Tuesday Tips–4/22/2014

Just a quick post.  I’m Busy, Busy, Busy!!

I have a quilt top I’m working on for Fabric Café – My favorite 3-yard Bundle shop!  I want to get this done and back to Donna by the time she’s back from the Quilt Show in Paducah, KY.  If you are going to the Show, stop by Booth #1722 and say hi to Donna & Robert!

Friday Finds — 4/18/2014

Today has been cloudy & cool cold.  So I made a big slow pot full of vegetable soup with sausage – you know the kind: Empty the Refrigerator all in one pot!  Then I heated the house making some melt-in-your-mouth sweet cornbread.

Well here are this week’s Friday Finds – Better late than never, I guess.

Free Patterns

Fat Quarter Shop shares a free pattern – A Tisket, A Tasket.  One of the nice features that the Fat Quarter Shop often does is to have a supporting YouTube Video.

Tip Tuesday–04/15/2014

Summer is trying to sneak in.  Temperatures have been in the 80’s but Winter is still trying to have a say.  We’re under a freeze warning and it may get cold tomorrow night.

Today I have a couple of Tips.  I admit, I am a list maker.  Yes, my daily list starts something like this:

  • “Get Up”
  • “Get Dressed”
  • “Eat Breakfast”

This way I can start the day with several items crossed off and I feel I’m accomplishing something!

This also translates into some ‘virtual’ lists I use when sewing.  At a Quilt Retreat I attended earlier this month, I had a number of projects and spent the first day just cutting.  Here is what I did to keep my projects organized:
