Wonderful Gifts

I received a wonderful gift.  It’s hand made, selected just for me and took a lot of time to complete.  A.  LOT.  OF.  TIME.  Which means I must be very special 🙂  So what do you think of it?  Isn’t it wonderful?  My DSD (dear step daughter for the uninitiated) made this as a birthday/Mother’s day present.  Thank you so much….it means so much to me.

So where might I hang this?  Well, I spend a lot of time in my office at work, so what better place for something that was made especially for me and makes me smile when I see it?  (And don’t even comment about my messy desk 😉 )

And here’s the other gift – the last of the 600 half square triangles for Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll waiting to be trimmed.  Woo hoo a great gift to myself 😉


June Design Wall #1

After returning from my trip, it’s been very quiet in the sewing room.  The mother/daughter quilt is on my design wall and that’s only because I just received it back from my mother recently!  I could have straighten it, couldn’t I have?  Oh, well.

I made the bottom row, sent it to my mother with scraps of some of the fabrics I used.  My mom added the top row and the sashing.  She used Kona black for the sashing which I like 🙂  I LOVE the blocks my mom added.  LOVE. THEM.

The Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative monthly quilt auction of AAQI Priority Quilts is underway, ending on Friday.  Check them out here.   Here’s my favorite one this time:

For the 3rd year in a row I participated in the annual spring rite of  the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Panties” by sending some new undies to Ami to dye.  This year’s batch is the best ever!!!!

Happy Quilting!!  Cherie
