Merry Christmas everyone. Not too much going on here. I'm sleeping more at night now. Sometimes 8 hours straight! Mommy & Daddy are real happy to get that much sleep too! I want them to know who's the boss around here so once in a while I get up at 3 to have a snack. I've learned a new cry. It's really loud & usually involves crocodile tears. I think they are on to me though, I'm not getting the reaction I am hoping for. Hmmmmm, I'm going to have to work on that one. Well, back to more eating, sleeping, playing, & haz mat clean up for Mom & Dad (hee,hee,hee). This is the life.
Hope you all have a nice Christmas with your families today.
Until next time.............................Little Mister Andrew

He's almost here

The Christmas cactus is a start from my Grandma Vivian's cactus. When she passed away my Uncle took starts & gave them to all of us one Christmas. I think my Aunt said Grandma had the cactus since 1931! It took a long time for it to bloom & when it does I always think of Grandma. Don't forget to tell people that are special to you how much you love them!

This Santa is from one of our special Hero Quilters. He'll wave at the "big guy" when he swoops in tonight!

Better go set some cookies out!

Andrew will be blogging tomorrow. I am bushed from all the last minute quilting, snow shoveling & house cleaning. This Grandma needs some rest.

See you soon................Sharon

Snow,snow & more snow

Will it ever stop? I hope so. We have gotten 16" since last weekend. We have shoveled the driveway 3 times. The first time I tried to go anywhere I probably wore 10,000 miles off my tires spinning up the driveway. After 6 tries I finally made it to the top. I had quilts to deliver!

The top picture is our house from the street. The middle

picture is what Christmas lights look like after it snows & snows & snows.

The bottom picture is our cat DC's "princess chair". She loves to sit there & look very regal. Now it looks like it has a big marshmallow cushion!

Our Christmas Eve company could not make it out. The roads where they live are very bad. We'll try again on New Year's Day.

The neighbor's came over & helped us eat some of the warm apple crisp I made for dessert!

On the bright side, we have had no power outages & the thermometer is out of the teens & into the 30's!

I hope wherever you are you are safe & warm.

Merry Christmas......................Sharon

Quilt of the Week

This is a quilt for a new California customer. It has a lot of white that was saying "quilt me, quilt me". I chose leaves to go with the flowers & because I like doing leaves. I've been playing around with different backgrounds & have come up with what I am calling "Swirly Girly". What do you think? I still have at least 3 days of quilting left & I can hear the "Flight of the Bumble Bee" song in my sleep! December is a hurry up & get it done month for quilting. Especially since the National Weather Service has issued a severe weather alert for the Pacific Northwest. It is 14 degrees here right now with 10" of snow & more on the way!
When I get a minute I will update my webshots too.

Check back on Christmas. Little Mister tells me he will be guest blogging again. He thinks Grandma will be too tired!
Stay warm......................Sharon

We have been having some great Grandma time here. Andrew & I spent several hours together yesterday while Mommy & Daddy went flying. We went for a walk using the Baby Bjorn. Flashback for Grandma to when Joanna was small & I took her for walks the same way. Where does the time go? We had a major haz-mat incident on Thursday. Grandma failed miserably! Little Mister was real happy with himself to say the least! Andrew is a good baby, already sleeping for 5-7 hour stretches a night. He is talking up a storm. Hopefully we get a giggle before Grandma has to come home!
Grandma time is calling....................Sharon

Quilt of the Week

The name of this quilt is Twisted Ribbons. It is a
Roxanne Carter pattern & was pieced by Mary C. Mary loves Asian prints & it is a challenge sometimes to find something to quilt in the busy fabric. This time I chose ribbon & then my curly feathers in white. She was very happy with the result. Me too! I have finally found my "feather niche". I like quilting more whimsical designs, curlicues & ribbon curls go with anything, right?
There are pics of the back of the quilt on my webshots.

Have a nice weekend everyone! Today I'm helping at Pa,
John Kroeze's, 100th birthday party. When his daughter Diane asked him what he thought about having his picture on the front of the local newspaper he said "I think I must be getting more important than President Bush." That's Pa, never dull moment & still going strong! Also will be wearing my "nurse Sharon" hat & checking on Dad's hand. Keep your fingers crossed that it gets better soon!

