my latest project

Well, my sewing buddy Penny couldn't make it to my house for sew day to finish quilting our table toppers. So I decided to make myself some pot holders. She found these cute patterns on line. I have to say they were a little challenging because some had set in seams.

I think they turned out cute. As you can see in the photo, I did had Warwick, my other sewing buddy. She has a basket next to me on my sewing table.

First I would like to say thank you Dawn for your kind words. You are such a sweety pie.

Thought I would share some photos of out trip to the Redding gun & antique show.
This is Gregg in front of his display table reading a letter a soldier wrote to his mom during WWII. (the letter is to the soldier's mom, not Gregg's mom) lol

This is his display table from his first showing in Placerville. I think it looks very nice.

While at the show I found this treasure. It's a lovey postage stamp quilt that I just fell in love with. On top of that it was a steal, the lady gave me such a good price. Needs a little TLC, but I can take care of that.
Isn't it pretty? It is hand pieced & hand quilted.

I just love touching it. Someone put a lot of work & love into this quilt, now I will love it.

Bye for now.

March 20th,

I spent a lovely day in my sewing room. I've been working on a little table topper with my friend Penny. She made hers in blues & mine is rose. I think I'm going to call it "Follow the Garden Path"

Here is a photo of one of the half sq. triangles. They are 1&1/2 in. unfinished. My were they small to work with. I think it turned out cute. It's layered & ready to quilt.

Better go start dinner.
