So let me see, looks like the last time I posted any quilty info was back in June. Since then, I made a quilt for baby Emma, My #2/Friend/Co-worker,I met Maria when I Started working for Mountain Land Rehab. Maria is the one that I helped to make the Winnie The Pooh quilt fo her little man Ethan, now she has her beautiful little Emma... and Emma has this little quilt.
The other quilt I made was for a lady that lives in MA. She was vacationing in June here in Utah, saw my KSL ad and contacted me about making a quilt for her to give her husband for Christmas. I started out pretty doing pretty good with this one, then ran out of time so had to call for reinforcements!! Micki came over several times in Oct & Nov to help with the layout so I could just sew... and sew... and sew some more. Thanks for the Help Micki!!! The quilt I made for her turned out really great!! It is all flannel and toasty warm!!!
Then last night I started a Sock Monkey quilt ~ I had been looking for Sock Monkey Embroidery designs for a couple weeks. They were just sent via Email this morning, & I am REALLY EXCITED about starting on them. I did a rough layout for the fabric last night..... OK so I was up till 2AM working on the layout :-) but here it is so far, I will start doing an embroidery later today. My goal is to get just 1 wmbroidery done today, then pics next weekend :-) Let me know what you think :-)
First however comes finishing the laundry I started yesterday (yeah I know... it was Christmas) Maybe I will even start taking down & puttin away Christmas. I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday and are making fun plans for the new year.
Till next time ~ do something creative that will make you happy ~
((from me to you))

Doc is teaching me Picasa ~ I am trying to remember all of that he is saying ~ yes the key word there is TRYING! Hopefully before the end of May I will have 3 slide shows posted ~ maybe even more!! When I learn it, and it is up and running, it will be really cool. OK maybe it will be more like the end of summer ~ but hey ~ I need to set my goals right???
LOL ~I set goals for myself all the time .... sometimes I even get things done that are on the list :-) For example, my list that I made for myself EARLY yesterday morning for the things I needed to get done this weekend ~ well it is 7PM on Sunday night and I have about 1/4 of my list crossed off. Wow that is'nt very good is it ...... I really need to get on the stick!!
This past week has been really busy for me. I finished 2 quilts for Pam, and another lady called me that I quilted for last Dec. She brought me a quilt that needs to be all finished by this coming Thursday, including the binding. Well the quilting is done ~ it's squared up and I am almost 3/4 of the way around with the binding. Yea me!!
OK so dinner is ready ~ so I better get. But after dinner I AM GOING BACK DOWNSTAIRS but just to finish 1 more thing on my list..... OK maybe 2 more things. LOL ~ OK, maybe I am dreaming again.
Well wish me luck ~ and you all have a PRODUCTIVE week ~ and do something fun & creative while you are at it. See you next weekend!

This is what happened... the sun came out .... the sky was blue The Easter flag uncurled.... Then it snowed again LOL. All in all it was a beautiful day! Let me see... in the way of quilting ~ I finished 2 quilts for Pam since last weekend, and when she came to pick them up, she left 2 with me. Yesterday I finished another for her and today got another one started. I was hoping to have it finished for her to pick up tomorrow... but alas ~ problems with the tension again. Oh and speaking of finished quilts.... here is the brown dinosaur quilt that I finished a week ago. It has been delivered to the parents-to-be and I have been told that they love it. Now if I could just find the backing for the red & blue dinos, I would be thrilled! That picture will have to wait for a while though ~ got too much going on right now to fret over that one :-) Well it is getting late and I need to get up and go to work tomorrow.... the weekends just fly by too darn fast!! Hope you all have a great week ~ and remember to cherish those you love.
Do something creative & enjoy!!

these are for boys so we have dinosaurs!!! In looking at my stash I decided to do the first one in browns.... HOLY COW!!!! It is so cute, I started cutting out the fabric on 12/31 at like 7:30 AM and had the top together along with 3 of the 5 embroidery designs before going to bed .... just after midnight. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Now I need to go get something for the backing..... but first need to start another one ~ this one is for the cousin of the brown one..... so it will have dinos on it too...... but in shades of blue with red and the dinos will match :-). It is a work in progress.... but I am HOPING to have the top together by mid week and get the embroidery done by the weekend....
