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.

Suppose guild's closing social was Thursday. We ate tacos, elected new officers, drew for prizes, played quilt bingo and had a great evening. This is the show and tell I should have had finished, but didn't get done until Friday. Its Spaghetti Junction from "Livin' Large 2". I love it.

Here is my May Stash Bee block. Its in the mail to a new home.

I'm the queen bee in June, so I need to make a block and write a tutorial for the group.

I've started a new thing--a postage stamp quilt charm swap. I swapped 2" squares of fabric with 10 people and will be making blocks that look like this:

It was a lot of cutting, but I sent charms to and will be getting some from Sweden, Australia and Wales plus lots of states in the US. I already have some from Pocatello and Illinois. Its so fun to see what people send and to visit with them online.

So much sewing and so little time. Isn't it great? Keep quilting and stay happy.
