January is almost done......

The weather has been nice and the cedar horrible:( I have been able to keep functioning so far:)

I finished one custom quilt and started the next one... both are for Tricia so hopefully it will get finished this week:)

Had Bee on Friday... always a fun time and I got some sewing done also:)

MIL has the flu and is quarantined at her assisted living center. So hubby was home all weekend:) He is off again next weekend as his Sister is due to spend a few days. I am hoping to start the remodeling of his bathroom... we have the vanity purchased and will start by tearing out the old original tile on the wall... we will go slow but steady:)

Okay enough about me:) Here are some pictures:)

Kathy made this sweet quilt for one of her grandson's.
I meandered using King Tut thread called Joseph's Coat... perfect for the many colors:)
Love the backing and border set in triangles.

Kathy also made this quilt from one of the Guild classes last year.

Just loop meandered..... love the flowers!

From winter coats to tshirts all in one week?

That is how the weather was this week....  temps ranged from 11 to 72 this week? SO crazy!!!! Will have to see what next week brings!

I did get some quilting done but can't show them all to you since they have not been picked up yet.... next week you will see them:)

Marlene made this tie quilt. 
I used red thread and meandered all over... way too busy for anything else.
She sent minkee as the backing fabric.

Here is a man's chemo quilt I finished up this week.
Water ripples all over:)
Backing fabric came with the kit:)
My FIL shirt quilt is all done:( YEA!!!!
These were all in his closet and I paper pieced the blocks using a Bonnie Hunter pattern. I did an allover meander in a light grey.
Backing was a shirting I found on sale online:) Score!! Binding is a solid blue. Now need to make  a a label and then give to my nephew.

Another male chemo quilt all done:)
I did freemotion swirls in red thread all over.
A wild backing Pat picked... it does have all the colors in it:)
Millie …

I am back... well almost:)

Tomorrow I will be back to quilting for customers:) YEA!!!

I SO enjoyed my time off!!! Not a whole lot of quilting but a bit of sewing and resting:)

We had a wonderful Christmas and both granddaughters loved their quilts:) The ABC and State map ones. MIL also came and spent the day.

New Years was just the 2 of us and we were in bed before the fireworks:)

Since 2018 started I have been going and going it seems.... joined a new Bee called We Care... chemo, PL, and pillowcases are made. Then there was the Waco Shop Hop, Lunch Bunch, and then a trip to Dallas Area for a few days. And Jan is halfway over already???

I should be home for the next 2 weeks except for groceries and my reg Bee next Friday:) Which is good because there is another cold front.... oh we have had a few and some snow also:)...that is to bring more snow and really cold temps! I am just hoping all this cold weather kills some of the bugs!!!! The heater has been lovely! So glad we got it replaced!!
