Just Looking Back...

Still snowed in! :( Cabin fever is really settling in on me. I do love being home but this is getting crazy! Haven't really accomplished anything at all today! Have you ever had one of those days? I have been busy all day but nothing is done, except for the dishes.

Still can't find my camera cord to upload new photos, but I have posted a couple of photos of some older quilts that I have made. I found them digging around in my photos on the computer.
As you know I LOVE scrap quilts! This one is called "Pieced Tulips" I made this one several years ago, way before I started my blog. I do love this pattern and have often thought of making another one. It was quilted by my friend, Sandy.
This is one of my favorites! It is called "Road To Dixie" It was also made several years ago! And it is still NOT quilted! :( It is on my long list of tops to quilt. I just love the border fabric on it. It is navy paisley and the paisley fabrics are my favorite! This is one that I would love to quilt soon.

Anyway, I made a big pot of chili for supper! So everyone has a full belly and we are settling in for a good movie! The boys still do not have school tomorrow and Richard does not have school on Fridays.

Hi Kristie!! I am not sure how I stumbled upon your blog but I am soooo glad that I did!! I am a quilter and I have been drooling over the Bailey quilter for a while. I plan to purchase one someday...hopefully soon. I just bought a used Baby Lock Quilters Choice and I have the Handi Quilter frames. I have not put this machine in the frames yet but i know I am going to need a longer arm...it's only 9".

Are you really happy with your machine? I sure hope so! I really want to buy American made if possible. Does your machine have the stitch regulator?

I love all your quilts!! We have so much in common. My husband and grandkids are coonhunters, rabbit and squirrel hunters too!! They are in a breed all their own aren't they?? LOL!!! That's why us women quilt right????

Blessings,
Becky

They maybe old quilts - but still show your talent.

Enjoy the family - ten years from now they won't remember if the house was spotless only that they felt loved and happy.

I never get tired of looking at your quilts!! I could look at them all day long!!

We are out of school today. We are waiting on snow. Down here in Georgia, even if we just get a dusting it is a BIG deal!!

Enjoy your day!
