Stitch Me Up!

I signed up!

For my very first blog hop.
I'm so excited!
If you'd like to join in check out
for all the details.

I was busy being Grandma this week.
Watched the 3 youngest grandkids while Mommy and
Daddy are on a (much needed) sunny vacation.
What a joy getting all those angel kisses.
Here is a picture of the art project we made.

Could not get them to look at the camera, 
smile and hold up their signs.
One things for sure.....
Grandmas need a nap everyday to. 

I just have to finish binding my
 "rescued" nine patch.
 Oh,what a beauty!
Wait til you see......

Pinwheels of Yesteryear

A finish for ME!
I actually started this quilt three years ago at retreat.
Or four?

You know how I love 30's reproduction prints.

Such cheery fun fabrics!

The pattern, by Barbara Campbell, was free 
from Hancock fabrics

I think this red floral backing fabric is perfect,
don't you?
Of course, polka dots for the binding.

I have one of my "rescue" tops on the machine now.
Two in a row for me......yeah!!!  

Have a great weekend.

A New Year.....A New Start

While I'd love to promise that I am going to be a better blogger from now on.....
all I can say is I'll try. Harder.
For those of you that blog, don't you feel like you just run out of interesting things to share?
I sure do! 
My life is pretty dull compared to some on the web
(not that I am complaining mine you....drama free is good)
I'm not nearly as productive as some of my fellow bloggers.
Almost makes me feel lazy! LOL

I quilted a few customer quilts this holiday that I'd like to share.
The photos aren't the best.
 I miss my front porch in winter!

Chris made 2 Laurel Burch Christmas quilts.
The fabrics were so fun and bright.
I used metallic gold thread on both quilts.
That black background fabric made the quilting just POP.

Check out this T Shirt quilt Kim made for her son.
I love her orange, grey and black combination.
What a treasure.

Look at this fun print she used for the backing!

I'm so happy the holidays are over, aren't you?
While I love the decorating, baking, eating, 
shopping and family visits
with 6 grandkids it's WILD!


Hope your having a grand weekend.
We are mourning our Packer loss here.
Well, someone is.  

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about my new love.
It's on tonight!

I know, I'm a little late to the dance.
I played catch up over the holiday 
and watched Season 1 & 2.
