Working and Playing

Published by under creating

I have been working on getting a few of my own quilts finished. When my mom gets home from Arizona, she will bring all the quilts that she and her sister have made to give to the mission. They will need to be quilted and that means I will be busy.

Here is the binding on my En Provence. I just put a sleeve on the back so I can hang it up on my quilt rack. Hubby had a new quilt rack made for me. It is so much easier to use. The old one was such a pain that I never wanted to put up new quilts. Now I can change the quilts more often.

Brrr, It Is Cold Outside

Published by under creating

I never, ever, thought I would say it but I have been enjoying the cold weather. Schools and churches have been closed which means everyone is supposed to stay home and sew! I got busy working on clue #4 for the En Provence Mystery quilt.

That took a whole day. I was doing laundry and cleaning too so when I got finished, I was ready to work on more projects.

I had tried washing a table runner I made years ago but the spots did not come out. It made me sad but I decided to cut it up and make rug mugs out of it. I made 4 mug rugs that I just have to quilt. I plan on giving them, with a coffee mug and cocoa mix to friends next year. I might be ahead of the game for a change!

My mom and sisters each made one of these wall hangings a few years ago.
