Random Tuesday


After a busy and productive weekend, I must confess to feeling a bit run down. Here are a couple of things going on, and some other random thoughts…

Must have t-shirt


Yes, I ordered it! This company has some fun shirts, and have a quite a few for sewists and quilters, amongst others. It is a family owned business – he, a designer and she, a quilter. They were also available in a V-neck which I prefer!


Saturday sewing with my daughter-in-law Heather. She had purchased some wonderful movie monster fabric about three years ago when we were on Bainbridge Island at Esther’s Fabrics. She purchased it with the intent of making pillows. She did a great job!! She had not sewn in a long time on the machine her mom gave her in High School. We got it cleaned, oiled and adjusted and off she went. She just needed a bit of guidance, and even said that she thought it was relaxing. I am sure it had nothing to do with this:


I finished piecing a quilt top for my Grand daughter who will be born in March. Now onto the applique and finishing. *Note- I will post the quilt after she is born, as I want her Mom to be surprised!

Luanne and I are slowly plugging away at our Splendid Sampler blocks, but are in in no hurry to get them done. Yesterday the 100th Block was revealed. I think I am at 15 and Luanne at 7 or 8… No rush!

My scrap bin overfloweth!! 20160504_113819.jpg

When that happens I do try to weed out some of the larger pieces. I put them through the Accuquilt Go,  using the apple core die. At some time, I will have a very scrappy Apple Core Quilt.


Tomorrow is another Ties that Bind Quilt Guild Meeting. Looking forward to it for sure.

And I do have to spend a little time gathering supplies for a class at Wisconsin Quilt Museum. I am taking a Zen Doodle Quilting Class. Love Zentangle Designs, so it will be nice to combine that with my quilting. Never hurts to learn some new techniques!

Must carry on! And Happy Valentines Day!!
