New Pattern Pinstripe Crossing Pinstripe Crossing In July, I started something new. I started a new tester group to help me test out my new patterns, plus was in the process of creating a secret Facebook group just for my testers.

But things went very pear shaped straight after that. I am only now feeling some normality returning to my life, so after I finish of some commitments with some hops andRead More →

This is my first Row Along and it has been so much fun designing what I saw in my head.  I grew up in southern Maine with the ocean on one side of us and a mountain (my husband calls it a hill, lol) on the other side.  I love walking through the woods as much as spending time gazing out across the ocean.  Our lobsters and famous Nubble Lighthouse attracts people from all over. I hope you enjoy this rendition of our state.Read More →

Philosophers Stone from Harry Potter The is the newest pattern made for a request. The lady, Jo, is making a Harry Potter quilt for her son, and wanted this faceted Philosophers Stone, to add to the patterns. The pattern is 10 inches finished, and paper pieced.
