Snow Day!


Here is what we've got so far...more is coming. We are all stuck at home- yea! It is so beautiful but I haven't gone out to shovel yet and I might feel differently after doing some of that! Of course, the snow blower is in the shop.....:(

My latest project for a dear friend. This was the last piece of this tablecloth-very lovely...sad to see it go!!!! I just love making these- they take on a life of their own! I meant to have the handles with the design on the inside but ooops and they look good this way! There are no mistakes!

Strawberry/Cherry Apron

Added the red border because of a hole, but adding polka-dots is always a good thing. I love making aprons- it really showcases the vintage tablecloths.

Porch Swing Cushion Cover




Well, lots has changed since I last posted. The Gallery has moved- 2 doors west- to 128 W James. We are sharing the space with the 1928 Dunbar popcorn wagon that was an icon here in Columbus for many years. It's a great piece of Columbus history! And I can make popcorn anytime I want! YUM!!!
The cushion cover is a custom order I just finished. It has 2 different looks- the yellow piece is from a vintage tablecloth. I am sewing more and loving it!

Dysfunctional!

I love Michael Miller fabrics! This line happens to be "Dysfunctional Family". A client picked out 3 of the blocks and I made these zippered bags for 3 of her friends. Too cute! And funny!!!
Made a couple of onesies, too. many people I know are having grandchildren! I am not ready for that yet, but I'm sure it will fun someday.
Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend!

4-patch swap blocks


4-patch swap blocks

My Favorite Quilters group is having a 4-patch swap and these are the ones I am mailing out tomorrow morning. I love doing these swaps and I start out all excited and on the ball but kind of "peter-out" about half-way thru! The thrill of starting something new! So, if you swap with me, you'll get something a bit late, but worth it.

This quilt for our bed has been waiting for it's binding for a couple of years! It is one of my New Year's resolutions...after this is finished,it's off the the BIG washing machine to soften it up a bit.
Next I will have to make some window treatments to coordinate. I do have some pillow shams started that also need finishing, too!
