Quick Clean Up

I am still working with the flannel.

I love these strip quilts.

They go together fast.

But all that flannel is hard on the machine.
So I talked someone into a quick cleaning.

It is nice to have him around.

Black Lace

A couple of years ago,
I picked up a great black dress from Lands End.
It fit perfect and it was a bargain to boot.

Well, in the last year,
I have lost 35ish pounds.
and that darn dress just doesn't fit like it used to.

So I decided to fix the neckline.
I went to buy some black lace.
It was $14.95 a yard.

 I am still obsessed with making little flannel blankets for my friends nicu project.
Here are her pictures.

Feel free to contact her at
and see what she is up to.

Little Quilts

I have been sewing these little quilts together.

They are 36 x 40ish

I have been using scraps of flannel and piecing together cotton batting.
These are for my friend who is making NICU survial kits.
It is kinda fun to whip them up.
I think I will work on these until 
I need to get to work on my new grandsons quilt.

And I put the boarders on this quilt.

The sun came out this week.
Can't beat that.

I finished it!

 I finished it! I'm pretty happy about that. We had a little bit of snow, so I took it out. There is something about the...
