What's Up?

Not much, unfortunately.

The two mystery lap quilts each have their double borders added and are on their way to Meandering Mary to be quilted. She will now have 4 of my quilts in her stacks of quilts.

I have 192 of the 288 half square triangles completed for the Friendship Star quilt. I'm getting a little tired of the HSTs, so I might start making a few blocks to keep me motivated!

While I'm not really attracted to folk art projects, I saw this little lady at Ye Olde Schoolhouse and just had to have her. I fused on the silhouette and now am blanket stitching her into place. (no, the finished project does not include a needle coming out of her head! LOL. You need to click on the image and really look to see my needle.) I'm including the package picture of what she will look like when done. I love the little curtain; however, I'm thinking of making it in a different fabric. To see more you can go to She has some great primative artwork and other quilting patterns.

I am also still hand stitching binding on quilts. Luckily, I have some good books on CD to listen to as there is NOTHING on TV anymore.

I've been having problems with dizziness and nausea, especially when laying down. I'm on acid reflux medication, but it is getting worse. My doctor, whom I saw today, feels I might have an inner ear viral infection going on. Let's hope that is all it is!

I love the pattern, too, Marcie. I enjoy your blog. I hope you don't mind, but I added you to my blog list.

love this little quilt shop...was worried when we moved to Wisconsin this Spring that I wouldn't be able to find a shop to replace the ones I left behind...easy shot straight out 60 for me...and there's a great candy shop in Cedarburg filled with everything chocolate.

It is a great quilt shop! I am glad you found it as well as my blog!

I am very familiar with Cedarburg and I love going there. So many wonderful memories. My grandparents lived in an old house on the creek just down from the old mill shops. It is now owned by my cousin, making it a 4 generational house.

I know the chocolate store well! Yum! I will be in Cedarburg tomorrow for Strawberry Fest - one of my favorite annual events.

If you look closely at the pictures and map at Ye Olde Schoolhouse (hung by the counter), you will see a plat with my family name on it - the original homestead, which is just down the road from the store. I truly believe my grandparents or great-grandparents are in some of the old pictures of school children.

I need to make it up to that store sometime. I've heard about it, but never found it. Wish it was a bit closer!

You will find it worth your dive up.

I looked at your blog and enjoyed it very much. Come back and visit mine soon!
