New Blog Name

Sew Kind of Cozy

I hope by changing my blog name and address, it doesn't confuse anyone who visits my blog.  
I sure had fun making another "moody-owls" quilt and had even more fun giving it to my soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Dana! :)  She was pretty happy about it.  I hope she gets to cuddle often with it.


I included 6 of her favorite books, 1 of mine - Les Mis and 1 of Jorden's - Star Wars... of course! ;)

Besides quilting I love to knit "granny rags" and crochet scrubby's.  They make the greatest little gifts and work like a charm on those dreaded dirty dishes!  

It may surprise some of you but I actually like to make neat and orderly pieced quilts as well!! I'm making this quilt for Dana and Jorden's wedding.  This is my sister's pattern using the quick curve ruler.  You can find this ruler and other patterns at

These are the colors I'm using.  Looking forward to a little quilting change of pace.  

Some of my Sew Kind of Cozy Quilt patterns and instructions will be available soon.  Some of you have been inquiring about them.  

Life is good.  Just busy with early morning seminary, wedding plans and quilting.  I sure can't complain....well......I will complain a little about this
I thought we were going to get away with just a little snow in the valleys this year but I guess not.  It's kind of pretty to look at.....from inside my cozy warm home!! Maggie is not a huge fan either!!

Happy Quilting!! :D

Book of Mormon Seminary Ornaments, Better Late than Never!!

So my husband thought it a little anti-climatic to give my seminary students Christmas ornaments after Christmas.  I obviously didn't care and gave them to them anyway! :) I told them to hang them in their rooms until next Christmas. I mostly wanted them to know I hadn't forgotten about them!  In my world, January is the month I use to finish all of my unfinished Christmas projects!  At least I finish them! ;)

So, I'm a little bit in love with my owls and could not wait to make another owl quilt.  So I did!! :) I'm actually not finished with it but oh so close!! 

I know I've mentioned in the past (like a long time ago) that I am going to sell my patterns.  Well, I actually am!! I'm just really really slow.  I've been working and re-working and then re-working my instructions so they make sense to everyone else.  Of course they make perfect sense to me but I'm not everyone else!! ;) 
I am almost finished though! Hurrah!! :)  

I Hope everyone is having a happy and peaceful time quilting or doing whatever it is you love to do!! :)
