More hooting owls

I’d almost forgotten to share these from our sewing circle last Thursday. This is the latest on my friends’ owl projects… aren’t they cute? They sure are moving along with this project!

Help with fraying in your appliqué project?

Every time someone comes down to Quito for a visit I take advantage and have them bring down what I consider are my essential notions and supplies. This time my brother was kind enough to pack a little bag of goodies for me I had ordered and had sent to him. For someone who doesn’t […]

Can this get any cuter?

I must say, it really is fun watching my friends’ progress as they work on a project together. Every week brings surprises, and I am always in awe of their magnificent appliqué skills. Today has been no exception. Just check these hooting owls!

Hooting Owls

Now that the dove wallhangings are finished, my friends have become busy with their new owl projects. I thoroughly enjoy being able to see them work on one of my designs… it is particularly fun to see how each one evolves differently.

Last finished Dove and a fun day of sewing

This past Thursday our friend Luchita brought her finished Dove wall hanging to share. I just love the way each wall hanging turned out so differently because of the different fabrics each of my friends chose. Isn’t this a cheery Dove?

Country Cups

It’s a good feeling to finish a project, isn’t it. Particularly when you’ve had it sitting around for a while. This weekend’s project was to finish my Country Cups wall hanging. I mean, it’s only taken me three months to do so.

Bachita’s finished dove

Another Thursday. More fun sewing with friends. Not the least of which is that on these days we get to talk to our friend Mariangela. Not as good as having her here with us, but nonetheless we are sure grateful for the technology that allows us to keep in touch.

Thursday Sewing Circle

Another week… and more busy sewing in our little circle of friends. And progress, too, as we finish projects. Luchita has finished her dove quilt. All that was left (and which she finished now) was the binding.

Time for the owls

My friends in my sewing circle have all decided to sew the Life’s a Hoot! BOM this year. As with the dove project, it will be fun to follow their progress and see how each walhanging turns out. Bachita started hers first, and has her tree appliquéd. She is now starting to work on the […]

Thursday sewing

Now that two of the dove projects are finished, my friends have started (or gone back to) new projects! Although Bachita has finished her dove project (well, except for the binding), she didn’t bring it with her. Hopefully she will next week so we can post photos of the finished project.

One finished dove

Susy was the one person in our sewing circle this last week who was able to finish her Dove project. Well, except for the eye, that is, which she quickly fixed by sewing on a button.

Quilting the Doves

For different reasons, our entire sewing circle had not been able to meet for over three weeks. In between, it’s just been a couple of us at a time, waiting for things to settle for our friends so we could return to our Thursday get-togethers. That finally happened this week.

Dove Progress

This week has been filled with computer work: designing and cleaning out my trusty machine. Jared is putting a new computer together for me, which finally pushed me to do some pretty necessary housekeeping, sorting out and deleting old files and folders.

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
