Well this has been a long week. I had minor surgery last Friday and a 20 minute thing took 2 hours. So still recovering from that. But I can sew now that my back and hip don't hurt as much. The top photo is some of my fabrics for the new mystery Curiosity Kills by Love Shacks Quilts on FB. you can go here to join in the fun.
Here are some of the BDay blocks made into pillows just have to get pillows for them.
Bday pillow 2
I also did most of the sashing on the blocks now just got to sew the rows together then add a border
Row with some sashing
Went shopping this week and got some new yarn a couple of magazines and batting.
Then I got the best thing this week a new washier, it is so quiet and runs like a dream. No more keeping on eye on it to make sure it doesn't overflow like the old one. So a happy camper this week.
This is the Merry Mayham mystery quilt just have to sew the rows together. I really like the way it came out just using scraps from my stash.
Got all the sashing cut out for my Bday quilt going with this nice yellow fabric.
This is the last batch of blocks I made into 4-P for the quilt. I did the embroidery of the butterfly and hummingbird. Now to sew all the sashing on them sew rows together.
Been working on the Stitch-Cation blocks got 14 more blocks to make before September. The top block is the Front post Treble Stitch. The lower block is a Back Loops Stitch
This is the second back loops stitch
I found the afghan above at a yard sale, it is in perfect condition and I just love the colors. Working on this blue thing this week it is a present for someone.
Got to have a colonscopy Friday so doing the prep this week since I'm allergic to the drink stuff so kind of slow and very hungry lol. Been raining here alot so been inside.
Hope you have a Blessed Week!
Well it turned out that it was Mike from Monster's Inc in the closet and since I didn't make him green we added some stuff and turned him into Mike's Uncle Ornament. You know the one who is crazy and that you love/hate to see at holidays lol.
Then last night had to go to Wal-mart for dog food and stuff and they had green yarn so I got the last 2 and I'm going to make another one in the right color.
I also got the Merry Mayham mystery fabric cut out for the mystery Saturday. if you would like to join in go here
So that is all for now it has been raining alot here.
Have a Blessed week!
Been a long month dealing with Doctor's and chiropractors for my back/hip, but along the way I did manage to get a little sewing done on my BDay blocks, made them into 4-patches and picked out the yellow fabric for sashing and the print for a border fabric.
Here are a couple of more 4-patches from the blocks.
These I still have to sew... Not sure how many blocks are still coming in the mail I may have to make a couple of blocks to make it even. :-)
I have also been working on the July Crochet Crowd mystery here are the first 2 parts done. I think this is going to be bigger than the giraffe we made in the last one.
And I also doing the Stitch-Cation from The Crochet Crowd here is the beginning of my first popcorn block, I'm almost done with it now.
My Friend Bekah make me this knitted panda and I made her the blue and Silver winged Angel.
I can tell I've been going to doctor appointments to much when I finish a project in less than 3 weeks and start the matching doll blanket.
Went to dinner and stash shopping today and got the yarn for a Halloween found some buttons for sale and some free crochet patterns.
I also picked this fabric out for a quilt mystery next weekend from Merry Mayham.
Hope everyone has a Blessed week that is all for now.
Good Afternoon! I'm 50--- wow don't feel any
different, so I guess it really is just a number. I remember when I was
little thinking 35 was really really old, so 50 had to be like as old as
dinosaurs lol. Some days I feel pre-historic from my RA but mentally don't feel any different then I did when I was 20. Maybe a little wiser but not much
Thank you all for the wonderful Birthday wishes. I also got Bday wished
from my kids today which makes me feel wonderful inside. I am having a
quiet day with just Hubby, will maybe embroider on the angel some or
just WOW out all day. Hubby is making me rice for dinner and not sure
what else yet.
My Flower bloomed today been waiting for about 6 years for it and it does on my BDay.
This quilt is getting so big, I may have to rethink how I was going to make it. So will be thinking and designing some more. Thank all of you for helping me make this Bday really special.
I get to redo part of what I did yesterday.
I tried to fix it and cut off too much so now I have to take it apart
and re-cut a new bottom border piece then remake the side panel part. (Above picture)
I started a new Angel for a friend it is a swap she is making me a knitted panda-bear that I can't wait to get. I love the blue/white with silver accents on it.
phones calls today from my chiropractor's office and an Orthopedic
specialist for appointments this Friday and Monday for my back & hip
can't wait to get it feeling better so I can play with my sewing
machine more, since it is my right hip which is my petal foot. Well
enough of this book I'm writing today. Have a Blessed week! Huggs, Cleary
