Another Few Days of Stitching Fun

I have been too busy since last week to actually sit down and write a post! Last week saw us in two different cities seeing different doctors on different days. DH is doing good and I get to try 8 weeks of physio before the surgeon will do the surgery on my shoulder. Works outContinue reading “Another Few Days of Stitching Fun”

June OMG

As usual, I didn’t quite make my full list of goals for May. My shoulder was just too uncomfortable to manage any extended periods of time free motion quilting on my domestic machine. Add to that a slight run in between my finger and a moving bobbin shuttle! 🥵 The end result just means IContinue reading “June OMG”

Sweet Sunday Sewing, Or Not?

This morning I got up bright and early hoping to see sunshine or the possibility of blue skies to be able to take pictures of some almost finished or finished projects. It was not to be as the grey skies and many grey clouds showed that today would likely be another wet one. I’m notContinue reading “Sweet Sunday Sewing, Or Not?”

Secret Sewing and Sandwiches

I managed to sandwich my two other fundraising quilts for the golf course. In between getting that done and waiting for my basting spray to dry, I was working with some of the almost 300 hst’s I made yesterday for the secret sewing I am doing. Can you see all of the bonus hst’s IContinue reading “Secret Sewing and Sandwiches”

May OMG Finish

So here it is: the first of my three quilts for the golf course fundraiser. It was too much fun to just walk out my front door and take a picture of the quilt on one of the Course picnic tables. I had no way to hang the quilt so I thought this would workContinue reading “May OMG Finish”

A Mother’s Day Finish

Happy Mother’s Day to you all; be you mother, father, grandmother, aunt, son, daughter or person who has shared special time with a child. The days of the stereotype are fading but to me Mothers Day has always been a day where I try to let my children and grandchildren know how much I loveContinue reading “A Mother’s Day Finish”


I can hardly believe that it is May already! I’m also wondering how everyone else did with their OMG. I had planned on getting all 3 quilts done for the fundraiser for the golf course. I did not get even one finished! This is the first of the three and is a completed flimsy. IContinue reading “May OMG”

April OMG

April is going to be a busy month with our annual fundraiser at the Guild and getting ready to head to Vancouver for DH’s 12 week treatment. I’m keeping my goals simple because of the schedule. First up: This pile of fabric goodness will be a finished quilt by month’s end; one of 3 forContinue reading “April OMG”

Once Upon A Story

I know I wasn’t going to start any new projects other than the quilts for the golf course fundraiser until my UFO list is complete but when I saw Marian Pena from Seams to be Sew posting about her upcoming RAL Once Upon A Story in September, well I just had to jump in. TheContinue reading “Once Upon A Story”

Springtime Fun!

It’s time to update you all since I missed posting for National Quilting Day and St. Patrick’s Day! Hopefully your days were both great and you got to play with fabric and drink green beer 🥴! The weather has improved greatly here with beautiful blue skies and temperatures of 12 degrees today. Unfortunately it alsoContinue reading “Springtime Fun!”

February Block Count, UFO’s and Finishes

It was not a great month for sewing with so many doctor’s appointments and tests for DH and myself both. I was also trying to unpack, sort and set up our cute little apartment. I did become obsessed with checking emails and Facebook for pictures and updates on Ryan’s expected little one. It was alsoContinue reading “February Block Count, UFO’s and Finishes”

Marian at Seams to be Sew is hosting another of her great blog Hops in March. I’ve been following the Hops she hosts and having so much fun doing some of the blocks and rows for the row alongs. Her bloggers always have the most inspiring posts and such great eye candy. So I decidedContinue reading “Qwilt Qwazy Queens”

Proofreading and Testing

I have discovered over the past couple of years that I love to pattern test or proofread patterns for other designers. It not only gives me a deadline to do a project, but can help me stretch my skills or learn new ways to do different techniques. As a quilter I love piecing and paperContinue reading “Proofreading and Testing”

Happy Monday

What a whirlwind few days we’ve had! I haven’t had a chance to make the three additional blocks I need for Levi, my on his way now, third great grandchild. They are at the hospital now and the waiting has begun! And yes, it was slipped that baby is a boy and his first nameContinue reading “Happy Monday”

Life Takes Another Turn

The exercise regime that DH and his doctors and therapists have settled on for the next two weeks is having great results. He is walking better, his shoulders are almost level and his range of motion is increasing. Yesterday he reached the point where he was able to do a full hour of activity withoutContinue reading “Life Takes Another Turn”

I have and have been absolutely blown away by so many creative and inspirational people. For several years I have been wanting to create a Storm at Sea quilt. The movement and intricateContinue reading “Storm at Sea”

One Monthly Goal

I was able to meet my January goal of getting some bags and pouches done to get myself organized. I also got caught up with my Quiltville Good Fortune Mystery Quilt. Can I do the same in February? I do have several town trips for doctors appointments and a trip to Kelowna for the MSContinue reading “One Monthly Goal”
