I mistakenly tagged the wrong podcast episode in the last post. If you downloaded it and found it was from November, then you found my mistake before I did. It’s now corrected and here’s a picture of the pattern I talked about.

I wish you a very Merry Christmas!

I’ve been hard at work making Christmas cards this week. These are made using string art methods. The patterns were found in various places on the internet for free, most from Pinterest links. I plan to make a video today to show how they are made.

The pictures below show a few of the first. I made 50 in total and it got easier as I went along.

 

This is the blooming nine patch before I loaded it onto the longarm frame.

This is just one of 274 blocks I made for a double 4 patch quilt.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I had a very busy July! After time with the grandkids, I went to Kelly’s guild sew in day and meeting.

Stay tuned for a new ornament runner. I won second place for the Christmas in July event!

Check out Kelly’s awesome work.

Check out Love Notions Patterns, the wonderful Laundry Day Tee is free when you join the Facebook group.

I used this pattern for my me made undies.

I made a new blouse for my family reunion. I used stretch chiffon found at Joanns and McCall’s pattern M6605.

I need to adjust the armholes and add the ties to the back but otherwise I love it.

*note: we have lovely rest stops in Ohio, but they lack in proper photography lighting 😀

Hubs took a moment away from picture snapping to pose with me.

My brother, sister, mom and I.

My kids……

and the grandkids.

This lovely young lady is the proud new owner of my most recent Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt.

I didn’t talk a lot about the reunion but we had an awesome day with my loved ones.

I’ve adopted a Paleo diet to cure what ails me. So far, it’s working!
