Life Happenings

I didn’t mean to be away from the blog for so long.  I came to say I haven’t been sewing much.  But when I scrolled photos I discovered I was a fibber.  In addition to cleaning up bags of scraps by making bindings I’ve had three new starts!  Plus, I’ve made in excess of 15 bings.  I need to get busy quilting apparently.

I was sorting through kits and saw this one.  Got bit by a bug and decided to make it.  I still have to miter the borders.  I wanted to add another yellow and miscue a green so went to my newly organized stash and found exactly what I needed!

While sorting fabric I came across panels and coordinating yardage that I was not interested in using.  One set was hunting dogs.  My brother loved his Labrador.  I also wanted to make him a 60th birthday quilt.  Here it is!  To be quilted.


When I got these to this point I needed a piecing project for away from home.  Out came a FQ bundle I was gifted.  I’m short a few blocks but here’s a trial layout.  About half the needed blocks.  Cathedral Beads.

Time ran out on me before vacation.  We headed for Tennessee.  Duchess and Chip.  All the sites to see.  All the new smells!

Vacation without an issue wouldn’t be vacation for us.

Homemade water sprinkler!

When backing the trike out of the toy hauler someone buried a tail pipe.  It stalled immediately.  Luckily three gentlemen came to our rescue and it’s running fine!

Will share more vacation adventures soon.

Stay quilty my friends.
