About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Hallelujah it worked!

Now i just need to figure out how to add more pictures to my computer.   I had just a regular tower drive, then switched to Apple Mac.   So my son transferred files over from my other drive to the Mac.  Now I want to add pictures probably from my camera.  Will work on figuring that out!  Wish me luck!

Just trying something....

Approaching the new year of 2019

Happy New Year!

I’ve had a busy 2018.  Wish I could have posted pictures!  I think I might have a way to post pictures, just have to play with it on my computer.  Probably won’t be able to do it from my tablet but that’s okay.

I made a quilt that once I washed it I found four places where it had shred at the seams.  Started a quilt but didn’t really like the colors so I put all those blocks aside but ended up making a nine patch and giving it to a friend for Christmas.  She loved it.  My granddaughter had her dad ask me if I’d make her another quilt... something ethereal (uh what?) so I picked a carpenter star design with my idea of ethereal fabric in batiks.  Currently hand quilting a quilt as a gift for someone...hopefully will post pictures of that.

Started re organizing my craft room in the fall and found three quilts -small and table runners sandwiched, basted and ready to hand quilt.  Found fabric I forgot I had bought etc.   But then the holidays were fast approaching so the room got put on a back burner and became the place where everything under the sun went.  Today I spent four hours cleaning, putting things away, etc.  Ended up with three bags of trash!!  Still have loads of stuff to purge or take to the goodwill.  Need to organize my cross stitch and needle punch stuff better....I’m sure you know the routine!  Wish me luck and success!

Thanks for stopping by!

Time flies....when you’re having fun...when you’re busy working around yard...it just flies in general!

I have been so busy this summer!  Last year we worked on our bathroom and one of the casualties of that was that we let our gardens go.  So this year we are having to,weed big time and it feels like we’re getting no where fast!

My friend and I want to go to the Apple store to learn how to use our iPads better...you know, post pictures, etc.   But between her schedule and mine we just haven’t been able to fit it in....

I finally finished my Jane Harris sampler after about five years.  I’ve always done my own framing but this was too big for me to attempt.  Well imagine my shock over the cost to frame it!😳. Whew!  I had sticker shock big time!   It’s still at the framer....has been for three weeks.  Should be ready in a day or so.  Meanwhile I’ve been working on The Little House needlework Farmhouse series to put on my Christmas tree this year.   I also have two quilts sandwiched and ready to hand quilt.  Started quilting one of them today.

I’m hoping to be able to post pictures soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here we are in February already!

And I’m still trying to figure out how to post pictures to my blog... I may have to schedule a class at the nearest Apple store to learn how to do that and how to delete and add songs to my iPod.   But that will have to wait until probably March because February is supposed to be a “colder than normal and snow above normal” for February here in Ohio.

Meanwhile I’m wetting lots of hand quilting done.  Almost finished with one quilt.  Then just have to make the lost block and sew all,the blocks together for another quilt top, sandwich, and quilt.  I still have two more quilt tops to mark and sandwich as well as a table runner.  And one more quilt top to sew together and quilt.  Hoping to get these all completed this year.  Hoping to get at least two more quilted before the weather gets too warm.  Big plans....LOL!

I had taken up rug hooking several years ago.  I have one finished and I think, 3 or 4 to finish.  All small rugs.  Then I just kind of lost interest for a couple of years...life got in the way.  Lately I’ve been yearning to put them on my frame and finish them.  I see so many pretty rugs and mats on Facebook...Out of Hand Rug Hookers group.  So maybe this will be the year for rughooking for me.

Take care, stay warm and thanks for stopping by!
