I AM EXCITED--

as I finally made it to the sewing room--
and 'Pink Betty' still remembers how to run!!!!
we got the bindings sewed onto 2 small quilts--
and even got the hand sewing done--
this little one is made with a mini charm pack that Alice sent me--
I had the little scottie dog print--
so in honor of Alice--I used a 30's purple fabric for the backing!!
******************************
then I got this one done--
I know that these blocks were done from a sew-along from one of the blogs--
but this 'darn-cute' brain of mine--is not recalling which one--
but it is also all done--the binding is a dark brown and I see it now blends in
with the chair that I photoed it on--sorry!!!
and this is the backing--so on this one I really do have '2' quilts--
as both the front and the backs look like quilts!!
****************************
And this is the hand quilting project that I am working on now--
I am on the borders--
and today I happened to look down on it from my chair and realized that---
I had to do the 'frog' thing--haven't done the 'frog' thing in a long time--
as I discovered that the vine quilting going up the side --
the fabric was really 'bunched' up between the stitching and the blocks--
soooo--out it came--
we will start it over again!!!!

It is a bit cooler here--though in living upstairs I am still on the warmer side!!!

So happy stitching everyone--
love, di and miss gracie

  6. Cute quilts! Are the baskets maybe from Temecula Quilts? I think I saw something similar there, but I haven't got around to making them yet. I love anything with baskets. It was almost chilly here today - I hope it lasts for a few days. Can't wait to see your applique quilt. Smooches to you and Miss Gracie
