Outlander Stitch Along – A. Malcolm, Printer

I am not sure which number this is in the series, so let’s just call it a comeback block. I am working on a page where I will list a compilation of all the blocks for ease of use. For now, let’s get stitching again! I need to re-stitch that A in AND. My markings […]

LDQ #82 Valerie

This episode is dedicated to Valerie Lamont. ~*~ ~*~   I decided not to do a play by play of QuiltCon, because it’s old news now, isn’t it? I did touch on some highlights, and I sure I will continue to do that over the next couple episodes. At the end of this episode, there […]

I am a Queen!

Hi guys. I am participating in a Hive, which is a Block Bee, and February is my month to be Queen. This means I get to pick a block, and all my Worker Bees will make one and send it to me. Then each month I will make a block for the next Queen. Hooray! […]

LDQ #81 Lavender Fields Forever

In this episode, I talked about how I split my En Provence units into two separate quilts! I think I will call the purple one, Lavender Fields Forever.   I finished a crocheted wrap.   I spent some time organizing my embroidery threads, and started a couple small X-stitch projects.  (subversive with naughty words)   […]

Resolutions

Sandy’s (from Quilting for the Rest of Us) theme for this year’s quilty resolutions is “Balance,” Here’s what I have to say about balance in my quilt life.. I have not been particularly good at balance. I can get a little obsessive and forget or neglect to take care of the things that fall outside […]

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

Is that title confusing you? I am a huge fan of The Golden Girls. I am often quoting the show, and sometimes people don’t even know it and they just think I made a clever joke, all on my own. No. I am not funny. I steal all my material, lol. There was an episode […]
