About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Peaceful, Sunny Friday Morning

I want to start this out by saying Happy Birthday to my Husband. He's a great guy. a terrific father who loves his children, and after all these years still has that look in his eye that makes my heart pound. Happy Birthday, Babe!

Here is a look, finally , at the quilt that I have been working on. I started this at The Harbor Star a year ago, and it was intended for a baby who never received it. Probably because I never finished it.
I quilted it myself, while at the farm with my friend who needed some soul-soothing, and even though machine quilting is not something I excel at I'm still happy with the way it turned out, especially once it was washed and all the mistakes were hidden in all it's crinkly splendor.
I used one of my machine's decorative stitches for some of the quilting, and I did some free-motion leaves on the diagonal.
I also knitted a couple of very Simple Baby Bibs that I found on www.knitlist.com:

I hope to get a pic of the new baby drooling all over them soon.......well, sometime in September, that is.

I've got other projects going, so I better get back to work. You chicks have a great day!

A finish & a sneak peek!

Here is another block from Simply Vintage....again, what's with the damn leaves?
And then there is this....
Those are a couple of peeks at my machine quilting last night....as soon as the binding is on and it's washed I'll show it off to you!
So till then......

A Start and a (Few) Finishes

I have been a very bad blogger again. I let life get in the way sometimes, and other times I'm just super lazy.
I won't bother you with the details that kept me away....I'll just get right to the crafting....

Here are my first two blocks from Simply Vintage........I just don't know how it is that I started another applique project with SO MANY LEAVES!

This is the block I started putting together yesterday, so that I would have something to work on in the car on the way to and from my youngest daughters graduation from cosmetology school (YEA NIK!!!)

I guess that is all I have to share for now. I will try to be a better blogger in the future (have I made that promise before?).
