Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018

Wasn’t yesterday fun!! I know I enjoyed visiting the blogs and seeing what the other bloggers are up to and even seeing how many UFOs they have is fun. While I know I have a few, I am definitely behind the mark in having a lot of them. Since I use to sell a lot of my finished stuff or gave it to charities and even to friends and family I use to finish many of the projects I had. Most of my UFOs are from swaps I’ve done on the internet in the late 90s. Even the UFO for my featured day comes from one of those swaps.

Today’s schedule is as follows:

Oh Man, it’s been quite a week. After Monday last week, I was so busy, I just didn’t have the time to do any posting. I needed to finish our wedding gift for our nephew who got married this past Saturday.

I did finish adding the Continuous Line patterns to those of you who ordered the bundles.

On another front, I’ve also been busy finishing up block 10 for Twas The Night and I expect to release that on Friday. Sunbonnet Sue/Sam will also see a release possibly Friday or Monday.

Is Your Christmas Shopping Done??? Lotsa News Today…

New Years Sampler 12-4

Christmas ShoppingSomewhere in this world, at least 1 person hasn’t even started there Christmas shopping. I can remember as a single person always waiting until the day before Christmas to hit the malls and get it done at that time. Back then, there was no internet, the malls and shops were always very busy, parking was a nightmare. When I got married that all changed. Everyone in my new family was not even in the same state we were, so we had no choice but to ship everything. In today’s world, thank goodness for the internet, I can shop online and have it delivered right to them, no need to wrap, no need to guess at what they like or dislike, a gift card does the whole thing nicely. I love gift cards. I do give gifts of my sewing projects, but I’ll be the first to admit, that my sewing this year has concentrated mostly on wedding gifts I’ve made for the wedding were just at, and the wedding we have in February to go to.

I hope you have your shopping and even your sewing done. By the time you get to this date in December, it’s not too likely you’re going to even get a package to someone in time for it to arrive by Christmas Day. I think all the shippers have set today as the last day to do Express type mail, so if your planning to still ship… you need to Express it today.

So today, I’ve asked the previous designers of the Christmas Caroling Row Along Continue reading

Twas The Night Before Christmas Block 8 Released… and Other News…


TTNBC-08The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
gave the lustre of midday to objects below, is block 08 of Twas The Night Before Christmas. Isn’t it a beautiful block?

Much like the first block in some ways but I love the night sky, the snow falling, and the additional trees that the artist added to the block. I do not think it was easy for him to come up with artwork for the lines in this part of the story.

This is the Flickr Reward block.

In other news…. Continue reading

Row By Row Free Pattern Updates & Black Friday Sale…


Well, Jalapeno-Popper-Wontonhere we are, one day before Thanksgiving. I’m guessing most of you are making your preparations for the big day tomorrow. I’m making a simple meal this year, bought our favorite part of the turkey which is the legs, and am just planning to roast them. I’ll make a sweet potato casserole in the morning along with a pumpkin pie.  I’m thinking I might do some Jalapeno Poppers in a wonton… I saw these on Facebook the other day and thought I liked the idea of a putting the popper in a wonton crust so am planning to try them.

So today, I have finished updating the  Continue reading

Coming Next Month Is Row By Row All Over Again…

Row By Row ExperienceAre you excited… I am very excited about finally being able to participate in a full row by row experience.

During the last five years that this event has been held, I have lived in Europe, so could not participate, even last year when we were still there, no shops in Italy participated. There was one in Germany I think and one in the Netherlands, but I never got that far to get to go and enjoy the experience. Instead, I joined some Facebook groups, and the wonderful ladies in those groups picked up kits for me and I was able to experience the fun of the event in that way. I felt guilty tho that I couldn’t do the same for them. In some cases, these women pick up kits for others and drove many many miles to get kits for other people. This year, it’s my turn to try and help and I will go to as many states as humanly possible. I will note those FB groups below if you are planning to participate and I really encourage you to do so, but this event has many good things and like all things, in life, it has some bad. I’m going to walk you thru my experiences last year.

A year and a half ago, Continue reading

Unless Samuel extends the sale, this is the last chance to signup for the coupon codes.

For the next few days, I have an amazing deal for all of you…

Samuel at Calibre Arts has written me in email and they are introducing their new 18-Inch rotating mat. They want to offer my visitors a 50% off coupon for the mat for you to enjoy their mats with. This is an amazing deal for one of their mats and the rotating mats are absolutely fabulous. I love mine well I love all my Calibre Art mats, but the rotating ones are really amazing as the mat does stay in place and turns easily when you need to rotate the mat. The grip on the table is also amazing, the bottom of the mat does not slide or move while your cutting and like all their mats, it heals instantly, cleans up nicely and the lines are also very accurate. These are wonderful mats… I want everyone to have one… If you think you’d like to take them up on their offer, you just need to enter the giveaway below, and tomorrow, I’ll draw 5 names to send the 50% off coupon code to. I’ll do this each day until Saturday, May 6, 2017 .
