First Project Linus Top

Here is my first project linus quilt. A fellow chatter sent me a kit from her guild and I am sending it back to her to be donated. Maybe next time I will just do one from my stash!

New addition to sewing room

Before I moved to Kentucky to be with Josh I had an obsession other then quilting. I was obsessed with fish and aquariums. I had 9 tanks which ranged from frog to freshwater to brackish. I also bred my betta fish. I waited until I was settled and had a perfect spot for a fish where he would not be ignored. On Saturday, I set my 5 gallon hex tank up in my sewing room. After going to 3 fish stores I found Bernie(named after my Bernina). He sits right next to my sewing table and keeps me company. Without further ado ... meet Bernie

Garage Sale Find

My girlfriend Brooke and I went to the longest yard sale this weekend. The one that runs from Alabama to Ohio. We just went to a few stops in Ohio. I found a handmade quilt at a reasonable price. I paid $30.00 for this quilt. I plan to add a sleeve and use it as a wall hanging in our hallway between bedrooms.

I also bought 6 yds of interfacing and 8 yards of fabric for $6.00. I was happy with these finds.

Long Time

It sure has been a long time since I blogged. NY was fun I got a lot of stuff done for the wedding ... BIG Relief. I can't believe in 11 months we will be married. I am dreaming of making a wedding quilt. I wish we lived in the days where communities of women would get together and work with the bride to be on quilts for her home. I dream of those days lol. Of course I have only read about them in fiction books so maybe it never happened who knows.I still have not checked out the local guild I need to do that. I think it would be nice to have gals to quilt and shop with. Especially, since I keep sleeping in and missing my morning quilt chat !

I finished the pp star baby quilt and gave it to mom at the shower on Sunday. She really loved it. First time someone cried when they received a quilt of mine. Her husband called me to thank me too. Wow that made me feel good ! Here are some pics..
