Finally feeling some what rested up from the wedding. To get back into sewing, I pulled out my triangles from the DCSMLA.
Not sure which way I like this netter.
In any case it is on the frame and ready to quilt. Just have to decide what to quilt!
If anyone is interested in a few more wedding photos, the photographer posted a few sneak peaks here.
I really need to do some laundry but I just want to play!
Until next time…
Just a few pics from a proud momma.
I will be back to sewing and blogging soon.
Only 5 days until the wedding! This past weekend was filled with lots of this:
Thankfully, we got all the kid’s stuff moved to the apartment and they are mostly unpacked. I had a wonderful Mother’s Day! It was the first in a long time that I had Daughter #2 home from the Air Force to enjoy the day with. Only #1 Son was missing and he will arrive with his lovely bride on Thursday night. Which is why my sewing room looks like this:
And my design wall looks like this :
DH found this sign for him at a sale recently. I decided to hang it up since I don’t have any projects there right now. That doesn’t mean I haven’t sewn anything! Our Michigan QOV coordinator sent out an email asking for a QOV for presentation to fulfill a request. I had the last one quilted but not bound. I was up early this morning and decided to see if I had anything that would work for binding and found I had one all prepared! I got the binding done, the presentation case sewn, and the label ready. The quilt is in the wash now and I will add pics as soon as it is out of the dryer. I will get it shipped today! It feels so good to get this finished. I hate to think of any of our vets waiting for a quilt. Here is the case and label:
I am linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for DWM.
Here is a pic of the finished quilt:
Now I’m off to the post office!
Roberta Boyce was instrumental in organizing the Quilting Treasures Challenge to benefit the new veteran’s home being built in Utah. The quilts were displayed at the HMQS Show this pastweek. She was kind enough to send me a picture of the quilt I made as it hung in the show.
I hope the veteran who receives this quilt will know how much I appreciate his/her sacrifice on behalf of our nation.
The wedding week has begun! We got the kids stuff all moved to their apartment. Daughter #2 has arrived from Arizona. Son and Daughter in Love arrive Thursday.
It’s a great Mother’s Day! I hope it is for you too. God is good and I am blessed with an amazing husband and the best kids ever!
Yesterday was another busy day. First stop was at the vet. this guy is not happy.
I wouldn’t be either
Ouch! He has another incision as well. The vet removed a couple benign growths. After that more shopping, cleaning, cooking etc. ensued. Then off to the library to work for the evening. When I got home, I finally took some time to play withy new machine!
Such fun! Off to work again.
Lots going on here but no quilting. Here is one of the projects we crossed off the list yesterday:
These are new cushions I made for Daughter #1′s mid century modern couch. I also modified a king size sheet to fit her queen size bed, added a bit of hand beading to her wedding garter, shopped for odds and ends etc. good thing I didn’t work yesterday! I have a full work week ahead of me and then I am off until after the wedding.
Sunday night, DH helped me finish the set up for this:
I can’t wait to play! But I must wait a while. The power cord that came with the machine is not for use in the US. Waaaaaaa! I called the dealer who called HQ and they are shipping out the right one ASAP. It’s probably a good thing since I don’t have time right now anyway.
Now I must get back to work!
