Foodie Blog Hop


Oh, I am late!!  I had a timer set for post release and it didn't go off.  But my life is a bit upside down so add it to the list.

Thank you CARLA for hosting this 'tasty' hop.    When fabric comes in fat quarters that don't add calories to a quilter's diet - all is good.

I've used this FREE PATTERN a few times to make this quick pineapple wall hanging.  They make great housewarming gift along with a basket filled with eatables and/or kitchen goodies.

And I had to go outside the box with a 'food' block - the Cake Stand.

Cute little miniature blocks in a simple setting with some of my Civil War scraps.

Monday Making


I went amiss again!  Several family and personal things came up that had to be taken care of.  Family is always first.  I have been working slowly on my project for the FOODIE hop coming up - so  secret sewing.  It helps to have things prepped by the machine to grab those few minutes.  It will be finished.

I had a few meeting in the mix as well.  The Catskill Mountain Quilters Hall of Fame finally had an in-person meeting in over 2 years.  One of the members brought four old quilt tops.  She was going to pass them all to me, but I said - Hold them up and lets share.  I came home with this one.  Very different from anything in my collection.  I know this as "the Teasure Box' but I'm sure this block is known by other names.

In less than a week, we went from almost freezing and a snow storm to horrid heat and dry.  The flower beds got worked on a little here and there as well as the first mowing of the lawn  OR I should say acreage as there is a lot to mow here.  We are to have three days of storms, so I hope to get more stitching time in.

Sewingly Yours,

Happy Mother's Day


I hope you all have (or have had) a lovely day.  We will be very low key as many friends and family members have the new Covid - keeping Mom safe.
