LDQ #80 Mysteriously Quick and Dirty

Hi guys! This episode is short, and I talk pretty fast. I tried to squeeze it into the small window when my house was empty today. As mentioned in a previous post, I am right on track with the En Provence Mystery Quilt from Bonnie Hunter. I’m still working on my Lady of the Lake […]

I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world…

I know this will look richer once we have added the greens and golds.. right now it looks very much like my childhood bedroom, with pink and purple Barbie accessories strewn everywhere. Here’s my progress thus far on En Provence. I don’t know if I will squeeze out a podcast episode this week.. everyone has […]

Step Away From the Nyquil

I have succumbed to the funk. And this is not the good kind of funk you can shake your booty to, nor does it originate in the vicinity of Uptown. I’ve spent the last couple days in bed with sinus funk. When my sinuses go wonky, my balance gets really bad. I miss my sewing […]

LDQ #79 Purple Patches

I’m right on track with Clue 3 of En Provence, and I’m linking up. I am so enjoying seeing all the posts on Instagram from those of you participating. Here’s where I am. Spinning those seams, again. I didn’t have a wide variety of light purples, but I think it will work out just fine. […]

LDQ #78 Feeling Magenta

September Block – Outlander Stitch Along

Yes, this would have been our September block, had I got it finished in time. I’m still catching up with everything. This time we are stitching Jamie, Himself! You may leave out the whiskers if you prefer your Jamie clean shaven. Those little stitches are tedious! If you choose to do the facial hair, I […]

LDQ Episode #75 Bears and Birds

I talked a lot of quilting in this episode, and I finally got borders added to an old UFO. The second picture shows the fabrics better. Crossing my fingers I can get this quilted soon! I am doing a chapter by chapter discussion of the book I am enjoying. Birds in the Air by Frances […]

A Fall Finish

For the first time in a long while, I can say I finished something. This is a quilt I started many years ago and finally quilted it last week, right before the longarm broke (again) I started with a charm pack of the Salt Box Harvest line. I made half square triangles that are bisected […]
