I planted some cosmos from seeds this year. They are one of the smallest seeds I have ever seen. But the plants that come from them are HUGE. It takes a long time for them to bloom but will give color until our first frost.

Potholder Fun

I am woefully behind on the wonderful blocks Carol Doak gives those of us on her email group. She has started another BOM and I thought the first one would make a perfect potholder. It went together easily.

I find striped fabric to be a challenge but putting it the other way makes it much easier.

Machine quilting FUN

I have finally reached the point in which free motion quilting is fun. This has been a long journey for me.

I decided to do an Irish Chain in fall colors. I wanted to put a cat motiff in the white part and wanted it to show up. So I used a varigated thread. I knew every single mistake would show up and went carefully.
