The "Dutchman's Puzzle" has also been finished and shipped off to my customer. She should have received it last Wednesday, but I haven't heard from her to see if she is happy.
"Endless Possibilities" has also been shipped off to my good friend, who is giving it for a birthday gift. I have made this quilt twice, but still don't have one for me! My sister has one is blues.

I joined a QAL on Instagram last week sponsored by "Then Came Jane", using her pattern "Meadowland Quilt". I bought some Art Gallery fat quarters and got started. The first week was just to pick your fabric and get it cut. Well, being a little obsessive, I got a good start in piecing the blocks and finished 8 of 20. I posted on Instagram and WHAMP, I was slammed by the Quilt Police who decided that 1. I used the wrong 2.5" squares, and 2. I made my flying geese wrong!! Oh, by the way, they loved my mistake!!
I posted a nice commentary on Quilt Police on my site!!
I have been digging around my sewing room trying to finish some of my UFO's. I got one quilted and the binding on. The pattern is one of Carrie Nelson's and the fabric is Moda's Victoria!
I also made two quilts for a friend's two granddaughters. Oh, they are soooo cute. One is made from "Frozen" and one is made from pink doggie fabric. Did I say that they are soooo cute!
I am making stew and fresh biscuits for dinner, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY COUSIN VONDA!!

I listen to Audible books while sewing and quilting. I have already completed the 2020 Challenge and will receive my reward in March! I wish that they would give me six months of free books!!
Time to clean up my mess in the sewing room and take a few hours to relax before dinner!

I finished this Moon Quilt last weekend at the farmers market. It was designed by Cakestand Quilts,
but I only used this one block!
My big thrill of this summer starts Monday. I am going to the coast to babysit my granddaughter for the week. She will be three in October. We have not spent much time together, so it should be interesting!!
I haven't decided if I am taking my sewing machine and projects with me. On one hand, I probably won't have time and on the other hand, I hate to be without it. I normally sew every day! I am having withdrawal pangs just thinking about leaving my machine home! PHEW, decision made, it is going!!
Off to get another cup of coffee!

Had my first craft show of the year on Saturday. The day was beautiful and met a lot of new customers! It was the third annual "Spring Fling" sponsored by "My Garden Over Floweth", located in Patterson, Washington.
Yesterday, I got my garden planted, just tomatoes and cucumbers! I set up a booth every Saturday at the Prosser Farmers Market, so I don't need to plant much!
I also finished quilting my "Country Bunnies" yesterday and will sew the binding on this morning. The pattern is by "The Pattern Basket"!
Have a great week!

I think that a Kitchen Witch took over my body this morning! She made me dust, clean my quilting room, throw out a bag of junk and make some Carrot Cake Scones!
We had a fun Easter with a family get together, My DH's sister, niece, and grand-nieces flew out from New York for the week. We met at my brother in laws and had a great visit and, a great meal!
I have been obsessing over little zippered bags from one that I saw on Pinterest. Don't you just love Pinterest?! I am on it several times a day.
I also have worked on a quilt that I downloaded from All People Quilt. It is called "A Scrappy Romance"
Bye until next time!

We met some of Todd's friends at a local Mexican Restaurant. Also present, were my sister and her husband, my daughter in law, my granddaughter and two friends from grade school with their families!
Some of you may remember that my sister is a quilter and I met another guest, who is also a quilter (Hi Anita!) Todd introduced Anita to my blog and bragged to her about my quilts, The three of us got to talk about quilting and quilt shops that we had visited all over the state! Fun, Fun! Anita also reminded me that I hadn't posted in awhile. I didn't realize how long it had been until I logged on this afternoon,
I am not going to try to catch you up today with all of the quilts that I made over the past couple of months, it would take toooooo long! But, I will show you this cutie!

Good afternoon, I am in the process of making some chili and macaroni soup. I played 13 holes in the rain this morning and soup sounded sooo gooood!
Before starting my soup, I made some apple scones to take to a recuperating friend.My granddaughter was here over Christmas, what fun! She is two and a quarter years old; she is talking and even called me “Grammie”. She called my DH papa Wayne!
My daughter in law said that she had made Carly a book bag, but hadn’t seen any straps on! Grammie to the rescue!
I have/had a nice stash of Kari Pearson fabric, so I dug it out and have made three bags so far! I truly wish that Kari would design kids fabric AGAIN!!
I just have to stitch the binding on a lap quilt that I got from MSQC called “Ribbon Star”. I used French General’s “Le Marais”!
Happy New Year to all my friends!

It is Saturday morning and I just finished a small quilt for a new friend! When I first met her, I thought that she was a Snowflake! Sew, I made her a secret present!
She is sew funny and has a very kind soul.
I got word this week from my son. He is coming over for Christmas and I get to see my granddaughter! I got her Cabbage Patch Doll and some books. She is talking now!
I have been working at the mall for the Christmas season. Two more weeks and I will be finished. But, I will have earned enough to pay my greens fees for 2019.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year🎄🎄🎄🎉🎉🎉

It has been quiet around here today except for the zoom zoom of my sewing machine!!
I started a new quilt yesterday from Miss Rosie’s new book “Farmhouse Favorites”. It has taken me a day and a half to get step one finished (make 30 nine patch blocks)!
Now, I have to make them into 30 Monkey Wrench Blocks!
I did get a little side tracked this morning by making another Lori Holt mini quilt. I love her “Farm Girl Vintage” book!
Last week I made a Halloween barn mini quilt!
Back to my cutting mat! Catch you later🤪🤪
