I'm falling behind because I let the stresses get to me. Tomorrow I have to get back to what needs to be mailed and get it done. It might not all get mailed until Monday but then I could say I'm done. That would be a good feeling. Had ... Read more

I've heard this several times...most quilters would have to live to 257 in order to complete what they have. That does not include what you will add to your pile. I've always thought I needed several lifetimes since I started quilting and my h... Read more

Off on an idea again
Thursday, November 21, 2019      4 comments

I should stop getting ideas. Today it caused a lot of seam ripping out and an idea for a really fun Christmas quilt. This is actually a pattern for a Christmas card holder. But I left the big pocket off the bottom and decided I'd much rather ... Read more
