She’s caught the bug!

In my last post, I showed you some fabrics in pink, teal and purple that were pulled to make three quilts for three little girls for Christmas.

Weekend Flurries with no chance of housework…

My daughter and wee grandson were out of town for the weekend so I geared up for some serious production in my sewing room this weekend while pining away for baby snuggles.  I had to put my energy somewhere that would distract me.

Sewing in Secret

I do love posting my quilting projects as they are unfolding.  Often I will post my fabric choices and perhaps the first of many blocks, and finally the layout and ending with the finished project.

We are expecting our first grandson August 23rd but it will likely be earlier than that.

En Provence – Thanks for the Memories!!

I am just about finished my Quiltville 2016/17 winter mystery quilt.  I was on the Mediterranean cruise with Bonnie last August and was actually in Provence so I just HAD to take part in this year’s mystery.  And besides, purple is my favourite colour.

The one thing with a mystery is that you can choose fabrics that complement each other but until you know how they will be used,
