UFOs in the closet....!

Back in February 2007, I had become a member of the Stashbuster yahoo group. That year, I decided to join their UFO challenge. It was a perfect opportunity for me to finish some long over due projects.

I began this challenge by doing an inventory, well okay, cleaning out the dust bunnies so to speak! Once I had an inventory of all of my on going projects, I decided that it was time to keep a list.

This is what I came up with.

I remember Nancy, from Nancyquilts, commenting on how I was just a baby in the UFO department! She had 86 UFOs! Not sure my heart could take it! lol I wonder how Nancy is doing!?

As you can see, many of those projects have been completed.

What I have done, is continued a yearly listing of each project I start. This allows me to know the year and date I began and finished my projects.

Now I'm curious, how you organize your ongoing projects? Do you keep a list of your projects?

All this to say, my guild Franklin County Quilter's Guild, is doing a UFO challenge! I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for me to work on the "prior to 2007" list.

Sunday, I dug for a project to add to the new challenge list and decided on Wildberry Vines by Nancy Odom of Timid Thimble Creations. This project was on the original 2007 Stashbuster UFO challenge and did cost me a penalty of a FQ! Should you wish, you may read the story associated with this quilt here.

Harmed with determination, by 2:00 a.m. I had pieced the center of the quilt! Yea!

There really wasn't much left to do on it. Trimming the blocks and doing a bit of hand embroidery in (2) two of the blocks.

For now, I must leave it on my design wall, as I do need to get my Jo's Little women' club project done for Thursday! I've got to set a good example! ;o) lol

Off to play with some Jo Morton Fabrics! Pressure, pressure, but I can handle it! ;o)

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Hocus Pocus .... Happy Halloween....!

I have continued to be a stitchen' fool! I'm telling you, those 2 (two) little thimbles are a dream. My fingers are nice and soft!

If you recall, I had set a goal to finish the Hocuspocusville quilt by October 31 of this year! I wasn't sure I would make it! It was a bit tight, but I made it with moments to spare.

Block 6

Last but not least, block 11

I always keep the easiest block for last. It's probably psychological, but it's a great motivator!

I wish you all a safe and spooky Hallows Eve! Thank you for stopping by!

Stitchen' away....!

Indeed, I've been a stitching fool! My goal was to have samples done to decorate the Shoppe for fall. Mission accomplished!

I've fallen in love with Stacy West's designs - Buttermilk Basin. She has such a sweet collection of primitive stitching designs.

Ready? Oh, the centers are much darken than shown in the photograph. Gotta have that prim look!

Voici Moon, Cat & Jack

Owl, Jack & Bat! Available at Fibre Junction

Three Stacked Pumpkins!

Last but note least - Halloween Blackwork!

Told you so!!! LOL

Thanks for stopping by! I still have lots to show you on the stitching frenzy front!

Guess What.....?

That cross hatching quilt is still not done! So much for wanting to finish it that day! It really is a lot harder than I thought! The hatching is all done, it's just the baskets that I have no clue what to do in them. The inspiration will come!

You know, machine quilting inspiration and/or determining the quilting designs is what I find the hardest. I just do not spend enough time with Penelope to have it come to me naturally. Sigh...!

On the quilting front, I've been a busy bee!

I recently finished this little gem!

BOO! I love Halloween!

This is a pattern is called Smiling Spooky by Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin! Her patterns are just so adorable! Love her primitive style!

I used reproduction fabrics with Jan Patek's Blessing line. I love that poison green!

I have another one to show you! But first, I must machine quilt it!

Thanks for stopping by! Off to do a bit of quilting!

When was the last time you thanked the moon?

I've always loved the moon. Of course, I was just a kid when mankind visited this celestial sphere, but I remember! I watched it at our neighbour's house. They were the first people on the block to get a colour television. Okay, so I'm dating myself! ;o) Ironically, the event was in black in white! lol

I've been watching a documentary on the History Channel via Netflix called The Universe. That's how I get a lot of hand work done. There's nothing like getting an education while working on some hand projects. I'm the queen of multi-tasking, but I'm digressing..... ;o)

Anyway, come to find out that had it not been for our moon, this earth would be in a big mess! I learned so much about the positive benefits of the moon's gravitational pull and I'm not just talking about tides here! ;o) Next time you look up to the heavens, be thankful! This planet we call earth and it's surroundings is truly amazing!

