Oh, happy day! I had two finishes this past week and I am happy dancing all over the place! My first finish was the Grungy Windows quilt. I won't be showing pictures of that today; I'll write all about it in a Friday Finish post later this week. But, as requested, I did have the… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 1-26-16 | The Backgammon Bag
Happy Tuesday! Another week has come and gone, and there was progress made in the ticking away of time. Love that! Grungy Windows isn't completely quilted yet. It is taking a bit longer than I expected. Some of that is due to other things coming up last week that kept me from getting into the… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 1-19-16 | Still Quilting on Grungy Windows

2016 is here and I. Am. Ready! I have been having a blast making plans with my Quilter's Planner and figuring out how and when to accomplish my sewing goals for this year. I filled out the Projects At-A-Glance page with all of my intended projects for the year. With the exception of June and… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 1-5-16 | Happy New Year!
Good morning!! I didn't finish my quilt backing this past week, but I did make it a little bigger. I have about another third to add to the bottom portion and then I'm done. In that bottom third I'm adding a row of the grunge disappearing 9-patch blocks all bordered in Kona snow. I think… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 10-13-15 | Quilt Backing Progress
Some progress was made in the sewing room this weekend! Woo to the Hoo!! There was some beautiful Kona Snow sitting on my cutting table that needed to be starched, pressed and cut so I could finish my Grungy Windows quilt top. There was a great big pressing board that had stains from previous pressings… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 9-29-15 | Up and At ‘Em!
Hello and a happy new week to you! This past weekend I made myself get into my sewing room and clean and oil my machines. They've been in a warm room, in a dry climate, for the majority of the summer, so I knew they'd need some oiling before using them. That got me in… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 8-24-15 | Slowly Coming Around
This last week has been a very productive week for me! I finished the Aurifil 2013 Designer of the month quilt top. All of the fabric in this quilt top was left over from a Fat Quarter Shop's Among The Stars BOM subscription. Every month they shipped fabric to complete two blocks. They shipped so… Continue reading To Do Tuesday 7-7-15 | Finished Quilt top and a Tutorial
I wrote a quilt tutorial! I am sewwww excited!! I was having such fun making my Grungy Windows quilt that I decided to write it up. I really love Grunge fabric. The colors are so saturated. They're bold, and bright, and a whole lot of fun. I put them together in a quick and easy… Continue reading Grungy Windows | A Quick Quilt Tutorial
Happy Tuesday!! How has your week been? Your weather? It's been H.O.T. around here. Normally we keep the a/c set at 79 degrees at home in Arizona. Here? That baby is set at 76 degrees! All that tells you is that I'm a total wimp when it comes to humidity. There really is something to… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 6-30-15 | Quilty Progress