4 sleeps to go & I'm off to Grandmaland! Little Mister rolled over on Thursday, more than once, so we know it wasn't a fluke!

Better late than never

I am thankful for the cutest Dad on the face of the earth! Dad came out & had Thanksgiving dinner with Jim & I. When I asked if he was going to have seconds, he thought for a minute & said " I can't let Jim out do me." (Jim was working on his second plate.) It was nice to have a medical emergency free day! When we are sitting in the doctor's office (my home away from home) I need to close my eyes & think about that sweet smile & that beautiful,wavy white hair & remember I'm taking care of a hero! I hope my hair is that nice when I'm his age!
Stay tuned for more quilt pics of a Twisted Ribbons by Mary C!
9 days & counting

Mish Mash

Need somewhere new to go for an outing? Try Garden D'lights at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens. Here's what they have to say on their website. "Thousands of tiny twinkling lights will transform Bellevue Botanical Garden into a fantasy land of flowers every evening during the annual Garden d'Lights festival from November 29, 2008 through January 3, 2009. Inspired by plants found in Northwest gardens, hundreds of volunteers bundle strings of commercial grade outdoor lights into three dimensional flowers, shrubs, vines, and critters. In November, these creations are 'planted' in the Botanical Garden and, with a flip of a switch, this unique holiday garden blooms every evening from 5:00-10:00 pm." I have been several times & every time is different. They add new displays every year! Last year I went around 5 & had no trouble parking in the upper "free" lot. Start a new family tradition!

Contests, contests & more contests. There are so many pattern & fabric designers that offer free give aways. All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered to win. Here are a few of my favorite blogs with fun stuff going on!

Cinderberry Stitches Natalie from "down under" fab stitchery patterns

Bunny Tales Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs-Love her bunnies & chocolate applique

Gail Pan Designs Another fab designer from "down under" (can't wait to do this)

Helen Stubbings Hugs & Kisses- stitchery, note cards etc

Most of the contests end Dec 1st. Gail is having a contest every Friday. Who knows you could be saying "winner, winner chicken dinner" & you won't even be at the casino or on Dancing with the Stars!

The kitchen is calling me. Pre-Thanksgiving prep & cookies for Pa's (quilting Diane's Dad) 100th birthday celebration. I can not even imagine living to be 100. He has half & half on his oatmeal every morning & grumbles when he has to eat store bought bread.

Countdown til the 10th............Sharon

Quilt of the Week

This quilt was started in 1926 by a customer's grandmother. The redwork blocks won her a blue ribbon at the local fair. Pam wanted to sew the blocks into a quilt to give to her cousin, Grandma's kindred spirit. She took a Roxanne Carter class at Aunt Mary's Quilt Shop hoping to finish by Christmas. I had the privilege of quilting it for her. I wanted it to reflect the quilting that would have been used in 1926.
I think that the scalloped border that they chose was perfect for this special quilt. Check out Blog Along with Aunt Mary to see the finished quilt.
If you ever see blocks or special embroidery at the Thrift store, make someones "Grandma in heaven" happy & give them a loving home!
Busy as a bee here. 15 days & counting........................

Quilts & Roses

This rose is in a pot by our driveway. Who would have ever dreamed that on November 16th I would still have a rose blooming? Jack Frost has made a "fly by" so far this year. Our weather has been pretty mild. This rose reminds me to take time to "smell the roses". Especially after the week I've had!

All is well with the ceiling. What a relief that is to be fixed!

Here is the corner of a quilt I did for Mary C. It was hand dyed fabric.
If you go to my webshots later you can see the other pics I took.
My business manager, Joanna, & I are working on a photo book of my quilting.
I'll post some pics when we are done.

Quilt of the Week

Time to put another quilt picture up. This sweet quilt with applique flowers was made by Jean(Grandmother extraordinaire). I hope someday I can learn to do applique as beautiful as she and the rest of the Sassy's! More on the Sassy's in another post.

I tried a new feather/leaf/swirly thing for the background filler.

I was happy with the way it turned out.

