There’s a Shark in my Sewing Room!

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 […]

This year, on Sunday afternoons, I’ve been trying to devote some time to “selfish sewing”. I seriously need to move some of my own projects along, so I’ve set aside a little bit of dedicated time to work on them each week. In my efforts to purge and clean, I noticed that my orphan block […]

I would like to announce right here at the beginning of this post, that I have not purchased a single piece of fabric so far this year . . . yet. Part of my success so far is that I’m not much of an online shopper, and I haven’t really gone anywhere because of the […]

Flying Geese and a Correction

Today’s post is for those of you who are working along on the Summertime Sampler Block-of-the-Month quilts.

This Week

We’re past Hump Day already, and I don’t feel like I’ve done one single productive thing yet this week. Fortunately, I was at my guild’s spring retreat last weekend at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop’s fabulous retreat center, where I did move a few projects forward with some uninterrupted sewing time. We got to watch the […]

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

My Grandma used to always tell me: “If you don’t slow down when you need to, life will slow you down.” Are Grandmas ever wrong? I think not! I must have really needed to slow down, because so far, I’ve been forced to take this entire year a lot slower! I always try to be […]

It’s business as usual around here — never a dull moment! Last night, it stormed all night long with horrible lightning and loud thunder. I didn’t get much sleep — I’m a storm chicken! It’s been storming off and on for the last few weeks. When it’s not storming, we have sweltering temps in the […]

There’s been a lot going on around here, since I’ve gotten back on my feet. Mostly standing at the longarm, but I manage to fill in the gaps with lots of other things, and as always, interruptions abound! You know there’s been some quilting goin’ on around here when your Cowboy walks in the house […]
