Part 3 didn’t work out :(

I think that these two will end up as pin cushions….I don’t even have any more blue for the backing 😦

Here are the six together:

Now to clean up the mess and prepare some packages to go to the other side of the world.


Busy with Pye by my side!

He thinks I have too many scraps.

He’s waiting for me to go to bed….

Very slow going! Remind me that foundation paperpiecing little pieces can be a challenge!  Almost ready for Part 3!

A winner here!

My husband won the 2nd prize quilt at the Agricultural Fair! Go figure! I had two books of tickets and had forgotten to sell them when I was with people…:(….so I had to buy quite a few and instead of putting my name, I put his name.  This morning when I woke up, I told my husband to expect a phone call from my guild President this afternoon; a phone call telling him that he won a quilt! 🙂  He wasn’t home and it was me that took the call…so funny! It matches my living room and I think that it will stay here:

I had been looking for a nice afghan for this rocking chair….looks like I found the right blanket!

Here is the back:

So nice!

I have been working on Part 2 from yesterday….slow going because of stops and gos and interruptions.

And almost a month later!

I’ve been doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that….summer vacation only comes once year and I’ve been disciplined about computer/internet time.  I am stitching though:

Part 1:

I really can’t say what these are for but I will!  I got the pattern from the spring edition of Quiltmaker’s Small Quilts.

I have been doing a lot of reading and have gotten into the Steig Larson’s meleniuum series, devouring “The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.” I am taking advantage of my time off to read a bit, sew a bit and run a bit! Cleaning the house and organizing too as well as a few visits to Montreal and….yestereday I volunteered at our local Agricultural fair at our Quilt Guild stand….so much fun!

Our faithful President is hand stitching a beautiful quilt.  It is neat to pick up tips.  And check out the intricate foundation piecidng my friend did! So addictive!

This is one of the quilts that will drawn.  I sold many a ticket while there.  Don’t you love the banner?

Doesn’t our guild do beautiful work?

This is the second quilt that we are doing a draw for.  I WANT to win!

Two of my guild colleaugues who are doing the strips or a braid quilt and the next picture is an example of one.

I have the template and piles of scraps on my table at the moment….doodoodoodooodooo!

More quilts.

Well, I am off to quilt and to supervise the flooring that hubby is putting into the bedroom! 🙂
