March 22, 2015

Hello everybody:)

Busy week and lots of rain:) Am SO read for the sunshine!!!!!

Hubby and I went to see Colton Dixon... he was on American Idol... and Matthew west at the Expo Center just about 30 min away:) Terrific concert!!!! Love when we go do things together!!!

MIL stayed home by herself... has been doing that for about 2 weeks now since SIL left. She got really lonely on Thursday and hubby came home and got her convinced to go into a nursing facility. Of course he hasn't had the time to go get her signed up yet:( Maybe Tuesday. If there are no rooms available they do have like a hotel option... she can stay as long as she wants and then check back out. Told hubby to get her in that and she can wait until a room opens up for her. She is very social and being by herself and not being told what to do every minute of every day by FIL is finally getting to her. I on the other hand would love the new found freedom... oh wait  I already have that:) haha!!!

Got lots to show you:)
Love these Snowmen! This was a Thangles BOM at our local quilt Shop that has since closed:(

Dolly put it all together and machine embroidered the snowmen.

this one is my favorite !!!! Can you guess why??? Ummmmm

Backing.... Dolly always lets me play:)

My Jaybird's Science Fair quilt all done:)

I used Botanical fabric line. I had SO much fun quilting this one!!!!

Backing and look at that binding!

Had one embroidery order this week....

My 2 BOM's done for the month:)

 
 I have had this in a Ziploc bag for probably a year. Well it is the next project to get done. It is called Fractured Pervalong. http://www.displacementactivity.com/p/pervalong.html
Only 2 more paper pieced borders to go:)
 
My Dear Jane blocks are finally get put together in a rather extraordinary setting:) Saw a Modern quilt set like this and so the light bulb went off:) Took forever... ok only 2 weeks to figure out the other fabric needed. It is pinned and draped on the right. Now to find more of it.... I only had that one piece:(

Hexies!!!!! These are all leftover fabrics from a BOM a few years ago:) They are PB&J line from Basic Grey. I think I have enough to make a lap size... I can always add another solid color around all the diamonds. This is the first diamond and I have lots more fabric to make into Hexies:)

Finished the binding on this one for Karen last night so I could get a picture for you.

It is a wedding signature quilt. The one on the right is a pretty close picture of where the wedding was held.

Love the feathers! Karen machine embroidered the hearts.

Backing:) I added a sleeve and she will give to bride next month:)
 
Well better get back to working on the fractured project!
Have a great week!!!!
Hope we get lots of sunshine this week!!!!
