WIP Wednesday ~ Learning & Doing

Lots of WIP going on in the studio right now. This is a good thing though because these cuties are ALL finally back in school and I have a few hours of quiet sewing a day! For the first time ever I will have each of my boys in a different school 6th – 9th – 3rd.  Three new starting and ending times.  It’s going pretty well so far, but I really need to sit down and work on my daily schedule! {Read More}

WIP Wednesday – A Tote, A Bitty Box & Applique ladies

WIP Wednesday ~ The 1718 Coverlet QAL ~ February Blocks

I am a huge antique-er (is that a word?).  I have many old pieces of furniture, art, and assorted goodies in my home with stories to tell.  So when I first heard Susan Briscoe released a book called The 1718 Coverlet I knew I had to look it up.  This book shares the history of a 69 block beauty, which is said to be the the oldest dated British patchwork coverlet. After I purchased the book I read it. And re-read it.  This coverlet {Read More}
