Made these for my three daughters, 16, 18, and 22. The "BOYD" banner is my oldest daughter's new name as she was recently married. The Bright black one for my eighteen year old and the red/purple for my sixteen year old. The last one is actually Candace's work. She began this first quilt when she was 11 yrs and we never got it finished. I decided to finish it for her for Christmas as she wanted it done, but had lost interest in doing it herself. All of the blocks were finished and

I have never done paper piecing before! If learning from mistakes is the best way to learn, I should be able to teach a class by now.
I decided to do the block of the month. This was my first endeavor and I rather like how the block turned out. I will post a picture of it in the appropriate forum thread.
Just thinking out loud I guess today. Not a good day as in not in a good mood. I hate being down but some days are just like that. I guess I just feel blah and it isn't even winterish here yet. For a January day and it is 40 degrees I should be jumping for joy. We have had sunny days and not too cold for this time of the year. But today I am just let down. I feel like noone is talking to me and I am all alone. Not a pity party just feeling like nothing is right today.

2012 - A New Year, a time for reflection, a time to finish UFOs and take on new quilting challenges.

It wasn't until 2011 that I came to the realization that I am no longer a sewer, artist and crafter. I am a Quilter.

Here's my pics, just finished. I'm now remembering something about doing mystery quilts. If you saw the finished quilt top, you probably wouldn't make it ! I wouldn't want to cut all these little squares !!

I should've before now but I thought I'd get a job much easier. It is a good thing, I've just never been without my own car. ( Whine ) My husband has a truck, so that will have to do. I did get more than I owed on it, so that was good.
Other than that. Over the weekend I saw a couple ads on Craigslist.

Hello all! We are really looking and feeling like winter here in NW Wisconsin -- the temp went below zero this a.m., and we have about 5 in. of snow on the ground. The wind must have been swirling the snow around on our lake -- there are small drifts near our dock and some streaks on the lake ice where the snow was blown away. I don't remember seeing that before.
I found a new series of nice mysteries to read! I just read The Body in the Gazebo by Katherine Hall Page. It is a
