Long overdue post

 Time seems to elude me since March…. I spend a bit of time not sewing but I am back now.

Here are some kid quilts that are ready for donation:

These next quilts are the completed Quilty Hugs that are almost ready for giving.

All they need to to stitch down the label and a good wash. 

I have a pile of donated tops which makes me so happy.  People just want to sew and give these tops a good home!

Like so many quilters I have returned to cross stitch.  Here is a couple that I got back from framing. I love how they turned out!  Blogger decided to rotate my pictures ugh.

Life Update…my bladder cancer has returned to haunt me.  Waiting on a surgery date. It will be a simple out patient surgery with little to no down time.

Happy stitching everyone!

Long Time Gone

 I did not mean to be away so long.  Life has a way of doing that…

February took me on a trip to Panama which was fabulous. One of the highlights was seeing the Panama Canal in operation. We stayed in a eco lodge where everything was taken care of. So cool. 

Three weeks later and I was traveling to St John in the Virgin Islands. It was a action packed trip. Every day we hiked and snorkeled in the most beautiful aqua waters. We saw many beautiful sea creatures. I felt my age on this trip and didn’t like that. 

I think I have recovered for the most part and now need to get my studio in order. I started today by putting stuff where it belongs. I have things to do and a few quilting jobs to accomplish. 

Here are the quilts that have been completed in the last quarter. The Quilty hugs quilts will be delivered tomorrow as I will be in the area getting my car serviced. 

This is a baby quilt for a co worker who I loved.  She got married and had a little girl.  I designed this little quilt and love it.

This next one was donated by C. Thanks. 

The next three
were pieced and donated by Lisa T. Thanks Lisa. 

This next one is for me and my queen size bed. It was a leader ender challenge from Bonnie Hunter a few years back. I made so many blocks that I will have to make another quilt to use them up. 

Sorry I have been away so long. The cross stitch bug has bitten me and one of my posts will highlight some finishes. 

Hope everyone is well!  🐸

Love Quilts Abound

 I have been chipping away at the pile of love tops waiting on me.  One by one I am slowly getting them done. My friend S came and picked up ten to bind. Yay!!!

That’s all for now.  I’m headed downstairs to load a quilt.  🐸

Something for Me

 I finished this top at retreat last September 2021. It’s massive!

It was a leader ender project from Bonnie Hunter that really clicked.  I have a sizable bag of blocks left over which may become a lap quilt.  I’ll post better pictures later.  🐸

Time has slipped away

 From me. I truly did not mean to go this long without a post. 

The quilt drive for the Haywood flood victims was a great success with over 124 quilts completed. I did get a little burned out but have been back in the studio finishing chemo quilts.

This was a top donated from Nancy F.  It was supposed to have appliquéd flowers but I just did fancy quilting.  I really played with pro-stitcher and had fun!

Nancy also donated this stripy top which I added a small border to make it a little larger.  I like these quilts to be snuggled when getting treatment. 

The next two are from Lisa T.

I have been stitching the many inches of binding on these quilts.

A nice picture of the kitties sleeping the afternoon away.

And a cross stitch piece I finished myself. It is hanging on the fridge by way of a magnet.  I am stitching my evenings doing cross stitch as it is very peaceful. 

Back soon with more updates. 🐸
