January 2009

Here it is the last day (night) of January and only one post. So much for blogging more often. But in my defence I have been busy sewing.

One of the groups I belong to make members a 6" heart block, HOF (Heart of Friendship) to share joy or sorrow with other members of the group. This is one I made this month.

This next block is 9" Friendship Star
variation and is a for a friend in another group.We are swapping One on One.

Here is my youngest son,Paul's birthday present.
I had planned on making 3 of my sons rag quilts for Christmas but time got away. Paul turned 23 this month.

Paul and my grandson Daniel

More of the purses or totes that I made.
I also finished my 1st quarter Thimbleberries 2009 BOM
plus a little extra (pinwheels)
I also wanted to work some more on my Nancy Rink BOM that I'm doing with TBLovers2... so my 31 sashing blocks are done. Woo Hoo!
I'm also working on my initial challenge quilt, but will post more about that latter.


2009 Are you Sure?

I can't believe we are already in the year 2009. Where has the time gone? It is day 9 of January. Whew!

Well here are some pictures of things I've made so far this year.

This is a bag I made from Pat Sloans pattern I found while reading her blog at


The next is my blocks for a BOM by Nancy Rink.
Mine is in pink and teal. These worked up pretty fast.

Next are a couple of blocks I'm doing with an online group.

Last, but not least is my scarf. I just finished it today. I crocheted it from silk yarn I bought from my friend Nikki who lives in TN. She has an Etsy store you can find and buy her recycled yarn at: http://my7kids.etsy.com/
