TTMT #405 – jewells68 – June 8, 2021 – Jewells’ & Jennifer’s Excellent Adventure, aka Retreat Pt2

In which I show and tell what I made and/or finished during my long weekend BFF Retreat with Jennifer O., including the finished quilt from Jennifer’s “Chocolate Box” pattern which I made for our host, dubbed “Long Live Rock”, the matching “cat quilt” for his kitty, and the tops I pieced during retreat, including one Jennifer pieced and sent home with me. 2 are already quilted! Also I have some news that will affect my quality time in my Project Room. So make sure you watch all the way through. This one is longer than usual, but there are a lot of photos at the end.

TTMT #400 – jewells68 – April 20, 2021 – Now with More Geese

In which I show you progress on 3 more strips of flying geese and some fabric purchased to finish the very quilt for which I am making the geese. πŸ™‚

My workplace began transitioning the employees that have been working from home back to the office yesterday. I am scheduled to return on May 3. Understandably, I have mixed feelings about this, but am working on preparing myself both physically and mentally for the transition.

TTMT#399 – jewells68 – April 13, 2021 – Making the Cut(s)

So I just barely remembered today was Tuesday and recorded a quick video. Please excuse the messy hair… messier than usual hair, anyway, lol. But I just let it air dry and it was SUPER windy today and my hair was still wet when I went out this morning to bring the garbage and recycle bins back up to the house. Long story short (I know… too late!) it made my hair even more “mad scientist” than usual. In this brief video I wish my nephew a happy birthday, talk about an outdoor Project Linus meeting we had this past weekend, and show off a strip of flying geese. Stay crafty, my friends!

TTMT #398 – jewells68 – April 6, 2021 – Best Made Plans

slowly making progress

In which I show you 2 finished quilts which will be donated this weekend to Project Linus. We are having a parking lot meeting to show off 1 quilt each and get supplies like batting and fabric. We are hoping to be able to meet inside next month, if not then maybe June. Meanwhile I have made zero progress on the panel quilt I started a couple weeks ago other than now all the supplies I need to finish the top are now obtained. So here’s to making more progress in the coming week!

TTMT #397 – jewells68 – March 30, 2021 – A New Quilt

Because OF COURSE I started a brand new quilt.

In which I talk about starting a new quilt design that I’ve already begun piecing. I also talk about things that need to be quilted and show some tops and backings Jennifer O. sent to me for Project Linus. Finishing the memory quilt and getting it into DeAnn’s hands has motivated me to get more quilts finished, so that’s what’s on the agenda for April!

TTMT #396 – jewells68 – March 23, 2021 – Memory in the Sun


In which I show the finished Irish Chain memory quilt that’s been nearly 2 years in the making for my friend DeAnn. The wind makes some of it hard to hear, sorry about that. But no dogs barking this time! The luck of the Irish! πŸ˜‰