Little Mister Andrew

Hi everyone. Grandma is busy quilting, so I snuck on the computer to say "Hi". I'm learning all kinds of new tricks. Mom says I can hear myself now so I make noise. I really have the crying thing down. I have my "hungry" cry, my "fake" I don't want to go to sleep cry & the best of all "crocodile tears" cry. That one always gets to Mom. I am guaranteed snuggle time with that one! I like laying on my activity center & hitting the bell and I think I'm talking when those sounds come out of my mouth.

Everyone keeps smiling at me so I finally decide to smile back.

Not much else to say now. Does this pumpkin make my hiney look big?

I'm hungry, see you later.................Little Mister Andrew


Aren't these just the cutest? You could win the pattern to make all of them! The pattern is "Marshmallow Dreams" by Sue Daley Designs. All you have to do is go to her blog & leave a comment telling her what is your preference
Hand work - What type ?
Machine work - what type?

She's giving away 6 patterns. It could be your lucky week.

Hope your week hasn't been like mine. Here's what I woke up to Wednesday morning. I felt like Chicken Little only it was my living room ceiling,not the sky that was falling! It seems we had an undetected hole on the roof. I think a branch that fell during a storm started it and then when we were walking on the roof to get to the gutters clean it broke through the roof sheeting. Luckily just a little water, soggy sheetrock & a lot of insulation to clean up. It took most of the day to get it under control. Little pieces of insulation were everywhere. The vacuum got a real workout! Right now it looks like Ma & Pa Kettle live here. There are 3 huge black plastic garbage bags covering the hole!
We have great insurance through PEMCO. I have had a policy with them since 1975. The claims adjuster called me back within 15 minutes, had a contractor here by 2:30 to put a temporary patch on the roof(the hole is the size of a 50 cent piece) & I had a check in my hand by 4:30. I just keep telling myself that it could have been worse. The ceiling fell in above an area rug, missing my quilting machine & any other furniture in the room. Lucky for us the torrential rains did not start here until Thursday,whew!
So here's to a better week, enter the contest, someone has to get lucky!
Stay tuned for more Little Mister pictures soon!

Favorite Halloween Treat

My Mom used to make these every Halloween. She even made them for all the Trick or Treaters that came to our house one year. We lived in a small town, but I'm sure it was still a lot of work to make enough! I have continued making them because it reminds me of her!

I give them to friends & will be mailing some off to Joanna later today. One of my friends, who I thought was sharing them with her family, confessed to hiding them for herself!

Chocolate Popcorn Balls

8 quarts popped popcorn

Combine in large pot & cook to very firm "soft ball" stage.

2 c sugar

1/2 c butter

1 c white corn syrup

2/3 c water

1 1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbl cocoa powder

Add 1 1/2 tsp vanilla when done cooking.

Pour hot syrup over popcorn & mix well. Let it cool a little and with buttered hands(you don't want a ton stuck to your hands) form into balls & let cool. Wrap in wax paper to store.

I use my turkey roaster to mix it all together. If you don't have a candy thermometer you can drop a little of the cooked mixture into a small amount of very cold water(I use a 1/4 c measuring cup) & mush it around with your finger. It's done when the chocolate syrup sticks together & forms a ball.

Bet you can't eat just one...............Happy Halloween from Grandma Sharon

This is a quick one

Check out Sue Daley's blog for a chance to win one of her great patterns. It is called "Field of Flowers" & has applique & stitchery. All you have to do is leave a comment! In her words, "A quick give away is a good give away".

Okay here's a Dad story. Yesterday he asked me if I had any matches. I'm thinking, he lives in an assisted living apartment why does he need matches? Hmmmmm. Me-"What do you need those for?" Dad-"There's some cardboard out back I want to burn." Me-"Why don't you ask someone here if they have any matches & if they want you to be burning they can give you some?" I knew darn good & well why he wanted matches. When he went on an outing to the Dollar Store & came home with some incense! That's what he wants to light on fire! Now why is someone with asthma & emphysema thinking they need to burn incense in their room? I do not have the answer & hopefully never will!

Every day is an adventure, sometimes I'm not into the Adventure!

Quilt of the Week

Here we go with another quilt! This is another Buck-a-Block from the LQS. You could do red, blue or both as Sherrie did. She used both red & blue for the borders & sashings. I had fun dancing around with my little curlicue feather.