On the quilting front, I've been scheduling play dates with Penelope.

This weeks lesson, cross hatching!

It's a lot harder than it looks! It's challenging to say the least!

I'm positive I have some warpies going on here! But, I won't show you where they are! lol

I've had this little reproduction quilt top done for a while, waiting to schedule some time to quilt it! I'm hoping to have it finished today so that I can show it to you as a finish!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the day! Cheers!

Another finish.....!

Some of you have been asking about the renovations. There are coming along nicely. We are moved back into the living room. What remains is the dinning room.

As I've mentioned in a prior post, I'm just pleased that the hot water heating system is up and running. Let me explain!

Have I ever mentioned how Stephen and plumbing do not mix? As talented as Stephen is in many fields, plumbing just doesn't work for him. Oh, he can do it, it's just that .... well ..... we all pay for it before, during and after. The last time he touched plumbing, I firmly informed him that he had 2 (two) choices, either we hire a plumber or a lawyer! lol

Thankfully I do not need to hire either, as my favourite brother, has he likes to be known, graciously offers to do any plumbing that needs to get done in the house. Now you know why I am so pleased that we have heat! lol

Hubby has been busy taking care of the finishing trim, and there is lots of it!

We have crown molding in both the dinning room and living room! The lower part of the walls will have wainscoating!

On the quilting front....

I finished Rural Jardin, a Moda pattern by French General. It's another free pattern and you can access it here.

I used both Rouinerie and Rural Jardin fabric line by French General. Both lines are available at Fibre Junction.

I used the Plumage panto on this quilt and I really like how it turned out!

I love a scallop border, I don't know why I do not make more quilts with scallops! It is a pain to mark, ruler or not, but so worth it once it's completed!

I use the Large Scallop Radial Rule from Katie Lane Quilts to mark my scallops. The ruler does make it easier.

Thanks for stopping by! Keep well!

The beauty of it all......!

It is hard to believe that fall is quickly approaching! The leaves on some of the trees have already started to turn their magnificent colours.

Here last week we had the most amazing sight!

The picture does not do it justice! The colours were so vibrant!
I hadn't seen a double rainbow since I don't know when! I cannot say, "since I was a kid" because, well I don't think I've grown up yet. lol

Adulthood is so over rated, who needs it! ;o)

I love nature!

Speaking of nature, our vegetable garden has been quite productive this year.

Last year, the tomato blite claimed most of our potential harvest. Thankfully this year it has not been the case. There is nothing like a fresh home grown tomato! Beats store bought anytime!

Hubby has been busy drying, as our supply of garden fresh sun dried tomatos has been exhausted.

On the quilting front, you will be astonished at the amount of quilting I have been doing! It's always a great feeling when you have completed a project!

Tah dah!

Machine quilted and all! Yes, I've been enjoying play dates with Penelope!

The pattern is called Park Avenue by 3 Sisters. It's a free pattern on the Moda site under the Fun Stuff heading. You can access the pattern here.

There's something to be said for a quilt that does not have borders. It's probably psychological, but it feels like a quick finish! ;o)

It will make a nice sample for the shoppe!

Thanks for stopping by! Keep well!

Friendship and stitchn' away ....!

A few weeks ago I had the wonderful privilege of meeting a blogging friend.

We had planned a trip visit to my in-laws in Massachusetts. As you all know by now, they live close to one of my favourite quilt shops. What a perk!

Anyhow, that Saturday, The Quilted Crow was hosting their monthly Breakfast Club. I thought perhaps Linda, from A Simple Life, would like to join me, and she did. What a wonderful time we had! So much so that we went to a coffee shop to continue our visit! I so enjoyed her company!

A couple of weeks ago I received this lovely note from Linda.

I am so glad that we had a change to meet in person.

Wow! Now I have two perks for when I visit my in-laws! lol

Thank you again Linda for your company!

