Road to California quilt top

I thought I published a blog on the finished quilt top  but I do not see it here so here it is again.  I finished the row houses with the cities reprensenting Chicago and San Francisco on each end and the stars over head on Thursday night, January 19 and had carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand the next day.  It went really well and by 2PM Saturday, I was back to drawing…

Monday morning on a Tuesday

Good morning Campers! 

Here we are back at it again after a three day weekend.  I did not meet my goal of having the cityscape blocks done over the three day weekend.  Drat!  Will probably finish them up this week before the hand surgery on Friday.  Some other stuff got in the way, like, laundry, interaction with family members, eating, sleeping, taking a shower....all those usual distractions.

A three day quilting weekend ahead of me - yahoo!

Good morning fellow quilters! 

It's finally Friday and this working girl is looking towards a three day weekend to work on quilts.  God bless Martin Luther King and happy birthday Marty!  It's cold as blue blazes outside and we are expecting snow so I know I will be staying home and working on quilts all weekend.  I have three going at the same time right now: 1) the wedding quilt for first daughter, Jamie and son in law, Jeff, 2) the Thanksgiving cross stitch quilt (picture…

All those quilts to document!

Hello friends and fellow quilters:

I have started a project to document all my quilts and today added several photo albums to my blog.  As a quilter, you know the project is never done until you share it with someone.  I hope you will allow me to share my quilts with you.  Stay tuned for more - I have quite a few to get through!

Happy quilting!

Fondue and poetry

Eating fondue with my sweetie and my nephew, Nick.  And discussing our favorite poetry.  Here is mine:

I Carry Your Heart With Me

i carry your heart with me

i carry it in my heart

i am never without it

anywhere i go you go, my dear;

and whatever is done

by only me is your doing, my darling

i fear no fate

for you are my fate, my sweet

i want no world

for beautiful you are my world, my true

and it’s you…

Christmas in California was wonderful

and it is such fun to see family heirlooms in my daughter's house (see pillow in background which I made in the 1990's).  And of course, there is my grandson!  What a hoot!…

Getting ready for a sewing weekend in March 2012 with Daughter Becky

Becky and I try to get together one week a year for just sewing.  We will be working on a Thanksgiving cross stitch quilt this time, plus some other sewing projects.  I just bought Beck a sewing machine of her very own so we are both very excited to get busy. 

All of the cross stitch blocks are done and I have done the preliminary planning.  We will be doing a "shadowbox" arrangement of the blocks with four quilted borders and a pieced house block.  Stay tuned for pictures.…
