Recent Projects

A little bit of sewing has been happening round and about all the business of late summer/early fall.  Here are some of my completed projects:

A made a little flannel receiving blanket for a sweet little girl.

I completed a scrappy picnic quilt for some recently married friends.

I made a couple mug rugs to go with some mugs Dave found for me.

And I made some dress-up clothes for my favorite 7-year-old (a skirt and a hooded cape)

I am also happy to say I have started on some Christmas projects, but those can't be shown until next year...

Wednesday with few words

After Ben, Elsa, and E. went home in late July, we kept the girls, and headed to Colorado to meet up with my parents and three of my five siblings.  We had a lovely time!

Wednesday with almost no words

I am still catching up, Gentle Readers.  After the Tucson crew was here, we enjoyed a weekend with the Phoenix Finnegans.  What a wonderful time with family and an opera thrown in!

A few recent projects

Early in the summer I finished a couple of quilts.  Good thing I finished them in early June, because since the last week of June, life has been filled with company and travel and adventure.  But here are some views of the two quilts I finished.

This is a picnic quilt, about 53"x53" in size.

And this is a double-sized quilt.
