Pumping Glue…

Yesterday we hiked early in the day so I had the whole afternoon uninterrupted!!  I got SEW much done…

Finished prepping Snowy Days!  {:Insert a happy dance here!!:}  This is the messy part…DONE!!

Here’s block number four…my personal favourite!P1200830

Block Five..without eyes.


Ooops forgot to take a picture of block SIX…I must have been too busy doing my Ellen Dance!


Then I auditioned threads…I am going with ALL wool threads this time and I had all the colours!!  I’m on a roll!P1200837 

And then everything went into my travelling tote…including needles and scissors!


Before I cleaned up the mess and put away the wool, I thought I had better deal with these guys…YUP, I had to figure out how to finish off ‘Homemade Friends’…  P1200791

I ended up cutting out tongues and two sizes of blue penny circles…snowflakes will be embroidered inside at a later date!


TAH-DAH!  Much more complete…don’t you think?!


So now both projects are waiting in totes…yup..waiting to barrel down that ol’Freeway heading for warmer places..for the feel of desert sand between those snow-toes!

BUT before I leave this morning, I have got to SING the praise of this stuff…Roxanne’s Glue!!  LOVE THIS GLUE!!  This year I bought the pump action bottle and I have to say…it worked perfectly!!  If it clogged, I just stuck a pin down the shaft and it worked immediately!  This was not the case with the other plain bottle with the long needle tip!  I could NEVER unclog it so I would use a tooth pick or a wooden skewer to dab the glue on.  I loved the glue so I was willing to put up with a faulty bottle…well no more!!  This pump action has taken care of all that!!


Now when my gym fiend-friend is talking about lifting weights...yada yada yada…I can interrupt and say “Yes, I pumped glue all afternoon…in rapid succession…with NO problems..yada yada yada!”  Hey, it works for me!! :o))

Have a wicked Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. Two beautiful projects, can't wait to see them in "person". So you glue the pieces down on the background?

  2. Very energetic blog, I liked that a lot. Will there be a part 2?
    Here is my webpage ; Personal Installment Loans poor credit

  3. Wow! I wish I could get one tenth of the things you do finished! Love the wool table runner. Who is the designer and where can I get the pattern?
    Thanks for any info,
    Olde Crow Mercantile

  4. Wonderful pieces, love the wools you used. I just ordered three snow pieces, so went through my stash, going to need lots of whites.


  5. Roxanne Glue is the BOMB!!! I love your sweet snowman wool projects!

  6. I love both of these projects , just beautiful !

  7. Great job prepping those pieces for your trip. Unfortunately I'm the driver inmost trips and can only stitch in the rooms at night.

    Lovely job adapting the table runner, the different sized circles on the tongues is a great idea.

  8. I have not tried the pump action bottle of Roxanne's. I hate those long metal tips. Never worked for me except the first time I would use the bottle. I did the toothpick thing too to dab the glue. I have heard that the small size bottles with a regular plastic tip of Roxanne's does not clog. I have not purchased a small bottle yet.

  9. You are one smart lady to get everything ready to roll down the highway! Great projects to work on while you are basking in the sun! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I love the snowmen...what fun they'll be to stitch. Do you blanket stitch them all down? Can't wait to see them all finished.

  11. Your two new projects are gorgeous, great colour choices.
    Thanks for the info on the glue, didn't know that it came in a pump form.
