A solid project


I am having too much fun
Wish I could stay home and play
These little 4 patches look so cute
Surrounded in solids

It would even make a cute baby quilt 
Of course i have no idea yet what i am making lol
Just 2.5 squares surrounded by 2.5 inch strips
Easy and cute and bonus 2.5 squares
Out of the leftovers


Dunkin did a cat scan to test my seams


Then did the roll test for
Softness and durability


Then the stretch test for size...
With that big butt Dunks I think 
I better keep sewing for a bit longer

Black sheep black sheep have you any wool


Ok not wool  but three skeins full
I started this scarf number 4 at the garage
While I waited for oil change and tire
Rotation
(Hey remember that camera angle my leg looks thin lol)

It is about half done
So a couple nights of
Knitting should finish it off 
And Three skeins will be
Outta the stash
(CAN YOU SEE ME DOING THE HAPPY DANCE? GO ME LOL)

farmgirl vintage


I have been a bad leader.......
I NEED TO KEEP GOING ON THIS QUILT

the raccoon block is a challenge for me right now
sooooooooo

I think I need to get with Jacky and pick two more blocks
for the month of MAY

anyone making a farmgirl?  I may try and do some
of the 12 inch blocks. saw the cutest quilt
made of 12 inch blocks
not many are needed to make a small lap
or wall
a cute sheep for Easter
a pumpkin for the Fall
the mixer for the kitchen
teakettle
any interest? or should I just finish mine on my own.........



The gift that keeps on giving


See these cuties?
As I was sewing my geese blocks
I used the squatrs JulieRose gave
Me as leaders and enders
And voila  a pile of them
Was born in no time



And as you know I got some cool
Solids from Vrooman recently
Not to mention the mailroom Stash
So I  added solids around them 
And  played with layout
Not like i have any ufos to
Work on hee hee


See this julie
STILL have half a baggie


And i made these too
For another quilt

Love my quilty friends

dresdens


anyone interested in making dresdens?

I was thinking of doing a project for everyone to join in 
that would be a small table topper
but made with the help of your friends

what do you think?  
anyone?  
I could give everyone the pattern
and then you would trade a dresden blade
with everyone and we would each make our dresden
color of our choice into a topper or wall hanging

anyone?


Four more blocks

 

I am having so much fun with this
Quilt and these scraps
I only need 4 blocks
But will make a few extra to play
With arrangement

Now the hard question
Background white?
Gray like my walls?
Or black?

Hmmmmm......
What say you????

You color my world


I am almost done with a top

The color placement will be the
Next challenge as I have a design
Floor not a wall. It also comes with
Cat-auto block removal but that
Feature is broken and blocks get
Removed before I can take pictures
Lol
Not sure if the colors I have will all
Work. The black blocks kinda stick out
We will see later when the setting color
Is chosen......thinking gray to match my
Bedroom
Then after that the 
challenge
Will be saving to have it quilted
I cant handle one that large


This is what I have been eating lots of
Lately
Fruits and veggies and less processed 
A guy at work is doing whole 30 diet
It is very restrictive but is supposed
To clean your body of toxins and
Make you feel better
He is on day 3 and says he has more
Energy
I need energy so wanted to give it a try
Am slowly preparing as i have lots of 
Things like dairy and oatmeal which are not allowed 
I was already on no sugar and no fake sweetener so that part is ok
Breakfast will be hard for me
My goto is oatmeal with fruit
Grains not allowed
Then after the 30 days you reintroduce
The dairy and grains etc and see how
Your body reacts
If negatively you have 

mild allergy
And should avoid that food 


And lately these teas are a fav
Need ways to help me destress
And get this bloodpressure down

Hubs has more health issues and it
Is difficult to take so much time off at work
To deal with it all
But this too shall pass.....
Anyone else heard of whole 30?
Tried it? 
I love veggies so the hard part will be
All the prepping ahead so I  dont falter

Solids and liquids


In school did you learn about solids and
Liquids and gasses? Lol
Ice and water and vapor
Why I thought of that this morning is
A mystery to me 
I  got this huge box in the mail
Noooooopppeee
I didnt order from Jenny
I won it at vroomans blog
She was clearing out solids and i
Just happen to be lacking solids



Lookie at all this
WOW 
LOTS to play with


There are even stratas sewn



Look at this
Can you say SQUIRREL 

I feel another play session coming on......
THANKS SHARON FOR MY NEW 
STASH

This may become a second quilt


I really like the cool colors 
Of blue green and purple
And may need to make one
I should have enough stash!




