I've moved over here since MQB is closing down. I use my blogging space to share my needlework adventures, primarily quilting, but other fiber arts on occasion as well. I also throw in assorted bits about my family, job, garden, and other areas of my life. On occasion, I have been known to offer a political opinion or two, but I do try to keep that minimal. ;)

At the present time, I'm working on placemats that I began making to sell in the Folk Art Emporium, but since I've withdrawn from that venture, I now have a set of 8 very nice placemats to finish. Problem is--they look terrible with my dishes! Solution--Barb needs to go out and get the new set of dishes she's been threatening to get for the past 5 years or more. I would post some pix except, darn it, I seem to have misplaced my camera. I am also working on a quilt to be auctioned off at a school fundraiser in mid June which needs more attention than it's getting right now. I finished the center of a queen sized Irish Chain and need to make the pieced border and then finish it off. This one has a pale yellow background and I used batik purples, blues and greens for the chains across. I think it looks great--hope the bidders at the auction think so too. I made a throw-size quilt for the thing last year but wasn't able to attend so I don't know how much it sold for. I'll be attending the fundraiser this year so we'll see what the quilt fetches.

When I find the camera, I'll post pix.



  1. I like the way you think, my car doesn't look good with the new seat covers I bought, can I purchase a new car (just kidding-wish it worked like that) I use to look shopping for dish sets, now I am down to everyday, a disply set from my mom and a couple of saved sets for my girls. Most everything else has been gifted over the years. I bet your place mats are wonderful when they demand a new set of plates! cw

  2. Oh Rats! You have to buy new dishes?? What a bummer! That's why I bought off-white last time around. I can't wait to see a picture of that quilt! It sounds beautiful. Rhoda

  3. Buy those new dishes. You deserve it. I like the Irish Chain. It is beautiful. It is one of the quilts on my "to do" list. Maybe this summer. Robin
