I made another round of squares for the challenge quilt today along with getting the pieces of a block ready to work on. I always starch them so they don't stretch when I sew them because some of the pieces are so little. Buck is having ... Read more

Maybe it's allergies or maybe I'm just not all "with it" but today wasn't great. It got warmer as the day went on and now we are having thunder storms. Buck thinks I should be holding him in my lap and Peanut is hiding under the couch. As for... Read more

I did make the fronts of the Minnesota pillows but didn't get the applique done before it started getting to dark to work with black thread. My old eyes just can't do the same things they did even 20 years ago. But they are all cut and ready t... Read more

I woke up a mess this morning and didn't even go get my hair done. Then I slept until almost 1 pm. No idea why I'm so tired and cold. It was kind of cloudy and grey all day but I did make myself to go town and get some groceries. Some things... Read more

I have one of those old 1940's house that's built like a bunker. It usually stays pretty cool even in the high heat and with the AC on even at 78 sometimes it feels like your walking into the frig. when it's really hot out. But once it cools o... Read more

The quilt is finally all one piece. Now to decide if I want to add borders or just put the binding on. I'm leaning towards just putting on the binding but since I have lunch with the guild ladies tomorrow I'll see what they think too. Right n... Read more

My special Spark Friends have come thru and given me energy to finish this quilt. I was beginning to think I should just shove it in a box but it needs to be finished just because it's so different and fun. I made row 9 (not even started this ... Read more

It was a weird day from the get go. Woke up to a thunder storm and no power again. So I read a while and of course the power came back on. But I didn't want to do anything. Not sew, eat, play on my computer or even read anymore. Napping als... Read more

This morning when I started to put the top row on my center section of the quilt....I needed to use math. Now my center section needs to be 10" wider than it is. So after a lot of fussing around with what I was going to do next...I finally dec... Read more

Three times I heard Buck in the living room barking at the front door. Once was because my neighbor had company and there were 3 ladies standing in her driveway talking. That driveway is a good 50 ft. away. But he seemed to think I needed to ... Read more
