Keeping busy....

My son gave me an awesome book last Christmas, Quilt & Sew Country Style by Anne-Pia Godske Rasmussen, published by Search Press. Find it, its worth it!!! I have had great fun as you can see.

Some cats.....





A bird to brighten my daughter's desk at work....


And rooster to crow over her new kitchen...


 (sorry about the dark photo below)


 And another bird for a friend's birthday....


And I haven't even made half of her beautiful goodies.

Quiltable Quotes



                                                           "You are the finest, 
                                                            loveliest, tenderest, 
                                         and most beautiful person I have ever known - 
                                                               and even that 
                                                          is an understatement."

                                                                                                    F. Scott Fitzgerald


So romantic.....

More this and some of that.....

As  I said a post or two ago, I have been dabbling in felt, think I may be getting the hang of it!  I found this really cute little fox bookmark in Craft Beautiful magazine together with the various "ingredients" needed to make it.  I decided to give it a try.



This is the magazine it came from. Chock full of all sorts of goodies to make!



 But then, I had to have my fabric fix.  It just feels so 'right' in my hands, what can I say.....



It is not good to have all your stuff packed away!!!

Quiltable quotes




I don't know who to attribute the design to, I wish I did as I love it....the words of course, which I also love, are from the Bible.

This and that

Keeping busy while apart from my husband has not proved to be a problem.  I am so grateful that I have a a quilting passion that has helped pass the lonely hours.

I have taken this time to design a new quilt pattern (more on that later) and try my hand at some new things, some of them completely out of my comfort zone.  Its been fun and a great learning experience!!

This is one of them!  I have worked very little with felt, so the subject matter (!) and the medium were new to me!

A Day of the Dead bookmark for a skull mad colleague






Got a lot to learn about felt.........  (Not taken with my new camera as you can see!)
