Quilt Bait

Occasionally, I’ll read a Where are They Now? or a 10 Things You Never Knew About… article, but I tend not to click through on a lot of Internet headlines. And I think I’ve finally figured out why — those “click bait” headlines aren’t really geared toward my quilty interests!

So, Internet scam artists, with that in mind, here are some stories I’d be willing to risk my computer’s security for —

When I’m Not Quilting… I’m Biking? Yeah, I Never Thought That’d Happen Either

My husband has been a cyclist for years and recently he got me to try an electric bike. Turns out, road biking a lot more fun than I expected it to be and now we go out for joint rides a couple of times a week.

All summer, I was able to wear just my regular workout tees, but as the weather is turning cooler, I need some warmer layers. So I made a couple of long-sleeved shirts at Vistaprint that combine my old hobbies – quilting and crafting – and my new one – biking.

Can’t wait to zip around the bike path in these!

Getting LIT with the Grinch this Holiday Season

I can’t wait for the new animated Grinch movie coming from Universal this November!!!

The promotional movie poster was ridiculously inexpensive on eBay, which is a good thing, since making the marquee frame to display it was NOT cheap (or easy.)

But it was totally worth all the time and effort because I’m getting LIT with the Grinch this holiday season. 😀

Round-Up of Whimzie Quilted Stockings (Warning – I use the word stockings a lot in this post)

Over the years, I’ve made a LOT of stockings ready to be “hung by the chimney with care”. Thought I’d offer a little photo montage to get you in the holiday spirit if you aren’t already — there’s something for everyone in this round-up of “whimzical” quilted stockings by Whimzie Quiltz…

***

I love making quilted stockings – giant stockings, themed stockings, traditional stockings, non-traditional stockings – all sorts of stockings. (Do you think I’ve used the “S” word enough? Stockings, stockings, stockings.)

Got a stocking idea you’d like to have me make? Order early at Whimzie Quiltz so your special stockings are ready to hang in 2018!
