With millions of people around the world hunkered down in social distancing, I expect this will be a fantastic quarter for finishes in the Finish-a-Long. My week at work was crazy busy getting people started on assignments from their homes and trying to come up with some kind of schedule for myself. In between all […]

I started pepper seeds today March 8, with the plan to add tomatoes next weekend.

This is the fourth time I have subscribed to the Bag of the Month Club. It’s a really good deal to get some sweet purse and tote bag patterns. I really love my current purse — the Ring Sling by Mrs. H. February’s pattern was the Layla Essentials Purse by Andrie Designs, a small wallet/purse. […]

I have been sewing a lot, but I feel I need to knuckle down on some UFO’s, so I’m going to try joining up with One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts. My sister and her husband are coming up on their 25th wedding anniversary so I need to finish up the quilt I have […]

Most of the quilting and binding is with Gutermann white, easy, looks good, and will be sturdier than cotton thread. I may do more quilting with Gutermann, it’s easy to […]

No time to talk, must go link up!

So the answer to the question is 6. 10 pounds of beets makes 6 quarts of picked beets. The consumers and golden harvest jars have onions. Each jar has a pinch of peppercorns, mustard seed, and coriander seed. The vinegar mixture is 1.5 c water, 2 cup red wine vinegar, 7 cups white vinegar, 3/4 […]

Well, the only thing I can check off my to-do list from last week is that I have pieces for clues one through three of the mystery quilt cut out and some sewn. Making one-quarter of the pieces is much easier to manage in and around the busy activities. For sizes and piece counts please […]
