ABC's from Fabric

ABC's from Charms. Still, have to cut the holes out of them.  I used pinking shears to cut them out for added visual effect.

I just used the charms I had on hand.  Next time I will use ones that are more colorful and fun.  Please choose your 4" letters careful, curves are harder to sew around than straight lines.  Will show the final letters when done. 

Merry Christmas!

Celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus!  Went to Church this morning for Christmas service.
Christmas play was about "What would it be like it Jesus was born in 2011"  Mary and Joseph came in on a Harley, Jesus was born in a warehouse, the kings were workers with hardhats on. 
The season is truly about his birth and why he came to be born.  May this be a meaningful and blessed Christmas for you and your family.

Have Been Away for awhile!

I can't believe that May was the last time I blogged.  Things in life can change in a blink of an eye.  My husband came home in June and asked me if I wanted to buy a Consignment shop, I really thought he was kidding but Guess what, we now are the owners of a Consignment Shop.  I really wanted a Quilt Shop.  Oh, Well!
I really miss sewing or quilting when I want too.  I'm now working 40+ hours a week.  I have to work any type of sewing or quilting into my life, it is like having to make an appointment, I find a few minutes or moments to do so.

Triple Atomic Wings

We went to Quaker Steak & Lube with wonderful friends last night for their Anniversary,  Brian is trying the Triple Atomic wings for the first time, you have to sign a wavier to be able to eat them, they are that hot.  So here is a picture of him and the waiver and then a video of him eating them.  He didn't eat them all.  There was only 6, he may have gone home and finished them but not at the table.  It was dark in there, so it is hard to see him, but you can hear what he said.  We did have a great time.
Don't try this at home!

Girls Rule!

Here is the beginning of the clock, I am making for my granddaughter, Kayden.
She wanted a calendar and a clock for her room, I got the calendar first and then went with the idea for the clock from the colors of the calendar. The clock is made out of a painted canvas, the clock parts are on the back, ones you can buy at any craft store.

Snowy Days

It is snowing again, it seems like it will never end this winter season. I hope if we ever have another house, I would love to have a wood burning stove. I love the smell of wood burning when it is snowing. It has not been to where we could not get out of the house and go places. We still take weekend drives to just get out of the house because of cabin fever! Hope everyone is working on some type of quilty item.
Stay warm and keep your stitches together,

Trying Transfer-Eze

Trying this item called Transfer-Eze it suppose to help with your embroidering, make it easier.  You transfer the pattern onto the transfer-eze, you can use your printer and print the pattern right on it and then place on your fabric to be embroider. Well, as it stands now, I am not that impressed with it.  It really makes your fabric stiff and hard to handle, I do have a backing interfacing on, I like that cause it hides the threads.  When I am done, I am to cut away as much as I can and run the rest under water to remove the transfer-eze, I will let you know how that goes, hope this works, because this piece is for an anniversary, coming up soon.  Peace and stitches,

Life in the Winter time!

Here the other bud has bloomed, I was asked a few days ago, how I got a clematis to bloom in the winter?  And inside at that.  It was not planned, please read the earlier post on how I got the clematis.  I just have to get it to stay alive till spring, so I can plant it outside and hope it will live a long time.  A few houses down from my is a beautiful purple clematis that blooms every year and it lives on a lamp post.  I have tried in NC and here to get them to bloom and no luck.  Maybe with this one, that should have die at the nursery, it will live to just show them, that it can live.  It has snowed most of the day here, it is time to start looking at gardening and seed magazines, to see what spring will bring.
Till next time, dream of fabric, color, seeds and what challenge they will bring up,

We most certainly create the world we live in.  Or at least we try to.  But there are times when other people try and lend a helping hand, with their good intentions.  Which may be good for them, but not necessarily for us.  That is why it is important to follow your path, and not get taken down the wrong one.  This sign is in a quilt shop in NC, called, Loving Stitches. Posted by Picasa

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  My blogger Friends

January is a month of renewal, and fresh starts, named for Janus,

the Roman god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings, endings and time.
What will your renewal and fresh start be?
What gates, doors and beginnings will you open?
What will you end and what time will you use?

Thoughts to ponder till next time,
