    I’m agreeing with you that if Dominic shows up, sewing can wait! That is how it is around my house when my grand daughter comes for a visit! Your projects are moving along!

    I just love Dominic pictures! He is so precious! Love that Grandma’s Kitchen block, it looks great! I understand that feeling of wanting to just be done already. I get that way with most every QAL! You are doing great sticking it out, and there must only be one block left?? That lantern block is great, and I love the fabric you chose for the lighted part… Is it Grunge? I haven’t done any applique yet. I know I need to, but it just seems rather intimidating to me still. I think I want to start with an orange peel applique, the kind where you sew it with SF101 and then turn it right side out and fuse it down. That seems easier to me at this point. Maybe in 2018!! Happy sewing this week, and enjoy that sweet baby!

      Hi Christine,
      There are 25 blocks in this QAL. Ugg. Too long, but I am trying to stick it out. The lantern is from stash . . . it may be Grunge but it is probably MUCH older than that. HAHA The appliquéd stuff isn’t really hard; it’s more putsy. Trace the piece on the iron-on stuff, iron it on, cut it out, iron it to the actual piece and then buttonhole or stitch around it nice and slow. It is great for some people, or once and a while. I guess I now know I prefer piecing much more! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. That little Dominic is PRECIOUS! And unlike your sewing projects, babies don’t wait for us — they keep growing up when we’re not looking! I’m curious about your microwave cozies. I’ve never heard of those before and I couldn’t figure out from the picture how they are used??

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Rebecca!
      Thank you for the sweet comments about Dominic – he is growing like a weed. The cozies are used for warming up food in the microwave. They have to be made with 100% cotton items – polyester thread will catch on fire. I’ve got a tutorial posted on our website about how I make them, and better pictures. We made a bunch for D’s baby shower as gifts. ~smile~ Roseanne

    The animal quilt will be so cute. One cute quilt for one extra adorable Dominic! Your GK block looks fine, we can get to nit picky! Actually I’ll be glad to finish that particular quilt along too, not as enamoured with it as I had hoped. Oh Well, lesson learned!

    • Roseanne says:

      You are spot on – I am my worst critic. Who really cares in the long run – I’m not entering it for judging. These two QALs may be my first and last. We’ll see – and lesson learned. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Cindy says:

    You are such a busy lady. I hope you are able to accomplish all of your goals. Perhaps I will be as productive as you hope to be. Love the photos of Dominic!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Cindy,
      There never seems to be enough time for quilting, especially at this time of year. I was happy to put the cozies for my SIL in the mail yesterday – phew. Met that goal with time to spare. And thanks for tolerating Dominic – he just lights up my world. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. I would share all the Dominic pictures you want – he’s so darn cute who can resist looking at his pic?? Not me!

  7. Mr. D’s pictures are always welcome and I look forward to them. I understand about the GK quilt along. I found myself not enjoying the I Wish You A Merry QAL and I decided to continue to save the patterns but drop out for a while. I just do not enjoy applique and the more I try it, the more I do not like it. Sometimes we just have to give up something that is not bringing us joy and do more of the things that do.

    • Roseanne says:

      Aww, Peggy! That’s a great way to look at it. We may not be making any more of either QAL – depends on if we like the blocks or not. They are just going on so long . . . with too many other things to do! Thanks for enjoying D! I certainly do . . . ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. He is a cutie patootie!! And growing like a weed! I think we had a bit of icy conditions overnight Friday night, but we didn’t go out in it so it didn’t matter to us. Your bowl cozies look so cute all stacked up. Good luck on this week’s list.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      It was nuts getting home on Friday! There was an accident at the IL/WI border and then another one closer to home. I gave up and got off on the surface roads, only to find a few more. I was glad to get home! I really want to get that quilt finished this week. ~smile~ Roseanne
      P.S. I want an update on that last craft fair and how you did!

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
