Studio Summaries

I cut a bunch more of the units for this quilt and then pieced two more.
I have all of the prints now cut out and only need to cut the neutral fabric. 
 The Starry Splendour is off the frame !
 I didn't get to the binding but it will wait for another day!
 And look what I managed to do!!!
I refilled the center of the bird bath;  I was concerned I wouldn't have enough tiles but I had lots left over and that is a good thing!  
I will let the adhesive dry for several days now before I apply the grout.
 I made this little newborn hat on the Superba knitting machine.
If you look in the background, you will see a picture of my niece who is expecting in December and so this little hat will go to her baby!
Until then, this little bear will enjoy sporting it!  
(I had dyed this Hawthorne yarn for a pair of socks last Christmas 
and had enough for the sock blanket 
and now enough for this hat
 and there is still enough for another sock square!  


  1. My goodness yo have been so busy, I am not sure where you fit it all in. I am loving all the knitting and beautiful quilting. It is still hot here, but maybe a inch less humid, or maybe I am creaming. Have a good week.

  2. The new blocks looks like they would be tricky to piece. Love your finished quilt, the repaired bird bath, and the adorable baby hat.

  3. Starry splendor looks amazing!
    And where did you get that little sewing machine tea pot?

  4. The quilts are just so beautiful. I am in awe. The birdbath fix is very pretty. I hope the birds are grateful!
    The hat is precious. Your dye job is just too perfect with those adorable stripes!

  5. Such a relief that the birdbath went back together well — those things are always sketchy! Fun to plan for the newest clan-baby! :)

  6. Just love those quilts!! The blocks in the first picture are really cool... haven't seen them before... xx

  7. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

The irises are everywhere!  So beautiful! The rocks I brought home from Lake Ontario;   mostly granite with jasper, quartz and basalt. Being...
