18 More Steps



Finished 18 more courthouse steps blocks. I now have 80 total. I think I still need more as I am planning on doing a full size quilt. I love visiting all these fabrics.


In making these blocks you would think the 1 1/2 strips would decrease. NOT! So I'll be making plenty more...


I started sewing and stuffing a new doll last night....

Zen Tangles Lecture / Class

One of the guilds I belong to had Joni Fedderson give a lecture and mini demo Thursday evening.
Joni is a Certified Zen Tangle Instructor in South Carolina. She is a very talented lady.

Each of our cards is so very different. Doing zen tangles is very SOOTHING; almost meditative.

New Addition, new addiction?



This past weekend I attended the Quilters of SC annual fall retreat held at White Oak, Winnsboro, SC.



I took a doll making class all weekend with teacher Rita Tompkins. We completed the entire doll except for making the clothes. I'll be listening for her (the doll) suggestions on what she wants to wear. I'm quite pleased with my ART DOLL!!! Isn't she fabulous????






I think she will need some play mates................

Wednesdays Catch









Whoppers!!!!



I know this is primarily a quilting blog but I am having so much fun fishing.


The new waders DH bought me were really too small (the brown pair). The blue pair of waders was a loaner from a neighbor. My new pair of Orvis waders are nice and roomy. That means comfy.


I have been doing a little applique in the afternoons. I'll try and remember to post a picture of my birds.

Fishing Day #2


Day one brought 4 nice trout. (Actually they are all nice).

Day two. I've got 6 nice rainbow trout. The pictlure without a smile is because I'm cold and have hiked half a mile back to the campground.

The rain is moving in tonight. No matter what the weather we always have a great time here.

Scottish Friends Arrive

Our scottish friends arrived yesterday in Charlotte. After leaving the airport we headed for Capt Steves in Fort Mill SC for a wonderful dinner. Dave joined us as well. Too much food but delicious.

Tomorrow we head to the mountains of NC for a week of trout fishing.

To fish in the stream is bliss not to mention that eating the trout is delicious.

Quilty Archives

I've had a very busy weekend. Lots of sewing but not much to show. Lots of binding, embroiderying quilt labels, you get the idea.

Upon trying to download my pictures from todays efforts I had camera problems. Every picture did not want to download. So batteries are charging.

Looking back through my picture archives I've selected a few for quilty content and one for the cat lovers out there.

The red and white patchwork quilt is one that currently is on my dining room table. It is bound but doesn't have a label yet. I need a name: X Marks the spot.

Tinker Belle looking fabulous.









A love quilt I turned in last month to guild.
