Monday...... A New Week


This will be a busy week.......  Something to be done every single day..........  I did get a few things finished last week..........

Six scarves for Beverly completed and delivered........



Bracelets for the girls in my Sunday School class......

They seemed to be a big hit.....






And this morning I decided to start to assemble the blocks I have completed on my redwork quilt.....



Okaye so I have only assembled three but I must get on to other things and this is a start..........

Several Projects at One Time

Saturday night the girls stopped by..........  I actually had things all set up before they got there.......  I am just a wee bit better at getting ahead of the curve.....




Picked up this pattern on the shop hop........ 
Found fabric upstairs to make it for Rebekah........  Now to get it quilted and the Yo-Yo's attached.......



This tablerunner was in the current Fons and Porter magazine......  Found some charms that had been purchased years ago and cut and assembled it this morning........  Looks like some quilting will be in my future...........

Ahhhh.... At Last a Post

Another busy week..........  I really don't understand why I don't get more done.......  I suppose one reason is that we live 15 - 30 minutes from any shopping and that really eats up the day......... 

I did get the blocks done for the Guild......  I was so pleased with the outcome that I plan to use that pattern to make Jean's quilt..........



The nest two shots are a close-up of the center fabrics......  I really like the colors in these fabrics....






And I finished the two pillow cases from the kits I bought at the shop hop......  I did cut the cuff wrong on one of them but that is just how it will stay......

The list on the door continues to grow...... 

Right now I am working on Rebekah's flamingo........... Sure hope to finish it next week........

Another Wonderful Week by Paradise Lake

On Wednesday a couple of friends came over to baste a quilt.........  We had a grand time......

We basted till noon, then broke for lunch.........  Grilled chicken salad sandwiches with deviled eggs...




and a lovely plate of fruit.....

with sweet potato pie for dessert.............



Friday was a trip to the library and a stop at Happy's.........Picked up this flower arrangement along with the witch.....



a photo holder for my pictures......


this is a close-up


a jacket for the fall.........



with a bit of sparkle added.............



and this delightful wee lamp.........  just perfect in the kitchen......  well for now at least...

and a couple of planters......  I am always on the lookout for planters because when my plants reproduce I give away the excess.......  These were just two dollars each.....



Then I found that the necklace my sister gifted me was a perfect match for the jacket (the color is off in this picture.)


I finished the scarves for Jean and started the scarves for Beverly.....



I went upstairs to pull fabric for Rebekah's Flamingo...........  I hope to get it done next week....  I am going to try machine applique for this project.....


and if all goes well I want to make a journal cover.......  I have the fabric selected for a dozen of them....  Time to start thinking about wee gifties for Christmas.........
