It's hump day

I have so many WIP's right now there's not enough time in the day to work on them. I really need to get busy.

Which I'm trying.

Here is a WIP I started 3 years ago

This is the first diamond I've worked on this year.
I had a bag of the hexies with some fabric that I needed to be able to work more on this quilt.

And for the life of me I could not find it anywhere, I thought I could of lost it last October when I took Mom and Dad to California.

I keep all the stuff for this quilt in this small suitcase I found at a flea market and it wasn't in there. 

But I found the bag this past weekend. It was in the truck we use sometime when go somewhere. You see the "Man of the place" thinks my Subaru is just to small, "made for hobbits"
Well in the glove compartment was my bag of hexies.  

Now it's back in the suitcase.

This afternoon I worked on one of the granddaughters quilts my step-mother started.
I'm hoping to get this one done tomorrow. Then I'll have 2 more to go.

The other WIP I'm pretty much done with is the shawl I crochet from a pattern in PomPom

So it's wash and being blocked
Boy is it a long one, 78" long and about 24" wide
So pretty and light. 

That enough if you ask me but it unfortunately its not all.

I'm tired now

Until next time


  1. Love the shawl such a beautiful colour, perfect for an evening stroll.

  2. I love that hexagon pattern you are making--the colors are so soft and pretty..they are long-term aren't they? But a great take-along project...~ ~ ~ waving to you from our hot and humid area Julierose

  3. Your quilts are beautiful. I keep thinking that someday I'll make a hexie quilt, but then I see how much work they are and remind myself why I haven't started one. Yours is looking wonderful.

  4. The hexies are looking good. Glad you found your in progress bag. The shawl is gorgeous. At least that's one finish, so something came off your to do list. Have a great weekend.

  5. Glad you found your little hexi bag!

  6. I am glad you found your hexies! The flea market bag is so cute and perfect for them!

    You crochet, knit, sew clothing, quilt, and embroider - you are super girl. I hope these things keep you from going stir crazy with Covid! I think winter will be harder.

How to Make a Portable Design Wall

I had wanted to get a portable design wall to take to retreats but did not want to pay the price. Looked at various pins on pinterest and took ideas from more than one to come up with my verison. It worked out great and only cost a fraction of the price. The PVC pipes, joints and 2 yards of felt cost under $22.00 My design wall is 4' x 4' which stands approximately 5 1/5' tall. For this size need 2 - 10ft length of 3/4" PVC pipe for the frame and 4ft of 1" PVC pipe for the feet Cut the 3/4" PVC into 4 - 4' section                                                                                       2 - 1' section              Cut the 1"  PVC into 4 - 1' section          The joints you'll need will be 2 - 3/4" elbows 2 - 3/4" T's 2 - 3/4" to 1" T (this will be the base of the Feet) 4 - 1" elbow Also need pipe cutters (this cost me almost as much

Yarn Along 2/20/13 Spoon Pin Doily

It's snowing here and I know some of you are tired of snow but here we will take the moisture any way we can get it. Plus it just gives me a reason to stay in and work on some of my projects. In this picture I'm not sure if you can make it out but in the background there are some wild turkeys that hang around the house sometime, just  chilling This project I'm working on is Spool Pin Doilies.   I had never heard of them before until Bonnie Hunter had mentioned it on her blog . She a had a viewer send her one for her sewing machine along with a pattern. I did not like the pattern but loved the idea so I decided to make up my own version. I wanted a more simple, smaller and fuller doily. So I tried different thread sizes to get one that I like. (From left to right) I tried sock yarn, which I'll redo because I think I like that look. Heavy weight crochet thread, nope too big Bamboo yarn, I like it. Looks good on my Kenmore. Pearl cott

My Sunflower Quilt

  Yea it's done. It has been a few years since I started this quilt. It was a BOM at Sager Creek Quilt Shop . Pam's (the owner) friend Marilyn McSpadden designed this quilt and Pam quilted it. Marilyn  used a lot of different techniques in appliqued designs.I just loved the weaving of fabric in the center of this blocks.   What beautiful quilting she did. I favor hand quilting but for machine quilting this is top notch.  As you can see Marilyn had design some of the blocks in 3 dimensional    And the rouging in the center of this sunflower was fun. Love the details in the quilting. This quilt measures 64 x 82 and was a fun challenge. This quilt will go in my dining room.
