It's been a while....

Greetings from the frozen Midwest. I know it's been a few days since my last post but rest assured that I am very much alive and well (maybe just a bit frozen). I've been busy too!! We got back 3 quilts we sent to a friend for long arm machine practice, and I have to say that given that shes NEVER used a long arm machine before she did a great FREEHAND job!!!

I REALLY love the way she quilted the fish quilt, it looks like waves!!!

After a year break from my pencils, I've decided now is a good time to get back into drawing. So tonight, just a few short minutes ago in fact, I created this.....

Whats in it????


My freshly resharpened colored pencils!!!! The fabric for the back and inside are from Ricky Tims Oodles of Doodles line (fitting don'tcha think??). The dark pocket is from the Nikki line by Pat Sloan.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Welcome back! Great doodle pouch!

  2. I love the quilting on your quilts. She did a great job.

    Too cool on the pencil pouch! I need to make me a "Sharpie pen roll-up"

  3. I want to see your sketches....I am always amazed by those who have that talent.

    Wonderful quilts!

  4. Sorry it's so cold there, maybe you should come soak some California sunshine! Your quilts finished well, and that pencil roll up is neat. So, let's see a drawing....
    I wanted to thank you for your kind words while Larry was so ill, too, we were both touched by all the kindness expressed online. Blessings ~

  5. Beautiful quilts! I can't wait to show them to my kids when we talk about quilting next week as part of our homeschool work!
