Summer Round-Up

 Summer is almost over and I am ready for the temperature drop!  We have been playing golf in 100+ degrees most of the summer.  Tuesday, several of us golfers went to a neighboring golf course outside Walla Walla called "Wine Valley".  The temperature was about 75, no wind, and no smoke!  Absolutely beautiful.

A friend of mine from high school commissioned me to make seven quilts for Christmas presents.  I am working on #5.

This morning, I finished a fall table topper, which will go to a friend!

Nothing much going on, sew will catch you later!

Comments will be screened!

Sorry, but due to some bad apples, I am going to limit comments to my blog.  Thanks for your understanding!


Several Finishes!

The Covid-19 virus has screwed up my part-time job at Joann's.  They finally had to close the store to customers, and have curbside service only.  I have been off for the past two weeks, but have been able to get some quilts finished!  Most of these have yet to be quilted but "Winter Stars" has been quilted and shipped off to my Step-Son in Ohio!  It started out as a table topper but Scott asked me to make him a queen-sized quilt.  It turned out pretty scrappy but the main fabric was "Urban Farmhouse".

The "Dutchman's Puzzle" has also been finished and shipped off to my customer.  She should have received it last Wednesday, but I haven't heard from her to see if she is happy.

 "Endless Possibilities" has also been shipped off to my good friend, who is giving it for a birthday gift.  I have made this quilt twice, but still don't have one for me!  My sister has one is blues.

I think that you are caught up for now!

I stopped by cousin Roxanne’s Wednesday to drop off some towels that I had made for her. While visiting, I noticed a quilt that I had made for Aunt Reeta folded and sitting on a chair. From what I could see, it looked like it had issues!
I opened it and sure enough, it was worn in several spots. Aunt Reeta loved that quilt and took it everywhere with her.
Needless to say, I couldn’t leave it in such a condition. I told Roxanne that I would repair it and get it back to her.   It might be smaller, but she would get it back.

Today, I washed and dried it and tomorrow I will start the repair work. I will keep you all informed about my progress😘😘

Please Save Me From The "Quilt Police"!

Beautiful day outside by no golf for the avid golfer--I have bursitis in my right shoulder and it hurts to play!  Crap!!

I joined a QAL on Instagram last week sponsored by "Then Came Jane", using her pattern "Meadowland Quilt".  I bought some Art Gallery fat quarters and got started.  The first week was just to pick your fabric and get it cut.  Well, being a little obsessive, I got a good start in piecing the blocks and finished 8 of 20.  I posted on Instagram and WHAMP, I was slammed by the Quilt Police who decided that 1. I used the wrong 2.5" squares, and 2.  I made my flying geese wrong!!  Oh, by the way, they loved my mistake!!

I posted a nice commentary on Quilt Police on my site!!

I have been digging around my sewing room trying to finish some of my UFO's.  I got one quilted and the binding on.    The pattern is one of Carrie Nelson's and the fabric is Moda's Victoria!

I also made two quilts for a friend's two granddaughters.  Oh, they are soooo cute.  One is made from "Frozen" and one is made from pink doggie fabric.  Did I say that they are soooo cute!

I am making stew and fresh biscuits for dinner, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY COUSIN VONDA!!

Snow, Snow, and NO Golf!

We finally have some snow in the Tri-Cities and it is definitely interfering with my golf game!

BUT, I have been working on some UFO's and cleaning up my sewing room (NO Pics of my sewing room allowed!).
Golf Quilt Top "On the Green" started in July 2019!

I started part-time work last October at "Joann's"!  Haven't spent all of my paychecks at the store, but did pick up lots of backing during December!  I am only working 10 - 15 hours a week, some times less!  However, it is perfect for me at this time!

I listen to Audible books while sewing and quilting.  I have already completed the 2020 Challenge and will receive my reward in March!  I wish that they would give me six months of free books!!

Time to clean up my mess in the sewing room and take a few hours to relax before dinner!
