Baby quilt

for a boy--my first time using the Yellow Brick Road pattern and .... drum roll, please! Quilted with Chantilly Lace in honor of Becca, since it's her all time favorite panto. :0) Since DH isn't here to hold it, I pinned it to my curtain.... pretty clever, huh?!? (Just had to tell you why it looks friendly--it really does lie flat, not waving!!)

Tonight I'm going to see the play Peter Pan performed by local talent, including a family that attends our church. I'm looking forward to it, but seems strange to be going without Becca.

Also check out Melinda's blog--she's having a giveaway that you will want to enter . (Just don't take my chance!)

Gertie's stylin'

with new shoes. DH replaced her old wheels with EZ Glides and does she ever slide across the dance floor! Also replaced pinning with leader grips. They make it a snap to load quilts! (Sorry--I couldn't resist!)

Done in time

for Christmas next year is this tree skirt pieced in November of 2008. Knew I wouldn't have it done in time to use, so stashed it away to do next year. November 2009 came and...whoops! no time to get it done. And guess what?! The same thing happened last year, so I decided NOT to procrastinate again (what a novel idea!) so I am now prepared, 10 months early! Hooray for me! Now I need to find the pattern so I know how much fabric yardage to add to my 100 yard dash from stash total.

Tragedy strikes

My computer is dead, so I'm using DH's. All my email folders. my address book etc gone. DH had just backed up all my photos on a flash drive and he can read my hard drive , so I will get them all back, just not immediately. Things could be worse!!

2nd quilt done for 2011

The first one is at the shop, so not photographed to my satisfaction yet! The drunkard's path will NOT be ready, but this baby quilt is. And ahead of schedule! All I know is he will be a boy, so am waiting for labeling purposes. It is the P.S. pattern from Ursula Reikes