I also added some new links in my "Favorite Places". You'll find recipes, stitchery, quilting and just plain fun in them. Keep an eye out for pattern give-a-ways on Jolly Jabber & free stitchery patterns on Crabapple Hill/Meg Hawkey's Knot-y Girls Stitchery Club.
The weather has been nice here. We're making up for a cold & wet summer. Better get busy & enjoy it while I can!

Hero Quilters

Here are the brave ones (brave enough to have our picture taken that is) with some of the finished American Hero Quilts from our October 18th sew day. From top to bottom are Linda, Karen, Gayle, Cindy-patriotic pants, & me. We have 10-20 people at our monthly sew days. There's always good food! I had missed a couple months because I was in California at a baby shower or I was waiting for "Little Mister". It was good to get together with everyone. All of the people involved with our Stanwood-Camano group are amazing. I can't get over how many quilts they keep making! Our total for quilts turned in at this sew day was 29 quilt tops,10 tops with backs & 9 finished quilts!!!!!!! All of the quilts go to wounded soldiers in Washington State. There is a Wounded Warrior Unit at
Ft Lewis that has asked for 100 quilts a month! You can go to the American Hero Quilts website to see how you can help or if you'd like to join our group e-mail me.
To all the quilters & piecers who make all this possible..........................................
Thank you for all you do! Sharon

Candy Corn Hershey Kisses

I always send Joanna some kind of Halloween candy. This year I found these new(at least to me) Hershey kisses. They are white chocolate and mmmmmmm good! One bag disappeared, we all know where they went. They made nice Peanut Butter Blossom
cookies. The cookies are really good warm! I made them during one of my cooking sessions while visiting with Joanna , Sam & Little Mister Andrew. I found the Candy Corn Kisses at Rite Aid.

Now this is the life! I had the privilege of going to the first pediatrician appointment with Joanna & Andrew. He weighed in at 7#12oz. A gain of 1#9oz in 13 days. Can we say our boy loves to eat? My days(& nights) are filled with lots of snuggling, rocking, & assisting with "haz mat" cleanup! Andrew is not fussy. We only hear from him when he wants to eat.

I've been cooking trying to put food in the freezer. Joanna joined a support group for new Moms online. One of the benefits is someone brings you dinner 2 times a week for 3 weeks! What a bonus! Wish that had been around when I had her! As a member you just have to take a turn making a meal for someone else!

Yesterday we put him in the Moby Wrap and went for a walk. It took 2 of us to figure out the "this way, that way,over,under" sequence to get it on Joanna right and Andrew "loaded" in for the walk. Can't wait until he's big enough for the Baby Bjorn! Much easier! At the rate he's growing it will be next week!

I brought 3 customer quilts with me to deliver. Yesterday I braved rush hour traffic to deliver the first 2(by myself). 3 freeways later & I was at the quilt shop. I have turned into such a hermit! At home it's a good day when my car doesn't leave the driveway!

Better get busy. I'm trying to do a little sewing while I'm here!

A very happy.............Grandma Sharon

Quilt of the Weekend

It's been "no weekends off" since I got back for California. Quilting, I just got back from Innovations in Tacoma & more quilting. Took 3 classes this year, Hooked on Feathers with Sally Terry, Pam Clarke's Easy Elegant Borders & Grace Anderson's Vines Twines & Twisty Designs. I love learning new techniques! I will definitely have to PPP(practice, practice, practice) in my sketch book while I'm gone.

The quilt today is an applique quilt that were friendship blocks done by members of Camano Island Quilters. Bunny,the piecer is 83! I tried a new background filler in the blocks & my feather's with tendrils in the border.

Jack Frost was here last night. He only got the windshields of the cars & a little on the roofs in the neighborhood. Brrrr! Guess it's finally time to empty some of the flower pots. It is beautiful & sunny today! I am going to enjoy it while I can.
Stay tuned, I will blog about Little Mister Andrew again soon!
Getting ready for Grandmaland........................Grandma Sharon

Quilt of the Week

Carol's Pumpkin is what I named this quilt. I think it was this customer's first machine applique project. I like quilting feathers in sections & adding curly tendrils. Much more forgiving! The thread was from Superior's King Tut line & is called Flower Pot. Actually I finished this quilt in September. Check out my webshots July-Sept 2008 album for more pictures of this quilt. I am behind on posting. Hopefully I can catch up by the end of the weekend.

