Finished Quilt

I finally finished one of the quilts that I have been working on this past year. You will probably recognize this quilt right away as I have been sharing each hand embroidered block with you as I have completed it. This quilt may have taken me a little longer than usual to complete, but I love the finished result. My good friend, Sharon Mominee, machine quilted this quilt for me and I am more than pleased with her artistic work on it. Thanks so much Sharon! (Isn't it lovely?) Here is the finished quilt: And here are a couple of close ups of two of the blocks. Again.. I used the Sulky Blendable 12 wt. thread to embroider with. Try some handwork yourself... it is very relaxing. Happy sewing! Fondly, Debbie

New Hat For Keira

The kids always go beach camping each summer so I decided to make a hat for Keira out of some scraps left over from another project... you may recognize the fabric! ;-) The pattern is quite easy and the hat goes together rather quickly so this makes it a plus in my book. (The hat somewhat reminds me of those fedora hats that are so popular right now.) The pattern provides 4 different sizes so I can use this pattern for my other little munchkins that need some coverage from the summer heat. You'll really love being able to use up some of those larger pieces of fabric that are laying around in your stash bins.. I mean resource center! P. S. I have finally finished one of the quilts that I have been sharing the blocks with you on this blog site. Guess which one. You'll see it next time. Until then..... Debbie
