Embroidery Saturday

Tom is fixing up a baby basket for a baby shower today and picked up this pink fleece fabric, I was able to make this small baby blanket a cover a small pillow and embroider the babies name (don’t even ask what these mothers are naming their babies these days).  This child will be called Zen or Daya for the rest of her life, but it is not a bad name.


So Happy Saturday Sewing, I am off to a cook out.

On To The Next Hop


The next hop starting next week is the Stamp On It.  You can read the details on this hop at Sew We Quilt.  Our cheerleader is Thearica from Pig Tales and Quilts...  Looking forward to but my stamp out there for the blog world to see.  So come out to join the hoppers June 26 – July 3.



Now that I am getting over my cold ( I still have a lingering cough), I will be finishing off my 3 Pass It Forward gifts to 3 lovely ladies who have been waiting for the last 3 months.  I am so sorry ladies, I just wanted to pass something forward that you will use and when I think to hard on fabric and other details it put me behind, but rest a sure they will be in the mail this week just need to finish one more thing.

I will not show what I sent until they have received it in the mail and blog about it.

I have been editing some pictures for a picture quilt and it has taken up a lot of evening.  I did to get them printed on fabric and get this thing done before the next retreat next month.

I have a lot to share with all of you, that is not really quilt related, but some fun stuff in the weeks to come.

So Stitch you later

Tammy Blog Hop Time



I must say I have been a piss poor cheerleader during this hop.  Although I have visited every one and left a comment, I had not given them a shout out.  I am so sorry for that.  I am planning to do better during the rest of the hop.

I'm so glad to be participating in this blog hop hosted by Mdm Samm at Sew We Quilt.  It has really gotten me out of my quilting/sewing slump and as always Thank you Mdm Samm for making this blog hop possible.

So on with the show.  As one of my girlfriends said, like the Lay’s Potato Chips “You can't just eat one”, when make one of Mdm Samm’s bags, “you can’t just make one” you have to make more, and believe me I do plan on make more of these.  I made over 70 coin purses for gifts and no telling how many Tammy Bags I will make before the holidays.  So here are my pictures.

Tammy 1

I am into my poke-a- dot stage again and just had to use this fabric.

The Tammy Bag made it to Family Day.  More on that tomorrow.

I do plan to put a chain handle on my Tammy Bag, but since I have been sick this week, I will have to wait until I get to the store.  Hope you liked my bag and please see the other hoppers today.

Out At the Quilt Show- Quilt Unlimited

I must still apologize to my followers for not blogging for awhile here.  I am still in a blogging/quilt funk.  I have had so many things on my mine and even some wild titles for blogs in my head, like “Quilt Suicide” or “Bloggers Are Us” and “What’s Up With The Cat Fur”.  My “Quilting MOJO” seems to be out of whack, but I am trying to get it back.  (Whack/Back).

Yesterday (Friday), I took off from work (been doing that a lot) to hang with my girls Linda (Eat, Sleep ,Quilt) and Pat to ride down to Chantilly, VA to take in the Quilters Unlimited Quilt Show.  This was a great show to attend and it was better then the Baltimore Quilt & Sew Expo last month.  Great vendors and Quilts.  I did not have my camera with me, so these pictures are from my cell phone.  Did not get to take a lot, my battery was running down.   




This quilt is at the Artistic Artifacts booth and was done by Linda Cooper and I think it is called Kinetic Quilts.  I am sorry if you cannot see it that well, cell phones do not make a good pictures.  This is a two-sided mobile-like art quilt with small mini-quilts in the center.  I plan to take this class in September and Artistic Artifacts is located in Alexandra, VA not really far and if I have to take the metro train, they will pick me up for the train station.  Check out their web site www.ArtisticArtifacts.com/classes to learn more.  You can see more of Linda Cooper’s work here http://www.lindacooperquilts.com/KineticQuilts.htm

Now I must say that in every show there is always some item that you see that you say to yourself, “I could have made that” or “I can use something different” or “that is a waste of money”.  Well this little idea below, was one of those items, that when I saw it I said “I can use a crab mallet” .


Yes readers it is a The Wacker.  This little mallet is a must have item for your sewing room.  I do not know how we have ever lived without this most important tool in our quilting life.  Once you press your seams, you take the mallet and wack that seam flat.  You have a perfect flat seam.  No more bumps or lumps. You can now flatten those unruly multi-layer seam allowances that your iron cannot do.  Oh I must not forget that with a combine price of $26 you can even get the wacking board, which is a 1 or 2 inch thick wood board with batting and a cloth cover.  No more dents on your tables with this item.  And if this is a most need item for your sewing pleasure just hope on over to www.harvesthousequilting.com.  Stop laughing.  This is a real tool, and I think I will be going out to get my sewing friends the crab mallet.

Well as you can see this is a early posting for me.  I am off to Atlantic City with a bus load of people my son included.  The center of my hand has been itching, do you think I am in for a big win?  I hope so.

So until I blog again
