    UFO 1-My Tuffet

    Posted on January 15, 2018 by in Blog

    Pin ItHere is my first 2018 UFO Challenge project. In the true sense of the word, it doesn’t really fit the definition of an “unfinished” project.  However, it does involve cleaning out my stash and repurposing stored stuff into a useful item.  Since the main purpose of this challenge is to move stuff from storage to […]

    January 2018 UFOs of the Month

    Posted on January 1, 2018 by in Blog

    Pin ItSeems kind of strange, not designing a new block of the month, but as I explained to you last month, I really need to finish what I have started because I have way too many Un-Finished Objects hanging around.  However, on the first of each month, a revised version of one of my original blocks […]

    November 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on November 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItOnly two more blocks in our series! I didn’t think I was going to get them all done.  Once again we have an issue with the lack of flowers that begin with “Y” unless you use Yellow as part of the name.  Maybe not a lack, but they need to be something that is […]

    October 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on October 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItWe are coming down to the end of our alphabet flowers and one starting with “X” was needed.  Very few choices available, but I found this one, Xyris.  You may never have heard of it, and neither had I, but here is the definition from the dictionary. I am thinking of it as a […]

    Christmas Carol Row-Along is Here!

    Posted on September 4, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItDeck the Halls with Boughs of Holly!  Have you ever gone Christmas Caroling?  We have done it a few times.  Trouble is our neighborhood is very spread out because we live on large parcels of land.  We have to drive from house to house instead of walking, but it is a fun thing to […]

    September 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on September 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItMy wild rose. These bloom every spring through the summer and are deer resistant, not like domesticated roses and have been very inspirational.   This quilt was included in my book “A Thread Runs Through it….” published in 1999.  I still have copies available at a special price, if you are interested.  You can see […]

    August 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on August 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItThis month was an easy pick, I could only “pick” Violet!  The aroma of violets is so lovely I have them growing in an old tin wash tub with Columbine on my upper deck.  If I want flowers around here I have to grow them in pots out of reach of the deer and […]
