It Must Be Spring

I've been sitting a my machine trying to sew. But spring has finally arrived here at the lake. The door is open, has been all day. Smells like spring, looks like spring, and I'm really ready!

Joining the Blocks: Quilt-As-You-Go Style
Learn to join pre-quilted blocks using several innovative techniques. Go home ready to make larger machine quilted quilts without all the work of trying to get it into your machine. The Quilt-As-You-Go method allows for more detailed quilting using a standard sewing machine since you're only quilting a small section at a time.

Super Fast Binding and Piping! 
Is binding the quilt your least favorite part?  Bindings and piping are a snap with this no-fail completely machine-stitched method.  In this class you will be making a sample to take home to keep as a ‘how to’ example for your own quilts. Binding will never be the same again!

Quilting Design Ideas

Seems like I'm always working on a new project. Probably because I am. I take lots of pictures all the time. The sanding joke in my family is "film is cheap". (Yes I take digital pics).  Any way I love this idea. I just need to figure out a way to make it work for me.
I must figure out a was to quit these spines with this wonderful back light.

I'd like to add the lines too.

Cafe Turko, Seattle

insideWent here for lunch. Great food, nice people. I had lamb meatballs (the Turkish name escapes me). Be sure to have some humus! They provide a unique environment to dine and enjoy the legendary Turkish tastes and hospitality while smelling the tantalizing aromas coming from the open kitchen.

More Pictures From Arizona

I was reviewing my pictures of Arizona, found some I really think you would you would like. I can't remember for sure but I think these were taken in the botanical garden in Phoenix.
These were the coolest chandeliers ever!

Too Much Tme!

The other night I found myself surfing the net. Something I rarely do. But TV was worse than usual so there I was, sitting on the couch with my trusty tablet. You just got to love some of the stuff you find there. My favorite?
And pink too. I love to paint stuff, but this was the best! I'm thinking about it....
