I am sitting at my sewing machine, working on a queen quilt for a friend.  I saw this block, Dutchman's Puzzle on PINTEREST and am using soft pastels!

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!

"To Market, To Market..."

Good Saturday morning!

I am getting ready to head to the Prosser's Farmers Market and wanted to share a quilt that I made for a raffle at the market.  The proceeds will go to a woman fighting breast cancer.  She sells chicken and duck eggs!

Off I go!

Monday Morning!

Good Monday morning!  I hope that your weekend was as good as mine!

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!

Kitchen Witch!

Good Monday morning!

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"

Golf tomorrow!  Will work on my Bunnie Quilt as time allows!  I am half finished with the blocks!

Bye until next time!

Yikes, but it has been awhile!

I went to the west side of the state this weekend to celebrate my son's 50th birthday and spend time with the family!

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!

Friday, Friday

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!
