This is one of my first quilting projects....Grandma's Flower Garden paper piecing. I loved doing it and I made it into a pillow with hand embroidery and some embellishing with little tiny buttons.This is my little heart mini-quilt that I've been working on with those great binding clips I was telling you about!Can you believe it! A candle actually called SUMMER? This is Crabtree & Eveleyn...ahhhh....let SUMMER begin!
Sorry to all my followers....you are out there aren't you? LOL! I took the weekend off, not really, but I was clearing and cleaning and trying to get a routine going around here which is actually working but doesn't give me as much interesting blog material....no wonder I have no followers....I"M BORING! But I don't bore myself so I guess that's the important part.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did and it was very nice because it was more balanced than usual....ie; a little cleaning, a little clearing (my thrift store box to take is growing and I've started a garage sale box now too)! I saved Sunday for Rn'R and REALLY TRIED to relax and I did....a little. I sew baby quilts for our Quilt Guild and I got one almost finished. I try to have both regular sewing (sewing machine) projects and then hand sewing projects for the in the evening when I watch t.v. I got my guest room cleaned up and part of the hallway and started on the linen closet. I found some great summer candles in the linen closet that I had forgotten about!
I love that when that happens...it's like a surprise gift!
I'm almost finished with my little heart mini-quilt. I finished hand quilting the hearts and used my new binding clips to keep the binding in place while I hand sewed it. I should be able to finish it tonight! Those binding clips are SO NICE! It makes the whole process much easier. If you're a quilter (I'm just a beginner) you will love these!
For some reason my pictures sometimes turn out clear and sometimes blurry. I think it's the "shaking" syndrome but I have a Fuji 4.1 mega pixel digital camera but maybe it's time to "upgrade"? If anyone has any solutions or suggestions please let me know meanwhile I apologize for the "sad" photography.
