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!

  1. Hi Gloria! What great Christmas memories -- oh the anticipation of checking to see if Santa came! Sounds like such fun -- I can see why your oldest was tempted to sneak (LOL)! Thanks for joining us in the fun, and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!


Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?

I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:

It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
