Hearts

Hi welcome to my blogg. I just changed all my colors on here today and rearranged some things. I must say I haven't crazy quilted or embroidered in 6 months. I am going crazy with tatting. I can't even leave the house without taking it with me. I just find tatting so relaxing to do and it works up so fast. The pieces turn out so beautiful that I can't wait to start the next one.

Darlene's quilt

Hi don't have any new pictures this week. I'm trying to make a quilt for my dayghter, she"s getting married in November and I want to have the quilt done for her shower. We usually have different tastes, but I'm hoping she will like this quilt. It will have moose, tress, leaves and acorns on it.
She just loves moose and she has a few moose things in her home(salt & pepper etc). I hope it comes out good. She always askes me to make her something and I thought of this the other day and I must get busy on it. I will still be doing my heart blocks in between. Well bye for now---------------HAPPY QUILTING.

This is the quilt I'm making for my daughter. I hope she will like it. I put moose because she is crazy for them and she's getting married in Nov. so I like the fall theme. I think the colors will go good in here living room. I am going to do the buttonhole stitch around all the appliques and I don't now what kind of quilting I will do in the border.

I finished the quilt I was making for my daughters shower on Oct 5. I finished in plenty of time and I think it came out pretty well. She just loves moose and since it's fall and a fall wedding I put trees and acorns. I really hope she likes it. I used meandering for the backround quilting and on the border I quilted some of the leaves in the fabric pattern. I can;t wait to give it too her.

I am making these for the shower. I have to make 30 of them, so far I have 19 done. I have been doing it nonstop for 3 days. I hope to finish them today, and then I will get back to my crazy quilting. They have sachet in them, my daughter had received one as a gift years ago in red and she said mom I bet you could make these for the favors at the shower. I made my own pattern and formed the hangers out of wire. I hope she will like them as she doesn't no I decided to do them.

So much to do

I haven't had time to post any of my work. My daughter is getting married as you no and the shower is in 3 weeks. I am making the party favors so now I will have to work on that. I am also teaching myself how to tat, so I am really enjoying myself since I quit my job. I love it all this time for my hobbies.
