My little sister is not so little.
I made a list of all my started projects...I need to finish some.
I started with my t-shirt quilt. It turned out great! Here are all the blocks.
I added purple sashing, but didn't have enough of that for the border. Yay, I purchased the backing so now I need to get it layered for quilting.
Quinn hung out with my while I was sewing one day. He painted a lovely waterfall scene for his bedroom.
I made a purse for my cousin a few months ago and she requested another. Here is her bright, sparkly new purse.
I've also been plugging away at my denim/flannel quilt. It doesn't have any batting and I tried something new with the quilting. I used a thick thread and did large stitches. This REALLY hurt my poor arthritic (or whatever is wrong with them) hands. It is now complete, I need to take a finished picture.
We did something a few weeks ago that we haven't done in years. I love Nebraska and if I were to follow sports and cheer for any team I would choose the Huskers. But, I don't truly care much for sports. Watching them play football is nice now and again. We went to my aunt's house and watched a Husker game.
In our many trips to Aunt Beth's, dad and Haley formed a bond. Can't you tell he is excited?!
We went and watched Grandma perform in a play for her job. Hehe, it was very silly. She's the "blonde" one on the right hand side.
I started this quilt for someone, but I decided to give them something else. I got it layered and basted. Yay, I love projects.
Look back at the first picture. Someone got a haircut!
My little sister is growing up:)
Our dining room table is showing some wear. My parents got it when they first got married. I decided it was time to give it a facelift. So I used the rest of the goop I had to remove the old varnish and polyurethane.
The kids helped me. We sanded it down.
It is now stained a lovely "oak" color and is so shiny with the new coats of polyurethane.
A new project that I have taken on is a t-shirt quilt for a friend. Here are the first of the blocks, Jenny:)
