About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

It's A Finish!

Here It Is!
My (somewhat) Cropped Cardigan...
Its a Blue Sky pattern....knited from the top down so it was super simple even for me. I used Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino ...slightly less than 8 hanks (purchased at Labor of Love in Romeo with the gift cert from Nancy and Faye). I lengthened the body by about an inch or so....enough to cover my jiggly bits.

Yep...........I'm One Happy Chick!

Just thought I'd share this one again...

This is deffinately one of my favorite quilts. I'm amazed that I finished it, and I'm so happy with the way the quilting turned out (Thank You Nancy Watson!)

Quilt Show Pics

My Quilty Pal Nancy and I went to the quilt show for the Quilt Guild of Metro Detroit yesterday. It was a beautiful, almost hot & sunny day here in Michigan. Inside the show was nice and cool, and we saw some beautiful work done by some very talented people. As usual, my camera crapped-out on me, but I was able to get a few shots of the quilts before it died and I had to switch over to my cell phone camera, which also had issues. Nevertheless, here are some pics:

The above quilt was from a workshop with Flavin Glover.

This little quilt came from a Mickey DePre Workshop.

After the show nancy and I stopped at Culvers in Clinton Township for an Olive Burger. Mmmm, it was SO good chicks. Wish you could have been there to enjoy one with us!

More later......

Post-Headache Progress

After a week-long headache, I found myself awake and feeling almost human this morning....so I blew off the housework that has been neglected, braved some hideous weather that included rain, freezing rain, some snowflakes and hail to drive out to the farm and get some sewing done.
I've been working on a Miss Rosie pattern (and I cannot remember the name of it now) and I'm using my pink and brown fat quarters.
The majority of the top is done:

And now I have somewhere around 280 squares to join together for a border:

I did some bathtub reading this week, and finished ( quickly) this read by Kate Jacobs.
Im still on the library wait list for the sequel of The Friday Night Knit Club, and I hope I get the call soon that a copy is available. I really like this author (and I think you chicks would like this book too!)

I guess that is all for now, Chicks. Talk to you again soon!

A Finish

Actually, I finished this a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is from Batiks and Beyond, and Karen the Quilter machine quilted it. The top has been sitting and waiting to be finished for more than a year now (more of that procrastination that I am known for) and I finally decided it needed to be finished. It's wallhanging sized, and I'm hoping it will hang in my living room.
That's all, chicks!
