Feeding the machine...

Life has been extra trying lately.  I been sewing as a way of relieving stress.

In a manner of using up a drawer full of 1.5 inch strips I have been making log cabin blocks.  Any and all fabric types work.  I have completed close to 100 8.5 inch blocks. 

Linking to Log Cabin Loonies

Our fur baby Mr Tale took sick and was taken to the Vet. Diagnosed with kidney failure, he died last night. The doctors did everything to try to reverse the kidney failure. So sad, he was only five years old. He had a wonderful personality and loved to show off on the kitty condo. He was commonly seen grooming / loving one of his two litter mate sisters.

Blocks make tops

I have had this pile of neutral string blocks and it was time to use them.  I love how this came out.  This will be quilted for a quilty hug.




BTW I order my new quilting machine Saturday.  HQ Fusion 24 with a ten foot table.   Yippee!

Plugging along

Did you miss me? Our friends have been here from Scotland we are having a lovely time. They leave tomorrow.

I have managed a few things.

A quilty hugs quilt which is a collaboration of bigger blocks for the spare parts bag.


The back with a Halloween theme.


I committed to two QOV quilts for a November award.  There is a large group of military members receiving them.


The back.


A Quilty hug top that started with a stack of blue squares.


I am binding this in hopes that a friend will want to purchase it.

A Little Late

I meant to post these earlier in the week but life got in the way. These are the quilty hugs given on Monday and I had my second refusal, but he did not realize I had made what I was giving out. So maybe next time he will get lucky.  I let this one get away before a photo was taken.  It was extra special as a coworkers wife was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  Her label had her name on it. She absolutely loved it.

Bought a new kitty condo and assembled it. I also took down the old one and saved the jute spindles.
My friend JoAnn made me the cutest doll.

More Quilts almost ready

I have been steadily quilting away on my tops.  There seems to be no end as I keep making more.  More is better right?









This next top will need another border to make it big enough. All the blocks were already made, I just put it together.

A First

I experienced the first person to say that they DID NOT want a quilty hug quilt.  What?  I didn't see that one coming.  Well I recovered and gave my quilty hug quilts to patients who DID want them.

Here are the ones that left the nest.






K your quilt went to a tall man who was in check with getting a quilt with pink and purple.

Patchwork Pretty

I finished quilting this top last night.  I love this design so much that I will do another one soon.



My grand daughter and I made this carrot cake a few days ago.  It tastes better every day.
