About Me

My photo
I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!

It's so nice to be getting caught up!

Last minute addition to post:
We were playing with the Camera yesterday so thought I would also post pictures of two of my guys. Carl and Casey are twins and are my "babies"( yes, if they knew I wrote that they would be after me) hee,hee. Casey has sure gained some height this summer. Shadow is a Springer Spaniel mix (brown and white) is about 10 years old and Sierra is a German Shepherd/Collie and is about 8 months, we have had her about a month now.

Shadow, Sierra, Carl...................Carl and Casey (twins)

Shadow, Sierra, Carl........................Casey
Original Post:
I tend to be one of these people that hates getting behind! it doesn't seem to matter if it's one block or 7, then throw a quilt in there and it drives me further.......... But, "Life and Summer" tends to throw curves into the basket and things just happen.... But, it feels so good getting caught up!!
I can say now I have one Wisconsin Barn Block #30 to catch up, and two guild blocks all which look very easy to do, and one of Golden Threads Barn blocks that just need the small 4" block.
I have two project warmth quilts that I would like to get quilted and one of them is fairly small I think it is all do able this week.
I am hoping to start a Farmer Wife Sampler Quilt, it will be 2 blocks a week and will be doing 4" paperpieced blocks(at least that's my plan for now), the group is actually going to do 6" but sometimes different is good. I have also been checking into the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Quilt, from what I have seen it's absolutely Beautiful & wonderful! I think I would really like to do that quilt too.
These two quilts are Project Warmth Quilts # 22 and #23 that I Quilted for BHQGuild. On both of them I did an all over meander.

Quilting OHHHHH so much fun!!!!! I wish all a very wonderful and productive, peaceful Day!
