Little Mister Checking In

Guess what today is? It's my birthday! Nana can't believe I'm 3 already. Joanna, oops I mean Mama made me this Ernie shirt. I really like it.
This is what I do when Nana tells me to put on my "Happy Face".
Joanna(why does everyone call her that?)Mama made cupcakes & cake pops for my party. That's my friend Dane watching me blow out the candles.
I keep asking Nana is she has a ticket yet so she can come see me. I hope she gets one soon. I like doing things my way now that I'm 3. Maybe you can remind everyone that "I am the boss". It doesn't seem to work when I say it.

Nana was too busy quilting to talk today. She'll be back soon.

Magical Cottages & Pandas

Sandy embroidered these cute cottages. I think they were a BOM. Don't you love the colors in this quilt? So happy!
I thought the curls kept it whimsical.

The back of the quilt is pretty too.
Betty made this quilt for her daughter who loves pandas.
A little spike left spike right in the red sashing. Do you say words in your head to keep your quilting design going?
I quilted bamboo a la Judy Irish allover this quilt. It's a lot easier than you think.
So much easier to see on the back.
I went to the beach last night. Wasn't it beautiful out? So warm. I'll show you pictures later.

Little Mister Andrew turns 3 this week. Doesn't seem possible does it? I the Birthday Boy might have something to say later this week!

More quilts coming soon!

The Crabapple Hill Quilts

Several of my customers have been working on holiday quilts. Especially Crabapple Hill designs. I have quilted a couple samples for the LQS that has sent customers my way.

The first one is from Karen, Over The River & Through The Woods.
Clouds. You can click on this for a closer look.

Border windy swirls.

Sashing loops with a twist.

Next up Sue's "Walking in a Winter Wonderland". Love this quilt & all the different reds.

I decided on a holly theme for the background. Some of the fabrics had holly on them.

Echo & Swirly Girly.

Terry Twist & holly.

More swirls.

What does your week look like? Enjoying the sunshine here. I picked more green beans yesterday. Guess you know what I'll be doing next!

Stay tuned, more quilts to come!

We Interrupt Our Regular Program

Dad(on the right) & Bob have turned a neglected courtyard at Josephine into a garden. The local newspaper wrote about them here. Cleaning up flower beds, planting strawberries, herbs & veggies. There's even a little greenhouse they start the seeds in! Dad asked me to help him pick the beans, he can't reach the low ones.
I should have taken a picture of the 15# bag I picked. Here they are after Mr S helped me trim & cut them.
I had to dust off this.
Buy some of these.
I ended up with 22 pints of frozen green beans.
Not exactly what I had planned to do last week. I need to be thankful that somewhere in that forgetful brain is still the hard working busy Dad of long ago. Just don't give him the hedge trimmer.

I'll be thankful this winter when I'm eating tasty beans!

Stay tuned for more quilt pictures coming soon.

Sister's Cascade

I did a leaf curl design in some of the pinwheels. You might have to click for a closer look.

The border was MEGA wide. What to do..................."Calling all leaves". My new name for any leaf twisting here & there border.
I have a couple Crabapple Hill quilts ready to go out the door to customers. Photo shoot today,pictures tomorrow.
