I am still in the process of moving but there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel! I went from a 2800 sq ft house to a 1600 sq ft. Downsizing is not fun at all but being realistic. Most of our kids are college bound next year. We won't need that much room anymore and will be less to maintain as we age. When looking for a new home, I kept in mind the need for room for my Z44 frame if it was to ever be expanded to Cali King size. I have also been thinking of storage issues. Maybe a cube
I ordered a walking foot for my Singer Simple® yesterday. My model # wasn't listed but one of the reviews stated she uses it on hers. I have so much to learn about sewing/quilting on a machine. I love to create and if it makes it faster then..... All I can do is read, watch videos and try. I see all these beautiful quilts and patterns in aww. So many techniques, ruler/cutting methods... it tends to be a bit overwhelming. With that said, I will find one that jumps out at me and then research.

I am not ready to start this project as of yet, but wanted to do some more research on the "how to's". I have a huge fear that this idea is completely out there on

May seem small to others, but when it takes 15 mins to load a 1 min video, it gets very frustrating after a while! Being I am a visual learner, I use YouTube for my "how to's." We got faster internet installed yesterday, so now it just PLAYS when I click… YEAH!
With this being said, I have been looking at how to hand appliqué. I see various techniques so I am trying to determine which will work best for me. I see some use freezer paper, some use fusible web, some use
Thinking of doing the Hunter's Star using camos and hunter's orange. I have been researching patterns, etc. I am knew to Quilt Pro 5 so I have a lot to learn, but haven't seen that block in there as of yet. I may have to figure a way to draw it or what have you in the program. Are there any other patterns that might be recommended for my color scheme? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Also, if any has any pics of camo quilts, I would love to see, as well.
Things have been crazy busy for me as I'm sure the same holds true for all of you. I wanted to take the time to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a safe/happy New Year.
My goal after the chaos is over is to start working on my UFOs, determined to complete one before going to the next. If I had had this frame of thought from the start, I wouldn't have so many now. These projects range from a quilt, latch hook, crochet, plastic canvas. As I ponder on this, I am having visions

We are multifunctional people but have a need to be neat and tidy. This has become a problem. I'm not sure where to even begin to explain the situation. Problem: my husband and I do not like living in separate parts of the house. He is a Xbox360 gamer/computer geek and I am a crafter/quilter. Needless to say, we both need space but without the clutter. He currently has 2 large monitors and getting a third. For me, if I work on anything, it's drag it all out, work a few minutes, put it all

Does anyone want to do these menus & grocery list for me…. Just not feeling good at all today but this has to get done. Gotta get groceries tomorrow. Will be nonstop for the entire month of Dec. Yep, I'm stressing already and haven't even started. As organized as I try to stay, it doesn't help much. I am known as the walking calendar. If it's not on my to do list or my calendar, it doesn't exist. I think the list is a mile long and the calendar is jam packed EVERY day.
I hope everyone has had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I seemed to have had one kitchen mishap after another (so unlike me). I even had a pie coming fresh out of the oven on the way to the cooling racks go SPLAT. This was after I had gotten the filling all in my hair and on my clothes as I was mixing it. All I could do was laugh it off and make another one. Then I spilt raisins EVERYWHERE! To end the night, I spilt hot candied yams/ the juice all in my refrigerator and on me. For someone who loves
I'm sure I'm not the only one that has the thought every year, "I'm going to be on top of things next year. I will make gifts throughout the year." The holiday season has popped up out of no where. I don't have the first gift made.
I have been pondering the thought of using some of my scrap muslin to make some cathedral window Christmas ornaments. The only thing is, I would prefer white and my current stash is cream colored. I figure being that I am working on a quilt
