Still catching up

June Block

July Block

Here are two more Bunny Hill BOM blocks I have finished. I am working on August and before you know it, September's Block will be here and I will only need four more to make a quilt, YES!!!!

This is a very recent photo of my daughter Kathrine. She has the cutest girls and is finding a new life alone, as her husband passed away. You just never know what life will bring to you but she has been greatly been blessed. Her preschool starts on Tuesday and she has five budding students plus her four year old Brooke. She is keeping very busy and seems be happy all the time.

Happy Quilting,

Recovery seems a bit slow. I have however finished a few more redwork blocks. This has been an unexpected treat, while getting better. I am now up to block five and counting. I can't wait until the fifth of each month to be able to download another block.

Block for February

Block for March

Block for April

Block for May
I am so in hopes that I will feel better tomorrow and start again on my patterns for Fall Quilt Market.

Creative break

I just loved this cup that comes with it's own little glass spoon. There is just one problem with it . . . the handle gets hot because there is lead in it . . . I just repurposed it to hold things near the sewing machine.

I guess this is where I explain that I had a Gall Bladder attack and have been forced to take a creative break while recovering. I am feeling much better but have not yet started to finish my market projects.

That being said, I have been embroidering my BOM from Bunny Hill Designs. Anne makes the cutest things and I am on block 6 with my Red work blocks. (Photos tomorrow)
I rarely make something just for me and I am quite pleased with the feeling that has come from this project. Thank you Anne for giving me a moment to pause and remember to love myself as well as my creativity.

I miss my sewing studio. It is a bedroom lined with wonderful things and shelves of course. I need to straighted it up but since I have lost two weeks at least to this fun adventure, I will put that off and just plunge ahead with confidence that I will be ready when the Black Truck pulls out of AZ, headed for Texas in October . . .

I am feeling so blessed as I rest and do basically nothing all day while my dear husband calls and wants to know what he can bring me or if I want him to come home and sit by my side. . . I just love this Sweet Guy . . .

Happy Quilting,

Catching up

It is time to share my latest effort to catch up with the Bunny Hill BOM. January block is done and pressed. Two more almost done and working on number four. This is fun to just do something for myself. I am also working on the blocks with machine applique so I will have 2 quilts when I finish. Yeah!!

The new design is coming along nicely with some embroidery going tomorrow morning to my sister in California who is the artist. It will be beautiful when completed.

Happy Quilting,

Sneek Peek of something I am working on for Houston Quilt Market

Cute little purse I made today just for me. Just right for necessities.

So much to do, so little time . . . My favorite little bird that helps me sew daily.
