Good morning everyone,
It is a beautiful rainy day here in my neck of the woods. It is exciting because California needs the rain so badly.

I thought I would share with you what I have been working on.
My Father was a preacher & when he passed away I took his ties planning on making something with them, and let me tell you he had a lot of ties. Well I have been making little quilts with them. Those little churn dashes are 3in. aren't they so cute?

 My friend Deb made a cute little quilt with Civil War fabrics & I loved it so much thought I would make one with my Father's ties.   What fun it has been going through his ties & remembering when he wore them.   I sure miss him.   Maybe I will make some for family members, hope they don't think it is dumb. 
Thank you for letting me share.
Hugs, Rebecca

Happy Valentine's Day a day late, hope you all had a good one.
Today my DH is taking me out to a nice restaurant for my Birthday, I know it will be great.

I need to finish quilting my heart wall hanging.  I couldn't help myself & made it pink, it's my signature color & makes me happy.

Well it is now 2014 so perhaps I should start posting on my blog again.  I had to take a break for personal reasons.  We shall see how I do.
I have been keeping busy sewing.  I made Christmas tree wall hangings for my girlfriends.  I made five in all & my was it a lot of work cutting all those squares.  I used the 2in twister tool & I strained my hand from the way you have to cut with that tiny tool.
I still want to make one for myself.  There is something I love about those twisters.

I made this sweet kitty for my friend Penny's birthday & it was a hit.  There is a whole series of different kittys.
Well then Phyllis told me she loved Penny's gift so much but wanted me to make her a bunny. Now I didn't have a bunny pattern, but had another kitty & added bunny ears.  I think it turned out so cute.
What do you think?  I just love those sweet eyes.
