Working on my Journal Inserts…….

I have been so excited to work on my new Blank Inserts (3 on the right are from Planner Perfect and the one on the far left is from Notebook Therapy). I have been waiting for June to arrive, to transfer myself into my Chic Sparrow – Odyssey Deluxe Elysium Narrow(now a retired color). It […]

How do I stay Organized?

BLOCKKEEPERS!! I have been asked a few times now,  ‘How do I keep my blocks organized?’ I talked about this in depth in a former post HERE. With all the blocks that I make, I have found this to be my absolutely favorite way to store my blocks. I tend to work on many projects […]

Boho Box

June’s Boho Berry Box is Here!

I have really become a fan of subscription boxes. I current am a member of two, the #bohoberrybox and #quiltybox. I think what I love about them is that I can pick and choose my months when I receive. I have to say that the Boho Berry Box keeps getting better and better. Kara seems […]

May’s One Monthly Goal

  I am so happy that May is here! I love the changing of seasons! Flowers blooming, trees leafing out, the birds are singing and the bees are buzzing. We lost our loyal dog ‘Lucky’ right before Christmas and we have felt his loss daily. The sunny spot in the situation is all the Quail, […]

Farewell April…….

I can hardly believe how fast this last month has gone by.  This has been such a cold Spring. We finally had three fantastic days in the high 80’s but then we dropped back down into the 60’s. I really need to get outside. I am perpetually behind. Then I sit and think about all […]

April’s One Monthly Goal

Once again I’m linking up to Elm Street Quilts for the monthly – One Monthly Goal – challenge. I have been doing really well up to this point and couldn’t be happier.👏😄 So as I was going through my UFO list, trying to pick a winner, my eyes kept traveling back to my piles on […]

Goals

February’s Goal Met

I remember when I was little…I wanted time to go by faster. I was one of those kids who loved school and couldn’t wait for school to start. I know there were so many times when I would ask my mom when was summer over. Don’t get me wrong, I was a water baby and […]

February’s One Monthly Goal

I missed the deadline last month to get in on The One Monthly Goal with Elm Street Quilts: so I made sure that I marked the date down for this month. I am hoping that this will help keep me organized and on task. I have decided that is one of my personal goals this […]

Goals for 2018….

   Just in the nick of time 🙂 I have been very busy organizing my up coming projects and working on clearing out my old inventory. I just revamped my website which took way longer then I had wanted: as these things tend to do. So with that said my FIRST GOAL for 2018 is […]

Cleaning One’s Machine…..

This is what happens when you haven’t cleaned your machine or changed the needle. Ugly stitches!! The tension is all a mess and the needle is dull. I have a vintage DAQ 555-3 that sits in a oil bath. It is a Juki and a real work horse!! I love my machine but I haven’t […]

Reuse, Re-purpose and Recycle….

I have been an advocate of this philosophy all my life. I have at ever opportunity implemented this lifestyle. Most often it has popped up in my crafting; whether for a school drive or as a Librarian: with everything in between. I came across this swap on my Instagram feed and I could not pass […]

Every Good Planner needs a Cover

I was a very lucky recipient of this Beautiful Quilter’s Planner. My friend and fellow Quilter Jenn @jt_quilter  completely caught me off guard with this very generous gift. It is also one of the reasons that I started the #52weekswithTheQuiltersPlanner QAL. If you want to see my blocks you can follow along on my Instagram […]
