We are travelling to see FIL and his wife in Arkansas. Two days driving to get here and I am stiff! I am visiting quilt blogs to see what everyone is working on, but I am not quilting. I did bring some cross stitch to work on.
See you on the road...

Do you think he's telling me something?

I think he's trying to tell me I need to cook more. LOL

Man is this a great set of cookware or what? I had asked for the small set (7 pieces) but thought it would be a long time since it was so expensive. But Ray said William-Sonoma had a super duper sale last week and he was able to get the 15 piece set for just a little bit more than the smaller set. Needless to say I was very pleased.
I cooked today's dinner with them and they are great. NOTHING stuck, and they cleaned so easily. I will be boxing my Revere cookware and giving it away tomorrow! LOL

Did she know?

Mary Did you Know is probably one of my very favorite songs. I love how it is a simple song with thoughtful questions. I wonder if Mary really did fully understand. I hear this song and I think of all the small things a mother and child do each day and realize she was singing to the Savior. As she splashed Him in the bath, she was making the Savior laugh. As she rocked Him to sleep at night, she was comforting the One who comforts us. As she looked into His eyes as all mothers do and wonder what they will do and be when they grow up, did she know?

it's beginning to smell like Christmas...

Well at least it smells like cookies. LOL This is a picture I nabbed off Google just to represent my cookies. I set my camera down and didn't turn it off and the battery died. :(

I also made some snickerdoodles and they turned out really good.Once again, not my picture, but it looks just like my cookies! LOL

I have to run to the store...I do this every year, I forget to buy essentials like shampoo and toothpaste until the stores are super crowded with shoppers. You would think I would learn.

It's beginning to feel a bit like Christmas

Isn't this beautiful? I saw this on Google Images and really liked it and thought I would share it.

I have been a bit down lately (since Thanksgiving) without my older two children around. This was the very first year in 25 years that I have not had my kids with me. Today I got a very pleasant surprise. My oldest son called me very early (for him) around 8am(7am his time) to tell me he was on his way to come see us! I was so excited! At 5:30pm he arrived and we have had such a great evening.

Tomorrow we will run to the store to pick up a few items to cook. I had not planned on cooking a big Christmas meal since it was going to be just the three of us and we were leaving the next day to head to Arkansas to see Ray's dad. We didn't need leftovers. But now I am cooking a medium size meal. We are still going to Arkansas, but Alan will go with us!

This really is a great Christmas present for me.

All day I have been flitting around getting the spare bedroom ready. We had been using that room as a sort of holding area for things we had not put up yet and we didn't have a mattress on the bed. We got rid of the old mattresses since they had been around the whole time my children lived at home. They were tired (the mattresses not the kids) and needed to go away.

I wish my daughter was here, but I am happy my son is.

I have been feeling very disjointed lately. So much so that I can't even stay focused in the sewing room. I start one thing and it takes me over 5 hours to make one lousy block and it isn't a hard block!

I have been doing a lot of blog surfing trying to get my head together and after seeing oh so many wonderful sights I landed on Keryn's blog. My oh my was I inspired. I love going to her place and her sister's as they have quilts I could just cuddle in and go to sleep. (sleep is hard to come by at the moment)

I saw the album block she was making and loved it. I have always liked album block but avoided them because I thought they were too fiddly with all the triangles. Well she broke it down and I was able to stay focused and TA DA!!

It wasn't hard at all and I had so much fun! I guess I needed to have my hand held, Thanks Keryn!

I had so much fun and I like the block so well I cut enough to make a QOV top. You know you have a LARGE stash of 2.5" strips when you can cut 24 blocks from it and not make a dent.

Tonight is another no sleep night so I will be doing more blog surfing. You never know what you will find in this vast blog world!

Stash thoughts...

(These are all old pictures from previous posts)
I have been thinking a lot lately about Judy's post about stash busting in 2009. I have stated here before (multiple times how I have a huge stash and was embarrassed by my gluttony. I love almost every piece in my stash, especially now that I culled it so much before the move and some since the move.

I have been thinking about what I really want to do with my fabric. Do I want to keep it and pet it and refold it occasionally? Do I want to use it up so I can buy more? Do I want to reduce my stash just for the sake of reducing it? To all of the questions above I think the answer is no.

