Where did the time go?

My little holiday has flown by and now it’s back to the office.

I feel like I didn’t accomplish a lot but I did get some much needed rest, some outside time and of course some quilting.

The Elizabeth Quilt is well underway, I still need to cut out and piece the setting blocks which shouldn’t take too long and then add the border, maybe one evening this week. I still need to play with the block positions before put the top together, I just wanted to lay the blocks out today to show Alva when she came by to show me her latest blocks..and I’ll be sharing pictures of that quilt sooner than later I’m sure.

Alva also brought me a beautiful surprise


This is my moms Thimbleberry quilt from a couple of years ago that I quilted for her over the winter. I need to take better pictures next time I’m over, as the lighting wasn’t the best. But these pictures show some of the quilting.

My mom and my daughter Katie 2 very creative ladies, this is one of several pictures that I took during our Easter dinner at my parents and I really like the expressions that I captured.


My dad was interested in my new camera and had me take a picture of the bird feeder in full zoom, from inside the house and about 15 ft away. My dad is a wood carver and is very interested in studying birds; I still need to practice using my camera, what a shame that I have to work for a living instead of working on my creative endeavours.

  1. Oh my goodness, I have the Elizabeth Quilt pattern too. Yours is beautiful. What fabric did you use?

    Thank you, the collection is called Rouenneries by French General (MODA fabrics)


  2. I love the Elizabeth pattern! I have never seen it made so this was a treat for me. I took a peek at the one you made before and it’s just a beautiful. I debated on buying that pattern and put it on my wish list. I was super excited when I learned that it will be one of the patterns in her upcoming book (Spice of Life). It’s coming out in May and I have it on my wish list.

    Does your daughter quilt too? What a great treat to have three generations of creative hands in your family. My mom used to crochet when I was young but then never really did much with it, but my daughter is definitely a 2nd generation quilter! I’m a bit proud. 🙂

    I picked up a new camera in January. I love the darn thing and have been shooting pics like crazy.
    What kind of camera did you get?

    Thank you so much, I know that I want both of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co new books they are so tempting.
    My youngest daughter is very creative and is very interested in sewing but so far she hasn’t shown a lot of interest in quilting, but she is only 16.
    I ended up buying the Canon Powershot SX20 its a wonderful camera, not quite a SLR but has so many features for me to enjoy and play with.


  3. I love the quilt Wendy! It’s just beautiful. I love my new camera, but wish I could say the same thing for the software that came with it. To make the pics come out best, I have to shoot in RAW mode, and trying to convert them to JPG without using the faulty program is the pits. I’ve put the software on a PC and will see if it works better that way. Mac does not like Pentax software!


  4. Wendy! Oh my gosh! I love your Elizabeth quilt! As much as I love the original one made with Wuthering Heights, I think I love the Rouenneries version even more. It’s absolutely stunning! I think I might need to make one like this.

    Good job ~ and gee thanks for making me add Rouenneries Elizabeth to my “to do” list. 🙂


  5. Well. Less than a day after seeing your Elizabeth quilt, I have cut up the very last of my Rouenneries stash to make your version of Elizabeth! I haven’t been this excited about a new project since I don’t know when.
    Thanks for the inspiration! As soon as I make a bit of progress on mine, I plan to link to your website, so expect some traffic…


  6. I can’t stop staring at your Elizabeth quilt. It is just gorgeous. I am saving your blog and look forward to seeing it finished.


  7. OH my goodness…love your Elizabeth quilt…the colours, the pattern…yum! I might have to put that on my “to-do” list!
