Hello everyone!!!! As you can see the picture function is working again:) Yea!!!!

Alrighty then! This is another..... yes another twister quilt I made....still needs quilting:)

This is a cool technique I found a new ruler for while visiting shops in Florida. The ruler is called "Double Diamond Ruler". Way easy to make.... This is just a sample piece to give it a try.

                                     Here is the pumpkin BOM all done except for a border.....

Here it is with the new diamond border...beautiful!!!!!!!!

One of the piles of fleece blankets I cut, slit and then crocheted the borders on for Project Linus. I have another pile that big to go today:) These I did on the trip in the car. There is nothing but pine trees from AL to Daytona Beach.

 Here are a few pieces of the quilt I am working on now in 30's fabrics. Yes the fabrics will all be from my stash so that means it…

Hi !

I have been following a blog hop that is asking the bloggers to use words to describe themselves in their projects. Pretty neat ideas but made me think my word this year will be Thankful. I am thankful for family, friends, health and even thankful for hateful people, traffic, computer software problems and everything in between! Finished reading a book and it really opened my eyes to Thankfullness. It was called Prison to Praise by Merlin Carothers.

Ok the quilting bug is biting so had to quilt a customer quilt yesterday:) Have a Project Linus loaded for this afternoon.

The frame is not yet in Texas due to snow:( She is coming from Iowa. Then we have to plan a setup date with Missy and my schedule. Good luck with that:) haha!!!

Ok here are pics of the sewing I have been doing to pass the time...

Well okay it won't let me load pics again:( I know I have the memory to do it but the little button is not coming up to upload.

Alrighty then I guess pics will come later:(

Happy Sewi…

Happy New Year!!!!!!

Hello everybody and welcome 2013:) Hope you had a wonderful holiday!!!

I got to spend time with my daughter in MS and my inlaws in FL. It was a mini vaca on the beach!!!! we drove and although it was long it was pretty uneventful:) yea!!!! While it was raining and in the 30's in Tx it was sunny/partly cloudy and upper 60's in Fl. We got to walk the beach every morning except one when it was a windy 38. Lots of people on the beach but not near as many as in the summer:) Good for us!

This was the view from our hotel room. We stayed at the Atlantic Ocean Palm Inn. A nice inexpensive clean hotel right on the beach.
We did some touristy things while we were there.....visited the Angell and Phelps Chocolate Factory in Daytona....nice free tour and samples:)
The San Sebastian Winery in St Augustine. Nice free tour and free samples:) Bought a case of their Vintners Red and 2 Rosa. Yums!!!!
Also the Whetstone Chocolate factory. Had to pay for the tour but it was VERY informative. I…
