Hey, I finally finished a quilt!

Yes, it is true!  It has been quilted and the binding sewn on!  I even got a picture before the sun went behind some very black clouds.  The fabric is Moda's "Coquette".

OK, It's Monday, But, I had a Great Week-end!

It's Monday but I had a great crafting weekend!  I went to my sister in law's house with a group of crafty women and learned how to felt wool and make a penny rug.  Right now, I can't find it so there is not a picture--oh, darn!  During the afternoon, I went to an Alpaca Farm and learned to crochet a rug with Alpaca wool!  It isn't perfect but I love the colors and I had a great time!

Again this fall, my sister and I will be attending Quilt Taffy's retreat in McCall, Idaho.  This year's theme is "Super Girl Edition".  I found  some fabric with an appropriate theme and made a round basket, a rectangle basket and a coin purse!

I played golf Sunday morning and then spent some time in the dungeon and just have to sew the binding on it!  I will show you a picture when I am finished.  Until then, "Happy Trails to You"!

Wednesday Progress!

I have been working on my string quilt and have completed 8 blocks.  I think that I have enough "strings" to make several dozens!

There's a quilt show in town this weekend.  Maybe I will see you there!

Finally, A Fresh Start?!

I had a very busy and profitable weekend at the local Vintage/Antique Show Friday and Saturday.  I was able to sell some of my quilts and baskets.  But, at times it is very boring, if not for friends that were also there.

Yesterday started out windy and cold but my golfing buddy and I toughed it out and played all 18 holes.  I stopped and bought groceries on the way home, and then ordered Chinese food for dinner!

What I wanted to tell you is that I finally started my string quilt.  I cut my foundation fabric and completed one block.  Truthfully, that is all the energy that I had.

Oh, and by the way, I bought a Singer Featherweight at the show!  The seller was local, so I will bring it home on Thursday!  Yippee!

Oh, Oh, Another Obsession?!

It is 7 pm and still light out.  How will I get to sleep?  Ha!  I saw a cute little zipper coin purse/bag at "Sweetwater's" etsy shop.  Sew, after supper, I made two (just for a start, I need more zippers!)

You can tell the size better beside a basket!

Oh yeah, and two chicken baskets!
Well, I am having fun and that's the name of the game!

You Can Call Me Mz Tinker Bell!

You Can Call Me Mz Tinker Bell!  Why?  Because I have not been seriously working on any quilts but am "TINKERING" around!!

More baskets:

And I tried to make a couple of fabric backed plates!

I also "caught" the nasty cold going around!  But I will be playing golf this morning.  I think that I need the fresh air!

Week End Progress

How has your week end been going?  It was snowing and raining this morning, sew no golf.  I did make some blueberry, white chocolate scones, and some cranberry, white chocolate ones.  I bought blueberries at the farmer's market yesterday with the full intent of making scones!

I am sort of working on my Happy Quilting quilt along, but as usual, I keep getting distracted with other things.

A fellow vendor at the farmer's market asked me to make a big basket with sheep on it for a baby shower center piece.

 Here are a couple more baskets:

I just finished adding ruffles to a dish towel--AWESOME!  The pattern is from "Sweetwater"

 I have my sun burned Zebra quilt loaded on the quilter and will work on it after work this week.  Have a good week!
