I have to share this link, it has some great tutorials, I even ran across one on Cathedral Window.  I have one that my grandmother made years ago, and want to make one myself one day, maybe will start soon, it is so pretty and will make me feel like Grandma is with me while I make it.  She passed away in 1993.  Here's the link:

FNSI results

As usually happens with me, my Friday night sewing continued on Saturday.  I sewed as long as I could, got really sleepy and watched Mulberry on public TV with the fam.  I love Mulberry, watched it in the early 90's with my mom, who had watched it with her mom before that. 

I am so happy with my Town Square.  It was really hard, except for a few little places that don't quite match up, it looks great.  I have so much fabric left I could make another couple of rows for the top and bottom and have a really nice couch quilt.

I forgot about it!  I just signed up. The baby is asleep now, so I will be sewing earlier and not later.  Working my my Town Square, will post whatever progress I manage to make in the a.m.  Happy Sewing!

Happy Valentine's Day!

The weather has warmed up, and snow has melted away, just in time for a sunny happy Valentine's Day.  I hope it is a great one for you too:)  Can you tell we have children in the house?

I was snowed in today

Look at the lovely snow we got yesterday and last night!  this is part of the backyard between our house and the house next door. 

This is the view from the kitchen, see the bird feeder, we love to watch the birds and squirrels eat there.  We don't usually get this much snow.  It was too powdery to build a snowman, we did try.

I made cinnamon rolls, read a book, napped with the baby, and got my Triple Rail Fence ready for borders.  I really love this quilt.

Sneak peek for my Block Swap Adventure partner

I think I managed to get all the colors Charlene likes, most of them anyway, blue, green and cream.  I hope she likes it!

My machine is working again!

I remembered my poor little neglected Triple Rail Fence and started working on that again.  My machine tension still wasn't quite right, so I played with that and added some more rails.  I'm so happy I figured out what was wrong with the machine and got it nice and clean also!  A clean machine means a happy sewer for sure.
