String flying geese

I've been trying to use up my scraps for several years trouble is I keep adding to the pile as I go also. However this project used up a good deal of the strings. I'm down to half of a grocery sack now but I have almost a full sack of crumbs. Here is what I got done today.

Finishing up UFO's

I thought I should not do the mystery quilt since I had so many in different steps of progress but I did anyway. I got this weeks steps done and looked around the sewing room was so full of piles here there and everywhere. Each pile was a UFO or unfinished quilt. So I got busy. Orca Bay finished ready to put on the quilt frame. Moms quilt off the frame, it only needed 5 rows quilted, got it trimmed and the binding made and sewn on. I was making a label when my 830 Bernina started acting up. Oh the spoiled thing it was just in the shop. Well I turned the thing off then back on now it is sewing away It looks like I might just get this one done.

Hummingbird table topper

I am having fun making these as I can get one done in a day. I'm working from my stash what fun to stitch out. Sewing on my Bernina 830E makes it easy. I am so lucky to have a husband who understand my passion for sewing and does not mind me doing it. He is my biggest fan.

I won

I won 2nd place last week at Fat Quarter Shop and this is what I got. Love it and would love to start pulling fabrics but a water line break has put a halt to everything. See the blackberries one day picking.


I was cleaning around a dead tree stump left over from an ice storm several years ago and moved a piece of bark. Inside was mama lizard and her eggs. Lots of them. Later I got my camera and look she has moved a lot of her eggs. Today I checked and she has moved all of them. Good mama.

It was not running and had not run for 7 years and all four tires were flat. But DH took a chance and one week later after draining all liquids and repairs he got it running.
There are some more equipment that came with it I don't know what all. I'm ready to bring it home.

Making template

I got the pictures in the wrong order see the bottom one first.

This is how to make patterns on the computer using your printer and a design. I use a cheap glue stick and my iron. I think it is self explaining. This pattern is from

Thimbles a love hate can't do without them thing. I have many but these two are the go to one's. the yellow one I love because it wont hurt my finger. the metal one is generic from Hancocks or JoAnn's I like the rim hated that it hurt my finger. I had DH take it to the shop and hit it with a heavy hammer making it oval shape. That really helped. The finger in the photo just shows what quilting for too long a time will do to a joint. The box I love we found it at a junk shop someone made it from a drawer. I love how it holds thread I carry it to my easy chair with quilts to sew on bindings. check out Bonnies site to see more thimble stories.

Orca Bay Progress

Its coming right along. I'm liking it and the best thing is it used up a lot of scraps however I've more to use. I'm already thinking about my next project I'm thinking of finishing a UFO. Probably a good idea.
