Newest work

This first block is one I did for a lady in a sane quilting RR. Decided a simple 1/2 sq triangle border would be good and add some interest with all the triangles pointing in the same direction.
Here is another Choose Your own Theme block I made. The lady said to try new things on her Garden theme block so i sure did. the little red border at the bottom is a two post lazy daisy with straight stitches. Above that is a design i got out of the book Elegant Stitches. And above that is another from the same book with lazy daisy stitch and cretan stitch which I am still getting used to. In the SRE cluster I tried a new little rose in the light blue. It is just stitching the ribbon in an accordian and stitching straight through. Very cute tiny roses. Nearly all the seam treatments were new ones I tried. Got a little carried away on this one but it was fun to make.

I have actually mostly worked on the 4 Egyptian themed blocks and am almost through with them. but not quite, so will post pics when i do finish them.

The 'sue' is very cute. Love the cup. You've done some really nice needle work on your swap blocks, too.

The SBS is the cutest little block. I love the dog and cup thing. You've done a great job on the swap block, and she can't help but love it.

This is adorable! Don't you just love it when they say, just go for it? I feel it brings out the creativity that is hiding in there!

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
