Circa 1880 Blocks & Craft Sewing

Here are this week's Circa 1880 Nine Patch blocks.  I've been cutting up more strips of some newly acquired fabric to make more blocks.  I love making these little cuties and so I just chug along happy as a clam.  

Yesterday, I took some me time during the hottest part of the day to make myself a little something fun.
I spent a couple of hours doing some craft sewing and made myself a pop-up thread catcher.  As I travel doing workshops, I get to see a wide variety of quilting paraphernalia and this is a very popular item.  So cute!  It's a pop-up thread catcher.  Holds a lot of scraps and threads, and when it's time to pack up, empty and squish it down flat.  The elastic keeps it flat for travel.  

It was so fun to make something crafty for myself.  If you'd like to make one, ask for the Fat Quarter Pop-Up pattern (by Fat Quarter Gypsy) at your LQS.  If they don't have one in stock, they are easy to order for you.  

Headed to the patio to enjoy the summer evening and do some hand quilting.  Hope you're enjoying your summer!


  1. Your 9 patches are looking good and what a clever and handy little thread catcher! How big is it? I know - I am so out of the loop on what's new and cool 😊

  5. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Great can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
