Happy Monday Morning

Only 5 more days till I get to go see these two grand babies... look at Molly Jean, I don't think she could have a bigger smile than that... she's such a little cutie..

Here's Tyler waving to his Daddy in the desert and waiting patiently for him to hurry and get home.... He tells everyone his daddy is in the desert getting the bad guys and he is a hero...


Finished all the blocks for my scrappy quilt.. this picture show a few missing but I did get them done last night... now hopefully soon I can get all the blocks sewn together, they may have to wait till I get back from Denver.. I have lots to do this week to get ready. This quilt was fun to make and yep I cut out way to many pieces so I had to start another scrappy quilt with them..
This is the new scrappy I started last night with the left overs. I won't make it as big as the other one. That first one has 1008 pieces of fabric... that was a lot of 2x31/2 pieces to cut...



Suzy Zoo is the most adorable fabric. It's hard to find and I do have some that I must have gotten from ebay a few years ago. These 2 little ones are so cute, she is making them for her first grand baby. ... how fun.

Friday 16 2010

Gosh it's so hot and muggy here today... I couldn't wait for summer to get here, now I can't wait for fall.

Today was a busy day.... but it doesn't really seem like I got much done. I had customers in and out a few times today and JC Penney here repairing the rod on the new drapes they installed a couple of weeks ago... it's so nice to have new drapes. For the pink room hubby made a cornice window box and I will quilt some fabric to cover it and make some side curtain. That will all have to wait till after summer though.... hope it turns out pretty.. I have never made curtains...so we will see..

A few more customer quilts to share. I can't remember the name of this one but it seems like wash day or something like that, doesn't matter it's just adorable.




Pretty little pansy table topper...


Here I was just trying out a new app from my iphone. It takes black and white photo's and they are suppose to look vintage... what do you think.. I guess it all depends on what you are taking a picture of.... both of these are from shelves in my quilting room... see that Better Homes and Garden sewing book... my Grandma gave it to me years ago.... the very first quilt I ever made was one that she helped me with.. it was a little car quilt for my son...

scrappy all done...

Here's the scrappy one all done waiting to be picked up... I love this quilt. She chose a meander/stipple pattern for it using china blue thread. The back of the quilt has the cutest polka dot fabric.. I'm going to have to find out where she purchased that one.
I worked on my scrappy one a bit yesterday and last night in between sneezing and itching. This is a bad time of the year for me with allergies..... and it's so dang hot here right now so that doesn't really help either.
The other day my little grand daughter Rylee was here and wanted to sew a pillow..... one with decorative stitches, you can't really see the stitches in the picture but they are all around the edge of the pillow on the white fabric... she chose a different stitch for each edge. She is such a silly and fun little thing to have around...

A couple of the pillow cases I made for my grand children.. they love them....

I love the sausage way of making pillow cases, so much nicer and easier to make....now I will want to make one to match and store every quilt in :)
Stay Happy Stitching

What's on the machine?


Scraps, scraps, scraps... I know I have said this lots of time but scrappy quilts are my most favorite.... This quilt belongs to a friend...

I'm going to have to make one for sure.... have I already started one.... yep.. I couldn't wait... I already had a bunch of 2 x 3 1/2 pieces cut out from who knows what but I have had them for a while.. so I had a head start on it...I cut out a bunch more and made 6 blocks last night and 6 more this morning.... so it's coming along pretty fast but for now I have to get to the quilting room and work on customer quilts... as soon as I'm done quilting this one I will post a picture of it.....I love looking at all the different fabrics in this quilt, some I recognize that I gave her....

Awe, this is the life... how sweet is this? My little grand baby Molly Jean. Relaxing in the pool she fell asleep. She is so cute, she's a little thumb sucker baby. If you take her thumb out of her mouth she right away puts the other one in. I can't wait to see her in 3 weeks.

I'm not sure yet what I want to do with this fabric. I bought it awhile back but haven't decided yet the quilt pattern I want to use with it yet....
any ideas???
Here are a few more of the beach bags I made.. don't forget you can go on over to "To Quilt n Sew" for the pattern and while your there pick out some really cute fabric for it.... you can also get the screen in many different colors. Very easy and fun bag to make, everyone that I've made one for loves it...



Hope you all have a good day and get lots of sewing done... that's my plan for the day... Take care and be good....

Customer quilts

Just a quick post today in between cleaning house.. I wanted to work out in the yard today but it's so darn hot and muggy out that I knew I would last long enough to get anything done.

So here I am showing off customer quilts again.. sorry I just can't help it...They are all so pretty... lol
Another Diamond Dust, this time made with beautiful greens... love it....


And of course you all know I love this one, it's PINK.... I really really need one of those embroidery machines :)

here's the back of it, all PINK...
Beautiful work here Julie....




Could it be any prettier....
Ok this post was not quick after all.. it took forever to upload pictures. Back to house cleaning now.... have a wonderful Sunday...

July 7 2010

It's hard to find the time to get on here to post and visit other blogs as often as I want to.... but I am here now for a few minutes with some eye candy to share..... this is the quilt from the previous post, all quilted and looking pretty... I love this quilt.. it was one of those I didn't want to call and tell her it was ready...


Love the fabric she used for the backing too ....

Who doesn't love Winnie the Pooh and Tigger too?





Over the holiday weekend I got into making pillow cases.. seems like everyone was making them awhile back but I never did get into it until now.... guess I am a little slow... they were fun to make using the sausage method.... I made all my grand children one too.. I will try and post them at a later date...

How cute are these little hair clips, I made these two for my grand daughter Rylee.. she loves crafty stuff and makes her own hair bows.. I will have to post a few she has made... she makes some cute ones... If you want to make this one go on over to Polka Dot Pineapple blog, she has a tutorial for it...... quick, easy and fun to make... she uses bobby pins but I used clips because that's what Rylee uses in her hair.... and they worked out just fine....Oh Barb over at Bejeweled Quilts made some really cute ones too....
