This is the left side of the top. The houses are from Tonye Belinda Philips pattern. The car pattern is from the book Dogs and cats by Lynette Anderson. Can you see the dog sitting in side? Another house and another and another grrrrrr, blogger! tip your head and look at this one. See the dog? It is from the book Cats and dogs. I have all of the houses appliqued on this top and the next step is the trees, then the fun stuff... embellishments. here is what it looks like so far. It will be a pillow cover for a body pillow that will sit on a couch for my grand kids. So far I am loving it.
Well ,she is 24 but home for a few days. No matter how old she gets she will always be my baby.
And this monster tractor is a stomper. It is what my son has been driving nights for a month. It is designed so that those wheels stomp the rice stubble into the ground so it rots over the winter when the fields are flooded. Cuts down on the amount of acres that are burned.
And here are rice fields full of Ducks and Swans and Geese. I love the noise they make. I love it when the sky is full of them and they are honking like crazy. One of my favorite things in the whole world.
I have a love of Patience Brewster and her quirky xmas stuff. Only wish I could have been able to afford more of it. So here is my little set up. Now to get wrapping. Went over to my DIL's this weekend where it was Santa's bakeshop. Each year for Xmas she and her mom and sister make a gazillion cookies. The air was sweet and the cookies were oh so yummy. fudge, yummmmm
18 inch square all laid out for the sewing to begin pieces laid out but not sewn down yet decided I like the yo yo's the other way better Here they are all laid out and ready to sew. More images later..
My dad and I took a little drive on Thanksgiving day while the turkey was cooking. Here is where we ended up. Half Moon Bay California. It was a picture perfect day. If you look carefully in the distance you can see (25 miles away) the Farallon Islands. One lone sail boat enjoying the day
I started this quilt on Monday evening after work Could only work on it a little bit on Tuesday evening And Wednesday evening at 10:22 P.M. I finished it!!!!!!! It is about 57-58 inches square. Of course I had all the lights in the house on but the pictures are still a little dark. And there was much rejoicing!
From this book This pattern (grrrr blogger) this is the quilt And this is my center. I am using the fabric line Full Sun by Willowberry Lane and Maywood Studio. I started collecting this line about 2 years ago and have finally found a quilt to make with it. My border is going to be different fabrics from the line. I hope to have it finished by Friday.
I own one of these and I think it is awesome, it is a reproduction bottle drying rack. Intended to hang bottles upside down on to dry. Well mine sits in a space above my living room on one of those shelves built into the room. There is nothing on it. my question is.... should you accept. What would you put on it for xmas decoration? The prongs are about 3 inches long. I would love to put ornaments of some sort on them but how? I need some creative people to help me out here. Thanks in advance! Lizzie
I plan on starting alot of projects in the next few weeks so I will have hand work ready to go over Thanksgiving vacation. Here is yet another. Lots of plans for this one. There will be flowers as well.
