Hi Everyone! Well, Autumn is in full swing here in New England and it truly is just the most beautiful time of year! I worked on this Autumn quilted wall-hanging this week. This is the first time that I have quilted applique... I wasn't sure I liked it at first but have decided that I do! I blanket stitched the applique first and then used the free motion quilt 'stipple' pattern (Love that because there is no wrong way to do it!) If you look closely at the back of the wall-hanging, you will notice my brown thread coming through... that is the MANY, MANY areas where my thread broke while I was quilting it. What a pain is the butt! I finally perfected my tension settings to prevent that. I just need to bind it and add the sleeve for hanging. WHAT COLOR BINDING SHOULD I USE? ORANGE, GREEN OR YELLOW? Thanks for any ideas and have a great weekend!
Hi Everyone, Well, I have been working on some more items to put in the consignment shop... I am just having so much fun making things for this time of year! I am going pumpkin crazy! LOL I still need to stain these and the one with 3 pumpkins will go in a frame and the others will be pillows. I also bought a new quilt pattern book and have started on my lap quilt... can't wait to see how it comes out!
Hi Everyone, You might remember back in April, I mentioned that I was doing my very first craft show at a local church (I never did post the pics of that, now that I think about it) but... the woman who ran the craft fair contacted me a few weeks ago because she is opening a shop in Londonderry, NH and wants to display my items!
I am SUPER excited about this new adventure and hope it is a successful one! The Grand Opening is in 2 weeks and I have been sewing every free moment possible! I have over 75 items to price & inventory but here are some of the items. (Click on pics for larger view)

Good Morning, I made this quilted table runner this week. I just love the colors! I am undecided as to keep it or sell it... LOL. This is the first time I used double borders on a table runner. I made one a little wider than the other and I like the way that looks (wasn't sure when I was doing it, though.) This was probably the FIRST time that I didn't struggle with the binding... turns out, I had a wrong setting on my machine. The whole time, I was holding my breath as I was going around with the binding... just waiting for the screw up to happen but it didn't! I was thrilled. I am working on a lap quilt now... can't wait to get that done. I will be having that Fall Give-Away I mentioned in my last post... so keep your eyes out for that. I am hoping to have it up this week.
Good Evening Everyone, My new OBSESSION is applique! I am so crazy about it because it is something that I never thought I would be able to do. I just listed a bunch of Fall items on my Ebay... I hope you'll check it out. Twin Creek Primitives Ebay I will be having a Fall Give-Away very soon so keep your eyes out for that. Happy Sunday!

Hi Everyone, We sure are battered and bruised here in New England from this miserable Winter season we have had... but Spring is on the horizon! I made this spring quilted table runner... it's a small one but I like how it turned out. I binded it with the same fabric I bordered it with... but I forgot to take the pic of it completed. I am doing my VERY FIRST craft show next month! I am so nervous and excited! It is at a local church and is specific to hand-made items. I'm hoping I can take a moment to look around as well. I have a pretty good inventory so far but I have been working on stuff every moment I can... not an easy task between family and 2 jobs but I'm trying!
Hi Everyone, We are so desperate for nicer weather here in New England. This winter has been brutal... and we're getting yet ANOTHER snow storm on Monday! The bad thing about all this cold and wet weather is no one wants to go anywhere or do anything... the good thing is... it's perfect weather for staying in and sewing! LOL I made this spring quilted table runner yesterday... it cheered me up and reminded me that it will be spring soon... and I can't wait! Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
I worked on another quilted table runner yesterday. I just fell in love with the colors of this fabric line... I chose a brown border to tone it down a bit... LOL All that's left to do is the binding... what color do you think I should use? I am thinking orange or green but really, I can use almost any color but wanted to get some opinions. What do you guys think? Thanks for any feeback!
Good Morning! I posted awhile back that I've been getting into quilting lately... I do mostly small projects but I am going to tackle a quilt for my bed soon... we'll see how THAT goes! LOL Here is a spring table runner I made yesterday. It looks fatter on one end just because of the angle in which I took the picture (because I needed to fit the whole runner in the picture) Anyway, I think it came out pretty good... it's a simple fence rail pattern and I machine quilted it with a stipple pattern (love the stipple because there's no wrong way to do it!) LOL
I regret never getting around to having my Christmas Give-Away so I am working on one now... I need to make up for that so it will be a good one!
Good Morning, Everyone... I popped onto my blog at work the other day and noticed that my graphics seemed MUCH darker than my computer at home (where I create my graphics) So now I am wondering if it's just my computer at work... or if it's my computer at home. Do my graphics appear dark to you? Any feedback is much appreciated! Have a great weekend!
