Finished and Ready to Gift

I seem to have lost track of time, and suddenly it is a month since I last posted. In fact my quilt has been finished for a week. I started it as a practice making stars and intended it as a toddler quilt. I may have gotten a bit carried away.... One of the things… Continue reading Finished and Ready to Gift

Visiting Old Friends

I had a great trip to the US, visiting family and friends.  Lots of laughter and fun, and it was especially wonderful to spend time with my son, who just completed his first year of college.  It really makes me wish I were closer and could see everyone more regularly.  Plus it was wonderful to… Continue reading Visiting Old Friends


My stupendous stitching piece is now happily hanging on my wall and I absolutely love it.  Although I made it with the intention of taking it to the office and giving my office some personality, now that I have it on the wall at home, it may just stay there! The opposite wall currently houses… Continue reading Finished!

First Finish of 2016

Finally! Last year I had about one finish a month until I started my new job.  This year has had a very slow start as far as quilting.  In fact, looking back at my blog, I realize I haven't finished anything since August of last year.  Almost 7 months! This quilt started out a good… Continue reading First Finish of 2016

Work Has Progressed!

I finally had a day I could spend quilting today, and progress has been made!  I had largely finished the walking foot quilting, except for a few spots I thought I might be able to FMQ (in hindsight, that does not look like a good idea!).  This meant I could start on the triangles.  For… Continue reading Work Has Progressed!

In Under the Wire: ALYOF May Goal

I chose an easy goal for May, knowing that I was going to be quite busy this month.  Despite that, I was surprised to see the Lovely Year of Finishes finish link up has been posted already!  Luckily I did not have many threads for my thread sampler, and the owls are fun and easy… Continue reading In Under the Wire: ALYOF May Goal
