Design Wall Monday

Two finishes this week.........  Lucinda's Gift is complete at last...I began it in 2011 as a Quilt Along and got the top done and then put it aside........  Well, it is finally quilted and bound.........  It was mailed Friday to my granddaughter and she should get it tomorrow....... 


The next big finish was completing the final block for Leanne's House.......  I loved making this quilt.  A good mix of piecing, applique and embroidery........  Each block assembled quickly until the last half of the last block...... We moved........Twice.......  Its parts got separated.......  Thanks to the encouragement of Judy at Patchwork Times I gathered it all together and finished the last block........  Now to find some one to quilt it for me..........  I don't mind confessing that my hand quilting is abysmal at best and I want something special on this quilt that will enhance the embroideries........

Check out Patchwork Times HERE for other things being made around the world.....  There will also be a Quilt Along starting on Friday..........  I have my fabric and I am ready.....

On Needles Friday.....


No, not my knitting needles......  I was surprised to see that I had not had the computer on since Monday....

I have been tackling my March List.........


I finished one item from the February list.........  One smocked dress ready for Abigail Jane......


Thanks to the pattern from Erin at Dogs Under My Desk I made a new harness for Wade Hamilton.  Of course I had to take 24 pictures to get one worthy of showing........



I also made a harness for Daisy and TJ...........  The tutorial was well written and even I could follow it....  Rebekah is going today for more fabric for more harnesses..........I am glad they are easy to make.



I finished the pillow I wanted to make to match the quilt I finished in January..........


I was pleased at how well it turned out.........

I also completed 7 ruffle scarves............  No pictures of them.  If you have seen one you have seen them all.

Design Wall Monday

Every Monday Judy at Patchwork Times hosts Design Wall Monday.......  A great place to see what others are working on and to get new ideas.........  Also a great place to get you in trouble as you thrust aside your current projects and start another one..........  To compensate Judy also host a monthly list to encourage you not to get too far off track.............

On my list this month was to finish the last block of Leanne's House......  I gathered together the different parts and found that I only had three embroideries to do and assemble the last half of the last block.....

Will I get that done this week?  Time will tell.

Saturday.....

Chicken Genovese for dinner tonight.........  Found the recipe when I was clearing out a few things........

Of course I forgot to take the picture when all the ingredients were there but here are the last three....



I can't decide if it looks better cooking or smells better cooking....  Has Rosemary and Basil in it not to mention red pepper, onions and mushrooms cooked in olive oil.....



Add a tossed salad and dinner is done.......  Next time I am going to serve it over linguine...

You can find the recipe HERE


The postal service delivered my fabric for the Quilt Along that Judy at Patchwork times is hosting HERE..... I could not find what I needed upstairs so I placed an order with Thousands of Bolts HERE.....  They have a color matcher on their website that helps with the selection.....Each of the blues have a touch of green in them.  This is going to be one great quilt...........
