

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 …
