Blog Slug Here!!

No one will probably read this post because you have all given up on me, since it's been FOREVER since I posted!!  Sigh...  I'm blaming it on my laptop.  Old, ancient technology that takes forever to boot up and then I have to figure out how too get all my iPhone photos over to it for posting...ugh!!

Just because I haven't posted in a while, don't think I've been a slacker in my sewing room!! 😜  You can look at my list of things made on my side bar to see how busy I've been.  Seeee??

After my sweet Daddy passed away, we moved my dear Mother into a much smaller apartment in her same senior living condo in Florida.

So, I made her a new queen bedspread sized quilt with matching shams.

She really loved it!!  Her and my favorite color is periwinkle blue.  I'd been collecting florals in that color for years!! 

Then I made her a wall quilt to hang over her bed 

from the leftovers from the big bed quilt!!

I went on a spring quilt retreat in April with my local guild, and worked on two quilts.

One was the mystery quilt for our guild.  I used up lots of leftover scraps from previous projects.

It was fun to do a bit every month, after the instructions were put in our monthly guild newsletters.

I am very happy with how it turned out!  A Happy Scrappy BUSY Christmas quilt!!

And I also worked on a kit from Connecting Threads called Granny Love.

They were soft mini-prints that were very 30's like in appearance...so it really did look very old and vintage.   

I did swap out two light solids from the kit for two modern word print fabrics.

Yogi is still hanging in there.  He just turned 16, and although he is almost completely blind and deaf, he still is the apple of our eyes!

So, what are you all working on these days?
