This morning started like a well oiled machine, everything was packed in my car for each activity. As I was heading from my last errand to yoga (early!) I realized that I forgot my yoga mat. So that extra time was taken up by going home to get my mat. This led to rushing into… Continue reading Timing
Sometime over the past few weeks our snowman windsock became plastered to the roof. It is frozen in place. This was likely due to a combination of wind, rain and icy yuck (delicately referred to as wintry mix by our local meteorologists). Yesterday I noticed the snowman is upside down. This made me think of… Continue reading Distressed!
It is that time again–time to announce my quilt plans for the first quarter of 2019. It is a busy year what with two family graduations, one family wedding, and maybe some other things going on. So, with no further ado, let’s get to my VERY ambitious list. First up is my Variable Ohio Stars… Continue reading 2019–1st Quarter
The Big Boy quilt is done! I used Christa Watson’s pattern, Out of the Box, featured in the December 2018 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. Upon opening it, my grandson announced it had a spider web and rolled around in it. High praise from the 3.5 year old world! Here we are with his… Continue reading Big Boy Quilt
Fresh from my sewing room are 10 more gadget holders, all for Christmas gifting. So I am writing this on December 18 but will not post it until after they have been distributed. These were fun to make, I hope they will be useful to the intended recipients. As you can see, 4 of them… Continue reading Ten More Gadget Holders
October is a special month, I get to go on two quilt retreats. Although, they were different from each other both were excellent. I got lots done and had even more fun. One important discovery: The Duck Song. Give it a listen! And I thought about how sometimes one has to take a step back… Continue reading Retreat!
How can 3/4 of the year be gone already? It is true that the weather is changing and I am changing out seasonal clothing but how is it October? This quarter finds me working on some old favorites (each of which moved along last quarter but aren’t quite done) along with some new projects. First… Continue reading 2018 Resolutions Part 4
Just got home from retreat(!). These 6 cute pouches are the first thing I worked on there. They might be part of someone’s holiday gift this year… My plans for third quarter can be found here: https://ponderingitall.blog/2018/07/16/2018-resolutions-part-3
As you might be able to tell, I am experimenting with where the little tabs go. Current thinking is that the orange and yellow holders have them in the approximate right place. These 4 holders represent my commitment for this quarter, I believe there will be MANY more next quarter. I made two last quarter:… Continue reading More Gadget Holders
As you may recall from here: https://ponderingitall.blog/2018/07/16/2018-resolutions-part-3/ I wanted to get the cross stitch done this quarter (and before the baptism). It was ready (slightly) over 24 hours before the big day! This photo was taken with the cross stitch resting on my sweet granddaughter’s quilt, also done before the big day. There was… Continue reading Baptismal Cross Stitch
