Sunday update

I forgot to do the Sunday fabric update...I made a Table Mat and matching hot pads from stash. Also, I fell off the fabric wagon...I ordered fat quarters of a new collection by Pat Sloan...but I WILL use it! I have the cut the strips needed for the weekend bargellobowl...can't wait! It will be pink...I seem to be on a pink streak. LOL.

Boy I sure do have trouble blogging. I wanted the banner picture (above) to go all the way across the page...but of course it didn't, and I have no idea how to fix it. But I still like it, so won't delete it yet. Maybe someone out there in blogland will know how to fix it and tell me!

Sent the Carolina Crossroads mystery quilt to the longarm quilters this week. Can't wait to get it back and see it. I've never made a quilt with so many pieces...little pieces. LOL. Was very pleased with how it turned out. Also sent the pink hugs quilt I made for my daughter-in-law, Theresa. About time!

Made 8 pincushions yesterday...sent them home with my DGDs to stuff, then I will add vintage buttons and beads to the tops. They are just 4 patch tops, but I used Decadent Victorian fabrics and they sure are pretty. My goal is to make 20 to take to retreat in for every person. Would also like to make some sewing machine thingees (you sit your sewing machine on them and can store stuff in the pockets) for the ladies. They are really easy to make and take just 2 fat quarters...heaven knows, I have enough

Sunday Report

I bought no fabric this week and am continuing to work on my mystery quilt. I've finished the step 6 pieces and am now working on the step 7 blocks. This is going to be a great quilt! Been thinking about sashing it with white...will continue to think on it. I have a terrible time putting together anything on poor little damaged brain just Should be interesting...heh heh heh. Everyone's mystery quilts are so very different and so very beautiful...what a wonderful pattern. I printed out the label too...can't wait to be able to sew it on.

Sunday Report

Well...let's see...I didn't really bust any stash this week...just what I'm using for Bonnie's mystery quilt, also used a small cut for the quilt sandwich for my grandaughter's quiltlet. That is what Step 4 is sitting on...bright, huh! I'm still working on her dog is Kayden's birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETIE!!! I haven't put a picture up of the quiltlet yet...don't want Kayden to see it. I bought no fabric, so that in itself is

Another Whoo Hoo!!

Step 4 is done! Such tiny, tiny My Companion Angle ruler is on its way, so will wait for its arrival before starting on Step 5, which is a good thing...I need a few days I need to finish a wall hanging/painting of my grandaughter's dog, Cami...the piece is her 11th birthday present.

Whoo Hoo! Step 3 completed!

Finally...step 3 of Bonnie's mystery is finished. Couldn't sleep last night so got busy. I tired of tiny, tiny nine patches. Step 4 is cut and ready to about tiny...those triangles are almost a figment of my tiny imagination.

Sudoko Sunday

I actually finished the Sudoko New Years quilt top. Well, not finished, but the top is done to the sashing point. I will put the border on tomorrow...I can't decide if I want to quilt it myself (really simple xxxxxs or something like that) or take it to the longarmer...decisions, decisions! This is all from stash! When it is finished it will go to DD #1...she is a Sudoko puzzle fan and truly has a math brain!

Ok...after looking at this picture several times...IT IS WRONG! I swear I checked each block before sewing so it would be I just need to decide if I can live with it as it is...DRAT!!!
