The sewing cabinet redo
For many years, I have been sewing with my Pfaff (or other machines before the Pfaff) on top of my vintage Singer sewing cabinet (with the Singer inside).  I have a piece of thin plywood covering the hole that the machine folds out of, and the fold-out leaf...

scrappy swoon quilt top
I finished my scrappy Swoon top, and it measures right about 86'', which is what I was aiming for.  Now to piece the backing and get it basted!  My mom is feeling better, so I might get that done later this week :)

not bleached white, not snow
I got my yardage of ''Snow'' I ordered, and it's NOT the right solid either!  Left is ''Snow'', right is ''Bleached White'', and the block in the middle is made with the mystery solid.....  BUT, I think I figured out what the mystery bella color is!  I look...

and a happy New Year
I hope everybody had a great Christmas!  We did here because my oldest son and his girlfriend came to stay for a few days.  It feels good to have them home. I did a little fabric cutting while they slept this morning.  I am probably not going to start sewin...

The holy grail
We finally got our hands on the holy grail   grill.  It's not perfect, but it's been powdercoated, and it's pretty darn good.  I am beyond happy!  I think this grill is about as sexy as they come! Aaaand, we actually HAVE the ''filler'' piece that covers th...

American Jane strip sets
They say that nothing good comes from late-night sewing.  Well, nothing good comes from early morning sewing when you haven't had enough sleep either. ::ahem:: Here is 13 lovely American Jane strip sets.  Only problem is, 5 of them are sewn completely wrong...

Swoon quilt top
Well, my Swoon quilt top is finished.  Almost. It finished at 78'' - so it needs a border added to make it a decent size quilt. This is the backing I chose to use - I have 7+ yards of this (got it SUPER cheap at a fabric store close-out, I think it was like...

Moda Bake Shop - Scrappy Irish Chain
My latest quilt finish is featured over at Moda Bake Shop today!  This is my 10th MBS project!  It is one of my favorite quilts I have made in a while.  I just love postage stamp quilts - and to combine an Irish Chain and a postage stamp - LOVE!   It's a BI...

Snow and White
I worked for a while on my Metro Rings blocks - then after I had them all trimmed up, I looked at the stack and quickly realized I messed up. Ugh.  Apparently, I was first using ''Snow'' as the background fabric - I ran out, then ordered more thinking it wa...

hoping for less rain
We came home from our deer hunting early the day before Thanksgiving because of the weather.  On the east side, it was snow - but when we got home to the west side (the WET side), it was rain.  The day after Thanksgiving, the river flooded.  Luckily, not de...
