Anyway here is what has been going on...
I want to say a big THANK YOU to Gina and Amelia. Gina sent a huge box of Tea for my Mom! Mom has been on this big tea drinking kick lately. She also sent me a wonderful quilt magazine! And Amelia...Thanks so much for the card! So nice to know that I have been missed, you are such a sweetie!!! I had photos of both, but for some reason my camera choked on them so I don't have photos to show of them.
Here is my Booty Swap Mini quilt that I made for Mel. I just got it mailed out this morning. I hope she likes it! It doesn't look square in the photo but it is straight. I even sewed on some beading. They are hard to see but the little dots in the cream are seed beads. It was very fun to make.
And here is the lovely quilt that I recieved in the swap from Jill Tacy! It is truly beautiful!!! Love the colors and she did a wonderful job! The tag that pulls out of the heart is "A Mother's Heart" poem. I love it and it really matches well in my house!
She also made me this set of 6 napkins! They are very nice and also threw in some recipes!! Such nice and talented lady! Thanks a bunch, Jill, I love them!
Here are some Civil War Diary blocks that I have made since I posted last! I now have a total of 41! So now only 80 more to go!!!!!
This is 4 of the Dear Jane blocks that I made, I think these make me a total of 6! Still a long way to go on these!
Also in the mail was a surpise package from Jill, (the other Jill) :) Beautiful Moda charms and a bag of chocolates that I have to say are almost gone already!!! Thanks a bunch! I have a perfect pattern to use the charms in! Very sweet of you!
Here is my pile of Orange Crush blocks! I am completely caught up on this! I had my sister to get on here and check for step 5 and she printed it out for me and brought it out to me. I'm anxious to see how this will look in the end.
This is the fabrics that we are using in Quilt Guild for our Mystery quilt! I have some of it cut out, just waiting for the next step! Can't wait to see it, it will be small, more like a lap size.
And this is my Scrappy Trips Around The World, from the Quiltville website! I have more of it done since this photo was taken. I like it, it is very quick and easy to put together, just 2 1/2 inch strips!!!! There are several more on here website that I would love to make...
Speaking of strips!!!! I now have ALL of my scraps cut up into usable sizes! Can you believe that???? See I told you I have been busy! I have them cut into different sized strips and squares! Everything is so neat and organized, now if I can just keep it up.
I guess that is all for now... I need to go back home and get Hunter in the bed! He has his first kindergarten field trip tomorrow. I will be following the bus to go with him. They are going to a Science Center, then stopping by Paintsville Lake for a nature walk and a picnic lunch! I'm sure he will have a blast but I will be sooooo tired.
Please, don't forget about me, hopefully, I will be up and running again within the next few weeks!!!!!
