design wall monday

I'm working on my carpenter star.....I hope to get it finished tomorrow in time to post on the color palette challenge. Go over to Judy L's to see what everyone is up to.
 I didn't get the chance to sew over the weekend....we had company. It was good to see old friends.

My little boy turned 4 on Saturday....such a big boy now.

my prize

 I won a drawing from Frieda Anderson. I got this great pattern to make a tablet cover and the fixings to finish the bag along with this yummy half yard of her hand dyed fabric. Life is good. :)

Doesn't he have just the sweetest little face?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. We off tonight to see Wishbone Ash.....looking forward to an awesome concert.

color palette challenge fabrics

I found these fabrics in my stash for this month's challenge. I love the colors of the moldy pie. I've been waiting a long time to use the fish fabric. I'm going to make the carpenter star quilt to use in Judy's feather class in June. Only a few more days to get it pieced.

I'm making progress on the green quilt. I finished all the blocks. Frankie seems to approve while Maggie keeps her wary eyes on him.

I finished a wheelchair quilt and I'm pleased with how it came out. I have lots more to practice on.
The next several photos are parts of a tote bag. I'm using some of Vicki's hand dyed gradients. I misty fused them to some decorator weight fabric and did some stitching. I tacked down some  eyelash yarn around the embroidery.

I leave  you with a photo of Frankie....he was sleeping and looked so cute. He woke up before I took the picture and didn't seem all that pleased.....poor baby.

design wall monday

 I'm working on a scrappy green quilt for some friends of ours. They got married last year and I hope to finish it before their next anniversary.

I've been getting reaquainted with Fiona my funquilter. She's been sitting idle for way too long.

 I need lots and lots of practice.
 I leave you with a picture of my sweet Cally.....she loves boxes. It doesn't matter the size.....the smaller the better.
Anyways, go over to Judy's blog and see what everyone else is up to. Have a great day!
