Lil miss spaz ... this is her favorite place to take a nap - smack in between the tomato plants! :)
I have been having fun (before Lexie came) making houses... wonky houses for a funky quilt that is! These blocks are for the Bee Addicted 3 online bee. Each month a different person gets to choose what they want for their quilt. Then they send out fabrics they would like you to use, and their chosen design. In this case, Becca requested funky houses. Anything goes. All colors and prints, design and construct! Ok... call me a nerd... we all know the truth! LOL But this was WAYYY TOOO FUN!!! Now i will be sending the blocks to her... and she will put all the blocks she receives into a quilt (i think she's making this for one of her kids?) . Talk about a fun whimsical, totally creative quilt! All made by different people, and their interpretations! Cool huh? You can click on the bee addicted button on my side bar, and see some of the other blocks that have been posted if you want :)
doesn't this look like smurfs should be walking out of this house?? LOL
Since Lexie got here, i have not had any time down in my sewing room. Soooo since i am a babysitting fool, but hate to sit with nothing to do, I started working on my handwork... little prim quilts for Christmas presents. :) My hand quilting is improving... still not great... but definitely getting better!
A while back I won a contest in my online group AAPG, and Kelley's box got here a week or two ago and I haven't had a chance to post and tell you about it! Check out this adorable needlepunched pillow with a big sheepie and strawberries!!!!!!!!!! I saw this a while ago in her unfinished projects picture and i flipped over it!! LOL It was love at first site!! So when I opened the box she sent me and saw those berries I was doing the happy dance in a big way!! How dang cute is that, I ask you?!?!?!?!!! :D I have much love for it! LOL
And because Kelley is the sweetest most awesomest friend ever... she sent me this bunch of homespun squares that were left over from the last quilt her mom made her! OMGosh... well the happy dance just got MUCH bigger at that point!! LOLOL I can't stop petting them! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I started hand piecing them together... i think they will make a perfect border on a quilt i have planned! Hmm... i wonder who it will go to??
And last but not least this is a top i made a couple weeks ago. Really simple, but bright and cheery. I was making this as a Christmas gift... but once I got done, decided it doesn't suit the person I made it for. So will be making a different one... but hoping to get this basted and quilted sometime soon. Maybe this weekend when the kids can watch the puppy??
Oh.. this was the Flea Market Fancy quilt from Crazy Mom Quilts (on sidebar) if you like it and want to make one. I just LOVE her blog, and all those awesome quilts she makes! Great tutes too!
Please pray for me. LOL Pray i can keep my sense of humor (and patience.. but definitely NOT praying for patience!!) through potty and barking training!
Hope you have a very blessed and creative day!
