My Santa List

Kelly at Charming Chatter is hosting a wonderful wishlist give-away. Kelly wants to hear our favorite Chrismas memory. We should also share our Christmas wish from things offered from her quilt shop. How sweet!!!

We lived in a center hall Colonial and our bedroom door was right near the steps. Nearly every year, my four children would come into our room EARLY and beg us to let them go down and see if Santa came. I made them wait and wait and wait at the top of the stairs to build up the excitement (they'd inch their way down, step by step) until one year, the oldest had this brilliant idea of going down and checking first and then he woke everyone up saying that Santa came...needless to say, we had a long discussion with him about the Santa thing for his younger siblings!!!

Back to the give-away, here's my list of things I'd love to have from her shop:

The thing I really, really, really want is the Stella Blue quilt kit--did you see the colors??? How can you resist? I want it!!!! Santa, I've been good!!!! I'd love to do a quilt along, too!

I joined the Year of Schnibbles, so any one of those patterns would be next on my list and, of course, the charm pack that goes with them!!

The fat quarter would be the Boutique fat quarter bundle by Chez Moi from Moda. I would be so happy!!!

I think I'd like to try the Mill House Inn jelly roll by Fig Tree for Moda. I just love their stuff.

The Panache layer cake by Sanae for Moda would do just fine!!!

This was my first visit to her store so I've fallen in love with nearly everything!!! I'll be back--lots!

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
