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🤪🤪

Morning, I played golf on Thursday, and by the time we finished, it was 100! The worst part of the day was we were playing for least putts and I came in third—no dough!
I started some fall projects this week. They are downstairs waiting to be quilted. The first is a Halloween Table Topper. The second is a wallhanging called “Night Flight” by Jo Morton.
My weekend project is to quilt a king size quilt for a friend’s brother and sister in law’s anniversary. Both couples were married on July 21 (different years!)
I finished this quilt as a lap quilt and had it downstairs waiting to be quilted. The sister in law liked it, sew, it is now a king!
Before I go, my son sent this picture of a distracted driver!!
PS. Guess what day it is🏌🏻♀️⛳️🏌🏻♀️⛳️

Hi, hope that your weekend is going well! Yesterday I set up a vendor tent at a local farmer’s market to try to sell some of my quilts. I did sell two summer table runners!
I also took a scrappy pink quilt for another vendor who is fighting breast cancer. I was up a 3 am to watch the British Open! I am sure that I will need a nap some time today.
I played 18 holes of golf this last Thursday. My knee held up ok but could hardly walk on Friday—stiff and sore all over🤪🤪. I am thinking about taking some yoga to regain some flexibility!
Here is the latest pic from my granddaughter! She had been eating a blue slushy!
Am working on adding a border to another quilt. Sew, will see you soon!

I went grocery shopping early this morning; then stopped at a drive through coffee stand for an Iced Mocha. The little Barista asked what I was going to do today! Enjoy the sun? I said NO, I was going to sew! I did go outside to take my pictures, it’s 90 degrees.
Sew, I did and am now watching golf.
I worked on some small projects:
- Made a couple of microwave potholders for a friend
- Finished a scrappy table topper using my Moda Martinique scraps
- Made two table runners. The first is a popsicle runner (Fig Tree pattern)
- The second runner is made from a Buttermilk Basin pattern using some woven scraps from Moda “Etchings”
Before I go make some cookies, I have to tell you a story!
I met an old quilting friend on Friday for coffee. About 5 yrs ago, she and her husband moved to the coast to be near their grandchildren. Recently she finished a quilt and decided to have a local quilter quilt it. The local quilter asked her how she wanted it quilted?! What, she thought, I usually leave it up to Sandy to decide. They talked about it and made a decision. The day came for my friend to pick up her quilt. She was excited to see how it turned out! She said that she was very very disappointed and the local quilter charged her twice as much as I charge!! She said that she learned a valuable lesson!!
Nice for me!!
Off to make some cookies!

My son and his family came for a visit last weekend. My granddaughter is 20 months and is in constant motion getting into EVERYTHING! I had put some things away but not nearly enough! Both my son and I were blondes early in life!
I managed to finish a quilt top that I have wanted to make for awhile. The blocks are gingham, with a light grey background. It is called “Gingham Stars”! I think this is a keeper with a nice Minkee backing!
No big plans for the week. I don’t have any customer quilts to work on. Sew will work on my sister’s quilts and some of my back log!
Have a good week!

I am spending a little time down in the dungeon trying to catch up on some quilting projects! Sew far, I have finished two more of my sister’s quilts and am working on a flower table runner! The runner pattern is from Sheri Falls “Table Runner Bliss”. The hsts are leftovers from another quilt. The fabric is “Harmony”.
Will try to get a couple more runners before I poop out and head upstairs!

Here is a picture of my little granddaughter who just had her bangs cut!
I also wanted to show off some of my mini quilts!
The pattern is from Thimble Blossoms called “Piece of Cake”. And the fabric is Corey Yoder’s “Pepper and Flax”.
This one is from MSQC called “Colorado Star” using Chic Neutral!
I have been trying to get some quilting done but it is slow going with my sore knee!
Until next time...
