Well, it has taken me about 4 1/2 months to figure out how to get back into my blog account.  Moving has taken time, but I could not get into my blog to post anything, and that has not been any fun.  I'm back online in the blog world, so when I have a little more time I will bring you some new, news.  I have missed being here with you.
Take Care

Wonders All Around Us!

We never know when we will find something or something will find us.
Yesterday, I kept hearing a bird that I thought was on the back porch, so I never went to go and look to see where or what bird it may have been.
This is what I found as I was going out the front door to go to the shop.
This hangs on the left going out our front door, this spring I will need to redo with new dry flowers.
Here is the little bird, I found as I was leaving.  It made sure I knew it was there, I did not check for eggs, what to make sure it stays and takes care of them if there are any.
Each year I get a Mourning Dove or some little bird that likes to make nest somewhere on my front porch, in whatever planter or basket may be there.  There is always a gift for me.

I am still working on Becca's T-shirt and should be putting the rows together today.  A friend brought me her sewing machine yesterday to work on, to see if I can fix it.  So she can get back to sewing.  All, this while working at the shop, here is a Link to our shop blog.


Happy Threads and Needles,

Grow My Blog

Hi, ya'll and Welcome from Northeast Ohio, I'm RoseMary.  Come in, sit down and make yourself at home. Join in Grow My Blog, and visit blogs all over the world, just click the Grow My Blog on the left.
I started this blog to meet new friends from other places and for my love of Quilting, started off strong and then, my husband brought a consignment shop in June 2011, and have not been keeping up with my first love-QUILTING.  I wear way too many hats, but am the happiest when I am quilting or sewing.

I am working on a t-shirt for my niece Becca, as you can see in the past blog.  I am posting the steps, the hard part for me is finding the time to blog.  I hope you will join my blog family and friends.  I have a give away, I'm not done sewing it together.  I have the top done and here it is.  It will be a Ladybug Pincushion, when done. This post won't let me put the picture where I want it to be

  Please leave me a post on your favorite thing you like to collect.  I collect buttons and all types of old sewing items.  Please leave your email so I can contact you, when my husband draws the winning name.  Which will be Feb 1st.
It is cold here tonight, no snow, we had about 22 inches right after Christmas, that has all melted and waiting for the next storm to come and blanket us with some more snow. 
I am blessed with a great husband, Rich.  7 Children, 9 Grandchildren, #10 is due the end of July, and 1 great grandson.  
Glad you stopped by and hope you will come back. And check out my and hubby's other blog at www.secondtimearoundconsignment@blogspot.com

Happiest when needle meets fabric,

T-Shirt Quilt for Niece "Becca"

One of my niece's "Becca" called and ask if I would make a T-shirt quilt for her boyfriend, like the one I made for her dad.  I said yes, just send me the shirts, not due till April for his birthday, thank the good Lord, LOL.  So, this is what I have been doing today, so I am going to show you the steps I take in making a T-Shirt Quilt.  This first part I forgot to take pictures, so I will just type it out. 
I take the t-shirts and cut up the sides to under the sleeves and then lay flat and then cut the top of the sleeves to the neck and will have two parts, front and back.  Then, I add interfacing to the back so it won't stretch, when working with it and looks better when done quilting it.

You can use white or black, which ever is cheaper at the store.  Apply this to the back of all the parts you want to use, fronts and or backs of the t-shirts.  Count how many you have and then draw up your plans for the layout.

I only had 18 pieces, so I have to figure out how to make two more, I have two extra pieces of solid black t-shirt backs that had no pictures or words on them.  So those two pieces, I will add a picture of my niece and Gavin and her boyfriend and on the other one with be their names.  Here, is the next step, I start hanging them and take pictures to see if it looks good and move pieces as I go.

 I hate it when the publish button gets hit and your not done with the page your working on.  Will finish up tomorrow.

I am the happiest when I put needle and thread to fabric,
