Island Batik

This is a new spring collection from Island Batik.

It's called Fishing Hole Pond.

I love the patterns printed on these fabrics.
And this is what I'm doing with it!

  Happy Quilting!

On the road again

It's been a little quiet on my blog for the last couple of weeks.  This is partly the reason why.

Yep, I was traveling with my hubby.  We made a trip to the beautiful state of New Jersey. It's amazing to me how parts of the USA can be so diverse and so the same. We passed by Washington DC, being captured up in a wave of traffic when we missed our exit. Whew, that just added to the adventure. We pulled over, looked at the map and realized we were sitting right outside of Arlington National Cemetery. We passed the Pentagon, the Washington monument and I think the Jefferson memorial too. It was all a bit of a haze as we were trying to maneuver around the mad traffic, looking at maps, GPS and of course road work.

Then when we arrived home we discovered that our internet was down. So today I am trying sometime new. Posting from my laptop and the picture from my phone.  Woo-hoo, I might yet make it into the computer age.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be back online soon.  But until then,

Happy Quilting!

Are you a bag lady?

What kind of bags do you like?

Do you have a special pattern you prefer?

I can do pretty well making totes, but working with zippers can be a little challenging for me.

So tell me, are you a bag lady?  Share which patterns you like the best.

Bread for the Journey

Blessed is the man who listens to me,
watching daily at my gates,
waiting at my doorposts.
For he who finds me finds life,
and obtains favor from the Lord.

Mellow Yellow

And this is where the stars have settled.

Isn't it fun to make a sunshine quilt :-)

Happy Quilting!

A room with a view

I've been doing some rearranging in my sewing room.

Added a comfy chair to do hand stitching.

But mostly, I like this.

Since moving my machine over by the window, I'm enjoying the sunshine and the view.

Happy Quilting!
