W.I.P. Update


So many projects, not enough hours in the day!  🙂 

Here are some pics of what I’m working on:

There’s the “Rest Time Roll-up” mentioned in an earlier post, four more rows and it’ll be ready for borders…..

……the “Pheasant Quilt”, also from an earlier post, taking an extended break from this one…..

…….a bargello crib quilt (also, previously mentioned)….trying to think of the perfect words to applique in the brown rows…..

…..the newest addition to the W.I.P.’s, a hand-painted  “quilted” gourd birdhouse, just needs a few coats of glossy paint and it’ll be done…..

…….and another ‘quilted’ gourd in a much less finished stage, needs alot yet….

……..and, of course, there is the never-ending job of laundry, cleaning, cooking….you get my drift. 🙂

 I am waiting for a sunny day to take some pics outside of my quilt-top stash to post on my portfolio (coming soon).  Hopefully, tomorrow…….

Until then…

Be Creative!

A new dawn, a new day, a new project!

After a long weekend of yard work, I’m ready to start a new project.  I really enjoyed making Emma’s Kindergarten Roll-Up, now dubbed “Rest Time Roll-Up”, so I’m going to make another one!  I took some time over the weekend to come up with a new pattern and I’m hoping that the finished project will turn out as well as Emma’s did! 

Here’s what I’ve got going on so far:



Pretty fabrics!  These fabrics are from a fat quarter bundle called, “Neutral Mediterranean”, which I purchased from Joann Fabrics.  I’ve added white to my palette as well.

 I cut four of the five fabrics from the bundle (plus the white) into triangles to be sewn into half-triangle squares. ( That’s on the agenda for today.)  Stay tuned……

Quilting Interrupted….

Well.  We made it ten years.  Ten years of boyhood before the first trip to the emergency room.  Last night, my 10 year old son, Alex, suffered a dog bite to his bottom lip.  Is there anything worse, Mom’s, than to see your child hurting?  I doubt it. 

I wasn’t outside last night when the bite occured but it sounds like my son tried to give a neighborhood dog a hug.  Not a good idea.  He didn’t know that some dogs don’t like hugs.  Our dog loves them!   He was bit and we were off to the ER.  Three hours and 8 stitches later, we were back home and off to bed.  What a brave little boy he was!  Today, he’s a little worried about getting his stitches taken out because then he’ll lose his “coolness”.  I assured him he would still be very cool. 

Here’s a pic of the damage, if you can handle it.

I’m so just so thankful that he’s okay.

The Dressy Towel

Ahhhh!  The hanging towel.  I mean, how great are they, right?  Hands are wet, need a towel, bam!  Look,  there’s a hanging towel!  Now, some people just hang a towel over the handle on the oven door and call it good.  I can’t do that.  I have three kids!  Unless the towel is attatched to something, my towels end up in the yard!

Some people buy or make a special hanging towel made by crocheting or knitting a top that the towel is sewn onto.  You know the ones.  Well, I love the hanging towel that stays in place but,  I wanted something a little more modern.   Herego: the Dressy Towel. 

 The Dressy Towel comes in many different styles and colors and most come with a coordinating hand knit dishcloth.  Check them out at our Etsy site! 

If you can’t find a Dressy Towel that you like on the site, feel free to contact me for a custom towel.
