Another UFO finish!!

Good Morning!

I have been busy this past week. And I have another UFO complete!! This one is about 8 years or so old. I did a mystery quilt at a LQS and I lost some of my blocks, so I completed the mystery and called it Still A Mystery to Me! And I had all this fabric left over and lots of 4 patches, so I created this little quilt - it measures about 30 x 44 - but I did not have any more fabric for the border, so I was in Hobby Lobby a few weeks back and there it was!! AWESOME! so I bought some and I thought I had purchase enough for the border and the binding WRONG, I was one 2 1/4 inch strip short!! So on the way to dinner Saturday night we stopped and another Hobby Lobby and I got another 1/4 yard and last night during Big Brother I finished up the binding! This would be a cute little blanket for a baby boy.

I was also very lucky this month, the Le Petite Project I belong to was very generous to everyone who made the project last month. Carrie from Miss Rosie and Company sent everyone 2 Layer cakes and a pattern, my pattern was a pincushion kit from Primitive Gatherings and I have already started on it- so I will show that when it is complete. I was thrilled about this -- so today is my day off this week and I need to work on the project that needs to be on our blogs by Sept 1st!!

Here are my 2 layer cakes: Cool huh?

Still plugging away things for my craft shows coming up, this is a simple pattern call Orgami - I just love the sunflowers!

Well I hope you are having a great day!

Friday Night Sew in

Good Morning!

I participated in the Friday Night Sew in this month, I did cheat a little, I was off on Thursday so I quilted this top from a few years ago and just bound it last night, but it is DONE!!!

I measures about 36 x 36 so it is a great table topper or wall hanging. Can't wait to decide where to put it.

I am of Sunday - Tuesday this weekend, and I have 5 table toppers waiting to be bound, so be prepared, for a little finish show in a couple of days!

Take care I am off to work!

No longer a mystery

Good Morning!

Yesterday my friend and I took a ride to the LQS where we did the mystery quilt last year and I got my border! I really love the way it turned out. Can't wait to get it quilted, it will look great on my brown couch in the living room.

Off to work today!

Did you watch the Bachelorette last night?

Good Morning!

Well did you watch the Bachelorette last night? I did - I was hoping it was JP and is was!! I felt so bad for Ben, proposing and all - first time you ever really saw someone get angry and I am sure that was a real feeling for him. Well I wish them the best, was not a huge fan of Ashley but she did grow on me while watching. Her sister was really something, can't believe she did not like JP and now she does.

Sunday we went to one of the county fairs in our area, I really could live on a farm and be quite happy, we live in the country just not enough land for all the animals I want.

Here are some piggys in the pig races, so cute - you just want to squeeze those little cheeks!!

Here are 2 cute bunnies, they sure look hot it was 90+ degrees on Sunday but they sure were cute!

I have been sewing, I had made these blocks over 10 years ago for a BOM and they have just sat in my UFO pile and I am determines to get some of these UFO's moved out -- So I made them into candle mats.

My Godson is away at boot camp and I bought a patriotic picture frame for his mom, my BFF since we were kids, so I mailing one of these off to her. I have some craft shows coming up soon so I have been sewing and getting lots done, I will share more tomorrow.

I am off today and it is going to be 95 today, so I will be sewing in the creation station today!

Happy Stitches!
