A Sentimental Quilter Christmas is over and it's less hectic around here so I thought I'd finish off the year with a bang and try to knock off a few of my Dear Jane blocks. I figured out yesterday that if I make one more block I will be 1/4 of a block away from being a quarter of the way through finishing (That will make Block #56. So, 225 blocks divided by 4 is 56.25. Make sense?)
Dog Under My Desk - Patterns, Tutorials and More! :: Dog Under My Desk Get Carded in some brand new fabrics!! A few weeks ago Robert Kaufman contacted me to see if I wanted to make up some of my Get Carded wallets in their newest fabrics. What they sent me was fantastic! I am completely in love with this cotton lawn in their London Calling line. I wasn’t sure how cotton lawn would work, because it’s so thin and more » Put your hands together for… Gadget Guard!!
MooseStash Quilting I love flags...when the wind blows, they have a life of their own. They represent things, they have stories to tell, they command attention. Heck, it sounds a lot like us quilters, now doesn't it! ;-) My guess is, Madame Samm must have thought the same thing. She and Thearica have once again brought us together to show just who we really are! Thank you ladies for all you do!
As I was in the mood to brighten up our Spanish naya I finally got around to making some cushions that I have been meaning to make for simply ages. I had bought these nautical fabric squares (curtain weight cotton, which makes a much more sturdy cushion) on Ebay for far too much money simply because I had just the project in mind for them. Many months later I came across the fabric online at Dunelm Mill and it would have cost me considerably less had I found this before. I would also have been able to fussy cut them so as not to lose any of the design, which I would have preferred. But hey ho, such is life. Quilting Blog,Tutorials and Quilt Patterns
...but I do need a bit of help! Once again I'm going to have to work some ATWD magic and make it look as though I've been productive this month! I think I'll show you lots of photos to distract you from lack of substance sewing. I've got to admit to being really, really tired at the moment. To give you an idea of what really, really tired looks like I can tell you that in the last seven days I've spent six afternoons in bed, fast asleep for at least three hours each time.

I’m starting to like my new home in Paducah, Kentucky. It’s at least 10 degrees warmer than Chicago and that is absolute spoiling at its best. However, I also have some doubts…. What is this you ask? Obviously, it’s jarred pickled bologna in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. Where might you find it? BaconThenEggs
crocheted rug Although the holidays are rapidly approaching, the call for a new rug was in order yesterday. Remembering one of those PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) under my stairs, I started digging them thru things to find it. It was oh so close to being finished. A movie marathon last night managed to give me just enough time to complete it! Yeah one less PIG laying around.
It’s amazing to me how life works. A choice I made last year, affects things in a much bigger way than I could have imagined. All of a sudden I stand back and say “now I see, I was supposed to be here”. I decided in September that I would stay closer to home in 2014. Bunny Tales
