Two for One


I’m still at work on my latest quilt and cleaning odd pieces out of the scrap bins.   16 blocks are done and lots of pieces are cut and ready.  Here and there throughout the day, I wander into my sewing room and sew up a block or two, or cut a square or two.  Very easy..very relaxing.  And satisfying to see all those little scraps being put to use.



Bonnie and Lori came up with the best idea!  And now I’ve joined in.  I keep these tiny squares next to my sewing machine and use them for leaders and enders while working on my quilt.



The results are another quilt in the making.  Which is so fun by itself that I have to restrain myself from sewing ahead on just bow ties.  They are 3 inches.  I don’t know if I’m going to stop at doll quilt size or keep going.  We’ll see.

Little Quilt for Autumn


My apple core doll quilt is finally finished.  It’s hand pieced and hand quilted, which is a first for me.  I don’t know if I could ever do that on a full sized quilt but I got a kick out of trying it on this little one. 


It measures 22” x 26” and there are 168 little apple cores… all different.

Life is good!

That’s all I could think of for the title of this post…because right now that’s just how I’m feeling…”Life is good.”

First of all, I’m happy to announce the winner of the 100 Blocks magazine and Schnibbles pattern, etc.…


Congratulations Angela!

I had Mr. Sunshine draw the name for me… he thought that was pretty fun.  Also, he is a lot more “user-friendly” than the Random Number Generator thing that I tried to figure out but couldn’t.



Now, meet my newest grandchild.  He’s the best reason for my happy mood!  What an adorable blessing he is.  We love him so much!

Big sister isn’t quite sure about it all. 

She doesn’t yet know about all the fun and mischief they’re going to have growing up together ☺
