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 […]

I love the bright colorful fabrics of these blocks and think that this would be a perfect finish for March. I was gifted these unfinished blocks in the #getyourquiltywishesgranted3 last year.

Year of Scrappy Triangles

My first 20 blocks of this fantastic sew along!! This is going to be so much fun to play with all the different layouts!! I will have to try harder not to use repeat fabrics. I have enough scraps of green that it shouldn’t be a issue. But that Owl is just so cute (with […]

Where has the time gone?

I cannot believe how quickly time has gotten away from me. I remember the snow taking forever to melt and Spring coming so late. Then BAM it was Summer and the never ending smoke. I know that I told more then one person “This must be how a ham feels in the smoke house!” It […]

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 […]
