The last ride in Scabby was met with enthusiasm. We'll get him back up to my parents' sometime soon.

Another needle casualty means that the widowed needle will be sent to Mama-E for her shop project.

After fruitless searching for a bright

and funky bedspread/comforter for

A1 that we could afford we had an idea.

A bag of fabric scraps were spread out and we're contemplating a very freeform quilt.

Any suggestions, etc from quilters out there

(Karen) will be met with sincere appreciation. The pillow

cases shown are out inspiration for


I frogged back the sweater to begin the decreases again below the bustline. I didn't like the angles created from those I'd done previously. they were too sharp and my chest would have looked pointy. Small, but pointy. Bonny loves frogged yarn!

What's with the orphaned needle thing at Mama-E's?

Quilt suggestions...Sew the pieces in rows. You can make the length of each piece whatever you want, but the width should be the same for all the pieces in the row. Sew the rows together. Then I think I'll have to come down and help you though the next step.

Is it just me, or does Scabby look less scabby in the photo than he does in person? You must have gotten his good side!

I just read Friday's post. OMG, that's too exciting!!! I'm thrilled for you and will keep every single thing crossed to make sure you get the job. And, starting gifts for next Christmas. I'm going to as well. I just haven't decided what and am getting no help from the giftees.

And, since I forgot to talk about this post (God help me), I want to send something to Mama-E, but she also wants maybe a little note and I'm sorta stuck on that part. Also, on the quilting, no help, but I do love the colors. I have kitty help on my knitting and spinning as well.

Hello neighbor...not so close to each other any
Do you remember the quilt I made for Nathan? It was just a basic I/Eye Spy quilt. Here is a link to one that I found on the internet. ( I'm still looking for my magazine so I can send you that one. Like was stated in another comment, keep the widths the same. Figure out how wide you want it, and if you need to add more to the sides you can. Same for the length. Make it is as basic as you can, strips or squares. If you can sew together one long line for the length, then offset the seams as you sew the width, no one will ever be the wiser of the relationship that doesn't really exist between you and your sewing machine ;-)
I'll email you what I find in my magazine. Good luck...I'm still working on my 2nd & 3rd quilting projects, but don't feel too bad when I read in others blogs that some have taken years to complete also :)
Miss ya!
