My tiny quilt

 I finished my Friday block party block and didn't feel like working on my king size quilt.  I was thinking of doing a string quilt with spider webs but something else happened.  Now I need to back it and finish it but I laid it out with the binding so you can get the idea.

  Now why would I want a tiny quilt not even the size of a piece of paper?  I'll let you all ponder that.  I have a plan for it, that is near and dear to my heart.  And no it is not for a guinea pig that my boys will not be getting.  I'll let you know when it is done.

SLACKER and An update on my friends brother!

So I am a slacker and didn't sew this week as I had toothache.  I finally got to the dentist and I am feeling better, not great but better.   

My friends brother that was missing called and was in Florida.  His parents are driving to pick him up.  I am just so happy that he is safe. 

Oh and I had a birthday and decided to spend my birthday money on a used serger.  I am a brand girl and love my Bernina 830 so I got a used Bernette 334DS off of ebay.  Can't wait to get it up and sewing!

Thanks Barb, I think?

I now spend my internet time trying to enter free giveaways.  And so I must mention the one on Alderwood Quilts so I have another entry. 

Off to look for more giveaways, First stop Bewjeweled quilts to look for more sites...

My centers are all done!

I finished yesterday.  Now to work on the settings.  Here are the pictures for those who care.  After the first six my husband commented, yeah they all look the same.   Men...  Oh course how many times does he as for a critique of his leather working skills?

In other news, most of the time I worked on this I was thinking of my friend's little brother, Eric,  who is missing.  I can't imagine what her family is going through. I have brothers of my own and I have lost one and it was hard, not knowing would be worse I think.  My prayers are with their family.

Block party week 1

This was my square for Block Party Friday.  I don't know if I like piecing denim but it looks cool.  The spots are just water.

Things to come

In an effort to further develop my talent of sewing I am starting this blog.  It will be my brag page, and I mean that in a non prideful way.  I want to have a place to document my talents for future generations, so if my kids or grandkids care to see what I create it will be there, even if the artifacts are long gone.  I'll be posting pictures of my projects. Currently I am working on a buck a block quilt for my bed, training pants for a little one, and planning a Round Robin and a Dear Jane.  Pictures to come.  Here is a picture of the buck a block I am working on.  This is the display from Quiltin Country.  Mine is a work in progress I'll post pictures in a few days.
