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”

I Was Featured!

While I was getting caught up on emails this morning, I found an email I hadn’t opened yesterday. I was really enjoying reading about Jennifer’s jaunt to Spring Market and getting caught up in all her adventures, meeting people, seeing treasures and staying in sweet spots. Then at the bottom of her post I sawContinue reading “I Was Featured!”

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”


It’s always a fun time to record finishes. First up I have Charlotte’s sweater knitted, buttons sewed on and the parcel has been mailed! As usual, I forgot to take a picture after it had been soaked and blocked. Somewhere years ago, I was given a handwritten pattern for a children’s sweater pattern that isContinue reading “Q1FAL”

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”

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”

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”
