Missing In Action

Where is the truck with my stuff? It is somewhere between southern California and the Deep South!

More importantly, where is my Moda fabric? Where is my Jana (my middle-aged Janome sewing machine)? I am going through serious withdrawals!

It might be a few more days before I have Internet access again, so hang in there while I am missing in action! I will have several stitchery projects to show you.
Until Next Time....Happy Quilting!

Goodbye Texas!

Goodbye Texas! Hello Deep South! Again!
What have I been doing while riding in the car? Stitching! I'll post pictures later!
Until Next Time.....Happy Quilting!

I Am A Collector

I am a collector. I love to collect:
  • Angels
  • Blue & White Dishes
  • Toy Irons
  • Yellow Depression Glass
  • Antique Silverware
  • Antique Teacups
  • Italian Pottery
  • Books & Magazines
  • Shoes & Purses
  • Fabric
  • Fabric
  • Fabric

Whenever we travel, I collect souvenir spoons and thimbles. My DH collects t-shirts. My little person collects magnets. Here is my Little Person's collection of magnets.

Why am I showing you this? Well my DH is being transferred. We are leaving Southern California and we are headed for the Deep South! This means that we are on the road again and my Little Person will be collecting more magnets.

It took the movers/packers 2 days to box up all of my stuff/fabric and one day to load up the truck. We (my DH and Little Person) have been on the road for 2 days, which is 1400 miles. Tyler, TX is where we will spend the night.

Never fear because my old gang is waiting for me in the Deep South (Michelle, Robyn, Martha, Amy, Cindy--all non-bloggers).

They are going to be waiting for me at the county line! Trust me, they are not as scary as they look!

Luckily, my blogger buddies will only be a "click" away!

So, I guess that it's farewell Southern California and all of it's beautiful people and "Hello" Deep South! Again!

Until Next Time.....Happy Quilting!

Until Next Time....Happy Quilting!

I'm Still Around

It seems like the dreaded "cold bug" has landed on the Quilt Buddy household! Even though I am a little bit under the weather, here is what is waiting for me:

It is another quilt top that is completed and "half-way" quilted. Of course it is not one the UFOs on my list! Now if I could only stop coughing and blowing my nose long enough to get something done.

Until Next Time.....Happy Quilting!

Done With One

Yeah! I have completed my first project for February! It is my copy of the Secret Valentine Tea Party Swap. Sorry, but I can't show you the completed version because the original hasn't been received by its new owner. (Soon Mrs. Quilt Hollow, I promise)

So I will just show you snippets of the back:

See, I even have the label on it!

Here is my updated 2009 completed project pile. Of course it is just a snippet!

Stay tuned because more is on the way!
BTW-To all of my Australian "blog buddies", I hope that all of you are safe! I'll be thinking of you! I know what you are going through because I survived the Wildfire of Southern California. Stay safe and heed all warnings!
Until Next Time....Happy Quilting!

Pink or Red?

Pink or Red? Which is your favorite?
This is a snippet of my red and pink stash. As for me...I am partial to Red, but it doesn't matter as long as it is Moda!
What's new with me? Well, I finished my own copy of my "Secret" Valentine's swap gift. I just have to sew on the binding and then my first project for February will be completed!
I also have my second project ready to be basted and quilted. Yeah! Looks like I am in for a busy weekend.
Oops..I put up the picture of the cupcake because my "Little Person" called it a "Butt cake"!
Until Next Time...Happy Quilting!

How is it February? I just got used to writing January 2009 on all of my stuff! Not to mention things are "CRAZY" at the Quilt Buddy Household! However, I did manage to complete 3 projects for the month of January! Unfortunately, I didn't win the drawing for the One-A-Month Challenge , but I am proud of what I completed.

Here is another first! I completed my Designer Mystery BOM in the same month that it was sent to me. Woohoo! This month's block is called "Star Party" and it was designed by Bonnie Olaveson of Cotton Way. it is:

Of course I took the opportunity to add to my little "Improv" quilt. Here is what it looked like before:
Then I took these:

And I made this:

I still don't know what I am going to do with it, but I will figure it out later. Don't you just love this fabric...Peace on Earth by 3 Sisters for MODA!

I have almost completed my version of my "secret" swap project. I will share the photos once the original one is in the hands of its new owner!

Until Next....Happy Quilting!!

(and Happy Groundhog's Day!)
