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.

Some finishes

I have a few things to show. Do you sometimes slow down and lose a little of your enthusiasm? I do, but I have it all back now. First of all let me say that I have seen the new Quilt Sampler Magazine and Suppose, where I work, is the first shop featured. It is a really nice article.

Union Station is finished and will be hanging at Suppose.

Gardener's Angel for spring is finished and just needs a frame.

One more crazy quilt block is finished.

Its good to have some things finished. Now on the other finishes and maybe some brand new projects.

Keep quilting and stay happy.

Still Working

I wanted to show some pics from Monday's guild. We were learning Stack'n Whack. Jennifer and I had already cut our block sets and were ready to sew when we got there. Here are some ladies just learning to match fabric repeats and cut sets:

I can't wait to see how this one turns out.

This is Susan's first fan:

These are some of Jennifer's fans:

Here are some of mine:

I am binding a quilt for the store today. Pictures will come next time. Last night at another guild, I started an English paper piecing project. It is my first. I think I will like this. And I signed up for a charm swap this week for a postage stamp quilt. Thousands of small squares will be a real challenge. This might not be seen for years.

We are busy at Suppose preparing for Shop Hop next week and then for the Quilt Sampler magazine release. So exciting.

Keep quilting and stay happy.

Thursday Fun

I finished the first quilt for Doll Quilters Monthly. I will be sending it to Nancy tomorrow, so I can't show the whole thing. Here is the teaser she can see. . .

I also made the Stashbee blocks for Beth.

She chose a very easy block, so I just got it done. Then I won't have to worry about it at the end of the month. You see, I have a new project I need to spend some time on.

Two members of Suppose Guild are having babies soon and one very special daughter has just announced her big news. She has been making and saving quilts and receiving blankets for years, but she does not know how to knit. The next ones will be red.

I'm excited today because I just got a new book in the mail, "The Magic of Crazy Quilting" by Marsha Michler. She is amazing. I can't wait to settle down and read for an hour or so tonight.

Keep quilting and stay happy.
