Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend ringing in the New Year. Robert and I enjoyed a quiet evening at home grazing thru holiday leftovers and watching movies with Captain Morgan :). We carried the lazy theme into New Year's Day and thoroughly enjoyed the "do nothing" day. It doesn't seem to happen very often so we relish every minute. We're both back on the clock today even though several of my kids still had the day off for the holiday. I thought maybe getting a jump on the week would put me ahead, but not so much. Most of Christmas is put away and cleaned up and 3 of 4 new patterns/books are being printed, so I'm getting there - just slower than I wanted. Do you have those days when everything seems to be going great but the clock is racing faster than ever? It seems most days now only have about 16 instead of 24 hours in them!

Someone who's accomplished alot recently is Cindy Dunlap. I received an email with a photo of her new shower curtain and wanted to share it with all of you. Love that she used the One Step at a Time pattern and a KT Jelly Roll to make a unique shower curtain for her bathroom. Awesome!

Do you have a KT project you'd like to share? I'd love to see it and post it here! That way, I don't have to think so much about what to say every time. Help me out, ladies. Let's see what you've been up to!
I'll post again on Thursday. See you all then. Lynne


  1. I love her shower curtain, it is beautiful!
    I want to make one and I do like how a quilted one looks, so will have to think on it.


  2. Awesome shower curtain! I do have a KT project that I am working on right now and I just love how it is turning out! Have not yet posted my most recent pictures, but perhaps tomorrow I will. Of course I will be showing the gorgeous fabrics of your Butterfly Garden line which are just so warm and lovely! I will not have finished pictures for a while though, but when I do, you will certainly be welcome to use them!


  3. It's a wonderful shower curtain. What a great idea.

  4. Cool shower curtain how does it work to not get wet and moldy? Please excuse my ignorance, but I have never seen a quilted shower curtain?

  5. Now that is an awesome shower curtain! I am guessing it's a quilt top with a shower liner? I just love the fabric choices!
    By the way... my package came today with the lovely flannels! Thanks a bunch!

  6. Great looking shower curtain! We had a lazy New Year's Day too... for the same 24 seems like 16 reason! lol!

  7. Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I made my own shower curtain too, but it isn't pieced quilt blocks. Very nice anyway!

  9. Awesone shower Curtain. I have a quilt hanging in my bathroom now that is made of KT and the pattern is Mexican Star.

    I've been trying to think of a pattern with large pieces that will coordinate. it's as if Cindy has read my mind!

    I have been searching the web for A Year of Kansas Troubles book for about 15 months. My search is finally over and I can't wait to get started.

    To start, I'm going to make four quilter's bags for birthday presents for my KT sewing buddies. They are also getting a KT tin with the bag. It's pretty hard for me to make things for others using my KT stash. I am so greedy, I want to hoard every strip. I really need a 12 step program for my KT fabric addiction!

  10. Such a great shower curtain...I would have never thought of that! I love it.


  11. Cindy's shower curtain is so much prettier than anything you can purchase. What a great idea.
