This blog was created to document my journey learning to quilt by hand. However it has evolved to much more. Some of the things I blog about are: machine quilting, setting up and designing my new small home and life in general. I will add other adventures as I embark upon them.

We are half way through the year! Where has 2016 gone? The holiday selling season will be here soon and I have just started making seasonal decor for the shop.
I did finally get the snowman appliqued on the wall hanging. This is a picture before applique. I was trying to figure out snowman placement.
I need to stay off YouTube and Pinterest. I keep getting inspired to start new things so nothing gets finished. Could be why my UFO box is crammed full.
This is a picture of an inspiration from Jude at Spirit Cloth.
It is a slow process since I am suppose to let it speak to me as I go. It doesn't talk a lot. LOL Then I saw instructions for a Halloween candle mat that I thought I could remember how to put together, not. My memory is getting old. Here is the result of relying on memory.
Doesn't look to bad from the top but what a mess on the bottom.
I have another one ready to try after I review the instructions.
