Actually Sewing

Yes, I have been working on a number of things.  I hope that I have photos of all the projects to show you.
I finished this quilt made as a surprise for friend Barbara who has some health challenges.  I think she was quite pleased to be remembered with so much love.  AND it turned out that Linda who had provided most of the fabric and the five pieced blocks had a birthday and I was able to make her a table runner with the bits and pieces left over.

I finished a lap quilt for Sally, but no photo.  Sorry.  I finished a tablecloth for Karen, who sometimes reads this blog, so I cannot show you until I deliver it to her next week.

A fun block from Bonnie Hunter.  I have just been playing with it and seeing how I like it.  Kind of fun.

I had seen a pattern somewhere (I cannot remember or find it again) but it looked something like this, so I made a quilt for an RVing friend and her new trailer.  I hope she likes it.  I was happy with how it turned out.

I apologize for this being a bit blurry, but Yvonne do you ever sing the little song about the "Itsy Bitsy Spider"?  Well it is one of our favorites.
New adventures await.  Visiting family and friends.  Photos to follow.  Hope everyone is well.

I'm Late, I'm late

Sorry.  I do keep thinking about updating my blog but somehow life rushes past and I don't get down to it.  So here is a bit of a catch up of what's been happening.

Working on the quilt that our RV group will sell at their auction in May.  Michele made the side triangles.  I added two borders.  We each made the squares.  I've made the back, so quilting is next.

Working on a thank you gift for a lady in our RV group.  She doesn't read here, so I can show you.

Still working on pieces needed for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery.  I know it was several months ago, but it's my "in-between" sewing project.

A week ago we had a 2-year-old's birthday party.  You know how those go.  GREAT FUN!

Latest project - this is something of a "hurry up" project.  A dear friend was just diagnosed with a rare cancer, so a group of us wanted to do something for her.  This was partially complete.  I put it together and added some fabrics.  It has one more border (I don't know why my latest photos aren't showing up - but you get the general idea).  Tomorrow I will head out and get batting and we should be all set.  I also have backing.
Things are hopping here at Casa Nana.
