Still Here.....

Ok I never meant to take THAT long of a break from blogging!!!   Hopefully people are still out there!
I do have a few projects to post.  Here's a few pictures of my first completion....
and excuse my pictures - they aren't the best.  I'll have to take some better ones later (when it's not such a rainy/snowy day)

This one I'm pretty proud of. I used my walking foot (for the first time) for all of the straight line stitching and because of the minky back I pinned the heck out of it!!
I kept going back and forth on the quilting - did it need more?  I don't know - I might go back to it and add something.  Probably not because I'm lazy, but you never know. :) 

Do I Look Familiar?
Then I got really ambitious and decided to try some hand stitching for the first time as well.  I borrowed my mom's basket of perle cotton threads and looked up some tutorials and went to town.  I would definitely do it again, but my fingers were quite sore!

And of course I had helpers......

It was a quilt I started thinking it would be a quick little project. Not so much.
But I love it.
Did I mention I love it?  I LOVE it!!!


  1. Its lovely! And the hand stitching makes it really special.

  2. It turned out adorable! I also like your cute little "helpers".
