Well ladies, I guess I better add my name to this list before I forget.  I would like a 12.5 x 12.5" scrappy string block.  Recently, I have really gotten in the scrappy string block mood.  I love…Continue

Colleen would like the same pattern used as Kris, but with a slight twist.  She would like the center blue, the short side white and the long side red.Continue

Lee would like crazy blocks.  12.5 x 12.5"  Red, Whites, and Blues, of course.  I know that Lee likes live theater, so I was thinking maybe blocks that represented a different Broadway play.  Even…Continue

Melanie has decided to join the log cabin group, so by now everyone should have the instructions for this on, as it has been the most popular block for our group this year.  She would like the red…Continue

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Beth, I hope you and Ginny have a wonderful visit!

Hard to believe I've been in California a month already. I'm still living out of boxes. Finally starting to set up my sewing room. Bedroom is more or less done. I think I've finally hired someone to come in and do a deep clean which is why I'm still living out of boxes. Hopefully, by my birthday it will start to look like home.

I am thrilled to say that all my blocks are done.  I believe there are nine that need to be mailed.  I am going to hand deliver Ginny's becasue she is here in town and may be cheaper to drop them by her house than mail them. LOL

If I am good and think, will take pics of each of them before I mail and post here.  It is always a challenge for me because my phone will not let me upload directly to the site.  I have to email them to myself, upload into computer, then I can post them here.  Technology has it challenges.

To reitterate Wilam HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Happy new year all.  Hopefully we all have a good 2022 with health.  Still working on my blocks in between packing.  Box for SS is also pretty much full.

Oh, almost forgot - I know some people are not happy with FB, but you can set up a page/group and make it private.  I do our church's FB and we have a closed group where we post messages for the members only.  People can post once they are approved/added to the group. 

Just something to think about.

Hello Ladies!  It has been some time since I was on here.  Some things going on - bath remodel and total knee replacement at the same time.  Nothing like having the bathroom tied up when you're using a walker.

I am quite a bit behind but will try to finish everything up in the next couple weeks.  It has been hard to sit and sew for a while, but I'm going to try some todayl

I got 4 of beautiful log cabin blocks in the mail this last week - I'll try to send photos later.

God bless you all in the new year and thank you for your patience.

Happy New Year!

I still don't have my sewing room unpacked. They just anchored the cabinets to the wall yesterday. Now to find sewing room boxes! Before I can really unpack I have to have someone come in and do a deep cleaning. Too much dirt, dust, and grime and I'm having difficulty breathing. Turns out my neighbor has a cleaning business and her quote was the best. Now to get on her schedule.  Meanwhile, I'm living out of boxes. Hopefully, soon I'll be able to get into sewing mode again and can finish up the blocks I didn't get finished.

Happy New Year. Today I will finish the last thing for my Secret Santa and get it in the mail on Monday. Then will get my blocks finished and get them in the mail. Hopefully I can be a little more organized in 2022. 

The kitchen project is taking longer than I thought it would. Not the contractors fault. When the counter got installed it was wrong - sink was set back 7 inches when it should have been 3 -4 inches . so had to wait 2 1/2 weeks for the new one. The guy from the counter company apparently did the template wrong. New piece is in and backsplash is done. Today the under cupboard lighting is being put and soon they will put in the new floor and paint the walls. Then they will start the bathrooms. 

Thank you Kathy and Virginia for the beautiful quilt blocks. Hope to get my blocks in the mail to you all next week.

Yes, I am a chatter box today. Going to see baby Ellie today.  She has four teeth already, army crawling all over the place, and is now sitting up on her own.  We are going grocery shopping for tomorrow's gathering.

Happy New Year everone!!!!!!!!!!!

I am on a roll, I have two more blocks to go and will get these mailed on Monday.  

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on December 29, 2021 at 7:05pm

Received two blocks yesterday.  Thanks Colleen and Ginny.  Very nice.

Worked on the log cabin blocks…having a heck of a time getting 12-1/2”…finally the 3rd one worked.  So just 4 more left.  I want to mail them next week…know I am late, but I haven’t forgotten.  Plus a challenge as a lot of fabric is packed.
