Welcome to my blog. Besides my normal everyday life, I quilt, work in a quilt shop,and love to read quilt blogs. I embroider, do counted cross stitching, tat, crochet, knit and want to learn anything that requires the use of needles and thread. Come back often to see what new project I am working on or to read a tip or two.

I've got things to show.  First, I finished this quilt for Suppose.  I did the whole thing from choosing thru quilting.

I used the book "One Line at a Time" by Charlotte Warr Anderson for the quilting instructions.  It is so fun. This quilt is small, but I want to do more quilting on my domestic machine.

Next, I finished my first block for CQJP 2012.  I think I am getting an idea for a project to use my 12 blocks in. I'm ready to start another block.  There are so many ideas and embroidery stitches.  This is very relaxing work for me.

Last night was Suppose Quilt Guild.  We don't usually sew at the first meeting of the month, but last night we did.  We made pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge at allpeoplequilt.com.  These pictures show Leanne, Jennifer and Lona with their finished pillowcases.

You can see in front of Jennifer fabric for her second.  It was a fun evening. 

Now I must go sew.  There are so many projects waiting for my attention.  

Stay happy and keep quilting.
