Galaxy-Gram! Crumbs Day in Champaign!

Hi everyone!

Just taking a moment to shoot up some photos from today's crumb piecing class with the Illini County stitchers in Champaign, Illinois!

We are having a great time inside sewing like crazy while rain is starting to fall outside.

I love summer days like this, don't you?

The blocks are oh so cute and so very varied!

If you look closely you can catch a glimpse of Lilly,  our youngest student at 7 years old who is here with her grandma!  They are both having so much fun piecing scrappy blocks together :)

After lunch we will indulge in some show and share and get back to sewing!

Much love from Illini County!


  1. Looks like you are never too young to start piecing! Good on her. Everyone is certainly enjoying themselves.

  2. Sweet, love making crumb blocks :0)
    I sure hope I get to teach my granddaughter Lily how to sew one day too. That is her in the picture with me :0) dressed in red.

    Happy Sewing

    Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

    Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu PDF

    Govinda Lilamrta PDF

  4. I just love the crumbs-style of quilting -- I made one for my grandson and he loves it. I use it a lot when I go to visit and he is always quick to tell me "that's MY quilt, Grandma". I'm so happy that he loves it. Just love using up scraps that way. I love your blog too.

  5. It looks like such fun. I haven't tried making a crumb block yet..and I have a lot of crumbs.

  6. Yipee I have been trying to post a comment for hours !!! It's ok I don't have anything to say that will make any difference in anyone's life ( although I am a bit miffed that the yoga advertising person got to blog while I was trying)
    What I was dieing to tell you, Bonnie, and anyone else who reads this my darling granddaughters sew well 3 of 4 sew (the little one just turned 4 no interest, yet same for the boy 2 1/2 no interest yet)
    All 5 in the same family. All the girls are on the swim team each is doing well in her own way.
    The 13,9,and 8 year olds took classes this spring and this summer are sewing with grandma, I love it!!
    How expensive would it be to have the three of then and me and all the "stuff" we would need to do a sewing class !!! We do already have 4 sewing machines all the same make and model easier for me to work with them
    So that it what I waited hours to say, I am do glad I got to. And it's not life altering or life saving but it is a proud grandma talking about the grandchildren she loves , family

  7. A perfectly CRUMBY DAY! :0)
    What fun! Liz

  8. Well done Colleen. I too have recently sewn with my 4 year old grandson. He made cushions for his mum and dad. He was so proud of himself. Good on you.....
