Welcome to my blog. Fabric has always been a passion of mine! I love looking, touching, feeling, smelling and of course creating with fabric. I was a professional seamstress for 13 years and now sew for relaxation and the pure joy of seeing a finished creation. It is my hope to share my triumphs and temptations with you. Love to all.

Good bye winter... Hello Vacation


Vacation time.... again! Yes it is a weird time of year to take vacation. But if you live in the northern states you understand, anywhere sunny this time of year would be grand!



The Pacific Northwest has had a blast of late winter storms. And I am ready to hit the beach and say goodbye to the cold. So in honor of warmer days I finished a quilt.... No kidding.



And who better to help me show if off but my beautiful grandaughter Aaliyah!

Happy Birthday Tanya

My favorite niece of favorite nieces is 21 today! In honor of such a great birthday to have for such a great young lady who is expecting her 1st BABY! I made her this pillow.




And then my other favorite niece of favorite nieces asked my to teach her how to make one...and her mother in law ordered one from me. Wow and I thought for sure it was someone elses special day.

So...while loading pictures from the birthday I found the last quilt I created on my EQ7 and thought I would share this too. Here's the fabric I used...


Kansas Troubles Butterfly Garden

And this is how is turned out! Very pleased.


I call it A Dreamy Night.

Did I mention how much I love to applique. Just about everyone of my quilts has applique. Not sure how that happens...but it does!

Love to all.
