Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

Pardon Me ...

Pardon me for just a moment but .....

Okay, so I'm whining ... seriously, I know ...
But come on! 
I haven't sat down at my sewing machine for quite some time now
and yes ...

I'm pouting!!!

Okay ... I'm done

Seriously though .... I only started quilting
about seven years ago ...
and those of you who follow my blog
regularly know my "addiction" to my
sewing machine .... second only
to my addition to chocolate ;)

I have so got to find my rhythm of family, new job, house work, yard work and QUILTING!

Family may be the heart of me,
but it's nice to have something assist
Momma's heart keep beating
to a happy drum ... :)

I'm feeling a bit deprived looking at my friendly Bernina sitting there so pretty in her
little cabinet across the room, patiently
waiting for me to come visit her again
(soon ... I promise!!)

But, heck, seven years ago,
I thought quilting was an ...

pardon me ladies ...
please throw sock not shoes ...
remember it's your computer!

but ...
I thought quilting
was an .....
um ....
a "retired ladies"
activity ...

I know! I know!! 

How wrong was I ??!!!

I was so hooked after my first
foray into piecing,
and applique,
and stitching,
and ... and ... and ....

seriously, obsessively hooked!

Quilting is so
just for the ladies of
more accumulated wisdom.

Oh heck no!

In fact ... I recommend to anyone
and everyone to not waste anymore
time, get started now ...

How you ask??

Oh, my goodness, gracious, gosh!!

Haven't you heard???

Everything a Wantobe Quilter
could use can be won here ....

Oh!  So worth a trip to check out Tobe and her Wantobe Quilter Campaign.

Madame Samm has compiled everything a new quilter (and those of more experience, also) could possibly dream of needing for beginning this wonderful lifetime passion we call quilting.

I'm so thankful to the friend that introduced me to quilting seven years ago ... I'd love to be the one to introduce you to quilting, or help you introduce one of your friends who has never tried it ... if you'd like to be signed up for the Wantobe Quilter giveaways .... check out all the information by clicking here ...
and then come back here to sign up
 either yourself or your buddies you
think would really love to start quilting ...
even if they don't know it yet ...

trust me, I resisted for years ...

all those wasted years!

See you soon!!

Campaign starts August 1st,
so start spreading the news

And thank you so much for visiting!

Happy Hugs and Warm Hearted Wishes~~


  1. Okay...little old 'retired' lady that I am...what am I waiting for? I must be the biggest 'wantobe' quilter on the face of the planet. Although (honestly) I did, on my newly aquired machine, sew three strips of a jelly-roll together this past week to begin my journey into quilt-land. I keep thinking that osmosis will be my devine savior into learning what I want to so badly to acomplish! I WANT to quilt, I envy ALL of you lovely ladies but I must not be able to use the proper side of my brain to 'see' what it takes to make my first quilt. But I will...just you wait and see! (((smiles)))

  2. By the way Miss Wendy...this is an excellent addition to your Blog this week! I LOVE it and your humor!

  3. Hee hee! Hope you get back to your machine soon! And you know I'm so pathetically Wantobe it isn't even funny. (I swear it looks like you found a picture of my Gramma quilting, except she used to send her tops out to be quilted. Quilted badly. So sad.)

  4. Teehee! Love your post, Wendy! And I'm in the same boat....I'm gettin' positively cranky, er, grumpy, cos I haven't been able to sit down and sew some lately!!

  5. Such a cute post! I haven't found my machine recently either. I know the feeling. Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Love the post Wendy....and miss you being here more often, but I know working, children, housework, etc. doesn't leave much time for anything else! blessings, marlene

  7. Ok, let us jump in the same boat...cause my machine asked me yesterday when I was in my sewing room..placing more material on the table.. " Ahhhhh do I know you?"....

    yep I can sew identify...lol

  8. I hope you find the time to get back to the sewing machine soon. I've always been interested in sewing but had no one to show me the ropes. Finally my friend's mom took me under her wing and has helped me out. 4 years later, I'm really enjoying the craft and going into debt because of it. LOL!!!
