This quilt was basted last week along with several others. I'm in "finishing" mode, and it happens to me every few months. I get the urge to finish all the things I'm working on so I can take on something new! It's a fun cycle, like life! Over the weekend, I found time to put … Continue reading Patriotic Quilting
This quilt top, and two others are finally basted and quilted! They lack binding, but that's an easy step for me. I always get stuck at the basting phase! What about you? Do you have a quilting step that you would prefer to skip? How do you do that step?

Here's what happening in our neck of the woods! Victoria magazine sent me two lovely mags to read this week. I'm still … Continue reading Random Happenings
I fell down the style rabbit hole recently. I found out about a style system called the Kibbe system, named for the founder, David Kibbe. (Now, he has a book that was written in the 80's, but it's at an outrageous price right now. So there that!) I'm still really just learning about this style … Continue reading Wardrobe Work
I have to admit to not sewing much lately. When I do have the opportunity to sew, I am often working on things related to my Etsy shop. However, the Sarah Fielke Block of the Month from last year entitled Simple Folk has been in my UFO pile for way too long. As I find … Continue reading Applique Final Sprint
As Mr. Wonderful and I look at changing our diet for the better, this one phrase keeps coming up. I know that the Lord doesn't bring anything into focus and repeat it to us for no good reason, so I'm listening to this recurring theme!