I think what I really want to do this year is work on UFOs, use some of the patterns I have loved but never even opened, and actually quilt a few of the tops I have setting in a pile. If you know me or have read much of my blog you know my mantra is "when it's a top it's finished". I want to have a quilt, a nice quilt for each of my children.

During the culling of my quilt room I have started asking myself "Am I really going to use this?" I have been being brutally honest and have been able to relieve myself of quite a bit. I need to do the same with my patterns and books. I do have a huge amount, but with having a business until last Spring I have many patterns that I carried in my store, but that I have no desire to make, or I have multiple copies of books and patterns that I love but only need one copy. I think after the new year I will be putting some for sale.

ScrappyQuilter when she said she wouldn't print another pattern off the Internet until she used at least two from her binders. I AGREE!! I have multiple binders of patterns I have printed and pictures of quilts or color combinations I like. I need to use these! It is such a great resource that I have not used to the fullest.

I have thread, quite a bit of thread. Again, I had it in my business so I have a very large drawer full of applique, piecing, embroidery, and some quilting. With me being a top maker most of it just sits there looking pretty. I need to use it or sell it. I haven't even brought up the hand dyed fabric I have! LOL I have TONS of that. A conservative estimate would be 200 yards. YIKES!

Ok, enough thinking and typing, I need to get to sewing!


Not very productive...

This is all I have to show for over 5 hours of sewing. How depressing. The block on the right is what you get when you don't pay attention to the directions. It is usable, but not right for the block I intended to make. Oh well it will go into my leftover block box and one day it will be used in something.

After I had been in my sewing room for quite a while I realized my back was hurting (bad) again. I have had a lot of trouble with it since the move. I called my son into the room to help me raise the table a bit, maybe that will help.

I even made me some risers for my feet and my gas pedal. I hope this helps.

All good things must come to an end...

and boy I am here to tell you this retreat was a good thing. I relaxed, laughed, ate, hooted, hollered, and sewed (a bit). I had so much fun I forgot to take very many pictures, but I did manage a few.
This first picture is wonderful Australian fabric from my Aussie friend Suzanne. The piece across the top is one she dyed herself. The others have all things Australian, such as boomerangs, cockatoos, Aboriginal cave art, kangaroos and more. She is so giving! She spent a lot of the weekend showing many of us techniques we didn't know such as machine embroidery, free motion quilting, hand embroidery. She is a great teacher and friend.
Remember when I was writing about have way too much fabric and being almost embarrassed by it? Well I reminded myself of it when we visited Lacy's Quilt Studio in Loxley, Alabama. She always stays open late one night so we can go shop. This year she gave EVERYONE at the retreat a gift card! There was 35 women in attendance and she gave one $50 card, one $25 card, two $10 and the rest were $5 that we drew out of a basket. Can you believe that? That is another very generous person in our guild. One year she cut two whole bolts of Hoffman Batik into fat quarters and passed them out at a Christmas luncheon. She is amazing.
Anyway as I was saying before I got sidetracked. I remembered I had too much fabric and really didn't need anymore, but I can always use a book and maybe even a DVD to teach me more from the book, so I got the Mastering Precision Piecing book and DVD. I have read some and saw part of the DVD and believe it is going to be very helpful.
After I checked out and was waiting for all of my car mates to be checked out I saw the Triangulations CD and have wanted for along time so I got back in line. LOL
One more thing about the trip to Lacy's; she had ladies waiting at least ten deep to be checked out and at least that many waiting to be cut by her two employees and not one person felt rushed or not important. Everyone was treated very patiently and like they were the only one in the store. That was some of the best customer service I have received in a very long time.
After emptying our checking accounts and loading up on goodies we went back to the retreat facility and got back to more fun. The ladies who put it on allow for selling any of your no longer needed items. I decided I didn't want to sell anything, I didn't want to deal with it, so I just put all of my stuff on the free table. I went with three very large boxes of patterns, fabric and stuff. I was so happy to see it going to good use.
Then I shopped. Most of the magazines and books below were free.

The picture below is of the T-shirt we got this year, we get one every year, and the five wonky stars are some that I made using Bonnie's maverick star pattern from Quiltville. One of the ladies in the retreat made some "slushies" and the stars were labeled the "one too many slushies stars". The slushies were good, but I was told after a couple of bites they were "grown up" slushies so I stopped. I did think about them several more times over the weekend though LOL.

