Quiltathon Update and Lazy Sunday Morning

I got up and went to church. After church I stopped by Wal-mart to get some stuffing for the pillow I made yesterday. So by the time I got home is was after 10:30.

I purchased a new type of filling called "cluster stuff". Is is tiny, down-like clusters that are not supposed to clump or bunch. Can't wait to try it.

I had started my bread machine before I left for church so within 5 minutes of walking in the door after church my bread dough was ready. I took it out and put it in a loaf pan to rise. Within an hour, I was pulling it out of the oven. Yum Yum!

Here's my lunch. Salad with smoked turkey, cheese & boiled eggs, tomato soup, bread, and orange juice. I am trying to eat healthy and lose a few pounds before our June cruise.

Lunch has been eaten and my Santa Pillow finished.


A light snow is falling again and this chair is calling me. 

No, I am not going to do it. I'm not going to sit down in that chair by the warm fire and read blogs all afternoon. 

No . . .  I'm off to work on my Kindle cover.

I have the fabrics sewn together and have applied decorative stitches. Now I need to add the binding and decorate. I decided not to put appliqued work on it, I just added a few buttons. Ta Dah!  It's finished. Oh, by the way, I used the Bookkeeper pattern from the Moda Bakeshop website.

 Now I'm switching back to working on the Santa Pillows for a couple of hours. I look forward to seeing what everyone else has been up to these past two days.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. My 10 year old granddaughter is looking over my shoulder and she loves your Kindle cover! Especially the black and white checker board. I think it's pretty cute too.

  2. The pillow & cover turned out so well. I love the details of the different stitches on the cover. Just perfect with the whimsical fabrics.
