Another Fun Project

One of my favourite Pattern Designers, Sandra Walker from MMM Quilts allowed a group of quilters to try out her newest pattern, Heading North, which is scheduled for release Nov. 3, 2022.

Scrap Happy Day

I haven’t been doing a lot of sewing these last few months since we lost our little Clarke, but recently I finished a commission for a baby who is due in September.

It was a Squirrel Party this Month!

I really haven’t been planning much in my sewing space other than some hand stitching. For reasons I won’t go into, my motivation and inspiration is still at an all time low. The this happened: I was lucky and had an email from Sandra regarding her new pattern and was visited by a good friendContinue reading “It was a Squirrel Party this Month!”

June One Monthly Goal Check In

In April, (the last time I set an OMG) I had a goal to make one complete quilt, plan another, and if I can get to the studio, quilt one UFO on the long arm before I headed to Alberta for my great granddaughter’s memorial service. It didn’t happen for so many reasons; too busyContinue reading “June One Monthly Goal Check In”

A New Pattern; A Roll of the Dice

Sandra Walker from MMM Quilts has a fun new pattern being introduced this week and anyone who knows me, knows that I love Sandra’s patterns! This is a great pattern and includes 3 projects; a Baby Quilt, a Bed Runner and a Pillow. A few of us were given the privilege of making projects fromContinue reading “A New Pattern; A Roll of the Dice”

A Fun DrEAMi Project

I was sorting through some bins and drawers looking for my little stash of orphan blocks to find one for the SAHRR. That’s when Samantha started chattering away. I found this sweet stack of fun flannels prints and Samantha told me I just had to do something with it. Cutting, layering fabric and batting andContinue reading “A Fun DrEAMi Project”

Oh Look, An Inner Squirrel Party

Now every quilter is familiar with the expression of “having a squirrel attack” or some variation of it. Our host, Darlene at Creative Latitude has not only welcomed her squirrel, Sally in to her creative space, but shares Sally’s thoughts and ideas with all of us. Sally, by the way has been known to signContinue reading “Oh Look, An Inner Squirrel Party”

September DrEAMi Projects

This has been such a fun month with so many distracting squirrels chasing me around. I think it might have something to do with having time on my hands while working for Elections Canada at the advance polls and just sitting and waiting for people to come and vote! 😉 It all started when IContinue reading “September DrEAMi Projects”

My Version of Let Your Star Shine

I confess to being the recipient of a squirrel attack today. Actually it hit me yesterday but I was just putting the borders on another finish. After a week of playing with scraps, the timing was perfect because Sandra from MMM Quilts just published a new pattern in her Etsy Shop. You all know howContinue reading “My Version of Let Your Star Shine”

Friday Finish

This week I was reading blog posts and a squirrel got me. Not only was it a squirrel, it was a DrEAMI! I have to thank Sandra from MMM Quilts for writing about the sweet Gingham Quilt she wrote about that she saw on Nancy’s blog Grace and Peace Quilting. I just had to makeContinue reading “Friday Finish”

DrEAMI for April

I have been studiously ignoring the squirrels dive bombing me this month and keeping to my To Do Lists until I got an email from a blog reader asking about a quilt top I had made and what pattern it was. I spent a couple of hours looking through my files but couldn’t find aContinue reading “DrEAMI for April”

PQ 12.6 Ab Intra

12.6. AB INTRA The theme for the final PQ Challenge is “Ab Intra” or from within. This past year with our activities curtailed due to the pandemic most of us had had so much more time to have our thoughts turn inward to who we are and why we enjoy our craft so much. WhenContinue reading “PQ 12.6 Ab Intra”

The Eagle has Landed!

I’m finally finished my quilt for a very dear friend. I learned a lot making this quilt; to listen to the longarm and how it feels and sounds when everything is perfect. I learned that unquilting takes days to undo what can be done in an hour. 😉 I also learned that having the perfectContinue reading “The Eagle has Landed!”
