Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2011

Ah….I love the Blogger’s Quilt Festival @ Amy’s Creative Side. I get to look at, literally, hundreds of beautiful quilts in my pajamas. This time around, I have two quilts to share. This first one I call Lunar Eclipse. I love these type of quilts made from blocks of color with[Read more]

Two More Baby Quilts

I’m ahead of the game this month. I got two more quilts to their intended recipients BEFORE they babies were born. One for a little girl to be named Savannah… I had dinner with the young mother-to-be in August and showed her all my quilts. She commented that this was[Read more]

Houndstooth Quilt

I typically don’t make quilts with a lot of little pieces. To be honest, I don’t always have the patience needed to be exact in my piecing. But, when you’re sewing a gazillion bits of fabric together, exactness counts. I had to do a LOT of trimming on this one[Read more]

Grey v. Gray

Did you know there’s an entire website devoted to the Grey v. Gray spelling controversy? Well, it’s not really much of a controversy, but I find I like to use the g-r -E-y spelling. Seems more European, which I found out, it is! According to the site: grAy is how[Read more]

New Year Resolutions and Unfinished List #43

Happy New Year! I typically don’t do New Year resolutions. They just seem like the same ol’ list of things we all know we should be doing and somehow don’t. Eat better, exercise more, try to cut out Diet Pepsi… One year, at a church women’s gathering, we did ‘Good[Read more]

The Final Countdown

Here we are. Christmas Eve day.   Without explaining the madness but letting you know that it is for a very good cause, I started a quilt last night that will be a gift. Yeah, I know, but really, there IS a good reason behind it. So… 6″ blocks, 7 across[Read more]


Three hundred and fifteen. That’s how many Cake Balls my mom and I made last week…     …in 5 different flavors. Luckily for us, it was really cold that day and we could cover them and set them outside to chill, because there wasn’t room in the fridge. Red Velvet[Read more]

Thanksgiving Preparations

MY list for Thanksgiving preparations wasn’t too bad today. My husband has his own portion as well. I also added: Trip to the grocery store (again). Go see new Harry Potter movie. Skip house cleaning, because we’re going to my mom’s anyway! Fight with Blogger to make a post. I’m[Read more]
