H quilt

A quilt for baby H, who lives by the sea...

More recent quilts...

A new favorite

I was working through my scrap bins for this one, and just love all the different colors and fabrics, and it's backed with the prettiest flannel.

Catching up before summer vacation!

I have been making quilts, starting quilts, and finishing old quilts. I have also had foot surgery, and spent 10 days laying under a quilt!

Here are some things I've been working on. (They seem to make it onto Facebook, but not my forgotten blog... please forgive the repeats, if you follow me on FB!)

 These are supposed to look like wonky windows, showcasing the Summer House line of fabric... Hopefully it will become a quilt one day.

Here's my dog helping out...

I decided that since I have so much fabric, I need to make some quick, easy, but pretty little baby blankets. This is approx 30x36.

Here's another small blanket.

And a couple more for baby girls -

And another. This time for a baby boy...

And another - boy or girl. When I sell this one, the proceeds will go to a local farm that is in need of some help!

I have also made some doll quilts -

And here's and old one that I finished.

There's more, I think. I have to go through my very large pile and see what I forgot to photograph!

Ikea to the rescue!

This was my basement studio after my 6 yr old reclaimed his bedroom... 
(it was a tad neater than that for a few weeks so I could actually sew...)

Then, my sweet husband agreed to go down to IKEA with me to set me up with a nice room - a 3 hour round trip. It was a work day for him, so we had to sit and make phone calls here and there. I really liked that floral chair - it was very comfy and pretty!

Eventually, we made it to the check out line. We didn't realize until we got home, that we'd only bought ONE leg for my new desk (and we needed TWO!)

And here we are, with the room pretty complete! My wonderful father in law picked up another desk leg for me, and all got build Easter weekend. Love my new rug too - pulls it all together and makes it really look like a pretty room vs the mud room side that is just feet away. I can also jump on the tread mill any time I want, as it's just inches away!

It was a happy Easter! Hope you had a wonderful one too!
