I will have to start quilting my finished tops..I guess













I have been working on the Dick and Jane Quilt Kit by Michael Miller. I purchased it from http://www.fatquartershop.com/. I am almost done. I have two more borders to put on. I am a little slow. It is fun to do. It brought back memories of when I was in school many moons ago. We learned to read slowly one word at a time. Look! Look Sally! See Spot! So this quilt is certainly a lot of fun to do. Do you think years from now there will be an Apple Computer Quilt Kit? hmmm...never know! Or a Microsoft Quilt Kit? One showing pictures of computer screens with mouse pads, cursors, etc. How technology has changed our world. That is something to think about.

I also made the Country Flag by Eleanor Burns of http://www.quiltinaday.com/. That is ready to be quilted. I enjoyed making that. I didn't use the basic red, white and blues. I went with a more primitive selection. Another project that is ready to be quilted is the Sangria Tablerunner by Thimbleberries. I am excited to get that done. I have new dishes and the colors will fit in just nicely.

Another project I am excited to start is called Dolly's House Quilt by Michelle Crawford of http://www.flowerboxquilts.com/. I have ordered from her before. I love her designs. I believe that is what I will finish next. That is what I have been trying to do this month so far. It has been slow because of recouping from surgery. I have not been feeling that well. Quilting, or piecing is my therapy!
I guess some of you girls are doing some stitchery. I have been doing some needle punch. I love it. My love for hand work is phenomenal. I also have been doing some Hawaiian Applique. Oh and my grandson's Christmas Stocking, that is needlepoint! I pray I get it done in time for Christmas this year. The hands can only take so much. I feel like all of this quilting, fabric, needlework, etc. is like being in a candy store, too much and you just don't know what you want to do, and staying focused is tough! Is that why there are UFO'S? hehehe.....

oh yes, you know how the old saying goes... so many quilts... so little time! I love handwork too, embroidery or needle turn applique. Nice blog Erin! I'll be back as my California Govenor says :-)