On the renovation front, we've moved back into our living-room! Yea! Oh and the heat is functional again. You just never know in the north! lol

Now, I did mention in my prior blog entry that I have been stitchn' away! ;o) Well, get a load of this!

Voila! Block 7 (seven) of Hocuspocusville!

Have I shown you block 8(eight) yet?

I'm telling you those 2 (two) little thimbles are marvelous! I can go on for days on end! It's great!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to do some more hand embroidery! You never know, I may have that quilt done by Halloween!


Sunday, August 22, 2010

I've been a stitchin' fool.....

Last week was one of those weeks where solutions to problems just seemed to come. You see, I've been bothered by the fact that I was limited on the time I could spend hand embroidering.

For some reason, when it comes to hand embroidering, I find using a normal thimble cumbersome. So, the finger I use to push the needle would develop a small surface hole that's quite tender and the middle finger underneath my work would get scraped by the point of the needle, thus becoming sore.

You would think after years of hand embroidering I would get callouses rendering this a none issue, but that is not the case.

It was time for a solution!

It dawned on me that we had these little Thimble Pads at the Fibre Junction. So, I gave them a try!

They work beautifully! They are not cumbersome and thus allow me to push my embroidery needle through.

I was impressed!

They last too! The adhesive works for a long period of time. I've been using one for the past 4 (four) days and it still sticks to my finger. As for the colour, well it sort of has picked up the colour of my thread - black!

Of course this didn't help the left hand issue, the one that's underneath my work. Sure I can alternate between fingers, but after a while they all get sore.

Ding, a light bulb came on!

Why don't I try the Under Thimble by the same company?

Picked that up at the Shoppe too!

It was my week off, but you wouldn't know it by the number of times I found myself at Fibre Junction! lol

Well, stuck one of these metal spheres on the other middle finger and gave it a try.

Took me a few minutes to get used too, but it's working great.

The needle scrapes the surface of the metal as opposed to my finger.

No more sore fingers!

Look out, I'm armed!

With these little thimbles on, I can stitch for days on end!

What a relief!

Now, try getting a 13 year old to take this picture? Yea, she wouldn't stop laughing! "Mommy..." lol

Of course I feel kind of funny myself when I show off my middle fingers with the thimbles on! LOL! Kids?!?!

I haven't tried the Under Thimble with hand applique yet, but I sure will give it a try. I'm hoping I can extend the time I spend hand appliqueing! When you're on a roll, it's nice to be able to keep the pace!

Tell me, do you get sore fingers when you work on your hand embroidery? Do you use a thimble? I'd love for you to share your method/tools!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Despite the crazy busyness going on in my life, I am still somewhat accomplishing stuff.

The renovations are going according to schedule. Hubby has been hard at work getting the molding up and is now applying polyurethane to the livingroom floor. Once that has harden, we can actually start moving in! Onward to the dining room!

On the quilting front,

I have Hocuspocusville block 10 done.

The quilt is slowly getting done! I haven't had much time to do some hand work as of late.

I've been in a piecing mode! I will have lots to show you in a bit! I hope! lol

I was really hoping to have this quilt done by this Halloween, but..... not sure I will be able to meet my goal. Oh well, there's always next year!

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

Firstly, thank you to all that participated in my "one of these things" game. I do want to apologize again for taking so long in posting the winner, but you all know what's going on in my life from the last post. Oh, and it's really only the tip of the iceberg! lol

Second, I would like for you to meet a new family member

Thank you again everyone! Enjoy the day! Cheers!

Excuses, excuses.... ?

I do have good reasons to be away from blog land. July has been busy with lots of activities, one of which is renovations.

This year, we are doing both the dinning room and the living room.

It's messy and time consuming but oh so rewarding when completed.

I'm so glad that wall paper is gone! Oh, and that fire place mantel too! I think it was added much later. It really does not represent the time period of our home.

Once we took the plaster off the walls, we were able to determine if my plan to have an exposed brick wall on your right (the same wall as the built in cabinet) was feasible. Sadly, it wasn't. The wall was too damaged to be exposed.

But, the fire place looks great!

