Dare I say It!



I prefer to Instagram!
Warning Photo overload

Over the past several months it has been easier to hang out on Instagram. Having two businesses plus adding in everyday life, I have been slacking on the blogging world. Truth be told it is just takes less time, with one click to Instagram and Facebook---- ta-da....... posted!

I am sure all of you that are on Instagram realize the convenience this little gem of social media offers!  However with that being said I do like the detailed posts and selection of photos that blogging offers that makes it more personal.

Since many read this and have not joined the I/G world yet I am going to bring my life quilty life up to date with just the sewing and quilting related I/G photos. There are several personal photos there too but you can check that out on I/G. Also the captions for these photos are on I/G too.

I am zipper challenged! This is my last attempt to make a hexagon shaped project bag! πŸ˜œπŸ”«πŸ™ I hope it works.

Tonight is our guilds Thanksgiving meeting. It is a heartfelt night where members present CASA with quilts for children in need. #CAMACO #camacoquiltguild #casa #fromtheheart #wecare #groupofgreatwomen #lovequiltpanels


A little while back I posted that I was incorporating money (bills) in a retreat challenge quilt. So here it is. We were assigned two letters- mine where H & M. The challenge was to include two items starting with those letters . Mine included a Hexagon/Heart and Mauve/Money. So won't you know it-- I forgot this piece at home! 😜 #camacoretreat #camacoquiltguild #quiltchallenge  #forgotathome #lancasterpa

Just completed 26 pillowcases for kids with cancer. One for each year we have been blessed to have our son in our lives (he had a brain tumor at the age of 13). #conkerrcancer #kidswithcancer #givingback #payingitforward #solucky #wishicoulddomore #childrenshospital

Here is our guilds "MasterPiece Challenge". We grouped into 4-picked a artwork-divided it into 4 parts and each one did 4 of that section. We exchanged our sections and constructed our own piece.
