My daughters friend (never met him in person but love him like a son) has a birthday this week and I heard he loves halloween. Again this quilt looks much better in person. The digital camera picked up the dots and made it look really busy but it came out great. I hope he loves it. Posted it in the mail today.

I almost posted on facebook before I realized he's a friend on there and would have seen it before the mail arrived. One look and he's know it was his. I took the picture before I added the binding but I used the green from the blocks for the binding as well.


I finally have some done enough for pictures. This is the second one that will be donated to the church for our annual Ladies Dessert. The event is 100% proceeds to the benevolence fund and we raffle off 2 quilts as well. These colors look better in person than in picture.

Have several bow tuck purses in the works and one gone with no picture but here is the latest. This came out really cute.

I can't believe that I seem to be so busy for the first time I am missing committments yet I look back on my blog and it doesn't look like I'm getting any quilts done this year. However on reflection I realized I did finish the 2 for the ladies dessert (one just got binding yesterday so not posted yet), 2 baby quilts, a pink and yellow for my neighbor, the carpenter star for friend at church, the Day and Night for dessert tablecloth and have a number of them started.

Here's half of my new bargello. This one will be going on my bed.

I took a Diamond Jubliee bargello class Saturday. I had forgotten how much work the bargello's are but they are just amazing when they are finished. Here are the colors I'll be using. Once I have the top half put together I'll post a picture. It's made in 2 identical halves and joined top and bottom for the total look. This one I'm not giving away so don't ask.


I feel like I haven't actually finished anything cause there are no pictures here. But after the 2 baby quilts (which I forgot to photograph) I did finish one for the ladies dessert. As soon as the binding is done I will post that one here. However this past week I got one completely finished.

This quilt is going to a soldier in the middle east. I don't know his name yet but hopefully will once it's been delivered. I wish more people would get involved in this. I think every one of our men and women need to be reminded we are thinking of and praying for them.
