a NEW project finished


Happy Wednesday! Whewhoo!  My quilt project is finally finished!  It’s was supposed to be for my DIL’s b-day (in April…she got a gift card instead).  I decided I’d for sure have this done before her next b-day!  :o)  Yet, now I don’t think I can wait that long to give it to her!

So…onto another NEW project.  What should it be??? Hmmmm, decisions, decisions.  I’ll let you know soon.  Have a great day!  Do or learn something NEW!

a NEW finished quilt


Happy Tuesday!  Today I thought I’d simply share my NEW quilt that I just finished over the weekend.  I tried something NEW…I used spray-on basting adhesive.  My review is mixed…it stuck the three layers together well, but I had a few puckers that were hard to get out.  It was probably me – just being a newbie, but I’m not sure I’ll use it again.  Because, if I spend my precious time sewing quilt blocks together, I want it to be as perfect as possible, and I’m not sure I’m willing to invest the ‘learning curve’ time on any future quilts. 🙂  This is a crib-size quilt, so I’m just tucking it away for the future.  (Yes, I’m PATIENTLY waiting for grand-babies!)

Have a great day!  Do or Learn something NEW!

a NEW project finished, yeah!


Yeah! My NEW pull-out ironing board project is finished!  When I blogged about my NEWly organized laundry room, I mentioned the ironing board wasn’t quite finish, but now it is!  It pulls out….it swivels….then when I’m done with it, it is OUT OF SIGHT!  Love it!

I was ironing a section of a small quilt I made by trying a NEW item:  a Jellyroll!


After burning out piecing together my last quilt, I decided I’d try these pre-cut coordinating fabric strips.  Much easier!!!  I’ll show you the finished product after I get it all quilted and bound.

So, what’s NEW with you?  Hope you all had a great Memorial Day!….and hope you all learn or do something NEW today!
