Great Post Got Me Thinking

I somehow got to this post:

I think I got there from a post in a post, in a post... Anyway, taking time to ponder and doing that creative thing that comes to you in the spur of the moment is not something that I often do (unless it's seeing material online), then I have lots of ideas for what I "will" do with the material.But by the time the material comes by mail, I am frequently on to other things. Rarely do I honor those spur of the moment ideas...there's ALWAYS too much on my To Do List....

So this article has inspired me to look within and become more "present" in the present and to really appreciate and give in to those intrinsic ideas...and see what follows when I do....stay tuned!


Memorial Day....always remember and give thanks to those who have and continue to serve..remember....freedom isn't have to pay the price, sacrifice...for your liberty!

If I followed these rules, I'd never sew again!


OMG--- broken midarm

I had an important tshirt quilt on the frame! The machine broke in the middle of the row! Now, how to get the machine off the frame with the quilt rolled in between the rollers, without removing the quilt?



My machine is missing the the little wire and screw above the needle, so I jerry-rigged it, finally finished the quilt and now my machine will be visiting the doctors.

BooHoo-I had plans for this week...oh well, I had a crazy thought that I might put MY quilt on the frame and baste it, then try to machine on my Bernina 730! Who knows if I'll be that brave?..




Happy Birthday, Annie

And Bailey!

Latest Read

I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced. The only complaint ( and maybe it's just me) is that I had to write down some of the characters to keep them straight.

I LOVE getting packages

I got this WONDERFUL package of fabric in the mail today:



I got Super Sale price on this and I know I will get 3-4 quilts out of it. The material is so bright and joyful!

Good Read

This book had me hooked from the very first paragraph. I love Patterson's books just because of the short chapters. This was irrelevant in this book, because I just kept reading and reading!

29th Anniversary

We celebrated our 29th Anniversary this year by going to "The Cellar", a french restaraunt designed by the same people who designed the Pirates of the Carribean at Disneyland. We both ordered filet and scallops and ended our meal with Chocolate Soufle (the same dessert we had when we got engaged).

Sinko de Mayo


On The Rack for May

Finally have a day cool enough to quilt in the garage! Want to finish this quilt or my friend! Plus I have an order for another Tshirt quilt from a nurse who recently lost her dad and has all his Harley Davison shirts!


Thankfully, this will be the last quilt I have to quilt in the garage, as my "Sewing Room" is nearly finished!



May Starts

This is a quilty quilt for ME! If you look closely, you can see the cute buttons, thread spools and patterns!

I have had this layer cake forever-finally found a pattern i like called "DoubleSliced Layer Cake" on Missouri Star Quilt Company" you tube video. I am enjoying making this tremendously!
