Lil twister

Got this nifty template to make a sort of tessellated pinwheel thing.  Made a wall hanging.

This is how it started.  5" squares to make the four-patch then bordered with 3" strips.

This is them individually cut up ...

Sewn together ...

Decided on a wall hanging.  Just have to build, quilt and bind.  Then decide where it will be hung.

Valentine runner ... A little late but done!

I intended to have this on the table for Valentine's Day but never got there.  It is done now and being enjoyed.

Fun trip to Sew Inspired Quilt Shop in Simsbury, CT

This was today's haul.'s already put away and the fabric fast will recommence! 👼

Christmas gifts I ran across in the pics.

This was for AnnMarie Campinelli!  I think she likes it.

This was given to Cindy Chapin-Howell.

Disappearing four patch

Finished building the top for this quilt at midnight last night.  So, did I finish it yesterday or today!  Doesn't matter does it?!  Now just have to build the layers and figure out how I want to quilt it.  Will be quilted on the Bernina, that I do know.

Baby Envelope

Love to knit also, although this became kind of monotonous.  Don't think I'll be making another one of these.  The pattern by the same name is from Ravelry.  This was gifted to Alexa and Eric Howell at the shower for their new baby expected to arrive in March 2015.

Quilt Along with Pat Sloan 2015 BOM

Really enjoying following along on this.  Here's January and February.

More valentine stuff

Valentine stuff.

This was a pretty productive week.  Small stuff, but satisfying.  Mug rugs at the beginning and a tote bag for mom.


First finish of 2015

First finish of 2015. This is actually a UFO that I gave my DH for Xmas unfinished. It is now in use. All home spuns. I have another quilt top of the same fabrics to be finished. Not sure when that will be done or who the recipient is going to be.

I'm not good at this blogging thing!

This blogging thing has me stymied.  I periodically visit this space with the intention of keeping a creative diary, then move on to do other things and don't come back.  Well, I'll figure it out, but until then the following will be 'catchup posts'.  

Pic of my sweet Jet to start things off!  This was taken in 2009 so she was 6 years then.  She is going to be 12 this year.  Second pic is of her now.  She has slowed down, but still healthy, loves her cookies and her daddy.  Lol
