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?

This Blog Community is what I have missed. I love reading everyone’s blogs. They make me think out of the little box I live … Continue reading
Yesterday I finished my Son and Daughter In Law’s Memory Quilt for their Fur Baby. Rocky was their baby so we wanted something special. I have made several types of memory quilts and they are wonderful for any occasion. This next one is for a friend with Dementia and it is used to help her remember who members of her family are. Sometimes if we … Continue reading Want to Savor Memories?
Time really flies by doesn’t it? I have been working a memory quilt for our Son and Daughter In Law. A few weeks ago they had to put their dog down; it was real hard for them as anyone with pets know about that. Here is a photo of the quilt top for them. Now I need to square it up and quilt it. … Continue reading What happen to the week?
Went to the KC Regional Quilt Festival and saw so many quilts. So many ideas, SO MUCH TALENT, and so many vendors. Took us 4 hours of no stop walking (Hubby was in so much back pain by time we stopped). But it was wonderful. Hopefully next year I can manage to take some of the classes. I know I will buy tickets for 2 … Continue reading Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival
