This blog is devoted to all things quilted and handmade. I have a new found love affair with quilts. I LOVE the colors, fabrics, designs and love that is sewn into quilts. Along with this new addiction comes a world of wonderfully kind and creative women (with a couple men thrown in for variety...LOL!). Please enjoy your stay here. I hope it will fuel your own creativity...

I took a little break from sewing and I am working on putting glass mosaic on a bowling ball. I am not done yet but I have to put it away for a few days as a couple of my grandkids are coming to visit for the weekend. Can't have all that glass around a 3 and 6 yr old. Shudder! I cut myself twice just moving it around. LOL! I can't wait to start grouting.

I made this pillow cover from a shirt I dearly loved but couldn't part with...a big shirt I would never wear. Now that it is a pillow cover I can use it all the time. the back unbuttons so the pillow comes in and out. I left the pocket in the back to hold my cell phone. LOL! Thanks Jessica for the great idea!!!

These might be my fabric choices for the summer mini quilt swap. I will have to see how they work up. Good thing we have lots of time to play and experiment. LOL!

This is the start of another quilt on my 'to do' list. The pattern for this one is called 'Tobacco Road'. It is all flannels and homespuns. I can't wait to get to work on it...unlike the paper piecing below.

I started this paper piecing project about a year ago. I like the fabrics but I just can't get into quilting this way. Now it has been so long since I started it I have forgotten how to do it and will have to read the instructions and learn all over again. Ugh! It has been haunting me lately...I might have to do it just to get it off my list of projects to finish. I keep telling myself how good it will feel to have it done. I am just not sure if that is enough to motivate me.
