Not a great week:(

Image
The allergies won this week:( I spent more time drugged up, dizzy, and on the couch then anything:(
So a short post it will be.... No quilting done... did get one started but that was about it:(

This is my Millie so far. Have one more row to add all the way around for rosette #1. Then to hand sew them all together. I ordered the papers for the next 2 Rosettes. Using Kaffe and solids.
I went to Lunch Bunch and got to pick up my new signs from Shelley. I designed them and she stained and painted them:)
She did an awesome job! The She Shed is a nickname from one of my customers:) Too funny!!!
Then it was all downhill for the rest of the week:( I am feeling better finally today! Hope it holds!
Have a great week and stay healthy!!!

Happy September:)

Hellllooooo Fall:)  Well at least for this week:) It has been a lovely cool 50's in the morning and only up to the 80's:) Of course by the end of the week we will be back up to the higher 90's.... but we are enjoying what we have!!! The cold front also pushed away any chance of Irma or Katia coming to us:) Hooray!!! I have been watching the weather channel... mostly muted cuz they talk WAY too much! But the devastation is real! Whole islands are flattened:( I always feel for the poor people that had no way to go anywhere!!! Hang in their Floridians!!!! I did get some quilting done this week and also attended my Bee:) Yea!!! Love the camaraderie we have!!! They lift me up so much:)
So on with the pictures:)


Elaine made this ginormous... almost king size... Christmas quilt and wanted it Lou'd:)

Most squares dictated how they were to be quilted by their pattern:) So i wasn't too hard:)
Those poinsettias in the border were killer though... lots of them!!!!
Marylyn mad…

Went from wet to cool and back to hot and humid:(

The weather has been very unusual for us! I think Harvey did help with that:( There are evacuees in our area and more to come:( SO many organizations have been wonderful! I am a big supporter of our HEB! They took their kitchens to affected areas and fed so many people! They are taking contributions at every check out and will pass it on to the Red Cross, Salvation Army and Cajun Navy:) Please give wherever you can!

My week was a little slow as the rain dried up the Ragweed decided to bloom:( UGH! That is one of my seasonal allergies so it hit me pretty hard this week:( Changed up my meds and am feeling better again:) I did lose 2 days though:(

Upon saying that there was some quilting that went on:) I am about halfway done with a big Christmas quilt so you should see it next time:) On with the show......


This is Marlene's Disney quilt.

You can really see it on the backing:)
My Lucy Boston crosses top is all done:) YEA!!!!!

Went from Hot to VERY wet!!!

Hi all:)

Hope everyone is nice and dry!!! I So feel for the people in South Texas especially Rockport and Houston area!!! We have only gotten some of the outer bands from Harvey... lucky!!! They had been predicting anywhere from 2-8 inches for us and we are at 1.5 so far:) Of course he is sitting there and sending more and more rain our way:( I think we can handle what he sends us but I know there are cities that can not!! Please keep them all in your prayers!

I was home most for the week so there was quilting going on!!!

First up is Jill's fractured quilt:)
She just wanted straight lines outlining all the pieces. Used a dark burgundy thread throughout and it looked brown on the brown and purple on the purple:)
Turned out awesome:)
Brenda made this Blue Squares quilt.
Lots of loops and swirlies:)
Great backing fabric!
Another one from Brenda. It has stars:) Surprise!! I didn't see them until I opened the quilt to load it.
She let me custom quilt it so it really turned out mode…

Still hot:(

Hi All:)

Busy week here with the AC going almost all day long:( Temps close to 100 but then you factor in humidity and it's more like 104:( UGH!!!! I am ready for Fall!!!! They have pumpkin stuff on the shelves so it should get cooler soon... right???
First up is Sue's quilt. Not sure of the name but love the stained glass fabrics!
Kept the quilting simple but used a ruler a lot. Feathers in the border even if you can't see them that well.
Backing is the place to see the quilting:)
This is Dianna's first ever quilt:) WOW!
She is a Junior in college and just made her HS tshirt quilt.
She did an awesome job and all I did was meander all over with a pale yellow thread:)
Margaret made this sweet baby quilt.
Purple has really been trying to grow on me and I am trying to embrace it more and more:)
Lots of swirls and some feathers too:)
Hobby Lobby had their shadow boxes on sale so I could get my beautiful ribbons all set up:) I even made some room on my love me wall:)
My woo…

Hot, hot, hot!

It has as you can see a hot week! I guess it is August though:) I am ready for the kids to go to school and I bet they are too!!!
Was a great trip to Dallas area this past week! We went shopping at some of my favorite shops and also attended the Plano Quilt Show. Some beautiful quilts for sure!
Before I left I did get some quilting done:)

Cam made this cross quilt for her in laws. It has their last name and wedding date on it.
She just wanted loops all over and it turned out so beautiful! 
And a solid back to show off my loops:)

This one will hang in her sewing room. I looped except where the pictures were.... the 4 corners and center... those I outlined.
This is the sewing block:)
Once again you get to see all my quilting:)

This is my shopping haul:) Yes there was a cat theme going on:) You know I really need to make a quilt with all my cat fabrics one day:)
Am home most of this week:) yea!!!! Will crank up the AC in the studio and quilt all day:)
