Trinket Sew Along Week 1 Blocks

The Trinket Sew Along started last week. If you click on the link you can find out all about it and where to get the pattern!  The picture above is the look I am striving to achieve, with some variations of course.  I did decide to use Moda Grunge for the background instead of gray I am going with the Grunge Black!

Each day Monday - Friday you post that days block!

I am making 3 blocks for each day! 
The FPP (foundation paper piecing) blocks are not hard or time consuming!
A pattern even a beginner can do!

I am using Alison Glass fabrics I have collected over the years. 
But you can use any fabrics you like!

Most of my block are made from 5” charm squares!

Lines #4 is my favorite block for Week 1!
If you need help with FPP search the site in the search block. 
 I have tips and tricks. 
Have a look in my toolbox!

Quilters Planner 2019

Are you planning your Quilty year yet?

There are 2 cover choices and are available here The Quilters Planner or at Fat Quarter Shop

The front - I used the Mini Kwik Sparkler I made last year! The EPP pattern by Karie Jewell. You can purchase her patterns at 
Karie Jewell to make your own Mini Kwik Sparkler! 

I love Alison Glass Road trip so of course I had to use it! Keep me happy all year! The planner cover pattern is available called the 
Zippy Planner Cover by @whatthebobbin is free!

I used the pattern but put the zipper on the back! It is a great planner and even has a sew along! So get yours and I’d love to see how you decorate your own!

Happy New Years

Happy New Years! 

Welcome to 2019
Word for 2019: Finish

My Top Nine on Instagram

Our family has had a rough year and 

Lilly was so excited to get a new baby doll just like the one she lost!

She carries it everywhere now!

Family bonding has been good for both girls and their mother!

I am praying 2019 
will be easier on all of us.

The Go Fund Me Page for 
Our daughter and grandchildren is still open.
We are praying everything will work out for a 
small house a few miles down the road.
Thank all you for being generous and loving!
So many have already pitched in to help!

But they will need new or used everything! 
No amount is to small!
They need your continued Prayers!
Thank you and Happy 2019!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas 

As I await the arrival of of my daughters and grandchildren for Christmas I am grateful that all of them are in good health considering the year they have had!  Both girl have suffered losses in jobs, cars, and homes! It could have been much worse and I pray that 2019 will be a much better year! Everything lost can be replaced but they cannot! 

I pray that your holidays are filled with love and laughter!

If you find in the New Year you can afford to help Ashley and the girls recover from the fire that destroyed everything please give to the Go Fund Me page I setup!

Merry Christmas and thank you, Lisa
