HAPPY TURKEY DAY

Up early to walk the dog and then get cooking!!! I will put up some pictures of the cooking madness later when my daughter gets up and helps me download them on this computer...the never-ending battle with this one! (the computer, not the daughter) We did get about an inch of snow last night...it looks so pretty on the ground!

OK- I am going to try to keep this up a bit more regularly!! I'm not very comfortable doing this- don't think I have anything anyone would be interested in but I love reading others blogs and so here I go....

Enjoying the day here at the Gallery- hope to get at some sewing before the mad rush of cooking tomorrow for Thanksgiving. My dad and brother will come up and the kids are coming home from college today. After having the house so quiet for awhile it will be interesting and hopefully fun! We never know!

The most recent project was a custom diaper bag. The baby came early so I'm glad it was done. The mom is very happy with it so I am glad!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

I made this for a dear friend. These are her grandmother's hankies. I framed each hanky with colors that were in the hanky to make the blocks all the same size. It's like a rainbow! Another friend quilted it- with a different pattern in each block! I only do the piecing...after that I have no more creativity left and she's so great at it, I just leave it up to her!

Almost May!!


Boy! I have been very lazy about posting here! It's very busy getting ready for the Carriage Classic and I haven't been doing any sewing which is making me very crabby! I need to make a schedule!!!! I need to re-visit "Time Management from the Inside Out" by Julie Morgenstern. I love that book! It really helps you focus and get your schedule just where you need it for you.

I've been having so much fun with my Flickr groups, too! it's so nice to have these little families-so supportive and so creative!

Hope everyone is getting ready for Spring!!!!
This is a quilt I made for Claire- on e of my children's best friends. She's in college. We went shopping for the fabric together- it was so much fun!

My Label



This is my label. A friend drew the thimble from one in my collection. I love red and I collect thimbles-thus the name.

art pins/valentines

I made these last year for the Valentines Day sale. Some of the pins are vintage fabric, some are new. The heart is a piece of vintage hanky. I love making things with the little scraps I just can't throw away.

Stay healthy!!!!
