October Quilt Retreat






Hey everyone!!  I just wanted to let you all know that I have 3 openings for my quilt retreat which is going to be Oct.16-18 at Cattail Retreat in Poynette.  It's about 1 1/2 hours from Milwaukee.  It's a beautiful setting and the room that we sew in is bright and filled with windows over looking the pond.  There are only a 3 steps up to the kitchen from the sewing area.  And no steps to get into the sewing area with your machine and "stuff" We provide our meals which is super simple.  I'm planning on dinner one night and one night going out.  If you have any questions let me know.  Something to definitely look forward to after this Coronovirus Safe at Home order.

Heres the link if you want to check it out.  cattailretreat.com

Bring your projects and have a great couple days with some fellow quilters!!

Safer at Home

 Hey everyone!  Long time no see.  I'm not sure if blogging is becoming a thing of the past or not.  But, I do like writing and I do like to share with my friends.  So I would like to start blogging again.  I have an alarm set for every Friday morning to write my blog.  I never turned it off. So I am going to start today.
Just wanted to share a few things. Who's making Facemasks? Who needs some cute simple little projects to whip up?  I'm going to share a few with you today.
I tried making some facemasks yesterday and then last night I found a easier way to make them which I'm going to do today.  The hospital near us is very particular on how they want there facemarks to be made.  Those I found out yesterday are for the "confident" sewer.  Well that's not me.. so I'm going to try and construct my facemasks today from this video.

Another quick and easy project I found was a Jar Opener.  Check it out.  I'm definitely going to make one of these today.  I actually needed one yesterday so this will be perfect.

And here are a few quilting projects I have been working on.  Really getting back into the swing of things.  Family things have settled down and I am back to doing what I enjoy!! 


Finally getting this one done.  It's for our bed.  Sending it off to Albuquerque to have my friend
Terrie quilt it. 

Just some 15 minutes of play blocks. 

A quilt panel with piano key borders I started at retreat
and finished a few weeks ago. 
My Dog Buddy.  Finished this in February for a Challenge.
I had the color Violet and you could use black and white.  I
also had the emotion Silly.
It's what is on my long arm right now.  A Mickey quilt for my grandson.
