When I was in Newfoundland in the spring, my sister-in-law wanted to know how to make a travelling jewelry bag. I had made one for her about 30 years ago. Her daughters were always borrowing it and she thought it would be good if they each had their own.
Here are before and after pictures … I know I prefer the “after” picture! Continue reading
After writing my list of the 9 projects I have on the go, (click HERE), it has helped me to become focused.
The 2 sections of squares became the little zipper pouch. DONE! And, I think it’s super cute! (Thank you Cathy for the package of squares!)
A few days ago, a couple of cousins on my mom’s side came to visit. It was a fantastic visit as I had not seen either of them for at least 50 years! Anyhow … one of them quilts, and when she saw my very

These are the 4 August blocks for the Fireburst Mystery that Tish’s Adventures in Wonderland is hosting. The pattern is currently free, but I suspect that it will be for sale when the mystery is done.

This was a jelly roll mystery that we did at the guild. I attempted to do Angela Walter’s “Swirl Chain” again. (It’s a FMQ pattern that my cousin, Terry, recommended). I tried, but in the end, I ended up doing my own thing. But you know what? I’m totally fine with that and it’s DONE!!! In the end, I like the echoed swirls and echoed teardrops – it gives it a nice texture. (another UFO bites the dust!)
