Civil War Battle of Lexington






More pictures from our weekend in Missouri. These are from Lexington,MO. The Anderson House was used as a hospital and through the trees you can see the Missouri River. The Battle of Lexington took place here during the Civil War. The house still shows where it was hit with cannon balls and bullets. I was also lucky enough to see Maggie Bonanomi at her studio The Purple Turnip. She was teaching a workshop and I was so excited to talk to her I forgot to take a picture. I did however buy some beautiful hand-dyed wool.

Model trains and grandkids-good times!



Went to Kansas City to see the grandkids this weekend and took them to Union Station to see the model train exhibit. Amazing details in this exhibit.

Back from Market





We are back from Spring Quilt Market and caught up on the shipping. I find that I return from market energized and with so many new ideas-now just need more hours in the day! Here are pics of the booth showcasing my new fabric line with RJR Fabrics. Redwork meets Bluework was very well received. Along with the new projects was the current BOM Letters Home. The last pic is the stitched ornaments designed with a Scandinavian theme. It was my way of honoring the area-many early settlers of the region came from the Scandinavian countries.  We were in Minneapolis, MN.

Retreat with friends!

I spent a great weekend quilting with ladies from the Country Rose Quilt Guild. I was one of 10 ladies that started the group many years ago. Now that I live close again I am happy to be "home". It was great to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones. I look forward to a fun year.

Love it when people share!

Thanks to Suzanne Adler from Centerville, MA who participated in our first Legacy Club Little Big Quilts. She used brighter fabrics in her quilt. I love the black inside border print. It always makes me smile when I see what people do with my designs. It is not too late to sign up for this year's Legacy Club Letter's Home. You can follow the Love Story of Lizzy and Ian. The list of participating shops is on the website atwww.makingalegacy.com
Thanks for sharing Suzanne!

Redwork meets Bluework is here!


I wanted to give you a peek at my new fabric line. It is called Redwork meets Bluework. I am busy sewing and stitching for Spring Market. I keep having new designs popping into my head as I sew.
I should have gotten a bigger booth-maybe? There are some traditional patterns along with holiday ones. Some pieced and some involve simple embroidery. There are also some surprises. Stay posted!
This line will be available to the shops to order soon.
