Blocks being mailed today, houses are a top

Blocks being mailed today, houses are a top

I am mailing star blocks to Linda, Sharon, and Mary Jane when I head to town this afternoon for errands and my guild meeting. My husband came through his surgery just fine and went back to work last week. We had a round of stomach virus in the house and on Sept. 6 my brother got married…I quilted the quilt my Mom made for them. On Labor Day I decided to get some of the I-Spy house blocks I won into a quilt top. I will be getting it...

Blocks received and life is crazy!

Did I remember to post my 9 blocks after the block was announced? I must have since the picture is in the gallery. I have received all but on of my House Block squishies, but I cannot say whose, because my list is at home and I am sitting in my husband’s hospital room. It has been quite a month. First my newlywed daughter was unable to get permission join her husband in Okinawa after their May 4 wedding. They had 4 days together before he...

No Blocks This Month For Me, But I Finished a Top!

No Blocks This Month For Me, But I Finished a Top!

I really do like this month’s block but life has been way too complicated to get any done.  Christmas sewing….I put it off too long…started Saturday (!!!).  I had on my list a quit for my grand nephew, Remi, the cutest ringbearer that ever was.  Remi just turned 5 and loves Thomas the Train (and anything train), so when I saw 2 FQ stacks of Thomas and Friends fabric on clearance this summer, I bought them.  I decided the...

I really had hoped…

…to get some coffee cups made.  I have been enjoying seeing what everyone has done.  But on my birthday, as I was almost finished with the quilt top I had decided to make earlier in the day, my sewing machine quit.  Whirring but no needle movement.  Broken belt!  Monday I put her in the hospital and I don’t know how long it will be.  Belt had to be ordered.  I’m afraid once I get her back I  have too many projects that need to...

Always do a test block….

….. before cutting all your fabric! I am not happy with how my blocks are turning out.  Why do 1/2 square triangles and flying geese always turn out crooked for me…unless I sew large and trim to size?  I’m not sure if I will have any that are up to par for the lotto.  Maybe I’ll try again later in the...
