Well goodness, it is already late afternoon as I post this. 
Started the day at an AMVETS fundraiser breakfast this morning with a group of friends, what fun, did the grocery store thing, got home and started a pot of Chili, did a load of wash, finished my book and then decided I had better upload the pics from the camera about 1pm. That is where it stopped. Nothing would upload and after several tries, lots of googling and a very big dose of frustration, figured out the port on the computer was bad. Good thing I have several!

Yesterday was our Guild's "Quilt til You Wilt". The turnout was a little low but we had good food, fun and got lots done.
Here is my project:
The pattern is from Becky Wright, The Civil War Quilter. It is "Jacob's Cot Quilt" although I changed the layout. I love the pattern and already have another one started with RJR's Lovely line that has purple pansies. I'll show you that next week.

Some of the others are hard at work also:

I just realized, I did not take many pictures, missed many people. Some of them would tell me that that was okay. lol

Other projects the last 2 weeks included:
Picking out my fabrics for Bonnie Hunter's mystery "Celtic Solstice" always a challenge for me. I did the last 2 in brights and wanted this one for my house so dragged out the Thimbleberries tote.

Ten setting blocks made for JUQ Mystery on Facebook.

I smell the cornbread so it is time to feed us. Mmmmmm chili and cornbread, just right for this cold, dreary day.

Make sure you check out all of the wonderful "stashbusters" at Patchwork Times.

As Always,



  1. I love your colors for the Celtic Solstice! I'm still trying to figure out what colors I'm going to use. The gingerbread men are cute.

  2. I'm thinking they will work and certainly be useable in my house.
    That gal did all sorts of embellishment on them also.

  3. I like your "Jacob's Cot Quilt." Looks like a fun and fast quilt. Also, your guild sewing day looked like fun. It will be so much fun to see your Celtic Solstice made with Thimbleberry fabric. Are you going to sew on a vintage machine?
