  1. Holy Smokes Has it REALLY been that long

    by , 01-27-2012 at 08:55 PM
    Well after having many things take place, and finding this lovely site I could not believe it has been so long since I was here. My Passions are running full time and I am quilting a full size quilt that I had received for my birthday from co-workers. The quilting is just what it was missing as soon as it is done I will place some pics on here. Tis time for me to get to bed gotta work real early in the morning.

    I've been crafty all of my life and lead a prayer shawl ministry at my church where we mostly knit and crochet. A lady came to my office at work (the church) and asked if we were ever be interested in fabric for quilting or making blankets. I said of COURSE! She said she was moving and selling off all of the

    These designs are ALL PP. No applique involved.
    Accuracy, precision, points as sharp as daggers and peicing that simply can not be done any other way are all reasons to "specifically" PP.

  5. Operation: Use More Flannel

    by , 01-27-2012 at 12:44 PM (A Fabric Obsession)
    So far I am making a decent dent in my flannel supply. I have loaded up on it the past 2 Black Fridays at JoAnn's and the shelf I keep it on has very little room. I made a Curious George blanket for my son, a baby top, and last night I started another baby top. I have again this year decided to track how much fabric I buy and use. Last year I ended negative, meaning I used more than I bought. Here are a few pics of the latest projects.

  6. Suggestions for a Quilting Machine

    by , 01-27-2012 at 12:39 PM
    I am interested in buying a sewing machine, for both sewing and quilting. I'm not a beginner, but my memory has been affected by chemotherapy so, I should get one that has ease of use as a feature, just in case. I will have to keep on learning how to use it, because my short term memory is that bad.

    I'm expecting to pay about $600. If it makes a big difference, I can spend up to $1000 at the utmost, obviously prefer to spend less. If I had my desire, it'd be a dressmaker, quilting, ...

I actually made up a couple more different wonky blocks to go with the sample blocks I made with my Christmas present - Accuquilt Studio! What fun that was --- I just couldn't resist including the

  8. Another Friday and another weekend for me.

    by , 01-27-2012 at 07:32 AM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I'm looking forward to this weekend. I haven't been doing much in the way of sewing this week. I did finish up a knitted piece that is ready for felting. I'm going to make it into a hot pad to give away to a family member. Last weekend I finally finished up four potholders I was making before Christmas. Those will also be given away at the family reunion. Tonight I will finally start cutting the fabric for my first lap quilt. This is the quilt I will give away at the family reunion this ...

    Hi everyone, I'm new in this blog. I got a comment on my fabric boards that my dh is selling.
    Does the blog have a for sale page for us to list things we are selling?
    I do have them listed on the main board section under sale items.
    Sorry if I listed in the wrong place.
  10. Bucket of Strips Continues

    by , 01-27-2012 at 05:29 AM
    The 9 1/2" squares are all cut out and I decided to pair them with black. I cut out 9 1/2" squares of black fabric and sewed a 1/4" seam all around. Nothing ever goes right.

    I ran out of black fabric and still have 12 squares of the strips.

    What to do? Just use the squares paired with the black?
    Send my son out to get more black since I'm carless today and also sick?

    I really just wanted to use up my stash, but with the extra trimmings ...
