Oh My! Lots to Catch up!

WHEAT FIELD 2014

 

   Hello All!   So much to catch up on and such a busy spring I hardly know where to start! 

    But will start with a greatful heart for bountiful rains in June/July.  It’s end of July and flowerbed bursting like spring.  This is view of field to the north, out my kitchen window.  Between the rain and rain barrels, have not had to use “paid for” water!

 

 

 

SUNFLWR 2

 

  Surprise!   Have several “volunteer” sunflowers from the winter bird seed.  HA!  The sunflowers have had visits from butterflies, sphinx moths, and a seed-eating goldfinch who resembled Cookie Monster the way he went after that flower.

 

 

 

PROMISE BANNER 2014

 

   This beautiful photo comes from Miss Sherry right here in Kansas.  She enlarged my “PROMISE ETERNAL” pattern to banner size for her church, and her quilt group hand quilted it.  What a precious gift to the church.

        Thanks again to Miss Sherry for the pic – I LOVE to see your creations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ZIP LINE

 

   Am working like crazy on new patterns for Houston Quilt Market, the end for October.  This is:   ZIP LINE

      ZIP LINE is made from a Bali Pop package (TidePool) of 2-1/2″ strips from Hoffman.  I liked the design on graph paper, but am thrilled at how photogenic it is!

      So much more to share about historic family reunion, a wedding in Florida, and more pattern news!

      More to come…………..

CREATIVITY INSPIRED……..

PROMISE QUILT

I LOVE KNOWING I’VE INSPIRED CREATIVITY IN OTHERS!  THIS QUILT IS A CREATION BY MISS LINDA T  (PRAIRIE QUILT GUILD, WICHITA KS)  FOR HER CHURCH’S 75TH ANNIVERSARY.  THE CENTER MEDALLION IS MY “PROMISE ETERNAL” WALL HANGING.  MISS LINDA THEN DESIGNED THE REST OF THE  QUILT.   WHAT A LOVELY TRIBUTE!

 

 

 

 

FREEBIE SEWING

 

MEET “FREEBIE” THE COCKATIEL, ANOTHER SEWING ROOM ASSISTANT.   A FEW MONTHS AGO, SOMEONE LEFT HIM OUTSIDE A PETSTORE WHERE MY HUSBAND’S AUNT WORKS.  LONG STORY SHORT, WE GAVE HIM (OR HER?) A TRIAL RUN, AND HE’S STILL HERE!  HE WOLF WHISTLES, AND DOES ANOTHER LITTLE TUNE, AND SAYS HELLO.  HE MAKES ALL KINDS OF CHIRPING/CLUCKING NOISES, AND SEEMS TO WANT TO CONVERSE WITH THE DOGS.

 

 

 

FREEBIE COMPUTER

 

FREEBIE AND I ARE MADLY WORKING ON COMPUTER TO GET NEW DESIGNS READY FOR FALL HOUSTON MARKET.  MY FIRST TRY AT USING MY PHONE CAMERA IN “REVERSE” MODE.  MY SISTER NOTICES I ALWAYS HAVE A “PROTECTOR” TOWEL OVER MY SHOULDER!  HA!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!!

Busy, Blessed, and Joyful was the Christmas holiday with family.  Sharing the year’s events, playing volleyball, chasing each other on go carts, and eating, of course!

But I admit I’m anxious to get back to the sewing machine with all the new designs popping around in my head, like a new t-shirt quilt pattern, tablerunners, and baby quilts.

Shipped off lots of patterns for a test run in two national stores, so am thrilled at the possibilities that could bring, including the cross pattern above.    I’m to teach a class at Picket Fence Quilt Company  on crayon tinting/embroidery coming soon.  Bought a brand new box of crayons just for that project – too fun!  Have the coloring done, now must go upstairs and prepare to get started with the embroidery.

Joyful Stitching to you!
