We have a few birthday's today. My Grandson Matthew turns 14 and as I think of it it makes me feel old or at least older! I will be getting on the phone with him soon. Happy Birthday, Matthew!
Joyce Schmalz will be celebrating her birthday too. Joyce is my sister Sharon's Mother-in-law and she will recieve her Quilt today! I am excited. I can not wait to here what she thinks!
Happy Birthday, Joyce!
On to the next project......This is a new block for me! It's called "Lover's Knot" and I will be making several wallhangings or lap quilts for some other birthdays which will be coming up in spring and early summer.
I made this one two weeks ago and I took it with me when we visited Shawn and Amber last weekend. I wanted to make sure that the colors would work with thier bedspread. Much to my surprise, Amber decided to re-redecorate their bedroom. Oh, holy crap! Now what?
When we were there at Christmas, Amber had gotten a new bedspread so I made a mental note and collected fabric for her wallhanging accordingly. Now she has a totally different color scheme. Oh my, I never thought that I would run into this problem! I had already started my next one which would be a "Lover's Knot" project for Kyle and Christa. It has some special fabric which reminded me of Kyle! ... Amber's birthday is in May. Now what?
This week I found some new fabric but will I have enough time to do it...I hope so. I will have to get right on it! Will get the fabric washed and ready to go so I can work on it this week. Since I will be in Michigan and Boston the week after next I have alot to do! And now I guess I have an extra Wall hanging. Oh heck, I'll find someone to give it too!
Happy Easter to all, Happy Birthday to some and happy sewing to the rest......I guess I better get busy, time is a wasting... May your seams be straight and your colors bold and beautiful!
I have many passions and not enough time for them all. I sew alot and love fabric. I do family research in the winter or when ever the weather is bad. If the weather is good you may find me gardening or wandering through a cemetery to see if I can find the oldest stone or someone I might know. I am passionate about Alternative Energy and Simple Living. If I were 20 years younger, I would be working in the Wind Industry for sure.
