Monday Making


These bags have fallen off the shelf so many times that I finally said ENOUGH!

These bags were part of some left overs from one of our guild meeting's "free table" goodies.  Lots of HSTs and cut triangles yet to be HSTs (and a few pinwheels) - my kind of mindless thinking sewing.

I had the groups of sewn HSTs by the machine and stitched a few as time allowed over the weekend.  30 pinwheels waiting for the rest  of the scraps to be worked up.

 I chained the rest of the triangles and grouped into their sets.  Now to get these spinning.  If I plan to set these 8 by 8 I will have to dig thru my scraps for 'matchy' fabrics to make four more - I actually have some of these fabrics in my mix - lol!

This will be a Summer project and will result in a donation quilt for the guild collection - scraps that got passed up made into a a quilt that will give someone a hug.

Have you line up your Summer sewing project?  I have four that I would like to move along during the Dog Days - slow and steady is the plan.

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.

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.

A New Month


It's sunny and warm here - a bit breezy, but a good day to be outside.  Tending some flower beds and then the first mow of the year.  Fresh mowed grass - love the smell.

Enjoy Your Day,
