Bonnie's Texas Braid

Another Bonnie pattern 'Texas Braid'
I really Love this pattern...Her version quite large. 93" X 103"..I am not making mine that big! As Gorgeous as that would be. Besides my design wall isn't big enough for those measurements.
I had this kitted up for awhile..when I opened the artbin everything was already cut & ready to sew!

CW Quilt & a Table Runner



My CW quilt is another Fini...blocks designs by Bonnie's friend Randy @ Barrister's Block Blog..
My Mr. is painting my rails, so it will be a few more days before I can quilt some more...Erik asked me when he can quilt again...Awww..... a Son after my own heart.



It seems he is enjoying the sewing process too.
He's working on a table runner for us.

And here's the fini runner

Grand Illusion Fini


I'll cross this one off of my WIP list..
First time using my mid arm & 12' frame..still needs tweaking.
Fresh out of the wash.

It's being fussy about thread...It doesn't like Aurifil 40wt. but it works fine with King Tut 40 wt.
It's a Consew 7360R with a laser light

Next to quilt is my CW Farmers Wife quilt.
What a good Son, giving his Mother a break..

 Please disregard the ugly basement

Some of Everything


This is a photo heavy post...just a heads up.
I thought I took pics of my frame & Mid arm machine set up, but can't find them...I'll take more..
Took me 3 tries to put the quilt on correctly, but My Peter helped & figured it out for me..4 rails are confusing!
I'm starting with Grand Illusion because I need the practice & it's not a favorite, so it works.

Here are some Dolls I made by hand. 
I never had a doll as a little girl..

 Miss Mable
Lil Miss Bunny

Miss Olive
Miss Olive's wig was made from yarn.

Here's Miss Olive with Miss Petunia.

My take on Raggedy Ann


She has pretty bloomers on under the dress
