Time to relax!

Well, I survived the busyness of the last two weeks!

I plan on relaxing today :)

I had a lot of fun speaking at the Oxford County Quilters' Guild this week....where you present your trunk show twice!...Once on the Wednesday evening and then again on the Thursday morning.

Such a great group of quilters, they surely made my job easier with their wonderful energy.

.....and I had good support, with Gail from The Cozy Quilter coming to cheer me on....

and a quilty friend attending on the Thursday morning for moral support!

By the way, the quilt in the background is the Guild's current raffle quilt...which, if I remember correctly, will be raffled at their upcoming quilt show in 2019.

I hesitate to plan a goal for One Monthly Goal this month, as it seems the month is already marching on. I've missed posting it on time, but I may as well go ahead. Maybe it will help me accomplish my goal!

I need a new Christmas tree skirt. I started one very early this year and was hurrying at it. The result?....a poor start! It would be nice to get this done for Christmas, but it will be a stretch. Luckily it is a pattern that I've had a lot of practice with over the years.

Here is my start...which I have to rip out a bit and fix...

Sorry for the poor quality picture, but it's quite a grey day here...and a bit snowy to boot!

I came across something interesting that I may try in 2019....something I've never heard of but is evidently a thing....a Temperature Quilt. 

You can read all about it HERE at Elm Street Quilts.

I am linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I Get A Whoop Whoop?, and with Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or Not Friday.


  1. You did a wonderful trunk show and I loved seeing all of your quilts in person! Hope to see you again soon!

  2. I am making a temperature quilt! I use hexagons, each week makes a little rosette. Very fun. A78mandel at yahoo dot com

  3. So nice to see you spreading your knowledge and joy of quilting.
    I checked out the temperature quilt that you mentioned. It sounds intriguing. I like the idea of using hexagons but I wasn't sure how to arrange them. The suggestion above from Annette looks like a solution. Something to think about.
