Today I started off by going to the Optometrist. First I dropped my glasses flat on the concrete in Vegas and scratched both lenses. Then while sewing yesterday and talking with Boo on the phone, out popped my lens. OMG I could not see to sew any longer. I remembered that I had bought this pair of over the counters. Man oh man they were not strong enough. But they were very stylish I might add. But looks aren't everything right?? LOL!!!!!!!!! I've been meaning to go for my eye test and keep putting it off. This got my butt moving and quick. The sewing must go on!! I got my new eye test and my new prescription. One week I'll have new glases. Oh yes I'll be modeling them right here for YOU!!
First off I'm gonna show you what i've been working on. I did alot of sewing this weekend. I've got so many unfinished projects in the sewing castle. It feels good to dig them out and complete. Most are almost finished but I just tucked them away. Of course while in there I have new things staring at me that I just can't resist so I start. I love this wallhanging. I'd make it bigger but I ran out of fabric. So a table quilt it'll be.
And here's my faithful little helper. It was so hot outside she couldnt stand it. She's saying, could you stand 110 degree heat if you were wearing a fur coat???? I think not!
Remember this?? I made the stitchery awhile ago. I'm gonna hand quilt it with a primitive stitch then make a pillow I think. Again you'll have to click on the photo to see all of this. I just can't get it to show up.
Ok, this quilt was done the same way as the red/white one but it just lost the design so I made them into circles. I like it better this way. For some reason 30's quilts don't photograph well for me.
Nancy No Blog looky what I found!!!!! PORCH SWING fabrics. Since someone NEVER sent yours back to you, I've got you covered!!! Everything happens for a reason remember??? She can just keep it. Obviously she needs it more than you. I think I have enough for both of us. How much do you need? LOL!! Maybe we could get together and make a few king size quilts.
SORRY CUPCAKE SWAP IS CLOSED IF YOU SIGNED UP THIS MORNING YOUR IN. I'LL BE EMAILING YOU SOON WITH YOUR SWAP PARTNER.

Ok, now for my swap!!! I've been wanting to do a CUPCAKE swap for sometime. I know there are several out there but I still wanted to host one too. So hopefully you'll wanna sign up too. Here's my idea.
