I'm a rotten blogger, I'll have to make it my New Year's resolution to do better. :)

Wall hanging I'm now working on!

Update:still not done! :(  
Looks like this will go into my UFO pile for now, 
too many other things need to get done!

Mini quilt for Quilting Gallery's Good Ol' Summertime quilt swap.

My partner was Bradie Sparrow, in Canada. 
She loved it!
Been busy trying to find a job, 
so in the meantime working on UFOs, I have sooo many!

Friendship Bag Swap

I put pockets in them.

My cat bag.
Mine and Cindy's bags

Been working on making bags, lots of fun. SIL Cindy came over Sat. We went to the Cruso Quilt Show, quilts were great, one vendor, J Creek Fabrics is owned by my friend Janie. Haven't seen her in awhile, so that was wonderful. Then back to my house to work on bags. Going to make more, they turned out very cute! Still have to get it in gear and start my good Ol' Summertime Mini quilt for that swap.
Made banana muffins and cooking pork chops in the slow cooker...yum.

Here's a photo of the mini I made from the leftovers from my Spring Blooms quilt.
I think it turned out pretty nice. :) I sent it to my daughter, Christine in IL.

So much fun visiting different quilt shops.
Here's a picture of all the goodies I got.
We visited nine shops out of the 14. Next Thurs.-Sat. we stay down in Greenville, SC(3 days & 2 nights) to do the shops in SC. Shop during the day and sew in the evening in our hotel room! :)

Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap

My mini I received was from Deb.
All done by hand! Gorgeous!
A scrappy Thimbles pattern.

What fun this was! 
I had a great time making my mini for my partner, 
Jan Cooper from AL. 
Pattern was called Peppermint Twist by Darlene Zimmerman.

I'm very new at this, my first blog. Trying to figure everything out.
I love batiks, Aunt Jane's, Civil war and anything in brights!
On to my new life as an empty-nester, first time living alone. So far, I love it!
