500 Turkeys Project is in the Works.

The top is pieced (table topper). I may still add a border, we'll see. 
It looks like some Kona solid for the backing, possibly sand.

Here's hoping some bidders like the color choices!

Happy Sewing,


Y Seam Practice

FWQAL #47 Homemaker 
provided a refresher on the Y {inset or set-in} seam. 
Use it or lose it, right?

Falling Leaves

Purchased at SPOONFLOWER, a new favorite fabric just arrived! 
Deliciously fall themed 
{plus POLKA DOTS!!},
I'm changing my leaf project to include it.

Happy Sewing,


Farmer's Wife

Another couple FWQAL blocks join the others on the design board this evening. 

I'm loving these Kaffe
Fassett prints. 


Happy Sewing,

decisions, decisions

So....I need to whip up a few fall projects. 

I've been contemplating some fabric combinations and think I have the piles just about right. 

What do you think?

Thanks to the Wandering Stars, I'm leaning towards pile #1 for the fabulous household. =D

Happy Sewing,


A Kaffe Block for the pile

A bit of sewing makes the day so much better.
Just enough time to whip up a FWQAL block & 
find some new Kona for the stash.

Happy Sewing,


2 more FWQAL blocks

I've been playing in the new fabrics & managed 
to whip up a couple of Farmer's Wife blocks this afternoon.

Happy Sewing,


As the weather changes from warm and sunny to rainy and cool here in the midwest, thoughts turn to comforting meals at home with family and the simple things that make life worth living.

To make this possible for some families in our area, Jeni & Anna at Life Bridge Christian Church are coordinating 500 Turkeys. 

Those of you who read my tweets have seen a few mentions of this wonderful project 
but in case you missed it, you'll find details by clicking 500 TURKEYS.  

Jenni & Anna are in need of volunteers, auction items, a few Bunco players {just 15 tickets remaining},
and of course, turkeys and sides. If you're able to, please consider helping this local cause.

Thank you.

Warm Wishes,


Mail Call!

Can you believe it? 

The fabric I just ordered from Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works 
arrived this morning already! 
My mind is swimming with possibilities. Looks like I'll
be whipping up some more FWQAL blocks this week after all.

Now, from what I understand, Jackie is adding even more KF selections
to her site!


Another FWQAL to add to the MiX

FWQAL Block: Strawberry Basket
made for a wonderful Sunday morning of sewing. 

May today be one of many days of service in the US and beyond.
If you haven't found a project to volunteer for, spend a bit of 
your time researching online today. 
Donate your time and talents to a non-profit organization that meets 
the needs of your community every single day of the year.
Make a difference.

Wishing you the very best,


Finally! Farmer's Wife Update

Where does the time go?
It's been quite a while since I've pieced any FWQAL blocks in the Kaffe + basics theme.

Ordering some delicious Kaffe prints from Canton Village Quilt Works in the wee hours of the morning had thoughts of Kaffe Fassett prints dancing in my head through the night.
Wondering what I could come up with using scraps from the stash & taking full advantage of a day off today...

I found time to catch up with Mr. Fabulous & make 2 easy quick blocks to add to the little stack of completed blocks. 

Happy Sewing,


a little quick sewing

Some quick hexies whipped up this evening...

to add to the growing pile. 

There's nothing quite like a bit of sewing to make my day.

Enjoy your Labor Day.

Happy Sewing,
