Lots of pictures coming your way. First to show what I've been working on for a birthday girl this weekend. I have another project in the works for school and hope to finish it before this weekend. I make my tooth fairy pillows as a pillowcase that you can change out and made to fit one of the travel pillows. Love to do this so they can change the case out and take it with them in the car. x
Kim Diehl is one of my favorite designers of quilts. I have all her books and here she is at our guild meeting and even classes. You talk about a happy camper. I couldn't wait. I will post more pictures of this adventure soon. The quilt in the picture above Kim is the one her first class was on. Her technique on applique's makes it fun and easy to temp this. x First we had our guild meeting and I'm so sorry I didn't get great pictures of all the show and tell. Blurred pictures from being at an angle to stand in line with mine. x
Come on back to see a parade of Kim's quilts, I know you'll want to buy all of her books once you see these.
I also wanted to share with you how I will be picking my surprise giveaway names. See this little antique enamel bowl with all ya's little faces and pictures in it. I cut up all my followers cute pictures and will be adding to this bowl, so you can be picked. This will be so much easier than having to count and figure. So if you want a chance to win sign up and it may become your lucky day soon.
If you see the lady at the top, on my blog that means I'm having a surprise giveaway. I just love having a giveaway like this. You just never know. I took my followers and the last two post comments for you to be entered and Colleen @ http://colleensquiltingjourneytooz.blogspot.com/ has won her a prize. All I'm going to ask her if she wants it handmade or something she can put her talent into and it will be on her way. I'll show pictures once she tells me. I appreciate those that follow and comment even though I haven't been able to post much lately.
The table topper above is from scraps I had from my apron days. Love this coffee print and polka-dots is another favorite. So put a little embroidery with them and this is what I came up with. Hope to list it in my etsy shop soon.
The tutorial is being made for the potholders and will be posted when Colleen gets back with me.
I'm sorry for the size of the pictures above, I forgot my camera and another lady took pictures and sent them to me. This is at our Treasured Friends meeting. I couldn't enlarge them at all without getting them blurred. Beautiful quilts to share just wish they were bigger. Thank-you Ethel for taking the pictures.
Lots of pictures of Treasured Friends Quilting Bee Retreat, I missed Marilyn's quilt, I'll have to take a picture at our meeting. I was waiting for the border and guess I missed it all together, a cute baby quilt.
When entering the welcoming warmth of my grandmother's home, her quilt frame had to be moved away from the front door to make room for family and friends to gather. With this in mind, the door is always opened to welcome you.
I have been married to my best friend for 35 years. We have been together since the 7th grade, which at that time I came home and told my Mom who I was going to marry. She just laughed. We have 2 children, a son and a daughter, who is married. We feel her husband is one of ours and they gave us three of the grandest grandkids anyone could ask for.
I love to be creative in all areas, but love to make something out of finds from estate sales to flea markets (trash to treasure). I'll be taking pictures of before and after shots and instructions on how some of the items are made. Sewing is my relaxing hobby. I started in the 5th grade summer.
I know all of us who are creative have big dreams and I hope all of yours come true.
I am blessed to have received so many tags/awards in the past. I feel bad when I cannot do them all justice and hate the thought of some friends feeling left out when they are not chosen. All my blogging friends are special and important to me, so therefore, I request to remain tag/award free.
