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!

Design Wall Monday.....

On my Design Wall or Design Table in this case, is the Mini Bow Tuck Purse I completed over the weekend. I have been wanting to make one of these and had picked up some material for a friendship block I needed to get made. I set the material down and it just so happened to be by the pattern and it was like it was calling to be made into it. Sooooo I will have to find different material for the block..LOL.......WalaMini Bow Tuck

Then I decided I should really show what is on my design wall... I have posted this to my blog just recently so if it's a repeat I aplogize now.

The Winter/Snoman quilt is still in progress but did not add the picture. I am adding the final blocks to the outside edge and a couple of borders then will post another picture before quilting. Have a Wonderful day and be sure and check out the the many more Design Wall's.