This picture is of my sewing area just to prove to my husband I did sew a little bit. LOL But he knows me. He knows I would much rather visit that sew. I can sew at home when I am alone, but I can't see my friends anymore anytime I want.

The following are a few quilts that were completed or worked on at the retreat and I really liked them.

This is called oriental boxes I think. It is really nice.

One block wonder.
Courthouse steps...
Table runner ...
I was sad the retreat ended, but I was happy to get home. I missed my guys.

I got a new computer!

I have been using a laptop that was my oldest son's when he was in college. It is eight years old and has been through three teenagers and me, so you can guess it is not in the best shape. It has a trojan virus on it that we have tried to remove but it is stubborn.

My husband was going to surprise me with this for Christmas but during a stressful day he accidentally let it slip. It arrived today and he brought it home at lunch. I am so excited.

The picture above is not exactly mine, it is similar though. Mine is an XPS 1530 and it is PINK! That is as much as I know. I am so not a computer geek. If it runs and the keyboard has all it's keys (mine didn't) I am pleased. LOL
After I get through setting up the computer and putting the retreat pictures on here I will post about the retreat and all the fun we had.

Retreat here I come!

I am so excited, I picked up my rental car and I leave first thing in the morning. I have figured out what projects I am taking.
Taking the maverick stars, strippy/scrappy/trash/treasure project and the table cloth. Leaving the wonky log cabins, sister choice (because it is a top!) and the hand work. After thinking about it I know I won't do any hand work.
I am taking my camera so I will have lots of pictures (I hope) when I get back.

Later gator,

I'm not taking this project!

I woke up this morning and decided I would make a decision about what to take to the retreat. I grabbed the sister's choice blocks and laid them out to see what was needed to finish it. Can you believe I only needed 3 more blocks and borders to have a top? Without thinking about it I sat down and started sewing. I was fortunate to have left everything together and was able to just sit and sew without any thinking. I got the two blocks made and loved it! I decided then I would put the rows together to see how I like it. Then without much thought I grabbed a couple of fabrics for borders and tried them out on my youngest son. We both agreed the orange and blue looked good with the blocks so I quickly cut strips and added them.
TA DA!!!

The top is too big to get the whole thing in the picture so I just got the corner. What do you think? I really like it.

Rambling thoughts

I'm warning you, I am on sinus meds and I'm not thinking straight.

Do you have a stash? If you do, do you know how much is in it? I don't mean "lots" or "too much" I mean really know how much is there. Having just moved and touched every single piece of fabric you would think I would know but I only have an estimate. When I folded all of my fabric getting ready for the move I did take estimated amounts and added them up. I took the size of the ruler I used to fold it on and multiplied it by how many wraps it took that is a pretty good idea of the length. I do know, if my husband knew how much money was represented in there he would pass smooth out!

To be honest I have not purchased much fabric in the past year. I have known for over a year I would be moving and I had great friends who would remind me if I bought it I would have to pack and move it, so I tried to be good. I also know for the past 2 years I have volunteered at a quilt shop. At first I wouldn't take money or fabric as payment as I really did it all for selfish reasons; I wanted the shop to succeed so I could have a local quilt shop. After a while the owner kind of relied on me being there and it became more work than pleasure so then I started getting paid in fabric. I have LOTS of fabric from that. I can tell you exactly which fabric I got from the shop because it is not my style. LOL I am such a civil war repro gal that Amy Butler and Kaffe just made me uncomfortable, but they kind of grew on me.

So after 18 years of quilting and 14 years of dyeing fabric and 2 years of working in a quilt store I have what I consider a very large stash. Some would consider it a HUGE stash. I have not added to it much in the past year, and I plan on doing the same this year. How many shops have gone under because I haven't shopped much and how many more will close if I continue in this direction? LOL

I remember when I first started quilting in the early 90's, reading about "quilt artist" and their "studios" and that they had to have a stash and a large one at that so they would always have what they needed without having to run to the quilt shop, besides quilt shops aren't open at 2am.
(whew what a sentence)

I bought into that thinking for a while and bought fabric, any fabric. I bought for in case I might need it at 2am. I bought because I lived 2 hours from the nearest quilt shop and it was not feasible to go to the quilt shop at the drop of a hat.

