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 […]

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 […]

March’s Finishes

I cannot believe how fast this month has gone by. I seemed to be spinning out of control with this and that all month long. I had so much fun working on this months goal. I would not have been able to make this beautiful quilt if it hadn’t been for the gifted UFO’s. So […]

March’s One Monthly Goal……

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. It is a Instagram event were you grant wishes for others and in turn you may ask for a wish or two. I have […]

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

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 […]

Show N’ Tell

And then there were 12 🙂 I have got a nice rhythm going with the many QAL’s that I am doing. I have found that if I post my pictures on Sunday ….it works out nicely. I have all week to get them made and there is no pressure. I really do not like how […]

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 […]
