Sewing in the Rain

It's been a rainy weekend here and while I planned on sewing quite a bit, I only managed to do a little. That was thanks to the bathroom renovation from you know where. When your house is over 40 years old, when you replace one pipe, the one next to it starts to leak, and so on and so on! It was supposed to be done in January-I have hopes it will be done by Easter. We are DIY'ers so we are the ones responsible for the cascade of mishaps that seem to be happening to this reno.

But I did manage to get my most recent quilt project together, except for some borders I am adding to the pattern. This pattern is from Heather Mulder Peterson and what I love about her patterns is that she gives good pressing instructions, so when you get the point of sewing it together, it is easy. It went together like butta! So that's what's going on here. But stay tuned, I have a post planned on an art that not many people do anymore. You'll love it.


  1. I love HMP's patterns and your quilt is looking great. I feel for you on the home renov's, ugh we've done several and I can't say I was thrilled with the process of any of them, but once done it was awesome (and our home is about 60 years old, so I get what you mean about pipes, etc).

  2. Yes, rainy here in CT too! Lots getting done indoors. Sorry about the pipe situation. I love the quilt and I am sure it will look great with borders. Looking forward to the art.

  3. What a gorgeous design! I'm loving the new quilt project and I especially like the bunny quilt in your blog header! sorry about the leaky pipes... good luck!

  4. Ooh cant wait to see what your post is about! I always wanted to do reno's but Gom was no handyman, so we never did. Perhaps it was for the best!

  5. the quilt looks great. oh the bunnies in your header picture are just too cute! good luck with the pipes, I just call the plumber otherwise we might wind up with other problems!!!!!

  6. I like your new quilt and I'm looking forward to seeing what you will use for borders. Hope you get the leaky pipes fixed soon! I really like the bunny quilt in your header. Can you share the pattern name?


  7. What a great pattern to show off large prints. It looks wonderful!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
