How purty is this?


Remember a while back
Jacky and I were gathering 
Candy tins
And I was getting fatter eating
All those chocolates?
Well lookie here
THIS ONE IS SHUT
AND FULL


and I didnt even have to sit on it !
While on the phone one day
I just took them all out and
Made neat little piles



Anyone in for a LONG
Conversation? Lol
These need to be ironed
And tamed ha ha
These are from my 
Geese migration quilt 
Fun fun for another day

Oh baby


When I bought this um carriage full
Of fabric I had something in mind
You see my niece that is crafty needed a little help
She has a lot on her plate with a boyfriend
Newly diagnosed with ms and such but 
Has THREE new babies coming up soon....
One friend having a girl.....one future sis in law having a girl.......
And a cousin having a boy
She is knitting a blanket and made 4 quick little receiving blankets
So I got A ton of flannel and am making burp cloths
And bibs if I can find my pattern



Aren't they adorable?
Love it.......and once cut it is power
Sewing

And one becomes many
I think I am up to 12 now with a couple more cut out.
Need more boy ones so am thinking 
Of raiding my blue stash and pairing with
The gray check for backs

I MAY have overbought
( I heard that snicker!)
Does anyone have any other ideas
What I can make with flannel?
I was thinking of a carrier cover
Wouldn't these all look cute in a 
Clothesline gift? Socks couple onesies
And all pinned to a clothesline for the Mom
To see what washday is like with baby lol

What are you making?
Baby ideas?

A cute kitty zippy bag

Thelma and Louise went on a road trip


THELMA AND LOUISE 
Alias Dawn and Jacky
Went on a roadtrip


First stop was 
Stash enhancement. Look at this....
MY RED TRUCK IN SUMMER FABRIC


HOW CUTE IS THAT?
I was good and didn't buy 


This is Jackys favorite


Some bolts we may or may not have messed with



And lookie here
Half off. Love a good sale



See this sad face?
IT WAS HAPPY


UNTIL SOMEONE
WAS A PARTY POOPER
AND FORBID ME TO
GET ANOTHER THING
um I had gift cards to spend



Please let me get the roll of
Batting 
PULEEEEEEEZZZE

Sure.......don't pay any attention to me 
And check out the batting packages


OMG whose cart is that?
Oh yeah......mine lol


After spending gift cards and then 
Some we were hungry and stopped for lunch at the Longhorn
(Not to be confused with the shorthorn)


Dont open that door
The batting will pop out!


Here was Louise's meal
Chicken honey mustard with parmesean crust  asparagus and sweet potato 


And Thelma had the chicken nuggets and asparagus
A great shopping day with a fun friend
Always makes you smile.......
Thelma and Louise may ride again soon

Vote for your selection


I thought of joining these two sets
Of blocks.....
My idea was the solids would have
Floated......
Nope 
Not sure about it


I like the modern look of these
By themselves


And these too
But i did love these as the
Center of star blocks

I always wanted to make a 
Good night irene quilt too

What way do you like the blocks?
Any other ideas to set them?

Springing ahead


Remember I got a box of solid scraps
From my friend vrooman?
Well, 
in the box was this neat strata
So I cut it in half and joined them at the
Yellow side making a runner
Found another green in the box
Divided the width by 4 to get my pieces
They happened to come out to 3.5 evenly
And sewed on borders
Only a small piece left that will
Become 3.5 squares for another playdate


And this is the newest scarf
Half done
I am thinking these will make nice
Pay it forward gifts this Fall winter season
Lots of folks here walk their dogs and what
A nice way to help stay warm
And i clear out the yarn stash
A win win 
My secret project is almost Done 
Once the recipient has it
I will reveal 
Hee hee   so fun
Whats going on in your sewing room?

A solid project


I am having too much fun
Wish I could stay home and play
These little 4 patches look so cute
Surrounded in solids

It would even make a cute baby quilt 
Of course i have no idea yet what i am making lol
Just 2.5 squares surrounded by 2.5 inch strips
Easy and cute and bonus 2.5 squares
Out of the leftovers


Dunkin did a cat scan to test my seams


Then did the roll test for
Softness and durability


Then the stretch test for size...
With that big butt Dunks I think 
I better keep sewing for a bit longer
