Week of Nov 19

My to do list this week.

Quilting:  I don’t know what will be able to put my hands on.  We are moving and most of our things are in storage.  Somethings I did store in friends garage, but i don’t remember what I put in it.  I will go and rummage around in the garage this weekend.  Update. Found Matthew’s Ohio Star Quilt.  Will cut and sew two borders. 

Embroidery:  I would like to continue working on the flower I started.  My plans are to work the arched portion. I am only setting myself baby steps. That way I will be able to finish them.


My 4 month old grandson Lincoln is learning to roll over. He is so much fun.

Hello Again

I needed a rest.  So I took one.

I love spending time with my husband, looking at pictures with my children, playing with our grandbabies, talking with my friends, digging in the garden, crafting and caravaning.  This means I have to reorganize few things.

 The blogs that I follow, I now follow on Bloglovin.  I find this easier for me.  I plan on reading blogs again and responding.  Also make lists.  Lists help me. I find when lists are made, things get done.

Quilts that need to be finished.  So far there are 11 that are listed on the PROJECTS TO BE FINISHED page above.  In 2018 the plan is to finish 8 of them. If more are finished that will be a blessing. But my plan is for 8 of them to be crossed off my list.  Belonging to a sewing group on Tuesdays, I think that will help alot. It will stimulate me to get sewing again.

Embroideries also need to be finished. At the moment,  know where two are.  That is enough for me right now. Don’t think I will look for more right now. I belong to a lovely group of ladies who get together on Wednesdays that mainly embroider. So I am reserving that day for my hand embroidery.




My Beautiful Granddaughter Katie lost her first tooth.


Blessings,                                                                                                                                                        Kathleen

Kaleidoscope BOM

For some time now I have been looking for a BOM.

I wanted a BOM that I did not have to think to much about.

That means I wanted what I considered the difficult part to be done for me.

Choosing the colors and the fabric.

I attended a few different craft fairs and could not find one.

While reading blogs I click on any links found in the notes that referr to quilting shops.

After visiting many links, I found a perfect BOM.

It is called Old Time Kaleidoscope, found at

I am in love. Perfect colors. Perfect design. Perfect material. Perfect directions.

What more can I ask for.  I am in sewing heaven.

It is a EPP design. It has only one design shape, the kite.

With cleverly placed kites, the kaleidoscope comes to life.

The remark from my husband was “WOW”. So it really must be stunning.


Sorry I can not highlight the link. I am on my notebook and have not yet figured out how to.

Please go to and have a good look around.

Happy Sewing Hugs,

Kathleen Mary