Comes complete with spider web for that added decorating touch! lol

I'm all set for Halloween! lol

Stephen will be making a mantel for it.

The only brick exposed will be that of the fireplace chimney.

So, there you have it, my excuse for being away from blog land. I'll spare you the living room for now! ;o)

As for the draw, I have all the names printed out and I will post the winner this weekend.

We now have Internet at the Shoppe, so I'm hopping to be more productive in my personal life. I do enjoy blog land and reading from my list of amazing blog friends, but work always seemed to take priority. Now with the Internet at the Shoppe, things will change and I should be back on track! ;o)

Off to do a bit of catching up! Thank you for your patience!

One of these blocks is not like the other....!

Yesterday, Stephen reminded me that I had not blogged in quite some time. How can that be? Time really is relative! Thank you Einstein!

In the meantime, I've been plugging away at various projects; so I have nothing completed to show you at the present moment. Since I like to play games, I thought we could play one together.

Those of you young enough to remember Sesame Street may be familiar with Cookie Monster's game "One of these things is not like the other." I love Sesame Street. It wasn't around in my early youth, but since I haven't grown up yet... of course I'm familiar with the show! lol

Let's start!

Remember Coney Island, well there's a humility block in there. I didn't notice it until I was almost done with the machine quilting. And, I only noticed it because my quilting movement did not feel like the others. ;o)

If you leave a comment telling me which block is not like the others, I'll put your name in a draw for a prize.

I haven't decided the prize yet, but I will pick something nice. Hum....

Oh.... this is going to be fun!

Deadline for the draw is July 1, 2010. Good luck!

Thanks for playing with me. Have yourself a great week! Cheers!

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

A finish.....!

At last, it is done.

Voici Coney Island by Fig Tree & Company!

I love how that quilt turned out! It's hard to believe that the top had been sitting, or would that be hanging, in a closet for so long.

It's such a great feeling when a quilt has been completed. For me, complete means the binding has been sewn.

No, it doesn't have a label, yet! I keep a yearly record of the starting and finishing date of my projects on a Word document. I began this system when I joined Stashbusters in 2007. I needed to know how many UFOs I had. It's amazing how much I get done in a year! Really!?!?

So, when I get in the mood, that's when I'll stitch a few labels on my embroidery machine. The mood just hasn't come on yet! lol

For those of you who, like me, wants to see the machine quilting up close....

I didn't do anything complicated. I used the square points on the cones as a guideline for my loops!

I was going to do feathers on the sashing but...... I didn't like how they were turning out. So I croaked!

I just wasn't able to figure out how I would connect the feathers between rows. Given that each block is done in the ditch, leaving the sashing area blank just wasn't an issue for me.

Simple is good! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

New Project .....!

Thank you friends on blog land for your lovely comments regarding the newspaper article on Fibre Junction. It has been quite the year, an extremely busy one, yet quite rewarding.

Lots has been going on, I finished machine quilting Coney Island, a pattern by Fig Tree & Company. However, I cannot show it to you until I have sewn the binding on it. That's my motivation to get it done so I can show it to you! I'm anxious to call this one finis!

On the quilting front, I decided to start a new project! Well, I did almost complete one! ;o)

The quilt pattern is called Trick or Treat by Blackbird Designs. It's from their book When the Cold Wind Blows.

These are just a few that I've completed. There are 291 baskets in the quilt. So far I have completed 37 machine appliqued baskets with lots cut out. Just a few more to go! ;o)

I fell in love with this quilt and just had to make it. To quote Alma "Anytime someone tells me to cut 300 of anything, it takes my breath away ... but one look at Barb's quilt and I had to say. 'Let me get my scissors!'" My sentiments exact!

The block are machine appliqued! So, as I prepare the blocks I read a book! ;o)

Yes, it has dawned on me that I do not need to physically sit and read a book. I can have it read to me. What a relief that is! lol I love to read so now I get to do two (2) things I enjoy, read and quilt, at the same time! ;o)

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!

Can I Brag....?!

I am so excited to share with you that Fibre Junction - A quilt Shoppe is in the news! Suzanne Moore of the Press Republican did an article on the shoppe.

What a great feeling! You can read Suzanne's article here.

