I’m back…

Hello there, I’ve been gone for a long time
and have been missing ya’ll so much!
2014 was an incredible, but crazy, busy year for me…
So many awesome things happened
and I want to share some of the fun things
I worked on over the next few days…
It all started with Celebrate the Seasons with C&T
 The book includes patterns for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter,
all with full size layouts & reversed templates!
I had a great time working on each of these projects,
and if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be
Thankful… or maybe Merry & Bright?…
Humm, I don’t know…
the little chicks in Happy Easter turned out so sweet, plus …
well, then there’s the map, love maps and travel! … lol…
Okay, how can a mom have a favorite child, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs,

 

 

 

New Hop and a Winner!


Hello! It has been a while…


and after a very fun, successful trip to Houston,
I am so ready to get back to “normal”….
I heard someone say that “normal”
is just a setting in your dryer, he he! I agree!
… but I’ll still give it a try, LOL!

I want to thank everyone for visiting during the
Glorious Autumn Block Party hosted by Michele.
I really enjoyed reading all about what you love most about quilting!
For me, it’s the color, the fabric,
and the wonderful friends I’ve met thanks to quilting!
So…. the winner of my Autumn Bliss Pattern and charm pack is:
Rebecca Grace! She said… 

“You come up with the sweetest designs,

and this tree is no exception. Adorable! 

What do I like most about quilting?
I love that, unlike the hours I spend making meals that just get eaten,
washing laundry that just gets dirty again, etc.,
quilting gives me something lasting to show for my work.
And I like playing with fabric. :-)”

Love, love…°Ü°

Gwen… she said:

One of the best things about Fall is the cool, crisp nights!
We love to sit out on the swing on our back porch,

snuggle up in a cozy quilt and just enjoy the refreshing air… 🙂

and Helen…
My favorite part of fall is–I have a list

–warm days and cool nights, beautiful color of the leafs,

the calmness all around and

hearing the sound of a football game

while diner is in the crock pot and I can sew!

Indeed, Fall is the best time of year!
Now, the 3rd winner is “me”

Yeah, Mdm. Samm made this wonderful cozy for moi!

You should see all the beautiful hand work,

the goose-down-filled liner,

the beautiful “orange” tulip cup

and then, there’s the tiny cup candle

way cute, don’t you think?

And yes, it’s all in orange!!! How perfect is that?!!!

Just lovely…

…thanks so much Samm °Ü°
I will enjoy it for a long time!

One of my favorite things about Fall

is the memories I have with my children…

fun costumes, going to the pumpkin farm
and apple orchards, hot cider…

long walks surrounded by the beautiful colors of fall…

I could go on and on!

Here are my little guys back in ’91

don’t they look adorable?

Hope you are having a wonderful fall season!

Day Five…

…in the Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop!
and today I get to show you some
of my fall blocks °Ü°
I’ll start with these two little blocks…
I was in one of my LQSs the other day
and just kept looking at this
fun, bright fabric,
so finally, I had to bring it home
with me and make these Funky Fall Blocks
I then put them together and made this runner
That day, I also found the fabric I used
to make these fun little owls
using my Drunkard’s Path GO! dies
I had so much fun with this Wise Little Guys block,
especially when it came time for their little eyes!
When I started thinking about what to
make for this hop,
I kept thinking about my favorite things
around this time of year,
and candy corn just kept coming to mind…
so I had to make me a Candy Corn Flower Block
 And to Celebrate the Color of Fall
I made this block…. love the little pear fabric 
 I think I need to make a few more things with
this fabric, don’t you think?
This block with it’s Gold Leaves
is made with another GO! die
in my stash…
Now this Pumpkins on the Fence Block
is not exactly “hop” block size,
but I definitely had to show it to you…
They’re supposed to be pumpkins….
my bright fabric choices remind me of bell peppers, he he!
Don’t you agree??? LOL!
My sweet friend Katherine helped us make this little quilt
at one of our Guild meetings.
And this Three Little Pumpkins runner
 started out with this block… 
 forgot to take pictures before I put it together….
And that binding was a bear,
but worth the trouble.
Are you loving all these Blog Hops?
Thank you Mdm Samm for making them possible
and cheering us on!!!
Now… do you remember this quilt?
Would you like the pattern?
In appreciation for you stopping by to
see all my little blocks,
I’m giving away one of my Autumn Bliss patterns
to two of my sweet visitors.
