Week 12 – May 6 – 12, 2012 – Finish That Quilt

This is a quilt top I purchased on eBay for about $10.  I bought it with the idea of using it to practice quilting on my quilting machine – which I did.  However, I did add the outside borders first since it was SO… Continue Reading “Week 12 – May 6 – 12, 2012 – Finish That Quilt”

Week 11– April 29 – May 5, 2012 – Rice Heading Pad

Oh, what a wonderful project this is.  These little bags are easily constructed and then filled with regular rice.  Heated in the microwave for just a minute or two then placed where needed to provide comfort.  Use as you would a regular heating pad… Continue Reading “Week 11– April 29 – May 5, 2012 – Rice Heading Pad”

Week 10 – April 22 – 28, 2012 – Potpourri Air

These cute little air fresheners are the easiest and most fun to make.  Using a couple of 5” charm squares, a piece of tulle (wedding netting), a piece of ribbon, and your favorite smelling potpourri, you can whip these up in just a few… Continue Reading “Week 10 – April 22 – 28, 2012 – Potpourri Air”

Week 9 – April 15 – 21, 2012 – Bone Neck Pillow

Look another pillow!  What can I say, I like pillows.  Although I’m not one of those women who likes 15 pillows on my bed, but when I want a pillow I like to have them handy.  This one is especially nice to have on… Continue Reading “Week 9 – April 15 – 21, 2012 – Bone Neck Pillow”

I’m back …

I may be back, but I’m not sure where all my stuff is. We moved from Wanamaker, IN to New Palestine, IN.  Although that’s only about 8 miles away – moving is moving.  We were in that house for over 25 years and in… Continue Reading “I’m back …”

Week 7 – April 1 – 7, 2012 – Round Beach Tote

If you know me, you know I love bags!  Zippered bags (like last week), purses, and tote bags of all kinds, but this was the first time I’ve made one of these.  First of all – it’s got a round base!  And grommets around… Continue Reading “Week 7 – April 1 – 7, 2012 – Round Beach Tote”

Week 6 – March 25 – 31, 2012 – Zippered Bag

Zippered bags are pretty easy to make and it took just a couple hours to make this bag.   This is my Garmin and it’s been without a case since it was accidentally left in a rental car on our last trip to Florida.  Unfortunately,… Continue Reading “Week 6 – March 25 – 31, 2012 – Zippered Bag”

Miss Me?

I’ve been so busy lately I think my head is going to spin clean off my shoulders!  Although I can’t tell you at this time just what I’ve been busy doing, but when I do – it’ll be awesome!  I’ll let you know in… Continue Reading “Miss Me?”

Week 5 – March 18 – 24, 2012 – Finish That Quilt

I took an all day class on how to do maintenance on my Gammill Classic quilting machine and it was amazing!  If you don’t have a long arm quilting machine think of it like this… I learned how to tune up my car myself… Continue Reading “Week 5 – March 18 – 24, 2012 – Finish That Quilt”

Week 4 – March 11-17, 2012 – All Around the Square

This is a pattern from Easy Quilts, Summer 2012, that was really fun to make.  And yes, it was easy.  First of all it’s only 12” x 12” and uses just a little bit of fabric.  What a great way to use up some… Continue Reading “Week 4 – March 11-17, 2012 – All Around the Square”
