Hello Quilter!

Grandmotherhood continues to be totally awesome! Zoey is enjoying our warm weather out in the back yard atop her slide in this picture. So brave! You couldn't get me up there---for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the sticker on the side that says the weight limit is 45 pounds.

Zoey has figured out her mother's iPad. She pushes the home button, scrolls left and right until she finds the kiddie app she wants, taps to open it, and then navigates to her favorite song. (Thankfully she still needs help with the password or she'd be ordering toys on Amazon.)

Zoey can say Mama, Dada, bath, up, help, shoe, this, that, cup, mine, stop, and duck. One just has to understand her unique dialect. She gives hugs and blows kisses! Everything she does melts my heart.


Twisted Sisters Is BACK and It's Better Than Ever!

I am so excited! I've spent the last year and a half revising and expanding Twisted Sisters, my most popular quilt pattern, and I am so happy with the results.


Now, using the same rotary template, you can make different block designs. Some blocks are pieced with "Twist" fabric and "Background" fabric before using the template to cut them (like the original above), but others are cut from a single pieces of fabric. No seam to fuss with. Wow! Plus I've included new settings and new color strategies so you can make a slew of new Twisted Sisters quilts. And, I've included coloring pages for each variation so you can map out color strategies and placement with markers or colored pencils.

The Sisterhood

Spring is here! I know that Spring arrived some time ago, technically speaking, but now the warm weather has arrived it's time for my annual celebration. It's time to dye my underpants! And while I'm up to my elbows in dye, I'll throw in a pair or two of your panties if you like. Click here to join the Yo-Yo Sisterhood of the Traveling Panties.


Locker Hooking

Thanks for the sweet comments about the Locker Hooking tutorial in the last newsletter. I have a few Starter Kits left, so if you didn't jump on that last time, you're in luck if you hurry.

I also got in another shipment of NeckLites. You'll notice that I stuck that in the newsletter in an not-so-obvious place. Every time I mention the NeckLITES I sell out. You've made me very afraid. Colors this time around are hot pink, yellow, raspberry, rainbow, purple, silver, black, red, and light blue. As always give me alternate colors; they sell out fast.


Scooter's Video Pick

It's me, the dog. I am very excited for the Spring also because Mom actually goes outside to the back yard when she dyes clotheslines and panties. It's the only time she visits Nature other than when she picks up my presents. I love to help Mom. Sometimes I get spots on me when I help and Mom squirts me with the hose. I have only grabbed one pair of dyed panties when the wind blew them out of the tree. OK, maybe two. Three, actually, but don't tell Mom. They were already dry so I didn't get rainbow mouth.

I have a video to share, and it is my all time favorite. It is of me. But, as you will see I can be a very lazy dog. Which is why I don't have a picture to show you even though I usually do. So click here to see me being lazy.


Thank You!

Thanks for reading all the way to the end! Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
