TTMT #347 – jewells68 – March 25, 2020 – Operation Makin’ It Bigger

Not a lot happening crafty-wise here at the moment, but I did update a couple of quilt tops in my “waiting to quilt” collection by making them wide so that they meet Project Linus’ size requirements for toddler quilts. I also am looking forward to a new machine I ordered with a bunch of fun stitches to play with, and that will let me finish some applique quilts I have hanging around.

TTMT #344 – jewells68 – February 25, 2020 – Quilting Again!

Y’all I am quilting again, yaaaaaaaay! Actually quilted two Project Linus quilts over the weekend, have the binding picked out, just need to sew the binding together and bind those suckers. Words cannot express how joyful I am at quilting again. I am seriously deliriously happy about this! Here’s to many more quilts to come!

I quilted a thing! It’s trimmed and ready to bind. If I have enough of the yellow backing left I will just bind it with that. Hopefully I will. Y’all this is epic! I’m so glad to be quilting again! Woo!!

TTMT #332 – jewells68 – November 12, 2019 – Notes from the Sandbox

I got on a plane and did a thing! I had so much fun on retreat and can’t wait until the next one. Seriously people, get together with your crafty friends and do the thing!

TTMT #323 – jewells68 – August 27, 2019 – Rambly Times

A wee bit of crafty since last week. If only I had taken a photo… Anyway, here’s a bit of a ramble about why I’m not piecing and why I’m not quilting, and why I committed a random act of knitting over the weekend. I am seriously loling at the still in the video preview, ROFTL!

In which you see the beginnings of a special memorial quilt I’m working on while I blather on about basting with pool noodles and my dedication to imperfection. Cheers!

TTMT #4 May 21, 2019. Shelves are up & sewing room is coming together at last.

I made this video on Wednesday. For some reason half way through, the video becomes out of sync with my voice, so please forgive the irritating Japanese dubbed video. LOL. I didn’t have time for a redo. The sewing room is coming together. I can actually put my legs under the cutting table. My goal is to finish the Accordion Carpenters Wheel. I want it as a wall hanging so I am only going to add a small border. It is bigger than It thought it would be.

I have my work cut out for me. I want to cut down all those scraps. I will get more done if I do. I used up a great deal of my previous scraps as leaders and enders. It is time to replenish. I just have to consider cutting them up just as important as sewing. I also want to make some clothes for myself and my granddaughter.

Happy Memorial day weekend. Enjoy your families and friends.