This is what i found today waking up
Does this look comfy?
I  give up
The majority of tablecloths etc were 
Moved and dishware put in but he still
Gets in there grrrrrr






All my blocks so far
Getting there..........
What are you making?

I have to sew faster


I need to sew faster
All these quilts started and no dent in the stash 


They keep multiplying lol
Here are all the HST cut from my geese
I know I know they are tiny 
I will play with them another day
Baskets? Tree of life?
Feathered star?



I prepped more of these



And cut more fabric
Blocks 2.5 and some
Geese 2.5 x 4.5





See? Messy i know but Full
I cant even put the mailroom
Stash in yet
May need   to
Make some pillowcases to move some
Pieces out


These smell so nice in my sewing room 
Have to keep there because of cats
I start my day smelling these and sewing
What could be better?


Found this in ufo pile
4 blocks sewn together 
Would you make a table topper or baby quilt as is?
Use as medallion and keep going?


These are some of my 2.5 squares
I keep making things out of them
And I 

Thought my geese would deplete my stash
Seems those geese are like rabbits and 
Multiply instead!

Thanks Julierose


Julie I made all of these blocks
From the squares (my half mind you)
And look how beautiful they are
The three orange ones will go with
One project and the others will be in my
Geese quilt 
I AM THRILLED TO PIECES
but
I HAVE TO ASK YOU

are these trick squares?
I think they multiply
I SWEAR I KEPT them in the baggie
By themselves and LOOK!


STILL stuffed and cant shut it
YOU TELL ME HOW THAT HAPPENS
if that little fabric makes all this
Then I have a room with a potential
Of 1000 or more quilts
LOL
thanks for making my day
(Ps  dont tell Jacky but I think I 
Got the prettiest squares)
Did too did too!

I get by with a little help from my friends



My good friend JulieRose of julierosequilts
Sent me and Jacky a package


She always makes it so purty
And fancy..... with a cute card


Look at all this goodness!





Jacky and I started 
Splitting up the spoils
It started out very
Amicably........







Then there were some that both
Of us liked.......



A fight ensued...
Some squares got thrown 
And 
With kicking and screaming and
Husbands seperating us to
Avoid injury or jail time 


Lets just say we didn't always see
Eye to eye
After all, these are some FUN SQUARES
To play with



But when the dust settled 
We were both very happy
With our new stash enhancements

And are friends again....... lol
THANKS JULIEROSE! 
From the both if us. .........
You will be seeing these squares 
In a sewing room project near you.........

Loving these more and more


I am really loving these blocks
And to think this is my scraps
Funny thing
My bins are full of blues and greens 
But these are yellows and reds
Some purples and browns need
To be added to the mix
This may be a flimsy soon......

I love birds


Thanks everyone for my birthday
Wishes. I did get to sew a little

These are the migration geese blocks 
So far. Coming along quickly
Pretty soon will have to decide
On white or gray background
To put them together 



Dunks is looking for the birds lol
We also have my yellow finches
At the feeder 
Saw one the other day and they must
Have told their friends
Because it is almost empty already. 
Either that or some fat little birds!
What are you working on 
Notice 
No deer

No raccoon
No bunny or chicky runner
I am into Geese at the moment

I am a bird brain
A fly by night 
A dodo


Thursday, April 5, 2018

Today is my birthday


Dunks is giving me  kisses


Phoebe is too


Hoping my friend feels better
I will be Spending the day working 
Then hoping to relax
I dont need gifts
Or flowers 
Or jewelry
Or anything at my age
Just let me sew in peace
Without interruption
Would be the best gift
No cost,no wrapping,no returning
Just pure bliss........
Next year is gonna be a big one
At least I have a whole year to get ready
Wanna piece of cake my friends?
Ice cream?
Here you go........
Thanks for stopping by