I'm off to California on Sunday. Since Little Mister Andrew did not make his grand appearance until I came home I am going down for a few days to see him. Can hardly stand the wait! counting the days..............2 more sleeps to go..........Grandma Sharon

Only in California

So, while I was at Joanna's several things happened that either made us laugh or look at each other and say "Are you kidding?"

First at Trader Joe's as were leaving the produce area I hear a funny noise and a 3 year old no-neck-monster-ankle-biter zings at us on his razor scooter!!! I said something, maybe a swear word(oops)thought "what the heck?". Continuing with our shopping around another aisle we start to hear barking. We are in Fremont, not Beverly Hills, so I know it's not Paris Hilton & her side kick! We both look around and there is little Fifi(made up name) in a crate in some woman's shopping cart! After a store employee confirms that the dog is not a service dog, out to the car her goes! Then a couple days later at Safeway someone who loved their dog had their beloved Jack Russel in the child's seat.

On the freeway on our way to the airport there's a merging mini van with the driver's door open!!!! Again, we look at each other like "Are you kidding?" As a driver if I was having a problem with the door I'd at least pull over. Lucky he had his seat belt on!

My trips are usually not this interesting. Somehow this trip was different! Just when you think you've seen everything..........Sharon

Andrew Dean Patraw

Monday September 29th
Here he is! He made his grand entrance in less than 2 hours after Joanna & Sam got to the hospital! Weighing in at 6#4oz & 19 3/4" long. So far, so good! He's not a big crier & everyone seems to be getting some sleep! Can't wait to snuggle with my new grandson!

Still waiting..................

So here's what I've been up to the past week. The stitchery blocks are Ella & Ave from Truly Scrumptious by Cinderberry Stitches. I am almost finished with the third block of nine! The red & white quilt is my Buck-a-Block. See Joanna's blue finished quilt at my webshots. The Halloween quilts are left over pieces from a quilt I made. I used ric-rac to stitch over for the quilting. And last , but not least Caroline the turtle being watched by Hunter, the cat that recently adopted Joanna & Sam. Hunter got his name from all the feathers in the yard! He is now sporting a very nice collar with a bell! Hunter is very curious about the turtle. We caught him in the turtle pen outside!
I'll be leaving today to come home to Washington. I could really get used to this California weather! With my luck Joanna will have "little mister" tonight! He is just not quite ready to make an appearance!
Watch on future posts for an update on my "Gardening with Angels" quilt. It will be hanging at "Quilting in the Garden" at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore CA this weekend!
More details later.................Almost Grandma Sharon

Waiting for Little Mister

Here are some of the projects I've been working on while waiting for "little mister's" arrival. Starting on the left and going clockwise, sewed borders on Joanna veggie quilt. Love that cabbage fabric! I made 3 table toppers out of leftovers from the Halloween quilt(on right side). That was a real bonus! There's a wallet that matches the Miranda Bag(see previous post) and I've started on my Truly Scrumptious quilt blocks. The first one is called Gigi's Journey. Front & center is the setting block for the buck-a-block I'm hoping to finish soon. Mine is red and identical to Joanna's blue quilt that was my very first post.

Cute Dad story. Today my sister stopped by to help him fill his pill minder. He got all the pill bottles out and she asked him about the water pill he takes. "Do you take this in the morning or at night?" His answer........."Sharon always puts one in for every night, but I don't like taking them that often so I just put them back in the bottle." He's the one that told me how many and what spot they went in! He is such a character! I could care less if he doesn't want to take them at this point!

Joanna got a surprise delivery today. Check out these gourmet chocolate covered strawberries. I did get to sample one. Jim felt bad she isn't getting any sleep and sent them to her!
Still waiting............Almost Grandma Sharon

MIranda Done!

Here's the Miranda Bag I finished last week. The pattern is by Lazy Girl Designs. Check out the Lazy Talk Blog for the latest and greatest on bags, quilts and whatever.