I was not alone in that kind of shopping. LOTS of quilters had this same idea. I think for several years quilters were in a buying frenzy. Shop owners fed this frenzy by always reminding us "If you see it you better buy it because it won't be here when you come back next time." We had to buy it then, we didn't want to miss out! I think that explains some of the "what was I thinking" fabrics.

I think I need a nap...I'll finish these thoughts later

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions...

I can't quite make up my mind on what to take to work on at the retreat next weekend.
Moving and having to sort my whole sewing room caused me to see all of the projects I have started but never quite finished. I have said before I am A.D.D. and I wasn't just being silly, I really am. I get distracted EASILY, and if I put something away it is as if it never exsisted. So pulled out a few things that I really would like to finish.

At last years retreat I worked on this and LOVED it, but put it away and promptly forgot about it. This is going to be what I call Wonky Log Cabins. One of the reasons I put this away was as I was at the retreat I was dealing with many stressful issues and it showed in my sewing. I am ADD with perfectionistic tendencies. If it is suppose to lay flat and be square that is what I want. If the points are suppose to be pointy I want that too. This was not coming out how I wanted so it was not hard to put it away.

I started this for my daughter. As a child we called her "Sister" and since this is Sister's Choice I thought this would be perfect. But I started this when I was trying to come to grips with her leaving home on some not so good terms. She made bad choices and is having to live with the consiquenses of these choices. Honestly I thought I was doing a good thing until a friend explained to me I could not give her this quilt. I could make it and keep it myself, but I couldn't give it to my daughter. It would just be salt in a raw wound. So I put it away to be forgotten. I agree with the friend but would like to make it now and maybe one day, if she sees it and wants it she can have it but without the drama of the name and my reason for making it. It did help me through some of the hard times, and isn't that one of the reasons we make quilts. I know is is one of my main reasons.

I have no idea where this came from but it could possibly be something I brought home from a Linus group meeting, intending to put borders on and quilt it. As you can see I must have set it aside, because I haven't touched it and can't even remember bringing it home. BTW, I like the green on the bottom better than on the left so I will put a border of that on it and then see what else I can do. Any suggestions?

I found this on Keryn's blog from November 11th. I fell in love with it! I have HUGE strip tubs and so I thought this would be perfect. This one I KNOW I am taking to work on.

This is strip/scrap/trash/treasure type project. You take all of your leftovers and sew them together until you have the size you need. Any and everything goes. This is mindless sewing so this is another one that is going. I can work on this when I don't want to concentrate just chatter and sew.

This is the Maverick stars from Bonnie's website. I have been wondering about it for a while so I threw some stuff together incase. I wonder if I would actually get anything accomplished on this.

This has been in this box since Paducah LAST YEAR! I am so bad! I worked on this in the evenings while trying to recouperate from a long day of shopping. Then I got home and set it aside and you know the rest of the story.

This is the unfinished mystery from Bonnie's first mystery. I was all gung ho, then got to the last step where it was revealed and couldn't make myself finish. It was too much for me. It was too busy to show all the work put into each block. So it has been setting in a box stewing. Once I took it and some friends helped me figure out some settings, but I didn't put the stuff up correctly and lost the paper I wrote it on. Maybe Linda G. will help me again??

Here are my houses... they need lots of work.

And what if I want to do some handwork? This has been setting aside so long it had been (unknowingly) in the scrap bin. I unfolded it and was so excited! I knew I had started this, but forgot where I put it.

If I want to do handwork, will I want to quilt this? This is a small quilt, something like 16"x22" or there about. So it wouldn't take long...maybe...I am slow.

Day after/Week before

Did you have a good Thanksgiving?
I did.
We had a very quiet day. I had no meal planned so when I got hungry I went to the pantry to see what I could see. I rustled up some Baked Potato Soup that was delicious. Then I made some Pumpkin Gingerbread; I got the recipe from Judy's blog. This was the second time I made it and it is great.

Last night after the kitchen was cleaned I went into my sewing room and started gathering my thoughts for the retreat I am going to next weekend.
I am really looking forward to this retreat. I will drive back to Alabama Thursday and see my kids then have fun with my quilt guild over the weekend. Then I hope to get to see my kids again before I leave Monday or Tuesday. Of course I am sure they think I am silly wanting to see them twice in 4 days after I have only been gone a month. But I sure do miss them.

