Do You Know The Quilting Queen?

Doris RiceI do, and she is a great lady. Doris Rice has been someone I’ve known since my first blog hop that I participated in with Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt. She always makes the most wonderful blog hop projects, and she is a quilter who’s blog I follow regularly.

Doris has recently opened a pattern shop on her blog, and I thought I’d send you a little note about it. She’s got some very nice patterns in her shop. They are not digital, so she will be mailing them to you.

I hope you will stop by and see them, perhaps purchase one or two of them and enjoy her quilts.

I’ll be back thursday with the start of Nuts About, and yes, we’ll be seeing Doris in the blog hop and her wonderful project… so let her know you stopped by if you visit and be sure to send her a Hiya.

Enjoy your day,

Marian

Sometimes it helps to see what others have to done to get your own creative juices flowing. I love each one of them, it’s amazing to see what other people do and how they interpret their own colors to use.

So Many Things Going On, I forgot to Post..

stbs-2016F-Two Hearts Tweeting with border-mediumI have been a busy little beaver of late, before ya know it, I might have missed Groundhog Day if I wasn’t looking… This year, winter just seems to be taking it’s toll on my little ole body.. Cold after Cold, flu after flu, and the sneezing is driving me batty.. I got to thinking about Ground Hog day today and realized that I might sneeze it right on by… LOL I know summer people probably look forward to Groundhog Day, because it means that their might only be six weeks of winter left. Traditionally, I like winter to go on as along as it possibly can. I am just not into the heat of summer, in fact I’m more prone to stay inside in the summer than I am any other part of the year.

Are YOU A Little Bit Quilt Qwazy?

Quilt Qwazy Queens

I know I am? Are you? I have a few friends whom I know are.. They are hoping you will join with me and show your Quilt Qwazy side.

I am of the firm belief that all of us in some way or another are just a little bit qwazy. As quilters, we are qwazy about fabric, notions, the latest techniques, to wash or not to wash, going to quilt shows, and we go qwazy even over old Singer machines and at the same time, we want the latest and greatest machine.. The great and amazing thing about quilting is that we all have the same love. That’s what this blog hop is all about.

In honor of National Quilting Day which comes on March 19, 2016 this year, Quilt Qwazy Queens has been created as a way for us to express our own qwaziness thru our love of quilting.

Meet Sonya, From Any Pattern…

Tiger eyesLast month, I was wandering around Craftsy, doing a search, I forget now for what.. when I came upon some patterns that caught my eye.. So I took a look and discovered this pattern designer that I just absolutely fell in love with.

Turns out her name is Sonya, and she comes from a Stained Glass background, and is converting her patterns from stained glass to applique. She has some really amazing patterns. This one to the left is one of them.

I purchased a few of the ones I liked, and then I visited her website, where I found the ability to contact her and let her know how much I loved her patterns and that I would be back to buy some more of them. Sonya also sells her patterns on Craftsy, so if you prefer purchasing them their, you can find them their to. She has several free patterns you can have a look at also.

One New BOTM, One QAL, and One Continuing BOTM…

Lookie, Lookie, Lots of Fun Coming for Everyone.. Nancy Zieman is giving us a new BOTM this year, and it looks great.. I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do.

Janeen at Quilt Art is continuing her Bitty Block series. This is a fun paper piece BOTM, which occurs each month, and Janeen always does some really cool blocks. I have followed this one since she started it and am glad to see she’s going to continue it in 2016.

Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts has come up with a fabulous new Quilt Along and it’s a great quilt. I love the idea of it, she has placed traditional blocks inside as the sweater decoration. This looks really fun and I will definitely be following it.

All three of these new fun events have been added to my BOTM page and my sidebar BOTM displays on the right side of this page.

Don’t miss these really cool BOTMs and Lorna’s very fun QAL, which btw, starts next monday.

How To Upload To Flickr and Add To A Group

flickrHeya Everyone,

I’m feeling pretty much like a dork for not showing ya’ll how to upload to Flickr. I’ll be honest tho, until this weekend, I had absolutely no idea myself on how to do it. You’d think with EQ Seasons last year that I would have known, but I must have just lucked out with the blocks I did upload. So without further ado, here is a quick how to do it.

First, you must have a yahoo id and login. You can’t login to Flickr without one.

Once you are logged in, it will take you to your “feed” wall, which is usually people who are following. If your not following anyone else, it will show you miscellaneous feeds until you start following some people. It will also show you your activity.
