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.

Time Flies!

Wow I can't believe more than a month has gone by since my last post. I really can't say I have been as busy as a bee, but I have been working on projects for the Busy Bee Quilters Quilt Show in July. I am so excited! I have 4 quilts to enter and one Challenge Quilt.

Now I have a story...

Last weekend I took a road trip.
You all know what that means...
Private little Shop Hop - tee hee.

I hit Hwy 2 from Everett to Spokane - over the river and through the woods to Quilters Heaven in Leavenworth, then over the rolling hills of vineyards and orchards to the Attic Window in Wenatchee. And a little side step through vast fields of waiving grains to visit a friend in Odessa on the golf course. Unfortunate for me I don't golf and did not visit the Quilt Shop. Maybe next time. Had a great time relaxing though.

Then back out to Hwy 2 I go and when I hit Reardon I just had to stop at the famous Buggy Barn (again)! Those ladies out there have way more energy than any one I know. What a great little place.

And of course, if you know me at all, you know I had to add to my stash!

Well here's the kicker...I took pictures...but left my camera in Spokane at my nieces house. So I have to wait to put up photos (again).

And on that camera are pics of the quilts I am entering in the show...


I took a photo on my phone - and here is a peak at my challenge quilt

The Challenge - Spider Web
Inspiration - Photo of Web Tagging in Trends Spring Summer 2011 issue.
(Remember all those colorful strips? this is what I did with those strips)

Now what's next?
