Lot's Of Sewing

Thanks for all the nice comments about Andrew's big buck! He was still excited this morning. He was jabbering away before he left for school! I'm sure he will tell all of this buddies today.

Yesterday I finished up the customer quilt. Kris said that is was fine to post about it on my blog. This quilt was made by her great grandmother so it was an honor to quilt it for her. Now I just have to clip the threads and get it on it's way home. I sure hope you are pleased with it, Kris.
This is a shot that I took from underneath the frame! I used the "Chantilly Lace" design on it.
Here is the view from my sewing room window that I took yesterday. It was such a beautiful day.
This morning after cutting up the deer tenderloin and grinding up a bunch of it for burger and sausage....I quickly sewed this together for my 7 yr old niece. She loves Peace Signs so I thought this fabric would be perfect for her.
It is very bright! :) I had the purple fabric in my stash and had plenty of it so I did the borders, cut the backing and the binding. Here it is all ready to be put on the frame. I promise the purple thread matches, it looks so dark in the photo.
After that I sewed together this cute little wallhanging!
It was actually a block in the magazine that I bought the other day
I thought the block was so cute so I added another border to it to make a small wallhanging. It measures 18 1/2" Now I just need to applique around the frog, quilt it, bind it and it will be done!
Now I am tired!!! :) Off to finish supper!!!

Your quilting looks so nice. I like that design. You are doing such good job. Cute Frog wallhanging also. I know what you mean about the thread. I am fooled a lot of times with the thread colors. Just have to lay them directly on the quilt to determine the corrrect spool to use. I'm off to cook supper also, having rabbit this evening.

Love your black and white quilt and the frog wall hanging.
Did you follow along on the blog hop for the magazine? I caught it late but it was interesting.
