Since We Last Spoke . . .

You may remember that I had some ripping to do before this quilt could be finished.
(Some quilting decisions deserve to die! ha!)

This time I kept things simple and classic - but not too safe!
I could have held back, but I think filling the flowers made this quilt even more fun to look at!

I also finished sewing some shields to donate to Days For Girls  - hygiene kits help girls live their lives every day of the month.

This beautifully pieced chevron quilt filled my frame completely.

Cozy flannel is always a great choice for a snuggly quilt.

House Update

Most of the floor tile has been installed and grouted, the walls have been primed, and the ceilings have been finished. (all said with suitable jumping-up-and-down and clapping of hands!!!)

The first coat of purple is on our feature wall in the living room, too! (and I love it!!!)

Our fireplace is waiting for installation - - - soon, I hear!
(Man, I don't envy that job. The thing weighs about 600 lbs.)

Plumbing and heating rough-in is almost finished, I think. (How would you like to put this puzzle together?)

Shower rough in - a pretty puzzle!

Still lots to be done, but before you know it, it'll be time for us to pack!

Try, Learn, & Grow!

  2. That wall!!! Fabulousness!! (though I would call it plum, rather than purple) It is so exciting how the house is coming together!! I'm happy-dancing right along with ya! :-)

    The quilting on the irish chain is oh-so-perfect. Hate that you had to spend time with your seam ripper to get there, though...

  7. Yes, sometimes quilting decisions deserve to die. Otherwise we wouldn't need stitch rippers. I absolutely LOVE how you finished the quilt. It's simply gorgeous. It might even be one of my faves. The house is looking great. It's so open and bright.
