Quilting Again ! ! !

Good News!
I had time to baste this quilt Monday.

It is good to be quilting again.

This is going to be so pretty when they start to grow.
I do have a thing for flowers.

I found this last night.
I thought it was a weed,
but my daughter in law 
informs me that it is a flower.

We will have to wait and see.

This is soooooo pink.
But it isn't finished.

Another wait and see.

One More Machine

Welcome to the sewing room.
I know, another machine.
I had a serger years ago.
I used it and used it.
I hope I can do it again.

I struggled this week making a simple skirt for a friend of mine.
The struggle was with the sheer fabric.

When it was over, 
I went outside.

We are starting a new project on the deck.

A little construction.

I have been busy with this little outfit.
I know it is to big for my 
new, little grandson,
so I may have some work to do yet.

Life is moving fast right now, 
and it doesn't look like it will slow down 
any time soon.

Happy Mothers Day

While working on a project that I didn't really want to do.
I found this treasure.
It is in pretty good shape,
Needs cleaned up.

And yes, there is a sewing machine in it.
It's heavy, which means that Mr. Wes can probably
clean it up 
and get it running.

I have been blessed with an awesome mother.
She taught me how to sew 
and even more important,
let me sew, 
when I was too young to know what I was doing.
Here she is in her younger days,
hanging out with her friends at the lake.

Happy Mothers Day.

Where did April Go?

We have been retrieving two of our boys from college.
They are home for a while,
but I have lost track of time.
Where did April go?

Working on putting a quilt together.
It has been warm and dry here, 
so I am hoping to do it outside on the deck. 

I did a wobbly line when I quilted these guys.

It is done and the baby is already here.
I think I will deliver it next time I see the baby.

I have another busy week planed.
Clothing construction is on the agenda.
Should be fun.

Minky Backs

 When I made this quilt,  I envisioned a bright pink minky back. I found the minky  (on Amazon and it is a nice minky) and t...
