About Me

My photo
Shoreline, CT, United States
I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Tuesday, April 4, 2017


All 12 plates are done...I'll need to re-arrange them, of course, but my shoulders would not allow me to reach up to do it this morning..;000.
Now I can remove them and work on cutting the backing squares and centers....

In the meantime, my leader-ender Star is coming along too;)))
                    They are just rising and you can see swathes of pinks from the sunsetting..

All of these fabrics are LEFTOVERS...strips and strings, bits and bobs...I have separated them into two baskets and am
cutting as I go...
I think you can see the star points in this smaller picture....so loving this type of sewing...
                     ("String along with me, I'm on my way to the Stars...") .
{File under Songs for All Occasions....}lol

Rain, rain and more rain here; our chimney is leaking a little onto my little bookcase that houses all my "STUFF" in our tv room...we will have to call our guy to come and re-caulk it...not too bad though, and nothing damaged as I was up early and able to put out a bowl to catch the drips...
But, it's always something, right?? could be worse....;))))

Hugs to all of you,
Julierose, La Blageuse (Star shine-euse)

  8. Love the dresdens. I have a mini hand pieced that I guess falls into the category of UFO! The plates are done. Just need to put on background and assemble. You have inspired me! Think I will pick it back up and finish it. Good luck with the leak. Hope you get it fixed soon. Hugs, Karen
