Sign's of Peace Quilt -TM

I really should be quilting instead of in front of this computer, I bet I would get a lot more done! LOL I just had to do a quick post of this quilt that I designed and quilted for a friend of mine. The quilting was inspired by Linda Taylor. This quilt is bound but the pictures turned out blurry.

Have a great night, all I'm off and running......

Hard to quilt with Teeth Involved!

When I heard that both my children need braces the thought didn't occur to me that it may affect my quilting. Well, it has both financially and time wise. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my kids and cherish the short amount of time they will live here! However, when your son has to have his braces on one day and then oral surgery the next; it's a little taxing. He came through it like a trooper and he thinks he's something else because he had three baby teeth in that one hole!

So after his surgery, mind you he is pretty loopy from the sedation, I thought it would be fun to stop at the animal shelter to look ay kitties. Yeah, you see where this is going.... Well, we lost our cat Hasbro about 6 weeks ago, he was 19. When we wlked into the shelter there were his carbon copies!!! I was hooked! So, yes, life with cats now begins. They are warming up to our shih-tzu slowly. I think it will be fine. They were named Ozzie and Harriet and I think the names will stand :)

Need to do some securing of the house as they are into everything!!! Then I hope to get to some quilting :) Off and running! Have a great day!

Two Projects Done!

Well, I have just realized how much of a blessing a new router can be! I uploaded these two pictures in seconds! Usually, it seemed, I would have to go and cook dinner or something. LOL As I mentioned in my last post, I have listening to I'm addicted!!! That stuff is huge for getting my creative juices flowing. The latest show I can't get enough of is Pat Sloan's Creative Talk Radio. LOVE IT! So, latley, I have been getting overwhelmed with projects. The stars you see have been made for our quilt guild, RQK, for Moda's, Just One Star, can comfort a soldier. So, of course, I had to make four! So they are done :)

One of the ladies, in a smaller group I am in, brought back a beautiful fabric from Hawaii. She wanted to share this with us so we decided it would be a great Round Robin Project :) The fabric is the white, green and blue bali fish. My center block is of a fish, I'll try to find a picture to post, later. The last border on this on is my applique border. Thank goodness she top stitched the center or I don't know what I would have done!

I do have the next Round Robin to work on and it is a border of squares. Thinking maybe hourglass blocks. Then there are the place-mats, I'm doing 6. Two for one group for an adult foster care home and four for the other for the craft table at our guild show in Sept. Way too much more to think about... LOL So we'll keep it simple :)
Off and Running! Have a great day :)
