The Quilted Moose

Just thought I would share a few pictures of the Quilted Moose, the quilt shop located within walking distance of my house. How scary is that? :-) The top picture is the first room you enter, then there is a shot of the second room from the top of the steps. You can see her big quilting machine set up, and here is a picture of the quilt that is on the frame now. She does beautiful machine quilting, I am on the list. It will be 3 months before it's my turn, but well worth the wait.

Here are the particulars:
The Quilted Moose

1812 Ashmun Street

Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783


I will have more pictures this weekend, my batteries died when I was taking these.

Mystery Quilt This Weekend

This weekend is the mystery quilt class at the Quilted Moose. Here are my fabrics:

I'm excited to see what the finished quilt will look like. There were yardages given for the borders, but I didn't buy those yet because I wanted to see what the quilt looked like first. It might be a good one for my Godson, then I would just have to make one for his brother too. :-)

Cheryl was here!

I was sitting here Friday night and the phone rang. It was Cheryl, calling on her cell. She asked what I was doing, and I said that I was just hanging out and watching tv. Then there was a knock at the door and I told Jim so he could answer it. And in walked Cheryl! I guess the look on my face was priceless, I didn't know whether to talk on the phone or hang it up. She drove all the way, all by herself, just to see me. I was crying, she was tearing up. Jim wasn't quite sure if I was going to be mad about the surprise or not. (I'm not a surprise type person, I like order in things. :-)
It was a wonderful weekend, we went to the casino, the locks, the school, to a hockey game, and we made a bag. Cheryl hasn't sewn since junior high, and here are the pictures:

Her bag turned our really great, and we had an excellent weekend!

Today in spinning world

Today I am working on spinning up this, from Copper Pot Woolies ( It's great stuff, this one is called Enchantment. I will have enough when I am done to knit a shawl, probably the Highland Triangle Shawl from the Folk Shawls book. Just in time to wear it to the hockey games!
