A Very Busy Month!

May just absolutely whizzed by, don't you think so??  Maybe it just seems that way to me, as I was soooo busy finishing up the UFO's on my list... which by the way, I DID finish!!  Every one of the 20 UFO's on my list!  Yay!!  And here are some of them!!

This quilt has been on my bucket list since I first saw it!! Bright Birches!!

I love everything about it!  The colors, the design!! Everything!

I think Connecting Threads might have a kit for it!!  I also really like the fabric I found in my stash for the backing!

I made this Dr. Seuss quilt for the nursery room we have here in our house 

for the grandbabies to use when they come to visit!!

Remember my first and only grandbaby so far, Neal?  He is on the verge of crawling... such a cutie with a million dollar smile!!

This quilt is my first from a Moda Frivol!  

The fabric is Bread and Butter by American Jane...

gosh I love her fabrics, don't you??!!

This quilt was so fun to make!  

I've always wanted to make a bear claw quilt!!

Our last guild meeting of this year was on June 1st.  So, as this was my last meeting as president, I had lots of people to thank- all my board members and committee chairs!

So, I made 30 of these little hexie shaped bee pin cushions.

The recipients seemed to like them!!  Yay!!  

They are filled with crushed walnut shells, not polyfil! 

So, Yogi is plodding along.  Every day with him is a gift!  And we both want to know what you are working on these days?


  1. You've completed so many beautiful quilts!! I love them all! Those pincushions are so cute too!

  2. Great quilts; I really like the Bright Birches quilt. Have a ton of scraps so that would be perfect for me to make. Have been trying to sort out the mess in my sewing room but I have a new puppy so it is hard to get much done. Hugs to Yogi.

  3. Beautiful!!! I love American Jane fabrics as well. I agree filling pin cushions with walnut shells and not polyfil....makes a big difference!

  4. Hi Polly. It is good to keep busy, especially when it is all fun busy.
    Yogi looks adorable. Yes, keep loving them
    Yesterday I was sitting around with my 93 year old dad, at his apartment in Ashby Ponds fancy community for rich people. we had just come home from a walk, and he was talking about dying. He says funny stuff, like "I could die right this minute just talking with you, I could just go like that"
    I never know whether to laugh or cry.
    Your little baby is so so adorable. I know you just can't get enough photos of him. Aren't we lucky that we can skype too?
    Your projects as always are perfect.
    Love, Rosemary
