The Last Few Days

I’ve been up to quite a bit the last few days. Let’s get y’all caught up, shall we?


Have you seen my quilting room lately? I’ve moved a lawn table in and put it on cinder blocks to raise it up a little bit. I like this a lot better than trashing the dining room table all day, every day. I’m quite sure the rest of the family would agree with me.

To the right of the table is my bolts of fabric and yard+ flat folds. To the left of the table (as you look at it in the picture) is my design wall, a few shelves holding jelly rolls and whatnot plus the “unfinished ideas” that I got all excited about doing and then stalled. I’m sure all of us do that, from time to time, as inspiration hits with new ideas that “must be done right now.”


I created a table runner to go with the Diamond K quilt.


And a pillow.


The back of the pillow – I had so much left over from the quilt, I had to keep making items to go with it! It’ll take a month or more to get the quilt back from the quilter but, when it does come home, it’ll be worth it!


This will be the back of the Diamond K quilt. The local quilt lady, Cynthia, gave me this idea when we didn’t have enough to do the entire back one solid piece. The black print will center near perfectly with the front center, when done being quilted.


The entire set, ready and waiting. I think I’m done with all this, at this point. Time to move on to something else…


Caiden wanted to learn how to do a child’s version of cross stitch. This is his first attempt and he’s doing really good, so far! I find it amazing that, despite the weird noises my boy makes, he’s able to concentrate for 30 minutes or more on something like this but then his teacher keeps saying how awful he is and can’t do anything right in class.


So sweet, so handsome and gorgeous – despite ripped snow pants.


This is one of the three quilts I created for the local quilt store. It sits on the table just inside the entryway.


This one is in the window and so beautiful!!!!


You can see it when you walk by … and in the other window ….


You can see the other one!


Walking down the aisles, you can also see the other one I did – from all scraps.


The owner, Cynthia, said I could post her picture. She said she doesn’t take pictures very well but I disagree – can I get a like/comment for everyone who agrees that, while she is an older lady, she is still beautiful and full of life?


I’ll leave you with this thought for the day – what in the world could Naia be planning now!? There’s 256 each of red and white – and they are all 2.5″ squares. Any guesses? I wouldn’t use what’s on the portable design board as a guessing point – you’d be wrong.
