We should have lots of fabric--so join Bonnie Hunter and Gudrun Erla for a Quarantine Quiltalong on Sunday.  Stuff will be available on Facebook Live or on YouTube with a delay.  The pattern has four sizes and is free!  They are planning lots of fun stuff, giveaways and a chance to sew together distantly.

You can find more information here:

Watch the video to see how fun this will be!  I am planning to sew but am not affiliated in any way.  Just thought I would spread the fun!  Hope to "see" you Sunday!

Blissful hugs at a distance,

P.S.  Saw my first bluebird yesterday, and I have snowdrops!

Happy Holidays!!!!

Just a quick note to wish everyone a joyous Christmas or Hanukkah!  The weather held off here, so travel was easy once you got off the icy driveway.  Actually did some rearranging and put out my Sara: 
Plain and Tall houses.  Have had them since the 80's or 90's-- still stored all these years in the original boxes. Even washed, ironed and re-hung my kitchen curtains! The whole room looks brighter!  Finished binding a hand-pieced apple core last night.  Took me awhile to find the extra fabrics.  Planning to rearrange my stash so the colors I use most often are not on shelves too high to easily reach.  That's my next priority. What have you got planned for this last week of 2019 and beyond?

Are you remembering how special you each are?

Blissful hugs,

Yes, I'm still here.  Tomorrow is the two-year mark.  My left hand is a bit better, but still not like it was.  I'm still quilting, but by machine for the time being.  For some strange, unknown reason, I am pretty good at hand blanket stitch and am working to add a star to a quilt I machine pieced before all the unpleasantness.  Machine quilting with my walking foot on my featherweight.  It's true--I taught five featherweight classes this fall.  Done now til I know the weather is not so iffy.  Driving some, mowed my own lawn (2 acres) this year with my riding mower, did as much yard work myself as I could.  Some people say "Witch" like it's a bad thing! ;-)  I'm walking inside without a cane, but try to use one if I'm outside.  All in all, I have much to be thankful for!  What are you thankful for?

Back soon with pics of my new quilts--stay tuned!

Blissful hugs,
