Season of Quilting and Leaves, Leaves, Leaves!

I am surprised at how fast time flies.  I have spent time since I last wrote, quilting, gardening, yard work, canning, and dehydrating produce.  These are all things I enjoy very much.

Merry Christmas

I am not sure where this last year has gone, but it flew by too quickly!  Seems as though the years get shorter and shorter as each one passes.  For me, it means I need to spend more time each day paying attention to the greatness in my life.

I am so blessed to have the friends and family that I do!  Not many can say how loved they feel by those around them!  I definitely feel loved!

When my daughter was married, she and her now husband picked out fabric to be made into cloth napkins for the dinner at their wedding. After the wedding, I gathered the napkins, washed them, and used them to make a wedding quilt for her and her husband.  The backing of the quilt was made of fabric squares their guests signed and decorated.  Quotes, hopes and wishes for the couple were also added to the squares. This was the “guestbook” at their wedding.  It took me far longer to make their quilt than I wanted, but I was able to finally hand deliver it to them.

Busy Fall

I have had such a busy fall. I have been working on outside projects, trying to get ready for winter. Seems like I have been blessed with good weather to get a lot accomplished.

I have a small orchard (actually had) on the side of my house. I have taken out all but one apple tree. I have removed the raspberry and blueberry bushes. I also had a raised bed that was my herb garden that I removed as well. It is so shaded now as the neighbor’s oak tree has grown more and more each year.

Keep posted as I hope to meet one or more of those goals.

Summer Filled Quilting Projects

 I have been sew busy quilting that I have not posted in a while. The saying “the hurrier I go, the behinder I get” seems to match my summer. I have been very focused on getting quilting pieces completed for my clients but sometimes it seems that I am not making progress. It is always nice to look back at some of the quilts I have completed. Enjoy the show! Read more
