More Dino Progress

I decided that all the crosshatching I'd been doing was too narrow and wouldn't be puffy enough for a kid's quilt, so I will have to rip out the bottom border. That didn't seem like something I wanted to do today, so I opted to do the top border at 3" intervals. I am so much better now at straight lines (thanks to the Line Tamer), so I'm happy to rip the narrow ones out, but doing that another day! LOL

I tried to outline the appliqued letters, but I need lots more practice at doing the curves so I just did the "I," "N" and "A" for today. 

I'm thinking of using Art and Stitch to applique them. I'd like to have something to practice using the software to get done, but then I'll never get better at outlining. Vicious circle, isn't it?

No progress on any other project. I did a bit of virtual window shopping which ended up being a time sucker. Sign. 


  1. "They" say practice makes perfect.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I really dislike "They," because they are just as bad as the quilt police.

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…

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…

A New Project
