Merry Christmas to you All

Thought I would share the top part of a quilt for my 4 year old granddaughter. Almost finished bottom, will post next week. Between having my granddaughter and house showings I have had to put my sewing  and stitching on hold. Check in next week

Here is another quilt. I just have quilting left to do in the middle

Stitching 12 hour

I'm still working on Ariel and some other
 gifts for xmas. I can't post them as my best friend will probably figure they are for her. We agreed to make something for each other this year as I have more time. 
As far as my quilts I have 3 ready to sew but every time I lay them out i have to pick them up cause we keep getting showings on our house. Another one on Monday morning. I'm hoping to sew all week during the days and stitch at night. Here is a pic of one of my favorite quilts. It is a Bargello and I love the colors. I'm doing a kimono in the same colors. It's a stitching piece. Keep you all posted.

Hi Kate
Thank you. I do have pieces I'm still working on from the 80's but now I have lots of time. 
I would love to see some of your stitching I'm new at this blogging but I will catch on.

Magic Dragon

Well, I am finished,!!  I started this project in 2012 for my granddaughters 2nd birthday, January 2013.  I did not get it finished as my mother took ill December 2012 and passed February 2013.  I finally got it finished and framed in Summer of 2013.  Then 2014 has been a real rough road but as of June 2014 I have retired. So here is the final project of the Magic Dragon. Thank you for your patience!!

Happy Birthday Soleil!!

Shepherds Bush - House Haunting

Hi there,
I wanted to make something for my sister in PEI. She loves to decorate outside for the fall and for Halloween. It's a big thing down there so I thought I'd stitch the Haunted House and make it into a sack that she can stuff and put decorations coming out.  Done on 10 count. Very fast and easy!!
Will get her to send pic!! Happy Halloween!!
