Blue lagoon in the jungle


Lol I am not usually one to name
My quilts except to indentify them 
on a to do list.
This lagoon runner is backed with 
A green jungle print I had


Perfect. ..and lime green binding has been
pulled ready to add 

Perfect again


I was on a roll .......So I sewed up these cuties
From Lisa
(I can sew these instead of
Working on my projects if I wanna)
And pulled some purple for the back
Quilted it up and pulled binding fab
Love when a plan comes together

Now I have three runners ready for binding
YAHOO

What are You up to?

Rain makes everything grow


The rains here lately
Have made flowers 
And lawns and weeds grow 
Like crazy....
One day I had one pretty iris......


And the next day I had bouquets!
These were planted by the previous owner
And are such a pretty color
I seperated them last FALL 
And they are beautiful and prolific
This year......gotta look and see
When I can take some out to give away.



And when it rains I sew
Cause it makes me happy

This is one of those slow
Projects
Because I need to get the lights out
To play with the blues
You know when you get to that point where
Things are not ready
Bobbins need winding
Fabric needs to be chosen and cut



But charms already cut?
Well thats an invitation to sit and sew

What are you making in Your sewing room?





Do you think these are good prizes


Do you think these would make good
Prizes



maybe some sets of magnets?

hmmmm

Leftovers


Being brought up on the farm
One of 5 children
We made use of everything
Including leftovers 

When we cooked beets, we used the greens
And the beets
And the beet water was made into beet jelly. Yum
Anyway, I found these blocks just
Hanging out in my sewing room
So joined them
Right now they are a child size quilt
 But you never know-
More block friends may be hiding
To be added later.

Do YOU do LEFTOVERS

Have you made these


Has anyone made these?
I need to make little prize
Gifts for our reunion
Thought the kiddos and
Adults may like these



Finished off the two scarves
Into the box you go
These will be so fun to
Give away this coming 
FALL/WINTER season
And my yarn stash is
Getting smaller
Yay


Used my Cvs extra bucks
And got two game prizes
For the reunion
Every bit helps
What do you think would
Be fun?
Was thinking wish bracelets
Earbud holders
Crayon rolls
Chapstick keyrings
Maybe even some
Microwave bowls
Any ideas for quick small
Prizes I can make for our
JULY reunion?

JULY is coming quickly


July we are having a reunion
Of my Dad's side.
Especially as he had  tough winter
And he is the only one left in his
Generation.
So I am trying to get things made for
Some games and prizes.
Last time the wish bracelets were a hit
And the chapstick keychains
So this is a stack of 21 keychains ready 
For step 2. Turn then add the ring 
And turn up, stitch and insert chapstick



And I quilted another runner
I AM ON A ROLL
Binding is cut needing to be
Ironed and sewn

H
