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.

A Gorgeous Day In Michigan!

I've been wasting the day cleaning. Bathroom scrubbing, ceiling fan dusting, and laundry have taken over my day. I should have my head examined.
So, since I haven't done anything at all creative today, I thought I'd share a couple of the quilts i saw when I went with my Quilty Chicks to the local community college to see their exhibit on The Depression Era. There was quite a bit to see, although I wish that there had been more quilts and that I could have gotten closer to them to get better pics.
Here are just a few.

Can anyone explain to me an easy way to move pics around on this thing? Id like to show some more of the blocks from that lavender applique quilt....but I need to move it down one space. UGH. I get so frustrated sometimes with this thing!

The heck with it. I'll show them in the next post.

Can you tell me why this is suddenly double spacing my sentences? Double UGH!

Instant Gratification Project

I made these 2 make up bags this weekend (from my stash, with the exception of the zippers). I am donating them to my Sister In Law Alyson to use as door prizes for one of her Breast Cancer 3 Day fundraisers. She and her team are hosting an all day crop that I will be unable to attend (due to my trip to Paducah!!! and Talladega!) so I thought I'd hurry up and do something to help her out. I am hoping to make one or two more.....and I will be heading out to the farm later this morning to get to work .
I really working on these types of projects...finished rather quickly and with materials on hand.

You chicks have a great day.....

Nothing much to show.....

But I will go ahead and post a photo of my Simply Vintage quilt. I still have one border left to put on. It has a vine, a star or two and a gazillion leaves.
My Hawaiian quilt is hiding behind it on my design wall. I have a block that I want to re-do on that and then all that will be left to do is put in the setting blocks and triangles and send it to the quilter. I really would like to get that done before Christmas....lol !

That's all for now. I went to the Michael Buble concert last night and stayed up past my bedtime. I need a hot bath, my jammies, and my rice bag. I need sleep.

A Quick Share....

Had the chance to visit my SIL Tam in her new diggs....and made her a little something as a housewarming. I used the same pattern for this apron as I used for the ones I made for my girls this Christmas.
I'm sorry that I didn't get a closer shot...I just love the words on the fabric: Fresh, Renew, True, Authentic. All words that describe this dear friend of mine.
This pic is of her adorable Sphinx kitty Newbie...........A tiny little hairless ball of energy! I Love her!
