finally

 
I made it for the last linking. I really enjoyed this quilt. I made it kingsize for our bed. It will be the first quilt done in the new house. Thanks for the inspiration Vicki.
All the fabrics were from my stash.

my little boy




Frankie let me take some photos of him today. Mostly, the cats just walk away now when they see the camera. Deb just posted a bunch of photos of her babies. I know she'll love these. Go check out her babies....last picture made me laugh out loud.

I made myself a knitting bag. My friend Erin has one and it's just perfect for holding your sock project.




Hope you enjoyed my boy. Have a wonderful evening!

ufo challenge

I finally finished a quilt from my list.....woohoo. This is a Thimbleberries quilt called Sunrise. I did a simple meander on it.

We enjoyed this view up north for a couple of days. The weather turned out to be perfect. We sat out on the deck, listened to music and read. It was a wonderfully relaxing time.

color palette challenge

For my project, I made a pillow using Carol Ann Waugh method of stitch and slash. I took a couple of her classes on craftsy.com.  I really liked them and love her methods.....wonky and free.


Here are my girls hanging out.

a finish

I finished 4 wheelchair quilts. They went to some handicapped children at a local school. It's a good feeling.

This is a very rare occurance in house of ragdoll. Maggie, after 4 years, still hates, somewhat tolerates Frankie. They were engrossed with a bird up in the gutter. She was willing to let bygones be begones and not hiss or smack him as she usually does if come within a hundred few feet of him.

I finally finished a quilt on my ufo challenge list. This is my second year working the list. I gave this one to my friend, Erin.....it was supposed to be a gift for her 50th birthday. That was 5 years ago. She didn't care....she loved it and that made me happy.

I finally realized my stumbling block with getting my quilts quilted. I told myself I did not like stippling and because I was not willing to work through that, I never finished any quilts. I am happy to say, I have gotten over that silly notion and I am quilting at my skill level and letting myself enjoy it!

I had a lot of help with the binding this morning.....she stayed the whole time, happily purring away.

design wall monday

These are the fabrics I've chosen for the color palette challenge. I'm going to make these shapes with the fabrics and applique them on to the white background. Those are my thread choices and I'm going to use the red rickrack in some way. Go check out Judy's blog to see what others are working on. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
