Wonderful Wednesday

Had some fun today playing with scraps. 😄 I’ve been busy doing some organizing and redrafting patterns. I even drew out a quilting design on a quilt top. It was one of those days I just couldn’t settle to any one project. I think that it must be the start of spring fever. The weatherContinue reading “Wonderful Wednesday”

Scrappy Saturday

We are still suffering from nasty, cold weather here but you wouldn’t know it by the state of my sewing table! This month’s RSC is yellow.

Playing With Scraps

In keeping with my goal to clean out my scrap bins, I cut several stacks of 2 1/2” and 4 1/2” squares with my Accuquilt cutter and dies.

Sunday Sewing

It was Canada Day on Wednesday. When Canada first became a country the day was called Dominion Day. I’m not quite sure when the name got changed. Most celebrations were cancelled because of the pandemic. Fireworks were set off in so many cities, concerts were streamed and people mostly were safe distancing when they didContinue reading “Sunday Sewing”

Another DrEAMI Project

I saw a post on Desert Sky Quilting that had me intrigued with the thought of doing another fun scrappy project. You know what it’s like when the squirrels start doing their dance around you and won’t let up until you drop everything and make it? That’s what happened to me – the attack ofContinue reading “Another DrEAMI Project”
