It's Been A While

We survived the weekend with the neighbor's dogs. I think that sometimes dogs are more tiring than kids. At least I know what's wrong with the kid starts whining. Dog not so much.

Anyhow, I finished 2 quilt tops that have been sitting.
This was from a Moda Bake Shop pattern. I got really bored with it so it sat on the shelf for a long time. This weekend was a good weekend to pull it out and finish the top.

Not as big as I wanted it to be, but again got bored with it. At least it's a flimsy now.

I'm hoping over Christmas break I can get some serious quilting done.

Until my next random post.....

Quilted for Chris

Chris had me quilt her totally awesome quilt top. She did an incredible job on  the piecing. The colors are beautiful.  The fabric is Kate Spain.  I think I'm a new Kate Groupee!

Lots of Blocks

Block 2

Block 4

Block 5

This one is going to be really hard to return to it's rightful owner. I think the owner should be ME! :-) Guess I will have to get busy and make my own version.

You can check Chris out on her blog.

Have a great night!!!

Little Buckaroo

I was hired to make a quilt for a gal at work who is expecting another grandbaby. She said that her son rides bulls in the rodeo. Well, it's not very easy to find bulls on fabric so we had to settle for horses, specifically broncos.

I added some embroidery as well to make the quilt look more like a baby quilt.



Bull and Hat


Next on my list is a quilt to be quilted for another work person. I'm hoping to get it loaded tonight and possibly start working on it tomorrow or Friday night.

Have a great rest of the week.

Random Stuff

Just some random stuff that makes me happy.  What makes you happy????

Bug Jars
Quilted this weekend for a customer.   I hope it goes to a lucky little boy.

Unwind Finished
Unwind finished with my model holding it for me.

31 Gifts
Thirty-One Gifts - I love their stuff.  This was for someone else, but I have the same cool purse.

Birthday Gift
Birthday present for a munchkin at school.

Me, my friend Nikki and Taylor Hanson (yes from the band Hanson).  Can't help it, they make me happy when I listen to their music. And yes I am old enough to be his mother (ouch).

At the concert having a GREAT time!!!

Soccer on Saturday has been so much fun this year.

Going to the zoo and hanging out with two little girls that will let me hang out with them (still).

Nature at it's finest.

Two cornballs thinking that the best thing in life is a colored tongue.

Thanks for letting me be goofy and share.

Good for a Laugh

That kid of mine is always good for a belly laugh.  This is how she came down dressed for her soccer game.

Have a GREAT day!

Just checking in.  I've been so busy with embroidery that I haven't been able to do much else.  Unfortunately a lot of it left the house without pictures.  Hopefully after this week I will have some pictures to share.

School started and it seems that I can't quite get into the swing.  I'm not sure what my issue is.  There's a lot more homework this year.

Because I'm feeling so incredibly boring, I leave you with a couple pictures from the fair in August.  The quilt was made by Pat Komer of Willowcreek Quilting.  She did an awesome job on the applique and quilting.  Best of Show.

The girls racing on the big slide. Just makes me smile looking at it.

Have a great week.

Binding Needed

And then it's officially done.  Finally after 5 years and a whole lot froggin', it's finally quilted and almost ready for the bed.  Turning Twenty is the pattern. It's queen size and barely fit on my frame. Not sure what I will do if I decide to make a quilt for our bed. Pay someone with a much bigger machine, I guess.

Turning Twenty

I'm getting ready (slowly) for the Ladies Night Out that I participate in.
More Halloween Towels

Have a great day!

I'm so ready for school to start and be back into a routine. Right now I feel like I'm flying by the seat of my pants. Camp finished up last week so hubs and I are rotating days this week staying home.

I did finish a top on Tuesday when I was off. All the rows were done I just needed to sew the top together. I'm hoping to get it on the frame and quilted over the weekend.


So I leave you with this picture and hopefully when normal resumes, so will I with blogging.

EDITED:  This is a Jaybird pattern, but I didn't follow her directions completely.

This is a signature quilt that someone dropped off for me to quilt.  Really easy to do because she only wanted it stippled, nothing else.  GREAT, I can do that.

It's been horribly hot here in KC.  Yesterday I had the brilliant idea to take Grace and 2 other girls to see Big Time Rush at Worlds of Fun.  Not a good idea on my part.  107 degrees and no shade.  $5 for water which in mind was extortion at it's worst.
Big Time Rush

Hopefully this week I can get back to sewing and cooler weather type activities.

My Other Blog

I'm going to try to get better at putting my embroidery stuff on my embroidery blog.

I've been busy lately working on embroidery stuff.  I'm hoping to post some pictures that are quilt related tomorrow.

In the meantime, you can go check out my other blog here.

I went to the quilt shop yesterday at lunch just to look around and take a break from the BS that is work. Anyhow, I found some new fabric and pulled it out to look at the label. $11.49/yd. I literally shook my head and looked again thinking my eyes were playing tricks on me. OH NO! What am I going to do? Eat or make quilts, cloth my child or make quilts? I guess I could cloth my child in a quilt. I was starting to feel like a hoarder before when it came to scraps. I know the sight of $11.49/yard is going to send me over the edge and cause damage to my already damaged brain. I know I read the prices were going up. That's INSANE.

I finished up the pink and grey quilt top this long weekend. The fabric line is Urban Angel. I really wish I would have bought more. Reminds me of biker chics.

I was also asked to make golf towels for a 60th birthday party. I made 21 towels for party guests.  Got hubs involved too and had him help me put grommets on all of the towels.

On top of that I also took in bags from 31 consultants that needed embroidery work.  Those are way too hard to take pictures of.

All in all a good weekend.  This morning was the Annual Popsicle parade through the neighborhood.  The fire department came and hooked up to a hydrant right by our pool and let the kids have some fun.





Happy 4th of July!!!
