Here's hoping your New Year will see a better economy, more jobs, fewer expenses and more time to do what you would like to do whether it's spending family time, taking trips or just relaxing. I wish much success to all artisans who have handmade items in their online shops and pray that 2012 will bring many sales, lots of new customers and plenty of shop exposure.... » Read More

We've been experiencing extremely warm weather as I'm sure most of the midwest has been much warmer that normal. This has given me a chance to make a couple of crib quilts to add onto my shoppe. I will continue to add quilts as I get them completed, hope to add at least two more crib quilts (one will be all cotton) and then start to work on a full size peach colored quilt. Please check out the collection and leave any comments or questions about alternate prints or other sizes. Thank you for looking and visiting my blog and shoppe.
Edited to Add: I've recently added a few more crib quilts and remnant fabric to my shoppe. Plan to have ... » Read More
It has been awhile since my last blog. With the heals of spring finally arriving (starting to warm up in central Utah), I've been outside planting my cool weather vege's: peas, spinach, lettuce and onions.

I'm new to the social media/blog world and will try my best to describe what I do. Usually, I take either what crafters call a "pillow panel" or "wallhanging middle" print (usually animals, floral, or special order ie: cabin by the lake). I then build out by cutting strips, borders, or triangles, whether solid or patterned and continue the process until I've created a quilt or what I call a wrap (smaller quilt version). I then measure what I use for the back, either fake fur, fleece or flannel. The back and top (tops consist of cotton, fleece or flannel) are then put on a quilt frame (with batting in the middle on all items except flee... » Read More
With the first signs of winter comes the chores of winterizing faucets, weatherizing doorways and windows, burning the wood stove for heat, getting out the heavier clothes, blankets and quilts to stay warm during the chilly months ahead.Most of my handmade comforters, quilts and throws are designed for those colder months in the uppermost US states and Canada. I create sizes from crib to king (special order only) using an 8 ft. long work table at the far end of my living room and quilt frames to stitching them together and finishing hems on the sewing machine that seems to be a permanent fixture on my kitchen table. A detailed description of h... » Read More
