  1. A few of my quilts

    by , 11-07-2011 at 09:23 AM (Ladyquilter and aspiring knitnut)
    Good morning, folks. It is pouring down outside and we are greatful for the rain.
    I always forget to take pics of my quilts, so I really do have a couple to post. The panel is for my sis for Christmas. The valentine wall hanging is a pattern from Accuquilt. The first one is my representation of the OKC bombing. Map is backwards (as in half staff flag) and each of the yoyos represents a child killed.
    I really need to practice on getting the size down properly.
    I hope

  5. Sad Monday

    by , 11-07-2011 at 08:24 AM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I received word yesterday that my ex-MIL passed away. She passed away on my daughter's birthday which is really sad. DD is okay with it. She was with her Grandmother at the end and so glad she got the chance to nurse her and spend quality time with her the last two weeks. DD had her for 35 years so she has lots of great memories.

    I played in my sewing room yesterday morning trying to banish the sadness after hearing about the deal of ex-MIL. I did some sewing and was able to ...

  8. Selvage or Funky Chicken Pincushion

Her original pattern was for 3” log cabin blocks with 1/2” logs, very small felt beak and comb and a seed bead for the eyes. Cute, but not nearly the pizazz I like