I got a call from my nephew yesterday evening as he was driving over to In-Law's to be house for for his first of a lifetime's shared Thanksgiving days. He is such a sweet hearted, kind caring boy (man). He said he called just to say he loved me and wanted to wish me a happy Thanksgiving. Needless to say I was proud he thought of calling when I know how he could easily have been too busy.

I'll show what i am planning for my retreat in a bit...

Is it because I am older?

My husband has always (when possible) taken the week of Thanksgiving as vacation. Normally we are preparing for our trip to Houston to spend with family, but this year we are not. The move to Florida and the 17 hour drive to Houston makes it just not feasible this year. Needless to say I am sad.

Yesterday my guys decided we needed to go to Walt Disney World. It is about a 90 mile drive from my driveway to Mickey's so off we go. I love the Magic Kingdom, I always have. It is one of my favorite places of all the places we have ever been. Yesterday we went to the Animal Kingdom for the first time. I was so disappointed. Don't misunderstand me, it is a good place and has lots of animals and it has beautiful stuff to see, but... I feel that the people who are in charge of the "vision" part of designing the Disney parks don't have the vision that Walt had. Walt Disney always wanted grand, great, fun, exciting, special place for us to visit.

Except for the ride in "Asia" which was really fun, there just was no magic. It felt like I was in a zoo. I am not saying it was a bad place, just I was expecting more I think. We left there after about 2 hours and drove over to Epcot. It was the last place Walt had a hand in designing. We loved it. Then we headed over to the Magic Kingdom and I once again felt like a child. All the flowers, decorations for Christmas, Christmas music, the lit up castle, made me giggle. There was Chip and Dale, and Pluto playing with everyone and taking pictures with visitors. We rode the train around the park which we have not done since our children were babies. I saw things I had not seen in so long I had forgotten about them, so I was excited all over again.

I think that may be the problem with the new Animal Kingdom. Everywhere I look in MK there is something to see, around every corner is something. At the AK there was just more bushes and bamboo.

Maybe I am just getting old and grumpy, you know I am 45!

Off to have lunch with my man!

Honest opinion needed...

I made this for my friend Linda's daughter years ago, but decided I didn't like it and put it in a bag and promptly forgot about it. Today as I was cleaning and organizing in my sewing room I came across it again. I asked my son who was the only one home, and he said "it's ok". Not exactly what I wanted. I need a clear answer. Does this deserve to be quilted for a loved one or do I donate it?
I wonder if the reason I don't care for it is because I really don't care for purple. I mean purple is a nice color, and it is pretty and all, but this has so much of it.
I don't know, I am at a loss.

Any thoughts?

Serious A.D.D. around here!

I want to do some sewing but just can't seem to stay focused! I have looked through books, folders, patterns and magazines. If I find one I like I look over at my fabric that is still not exactly accessible I whine a bit and look at a different pattern, like that is magically going to make my fabric easier to get to.

I found the houses I started working on way back when I first started house hunting. But looking at them brought back all the memories of the anxiety I had at the time I quickly put those down.

I saw my hand piecing project that I have been working on FOREVER and thought I might just zip some through the machine. Then I thought better of it and decided I would be happier if I finished the way I started it. I remember my SIL Paula having the same discussion with herself (and us) a while back...I think I told her to sew it on the machine, but I can't make myself do it. I am so weak!
About six months ago I was given this panel (bad picture huh?) to make a bit larger for the Linus group. As you can plainly see I still have the panel in the original condition, but I have picked some fabric and even cut some strips. Now to remember what I was going to do with these strips! LOL I think I was going to make churn dash blocks, but I didn't have the brain cells to figure it out so I set that aside too.

Now just so you don't think today was a total loss I did get some piecing done. I got some of the "feathers" on one side of a block. The only problem was, on a day like today, with my brain as wacky as it is, I have no business working on anything that has to fit, so I stopped after one since I felt very lucky this one came out as good as it did with only having to rip three seams.

