Chatty Woolie + A Slide Show

Well I have gotten a lot of responses to the posting of Anne's Homespun Houses.  I know that it has spurred me on to try and get mine done before much desire and so little concentration, lol.

The pattern is located in this book.  No, this book isn't one of  Lisa's at Primitive Gatherings and it is out of print but you can find copies for sale on line.  Try Amazon.  It is a wonderful book filled with many great projects!

Has anyone else been having a hard time quilting because the weather is sooooo dang beautiful!  I have been trying but my attention span for quilting is a nano second...well, a little bit longer.  I have been dropping into bed each night and falling sound asleep.  I have to tell you I have found out an interesting sister told me a while ago that some of the problems that we have with our necks/headaches has to do with the use of pillows when sleeping.  While sleeping on her back she does not use a pillow...when she turns on her side she uses the pillow.  While we were in Chicago at a hotel I couldn't do it...but, here at home on my Temperpedic Bed I have been doing it for a week...and guess what?!  No neck pain from stitching/cutting or sewing.  It feels weird at first but I can tell that without a pillow my head, neck and spine are in alignment!  I think I will have many more years of stitching ahead of me!

Enjoy the slideshow of quilts made my Janie Adams of Bend, Oregon.  She comes from a family of people who love to sew and craft. Upon retiring in 2006 she really jump started her quilting.

The photo below is from a Telamadera Fusion class Janie took from Alma de la Melena Cox.  Wish you could see it in person...absolutely beautiful!
