I've Been Busy...

Hi Everyone,

It has been a little while and I have been busy. Mostly busy working on customer quilts, which you can see the newest ones loaded on my website under recent additions. But, I have also been doing things for myself. I first found myself in a rut and wanting to sew but not doing anything about it.


So I decided that I really wanted to watch my Red Sox play, which is a nightly occurrence anyway. But, I thought that I would do some stitcheries. I have been working on my seed packet stitcheries and really enjoying the outcome. The picture is not the best but, I think it will give
you a good idea. This is the latest one completed.



I have also been working on Lynette's Anderson's free Noah's Ark BOM. I haven't taken a picture of it yet as I am still working on the cows. So I am a little behind, since this month's block is already out and they are the cutest kangaroos. EDIT: Lynette is doing a giveaway on her blog for a new pattern. Check it out and enter!! Hurry she is drawing on Monday!


In my last post I showed you my colorful wedges but I didn't show you what came before them. I had some strips left over from a project a few years ago and created this circle with my wedge ruler as my "prototype". It is all Kaffe fabrics and I love it! But I only have one. I will just have to find fabrics to make another to match!

Oh, I almost forgot...I completed the body of my M.E. quilt. Now I just have to put the borders on. That always seems to take the longest for me to do. By the way, this quilt took one jelly roll and the pattern is by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company and is called Storyteller.


I have a couple of other projects in the works and I will post about them over the weekend. You'll want to check back because, you will see some naughty cat antics and a giveaway!!!!

Until then...Happy Quilting!!

I just love the ME quilt. How cheerful. I have never done that block myself...you make it look easy. ;) Lots of folks seem to be in a bit of a rut. I think it has to do with the nice weather versus staying with the machine. For being in a rut, you have lots done! :)

The daisy stitchery is lovely. Love the Storyteller quilt. I've admired the pattern on the Fat Quarter Shop site. Can't wait to see what your cats been up to.

my goodness I'm not sure where to start. You have been so busy getting some awesome quilts started. I have A LOT of WIPS but nothing ready to post. Well I did finish one stitchery towel. I wet it to remove the blue mark-b-gone and threw it in the dryer with semi damp clothes...it can out with a pink spot...as did my daughters top. I have no idea where the pink came from. Oh well, it will be a kitchen towel afterall. You'll see it on my blog soon enough. Anyhow, your retreat looked amazing. Great pictures!Thanks for the inspiration.

You have been busy! Love the seed-packet stitching. I have been having a great time hand embroidering. It's fun to see what you are up to.

Beautiful stuff! Where did the pattern for the daisy seed packet come from? I'd love the pattern, is it your own design?
