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.

Blog Hop winner, finishes, wip's etc

St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop was fun. The best part was the comments and new friends on my blog. Quilters are such nice people. The winner is. . . Sandy.
Her prize will be in the mail next week. I'm already thinking what I can give away next time.

I have been working in my sewing room. How cute is this, my first doll quilt.

The candlewicking pillow is done. I love it.

Nine Patch Nirvana quilt that I started in October in Quilters Anonymous Guild. The fabric was from a fat eighth bundle my employers brought me from Quilt Market.

I'm already starting on Christmas gifts because I know I don't get them done if I don't start early. I want to do several of these and they will be just one block somethings.

This is for the PVQG quilt show in May. It will be a 12" block and I can add more fabrics (3) if I want. I will start this next week.

This is a six inch Farmer's Wife quilt block. The HSTs are one inch.

And one last thing--these are the fabrics for my first Doll Quilters Monthly swap. I have been getting to know my partner and she is an awesome lady who collects French dolls.

Now that was a lot for one week, wasn't it? I am having such fun quilting, but I am afraid I will have to spend some time working in my yard soon. Oh well, I do love the fresh vegetables and pretty flowers that come from that work. How could anyone ever get bored with life?

Keep quilting and stay happy.


  1. I love candlewicking! Where did you find The pattern?

  2. Boy, you have been busy, my friend and swap partner - and what a tease! I LOVE those fabrics - all of them (but especially the blue in the center and the red to the right of it). Are you sure you are not reading my mind? I will head to the quilt shop Monday and then tease you with a tiny photo too! (LOL)

  3. Thank you for participating in the Blog Hop
    give Away and visiting my Blog! Regards from Florida!!

  4. Hi Momabill. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I sent you a reply but then noticed you had a "no-reply" comment so wasn't sure if you had gotten it. The embroidery on my blog is Chikan embroidery from India. Anita from Artistic Fingers will soon be offering another free on-line class. You can find more info on her blog. The link is on my sidebar. Enjoy your weekend.
