Ready to Go

Finally, I'm ready to start cutting my Kaffe quilt. I started buying these fabrics when I went to Quilting Adventures in Richmond VA a couple of years ago. Shortly after my trip to Richmond I went to The Artful Quilter in Centreville VA for the piece of fabric that's laying across the top of the picture. I was still short a couple of yards to start my project, well leave it to my good friend Jackie to lend a helping hand. No, she did not pull from her stash, please check the previous post showing her birthday present to see what you might find in her stash. While on her birthday weekend getaway she found a quilt shop that had a ton of Kaffe and she called and said "okay tell me what you need", how's that for a friend? I now have my nine yards for my scrappy block look, notice I'm not telling what I'm doing, I want it to be a surprise. So keep watching and I'll be sure to give you a weekly update on my Kaffe to Go Quilt, yep it already has a name. I think I'll start the iron and begin with my pressing of 12 yards of beautiful fabric.
Happy Quilting


  1. Hi, My sister-in-law visited your shop this past weekend with her mom and told me about you, since I own a shop up in Western PA. I found your BLOG. Hope all is going well with you. I opened my shop in June of 2008.

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind


Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