Joanna & I have been very busy quilting. I'll try and get a "group" picture and post later today of all our projects so far. I finally started my Truly Scrumptious stitcheries from the very talented Natalie of Cinderberry Stitches. I need pick up-put down handwork while I'm here. This whimsical set of ladies caught my eye and will be perfect in a quilt!

Yesterday while we were out for "retail therapy" I had an "only in California" experience. I was shipping my Gardening with Angels quilt to Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore. The clerk asked me if Alden Lane was one word? I said it was 2. Not realizing until she said "then the last name is "nursery" did I finally figure out that she thought Alden Lane Nursery was a person's name!!!!!!! On top of that it was almost 80 degrees inside this store, Joanna had to hand me a tissue because the "I'm over 50 & never get cold sweat" was running down my temple! It took the clerk another 15 minutes to put the quilt in box ,tape it shut & put the label on! Joanna & I dared not look at each other or the laughter would never stop! Finally out the door Joanna says " I think that calls for a stop at Dairy Queen on the way home. I said I could use a drink! Does Dairy Queen serves margaritas? Ahh, another day in sunny California!

"Little Mister" is not being very co-operative! Still having some contractions, not sleeping well(practicing for when her gets here) and well you know. A week of this is getting old and this almost Grandma only has until the end of next week! We are going to the Dr later today. I'll post the update with the "group picture" later today!

Not counting the days anymore..................Almost Grandma Sharon

Quilt of the Week

Here's a quilt Joanna made. It's called Secret Garden. The pictures were taken in her backyard under the elm tree. I had one corner left to quilt when she called on Monday and said she was having some contractions. I hurried and got done, buzzed around and waited for another call. She called Tuesday morning and by noon I was headed for the airport. It's good to be here. It seems our "little mister" is not quite ready to make his grand entrance! He has her busy keeping track of contractions, but nothing serious yet!We are staying busy with quilts. I put borders on her veggie quilt, finished my Miranda Bag, a little  Valori Wells kit I've had for 3 years, and I am starting a wallet to go with the Miranda Bag. I'll do another post later with a picture of all the projects together!
Day 3 of waiting.....Almost Grandma Sharon

Monet's Reflections

This is the second quilt that I made for the next 2 for 1 class at Aunt Mary's. You sew strip sets and get 2 different "block" pieces from each strip. One makes the Monet's Garden quilt(see previous post) and this quit, Monet's Reflections. This one takes a design wall for layout, but well worth the end result. The wiggly waves seemed perfect for the water look. Check out Aunt Mary's website for class date & time.
I'm adding some new favorite places, blogs & websites. The stitchery gals from down under are very talented. If I only had enough time to do the stitching! And also some state fair winning recipes for brownies that just make my mouth water looking at the picture. I'm going to try and a "counter" at the bottom of the blog and I found some good "link groups" to add! We'll see how this low tech almost Grandma fares. If you see blue smoke on the horizon, you'll know it's not going well! Stay tuned...........Sharon

This One's for Jean

Sorry Joanna, Jean says I need to post more than once a week. Here is a picture of the Miranda Bag I'm working on. Hopefully will be teaching a class this fall on how to make this great bag! There's even a Lazy Girl Design blog and a Yahoo group that have great pictures of what fabrics you can use when you make this bag! The Granary , our favorite California quilt shop in Sunnyvale, is where Miss Joanna made her Miranda Bag. I know I'm going to make more than one. Now if I could just have my purse as organized as Joanna' are right, that will never happen!
Here's my "cute" Dad story of the week. (At least this week it's cute!) So when he was talking to me about his visit with the girlfriend he said they started dinner late and it was going to make him "late" getting back to his assisted living apartment. I said nothing. There is no "curfew" where he lives, I'll never tell!
I'll be back later with my favorite quilt! Until then..............Sharon

Here's your chance to win big! Dena's "Sugar Shop" blog is one of the first blogs I got hooked on. She has funny stories about "jumpy kid"(her son) and other adventures in her life. Plus she is a very talented photographer and maker of fantastic bags! She is giving away a $75.00 gift certificate to the online fabric store Over The Rainbow. Be brave, enter, who knows it could be your lucky day! Shhhhh don't tell Joanna I posted twice this week!
I hope our "little mister" gets here soon. It is too cold and I need some California sunshine!! Have a great weekend and until next time....Sharon
