  • Re: Empty Nest

    Prayer and action seem to be the best solutions for me. If I sit too long, I think too much. I quilt, read (a lot), help others, work a little harder at taking care of myself. It also helps to find someone to talk to

  • The correct needle

    I have finally gotten my quilt on the quilt frame. A couple of things I question. I am having trouble finding the right needle. I have tried a couple. The fine needles bend too much and the thicker one doesn't bend, but has too big an eye to suit me. I know someone suggest both betweens & (of course) quilting needles. If I can't find either

  • Re: Calendar Quilt ideas needed

    I haven't seen the calendar quilt, so not sure how it is organized. But, if I were to do one, I would embroidery a circle around each important date

  • More Work in Progress.....

    I finally finished piecing my quilt top, pinned the batting to the top and cut out the backing. I decided to hand quilt since I already had a nice frame that hubby got me for Christmas several years ago. Got top/batting and backing on their rolls on the frame. Started quilting and am still on the first center flower. I do find the quilting peaceful

    My prayers are with the people going through the aftermath of the horrendous earthqake that hit Japan and the follow up tsunami.
