Christmas Tree Skirt

As I put the skirt around the Christmas Tree I am reminded just how long I have loved stitching.  I made this tree skirt when I was pregnant with my son.  Dustin is now 27, oh my now I feel old.

How many colors of green?

Do you try out thread colors before you start quilting?

First you have to decide if you want your thread to blend in or enhance your quilt.

Building Quilts

These great quilts were part of the display at the show in Shepherdsvile Ky.

Thanksgiving Lace

My Thanksgiving weekend was wonderful. I spent it in Greenville Sc with my daughter and new son-in-law. 
Rather than do any crazy black Friday shopping my Daughter And I visited her favorite pedicure spot and relaxed a bit.  Afterwards she took me to some of her best finds.  Resale Shops. 
My most wonderful find was this bag of vintage lace. I spent all of $3.00. 
My next find was a vintage oversized brown jacket. I plan to use the lace and other fun embellishments to make it fun.  More on that later.

Flying Geese

How do you create your flying greese?
I love to use half square triangles. It gives me the opportunity to mix and match even more fabrics.

Fearless Fabric Painting

I think this is fearless fabric painting at its best. This fabric was painted by Betty Fortner's 5 year old granddaughter. Betty created a great pillow from her fabrics.
