What does a 7 year old do with a box and tape ? Why make some armor of course. He wants to go out an play Nerf guns with the neighbor but it is only 7 am.

Did I mention he used an entire roll of scotch tape?

I LOVE Dr Seuss. I fussy cut the sashings on two quilts to make the best use of the fabrics. So, I used these two quilts for @duringquiettime #fussycutfun #missingmarket challenge. @gogokim @thesewingloft

Ok this may be corny but this bolt of fabric from Moda Fabrics #showmethemoda is something I cannot bring myself cut. It has an element of nostalgia that is near and dear to me. So, this is my choice for #myprecious challenge by @persimondreams for #missingmarket @gogokim @thesewingloft

My #favoritequiltblock for @yardgrl60 #missingmarket challenge is a carpenter star block. Each member of the family made eleven blocks to swap with each other and made a quilt to honor Andee's husband Tony. He was a wonderful husband and father. @gogokim @thesewingloft

I had to think about @lillyellasworld #sewingwithoutboundries #missingmarket challenge. EPP projects are outside my comfort zone. @minickandsimpson Lake Effect quilt is stunning and I will PUSH my limits and make this beautiful quilt someday soon. @gogokim @thesewingloft

I made a Jo Morton's "Jo's Little Women" Club 11 my own by combining all her mini quilts into one queen size quilt. This is My #sewaddedcharm challenge for #missingmarket @gogokim @thesewingloft

My @katebasti #whatthewip for #missingmarket challenge photos are of the literally dozens of WIPs from 20 years of quilting. I am afraid to pull them all out of hiding. I do have a plan to finish them all now that retirement is upon me.

I save all scraps bigger than 1" meaning I have piles. I made this notebook cover several years ago and carry it daily. Just makes me happy! @minickandsimpson Prairie Paisley #showmethemoda is one of my all time favorite lines.
For my #missingmarket @thesewingloft #scraphappens challenge I chose to picture this book cover. @gogokim

I had to have my sister pull the car over to take a picture of me dancing for the #domesticboogaloo #missingmarket challenge hosted by @misterdomestic himself. Too fun @gogokim and @thesewingloft

My favorite minies for #sewminime for the #missingmarket challenge hosted by @sewsweetness are the quilts that I made from Moda's Mini Marvels fabric by French General. @gogokim, @thesewingloft

Today's #missingmarket challenge is to show you my sewing studio/sanctuary #whereisew . It has fabulous natural light and it's own half bath so I don't have to leave the space unless I am hungry or tired. @gogokim, @thesewingloft
I display all my favorite #sowmethemoda lines in little boxes.

Ok I am playing along with @gogokim and @thesewingloft for #missingmarket. 5 things to get to know me are: 1. I am an identical twin with @aandriole and have 3 other sisters, @mahquilter, @cae3540, and @gerigallo. 2. Geri does not sew, not even buttons. My other sisters and I have been known to write quilt patterns under Sisters' Quilting Trunk. 3. I recently (yesterday) stopped working and can now spend more time quilting. 4. I like crime TV shows.5. I would prefer to be 10 to 15 minutes late for anything but my husband needs to be early for everything, too early in fact.

Hard to see and very grainy but there were two large road runners on my walk today that crossed my path. They were gone like a flash before I could get my cell phone out to take their picture.

Beautiful flowers from my team. It's bosses day and while I am not their boss any more they sent me these to brighten my day.

Several years ago, like 25, I met a lovely lady at work. Through the years we became cherished friends. When I moved to a new job she was my first hire, 3 times. I am embarking on a new adventure, leaving a job that defined/consumed a big part of my life for the last 16 years. As I am unpacking the dreaded box from work, the Jim Shore Quilt Angel she bought me is now proudly displayed in my quilt studio. I did not get to bid her farewell on my last day in the offline, because she is on vacation. I don't want to call her and spoil her last few days. So, I will drive to see her next week on the day she returns. We will be sad and cry but I am sure she will be excited for what the future holds. We always thought we would share a retirement party. Oh well, the best laid plans often don't pan out.

I think I will take a few weeks off before deciding what my next adventure will be. I am already planning several quilts projects and will have more time to share pictures and maybe start designing again. Wish me luck my IG friends!

40 years ago today we walked down the aisle and said our I dos. I truly love this man. We are so blessed to share our life together. Here's to another 40!

Thank you April, @amrosenthal and @prairiegrasspatterns, for the Meadowbloom jelly roll and the extra surprise! I can't wait to make beautiful quilts. I will post pictures as soon as I start them. I may be late to the jelly roll party but will finish strong! #showmethemoda

My granddaughter Lily is being inducted into the National Junior Honor Society tonight. Such a proud Grandma!

Holy cow! You are not going to believe how fabulous this month's @fatquartershop @sewsamplerbox

OMG Happy mail! I am SEW excited! All my favorite fabric lines! My husband watched me open the box like it was Christmas. He said the tins would be perfect in his new garage to hold screws and bolts and things. I told him he has a screw loose! I need them to hold thread and buttons and templates for my EPP projects! #showmethemoda

Oh yeah! Another great sampler! @fatquartershop @sewsamplerbox

Rows done for a quilt for my great niece. She wanted a grey, black and white quilt. WEEDS by @meandmysisterdesigns fit that requirement perfectly. #showmethemoda . Adam's Rib pattern by Tony Jacobson @fonsandporter Easy Quilts Magazine Summer 2013

If you did not get your @fatquartershop @sewsamplerbox package I can tell you that you will be sew excited when you do! Well done!

Arrrgggg! Assembling my quilt and checking to make sure I followed my own directions. Welp I didn't! Now I need to stop and make the correction.
