So Little Time

Unless I am working on something for someone else, this is the time of year when my art suffers from the lack of time.

But I have been picking away at a wall hanging quilt of this snowman. This is the final drawing for the pieces I am cutting for the applique. I designed the pattern myself, first sketching it out in my book and then creating an electronic version of it.

The finished quilt will be 20" x 18".

Movie Night!

Not feeling so well. So, I am gonna curl up in a warm blanket, soft pillows and with a good movie!

This is a good movie and can't wait to see it again. With Glenn Ford and Donna Reed. (Can you believe Leslie Neilsen is in it, too?)

A Different Sort of Portfolio!

I really love hand quilting. It's such a nice, peaceful craft. I enjoy it so much I never considered trying the quilting on my sew machine. Recently, I decided to make the venture and now I really love machine quilting.

I really love hearts! They show up a lot in my knitting, too.

Of course with a last name like mine, you KNOW I am going to do one in pea pods, like the one below!

There are so many patterns that can be done on the machine. Some of the patterns I would never consider doing by hand. The time it would take and the the toll it would take on the fingers.... But now the sky's the limit!

First Free Motion Quilting Attempt

This is my first time quilting sandwiched layers together with my domestic sewing machine. And this is my first rag quilt!

I wanted to learn how to use my Singer to do the decorative quilting. Hand quilting is nice, but takes so long and really takes its toll on the finger tips. Machine quilting is much quicker and doing filler patterns is much more reasonable.

And Tada! The blue side with the rag seams is the front and the multi=colored blocks is the back.

This quilt is approximately 6o" x 71". Perfect size to snuggle under and long enough to stretch out long legs! Fabrics on the top and bottom are cotton and sandwiched between is cotton batting.

Fall Is Definitely in New England

So beautiful driving around the hills and winding roads. Darting here and there for my daughter's activities, food shopping and other errands is so delightful

I took this pic driving back from the high school, one early morning.

Baby Quilt Log Cabin

This quilt is 42x42" Log Cabin quilt, perfect to a baby. Usually with a traditional cabin block, the center is red, symbolizing "Home is where the heart is". Well, mine's green, symbolizing a modern home that's Green and environmentally friendly! LOL!

Also, a stroller quilt to match. Perfect size for a stroller or carriage, without all the bulk of the baby quilt.

And to keep the baby happy, I also made a crinkly toy. Babies love tags so the flower petals double as the stimulating tags!!!

Quilt Top Done.

And still waiting for the binding fabric for my last Trip Around The World quilt.

Since it's only a 9x9 square, I decided to go with the Log Cabin 7s pattern (All the upper corners make a 7).

Now, sandwich, quilt it and lastly, more binding!

BALLOON!

This is how my morning started! What fun.

The balloon was at first piloted by a newbie, but when he missed 4 great landing possibilities, the instructor finally took over and landed the balloon PERFECTLY in a less than perfect place.... The cul del sac, at the end of Cobbler Lane!

Usually the balloons land on Thatcher Street, the next street over, but I guess the pilot in training missed that chance.
