I love to dye fabric, make thread pictures and quilt. I live in the Yukon on an acreage with my husband, 2 dogs and 34 fish. It's the 'good' life.

What I am working on


I am having one of those weeks/months. My blog was high jacked by 'anonymous' and I had to add some external security features to wrestle control back. My last post was a test--all is working well. If you can believe it, Blogger actually assisted me in this!

Now that I can post again, I will be adding some stuff. For now, here is what I am working on:

I am doing a 'quilt as you go' with these monster 19" blocks. I had put them away for a year and it was time to work on them. Not my favorite quilt by any means (I did the patches wrong), but will be fine for the couch.

Here is the layout I'm going to use.

This thing seriously took less than a day to get together. I just need to put the blocks together and add a  binding of some kind and its all done. I will do this again AND will do the patches correctly..

And here is the machine embroidered Christmas wall hanging top completed. I like it in blue. Yes, this IS sitting on 4 feet of snow. Yes I DO still have this much snow in  my yard.

And I am putting together this half square triangle quilt. Using all my extra creams and whites and a couple of charm packs I received from Creative Threads. 

Just fooling around with the layout, and this may change by the time I put the top together. 

I have 6 quilts needing to be quilted and my friend Robin has graciously offered to let me come around whenever I want to do them. My goal is to have them all done by June. 

That's it for now! Hope you are all having a great weekend.. 


  1. Snow that deep, I can only dream of it, and lovely layout for the half square triangle, 19 inch blocks, a great way to go, I'll put that thought away for later on, down here. Cheers from jean
