  • Projects Finished and in Progress

    Posted on October 19, 2014 by bdieges in Blog.

    Pin ItI am taking a little time off from quilting to share with you what I have been doing.  When I am not blogging or on Facebook I am busy doing stuff, so when you don’t hear from me that is why.  I have not figured out how to do this blogging and Facebook thing […]

    Starflowers and Border

    Posted on September 18, 2014 by bdieges in Blog.

    Pin ItOver a year ago, time flies when you are having fun, I posted about putting all the blocks-of-the-month for 2010 together and that I was working on the border.  There was a tutorial on appliqueing skinny stems.  Click tutorial, if you want to look at it. Finally finished the four borders and sewed them on today. […]

    Posted on August 22, 2014 by bdieges in Blog.

  • Knit or quilt, quilt or knit

    Posted on May 28, 2014 by bdieges in Blog.

    Pin ItShould I quilt or should I knit? Which one wins out? Depends on if I need to get some hand work done.  Right now I don’t have an applique project going, so I fall back on knitting.  Have never crocheted, tried it, but had issues with that hook!  Feel more confident using two needles, […]

    Posted on April 28, 2014 by bdieges in Blog.

    Pin ItSaw a little Snap Bag being made on Gourmet Quilter and thought that I would make one too, well actually made two.  You use pieces of metal measuring tape for the closure. Made mine a little shorter than hers, but it fits better in my purse at this size.  You can make them any size, […]

    Pin ItI have been so busy sewing that I haven’t found the time to post anything.  A couple months ago I posted a “practice” dress that I made for our granddaughter, as a trial run for her First Communion dress I was planning to make. As I said then, the hardest part of sewing for […]

  • Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

    Posted on April 6, 2014 by bdieges in Blog.

    Pin ItNothing to do with quilting, but thought I would share with you how I spent today in the kitchen, I wasn’t cooking, I was organizing.  A while ago, I had decided that my herbs and spices needed to be organized. There wasn’t enough room for all of them in one place, so they were […]
