Last of the Christmas Gifts.

Here are the sachets.  I am not putting anything in them as I an allergic to most potpourri.  There is a 2.5 inch zipper in the back of each as you can see from the one at the top.  I used 2 different monograms.  1 came from Kathy Shaw(of http://www.shawkl.com ) and the other from Mary Corbet (of http://www.needlenthread.com ).



Now I can relax and work on other things.

CQJP (Crazy Quilting Journal Project)

Submitted my Jan block this morning then spent a bit of time working on my Feb block.  January is going to be a busy month so am trying to get ahead while I can.

Here is my work so far.


Next step will be the seam treatments.  Will show you a picture once I get those done as well.

Other than that I have been working on 7 sachets for family & friends.  Hope to have them finished today.  If so will make another post later or tomorrow.

Early finish - January CQJP 2015 block

I think it is finished will wait to submit it for a few more days.  I have it set up so that I see it constantly so can make any changes I think is needed.  It also needs to pass John's inspection tonight after he gets home from work :)

Here it is.

Those stars in the top right corner are not pink they are off white.  The flash altered the color.

Update on my mother

She is out of the hospital as of last night and feels great.  The did put 2 stents in while doing the agiogram.  As for her hip no one knows what happened there but the pain went away.  So all of the stress and worry is done now.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing you all a good day.  For those in the US Happy Thanksgiving.

Woke up yesterday with such lovely plans.  Was going to take some pictures of my WIP and post with links to a few other blogs.  Then everything went awry big time.

Got am email from my brother saying that my mother was rushed to the hospital as she woke up and couldn't move.  What a shocker that was.  Having to wait for news was the worst though.  I think he was in a hurry and didn't pay attention to what he actually said in his email.  Later email said they don't know what the pain in her hip is all about.  So it wasn't as serious as his first email made it out to be.

She will be in the hospital for a few days while they do tests etc.  So please send her kind thoughts and prayers.

My CQJP 2015 blocks

Been trying to decide what I wanted to do for these.  Keep in mind that I am new to cq'ing.  Decided to do neutral back ground blocks and just use them for practicing.  So not going with any set plan in mind.  There will be plenty of embroidery, SRE, and I hope some stumpwork.

Other than that haven't really been doing much.  Next week I want to get all the prep done for my Bali quilt class.  Have a lot of reading and cutting to do :(

W.I.P. 11-04-2014

This is a BoM from a local quilt shop.  Progress to date.  All of the fabrics except for the dark blue are included.


Recently joined the yahoo group Celt's Vintage Crochet I don't crochet as much as I used to but still like to keep my hand in so to speak.  This vintage pattern is from that goup.  Still needs to be blocked.




2 of my CQ blocks from Kathy Shaw's intermediate class are finally done.   1 more should be done today the other will wait for a wooden frame on payday.




This picture is just for fun.  This is what happens if I get up before John in the morning.  Really not sure if Rusty is attracted to the warmth or if he is trying to keep the bed warm for me.  He is sound asleep here.  He didn't even stir when the camera turned on which will usually have him come running and pose.




Will be linking up with a few places.  Check them out and see what other people are up to.
