Flash Living!

   I stack a row for the quilt and put it by the sewing machine so when I walk by, 
I can seam another pair.
I leave them attached with chain piecing so I don't lose the order.
 I take them to the ironing station still attached so I don't lose all the work of arranging them!
I pressed the seams open on this quilt;  something I do not ordinarily do but it does make the seams
flatter and it was still easy enough to match up the seams.
Look at the pretty blossoms coming out on this plant!
It was given to Bill and he can't remember the name-I think it looks orchid-ish. 
Anyone know?

 (I have been taking Will to Art Camp all week so that accounts for the
title 'cuz I've been coming and going and not always knowing
which was which! lol)


  1. I like your quilt set up, that allows you to do quick Sew-by LOL. Gotta get that crafting in at every opportunity! That flower is beautiful, but I have no idea what it is. Definitely looks orchid-ish though!

  2. I don't know what the flower is, but it sure is pretty.

    I do know, it's not an orchid. Orchids don't have fuzzy stamens and only have two petals and three sepals.

  3. Great way to sneak in some sewing when life gets busy.

  4. That is a great way to organize your piecing!

  5. Maybe you could email that picture to your county extension office to ask what it is — I have done that before and it’s a great way to solve a botanical mystery!

  6. I am not entirely sure, but could it be a belamcandra? no idea what the common name would be though. no matter the name - it's beautiful:)

I dug out several pairs of light weight summer pants that fint when I had the 25lb weight gain last Spring and decided to do some alteration...
