Happy October! I am so excited that Fall is here! We actually don't experience too much of a "Fall" season here. No trees full of leaves turning gorgeous shades of red, orange and yellow before falling. No crisp autumn air where you can see your breath in the morning. Nope. It's pretty much just a… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 10-4-16 | Quilting the Alpine Quilt

Actually, he surprised me with telling me what my present was going to be one month early. It arrives on Wednesday. While I'm at work. Wahhhh!! So, what is it? He bought be… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 4-7-15 | A little surprise

We became fast friends after connecting over conversations about the Brother PQ1500S sewing machine. Which we both have and (I think I can safely speak for Sarah when I say), we… Continue reading TGIFF: A Moxie Finish!
When I wrote this title I had an image flash through my head of one of those old-time Revival preachers dancin' around on a stage, hands raised in the air, preachin' with a drawl plus the added emphasis on the last syllable. You know what I mean, right? "It's-ah timmmmmmme-ah to get-ah workin'-ah on-ah our-ah… Continue reading Skill Buildin’ and Vintage Quilt Revival’n
I only have three days left of the year to wrap up my 2013 posts... and it'll take exactly three posts to wrap it up! This post will be about the quilts made for Christmas presents. *note: this is a rather picture heavy post!
