  1. Sunday Thoughts

    by , 11-06-2011 at 08:47 PM (Everyone Deserves a Quilt)
    The past two weeks have been very hectic! The Bras for a Cause/Girls' Night Out took a lot of time and energy but since the event was Wednesday (and it was wonderful), things are slowing down a bit. I have just a couple of things to finish up for that (thank you notes, final delivery of some silent auction items, etc.) and then I hope to get back to quilting.

  3. Choosing a Quilt Binding

    by , 11-06-2011 at 04:49 PM
    Choosing a quilt binding for your baby quilt should be done once the quilt is assembled. It is difficult to make a decision on what type of fabric should be used for the binding and how it will look on the quilt.

    Place your finished quilt top on either your design wall or lay it out on a bed or clean floor space. Now, you will be able to place potential binding fabrics alongside of the quilt top. Step back. Exchange fabrics and repeat.

    I have never done a blog before! Have never kept a diary either, on a consistent basis -- we'll see what happens here.

    We live in Trego WI, on a 'flowage' of the Namekagon River, in the woods. ("We" = me and my husband of 38+ years, Tom.)

    In WI, a flowage is created by damming a river to create a lake. But, this is still a river, so the water is always moving. This means that we have very few mosquitos, even in the depth of summer.

  8. Earthquake and stuff

    Our house shook last night at 10:55pm. It was quite a surprise and my little Italian Greyhound totally freaked.
    Don got home from his five day whirlwind trip to Phoenix and back about 11:30am today. He is pretty tuckered out.
    The last of the feral kitten has been neutered and now the whole colony is non-producing. They are so pretty in their winter coats. They have had very healthy appetites; hope that is not a sign of a bad winter to match our bad summer.
