Sum Fun Lynx

Posted on May 16, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in Inspiration, Quilt-Alongs & Bees

I’ve been seeing so many cute things that look like they’d be fun online lately. It’s all I can do not to start some of them! So, I thought I’d share them with you, and just live vicariously through watching other people do them, until I get my own mess a bit more under control. […]

May Studio Organizing Challenge

Posted on May 15, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in Studio Organizing Challenge

Well! I’m seriously failing at the organization thing so far this year. I got off to a good start, but then it came to a screeching halt (right around the time I ran over My Cowboy with my truck — ahem). I did go through a lot of paper last month, but it was all […]

April Studio Organizing Challenge

It’s already time for the next Studio Organizing Challenge, and I’m still working on the last two! I spent quite a bit of time working on my fabric re-organization, but seriously, it doesn’t look a bit better than it did. And I’m using up quite a bit of it as I go, too. I’ve pieced […]

Summertime Dresser Scarf (and a correction)

Today I’m back with a bonus project that goes along with the Summertime Sampler Block-of-the-Month quilts — an embroidered dresser scarf! Before I get into that, however, another correction needs to be made to the booklet — yikes! I pride myself on not having mistakes in my patterns, but I guess pride goeth before a […]

Posted on April 5, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in Miscellaneous, Studio News

Last Wednesday, my iron died. Yesterday, I bought a new one exactly like it. It’s a Shark . . . the most inexpensive model they make . . . and I love it. Yes, the old one died on me, but guess what? So has every other iron I’ve ever purchased, no matter how much […]

March 350 Blocks Report

Yeeeoooooooooooooowwwww! Another month done gone! (To paraphrase one of my favorite old songs by Bobby Bare: Marie Laveau) How was your month? We still had mostly horrible weather, but did have a few good days. Oddly, the warmer it got outside, the colder I felt inside — I think winter got into my bones this […]

News From the Ranch, Episode 1712

It’s been a super busy month around the ol’ ranch, especially for me. I’m doing everything by myself right now . . . all the chores, all the extra farm stuff, all the errands, all the cooking, all my own work, PLUS . . . playing nurse to My Cowboy . . . which is […]
