Sittin' and Knittin'
Yes, it's knitting report day! And last night's snow in Colorado makes today the perfect day to watch Dr. Who on Netflix and knit. The next deadline for Hats for Sailors is coming up fast -- May 27. I should have a pretty good-sized box of hats to send to o...

Tuesday Tool: A New Bloc_Loc Ruler
I would testify that the Bloc_Loc rulers are the single greatest invention for quilters since the rotary cutter! I bought two new Bloc_Loc rulers at the Springtime in the Rockies show this past weekend. Here is a photo of both of them; today I'll only talk ...

Make It Monday: Wishes
The Sweetwater girls are Colorado natives, and fabric designers whose fabrics I love.  I started the June Jelly Roll Party sample on Friday. And all the blocks are made and on the design wall today! Here is a copy of the pattern cover, lifted from the " mak...

TGIFF: Jelly Roll Friday
I love this quilt! I had so much fun asking for input on the layout, and apparently lots of Ruth's Stitchery customers love it too. It's the first Friday of the month, and that means it's Jelly Roll Party day! Today's quilt has been hanging above the regist...

WIP Wednesday: Crazy for Shelburne
I think I'm pretty safe that the recipient of this quilt doesn't read my blog. This quilt is an Anniversary gift for my brother and his wife of 50 years! My sister-in-law likes "brown and sage green." Well, if you've bought fabric in the last 25 years, you ...

BOM-day
Are you keeping up with your Blocks of the Month? I'm about halfway there for April; fortunately, April is just half over! Ruth's Stitchery , my favorite LQS, hosts an assortment of Block Parties each month. And you know what a sucker I am for Blocks of the...

Sunday is for Scraps Catch-up
I determined I would spend Sundays working only on my Celtic Solstice mystery. Well, this is the first time since January I've worked on it! I have all the blocks sewn together and the first border sewn on. I love the secondary pattern that emerges when the...

Day-After-April Fools Day Joke
Just so you know I'm not making this up, here is a photo of the DH holding a ruler in our 8" of new snow this morning. I know we need the moisture, but this is ridiculous! Here is the "My Year in Temperatures" scarf. It's getting to where you can see the te...

March BOMs Away
For some reason, I've caught the "finish it up" bug! Yippee! I'm putting together some of those BOM quilts for which I've had all the blocks made for ages. Yesterday I finished the 2010 Patchwork Party quilt. It's going to Cornelia on Wednesday to be quilte...
