November 1st (Day 1)

I’ve noticed that Blogher has an event of posting every day for the month of November.  Since my blog has been lacking, I am going to have a go.  My goals for November:

  • blog every day
  • create every day and post some part of it
  • find my voice
  • share
  • make new friends
  • visit other blogs

I created today and it was in my plan. What wasn’t in my plan was that the power went out.  Just as I went into my sewing room, the power left so my plans changed.  It was about 3pm and here in my part of the country, with the time change, it got dark pretty quickly.  I put on my portable OTT light and basted hexagons:


And these were some of my hexies for grandmother’s garden:


I take part in a 1-inch hexagon themed exchange, making 12 for each participant.  I have already filled a jar and have started a second one. Hexagon prepping is mindless and when I am tired, it is nice to do and then have something to show.

Do you hexagon? Are you interested in exchanging? If yes, let me know!

Until tomorrow!

Finally, some time in a creative frame of mind!

Vacation in summer with husband had taken me out of my sewing room. I did make a slew of hexagon flowers while travelling:

IMG_6446Today I worked on my Nature’s Journey and pieced together my centre panel as well as played with my prep pieces.  It sure does take long to prep but now that it is done, some television-watching will be in order:


I’m not sure if any of you are aware of a free digital calendar that Landauer offers. They offer two every month and they are inspirational screensavers.  Here is the one I chose for August:


Well, time to get working on my projects again!

Happy Quilting!

Decisions, decisions ;)



I got the backing for my baby quilt and couldn’t decide…modern to the right or classic to the left? I liked them both.  If I take the modern to the right then I would do the binding in it too. If you want to chime in with your opinion, please do! I think it all comes down to personal preference.


I decided to make the quilt this big with a 1 1/2 inch darker pink border then another 5 inch border and in the 5 inch border I am going to paperpiece the child’s name and a few special words.

I’ve never made a girl’s quilt before!

Making a baby quilt!


I started a baby quilt.  My friend Jen came over and we designed it….the bottom will be shorter and I will be writing the name of the baby on it.  Thanks Jen for kicking me in the butt!

I worked on my 6-word memoir quilt at the same time…chainpiecing:


Two piecing projects on the go ;).

And of course I am always being watched by the attack cats!


Sewing, Reading, Quilting, Embroidery(ing :) ), Running, Writing, Weaving…and the list goes on and on and on…
