I Love Celtic Knots!

I have been so interested in knots as long as I can remember.  It started with my father’s boat, then Girl Scouts, then macramé… and has never ended.  When I first really noticed Celtic knots and their symbolism, I was hooked.  Celtic knots are not so much knots as braids, and once you notice them, you…

To Sew or Not to Sew Over Steam a Seam 2?

.  To Sew or Not to Sew?   This is one of my most frequently asked questions!   A customer recently contacted me and asked this about the snowflakes.  I was happy to reply, but after doing so thought that I should address the need to sew over Steam a Seam 2 here as well. The answer…

A Slower Paced Easter

No masks in this post!   I did make myself one and a couple for friends, but have laser, will move on.  Another need that is out there is “ear savers.”  Nurses and other medical personnel are covering their masks with fabric masks.  The elastic us home sewists are using hurts the back of their ears,…

One of my problems is snippers & scissors.  I try to have one at each space, but somehow I keep moving them, resulting in it being across the room when needed.

We Are Blossoming!

After God and family, I love quilting and designing! And close behind those is my flowers. I miss them so in the winter, but without that time of waiting, I know I would not appreciate the spring flowers near enough. One of my very favorite spring flowers is the poppy. I just love the oranges,…

Meet Beeper the Maine Coon Cat

I would like you to meet Beeper, my sister’s Maine Coon cat.  I took this picture of Beeper just before  my computer went down as she enjoyed the sun coming through the sliding glass door.  She is so regal.  Those eyes!  She looks clear down inside of you. She is also the model for my…

What a Whirlwind Month!

It has been a very busy month!  Just a month ago, we were contacted about a quilt using our “Scarlet Cardinal” kit.  Then the lady made contact again to inform us that the Circleville Goodtime Quilters (a great group, by the way!) were looking for a couple more vendors at their good sized show.  Now…
