Spring Sewing Party

This weekend Kelly is hosting the Spring Sewing Party

and I am totally BUMMMED

that I am not going to be able to participate this time!

We are going

to see the Monster Truck Show

and I will be away from my sewing machine.


I had such a great time at the last sewing party

and I met a lot of awesome quilters.

I know that everyone is HARD CORE

and a lot of great projects will be completed this weekend!

Since I won't be able to participate,

I thought that I would show you what I am working on right now.

One is for me and one is for a "wee little one".

Ok Ladies,

just because I won't be near my sewing machine

doesn't mean that I won't

 be dropping in on the party to see what is going on!

I know that you won't disappoint me!

Until Next Time...Happy Quilting!

February CG&GQC Finish

(Rene at Luv2Kreate, this is for you...:0)

I finally finished my February CG&GQC project.

I would like to introduce you to

"Simply Red",

my latest creation.

None of the fabrics are from the same fabric line,

but when you mix them all together

they work.

Here is the back of the quilt.

Quilt Stats:

24" X 38"

Fabric Used: (Moda) Simple Abundance, Snippets, & Panache

(Malibu Monkey used for backing)

Machine Pieced, Machine Quilted

Until Next Time...Happy Quilting

More Progress

Watching the Olympics every night

makes it difficult to get caught up on anything!

(Not to mention that I am so tired the next morning.)

But with a little help

I did make more progress:

The quilting & binding are done.

My Little Person put on the binding clips.

Now I just have to focus on sewing down the binding

while I am watching American Idol!

Until Next Time...Happy Quilting!

Despite having to use these again,

progress was made on my February CG&GQC project.

It all began in a very  "technical" way:

(I am sure that the design gods would cringe at this! It is drawn on the

back of my grocery list)

 I began cutting

and some sewing was done with a little help from my Litte Person.

Until Next Time... Happy Quilting!

Look What I Won!

A few weeks ago

I won this German Reproduction Swag Kit:

I love the colors...especially the RED

(including the red ribbon that came with it)!

These are my favorites...(especially the little duck):

BTW- Jennifer is having another giveaway!

This time it is for fat quarters of her newest line: So St Croix.

Check it out here.

Thanks again Jennifer!

Until Next Time ...Happy Quilting!

I especially love this T-Rex because this is how I feel on

some mornings!

3. Red Accessories

4. Of course.....Red fabric

What are some of your favorite things?

Until Next Time... Happy Quilting

I decided to join in because there is no shortage of RED at my house!

Since I have a lot of RED,

I will break this up into two posts.

Catergory #1: Valentine Decorations

And my First Handmade Valentine from the Little Person.

(Awwwh...Be still my heart!)

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Holy Cow!

Holy Cow!

This is not Colorado or the East Coast!

This is the Deep South...Mississippi!

Last night we got a few inches of snow.

I know that it is not much but it NEVER snows down here!

The entire city has shutdown

& we are enjoying a 4 day weekend!

Luckily my Little Person's snow bib and snow boots from

last year's trip to Mammoth Lakes still fit.

We made snow angels.

We rolled down the hill.

And we made a giant snowman.

We are definately enjoying our day in the snow.

Until Next Time...Happy Quilting!
