Quilt tote. I’ve been meaning for a long time to make a carry bag. Toogie gave me the incentive to get it done…today! Here is my bag for carrying donor quilts to the cancer ctr. No more will I be stuffing them into plastic. My bag is a wee bit sm
I just put a new garden flag at my front walk. He is from a set of "drunken roosters" that I have had for years. He was to have white feathers, but I just did the outline. He replaces my "mule xing" flag that was faded. Isn't he cute? I'm havin
Never let me near wet paint! The blue paint smear on the knee of my pants, gave me an idea for saving. Put this hero standing in blue water (paint). Unfirtunately, I was hurried and didn't plan ahead...it is upside down. Lost khaki pants anyway-sob.

Again, 3rd donation to State Police today, but found the office locked tight. I wanted the toys to be available over holiday. 23 bears and 5 bunnies. Will attempt delivery again tomorrow. The troopers must all be out on the interstate and highways.
I wonder if anyone here has an older Babylock Ellageo machine & the Hoop-it-All Quilter's Kit..the attachment that allows quilting with the 12.5 x 13 ''hoop-it-all'' ? I know it has been discontinued..extinct..but I still have my Ellageo and it perf
Stuffies...today I visited our local state police headquarters..no, I'm not in trouble! I donated soft toys I made for the little ones who are scared of the uniforms. I met and talked to the captain..he was most gracious and appreciative. He told me t
Posted one I made for son..said I wanted one that was more girly! Just clipped the threads, lining not in yet...I love it! I've truly gotten my money's worth from the pattern. You'll remember the tan with stripe trim. Very easy project. The legs ma
I was making coffee for an early trip for hubby's chemo 100 mi away. The sky outside my kitchen window grabbed my attn and I took these pix from the deck. The black triangles on the left are bits of my roofs. Unusual sight for me, but pretty. First p
