I know I’ve been quiet this week on here. RocketMan tested positive for Flu A yesterday and has been home from school all week. BirdMan was sick too but is feeling better and is back to school. So while I don’t have any quilty eye candy to share with you today. I do have eye […]
I just got back from a week in Des Moines at the APQS Rep Rally. I took a full week of classes and two days of maintenance training. I can now field dress any APQS machine! Plus, I got to meet so many artistic, friendly folks. I had a ball talking to Pat Sloan at […]
This is my daddy and RocketMan about 8 years or so ago. Aren’t they both adorable? My dad is very ill right now and I wanted to share this photo with everyone. He’s a young 59 and just an incredible man. Quilted Joy Blog Stop by QuiltedJoy.com for design inspiration, quilting options and pricing on […]
Today at school they spent a great deal of time learning about the presidency and celebrating the inauguration. In fact, they wrote a poem. Here’s RocketMan’s: Barack Obama is a kind person, and he’s definitely not a blind person. He likes to play basketball, and he doesn’t drink alcohol. They had to write their own […]
Rebecca’s Quilt is a one of those quilts that just makes me happy. I think it is the hot pink batik in it. Can you see the flange just before the outside border? It really adds a nice dimension to the overall design. Of course, I stayed off the flange so it could be all […]
I’ve been taking the Stories In Hand online class from JessicaSprague.com and loving her teaching style. Today was the last day and I’m going to miss it. Here’s the photoshop layout of a digital scrapbook page I made with her online tutorial. Don’t I look oh-so-computer-savy? She really makes it easy and I learned a […]
I’m finally getting around to sharing my kidlet’s Halloween photos. This year we went trick or treating at their 90 year old great-grandfather Pap-Pa Jay’s assisted living facility. He recently moved in there and seems to be doing well. This year my grandfather dressed up in his old Kosair Shrine Oriental Band costume which is […]
GooseyGirl was home sick Friday. Saturday & Sunday it hit me. Now this morning RocketMan, upon awaking, asked for a sick bucket. It is going to be a long day. Sigh. Looks like I won’t be getting much done. Oh, and the design choice for the Irish Chain from my earlier post? Jennie decided on […]
I just returned from a wonderful weekend with Jennie Beth and Sandy! My kidlets got to go intertubing, cliff diving, make a fire and chop wood. Jennie Beth’s husband is such a gem. My kids just LOVE him (oh, and they really like his dog Max, too). It was FUN! […]

This summer has flown by. My kidlets have gone to three camps and we went to Kings Island/ Great Wolf Lodge for vacation. Most importantly, they’ve enjoyed the crop of friends they’ve made on our street. There must be a dozen kiddos their same age to play with! This neighborhood is an incredible blessing. These […]
We are in full swing to meet the Ky State Fair deadlines. All three of my kidlets will have a quilt in the fair this year. I’m thrilled for them. Yesterday RocketMan put his quilt on the frame and got it quilted. He did a basic meander and did a wonderful job for his first […]
My client chose the “Lava” thread by Superior. It is all stitched and looks beautiful dancing across her four patch posie. I still need to get a photo of it to post. What I really wanted to share with you today is this little note by my son. He is with his dad this week on […]
