Tu-Na Quilts: Find Me on Facebook

That’s right. Tu-Na Quilts, Travels, and Eats can also be found on Facebook. Come on over and check out my page. You are welcome to follow me to get sneak peeks of what I’ve been up to or updates of blog posts.

I was very busy in October and didn’t write any blog posts but I did post lots of pictures on my Facebook page of my latest quilt project .

I’ve completed the blocks for my grandson’s Minecraft quilt. Now to sew them together with some sashing between.

I’ve also been doing some traveling. Can you guess where? I have lots of stories to tell.

Missouri Star Quilt Co was indeed a happy place.

We also traveled through Texas.

We found many wall murals.

And I finally was able to have one of my dreams come true.

I’ve always wanted to tear down walls. My daughter let me tear part of a wall down in her fixer upper. I would have done more but they didn’t have a proper sledge hammer and there’s only so much damage one can do using the window sash counterweight.

What I Learned Today:

  1. Sometimes shorter and simple is better as it gets done.
  2. My life is filled with lots of fun or maybe I just have a way of turning events into fun happenings.
  3. Demolition is much harder and longer than HGTV makes it seem.
  4. Proper tools makes all the difference.

Question: Have you been to Missouri Star Quilt Co in Hamilton? This was my first trip there. Time will tell (after the credit card bill comes) if I’ll ever return.

Thanks for stopping by and do come again.

    I was at the Missouri Star Quilt Co. in September. A friend who had been there earlier had warned me. I guess she was trying to match fabric, so she was going back and forth. I went with baby quilts in mind, so I looked for fabrics with pictures of things that could be used for book covers. I think the quilt pattern is called Tall Tales. But I was exhausted by the time I had made it to all the stores. That was at the beginning of a 2 month road trip. On the way home we visited friends near Austin. My friend took me to 2 really nice quilt stores (in the same town). Of course, I did have to buy a little more fabric and a couple of patterns. We got home this week, and we are still trying to catch up. I did get all the fabric washed.

    I’m so glad you are busy having fun. That’s the way retirement is supposed to be. Going to the Missouri Star Quilt Company would be awesome…and expensive!!! Doing demolition work sounds like a great way to work through stress, anger, depression, or whatever. I will go out to visit your Facebook page. Look forward to hearing more from you. But if I don’t, I hope it’s because you are having too much fun!!

    I have been to Missouri Star Quilting two times – one shortly after they first opened and it was one store! wow have they come along way baby! I don’t remember how many years ago that was but it really hasn’t been that long to come to the point they are now – I was also there last year to see all the changes and loved it – glad you had a chance – I need to go again sometime they are about 6 hours north of me –about half way point to my daughter in Wisconsin 😉 you can see that will make it a perfect stopping point.

    Good to hear from you. You do seem to make things fun, Karen. I think it would be neat to knock down some walls.
    I’ve never been to Missouri Star. I envy you. I can imagine it would be at least a whole day process to take everything in. Did Tuna Helper hang out in the men’s lounge?
    I don’t do Facebook, but you knew that already. Your grandson is going to be thrilled with his quilt.
    Will you be having Thanksgiving in Arizona? We may skip it this year. Our son works Thanksgiving Day, but is free the day before. However, our daughter works a 12-hour shift that day. She works on Christmas Day, too. She’s a nurse, and our son works for Best Buy, so he has to start working 12-hour days, 7 days a week up until Christmas. It’s hard to coordinate their schedules.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your husband.

    Wonderful news…when this popped in I was so happy to see you again. I sometimes forget who is not posting when there are so many coming through! Hooray for a little fun doing a demolition – a sledgehammer is a definite must. We do know that the right tools make all the difference.

    Oh there you are! I’ve been missing you. Who knew you’d be knocking down walls! You’ve had some fun adventures. I have been to Missouri Star; hubs did hang out in the men’s lounge while I shopped. It was a rainy day and I was hobbling on a sprained (actually it was broken, but I didn’t know it) ankle, so my stop was short. Even then, I did some fun fabric acquisition and serious damage to my finances 🙂 Looking forward to reading your thoughts about the visit!

    Hi Karen! I’ve missed you and I’m so happy to see a post from you. I have never been to MSQC but I do enough damage just receiving their daily email posts. I can only imagine how fun it would be to visit a whole town of quilt shops. I do hope to visit one day sooner than later. The demolition looks like it was fun but not with window sash counterweights. I’m glad you didn’t get hurt. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Wow that is a most unique quilt, it will be a very loved quilt as it should be. We are getting rain today, what is with that? Guess that is better than snow. Quilting is fun, but it does take up most of your time, but when you have the finished product, then it is so worth all the time an effort. What is next?
