Time Well Spent

Posted on July 1, 2013 at 1:22pm 5 Comments

  I love quilting, I am not an expert, but I love free motion quilting. No matter how hard I try my stitching never turns out "perfect" or at least good enough for entry into a quilt show. I have won ribbons at the state fair but I've never been able to get my quilts into a big show. My stitches are never all the same size. I usually make a mistake or two while turning or stop and starting. I keep trying, and I keep getting better. It is time well spent.

  I teach free motion quilting…


The Creative Mind

The Creative mind


  I just read Ellen Anne Eddy’s Blog about hoarding and I began to look around me and see if I too was a hoarder. Well, yes, I guess I am, but why? What is it about a creative person that makes us keep everything?

  I still have a size 9 dress that I just love, of course I haven’t been able to wear it for at least 29 years! Why do I still have it? I am pretty sure, even if I lost weight, I would never again wear a size 9 or that dress, it is for a…

Hi Lyn,  I just took a moment to watch your slide show.  Are these machine embroidered & your design?  Are they small quilts?  They are beautiful!

Hi Lyn,

I live not far from you, in Elma.  We have a Peony farm here which was moved from Shelton in 2005.  I grew up on the Kitsap Peninsula in Port Orchard.  Are you doing the Mystery Quilt?

Thanks Lyn, that would be wonderful.

be safe Lyn, It is very dry here as well and be are all worried if a fire should break out, thing is we only have one way out if one should start. We really do need rain and lots of it, even the salmon cant get up the rivers to spawn the water is so low. You would thuink that living on the west coast things would be damp, but not this year.  Thank goodness that our well is deep and we have lots of water for the house and garden. Everyone's blocks are sure looking good, will be fun to see the finished projects.

YES! I'm a hoarder!! I have more fabric than I'll ever use in two or three lifetimes, not to mention beads, embellishments, threads, tools and gadgets, and books... oy... the books I have that may never be read as they deserve to be read! I don't hoard much else except my art stuff, but that's enough. I love to look through my fabrics... handle them, think about the quilts I'll make with them, how to embellish them, what shows to enter them in, who to gift them to. I love being creative... it's something I MUST do!

The same goes for my music... okay, I confess, I DO hoard music. I still have pieces of sheet music I played when I was just starting piano lessons when I was 4. That was 66 years ago, fercryinoutloud! I have my first organ study books from when I was 10. I have all of my harp music from college, even though I sold my harp in 1978 and haven't played since... I can dream about getting another harp and picking up where I left off, can't I???

I just read Ellen Anne Eddy's blog post about you... she called you one of her favorite lunatic quilters! What an honor! Like you, I have a burning need to create, but I've always know fabric was my medium and haven't tried anything else. I've tried all manner of fabric creativity, though. This weekend, I'm piling on another new class - with Marlene Glickman, working with embellishing silk. Will I ever use the wealth of knowledge I expect her to impart to me? Who knows... I just know I HAVE to learn how to do this, HAVE to add this skill to my brain. I want to learn everything I can about fabric, and to share it with others and bring light and loveliness into their lives. In that respect, I guess I'm a hoarder of knowledge, as well as other things.

Thanks for this mind challenge!!

Yeah...I know!  I have to have time to sew or I will go nuts...LOL!

I agree with you 100%... Brian is my best friend...and he has told me that I am his.  I truly hope he is my lifetime partner...I'm tired of broken relationships. 

At 2:46pm on September 27, 2012, Gina Koston said…

Yes, I am.  My son's dad and I got divorced in 2003.  We share custody and placement of our son, who is now 12 years old.  Yes, my profile picture is of me and my boy.  He was being silly and made a face when the picture was taken.  LOL!

I do have a wonderful boyfriend though...we've been dating since last December and it's been going very well.  He's very good with my son, and he has a son the same age.  The two boys get along together very well, too!  I'd like to get married again, someday.  I'm hoping Brian feels the same way...only time will tell.  He hasn't been divorced as long as I have...and his past relationship left him with zero self esteem or trust in women...therefore, I have a lot of patience with him!  He's a good man...worth waiting for!  My parents and grandparents just love him to grandma says he's a keeper and to hang onto this one!  LOL!

Oh wow, Lyn!  I don't think I could do all that stuff myself like you do!  I just learned how to can last month, and made pickles, dilly beans, jams, pickled beets, pickled sweet cherries, salsa, etc...I went nuts, but it took so much time!  

I had to take on a 2nd day job is only part time, and it's a 45 min drive from home one way, so I go through a lot of gas in my 8 cylinder Mercury Grand Marquis car!  LOL!  I love the car, but it uses the gas!  So now I'm working as a cook/bartender for a local supper club, part time nights and weekends.  It takes away a lot of my sewing time, which is a bummer, but I can't do anything about it until I can find ONE full time job, so I don't have to work 2 part time jobs.

I think it's wonderful how you've been able to change your lifestyle!  I know I would have a really hard time with it.

Hi, Lyn,  I hope you are feeling much better!  I'm not familiar with what the treatment is, hope it's rest & a speedy recovery.  I'd love the play date!  I'm drawn to art quilting, but love the mystery quilts for learning techniques & ideas.  My thread painting teacher has been Libby Lehman; I took her Threadplay 1 workshop a couple years ago.  I'll post some quilt pictures when I get home next week.
