Frozen Pie!



We were pretty much froze solid the past few days - here is the view.

Catching up on the blog...I made some pie potholders over Christmas on mom's old singer. It runs so well and is simple and straightforward without any bells and whistles. Love it! And the pies turned out so cute! I am finally getting around to sharing them.

Happy Quilting to all!

Happy New Year for 2018!

Happy New Year & Happy Blogiversary to me!
WOW! This blog is 9 years old this month. Time flies.

Below is Di's Bally Hall quilt (hanging in Houston - guest photo).
The quilt is one of the casses I took in in November. At that time I 
learned  hand paper piecing of hexis and pentagons. Not sure how
I have been quilting all these years an d never learned this technique,
but it is captivating! I have made hundreds of paper pieces since that
time for this quilt and for the beautiful Giggleswick Mills quilt, another
class taken while at Sentimental Stitches quilt retreat in Shipshwana,
Indiana.

I have made much progress on this quilt at the retreat and since then. 
On a personal note, I am feeling good about the career opportunities
and spring 2018 work plans. Mainly balance is my goal for work and
for personal and crafty endeavors!
