First off, here's a couple quilts that I managed to finish for work. This daisy quilt is so quick and easy, and doing the raw edges on the flowers makes it even faster! The sweet little ME quilt was also fast and fun, and I think the red Swell fabric goes great out on the border. What a fast charm square quilt.
Another big week for the binding business. Here's a few pictures of quilts I did for Roxanne, one of my customers. Great quilts!the picture is not very good of the one on the left. Sweet little Christmas stitcheries.
This week I had a wonderful package waiting for me on the porch. It's from Leanne in Australia. I had sent her a copy of my Kindness Matters stitchery which she already finished. There's a great picture over on her blog. Thanks Leanne! There is a really cute T quilt in the Homespum magazine that I just have to make, and the Christmas Stitchery quilt is a must! Now mind you I haven't forgotten about my Christmas project of the month. OK, I am behind on March's and haven't started April's.......but I will, I will!!!!!
Friday was a girls day out for shopping. And shopping we did. I came across this cool new notion. I am a notion freak! This is a needle case from John James called the Pebble. John James are my favorite needles that I use for putting bindings on, and what a great idea this case is. Besides look how stinkin' cute it is.
I decided there were some items I wanted to take to Goodwill. Time to get the closets cleaned out and also things from the garage that need a good home. Loaded up the PT with goodies. While I was waiting in line I ran in to an old friend and we got to chatting. She noticed I had a wooden shelf in my car that she liked....well she also had a iron shelf that I really liked so we did a swapperoooo right there while waiting in line. How great is this?! I love it, love it, and especially the hooks at the bottom. I spent the afternoon dragging it all around the house looking for the perfect spot to put it. At this point it probably will go in the bathroom, but we'll see!
A quick report from the island where our girl is! Her trip over on the boat was really, really rough. The text I got from her was "it's like a 2 hour roller coaster ride"! Yikes, but she got there safe and sound. She has spent the first four days not feeling so well, but yesterday she reported doing much better.
Guess I have talked your ears off! Just feeling a little chatty today. Kris at Dandelion Quilts has tagged me for 7 weird or random things about myself so I am going to have to think about this for a bit......there are soooo many where do I start? Also just got off the phone with Susan who I work with on Tuesdays. She has started up her own blog, SeeSueSew, what a great name is that! I am so excited. Not only is she fun to work with she is probably one of the best teachers I have been around. She will be teaching at Road To California next January. Please hop on over and give her a bloggy welcome!!!!!
Hope your week gets off to a great start and that you get some stitching done here and there!! Later alligators.
