ALYOF November 2015 Goal

A Lovely Year Of Finishes-October Goal Welcome Everyone!Well once again I feel like the year is zipping by and leaving me behind in a big way! Christmas is on it's way and of course I'm not ready. I have been buying for months and have it all crammed in my Fabric Stash Closet, no one opens that door! So it is safe from prying eyes! Do you hide gifts among your stash? My goal for October 2015 is to make a quilt out of Nomad, by Urbin Chiks, for Moda and a light blue Kona Solid. I really love the design patterns with the feathers and this print with a fox. The quilt will be for my cousin and his wife for Christmas! The only thing is we have Christmas each year with their family at Thanksgiving. So I better get busy to have it ready in time. My cousin is like my little brother and I feel so blessed to have him in my life. He helped me so much last year when my husband was sick. He always makes me feel so good about what I am making because he wants the them not a store bo…

Dear Readers

I have provided two seam rippers to Lisa
so she can have one and one to give away.

They are both made from beautiful old growth oak which was reclaimed from the original train depot in Weston (Lewis County), West Virginia. Train service was established in Weston around 1880. This wood is representative of a great part of my passion for this venture in woodworking for me – that is finding wood with a story to it. I must admit that my main focus is pens and pencils but it really doesn’t matter what I am making as long as it is from wood (although I have recently added pens made of …

MAIL eeEK

Look what was in my mailbox today, I thought I joined a Flickr Group and forgot about it. I was scared until I looked and saw it was from Tasmania, Australia where Rie lives. It is beautiful! Her blog is Crafty Rie she is one of the most talented knitter, crocheter, spinner, I have talked to online since I started blogging. You should take a look at her blog she made the coolest fish I have ever seen. I met her through a blog hop, which is a great way to find new blogs and meet new people online. I sent her some yarn and needles I had picked up at an estate sale because it was a half finished something with connected knitting needles and I had no idea how to finish it. My thought was she would know what to do with it. Of course, she did and sent it back for my granddaughter that is due in January. I never expected that! It bring me to tears. It makes me so happy to be apart of something. Such nice like minded people in the blogging community. Rie you are a treasure! She also…
