Hubby surprised me with a “Road Trip>” We left Wed, mid morning and went to Batesville, AR. to Marshall’s Dry Goods. It is a large fabric warehouse and is open to the public. I was disappointed when I got there and found out that 1/2 the store in the warehouse is only for business or if you want no less than 3 whole bolts. The … Continue reading Such a wonderful few days
I finished the quilt top and now trying to decide on the borders. Original idea was green, but the shades of green are taking over so I am thinking of a Wine color with a light purple(not lavender). What do you think would be good?The blue gets lost, and I do like the wine. Suggestions? All that is left are the borders and binding….AND TEARING THE … Continue reading Top finished
I have been working on my Illusions Quilt, yard work, and family things, totally forgetting to keep up our blog. I have 3 rows of the Illusions Quilt together and hopefully tonight I will be able to finish piecing. I can already see the different circles in it. 5 blocks left to piece. I enjoy paper piecing, but hate ripping the paper off. Something … Continue reading Can’t believe I am so behind
Actually I don’t have the date for this flyer, but if you notice the price for quilting you will have some sort of idea. I got this in a bunch of things at an auction. Was fun to see the items in Pizza boxes. Sorry, no Pizza’s. Any suggestions of the dates of this? My thoughts are 50’s or 60’s. I also got of goodies … Continue reading Quilting from long ago.
Blocks B-E are finished and Block A is almost finished. Maybe tonight I will have those finished. Then put the rows together. These are the blocks and then the layout for these. I want to get these ready for the quilting by the weekend. Let’s just hope my plans work out. Seldom do they, but the nice thing is there is always tomorrow. I sit … Continue reading A Little Closer to being Finished
I can’t believe that July is almost over. I need to remember how hot the days have been with temps at 90 and up, but the humidity 10 degrees higher, this winter when it is 0 or below. The last 2 weeks have been busy but now it is slowing down and I can spend time finishing up my WIPs. 3 quilts that need to … Continue reading July is almost over
I started this Illusions quilt a while back and then had to put it aside for many other things happening, so now I am working on it today. Maybe I will get it finished….17 blocks finished and 31 more to go. I am happy to be working on this again. I am enjoying paper piecing. It is taking a little longer than I thought, but … Continue reading In process
Good morning all. I have been quilting a lap quilt so I have been quiet the last few days. I have been working on a lap quilt pattern I tested for a lady and yesterday at 5:30 pm I finished it. I quilted in every seam and then stitched more in the black. Now on to the next project. My guild is making umbrellas for … Continue reading Finished and now a new project?
We had our craft fair today and it was great. It is strange, but the items we had new this year no one looked at, but things we have had for a few years and debated on putting in are all gone. You never know what someone will want. This is my oldest Daughter, Alicia and me after we set the booth up. Alicia is … Continue reading Craft Fair is done.
How on earth does anyone find the time for all the “Need to dos, and want to dos” all done in a day? We are working on getting ready for the Craft fair this weekend. Then I will have the time to quilt my quilt top and hopefully finish the Illusion Quilt I am working on. I want to learn to make pretty and cute … Continue reading How do you find the time?
