Impromptu

Just a panel I forgot I had...machine quilted it & added lace. will use it as a table topper.
I just love these colors.
I used a variegated thread for quilting.
I had just enough of the lace to fini...about 3" leftover.




Now on my mouse pad.
Morgan is....
Always by my side. 


Morgan....
my assistant is....
sitting on my fabrics.



And when he gets bored he climbs...

 on the 3rd shelf up near the ceiling... 

       
 to see the other half of the basement?

Hambone!

En Provence #4 & #5

Life got in the way

But I finally got a breather to work on En Provence. Here's most of Clue #4........Love Bonnie's new Ruler!



I have roughly 20 more to make
and they're 1/2 done already.


Here's a mouse pad I just made. I've never had one in my new sewing studio...So I thought I would make one...why not.
I found a package of Timtex in my interfacings Bag...
I doubled it up & then quilted it which is hard to see. But it works great.
 Yes, I tape my mouse because it drops to the floor a lot..ha.
It measures 12" X 8 1/4"

And here are 4 flour sack towels I will be embroidering Herbs onto. Part of the Stitchery Club


Here's my progress on the Stitchery Club patterns...just 3 more colors then I decide what to make with it. Frame it, hang it, pin keep?...it measures roughly 6.5" X 6.5".

Fini!

If I had to count how many pin keeps I've made I'd lose count.

The back of the book.
I Loved her so very, very much. We worked at the same company & played softball for years..we had made it to 'A' division in just 4 years..We were always close.
She died the year my son was born. He was 3 mos. old..he is 24 now.
I will always believe the Lord gives & takes away.
