UFO group of Christine Brown

I had trouble accessing the new UFO group website from Christine Brown's post on the Block Buffet group.  I think that group is a good idea for those of us really trying to tackle UFOs while we are still able!  I recently joined a sewing/quilting Cooperative with exactly that goal in mind--to complete as many UFOs as possible each month while surrounded with good friendly conversation of other quilters embarked on other projects to inspire, encourage, comment, admire and congratulate me when…

Summertime in Adelaide

It's been a beautiful day here in Adelaide.  Temperature is currently 25 degrees celsius and I can hear the native pheasant cooing in the garden outside and I have not done any quilting.  As I have spent most of my day surfing at my quilt place.  Writing to Quilter Bridget and another person.  I have shared a number of things about my life and what's the weather like at Christmas time.  The weather I could go on forever about it, but for everyone in Adelaide, South Australia. Christmas is…

Sewing machine

I bought a new sewing machine today! There was a sewing and quilt expo in town and I got it there. It is a Baby Lock Esante. I pick it up tomorrow at the retail store. I traded in my current machine which is why I have to pick it up.

Out of it; I hope!

Well, I guess I'm finally out of my dry spell!  I've made several things this past month and I'm back to where I used to be with a few quilts in different phases of completion and one in the planning stage.  I'm so glad for this site because of all of my friends and acquaintences here who have encouraged me to get back to it.  I thought I'd lost the quilting bug forever!  I always go overboard with hobbies only to lose interest after a year of two.  But quilting…

applique using Heat n Bond

I've done some dresden plate blocks using the iron-on stuff called Heat 'n Bond.  It works great; I see it opening up a lot of doors for me since my fingers don't do hand work well anymore.

My big question is... will it ever 'soften up'?  It is very stiff and I only used the medium bond stuff.  I don't see that it will quilt well or even make for a nice soft comfortable quilt.  Will washing help?

Flooding Memories

(This month I’m posting excerpts from my books and telling you the story behind them.)

I remember several floods while growing up on the farm I featured in my Butter in the Well book series.

The creek runs through the middle of the farm, with the river on the west border. Most times the creek is dry, but it can flood quickly as…