Thank you Suzanne for writing about the Shoppe!

If you would like to take a virtual tour of Fibre Junction, you may do so here.
Thank you for allowing me to brag a bit! ;o)

The beauty of it all......!

Today is a SNOW DAY! ;o)

You can always expect a snow storm in April. It's just a question of when!

Thankfully, the beauty does not hang around for too long. It is spring you know!

What a perfect day for a latte and some quilting! I'm working on a project that I hope to share with you soon.

On the project completion front, I finished Tic-Tac Baskets, a pattern by Jan Patek Quilts.

I used Jan Patek's fabric line Blessings from Moda. I love Moda! ;o)

The quilt is machine pieced and appliqued!

As much as I enjoy needleturn appliqué, I also find the preparation for machine appliqué quite relaxing.

I use that prep time to listen to audiobooks. Not something I can easily do when I'm using my sewing machine.

Penelope and I had some bonding time. I played with rulers and free-form on the Tic-Tac Basket quilt.

Gosh, I'm loving ruler work! ;o) My, in the ditch work, has improved quite nicely!

What's on Penelope at the moment you might ask? Well, my Coney Island quilt! Yes, I feel comfortable enough to tackle that one! I can not wait to share the finish quilt with you!

Have a great week! Thank you so much for stopping by! Cheers!

Sunday, April 18, 2010

And the winner is....!

I do hope you have all had a wonderful week. Here, it's been mud/spring weather for the week. It's okay, water is good! Besides, it wouldn't be the North Country if it wasn't for mud season!

For this event, I took my trusty cauldron out of the pantry.

Hum... I see that it's been a while since it's been used. Either that, or I need to dust more often! lol

Well, given that I'm allergic to house work, I will have to have more give away! lol

As you see, the cauldron is filled with the comments from you wonderful people on Blog Land!

Good Luck!

Next, I went for my old book of Spells, Potions and Creepy Concoctions!

Blew the dust off that one too! Gosh, has it been that long?

I did cast my usually spells over the cauldron just to make sure there wasn't any funny stuff going around. lol

I like for things to be fair! ;o)

Once the cauldron was out, Thing came running to my sewing studio! She's always up for a good spell! ;o)

No, it's not from Dr. Seuss, Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Did anyone watch The Addams Family series? The earlier Muster series was pretty funny too! Of course, that was when television had quality programming! LOL

Okay, now I'm sure you are all pretty anxious to see who Thing picked as the winner!

Alright, here we go!

The winner is.... Anonymous Nancy E.!


Would anonymous Nancy E please contact me!

Thanks everyone who participated in this give away!

Spin, spin and more spinning ...!

How did the week go by so quickly? Sigh! Oh well. I've been quilting away and actually have pictures of a finished project to show you.

I've been working on this little quilt, more like a table topper.

The pattern is called A Little Twist by This & That, designed by Sherri K. Falls.

I had a fun time putting it all together!

I used fabrics from Moda, Simple Abundance designed by Bonnie & Camille . Ya know, that picture does not do justice to the orange. It's much prettier than in the photo.

Now that this little quilt is done, I'll be looking into making some Schnibbles patterns by Miss Rosie's Quilt & Co. I've seen them on Darlene's blog and they are enticing!

Yea, that's all I need, another project! lol

What the heck! Quilting is suppose to be fun and fun I'm having.

Don't forget, today is the last day to leave a comment for the give away. Good luck to all that commented.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of cyberspace! Keep well! Cheers!

Time for a give away....!

I've been a busy bee, working on some of those projects bins I blogged about a few weeks ago. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it feels to complete a project. It's the perfect motivation! I mean, I feel full of energy and pep, ready to tackle the next bin. Maybe even start a new project! ;o)

On the finish front, I have been working on The Circuit Rider's Quilt - An Album Honoring a Beloved Minister by Jenifer Dick. It's a needleturn applique class I'm teaching at the Shoppe.

The block is called Album Leaf. There are a couple of variations that I'm presently working on.

I decided to use some of my scraps from the Women of Influence quilt.

I'm not a scrap collector and therefore am always looking to use any left overs as soon as I can.

