Quilting

I Just Want Your Extra Time…

Cozyegg Kiss Kiss Quilt

Remember that time, a million years ago, when I shared my almost-finished Kiss Kiss quilt top? You know, the one I worked on at a weekend retreat? At the end of that weekend, I only needed to sew my borders on for the top to be finished. So, a couple weeks after that retreat I settled in at my brand new work surface/desk top to get those borders on.


Oh Look, a Squirrel!

Quilt inspiration at the Dallas Quilt Show turns into a finished quilt top at my first In Town Sewing Retreat.


Quiltus Interruptus

Miss me?  My sincere apologies for leaving you hanging.  It’s been busy over here at Cozyegg central, and unfortunately there’s been little needlework happening too.  But, back to the good stuff.  When last we met I promised more photos of the lovely pieces I got to see at the Dallas Quilt Show and boy, do […]


Steampunk Baltimore

In my last episode of the podcast I promised that I would share photos from the Dallas Quilt Show that I went to a week and a half ago.  I finished up editing my photos this weekend and after looking through them I decided that I’m going to break this up into two posts.  In […]


Cliff Notes from 2015

Hello, friends!  Thanks so much for your comments on my last post!  For those of you who saw that post pop up on your blog feed and noted how glad you were I was back to blogging, I wanted to fill you in on what happened.  Last December I migrated my blog from Blogspot over […]


Mini Quilt Swap

Last summer I signed up for my first Instagram quilt swap – the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap.  I’d never done any kind of quilt swap before, so I was really excited about it.  When I got my partner assignment, I spent about a week stalking her on social media and brainstorming on what […]


My True Love Gave to Me

In 2002 a little quilt shop opened near me and I decided to do something that I’d dreamed of doing for years.  I signed up for a beginning quilting class.  I bought a sewing machine specifically so I could take the class and barely even knew how to thread it when I showed up on […]


Snow Day

Several years ago, I bought some Kate Spain Christmas fabric to make some little Christmas gifts as well as make some dessert napkins to use for our annual holiday party.  I ended up with a bit of yardage left over but no clue what to do with it. Then, enter Rachel from P.S. I Quilt. […]


Quilt Retreat

Back at the beginning of summer (why do all my blog posts start with “way back six months ago”?!?), I was invited on a weekend quilting retreat in Van Alstyne, TX.  I’ve never been on a quilting retreat before, so I was super excited.  So excited, in fact, that I brought five different projects with […]


Le Printemps

One of the things I purchased at the Dallas quilt show was some small charm packs of the Printemps line from 3 Sisters.  I loved the colors and how perfectly French it looked to me.  It was the perfect choice for a little thank you gift I wanted to make.  I saw a photo on […]


A Modern Slant

Back in the Spring I treated myself to a day at the Dallas quilt show.  Last year was the first year I’d been in a long time and had such a good time that I vowed to go again this year, even though I was going by myself.  I ended up getting to meet up […]


Summer Stitches

Hi, everyone!  I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer.  I’ve been working on a couple of projects that just seemed like the perfect thing for summertime.  You may remember a while back I started the Tula Pink Hex on the Beach quilt.  It was an English Paper Piecing (EPP) kit that was offered at […]


Adventures in Color

Look!  She lives!  Not only does she live but she has stuff to share!!!  So, yes…I have been sorely neglecting the old blog for the quick and ease of Instagram (ie I’m lazy).  Well, not entirely lazy, but it is certainly easier to shoot a photo on my phone, upload it to IG and then […]


Good Tidings

Every year for the past several years I have started a new stitching project on New Year’s Day.  And somehow giving a piece that distinction makes it special to me.  I suppose for me it’s a way of celebrating and honoring the new year.  Some of my past New Year’s starts have been Mystery IX […]


Closing Out the Year

I appreciate you all being patient while I play post catch up here.  This post though, as you can tell from the title, is the last of things I wanted to share with you from the end of 2013.   I was very excited when Paulette announced she would be doing a Sunday Mystery SAL back […]


It’s Friday, Y’all!

I’m back with some fun things to share with you today from when Eric and I went to the State Fair back in October.  You know seeing the Creative Arts and Textiles building is always high on my list and it’s always fun to see the pieces people have entered.  I hope you enjoy getting […]


First Monday

  Happy New Year, dear friends!  It’s the first Monday of 2014 and I’m feeling like it’s time to get in sync with my plans for this year.  One of the things I intend to do this year is get back to regular blogging.  While other forms of social media are fun and much more […]


Nightshade and Nightmare

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you probably already know of my love affair with Tula Pink‘s fabric.  When Miss Tula released her Nightshade line a couple of years ago, matching her amazing design talent with an utterly gothic take on Halloween, I was instantly sunk.  This line is probably one of my […]


Summer to Fall

Thank you so much for all the comments on my John Reed finish.  And apologies to those of you who wanted to leave comments, but couldn’t.  It seems to be some sort of hit or miss thing with either blogger or this template I’m using since some people could leave comments and some couldn’t.  So […]


Summertime Flyby

I hardly know what to make of the fact that it’s almost the end of August and of summer.  The past few months have been a blur of late late nights and 60-70 hour workweeks.  I have been stitching, although very slowly, and hope to have some progress to share soon.  I’ve been spending a […]


Swooning

There’s been a lot of top secret gift making going on at Chez Cozyegg the past few weeks.  But, I’m pleased I can finally show you one of the two projects I’ve been working on!  I’d been contemplating what to do for a friend for her birthday, and after attending the Dallas Quilt Show with […]


Remember October?

October is always a super busy month for Eric and I and last October seemed to be even more jam-packed than normal.  In fact it was so full that I’m only just now getting around to editing and sharing some of the photos.  We always go to the State Fair in October, and one of […]


Measure Twice

Ever since I went to the quilt show, I’ve been jonesing to sew.  Plus, I was so excited to finally get my Christmas quilt top finished, that I wanted to prolong the excitement by working on another WIP.  Well, a couple of weeks ago, I decided that the time had come.  Last year on my […]


Tales of a Hexagon Addict

A couple of months ago, I started another hexagon pincushion for a dear friend’s birthday.  She’d admired the ones I’d made previously, so I just knew that she needed one too.  And not only are hexies downright addictive, they are also a great take-along project.  I’ve found they are a perfect way to keep my […]
