Still unpacking.

I need to hang this in my sewing room so I'll see it everyday.

My favorite Binding tool

 I just use this little ruler, aligning the 1/4 inch up on the edge of the quilt top, and mark a dot pretty fast for me.

I like to sew a diagonal seam to match the seams joining the binding strips.

What do I do with this?

This is my oldest UFO.  I can't find the pattern/instructions.  I have a box of baggies of fabric cut up..I can't figure out the pattern.  I think my friend Bev K. had our guild make this many years ago.  I have a few yards of each fabric left is suppose to be a lap size.

The bad thing is, I didn't know what I was doing...that white fabric is a won't fit the other blocks.  This was in the day of making templates and I hand sewed the white pieces. (12 blocks pieced with a white BLEND!)

I will think on it a few days...but, more than likely it'll be back in the UFO box. If you have any ideas let me know.

I made a few shawls

I have a dear, sweet neighbor named Grace Learn who makes these wonderful shawls and I just had to make one too.  Here is the two I have made so far.  Working on another colorful one.  Which one do you think I can get away with wearing...I an old lady?   I can't wait to wear them.  Thanks to Grace I am addicted to making them and I love them! I am not sure my little granddaughter, Jolie, would like one......I want to make her one too.

My favorite quilting buddy came to see me!

Can you guess who is with Teena?  Glenn...of course...and little Danica, her granddaughter.  Isn't she a doll. I haven't seen Teena in many years.  What a joy it was to get to share an evening with her and Glenn.   (Thank you, thank you, thank you Glenn for venturing up and down these hills out of your way to come my way!)
