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!

And there were more Blocks....

This has been another eventful and busy week.....
Amongst all the here and there, and runnin' I happened to stop at a second hand store. I never usually even look in the department where they have material, Why I did this day is one of those mysteries. But I did much to my joy. I happened upon these items below with the exception of the new braided rug I purchased 15 1/2 yards of fabric for $12.75 The blue/yellow matched so well with the rug (yes I ended up getting the new rug for $3.00)I decided Spring Table Mats were in order. Now to decide which design to go with...... Further on down you will find many more 4" Farmers Wife Blocks, now will need to get busy on the 3 inch blocks.

Placemats to be...

Table Runner and placemats
A few more 4" Farmers Wife Sampler Blocks and a couple of 6 inch, with a fabric bargain thrown in..... A Great Week!!

My mother in law use to always say
"It's a Good Life If You Don't Weaken" I have decided this is my New motto for the 2011 year!
Have a Wonderful Week and Remember Quilting is soothing, so be sure and Soothe your soul!!

  1. Lovely blocks and so nice to pitch in and continue her blocks for her. What a deal on the fabrics... I wish we had those kind of deals where I live. Those placemats will really be a nice touch of spring. Thanks for visiting my blog!
