I’m playing “Catch-Up” Again.

Did you ever notice that I don’t often post pics of the gobs of things I have going on in my sewing room?  Well, that’s just wrong and I’m prepared to remedy that today.    Be warned this post is mostly pictures of projects that will someday be finished and awesome….even if right now they…

Transparency is Good in all Things.

There are so many things I love about quilts and more recently, quilt block design.  Seriously there are at least a gazillion amazing things about this art form that make me smile. So, it should come as no surprise that a technique that always piques my imagination is the notion of quilt transparency.  I’ve always been…

Home Sweet Home for FreckledFoxQuiltery

I’m  beside myself with excitement because today is the day I get to show you some photos of my beautiful new sewing space.  This was a huge renovation for us and while its done, its not really decorated  (or dusted) yet but I couldn’t wait any longer. First up the stairway we go.  FYI we…

Feedspot says my Blog is great

How cool is this! Two new badges for my blog… First is this one.  Honestly I am amazed and thrilled that my blog caught the eye of grandparents in Canada…I think it’s because my blog used to be called GRANNYcanQUILT.  My blog is no. 39 on this list. And Ta-Da, Officially I’m no. 41 on the…

I love this

I was poking around on blogs I follow recently and found this awesome spot.  Seriously, you have to visit Granny Maud’s Girl.  I am smitten, infatuated and beguiled by so many things I found there.  Its a beautiful blog, with beautiful fotos, and OMG my heart skipped a beat or two, a time or two when…

What on Earth is a “Listicle”?

You are so wrong if you think a listicle might be a fancy kind of popsicle and it is definitely not related in any way to the anatomy of either of the two original human genders. Here is the definition as set out by Dictionary.com lis·ti·cle ˈlistək(ə)l/ noun plural noun: listicles a piece of writing…

Sewing at my Kitchen Table

We are one week into the transformation from Man Cave in the attic into my quilting studio.  Trust me when I say, its a monster project.  Thank goodness its moving along lickety-split.  Upstairs, we now have a large open floor area with tons of space for a big cutting island, my sewing table, a dedicated…

The Name Game

Do you name your quilt patterns and/or your finished quilts?  If so, how do you do this? This has been on my mind ever since I saw a note posted by a new blogger friend, Joni from “The Love of Thread”.  BTW, Joni is taking part in the 2018 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop along…

March is such a DrEAMI month!

Following is an excerpt from a blog that I follow. DrEAMi Moments have happened to the best of us. I’m not talking that time in English class when you totally embarrassed yourself because you drifted off to Alpha-getti 9 because your were imagining some alone time with the boy upon whom you had an insane…

Quilting Room Relief On the Way!

My sewing room is in upheaval.

As you can imagine the result is completely cataclysmic.  I cannot find anything anymore.  But…am I upset?  Nope, not…
