Studio Organizing Challenge #3

It’s been awhile since I posted about any organizing I’ve been doing, but over the last couple weeks, I’ve worked a bit on whittling down my mess some more; decluttering, organizing, and putting things away, or sorting things out to get rid of. One of the things I did was reorganize my thread. As a longarm […]

News From the Studio, Episode 1593

There’s been a lot going on around here, since I’ve gotten back on my feet.

My bestie, Victoria Findlay Wolfe, has these adorable template sets available that make the cutest little 4″ finished blocks! There are seven different template sets […]

A Few Fun Things

A Few Fun Things

Since my last blog post, My Cowboy made me go to the doctor, and I’ve taken a round of antibiotics, and I think I’m on the mend. That means I’m back at the longarm with a vengeance, because I only got further and further behind while I was gone and sick. So I thought I’d […]

May 350 Blocks Report

Did I mention I’ve been traveling for the past month? So . . . yeah, I didn’t accomplish much sewing. All the blocks I got done were for Quilt Market samples, and two of those quilts I didn’t even get pictures of, I was in such a hurry to ship them off. So my monthly […]

Rose Marie’s “Abloom” Quilt

I recently quilted a quilt for my friend, Rose Marie. She made this “Abloom” quilt from a pattern in Amy Ellis’s book “Modern Heritage Quilts“.

April 350 Blocks Report

I do NOT want to face the fact that April is already over! My month was spent tending to my goats and their babies, especially little Ranger, after he lost his momma and his twin sister: And standing at the longarm — I quilted more quilts this month than I have so far all year! […]
