2019 Final Countdown Task Three

Well, yesterday was one of those days. I found every possible way to procrastinate (such as these), and never even stepped foot into my sewing room. But in my defense, I do have some tight January longarm deadlines, so I spent my time running the longarm, and even tho I wanted to, I did not […]

2019 Final Countdown Task Two

Yikes! I cleaned out a file drawer, started on another one, went through a pile of magazines, gathered all the paperwork I need to send to my accountant, sorted through a box of old patterns and passed the ones I didn’t want on to a friend, and found a place for the ones I want […]

The 11th Annual Final Countdown

Well! That flew by, didn’t it? Another year — gone in a flash. We’re at the threshold of a new decade even, so that means it’s time to count down the final few days of 2019. I feel like I made better progress this past year than I did the year before, but how is […]

  Craft in America on PBS is airing an episode on QUILTS! Tonight! You’ll have to check your local listings for the time. The episode features 4 quilters, each with a very different style, and also features the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, and some of the things they do. I think it’s wonderful […]

Rodeo Queen

Merry Christmas!! I realize I’m terribly late getting this year’s Prairie Moon Ranch Cowboy Boot Christmas Stocking published, but what better day than today to be late with it, huh? This year’s stocking is called “Rodeo Queen”. I’ve been wanting to make a mostly white stocking for several years, and Rodeo Queen is my attempt […]

It’s That Time of Year

The time of year for me to decide what type of planner I will use for the next year. I change it every year, and am still trying to find THE perfect planner for me. For 2016, I put together THIS planner, and I’ve used it ever since in some form or another. It has […]

One last chance for an Organizing Challenge this year! But never fear — we WILL be doing The Final Countdown again, so tune in on the last three days of 2019 for that. I didn’t get done with last month’s challenge, as usual, and the main reason is because I cannot find the staple gun […]

November 350 Blocks Report

Is it December 3rd already??? Sorry I’m late with this month’s post, but I took a few days off over Thanksgiving. I had some other things to do that did not involve quilting or the computer. And now I’m struggling to get back at it. I can’t believe there are only a few days left […]

November Studio Organizing Challenge

I’ve skipped a few months on the organizing thing. But something about the weather turning always puts me back into organizing mode. I guess because I love to be cozy in the winter, and I can’t be cozy if things are in a mess. Winter is also my time to NOT travel as much, which […]
