Another New Leaf

Comment 1 Standard

Ok, ok, ok, I promise I will try to do a little better. I guess you know by now, I’m not a very good blogger. Oh well. I did finish the baby quilt. image
It went to a beautiful baby boy, a very good friend’s grandson. These are the things that make me really happy. It’s the small things after all.
Hopefully I will post more than once this week.
Stay tuned…..

Ahhh

Spring is not officially here as we had another blast of 30 degree temps last night, but it is trying. The baby chicks are growing, the ducks are eating us out of house and home and have more than tripled in size. We moved the babies in the chicken coop with the big girls. Right now they just think the little things are slightly annoying. That is if they actually think at all. Haha. Anyway, there has not been a ton of time to sew with the farm duties but I plan on at least trying to clean up in there a bit today.
My very next project is to quilt a baby quilt for a baby that is due next week. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. After that, I will be doing some repair work. An online friend sent me some vintage 30’s fabrics to repair some of my grandmother’s quilts that are in desperate need.

I wanted to replace the torn areas with vintage fabrics and now I can.

I thought I would leave you with this

Frozen Water Everywhere

I know I’m not the only one who feels this way but…….I’m sick of this winter. It seems it has lasted an entire year. There is a tiny little ray of hope. We have baby farm animals!! We have a baby goat named pickles who is three weeks old. Although I’m not a huge fan of goats in general, he’s kind of cute. We also have 56 baby chicks that are a week old and two of these little guys

Ok now for the collective ahhh. Lol
I have been quilting, just not as much but here’s one little thing I worked on
image
I did finish but forgot to take the “after” photo before mailing. Oh well.
Stay tuned……

What a find!!

Today I wanted to share a vintage quilt find. A girl friend found this little lovely for me at a local consignment store. A Sunbonnet Sue quilt. image
I just love it! It is all hand quilted with a beautiful design.
image
It is all completed with prairie points
image
To top it all off, it’s my favorite color, green!

I did finish the gift for my friend. Tonight I hopefully will finish the baby quilt.

Stay tuned……

Birthday for a Friend

Leave a comment Standard

I’m almost done! I went to the local long arm rental place to quilt this quilt for a friend of mine for her birthday. Now I need to finish the binding. There is a long car trip in my future, so I suspect that will be a perfect time for the task.
image
She uses a more modern color scheme in her decorating so this quilt should be right at home. I suspect she already knows about it but if not, she will now. Haha.
Next up after finishing the binding is some hand embroidery for a friendship baby quilt.
Stay tuned….

Very Bad Blogger

Comment 1 Standard

I admit it I’ve been a very bad blogger. It’s not that I haven’t been quilting, I just haven’t been telling you about it. Haha. Oh well!

I changed the tag line to more accurately reflect the true posts from me. Not daily, what was I thinking, almost daily is more like it.

Here is one project I completed while I was away from here

Valentine Mug Rug

This is one “Valentine’s Day Mug Rug” that I completed. It’s one of a set of four. I’ve mentioned before I’m a member of an online swap group and this was our project for January. Everyone sends in four that are just alike and receives four totally different ones back. I can’t wait to see what I get. :))

Hopefully later today I can post a picture of the quilt I quilted at the long arm rental place yesterday.

Stay tuned…..

Ready to Quilt, Finally!

Comment 1 Standard

Well, with a full day off to make a last minute trip, I’m ready to quilt the Christmas quilt.   However, the crazy lady did get in the sewing room and work her magic. As I was pressing the latest seam, I discovered this….

As frequently happens, I had to fix her mistakes. However, it is finished and ready to quilt.

Perhaps tomorrow I will quilt it or maybe get something else ready to quilt. Who knows?

Stay tuned….
