Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button?

It’s Button Day! A day to celebrate buttons! As quilters and crafters, don’t we all LOVE buttons? Buttons are fun! There’s so much you can do with them, and let’s face it, they’re really fun to play with and look at and collect! My Great-Aunt Ruby used to play the Button Game with us — […]

While I made mine in gray and blue, you can always choose your favorite color combo. You can also make it without the embroidery, if you aren’t a fan of so much hand stitching. Straight Arrow […]

In my dreams, my home is clean and warm, and smells like […]

Handstitching

Handstitching

Last week, November 8th marked the end of my second attempt at 100 Days of Handstitching. This time, I finished 13 projects, and moved several others further along, so it was better than my first attempt. I will say there were days when I simply could not take the time to do handwork because I […]

That’s all that’s left of this year! Can you believe it? What are you going to accomplish yet in these 50 days? I have a long to-do list, and there’s a lot I’d still like to finish so that it’s not hanging over my head going into 2018. All throughout each year, I make quilting-related […]

Fresh Feets!

Fresh Feets!

Yesterday was our regularly scheduled appointment with the farrier to have the boys pedicures done. It’s gotten cold here fast, freezes hard at night, and isn’t warming up too much during the day. I guess it IS getting onto winter here, so I shouldn’t be surprised — it’s just that I’m not ready! I wanted […]

October 350 Blocks Report

Was October a banner block-making month for you? It finally was for me — I made a lot of blocks this month! I made 20 blocks for this quilt, which is an alternate version of the Happily Ever After quilt from my book, “A Simple Life: Quilts Inspired by the ’50s”. And I made 180 […]

Spotted. Out and About.

I’ve gone to several quilt shows this year, and readers and customers have also been kind enough to send photos, and some of my fellow guild members have shown me things they’ve done . . . And there have been a lot of quilts made from my patterns floating around in the wild! I’m so […]

MCR Miss Priss

That’s her registered name . . . but we’ve always called her Bonnie. My trusty steed. We have gone so many miles together, I can’t even begin to count. She’s been mine for almost 11 years, and she’s carried me through the Badlands without so much as a misstep; we’ve checked and chased cows, fixed […]