I really admire people who are able to work with scraps. Unless I can use them within a reasonable time frame in another project, I give them away to a good cause.

This is the Cornerstone Flower.

The leafs and center bulb are fabrics from the newest Judy Rothermel collection, The Civil War Tribute, from Marcus Bros. What a sweet line of fabrics they are. I do plan on incorporating more of that line in future blocks. For the circles, I did use scraps.

I realize that I have not been as diligent about blogging and I do want to apologize. So to make up for my lack, it's time for a give away.

Remember that quilt I finished a while back? You can view it here.

The pattern was called Stars Aligned by Cozy Quilt Designs.

Well, I have a kit prepared for you. The size of the quilt is 53" x 68" (Throw size).

All of the fabrics, except inner border and corner stones, come from the Moda line; Glace by Three Sisters.

The blueish fabric that you see is called Grunge Blue, also a Moda designed by Basic Grey.

There you have, the prize to be given away.

So, leave a comment on this blog entry and you will be entered in the give away.

The dead line is April 10, 2010. Good luck!

Thank you for stopping by and for your patience with my lack of posting. Cheers!

All gone ....!

Well, we did finally get some snow but alas it is gone. Today, I am enjoying a beautiful spring day! I love spring!

Recently, I've sat myself down and had a talk with my self. I said,

"self, you need to get organized. You seem overwhelmed, frozen on the spot, not knowing which pile you should tackle first. You're like a candle in the wind, blowing at which ever direction the wind sends you."

That, is so not me!

After my little talk, I decided that it was time I finish some way over due projects. You see, I bought myself some nifty little stackable bins. They even have a carry handle. The problem you might ask?

It wouldn't be so bad if this was the only stack of projects I've got going on.....

But I have two (2) more piles, and they don't all have just have one (1) projects inside!!!

It's almost gotten to the point of addiction. I mean, should I be starting out the post with, "hello, my name is Carole and I have an addiction to anything related to quilting......"

This is my most recent one! It's a huge bin, I rationalized purchasing it with the idea that I would keep my thread collection in it once emptied.

Have I mentioned another addiction of mine, thread, but I digress...

Anyway, the bin contains a new hand appliqué project, The Circuit Rider Quilt.

It's actually for a hand applique class I started to teach at the Shoppe last week!

I knew that buying more Art bins was not a viable solution, so I decided that I had to finish a project and empty a bin.

So, this is what I chose

The quilt pattern is Stars Aligned by Cozy Strip Club. It's a queen size quilt!

I've just recently finished hand sewing the binding. I used Matilda's own wool batting with silk. My friend Cheryl from Oz sent it to me. What a sweet batting it is.

I do love Matilda's own and, I have found a supplier for the Shoppe. Wool is so nice for those cold winter nights! According to my friend Cheryl, Aussie wool is the best! ;o) I have to say that so far, it's the one I like the most! At least, I haven't had any surprises like I did with Hobbs!

What a relief it was to have finally finished something from one of those bins. Of course, no sooner was the bin empty, it was refilled again with yet another project that "needs" to get done for someone! Sigh!

Note to self, "self, no longer accept commissions to make quilts!"

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day! Cheers!

Well, still no snow in our neck of the woods! We've had very little snow this winter, it's frightening!

Gosh, I'm in the mood for a good snow fall. You know, the kind every State that's not suppose to have so much snow is having! It would be nice if they shared! ;o)

I WANNA be able to fill my pool in May! Come on, share the snow! lol ;o)

On the quilting front, I've been plugging away at the Hocuspocusville quilt by Crabapple Hill Studio.

Block 3 - Bubble & Brew Coffee shop!

I just love the fly through! ;o)

I lost count of how many blocks I have left to do.

I'd like to finish that quilt before Halloween of 2010. I love Halloween!

I'll just keep plugging away!

Summer Rose block from the Baltimore Country Cousin is done.

Hummm...... I do see something I want to fix on it! Strange how I didn't see it before the picture was taken. Oh well!

I have 2 blocks left to do in order to complete the quilt. It will be nice to have all the blocks finished. It's actually one of my first large hand applique projects!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
