Treasures

I finished this quilt.

You will have to forgive me,
but
I'm feeling victorious right now.


I went to an estate sale yesterday.
I walked in the house and the entire living room was
full of tables stacked with fabric.
They were selling it by the pound.
It wasn't really selling.

I need to tell my family,
If anything ever happens to me,
Just give the fabric away...
or 
Throw it away.



I did buy these.
Who remembers when you could buy thread for 29 cents?  

Love them.

Just keep swimming

My oldest son had a roommate in college that kinda became part of the family.

One day, he said, 
When I get married, will you make us a quilt?

Of course I said yes.

So here I am two weeks before school ends
machine quilting a quilt top I had in my 
'to-do' pile.



It's all good, and I couldn't be happier for him.

Ugly Fabric

I have had this fabric for years.
I'm talking about the beige with the butterflies.
It is sooo ugly,
but I really wanted to see if I could use in a quilt
and be done with it.




This is another thing I cut out before I made a plan.

All in all, 
It looks as good as it ever will.

Sweet

This little quilt made it.

There is nothing like seeing the baby with the quilt,

Well, except seeing the baby,
which I have.

In the Mail!

I finished this little quilt and put it in the mail.


This picture is to demonstrate that we have passed the snowy stage
and life and color areccoming back to our area of the planet.



This quilt really is sweet.


I took my dear friend Dixie to the quilt show yesterday.
She is a joy to go with.
She may not think that all the quilts are beautiful,
but she can find beauty in most of them.



I finished a quilt top for my refugee quilt goal.
I am going to have a major sandwich day soon.

That time of Year

As a teacher, my mind is going crazy this time of year.
Can this one read?
Can this one write?
Why does this Math never end?

My students are on my mind 24/7 this time of year.

But I really needed to take an hour and sew this week.


I started putting this together.  
I like it.
It just needs more time.

Progressing

I just started cutting,
and then sewing,

So I finally stopped and made plan.




I found this fabric.
If it doesn't make you happy, I don't know what will.
