Using a Bloc-Loc Ruler

I meant to post this earlier in the running of the Garden Path Samplers Block-of-the-Month, but time has gotten away from me. If you’re participating in this BOM, you’ve probably already trimmed lots of triangle squares, but I want to refer you to this video just the same. To get perfectly sized HST (half-square triangle) […]

My 2020 Planner

I said earlier that I’d report back and let you know what I decided to use for a planner this year. Turns out, it’s a relatively boring setup, so I have no good pictures for you, but I will tell you what I’m using, and where I got some of my forms. This is the […]

Keep On Going

Keep On Going

It’s been one month since we wrapped up The Final Countdown. Normally, I lose momentum on the tasks I don’t get finished, and move on to something else, as it is my flitting nature to do. But this year, I really, really want to get my paper under control, and my projects all organized, so […]

January 350 Blocks Report

January is always the easy month. Since we don’t really get the Project officially kicked off until mid-month, we can sort of just ease into the block making every year, and I sure needed that this year. And our goal was only 15 blocks. And guess what? I still didn’t make the goal! If not […]

Hand Stitching Progress

Last year I committed to trying (and should have been committed for trying) 365 Days of Handstitching. It wasn’t easy. I ended up doing hand stitching on 286 days of 2019. I missed 79 days. But I finished 35 projects because of it! I hand stitched the binding on the backs of 22 quilts, finished […]

Snowballs!

Snowballs!

A perfect day to talk about snowballs, since this is the view out my studio window this morning. Ranger doesn’t know it yet, but that hay he’s looking at longingly is just about to get moved across the fence for him and Wyatt! They will love it. But the snowballs I really want to talk […]

January Studio Organizing Challenge

I didn’t get as much done during The Final Countdown as I would have liked, due to some tight deadlines. Those deadlines are met and passed, but now I have more deadlines to meet by the end of this month, so it’s really not getting better for me, as far as finding time to get […]

News From the Studio, Episode 1758

Three weeks into the new year. And I’m not off to a real great start, I must say. On January 2nd, My Cowboy was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. Just one more horrible thing to add to his already long list of incurable ailments. And more pills to take. On the 6th, we both got […]
