I'm A Winner!

When Shelly Pagliai notified me that she had drawn my name for her new book "A Simple Life", I was thrilled. For the last few years Shelly has written a blog about daily entries in her mother's diary written in the 1950's. I had followed it and really got a kick out of it, being a child of the '50's myself, I could relate to many of the things her mother, Hazel Ilene wrote about. The book has some really nice quilt patterns in it, along with some of the diary entries and lots of family pictures.

Shelly also has a web site that I think you would enjoy looking at. It's called Prairie Moon Quilts, there are lots of good things there and I know you will love checking it out. Be sure and check out Hazel Ilene's Diary, recipes, free patterns and even shopping at her Etsy shop!! I'll talk to you later, I am going to push back in the recliner and read more of my new quilt book from Shelly.  Sew until next time, have a Stitches kind of day!!

I'm Back...for a Little Bit

Boy, I have been MIA for a long time!!  I hope to do better in the future but sometimes I just don't have any thing to write about!  This is a recent picture of Josie Sue, my first great grandchild. She was here last weekend to visit and she is growing like a weed. And she is getting cuter by the month, according to my prejudice thinking..Since I last talked to you, I have added another great grandchild to look forward too, now there are 3 more coming in 2016. I made Josie a quilt so I am trying to find some more easy patterns to get started on the next three baby quilts..these babies are just coming too fast and furious. Here are a few pictures of the quilt and Josie. She was baptized in her mom's bapti
smal dress, hand crocheted, it is beautiful!!

This was an easy and fun quilt to make, it has Minky on the back of it..Sew until next time, have a Stitches kind of day!!
