The gathering ........!

Of three (3) ladies, (Cherie Heitke of Flying Goose Quilt Shop, Cyndy Oliver of 3 Bears Inn and myself), who thought they were destined to dine alone tonight!


We ate at the Original Ninfa restaurant.  Gosh was it good!  The best Mexican I have every had so far.  Well worth the trip.

Cheers!

A chat with Jan Patek ....

What a wonderful time to connect with one of my favourite appliqué designer.


Debbie from Woolen Sails, were your ears ringing? Jan says hello! ;)

A first for me .....!

Have you purchased your latest issue (winter 2013) of Primitive Quilts and Projects?


Goodness, lots of wonderful projects in that edition.  For one thing Nancy's quilt from Tom Miner Blog is on the cover.

And for another ......  Snowy Gatherings by Lisa Bongean, which ......


Yep, I've completed the wool table topper.  It's a first for me!  When I saw that pattern, I just had to get to it right away.

Love how it turned out! Of course I do have a soft spot for snowpeople!

Hope you are all enjoy the wonderful fall weather!  Here in the way Northeast it continues to be delightful!

Thanks for stopping by!  Cheers!

My "Girls" were on the local news last night .....!

Hum.... my "Girls" being my chickens! lol


Seems the Village wants to change the law to only allow dogs and cats as "legal" pets.  I do not agree with how they are choosing to define "pets".

Life, the universe and English Paper Piecing ....!

How is the weather in your neck of the woods?  Here in way up North - I can see Canada from my house - New York state, it has been a gorgeous fall.  The past couple of weeks have been lovely enough to be sitting outside enjoying some sun rays!  A little nippy today for that, but a good day to be in my sewing studio!  I love fall!

I continue to be a busy quilter.  I have finally put the last stitch in my half inch hexagon quilt!  Voila!


Love how it turned out.  So much so that I am starting another half inch hexe quilt, queen size! I am changing the pattern to this.


I still haven't figured out how to design a hexagon block on EQ 7.  I guess I have another challenge ahead of me.  I cannot imagine that I'll have to colour each hexagons!  lol

In an attempt to clean/tidy my new sewing studio, I've been doing a bit of organizing/preparing for that queen size half inch hexe quilt!  Have you noticed how scraps tend to multiply?


I've been at this for the past three (3) nights and I can barely see the light at the end of the tunnel. lol  I best get going and finish the task so that I can use my cutting table again!

Thank you for stopping by!  Cheers!
