I am really struggling with a severe case of bronchitis/ on the verge of pneumonia from what I have been told. Dont have alot of energy, can't take deep breaths, which for me, I need due to having severe asthma myself. I am feeling a bit discouraged, and uninspired to even smile at the moment. Just weary in body, spirit and mind.

    very weary. Usually ...
  2. Here We Go!

My mother continued to make quilt tops and finish them on her own at home. When I was about 12 or 13 years, I learned how to use the old Singer Sewing Machine and from there learned how to piece and sew just about anything.
    It was about the same time, I learned to crochet. I LOVED to crochet and kinda
  3. Help with "Richmond" treadle sewing machine.

    by , 01-15-2012 at 10:00 AM
    I have a treadle style sewing machine that was once my great grandmothers. It is labeled "Richmond" and I have some old, very worn paperwork with it. I have the warranty paper stating it was sold at Bloomingdale's and the Sewing Machine No. 148324. I'm looking for info on this. What company made this? What is the age? Etc.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Brett.

    I don't know how they start them either. I have just blogged on someone else's post. There are a few things I don't understand on here yet.

Got a long ways to go, but the backing I ordered for it came in the mail today (using the blue star fabric in the line), so that will keep me motivated to keep sewing!

    The pattern was in a Quilt trend magazine. unfortunately I don't which issue. but I will try to find out for you. It is a Debbie Beaves pattern the magazine featured it made with the simple pleasures fabric line ( RJR fabric). I know their web site has a lot of free downloadable patterns from designers but I'm not sure if this one is still there.

I also made a little quilt for her doggie and I will try to find that picture and post it.

  10. Orca Bay Mystery

    by , 01-14-2012 at 03:41 PM (Scrapin' Southern Style)
    I got a late start on the Orca Bay Mystery quilt, but have thoroughly enjoyed it. I am currently working on the red strip piecing blocks. I did all the hourglass units, blue strip pieced blocks and the orca units. I don't love making the strip pieces, but I do like the effect. I cut out the black and neutral squares to make the Ohio star units.

    I estimate I am more than halfway done with the quilt. I was very gratified to see the finished quilt on New Year's Day. I have to say it ...
