Where Have I Been?

Wow, has it been that long? I've got a lot of quilting to do in order to catch up. Okay, so here's the latest. My son and daughter-in law now there's a new baby on the way! Yikes!!! I guess snuggling under that Valentine's Day quilt, did the work! (wink) Any-who! I don't have any baby quilts made. What kind of grandma (mimi) am I? Lots and lots of work to get done. Another bit of news is, I just ordered another sewing machine. "I know" BUT hey, I needed something to get me motivated. Her name is going to be Eleanor :-) Had it not been for Eleanor Burns, I would not have had the courage to cut out one square. My new addition to my quilting room will be the New Janome 8900. I hope shs'e worth her weight gold, or should I say batting because she's going to be my new workhorse. :-)) Time to get busy!!!!

Time to Get Creative





After a year of moving, finishing another degree and organizing the new house, it's time to get creative. I finally figured out how to "knit one purl one" LOL is that hilarious or what? Okay, so here's the proof!

Bed Runners! What a great idea. Okay so this has got to be on my "hoping to DO" list. LOL! Planning a trip to NY and will be digging through my quilting room with the idea of making it beautiful. Will include "under construction" pics soon.

Warm Thoughts....

It's snowing like crazy here but I am filled with warm thoughts of quilting! My new quilting room is a complete disaster with fabric all about the floor and my lovely sewing machines still in their boxes. We moved about a month ago and I've not yet had the time to free my fabric, thread, yarn and batting...(((sigh))) To be continued!

Absent from My Quilting Life...

I've been absent from my quilting life while finishing my MSW degree. Finally, classes will end on December 6th and I can become lost again in my quilting dreams. I've been basting in ideas about what type of quilt to focus on. Already, I have images in my mind of dancing yellow threads and purple buttons...uhm, we'll see what the next creation will be. I'll pick up my camera tomorrow, someone borrowed it....I need to upload pictures of new fabric. I might have been absent from my blog but not the fabric stores.... so I can upload new fabric

Quilters Guilt!

Ok, so it's been forever!! Yes! and I feel awful about it! Ok, so there's been graduations, birthday's, puppy training, writing, etc, etc but NO quilting! That's not good! So, now its time to re-discover my inner cloth and begin quilting again! Look for some coming attractions!

Just In Time for Valentine's Day!





Just finished my son's Valentine's Day Quilt just in time for Valentine's Day Tomorrow! "Whoo-Hoo" With everything going on, I am thankful to have completed it! Hubby had a cold and gave his wife a cold so I have been out of commission for bit. Although my sewing machine is doing very well and ready for the next quilt, I'm not. Gladly, I will be traveling across the pond to London England for a few weeks. However, joyfully and without delay, I will resume more quilting adventures when I return!
