As our youngest son commented  "Its good to see the rooms cluttered with things instead of debris" - that was certainly a welcomed way… Continue reading You Are Now Entering A Stress-Free Zone

What To Pack For a Sew-In or Quilt Retreat

I dearly love sewing/quilting with my friends. Sew-ins and quilt retreats are, well, sew much fun! There's the opportunity to work on old projects (UFO's), new projects, and sometimes a quick trip to a local shop to purchase more fabric for an impromptu project! I thought I'd share a few tips and thoughts for your next… Continue reading What To Pack For a Sew-In or Quilt Retreat

Sewing On Gilligan’s Island

A three-hour tour....a three-hour tour....we can all sing along to that famous theme song. It's been like a three-week tour as I sit here and wonder just where did May go? A week or two ago I posted about sewing outside and someone said: "just like Gilligan's Island!" So I just had to google to… Continue reading Sewing On Gilligan’s Island

Quilt Story Saturday – My Dangling Carrot

Today's Quilt Story Saturday is a tale of a quilt I created and called "My Dangling Carrot".  Leftover orphans blocks were included in the quilt featured a few weeks ago called My Colorful Past. It certainly doesn't seem like 10 years ago, well, technically a little over 9 based on the time of year. Settle… Continue reading Quilt Story Saturday – My Dangling Carrot

My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday

I remember waking up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. The Jetsons and Yogi Bear were among my favorites. I especially liked the way Jane could look so perfectly made up when talking on her futuristic phone. If I could make that come true I might be tempted to use FaceTime or Skype....until then, no thank… Continue reading My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday
