A few more pictures

Here are a few more pictures from our trip. I haven't taken a picture of my goodies yet because I'm sick (sigh...) Hopefully soon.

Here is Hannah while I was in JoAnn's fabrics- I wasn't in there that long!!

Practicing my sketching.
Hannah took all the pictures and the gardens were perfect for her to practice photography.
I guess that's all for now because it won't let me upload anymore :(
Have a great day!

I'm back!

My daughter Hannah and I went on a little trip recently. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed getting away. Here's a little glimpse:
Did some shopping :)

Went to lunch with my other daughter Danae :)
Got to see my son in his first marathon- GO Christopher!
Did some sight seeing :)

We had a really good time- I'll post some more pictures tomorrow. Maybe even show some of the goodies I got!
Have a wonderful Memorial day!

Cat quilt

Another quilt top finished! I'm really happy with this and can't wait to put it together and quilt it. I'm planning on hanging it in my room above my bed.
Don't the colors just make you happy?!
Have a wonderful week!

Red, white and wonky- finished!

Well, here it is- finished with quilting, binding and all! You don't want to know how long it's been waiting to be finished (at least 2 years...)
Here's some of the quilting up close:
It is VERY free motion and wonky. I learned a lot from machine quilting this. I am determined to learn how to do this!
Have a great Monday!

Mystery quilt top finished- new quilt started

Here is the mystery quilt top with the final border:
I really like the border fabric. Now I need to save up for the batting and backing! This is named "Mystery Solved" ( named by my hubby :) Next is a quilt I've started called "Fanciful Felines",
 a pattern by Laurel Burch.
I got the middle panel and some of the fabric a few years ago when we went to Cour d'laine in Idaho.
My goal is to finish a LOT of my quilts that I already have fabric for and patterns picked out. Makes you feel good doesn't it  to finish WIPs?
I hope you all have a great weekend working on things you love to do!
