A Shop Hop

I went on a shop hop this last week and had a good time checking out the stores.  There were only 4 quilt shops involved in this one but it was still fun.  I got some free goodies!


There were 5 fat quarters, a cute Kleenex holder, a fold up purse size lint roller, a tape measure, and a pin.  Ha ha, I didn't notice the cat hair until after I took the pictures.

I just loved this material and had to buy some.


These materials are for a later project, the one on the right is actually a really pretty summer panel.


And I also picked up an orange peel template.


Finished this wall hanging, the pattern was from Jacquelynn Steves.

This table topper still needs to be bound, the kit was my Christmas present at the quilt guild Christmas party.

That's my news, have a good week.

A small wall hanging

Good Happy Easter Day to all of you.  May you be blessed.


I have been working on a lot of quilting projects.  I had ordered this wall hanging kit on sale at Fat Quarter Shop, turned out pretty cute.


I also finished another block for the Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM.  They have a FB page HERE.


I am working on another wall hanging right now, and I picked up a quilt from the quilter yesterday.  I'll show those tomorrow.

I hope you have fun this Easter and enjoy your holiday with family and friends.

Baby Quilts, etc.

Hi everyone,

A short absence while I adjusted to being tired all of the time from the weather, and then getting outside to do some yard work.  An absence from writing posts, not quilting. 


I have finished a couple of baby quilts for the new baby that's coming in July.  A few appliqued planes make it better.




And then there is the pieced quilt.  I really like this one.


I have also been working on the quilt for the library show.  The theme is mystery books.  Well I love Nancy Drew.


I still have to bind this one and get it turned in, but the show isn't until May 10.  It is wall hanging size.

And last, but not least, I have two more squares done for the Quilt Doodles BOM.



So yeah, I've been busy.  I have also been following your blogs everyday as well.  Happy sewing!

Yum, Food!

Hi everyone

How are you?  I'm doing fine except for a partial that is killing me.  Dentist has adjusted it a couple of times and we have decided that it just can't be adjusted anymore.  So, tomorrow I am going in to be fitted for a new one.  Hate to put out the money, but when it hurts to wear it what are you going to do?

Made some cabbage soup today, my husband loves it.  Saved the big outer leaves of the cabbage and tomorrow, after the dentist I will put together some stuffed cabbage rolls. Yum.  I can smell it now.  Doesn't that picture just wet your appetite?

So anyway, I finally got my block for Sun Sand and Sea done.  I must say everyone is doing an incredible job.  You can also check them out on their FB group here.  This is going to be a very fun BOM.


Went shopping today and picked up some material to make another blanket for the future Great Grandson.  July is going to be here before you know it.

OK, I'm going to go check out the blogs and see what everyone else is doing.

BOM Squares

I received two more squares for March in the Quilt Doodle BOM and I have them both done!


I am loving these blocks!

I also have 16 squares done for the baby quilt I am making.  Now I have to sash it.


I had wanted to make something besides quilts, even though I hadn't sewn since my 20's, I got a pattern for a top.  My friend Marilyn helped me measure and adjust the pattern and we got it whipped together.  Then I brought it home and hemmed everything that needed  hemming.  Thank goodness for good friends that are willing to help you out. (It was an easy top to make)

 Maybe we'll dress it up a little.

I also got the new BOM from Sun Sand and Sea, (link is on the left), but I haven't started that one yet.

We had quite a bit of wind roll in with some snow, and we are going to have a few day of cold.  Then it is going to go up to the 50's again.  I like that!

Oh What Yucky Weather!

Well, we went from 50 degrees to cold, with snow last night and then thunderstorms!  Yeesh!  I'm staying in today for sure.

I've been working on the same quilt.  Started putting sashing on and Mattie was too much help!



Anyway you can see what I am trying to work on!  Sugar on the other hand stayed out of the way.  She was busy looking cute in her favorite box.  She needs to lose a little weight, he he he.


Today I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, and Lilly's Quilts.

Have  a great day.

A Delivery From the Mailman- I Won!

I was so surprised to find out I had won the drawing for some pieces of material from Brooke at Silly Mama Quilts.  She has some wonderful things on her blog, I suggest you give her a visit.

And here is what I won - pretty fabric - Thanks Brooke


Yesterday I made a few more squares and last night I started adding sashing.


All the while, my dogs rested, and let me work!


Did I mention that my granddaughter was pregnant? She is due in July and is having a boy.  Can you tell?


Well, I'm  off to quilt - and clean house!
