A Little Quilting Going On

I really don't feel like I have accomplished much in the way of quilting in the last two months. It really has been hectic but I have gotten some new things started. Don't even ask about the ones in the works, lol.

Figgy Pudding....I could not pass this collection up. Ordered it from Fat Quarter Shop about 2 weeks ago and I am trying to get it done and to the quilter's as quickly as possible. I want it ready for my bed come December 1. I just adore this line, and the pattern. You can download the pattern from Moda, or, if this doesn't appeal to you, Kimberly also has a kit from this frabic.

These are the large blocks for Figgy Pudding. I am enlarging it, of course. I seem to do that a lot.

My design wall. The quilt on the left is from the pattern Diamond in the Rough. I am putting borders on it and then it will be finished. The wild one on the right is a quilt I am doing with Kaffe Fassett fabric. I belong to a monthly club at Quiltworks that makes quilts from Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I am caught up through month 4 on this. I just love it!

This is a quilt I am doing in batiks. I fell in love with these and am working on the pattern pictured. Of course I am making it larger also. I go to a sew-in every Wenesday at Quiltworks and this is the quilt I am currently working on there. I try to get something prepared each week so I can concentrate on sewing. Of course there is a lot of chatter theress and all of the women that come are really terrific quilters. Makes one want to excel, that's for sure.
Thanks to those of you who have stopped by to see me. I have missed you. Nancy in MI, please send me your email address. I have misplaced it.
Hope all is well with everyone.

Just a Tad of Ice Cream

We just went out to get some milk from Braum's. And look what we ended up with. The signs for this looked so good, and I haven't had a banana split in forever. I ate about 1/3 of mine and Aud about 1/4 of hers. So now we have revisited our youth, or tried to, and they just don't make banana splits like they used to.

"Don't Close the Door"

This is a Door Harp that I painted back in period of my life that I was doing Toile Painting. It hangs on my bedroom door and has been there ever since we moved in this house. When it is moved it makes a very soft tinkling sound.

Last night Miss Aud is standing in front of this and talking to me, don't even remember what about. She turns to leave and starts to close the door.

"Don't Close the Door"

Ok, what is that noise I hear. Is your phone ringing? Is that an alarm. Miss Aud is looking around and up and down and I am grinning from ear to ear.

I don't hear anything

Yes you do

No, must be your imagination, and I am grinning like a cat.

Perry, I know you know what it is


She starts out the door

Mom, it is the door


I don't think she realizes yet what was causing the sound.

I Really Will Post Soon

Hi, all, I promise I really will post something soon. It has been a very busy and unorderly last couple of months and I am just treading water at the moment.

Aud and I are basically doing ok and I appreciate everyone that has emailed me asking if we are ok. Thank you so much for caring. And Aud says to tell everyone thank you also.

I hope to have the time to take some pictures etc after this week is over and I will try to get some of them posted.

I have been reading people's blogs, so I am trying to keep up with you'll. Hope this week is going well for you, and, yes, my hair still has purple in it, lol.
