Irish Snowflake Quilt

I have been busy in my craft room this week sewing with my beloved Janome Memory Craft 14000 sewing machine. I call her Scarlett! Anyway, this week I pieced this Iris Snowflake quilt together. It can be used for a tree skirt or table top. I just love how it came together! It just needs the batting, back, binding and quilted. Check out the points!


Happy crafting!


My Craft Room Organized

Today, I am sharing a video of my craft room. This stay at home time has allowed me to get my space organized. Please know that It has taken years to accumulate all of these items as it didn’t just happen overnight.

Do you have a special place that you create, read or meditate? I would love to see!

Happy crafting,


Cookie Jars & Cookies!

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie? I know they are well loved in our home. My sweet hubby can’t get enough of my dark chocolate chip walnut cookies! They are quite good indeed!
The best part of making cookies though is filling up those gorgeous cookie jars! I love cookie jars, both vintage and newer ones. It’s one of those things that just makes me smile!

Here are a couple of my cookie jars that have found a home in my kitchen. My son gave me the Pillsbury Dough Man jar many years ago (probably 20 or so); and the bird cookie jar I got a few months ago. Aren’t they just adorable? And yes, they look even better when they are filled with yummy cookies!
I hope you have enjoyed this post and inspired to bake some yummy creations in your kitchen.

Happy baking!


Sewing Masks

Since the outbreak of COVID19 I Started making masks for my family members. Overall, I have sewn over 35 masks! It is quite the job when you have to create your own ties. Since elastic is nowhere to be found you can make ties out of binding strips. Here are some of my creations!

Stay safe and happy crafting.


Happy Easter! Christ is Risen!

What a glorious day it is to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Father, Jesus Christ! I hope you spent some time today to reflect on his sacrifice for us.

This year I created Easter cards with the Cala lily collection from Heartfelt Creations. The Cala Lilley’s were a lot of fun to make. I just love how they turned out!


Have a wonderful Easter!


Happy New Year 2020!

I am looking forward to a successful and crafty New Year for 2020.  I want to learn more about free motion quilting and machine embroidery.  Those items are on my list of things to do for this year.  I also plan to get back to doing some scrapbooking and downloading pictures that have been sitting in the cloud.  I am sure we all can relate to that.

Finally, I plan to strive to become healthier this year.  My plan is to exercise more and try some new healthy recipes.  My goal is to eat less meat and ramp up on fruits and veggies!  Getting my hubby to eat less meat will probably be the challenge!

This morning I made my traditional New Year’s Day turnip greens.  They are so delicious and I do make them without any meat products.

I always dice some jalapeño and cook with them. So Yummy!

I am also cooking Swedish meatballs with egg noodles. Supposedly noodles bring lots of luck throughout the year.

Have a great day!
