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 […]

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 […]

MONTHLY

Raw Diamonds Block

I cannot believe that it is already almost the middle of February. I know that I have been busy but where has the time gone?  I was so happy to see this months block of the month in the mail Thursday. I really enjoy sharing this tutorial with you. I will be doing three different […]

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 […]

Hexies Hexies and More Hexies

This has been my Summer! I had not realized until just now how many Hexies I have made and received this Summer. I really love handwork and it is so easy to do just about any where. I have bought most of my papers up to this point from Paper Pieces directly: although I have […]

Books Summer and Books

Here it is July and I find myself watching for more fires this year then in the past. We usually always have a hot dry Summer however this year it has been on the cooler and wetter side of things. So you would think we would have a reprieve. Nope! Where am I going with […]

Having Fun with re-purposing…..

  I had so much fun this weekend…..making these wonderful Candy Jars. I made them using empty Talenti Gelato containers. I love any opportunity to re-purposing containers of any kind. I had help collecting the jars: those that I recruited had no complaints at all. 🙂 There has not been a flavor that has not […]

It is good to try new things as I have done here…….

I just cannot past up a good challenge. In this case it was a challenge in using a new product…..Kraftex.It comes in three colors: white, black and tan. It is quite strong. I tried to tear it and had no luck in doing so.  I used this when I made my wallet (in the above […]