By the way, I went over to the outlet mall and found some cute shoes. I thought about what I would wear to the dinner and decided, I have some new black pants, I will look for a nice shirt and see if the shoes will work and I will have a new outfit with less stress. YES!
Oh and I alsmot forgot, Ray got home before me and when I got home he had started dinner. Sure it was reheating leftovers, but hey this is SO not normal. Oh and he also made a pan of cornbread. I think I am still in shock!

Not excitement, just plugging along

There is definitely not much excitement going on around here, but that is a good thing. I can handle only so much excitement and then I go into hermit mode. Honestly I have had enough to last me several months. I am ready for some calm, cool and collected days.
Ray is taking all of next week off as vacation, which is great, he has about 3 weeks he has to try and get used up before the end of the year. I love it when he is home, but I am here to tell you as much as we enjoy each others company after about 3 days I am ready to knock myself in the head if we don't have a plan. Ray's idea of relaxing is sitting in his recliner, remote in his hand, television on some sci-fi channel and me or Joseph bringing him everything. He only gets up for "necessary" things (if you know what I mean).
Now I am the first one to say Ray works hard and long hours and deserves to rest and relax. I don't mind waiting on him, as a matter of fact I love it; to a point. Then like fish after three days it starts to stink! So my plan is to have a plan. But those of you who know me know me and plans are not too good of friends, so this always makes it difficult. We will see how I do.

Ray came home last night and told me we have a company Christmas party to attend in about two weeks. I am at a total loss. I have needed a new dress and shoes for a while. Well need is a bit of a stretch, I have several dresses that are nice, I wear them to church, but you know what I mean. Anyway after the last dinner with the bosses and wives I would like to not look like the country bumpkin come to town.

Home again, home again, jiggity jig

I'm back home in Florida. We had to make a fast trip to Alabama to take a tree off of the fence we had just installed. UGH! The fence wasn't too badly damaged so Ray and Joseph was able to get things back right again pretty quickly. They also did some minor fix ups to the house that at first they thought they wouldn't do, but after thinking about it they changed a fan motor in the master bathroom exhaust fan and a couple other things.

It was so nice that Joseph was there to help because that meant I got to go play at the LQS that is closing it's doors at the end of the month. The owner and I have worked together for more than two years and she is ready for the store to close so she can move on and I am so sad. Funny how that is. I got some of my samples off the walls and brought them home, so you will be seeing pictures of them soon I hope as I work to get them quilted. I also bought my first piece of Minkie. I made a quilt top years ago as a sample for a class I taught. Joseph loves that top and claimed it as his own so I bought a chocolate brown Minkie to back it. He thinks it is wonderful and I can't wait to get it finished now.

Uh Oh, Ray just called and is on his way home for lunch so I need to go fix him something. I will be back later with pictures...

Getting cozy...and busy

In my new sewing room I have set myself up a pretty comfy cutting area. It is right next to a window so I get great light most of the day. I set my old step up stool for when I am cutting for extended length of time, and it works great. I have my radio setting behind me so I can listen to my music or books and don't have to be scared of cutting my iPod earphone cord.
Can you see I have been busy cutting? That is 1.5" and 2" strips of all my Civil War reproductions. I haven't even made a dent in them since at the last count I had over 300 different fat quarters and I have added to that since then. I did finally convince myself to finish using the last bit of my oldest CW fabrics. I remember about 13 years ago my husband bought be a stack of FQs from Benartex for my birthday. I have used those FQs very lovingly and selfishly. I am now down to the last inch or two of most of them and a bit sad to see them done, but surprised at how much use you can get out of a small cut of fabric.

Last year at International Quilt Festival in Houston I had my booth on one row and on the row behind me was John Flynn and his family. For four days I could hear them over there showing their quilt frame and patterns and kits. For days I would take the long way to the restroom so I could look at their booth and all their beautiful quilts. Finally I could stand it no more! On Saturday evening, when I was suppose to be running to the ladies room I ran over to their booth, handed Brooke my credit card and told her to bag me up a kit and a template set, and when I came back I would sign the cc slip and pick it up.
This is the project I started this afternoon. I LOVE it! Besides it being CW fabrics and a Feathered Star pattern which I have wanted to make for a long time, it is also LASER CUT! It is so easy to put together. Just what I need, easy. Thanks Flynn family!

Aren't these going to be so cute?
