Welcome to In The Boon Docks!
Hello Hoppers, I am Lisa and I am happy show you what I made for todays blog hop!
But before I begin I would like to thank Madam Samm,Sew We Quilt, our truly wonderful Leader and Lana, It Seams To Be Sew, our Head Cheerleader. Madam Samm runs everything, thinking up what hops to do, finds sponsors, promotes and invites us in, keeps us motivated months in advance, and assigns talented cheerleaders.

Selfish Sewing Spring 2015/Le Challenge

Hello Everyone, I am so excited to participate in Selfish Sewing Week Spring 2015. Today I am sharing with you my new shirt made by me out of quilting cotton! You see I have never made myself any garments and have been intimidated by the thought. For 2 years I have listed one as a goal to complete a garment for myself, goal met! Hoot hoot! Years ago, I tried to make a shirt and ended up throwing it away half cutout. All the little markings confused me then.
But with a wee bit of help I actually sewed it up pretty easily
(patting myself on the back)!

Pattern: Bess Top
Designer: Imagine Gnats (Rachael Gander)
Get it Bess Top Printed Pattern (here)andDigital (here)
Fabric: Botanics design #14258, Carolyn Friedlander, Robert Kaufman (Quilting Cotton)
Aurifil Thread: #4093 (perfect match)
I love how Aurifil colors always match the designers fabrics.
They have a color for everything!

Cutting the pattern out, taping, and pinning it together, was quite simple. (Shock on my face) This we…

ALYOF - March 2015 Goal

I enjoy meeting up with the other bloggers
twice a month for
A Lovely Year Of Finishes!
Setting a goal each month
encourages me to complete
at least one project.

This month maybe hard for many depending were you live!
I hope all of you are safe and warm.

Hubby and I left home early to go to
a quilting retreat and have had lovely accommodations
at Cliffview Resort
But we got snowed in and the retreat
didn't happen! The roads re blocked but we are trying to go home today!
You may not here from me for a little while our power is out!

while it stormed outside Randy and I had a wonderful time with a resort all to ourselves. You can see here Cliffview Resort guided tour!

I will be digging in myCotton and Steel Stashduring the month of March!

I am here suppose to be sewing so I decided I better work on the mini for my partner for the Cotton and Steel Mini Quilt Swap onInstagram! If you are on Instagram - I would truly appreciate it if you would follow me, I am at 499 followers currently. Jus…

Show Me Your Stash

Show Me Your Stash

Everywhere lately I see "Show Me Your Stash" and frankly I am a little embarrassed to show anyone my stash. But last night after seeing a Craftsy Giveaway#SecretStash Contest! I decided to take some pictures and label it my Secret Stash and share it with my friends around the world!

Every time you see photos of a famous quilter's sewing room, fabric stash, threads, or even their bookcase everything is nice and neat. Nothing out of place and spotless! I would spend more time cleaning than sewing.

This from the woman who does even have a sewing room! I sew on the kitchen table, taken it over really! Don't get me wrong I admire and love all these ladies! I also admire their beautiful collections!

I love my stash just as much and you should love yours too!
Whether it is big or small kept in a trash bag,
don't be afraid to show what you have.
Work with what you have!

To enter the Craftsy Giveaway, just take a great picture or several of your sta…
