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.

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!

  1. Hi Char, it's been a while since you posted. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of your quilts. If you have teenagers around, I'm sure they know how to load your pictures on your computer.

    I hope you had a good Christmas.
    Happy New Year.
    Hugs, Julia
